I love this show. I love everything about it. Well, except for the painfully beautiful Logan Browning aka DWP's weakest link.

The show' creator, the amazing, Justin Simien has created what most filmmakers and show runners only dream of; A perfect multi-perspective piece that includes the only thing that matters in any incident worth writing about - the complete and absolute personal view of each participant. Which is tough, trust me.

The entire season one is crafted in a way that it keeps telling the same story - the black face party - but every time from another character's point of view, and while considering the essence of what makes us do things as human, love, hate, sadness, pressure, pain. The script is just so damn smart and thoughtful, and funny and emotional, and yes, I am jealous.

The acting is pretty fucking fantastic as well! We are talking about a lineup that will make ANY PRIME TIME show, or mega film proud: Brandon P Bell Antoinette RobertsonDeRon HortonJohn Patrick Amedori, Jemar Michael and my favorite -Marque Richardson - all do an amazing job, and I can't wait for their Hollywood take over. 


One other nugget is the fact that Tina Mabry (one of my favorite young directors) and Barry Jenkins (oh, you know, Barry Jenkins) have director credit on a few episode and both leave their distinct footprint though respectful to the piece.

So, what's my problem? Relax. Logan Browning isn't on par with the cast, script or the directors. Sorry, but she isn't. And it's not that I am comparing her to the incomparable Tessa Thompson because I don't. I just didn't believe her acting most of the time. I still binged the show in 2 seating though. The show's creators and Netflix are working on season 2 as we speak, and if they decide to leave Logan as Sam, I hope they'll consider getting her some nonacting lessons.




Marc Maron is a funny guy. His style of uber realistic and dark comedy has been the perfect tone for a generation that has had enough but is, even more, fitting during Trump's America.

The opening bit talks about the day to day news blasts coming from the white house will have you nodding in sad agreement while you'll try laughing. He moves into the 'I am at the age where I only do what I want because I am about to die any minute' and set the grounds to 'remember the time when you realized your dad is an idiot?" and don't even get me started about the -I am over art...

The special is all that you can expect from Maron, a top comedian that is reminiscing the great Carlin with his wittiness and sense of timing. His best trait is the fact that you do believe he is suffering and just waiting to expire while writing his self-observational lazy bits.

I am not sure if I laughed or was just nodding in agreement throughout the Rolling Stones and the hat buying bits.

Watch the trailer here and then watch the full show on Netflix.  Oh,  and twitter that Mofo and give him love.




We wanted to create our own style of SNL. We failed. GOOD! The BLOX TV is all about an attempt at innovation. We are the content warriors and as such we want to be the first and the best. We wanted to create a show in which guest will come by, interviewed, and then we play a little. Well - this is what came out. We like it. So, shut it, mom!!!

SNL SNL snl snl

Saturday Night Live (abbreviated as SNL) is an American late-night live television sketch comedy and variety show created by Lorne Michaelsand developed by Dick Ebersol. The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title NBC's Saturday Night. The show's comedy sketches, which parody contemporary culture and politics, are performed by a large and varying cast of repertory and newer cast members. Each episode is hosted by a celebrity guest (who usually delivers an opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast) and features performances by a musical guest. An episode normally begins with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!", properly beginning the show.

In 1980, Michaels left the series to explore other opportunities. He was replaced by Jean Doumanian, who was replaced by Ebersol after a season of bad reviews. Ebersol ran the show until 1985, when Michaels returned; Michaels has remained since then. Many of SNL's cast found national stardom while appearing on the show, and achieved success in film and television, both in front of and behind the camera. Others associated with the show, such as writers, have gone on to successful careers creating, writing, or starring in TV and film.
