TV Shows/Movies/Podcasts Mentioned:
- Catastrophe (Amazon Prime) – Pretty much the perfect comedy for the streaming era. It’s just 4 seasons with 6 episodes per season and each episode is only 30 minutes a piece. A hilarious and perfect take on marriage and having kids.
- Green Book – I’m not exactly going out on a limb by recommending the movie that won best picture at the Oscars but I enjoyed this one. Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali were a wonderful duo.
- Us – Michael came away confused by this new horror movie from Jordan Peele.
