Sam's here to review a show that's sure to make you feel good, Harley Quinn (2019). Similar to the likes of Rick and Morty, this is a show Sam has kept secret for some time, but definitely reckons it's worth a watch. A nice one for a dusty day.
Sam joins us for a chilling review of The Outsider (2020), an adaptation of the Stephen King novel. And, of course, we expect nothing less than a thrilling, supernatural mystery. But is it worth waiting a week for each episode? Sam reckons.
And Sam's back in studio, after a few days under the weather, he has caught up with Ru Paul's latest Netflix show, AJ and The Queen (2020). If you're a RuPaul's Drag Race fan, this is the show for you; otherwise, it gets a ~shrug~ from Sam. Take from that what you will.
Sam's got his top five shows for us this week, what a glorious day. Starting at number five, is Years & Years (2019), followed by Barry (2018 - 2019), then we've got Euphoria (2019), and of course, Fleabag (2016 - 2019), and the best show of the year (in Sam's opinion) was Watchmen (2019). Plenty for you to watch over the summer break.
It's been a while since Sam's watched something he's been thoroughly unimpressed by, and today's the day. Reviewing High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (2019), Sam doesn't reckon it quite lives up to the original movie, in his opinion. Perhaps Disney Plus hasn't caught him quite yet...
Is The Mandalorian (2019) as good as it's hyped up to be? Sam's here with a review of the long-awaited Star Wars TV series featuring the adorable Baby Yoda. Stay tuned to find out if it's worth subscribing to another streaming service to catch this one.
Takunda and Aniket join Rachel and Sam in the studio to chat about being part of the series Rediscovering Aotearoa. Discussing decolonisation, Takunda's spoken word poetry in the Reo episode, and Aniket's medical education in the Hauora episode, as well as how watching this series impacted them. A moving and important watch.
Sam's reviewing The Morning Show (2019) on the Breakfast Show today. Maybe not the best show of the year but he still managed to binge five episodes in one night and got pretty excited about it. With stars like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell, it's worth a short binge.
We're talking Watchmen (2019) with Sam this week. Another superhero series that we didn't know we needed, the one that Sam has dubbed 'Best of the Year', complete with punchy superhero's, heavy undertones and a giant squid monster. What more can we say?
Producer Kayne and artist Jaimie, from the Takatāpui episode of the Rediscovering Aotearoa series, pop into the studio to chat with Sam and Rachel about making the episode and the importance of sharing their voices. Jaimie and Kayne talk about decolonisation, identity and the meaning of Takatāpui. This is definitely a series that's important to watch.
