‘Brews Brothers’ Review (Netflix Original)

‘Brews Brothers’ Review (Netflix Original)
Stars: Mike Castle, Alan Aisenberg, Carmen Flood, Marques Ray, James Earl, Mike Mitchell, Zach Reino, Inanna Sarkis, Flula Borg | Created by Greg Schaffer

Scrolling through Netflix’s “suggested shows” section and finding a programme called Brews Brothers was one of the most unusual recent finds I have to admit… Tasing a chance on another Netflix original this turned out to be entertaining and a bit of fun but if I had to chance to, I probably won’t watch it again.

To start with, the characters are almost too relatable. I did see myself and people I know in the characters which at times did make the comedy even funnier as I know someone who would do something that stupid but apart from this the characters were all a bit boring. They are ordinary people, with none of them really possessing any features I aspire for. The thing with relatability

Best TV to Watch/Stream in April: Beasties Doc, ‘Run,’ ‘Mrs. America’
Chances are, no matter how much television you normally watch, you’ve been watching more than usual lately. A lot more. We’re all stuck inside, bored to tears, and there’s only so many times you can watch the same Parks and Recreation reruns. (Except for the Snake Juice episode. That one has infinite replay value.) In the midst of all this bad news, the good news is that new TV shows and highly anticipated premieres continue to arrive with regularity. (At least for now: the Covid-19 pandemic has

Community, Extraction And More Headed To Netflix In April 2020

Community, Extraction And More Headed To Netflix In April 2020
Coronavirus has brought the world screeching to a halt.

Flights are grounded, international borders are closed and, in an effort to mitigate the loss of ticket sales, major Hollywood studios are fast-tracking new projects so that their theatrical release and VOD premiere are effectively one and the same.

Earlier this week, for instance, Universal announced plans to bring The Invisible Man and The Hunt to VOD platforms – this Friday, in fact – whereas Sony just confirmed that the Vin Diesel actioner Bloodshot will release via digital and mobile on March 24th. That’s next week.

Yes, Covid-19 has completely upended the very concept of ‘normal life’ for so many people. And with the World Health Organization urging folks to stay indoors and self-isolate, there is one thing that can help ease the angst of quarantine: Netflix.

And sure enough, the streaming giant has just compiled a list of new releases headed to the platform in April.
