I’m not quite ready to give up my sandals just yet, but I will gladly spend more time indoors — there’s so much to watch and listen to, after all.
So count me in for new Hulu series “The Patient” in which Carell stars as a therapist whose patient (played by Domhnall Gleeson) takes him hostage, confesses to being a serial killer and demands to be cured of his homicidal ways.
Sounds easy enough, right?
It’s streaming on Hulu now.
‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Season 3
I love how, after all these years, there is still more of the “Star Trek” universe to explore.
In this animated series, the support crew of the starship USS Cerritos have their stories told. Season 3 finds the ship impounded and the crew seeking justice for their captain, as well as engaged in all sorts of other interplanetary hijinks.
Sci-fi, comedy and animation make for an entertaining trio.
The first two episodes of the new season are streaming on Paramount+.
‘The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family’
Long-time Tudorphile over here, so this new PBS series is right up my alley.
A three-part historical documentary, “The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family” charts the meteoric rise — and equally seismic fall — of the Boleyn family in Tudor England.
Two things to listen to
‘The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!‘ by Megadeth
Thrash metal heavyweights Megadeth has a way with album titles and their latest is no exception.
“The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!” is their latest record and no, it’s not about the pandemic.
If anyone can rock to that, it’s Megadeth.
The album is out now.
‘Yungblud’ by Yungblud
“The difference here is that I have thought and felt this record so deeply,’ he wrote. “I went to a part of myself that I didn’t know was there.”
The album is also out now.
One thing to talk about
My mom is a big fan of TLC’s reality series “Sister Wives,” so consequently I have been kept up to date on its star Kody Brown and his family. (TLC is also owned by CNN’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.)
“I get to live life for me,” the 50-year-old said. “My whole world has changed, and every single cell in my body is happier.”
One of the most interesting things to me about “Sister Wives” was the concept of multiple women sharing the same husband and blending their families. Well it turns out that Brown, who shares six children with her now ex, lost interest in that kind of life.
“I started thinking maybe this isn’t working for me,” she said. “And then I stopped believing in polygamy. I realized I didn’t really want to live it anymore. I didn’t like sharing a husband or feeling like I wasn’t important.”
The importance of finding what makes you happy can’t be overstated. Best of luck to her.
Something to sip on
I love this time for Solange Knowles.
The multi-talented, multi-hyphenate creative is getting her art out there more than ever before.
“Documentation with still photography has always been really important,” she told the publication. “For this work to be able to live on, to be archived, and shared throughout history, I actually had us redo this performance without an audience to capture how the energy force of the performance shifted.”
Being the younger sister of Beyoncé can’t be easy, so I am thrilled to see Knowles carving her own legacy in the arts.
