Sunday Morning Netflix

If you're anything like me. This is how you look on Sunday morning. Laying across the sofa.  Just looking at the screen. Not locked into some show that you can't take your eyes off of. No, never that. Staring at the screen for the last couple minutes of that TV series you fell in love with as it goes off. Coming to its last seconds. Watching the credits that you never cared to do before. Stalling for time. Cause you know what happens next. The moment we all hate. The time of not knowing. Not knowing what to watch next. 

We have all been here before. It's some of the worst feelings in this world. Watching something amazing and wanting more when it's no more to give. Trying to find a replacement to this amazing journey you just took in the theatrical of theater. 

Let me help you bridge the gap between that show that just ended and the one you watching that's coming to an end.  

 The Founder (Netflix) 
The Founder is a 2016 American biographical drama film directed by John Lee Hancock and written by Robert Siegel. The film stars Michael Keaton as businessman Ray Kroc and portrays the story of his creation of the McDonald's fast food chain. Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch co-star as McDonald's founders Richard and Maurice McDonald.

I'll be the first to admit, I knew nothing about the story of the most famous hamburger in the world. I didn't have no reason to go looking for it. I just know the food at McDonald's is cheap and the Big Mac and McFlurry were my teenage diet.  I have to say, I didn't see any of this coming. This was the biggest plot twist ever. This will leave you feeling some type of way. 

 Glow (Netflix) 
Set in Los Angeles in 1985, Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress, auditions along with dozens of other women in a fledgling professional wrestling promotion called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). She is at odds with GLOW's director Sam Sylvia due to her tendency to overact. When Ruth's former best friend, retired soap opera actress Debbie Eagan, arrives at the ring, their confrontation promises to either make or break the show. 

I always love watching something that is based on the true events in history.  I used to be the hugest wrestling fan when I was a kid. This was before my time but I would have watched this with the quickness. That's actually one of the problems in WWE. They don't have enough women matches. 

 Ozark (Netflix)
 Bateman portrays financial planner Marty Byrde, and Laura Linney portrays a homemaker turned real estate agent Wendy Byrde. Marty suddenly relocates the family from a Chicago suburb to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks after a money laundering scheme goes wrong, and he must pay off a debt to a Mexican drug lord.

I love the way in which this is shot. It's some of the most beautiful grades of color.  Great mixture of blues and gray. You feel like you in the environment. The thickness of the air, the fresh smell of the lake. This show puts Bateman in the space we have never seen before. I thought he was just this funny dude. Nah, don't box with in. He kills this role. 

That's it for now. Let me know on Twitter/Instagram what you think and what show I should start watching.
