I had to read the Wikipedia plot summary. 6 of 10.
I watched the NIN/Hurt episode, t'was really good. 8.7 Matty RainsSong Exploder (Netflix)
If you are really into music or a songwriter, this show can be very cool at times. Or the episode just might be a about a song you really like.
They go all in depth about how the song came to be (the inspiration/songwriting/production).
My favorite episode so far was when they did REM’s “Losing My Religion”. The Alicia Keys one was quite good, too, and I had never even heard that song before watching the episode.
Finished a binge of Great British Bake Off season (2020 Covid one) and it wasn't very good. I assume it was a compressed filming and unconventional lodging (they were in a bubble) but the level of competition wasn't up to the standard of previous seasons. Combine that with a lackluster replacement for MC Sandy and it was pretty much a dud.
5/10 Stevie Stars.
It was the most anticipated show of 2021 for me. It was fantastic. The writers know how to balance nostalgia and good story telling.Cobra Kai is still an excellent guilty pleasure. I'm impressed by how the show is able to recycle and update 80's good vs. evil cheese with modern tropes without seeming too ridiculous.
This is very carefully crafted to please a wide audience. Smiles from start to finish.
Elizabeth Shue is aging like a fine wine.
8.5 Matty Rains for Season 3
Very good show. Watched the 1st season.So there's this show I've been hearing about for awhile: PEN15.
I haven't seen it but consider it an outstanding name for a show. PEN15. I feel like I should watch it just on principle.
Apparently it's about the angst of 13 year-old girls. That's definitely not my thing. But it's a comedy and the girls are played by 30-somethings. There's obviously an absurdist element to it.
And it's called PEN15.
