Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “My Next Life as a Villainess became on of my favorite series the year it came out, and it still holds up, in my opinion, as a solid romantic comedy show, and (if you’re not a subtitle person) it’s also got a very good dub. I definitely recommend picking up a physical copy.” Blaine says, “nothing I’ve seen grabs me, but of the stuff I haven’t seen, Ghostbusters: Afterlife is right at the top. Bloody pandemic…”

  1. Brian says:

    I might watch Antlers. I read the short story and it was freaky as all get-out. I also went to High School with Keri Russell, so I end up watching almost everything she’s been in. (Which reminds me, I have The Americans on my to-watch list).

    Edit: I was thinking GB: Afterlife was the Paul Feig version. I’ll definitely be catching the new sequel (even if the reviews weren’t so hot)
