STREAMING REVIEWS–JUNE 2022–PART 4   Leave a comment

1) ” Jane Fonda & Lily Tomlin: Ladies Night Live”–Netflix–1 hour–part of the Netflix ‘Netflix is a joke festival’ being shown in separate statements–I LOVE Jane and Lily and would see them in anything anywhere because just seeing them make me smile–they basically introduce the acts, all who are women except at the end one man comes on–Jane and Lily answer questions that have been submitted by audience members–if only that was the hour but no we get comediennes who prove they can use the ‘f’ word as often as men and be just as ‘dirty’–Jane is the only one (sorry but Lily used it once!) who didn’t use it but then she wasn’t/isn’t a standup comic–sorry, I didn’t laugh once at any of the comics though Jane and Lily did make me smile!

2) “Spiderhead”–Netflix–1 hour & 47 minutes–I am not quite sure what kind of movie this is supposed to be–a mad scientist goes crazy or a sci-fi movie regarding control of minds–is it a take off or a farce or a comedy or thriller or what?!? All I can say is I watched it to the end and all I can tell you is that it a story of a doctor(?) who gives killers all kinds of drugs to control them but…….just from this film I have become a big fan of Chris Hemsworth, Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett–it’s hard to tell where the story is going but stick with it.

3) “Outer Range”–Prime–series–season 1–8 episodes–7 hours & 20 minutes–is this a sci-fi western or a western sci-fi? Is there a difference? There is a hole in the center of the earth (that I think goes into another world) on a ranch–people are thrown or jump into the hole and some return 8 years later, some don’t and who the heck is Autumn? Josh Brolin is an interesting actor who always gives a first rate performance as he does here and if you want to know some of the answers season 2 is waiting for you.

4) “Bathtubs Over Broadway”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour and 26 minutes–for many years there was a part of show business that many people didn’t know about called industrial shows–the shows employed many people who made a living working them or in between Broadway shows–many stars came from them and many established composers wrote the music for the shows–the shows were put on by big corporations for their employees–I know about them because my dad took me to 2 Milikin shows–one of the shows, in 1956, cost $3 million while the original production that year of “My Fair Lady” only cost $500,000–Steve Young who was a long time writer for the Late Show with David Letterman and became interested in the recordings of these shows when David started doing “Dave’s Record Collection”–he takes us on a journey looking for and finding these rare recordings and meets, introducing us to singers and dancers who did the show and makes this documentary a fascinating trip to ‘yesterday’–thanks to my Facebook friend who steered me to this.

5) “Toy Boy”–Netflix–Spanish series–season 1–13 episodes–11 hours & 5 minutes–all I can say is that it took me 3 episodes to realize that I had seen, and reviewed, this before and watched 2 seasons so it couldn’t have been THAT bad!

STREAMING REVIEW–JUNE–GAY PRIDE MONTH–PART 2   Leave a comment


“LIGHT IN  THE WATER” ON PEACOCK STREAMING
DOCUMENTARY–1 HOUR& 15 MINUTES– if you ever hear OR WAS ASKED OR ASKED “Why do ‘they’ need gay pride? What do they have to be proud of? What if I wanted to start a straight pride movement?” have them see this! If you are GAY see this and see why it is so important for you to vote in EVERY election!

From 2 guys starting a swim team & water polo club a ‘family’, a safe place and a new movement were found!

The fight for equality in sports is still one that we deal with on a daily basis in the LGBTQ community, however we have made some incredible strides over the past 50 years that has brought us much acceptance across the boards. It wasn’t always that easy, and a new documentary from LOGO proves that in a time when being openly gay was a lot more difficult than it is today.

 The film reveals the untold story of a group of gay men and women who found one another through their love of competitive swimming, ultimately becoming a family and a force for the LGBTQ sports movement.

   “The West Hollywood Aquatics Team – who also go by “WH2O” – were pioneers in gay sports. With a current roster of more than 180 individuals, the organization initially grew out of a group of athletes training for the first Gay Games in 1982. During a time when being gay and being an athlete was considered an oxymoron and the AIDS crisis only increased homophobia across the U.S., WH2O prioritized inclusion and dignity and combated stigma.

As one of the original members states, “if you could swim, you could live…or at least you were alive for that moment.” And another: “swimming was about celebrating and rising above all the darkness that was around us…and striving to show the word that we are not being wiped out by an illness.”

Light in the Water reveals the inside story of a group of trailblazers who personified the change they wanted to see and created a legacy for equality in sports that lives on in the team today.”

It is produced by Patty Ivins Specht and Lis Bartlett and directed by Bartlett. Executive Producers from Logo Documentary Films are Pamela Post and Taj Paxton.

A MUST SEE

Streaming Reviews–March 17, 2022   Leave a comment


1) “Who You Think I Am”–Prime Amazon–French film–1 hour & 41 minutes–if you are not familiar with Juliette Binoche this is the film to see–she is mesmerizing whether just looking at her or watching her act or just being–from the hair on her head to her toes she embodies her line “I can deal with dying but not with abandonment!”  If you are familiar with her you won’t miss this film!

2) “The Andy Warhol Diaries”–Netflix–miniseries-6 episodes–6 hours & 37 minutes–If you don’t know anything about Warhol you may be shocked and if you do you really won’t learn anything new about him–was he gay? Listening to the naysayers and those who thought he was and the quotes from his diary nothing is ever said as if he would come back from the dead and haunt them–The series is interesting but can easily be fast forward over half of it–certainly not for prudes!

3) “Dior & I”–Amazon Prime–French documentary–1 hour & 30 minutes–the debut of Raf Simons as the face of the House of Dior is what this is about but we never really get to know much about his assistant/partner Pieter Mulier, him or Dior–it is the behind the scenes of what goes into making a Dior couture collection premiere–how Simons works, not speaking French, and the women who actually do the work is interesting but the models faces scared me!

4) “Lucy”–movie–1 hour & 34 Minutes  5) “Lucy And Desi”–documentary–1 hour & 48 minutes–both on Amazon Prime as is previously reviewed “Being The Riccardos”–in all 3 films you will know more about Lucy (nee Ball) & Desi Arnez than you ever wanted to but like me you will laugh as each film has 3 of Lucy’s funniest clips that I roared at then and still do–just as funny as they were that is how sad their ‘ending’ was–the one thing I learned new was about Lucille Ball being mentored by Buster Keaton–if you can see all 3 starting with the documentary, then “Lucy” and finally “Being The Riccardos ” it would be far from a boring evening!

6) “Tiger Orange”–Amazon Prime–film–1 hour & 15 minutes–I find it very rare that any filmmaker doing 2 or more jobs on a film does the film justice and this is a perfect example– this is a rare story of two small town brothers who are gay, one, ‘in the closet’, staying home to take care of their father who is dying  and the other becoming the stereotype ‘in your face gay’ and returns home when their father dies–Mark Strano stars, produces, co-writes and does the production design while Wade Gasque directs, co-writes the screenplay and co- produces–Strano is a good actor and Gasque a good director but since they had so many voices in the film that should have been 2 hours of striking drama is instead a film that could have/should have been reduced to 75 minutes–the saving grace of the movie is the cinematography of Lila Javan!

Streaming reviews–week of March 1, 2022   Leave a comment


1) “Midnight In Paris”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 36 minutes–if you could go back in time when and where would you go? In this fantasy Woody Allen (Owen Wilson) picks Paris in the time of Cole Porter, Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, Scott F. and Zelda Fitzgerald, to name a few he meets, hangs out with and finds himself–of all the stars involved Marion Cotillard, as Picasso’s current lover is truly a standout, giving the beauties of Paris competition–it is a fantasy world and story and picture–get lost in it!

2) “Adrift”–Netflix–movie–true story—1 hour & 36 minutes–Shailene Woodley & Sam Caflin are a young attractive couple with good chemistry in the love scenes part of the film–water scenes, no pun intended, are crystal clear–unless you know the true story the ending will be a surprise–stay for the credits and what happened after!

3) “In From The Cold”–Netflix–series–season 1–6 hours & 28 minutes–a good thriller but little is made of important parts of the script, especially the ‘morphing’ which did turn me off–the mother and daughter aspect lends some humor and heart to the series–action, heart, humor, physical action, a professional woman who can beat any man makes for a good but not quite believable thriller.

4) “Donkeyhead”–Netflix–Canadian film–1 hour & 45 minutes–does every family member keep secrets from each other? With their father dying 4 siblings come together and, yes, each have their secret–a good cast, humor, touching and filmed in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, (a place I am not familiar with) all make this a winner!

5) “The Hand of God”–Netflix–Italian film–2 hours & 9 minutes–though I was impressed with the scenes of Naples I was not at all impressed with the story of a kid who wants to be a film director and becomes one as an adult–it centers around a rude, crude and large family of which I could only ‘like” one of them–a waste of time except for the Naples scenes which were filmed better in the ‘old’ Italian movies with Sophie Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, etc.

STREAMING REVIEWS NOVEMBER 2021 PART 3   Leave a comment


1) “Suddenly Last Summer” American version–Amazon Prime–1 hour & 54 minutes  2) “Suddenly Last Summer”–British version–Amazon Prime–1 hour & 22 minutes–the American version is 30 minutes longer because Gore Vidal reworked Tennessee Williams poetry , visualized his words and also had to rework many of his thoughts as ‘the movie code’ in 1959 wouldn’t really allow Vidal to say what Williams did, while the British version was Williams and only Williams words, his play, consequently, for me, the better version. Though Clift and Lowe are listed as stars their roles are secondary to Hepburn, Taylor, Richardson and Smith and trying to compare Hepburn versus Smith and Taylor versus Jackson is like trying to compare apples and oranges. Each actress does a fine job though Taylor surprised the most being seen as a ‘star’ and very seldom recognized for the actress she was–WATCH BOTH AS A DOUBLE BILL–WILLIAMS POETRY HITS HOME

3) “Motive”–Netflix–documentary–4 episodes–2 hours–if you can make it through the descriptions, the first 10 minutes, of the killings, you might be interested in this 14 year old who killed his parents and 2 sisters–is he just a ‘bad seed’? Had no feelings? Knew exactly what he was doing? It leaves too many questions at the end such as how long did he spend in prison, how is he living unknown today in our information world? HIS LIFE TODAY IS SHOCKING TO ME AND THIS IS NOT AN EASY DOCUMENTARY TO WATCH AND UNDERSTAND

4) “Pope Francis: A Man of His Word”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 36 minutes–is the Pope a wise man or is a wise man the Pope? He speaks wisely but does he act wisely? He says all the right things using the words and thoughts of God but does he do what he says he will do?He talks about the many problems we all face but has he solved any of them? THE POPE TALKS ABOUT THE CHURCH SHOULD BE A POOR CHURCH BUT WHAT IS HE DOING TO MAKE IT THAT WAY?

5) “The Raincoat Killer”–Netflix–Korean documentary–3 episodes–2 hours & 23 minutes–a serial killer killed over 20 people violently and disposed of them in a violent way–the brutality of the murders have stayed with the  police for over 15 years and the less than stellar way they investigated the killer–IF YOU LIKE VIOLENCE THIS IS A DOCUMENTARY FOR YOU

6) “Shameless”–Netflix–series–11th season–10 episodes–9 hours & 7 minutes–I hate to see this series end as I have loved it since its first episode–though ‘Fiona’ was the backbone of the show along with Frank, the father, she quit after the 9th season but the last season is as good as the first–it is outrageous, funny, touching and the emphasis as and has always been about family–everyone, good or bad, is represented in the Gallagher family and you love them all,  including the unlovable ones–A MUST SEE SERIES WITH UNFORGETTABLE CHARACTERS AND ACTORS

STREAMING REVIEWS OCTOBER 2021 PART 5   Leave a comment

1) “Athlete A”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 43 minutes–about the case brought against a doctor for physically abusing gymnastic athletes including Olympic contenders–hard to listen/watch some of the then girls, now women, talking about what happened–WHEN THEY FINALLY FACE THEIR ABUSER(S) YOU WILL TEAR UP–A MUST SEE

2) “Found”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 38 minutes–3 children were given away by their birth parents (enforced by the country politicians) due to the one child per parents unless you could afford to pay $8,500 for each child–we follow the 3 girls who are adopted by different American parents–as they grow older they get interested in finding their birth parents though they are obviously loved and brought up with many things they wouldn’t have had–THE GIRLS FIND EACH OTHER AND BUILD A DEEP RELATIONSHIP MOVING THE VIEWER TO UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF ADOPTION AND MAKING ONE’S OWN FAMILY

3) “His House”–Netflix–English movie–1 hour & 33 minutes–a refugee couple from South Sudan move to London–voodoo, ghosts, a dead child, people coming out of walls, floors, ceilings and lights going on and off by themselves–A GOOD HALLOWEEN HORROR FILM

4) “Strong Island”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 47 minutes–a Black man is shot and the man who shot him goes free–we hear what happened that night and the dead man from his 2 sisters, parents and best friend–A MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE–REJECTING THE KILLER’S PLEA AS SELF DEFENSE–YOU HAVE TO ANSWER THOSE AND OTHER QUESTIONS

5) “Justin Bieber: our World”–Amazon–documentary–1 hour & 34 minutes–preparing for a virtual performance we follow all the work involved–I know of him but was not familiar with him as an entertainer–you hear one song you have heard them all except for a slow tune and the ONLY difference is that there are only 3 performers on stage otherwise all is the same from the crotch grabbing (men and women),  even in the slow songs, repetitive lyrics, the stage loaded with dancers, musicians, fireworks, etc. His crew, many with him 11 or more years, love him and he loves them–EVERYTHING IS A LOVE FEST AND EVERYTHING IS A BORE EXCEPT–WELL, NO EXCEPTIONS

6) “Operation Hyacinth”–Netflix–Polish film–1 hour & 52 minutes–based on a true story that happened in the mid 1980s–secret police tracking down homosexuals and entering their name into a data base which would eventually have 11,000 names–our hero, a policeman, similar to Al Pacino’s role in “Cruising”, may or may not feel he is gay too, while investigating a possible serial killer of Gays–hyacinth is the Polish equivalent to the Americans pansy when referring to Gays–the possibility of the policeman being gay does add a layer, somewhat of suspense, but aside from genre movies of detectives in the 1940s and later films REGARDING IS HE OR ISN’T HE AND THE MCCARTHY WITCH HUNT MY FEELING WAS BEEN THERE, DONE THAT–NOTHING COMPELLING OR MAKING IT A MUST SEE

1) “The Voyeurs”–Amazon Prime–movie–1 hour & 56 minutes–what I thought would be a take off on “Rear Window” turned out to be something quite different–a young couple, moving into a new apartment, observe a couple across the way having sex and not really caring that others could watch them–I DEFY YOU TO NOT WATCH THE LAST 30 MINUTES AFTER WATCHING THE FIRST 80!

2) “The Starling”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 44 minutes–a husband and wife each deals differently with the death of their young child–A SWEET, TENDER LOVE STORY THAT JUST MISSES BEING MOVING AS IT SHOULD BE

3) “The Defeated”–Netflix–limited series–8 episodes–6 hours & 7 minutes–looks at the world of Berlin at the end of WW2 and the 4 countries wanting to control it–a New York policeman looking for his brother and a woman in charge of a makeshift German police squad whose husband is missing join forces–CONFUSING BUT HOLDS YOUR INTEREST

4) “Rita Moreno: Just a girl who decided to go for it”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 30 minutes–Rita is a dynamo and does say something about living alone that hit with me–she lets you see the woman behind the makeup, even let’s you see her without any makeup and then how she achieves her ‘look’–she is not afraid to talk about her being raped (doesn’t really make clear if it is the same guy who represents her now)–the only minor complaint I have is that she doesn’t acknowledge Chita Rivera’s contribution–COULDN’T HAVE ENJOYED THIS MORE AND SHOWS WHY IT IS

TITLED AS IT IS
5) “Enola Holmes”–Netflix–movie–2 hours & 4 minutes–the niece of Sherlock goes looking for her mother who has disappeared–her two uncles are on hand to help her–but they don’t help the movie–TOO LONG AND TOO CUTE–OH WHERE IS WATSON WHEN YOU NEED HIM?

6) “House of Secrets: The Burari Deaths”–Netflix–limited series–3 episodes–2 hours & 15 minutes–the cult like murders of 10 family members–AFTER THE FIRST EPISODE I CALLED IT QUITS (A RARITY FOR ME!)

STREAMING REVIEWS OCTOBER 2021 PART 2   Leave a comment


1) “Diana The Musical” film of Broadway show to open next month–Netflix–1 hour & 57 minutes–after not hearing ONE thing good about this musical I had to watch it–I may be the only one who enjoyed it!–the music, lyrics, the precision choreography, the cast, the magic of changing costumes on stage as show progresses–who cares if they ‘pick’ a little on Diana, a lot on Charles and even the queen and who really knows who said what to who–it’s fiction loosely based on fact–FORGET IT IS ABOUT HER & ENJOY IT–IT IS NOT A CLASSIC BUT ENTERTAINING AND THEATER MAGIC

2) “Ella Fitzgerald: Just One Of Those Things”–Netflix–a documentary–1 hour & 30 minutes–there is only one Ella Fitzgerald–she could work magic with lyrics whether it is jazz, blues, scat, bop–whether it is a ballad like “But Not For Me” or using her voice as an instrument singing “High High The Moon” she owns the songs–I was surprised to hear about Marilyn Monroe—MARILYN MONROE!!–gets credit for her becoming a success in nightclubs–A MUST SEE BY A MUST HEAR SINGER

3) “Dear White People”–Netflix-series–season 4 and end of series–10 episodes–5 hours & 46 minutes–the first 3 seasons really held my interest but the musical sequences that takes up so many of the episodes in season 4 takes away from what is happening and what may happen to them in the future–WATCH THE FIRST 3 SEASONS AND SKIP ALL THE MUSICAL NUMBERS IN SEASON 4

4) “The Guilty”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 31 minutes–Jake Gyllenhaal is a policeman being ‘punished’ and is assigned to the 911 station–I have always thought Gyllenhaal was/is underrated though his reviews are always get raves whether he is in a film or doing a play or musical on Broadway but he doesn’t seem to be a “STAR”–HE IS EXCELLENT IN THIS WHERE HE IS ALMOST ALONE ON SCREEN MOST OF THE TIME

5) “Birds of Paradise”–Prime Amazon—1 hour & 53 minutes–Kate, poor and on a scholarship, and Martine, wealthy and spoiled who has lost her brother and the scholarship is in his name, are competing for the only spot open for a dancer with the National de Paris opera company–they couldn’t be any more different (except I kept on getting confused who was who!) and for a world of male dancers who are stereotyped as being gay you would never know it from this film–BOTH THE 1977 FILM “THE TURNING POINT” AND EVEN THE 2010 “BLACK SWAN” WOULD BE WORTH SEEING AGAIN INSTEAD OF SEEING THIS ‘DRAMA’

6) “Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami”–Netflix–documentary–limited series–6 episodes–4 hours & 30 minutes–Augusto Falcon and Sal Magluta are larger than life and made billions of dollars running drugs in the USA–they are smart high school dropouts and almost command the story but Marilyn Bonachea, Sal’s girlfriend, steals the documentary–THE GUYS MAKE “SCARFACE” LOOK LIKE AN AMATEUR AND MARILYN HAS TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED!

1) “Closer”–Amazon Prime–movie–1 hour & 44 minutes–somehow or another I missed this Julia Roberts 2004 movie and I was glad I got caught up with it if only for that Roberts smile scene–based on a play it really only has the 4 stars as the players with one minor role–it looks at the love lives of 4 people intertwined with odd ideas of ‘love’–the 4 stars are excellent–movie okay–ANY MOVIE WITH A JULIA ROBERTS RADIATING THAT SMILE IS WORTH SEEING

2) “Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father”–Netflix–season five–2 hours & 3 minutes–Michael, Jack’s father, has been the STAR of the series from its opening segment and he brings the series to a close with his effortless charm–MICHAEL’S REACTIONS TO HIS SON’S EFFORTS WILL HAVE YOU LAUGHING OUT LOUD

3) “Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins”–Amazon Prime–movie–1 hour & 54 minutes–a 2004 film is just a big cliche from beginning to end–DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME

4) “Britney vs Spears”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 33 minutes–I wouldn’t know a Britney Spear’s song if I heard it and she sang it in front of me–haven’t been following this whole conservatorship deal until the last couple of months and while I write and watch this I think anyone who has worked as hard as she has the past 8 years putting shows together has to have it together–WORTH WATCHING TO FIND OUT WHAT THE WHOLE LEGAL FIGHT INVOLVES

5) “Attack of the Hollywood Cliches”–Netflix–documentary–58 minutes–the title says it all except for the fact that Rob Lowe, who narrates the film, really makes a fool of himself–WATCH IT ONLY IF YOU NEED BACKGROUND NOISE WHILE YOU DO SOMETHING ELSE

6) “Worth”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 58 minutes–based on real events of 9/11–Michael Keaton plays Kenneth Feinberg who is the mediator regarding financial settlements for the survivors including Charles Wolf (Stanley Tucci), who lost his wife, and Frank Donato (Chris Tardio), who’s brother, a fireman, raced back into the buildings to help save people and didn’t make it out alive–this is a hard film to watch as families tell specific stories of lost relatives–HOW MUCH MONEY IS A LIFE WORTH ? WATCH END CREDITS TO GET SOME IDEA–A NOT EASY TO WATCH BUT A MUST SEE FILM

1) “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie”–Amazon Prime–movie–1 hour & 56 minutes–I had heard a bit about it being sort of an off-Broadway musical that was opening in London but the synopsis, “Teenage boys wants to become a professional drag queen”, turned me off but I decided to watch it for a few minutes–1 hour & 56 minutes flew by and I had watched the whole movie–Max Harwood is excellent as the teenager and Richard E. Grant is dynamite as his ‘drag teacher’, his professional Godmother–some very good production numbers–BE SURE TO WATCH THE END CREDITS AND ‘MEET’ THE REAL MOTHER AND SON THIS IS BASED ON–A MUST SEE MOVIE!

2) “Lucifer”–Netflix–series–season 6–10 episodes–8 hours & 44 minutes–as good as the first season–first rate all the way-a lot of fun while the serious aspects of the devil and G-d are handled straight and with feeling–you get to know all the characters and believe in Adam and Eve along with the various angels and children of G-d–THIS HAS BEEN A FIRST RATE SERIES AND ENDS ON A HIGH NOTE AND TOM ELLIS AS LUCIFER MORNINGSTAR, THE DEVIL, LEADS AN OUTSTANDING CAST

3) “The River Runner”–Netflix–documentary–filmed in Tibet–1 hour & 25 minutes–paddling is not an easy sport and though we are following 4 men wanting to be the first to paddle across 4 great rivers the film is interested particularly in Scott Lindgren’s quest and it becomes obvious why–SHOWS WHAT MAKES A CHAMP A CHAMP–EXCELLENT

4) “The Social Dilemma”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 34 minutes–though most of us are aware of how the Internet knows so much about us not many know how they are using that information and how media companies are starting, if not already, are ruling the world–THIS DOCUMENTARY MAY MAKE A LOT OF PEOPLE USE THE INTERNET LESS–I SUGGEST SEEING THIS WITH “CLICK BAIT” (SEE PART 4 REVIEW)–INTERESTING AND , POSSIBLY, FRIGHTENING DOUBLE BILL

5) “Open Your Eyes”–Netflix–Polish sci-fi series–season 1–6 episodes–4 hours & 41 minutes–absolutely crazy!–didn’t understand it or what was happening BUT I LOVED IT! I HAD NO IDEA WHO THE LEAD IS AND/OR WHERE SHE WAS NOR DOES SHE AND I WATCHED IT ALL IN ONE SEATING

6) “Sex Education”–Netflix–season 3–8 episodes–7 hours & 29 minutes–seems like a tired story about teenagers trying to find themselves–having or not having sex–trust issues–problems with adults–but it all feels fresh as WE GET TO KNOW ALL SIDES OF THE INDIVIDUAL TEENAGERS AND THOUGH SOME HAVE RUN OF THE MILL PROBLEMS THEY HANDLE THEM DIFFERENTLY AND IN INTERESTING WAYS

A RARITY–ALL 6 STREAMING SHOWS ARE WINNERS AND ALL FOR DIFFERENT REASONS!
