Watch Sanaa Lathan shave her for Netflix’s Nappily Ever After
August 2nd, 2018 under Netflix. [ Comments: none ]


Nappily Ever After is about a woman, who was all about her perfect hair. Until her locks were ruined during a hairdressing mishap. What is Violet Jones going to do with her imperfect do? She is going to free herself from it and all of her hair. Translation, she is going to shave it off!

You cannot play the part of a woman with a shaved head and not have one. Therefore, as Violet loses her security blanket, so did Sanaa Lathan. In the first trailer for the Netflix drama that begins to stream on September 21st, you get to see her do just that. You watch as she becomes a modern-day Samson. Unlike the biblical strongman, she gains strength without her mane. We are going to see her character grow with each inch of her hair that grows back.

Tony Danza looks naughty in The Good Cop
July 29th, 2018 under Josh Groban, Netflix, Taxi. [ Comments: none ]


Ever since Taxi, Tony Danza has pretty much been playing the good guy. Not on The Good Cop. It looks like he is going to be a former bad cop, whose son (Josh Groban) is the complete opposite. Grobs, who is naturally goofy, it is going to be uptight on the cop show. Strangely, it works really well for him. At least in the trailer for the Netflix show that begins streaming on September 21st. Mark your calendars, or they will arrest you.

Talking about arresting, want to see what else is coming up on Netflix this year, then click here!

One Day at a Time gets visited by One Day at a Time
July 24th, 2018 under Netflix. [ Comments: none ]


Netflix’s One Day at a Time already announced that Gloria Estefan will be a guest on the third season, and now KSite is reporting a cast member from the original series will also be appearing on the show this season. Glenn Scarpelli, who played Alex in the later seasons, will be playing Chad on this show. No other details are known at this time. But I can tell you the actor looks the same, except now he has salt and pepper hair.

He is not the first actor from that series to work on ODAAT. Mackenzie Phillips, who played Julie, has appeared on a few episodes while her husband from the sitcom, Michael Lembeck has directed an episode. Why Valerie Bertinelli has no guest starred on it is a mystery for me.

Disenchantment looks enchanting
July 22nd, 2018 under Netflix, The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]


I do not know about you, but I am still missing Galavant. Since then, I have been looking for something to replace it. Finally, a new show on Netflix will fill that hole on August 17th and it is Disenchantment. While it is not a musical, it is the next best thing. An animated show from the creator of The Simpsons.

It is the type of cartoon you cannot watch with your kids, but they will want to watch it too. It is something that is all ours and not theirs. Which is what the world needs more of!
