It’s a hell of a day for throwbacks, from an actress who was all the rage in the 1970s and ’80s to an iconic wrestler of the ’90s to a popular children’s bear for all decades. Happy monday to you! Well, we’ll have to wait on the wrestler as it’s been pushed back… but the first two…
Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields [Hulu]
Brooke Shields has had a career full of ups and downs. It’s all been well documented, but now it’s examined even further in a feature length documentary. Brooke has been famous almost her whole life so there is a lot of material to work with. This doc is eye opening.
The Adventures of Paddington [Nick Jr.]
As a childless adult, I know this isn’t for me. But it’s Paddington and the animation is closer to Lego-level than Blocko-level, so maybe this is the one Nick Jr. show that is also for adults. Either way, it looks pretty cool, so if you have kids and want to intro them to the British bear, or if you want to relive your own childhood, why not watch this?
BUT, WAIT, THERE’S MORE:
- Martha Cooks would seem to be part of a Martha does just about everything on The Roku Channel–and in this case, it’s what she’s best known for. No word if the second season will feature a drop in by her cannabis-loving bestie!
- We knew the 1000 dollar entry payment for every Alaska resident was too good to be true. USA invites a bunch of survivalists to The Last Frontier for the crazy contest that is Race to Survive: Alaska.
- PBS looks at the U.S. southern border through eyes that are both American and Mexican and very, very culinary. La Frontera with Pati Jinich features the renown chef digging deep into the cuisines of her two home countries, focusing on how they are prepared (and mixed and matched) where the two countries meet.
- Since the Lifetime-Hallmark Vortex is offering us nothing, we’ll end in the land of British detectives where Acorn has a new season of the Brokenwood Mysteries… not to be confused with so so many shows with similar names. And we want to watch all of them if time permits!
