Big Mouth (2017)

The horrors of puberty are the fodder for this Netflix original series.

So far, it is hysterical.

In the first episode, one friend sees another without clothes and feels awkward and intimidated by his friend’s physical maturity.  Meanwhile the other friend is hounded by the hormone monster.

IMDB Score 8.3/10

 

Northern Exposure (1990)

Northern Exposure is a fun comedy, ostensibly about Dr. Joel Fleishman, but it is the ensemble cast that makes the show.  (Stealing the show is the character Ed).

A Doctor, to pay off his medical school debt, gets assigned to Sicily, Alaska, a tiny town as the only doctor.

One note, it is cheaper to get the series by seasons instead of the whole series together.

IMDB Score 8.3/10
Amazon Score 4.6/5

V Mini-Series (1983)

Aliens visit Earth asking for our help.  But some suspicious humans wonder what they really want.

This is clearly a TV movie, the acting is just OK and the plot is pretty standard.  It serves as a pilot for a two-season series the I’ve yet to watch.  I disagree with the ratings, I’d give it a 5/10.

IMDB Score 7.9/10
Amazon Score 4.4/5

 

Lost (2004-2010)

Lost was the runaway hit of the new millennium.

The show started out strong and grew better year after year until it ultimately sputtered in the final seasons.

IMDB Score 8.4/10

The Addams Family (1964)

They’re creepy and they’re kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They’re altogether ooky,
The Addams Family.

Their house is a museum
When people come to see ’em
They really are a scream
The Addams Family.

(Neat)
(Sweet)
(Petite)

So get a witch’s shawl on
A broomstick you can crawl on
We’re gonna pay a call on
The Addams Family.

IMDB Score 8.0/10
