Why Should You Watch: Atlanta ?

Number 1: It Get’s Way too Real If you have ever seen any comedies like Love, Flaked or BoJack Horseman you would start seeing a trend in the new, more popular comedy shows. They are all horribly depressing. Atlanta isn’t any different. It can be funny, but most of the time …

Review: NUTS’ The Pillowman

Pillowman! aaaa-AAAAAA-aaaah! Fighter of the…… lifetime-of-sadness-man? The Pillowman is essentially what you would get if you had Franz Kafka write an edition of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Instead of people turning into cockroaches, you get demons turning into people and then back into demons (metaphorically though, duh), …

Throwback: Great Music You Probably Missed – Ft. #sogonechallenge, Female R&B and Terrible Boyfriends

When we talk about 2000s R&B, the mind thinks of Chris Brown, Queen Bey, Usher and Ne-Yo. Forget them for a moment, because the early 2000s had some hella good female R&B music.  Music in 2016 is different, almost too different to the way things sounded a decade or two …

Why Should You Watch: Narcos ?

Number 1: It’s Unbelievable Magical Realism is a concept which was invented in Columbia. It’s where reality meets fiction, and things become so far fetched that you begin questioning if everything is real or not. That is the definition of Pablo Escobars drug cartel. The money, the drugs, the violence. You …

Throwback: Great TV Shows You Probably Missed Ft. Dating Tips, Dying Politicians and Action Spy Comedy

Dates – Realistic/Modern Day Dating Dating sucks. Relationships suck. People suck. But enough about my love life (or lack thereof).

Why Should You Watch: Mr. Robot ?

    Number 1: The Hacking isn’t People Slamming the Keyboard Now you may be asking what this means. In films like Hackers, or the Matrix, or Swordfish, when people want to hack any regards, all you see is a flurry of hand movements, cheesy lines like “Aaaaaaaaand we’re in”, and lines …

Throwback: Great Music You Probably Missed – Ft. American Punk Rock, Youth Anthems and Aussie Rap

If you’re reading this, you probably weren’t an American teenager. Neither was I, but the music I listened to and left blaring in my room would tell you otherwise.  Music in 2016 is different, almost too different to the way things sounded a decade or even two decades ago. Music …

Review: Frank Ocean’s “Blonde” (Album)

The amount of hype around Frank Ocean’s sophomore album was immense. The incredible success of Channel Orange as well as the constantly shifting release dates and ominous staircase building video streams set the bar incredibly high.

Review: The Conjuring 2 (Film)

  The Conjuring 2 is another masterful direction by James Wan, but the notoriously spooky franchise trades scares for story in its second entry. Ed and Lorraine Warren return to protect those in need but instead of the classic nuclear family scenario with a father, mother and child, the film …

Review: BoJack Horseman (Season 3)

“When you chuckle through the episode, it really sticks out when you’re left speechless.” Stranger Things is the Netflix show everyone’s talking about, but BoJack Horseman‘s third season needs attention. Just like BoJack himself. SPOILERS FOR THE FIRST TWO SEASONS, CONTINUE READING AT YOUR OWN RISK! The show picks up pretty …

What I Have Been Watching: Pokemon Indigo League

When Pokemon Go was released during winter break, it triggered a nostalgic flashback to my childhood growing up in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. The reason why I think the augmented reality application gained such widespread success and popularity is because nostalgia is a powerful tool in driving human action. …

Throwback: Great TV Shows You Probably Missed ft. Pushing Daisies, The Wire, Coupling

Television is a crowded space. Beyond Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Mr Robot and Suits, people don’t talk about much else. But there was a time when Twitter and Facebook didn’t dictate what you watched. In fact, the decision to watch something was often your own or by word of a trusted friend. …
