Bel-Air is not your parents Fresh Prince
January 10th, 2022 under Peacock, Will Smith. [ Comments: none ]

Peacock released the first full trailer for the dramatic take on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Bel-Air is not like the show we got to know in the ’90s. Gone is the goofiness, and it is replaced with realness.

That is not a bad thing because it looks really engaging. So much so, I hate that we have to wait until February 13th to stream the first three episodes. Then after Super Bowl Sunday, we will get one new episode per week.

What do you think of the trailer? Are you as blown away as I am?

MacGruber is back and better than ever
December 16th, 2021 under Peacock, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe, Will Forte. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 2007, the World got to know super soldier MacGruber on Saturday Night Live. Three years later, he graduated to the big screen for a feature film. Now, eleven years after, he has his own series on Peacock, and it starts streaming today.

When we last left off, it was MacGruber’s (Will Forte) wedding day to Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig). However, his mortal enemy Cunth showed up and tried to kill them. But MacGruber threw him off a cliff, shot him, and peed on his corpse. So everyone got a happy ending.

Or so we thought. MacGruber has been in prison for killing Cunth. However, he is about to get out because Queeth (Billy Zane) has kidnapped the President’s daughter. In order for POTUS to get her back, Queeth wants MacGruber. So the President says that MacGruber can get out for the exchange.

MacGruber agrees, even though he knows it will be a suicide mission. General Barrett Fasoose (Laurence Fishburne), who is now married to Vicki, takes him to the desert for the exchange. Unfortunately, things go wrong, and Queeth takes MacGruber.

Eventually, he escapes and is reunited with Vicki and Piper (Ryan Phillipe). They decide to take down Queeth, who is planning on destroying the World with a bioweapon.

MacGruber also wants to take out Queeth because he killed his mother and destroyed his father (Sam Elliott). But is he smart enough to do it? We are talking about MacGruber, who is good at blowing things up, and I am not only talking about with explosions. Thankfully, he is not doing it alone. He has Vicki and Piper to help him out with every hair-brained scheme he comes with to take down Queeth.

MacGruber is full of twists and turns. Just when you think you know what is going to happen next, they surprise you. That is what makes this the type of show you can binge in one sitting. Well, that and all the laughs that you will get by watching.

Even though it is Forte’s show, he shares the spotlight with his co-stars. How Phillippe doesn’t break down in hysterics through the eight episodes is beyond me. He deserves an award just for that. Wiig is also impressive with the role because she can keep up with Forte, even in the scenes where they are making love. And on that note, there is nudity. Did that get you to tune in?

MacGruber is just silly fun. There are days you need that, and this series delivers.

If you haven’t seen the movie, and are afraid you won’t know what is going on, don’t worry. Maya Rudolph, who played his first wife, sings a song to catch you up. So you are ready to go.

However, if you have seen the movie, then just like the film. It is Forte doing what he does best, and that is making us laugh with his wit. He is smart while playing stupid. That is not an easy task, but he is so good at it.

Peacock is giving us a Merry freaking Christmas with Days of our Lives
December 7th, 2021 under Peacock, TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

When I was a kid, I used to love watching how soap operas did Christmas because they made such a big deal about the holiday.

This year, Peacock wants to up the game, so they are giving us Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas on December 16th.

In the telemovie, Will Horton writes Christmas stories about his friends and family based on some of their favorite movie plotlines. However, they will all be filled with lots of twists and turns that only DOOL has perfected.

The special stars Deidre Hall, Alison Sweeney, Eileen Davidson, Jackée Harry, Drake Hogestyn, Camila Banus, Chandler Massey, Ari Zucker, Raven Bowens, Eric Martsolf, Billy Flynn, Paul Telfer, Lindsay Arnold, Lucas Adams, Carson Boatman, Greg Rikaart, Dan Feuerriegel, Zach Tinker and Blake Berris.

This is the second special that Peacock has done with the daytime drama. Back in September, they did a week-long limited series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem. I cannot wait to see what they do next and who they bring back for it.

Even Punky Power couldn’t save Punky Brewster
August 20th, 2021 under Peacock, Soleil Moon Frye. [ Comments: none ]

When NBC Universal announced that they were launching the streaming network Peacock, they revealed that they were doing a revival of Punky Brewster. Kids of the ’80s were like super excited to have her back.

But unfortunately, I found it to be a letdown. It felt like a completely different show that was not loyal to the original.

I guess I am not alone because Variety is reporting that Peacock cancelled the sitcom after 10 episodes.

Do you find this news grossaroo, or do you think they made the right choice?

The Frogger game show looks frogging amazing
August 19th, 2021 under Peacock. [ Comments: none ]

When Peacock announced that they were making a live-action game show based on the Frogger videogame, I was like, how are they going to do that? Today, we got a glimpse of it in the trailer.

It is Frogger meets Wipeout meets American Ninja Warrior, and I am all for it. As a viewer, not a competitor.

Are you going to be watching on September 9th as contestants get injured all in the hopes of winning $100,000? I will be there! But then again, Frogger is one of my favorite videogames.
