Hello from the temporary ABW field office in Prospect, South Australia.
It appears that with a spot of travelling on my schedule, I forgot to actually hit the Publish button on the weekly Always Be Streaming email. You may be unaware of such technical information, but hitting send is actually a vital part of the email process.
The big release this week is Coming 2 America. Reviews have been mixed, leaning negative. It’s a full weekend for me, so it may be an early week watch. Heck, I still haven’t seen the WandaVision finale - but considering I spent more than 30 seconds online without being hit by a massive spoiler, I presume there’s no Luke Skywalker cameo.
Because Eric LaSalle is not in Coming 2 America, I do think it is important to give the Coming 2 America audience the pleasures that the film is denying them.
On this week’s pod, Simon reviews Coming 2 America, Nomadland, and Chaos Walking. And I take a swing back to look at The Knick - one of the all-time great shows that there’s a good chance you haven’t watched (change that soon, I promise you’ll dig it).
We also talk to the General Manager from DOGTV, a streaming service for your dog.
