Sam brings it back to some local shows this week, and after binging Educators on TVNZ last night, he's impressed. These 15 minute episodes are full of relatable content and real laughs-out-loud, plus a load of familar faces. Sam reckons this is definitely worth your time.

Sam watched a whole season of Barry in one night and it's safe to say he highly recommends it. This series follows Bill Hader, who plays a hit man who moves to LA and decides it's time for a career change (obviously not always easy in the world of assassination). Sam reckons Barry has flown under the radar and is definitely worth a watch.

With voting on his mind, Sam dived into Ryan Murphy's latest $300m Netflix deal, The Politician. So, does big money make good TV? Sam endured the entire first season to find out, and in his opinion, no it does not. Although the show tries to tackle some of the serious issues we're facing in society, Sam wonders if it might have missed the mark... This might be one to check out for yourself.

Sam joins Pearl in studio to talk about the latest entertainment he's been enjoying. Women Who Kill, starring Lucy Liu, has caught his attention. Is it worth a Sam Sinnott binge or just something to pass the time?

Sam's talking Euphoria this week. An HBO show that has been hyped by and chatted about a lot, but does it live up to the hype? A series that comes with a warning of it's content, Sam reckons it takes a raw and honest look at some of the harsh realities of teenagehood. Something to watch, but maybe take a break between episodes.

BBC's Years & Years (2019) is Sam's pick for the week, and both Tess and 95bFM's News Director, Lillian, are big fans. Featuring Emma Thompson and Russell Tovey, this series will make you laugh, cry, and possibly have an existential crisis. An intensely good time.
