Blue Eye Samurai Review

Listen, it was hard to stop gushing about all the reasons we enjoyed Blue Eye Samurai. This show feels like something adult fans of anime have been waiting for. From its beautiful animation that contrasts the beauty with the brutal to the intriguing story and interesting characters. It really does check off all the boxes of what adult animation should be.

Most importantly, we all agree that we need at least one or two more seasons. There is still more to this story, and we need to know what happens next. Mizu’s body count still has space to rise. So grab all your anime-loving friends and watch it when it drops on Netflix November 3.

About Blue Eye Samurai

During the Edo-period in Japan, anyone with mixed blood is seen as impure. Mixed-race, blue-eyed Mizu (Maya Erskine) has been treated poorly all her life. But that has only made her stronger. After spending years training to become the greatest samurai in all of Japan, Mizu sets out in disguise to seek revenge on the white man responsible for killing her mother. It won’t be easy, as Abijah Fowler (Kenneth Branagh) is as ruthless as he is cunning.

S4E13: Director Raymond Persi Interview

Director Raymond Persi Interview

Director Raymond Persi Interview

What was it about Marci that made you sign on? Did you relate to her or do you just really love the character?

Raymond: I got really excited when I saw this script. First of all, because she’s such an interesting character. I think it’s easy to think she’s just sort of this quiet little kid that doesn’t say much. But if you look at the strips, she may not say much, but sometimes when she does, it can be kind of biting. So she’s got a little bit of snark to her, which I thought was fun. The other thing I thought was exciting was to write a story and make your main character someone who doesn’t want to be the main character.

You worked with an introvert expert for this special. How did that process work?

Raymond: [Our specialist] pointed out first of all that there’s many different kinds of introverts. Certain traits that we maybe attribute to introverts is not really part of being an introvert, like being afraid of crowds and things like that. He made us also think about the positives of being an introvert. When you’re someone who’s an introvert, it means that you want to take time to think before you act. So you might have a better solution than someone that just wants to jump in. It helped us kind of start to shape the script a little bit more to show how those aspects of Marci are really good things too.

If Raymond sounds familiar it’s because he is also the voice of everyone’s favorite Sloth. That’s right he is Flash from Zootopia! Naturally, we talked about that DMV scene for a second because after all it lives rent-free in all of our minds.

Listen to the complete interview below!

About One-of-a-Kind Marci

In “Snoopy Presents: One-of-a-Kind Marcie,” fans can see how Marcie, makes a monumental difference from behind the scenes both for her friends and her community. Marcie has many brilliant ideas to help those around her, but she would rather help without any spotlight. When she’s unexpectedly elected class president, sharing those ideas becomes a challenge.

S3E30: Interview With Uncle Travelling Matt, Dave Goelz

Interview With Uncle Travelling Matt

The Fraggles are back in an all-new holiday special debuting on on Apple TV+ November 18! We had the chance to sit down for an interview with Uncle Travelling Matt to learn more about The Night of the Lights. It went about as fraggily as you would expect.

Interview With Uncle Travelling Matt

When someone asks you if you want to talk with Uncle Travelling Matt, the answer is yes. We are no strangers to interviewing Fraggles but that didn’t prepare us for this. Uncle Matt (aka the legendary Dave Goelz) had questions for us. Questions we weren’t quite sure how to answer. I mean how would YOU explain Thursday. See what we mean?

But, that didn’t take away from all the fun we had speaking with him. We shared our views on holidays, fruit cake (root cake for Fraggles), and more. At the end of the day, the holidays are not about Thursday, but spending time with your loved ones.

About Fraggle Rock: The Night Of The Lights

It’s the Night of the Lights, the most Fraggily holiday of the year. The Rock is filled with songs and cheer. When Jamdolin (voiced by Daveed Diggs) encourages Wembley to make a special wish, the Fraggles head out on an adventure to find the brightest light. And along the way, they, might find the true meaning of the holiday.

Pam and Tommy Review

Starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan, Pam and Tommy chronicles one of the most infamous pop culture events ever, the release of their sex tape. This is a story that you think you know but you really don’t. The 8-part mini-series is here to tell the world Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s story, helping them reclaim a narrative that spun widely out of control.

Pam & Tommy shies away from nothing, including a hilarious exchange between Tommy and his talking member (voiced by Jason Mantzoukas). There are g-strings, nudity, and lots of love. As fun as it is, it also takes care to show the couple behind the tape, and just how devastating this was for them. Love them or hate them, they were victims.

What do you remember about the scandal? What do you think of the show?

Pam & Tommy premieres on Hulu on February 2, 2022. The first 3 episodes will be available with the rest released weekly.

Ep. 15: Saying Goodbye To Schitt’s Creek

Saying Goodbye To Schitt's Creek

Welcome back! In this episode, we are saying goodbye to one of our favorite shows- Schitt’s Creek. This show gave us so much over the last 6 seasons, it’s hard to believe it is all over.

Saying Goodbye To Schitt's Creek

Saying Goodbye To Schitt’s Creek

The finale gave David and Patrick their happily ever after, Alexis an opportunity to shine, and Moira dressed like a Priest similar to Robin Hood Men in Tights. The Roses are ready for their next big thing, and we are left wondering when we might see them all again.

This isn’t the first time we have gushed about the show or shared our favorite moments. If you’re a big fan like us, you should listen to our Why We Love Schitt’s Creek episode. I bet you will find yourself saying the same.

This last season was bittersweet and utter perfect Schitts, culminating with one of the best show finales I’ve seen in a long time. I laughed, cried, and laughed some more.

Schitt’s Creek Finale Making Us Cry

I pretty much kept it together until the wedding actually started. But the combination of the singing, Mariah Carey lyrics, and David’s vows got me right in the heart. It was absolutely beautiful.

Jana, on the other hand, was able to keep a dry eye until the “Best Wishes, Warmest Regards” special that aired after the show. That just made me cry more TBH.

Whether you cried or not, the celebration of love was something special that we all needed to experience during this crazy time in our lives.

A Happy Ending

So many things I want to say about this one, but I won’t. You’ll have to listen because we cracked up over that moment. Also, I didn’t even catch the reference at the end of the show but Jana did! I think I was too busy crying and laughing at Moira.

Schitt’s Creek is over, now what?

Although the schedule is TBD right now due to everything going on, look for Schitt’s Creek: The Farewell Tour to come to a city near you. This one-night event brings the cast to the stage for an interactive Q&A with the audience. I’m anxiously awaiting the new dates here on the east coast.

Now is the time to binge new shows. Try “Superstore,” “Kim’s Convenience,” and “Community,” to start with. Need more recommendations? Read the 20 Best TV Shows to Binge Watch Right Now and Best Shows to Binge Watch.

Plus you can always go back and binge Schitt’s Creek. Find seasons 1-5 on Netflix. The final season has no release date as of yet for the US. Ashley is going back to the beginning of Schitt’s because she thinks like “Friends,” it will always be funny.

Ep: 10 Schitt’s Creek Final Season

Schitt's Creek Final Season

Schitt’s Creek final season has officially begun and we couldn’t be more in love with what we have seen so far. David as a bridezilla, Stevie in her maid of honor duties, and Alexis being well Alexis.

Is there anything more awkward yet hilarious than a David and Alexis apology? I don’t think so. As Stevie said, it was like watching a train wreck, and I laughed so hard.

Another favorite moment, particularly of Jana’s, was Alexis describing her flying experiences. First of all, she has clearly NEVER flown anything other than first class. Second, she claims she would rather sleep at the airport for a month than apologize to David.

If you have ever had to spend any amount of time in an airport due to a delay or canceled flight you know how miserable it is. Alexis could not handle it. Although thinking about it, maybe they should do some Schitt’s Creek shorts and this would be one of the episodes.

Moira taking over the social media for Interflix was genius. I wish Catherine O’Hara would take over the official Schitt’s Creek account as herself or as Moira. According to this tweet, it looks like they’ve asked and she has declined.

Talking about spouses, poor Ted who is not Ken! Coffee is needed clearly

Ep. 9: Why We Love Schitt’s Creek

Why We Love Schitt's Creek

Why We Love Schitt’s Creek

With Season 6 of “Schitt’s Creek” coming up, we had to dedicate this episode to why we love the show. From David to Moira, here are some reasons why we are obsessed. Let’s get checked into the Rosebud Motel.

Why We Love Schitt's Creek

Who on Schitt’s Creek would we hang out with?

We both agree that it would be a dream to hang out with the cast of “Schitt’s Creek,” either as their characters or who they are in real life. David would be our go-to bestie for sure. His sarcasm and wit make him ideal for our friends’ group. Dan Levy also speaks to me on a personal level with how much he loathes people coughing while traveling.

While David would be our bestie, we see ourselves like Stevie. Less fashionable than David with all the same sass and disdain. Either way we go, I bet there would be a lot of wine drinking and judging going on.

As much as Moira might not be the person you want to hang-out with, she has some of the best shade of the entire show. Where do you think David got it from? Also, Catherine O’Hara is amazing and I will hear no complaints.

Schitt’s Creek Season 6 begins Tuesday, January 7, 2020, on Pop TV here in the U.S. and on CBC in Canada. This is the final season of the Emmy nominated show and we are sad to see it go but looking forward to what Dan Levy and the cast have for us in the future.
