Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

Brooklyn 99, Season Six:
The sixth season feels a little tired, but offers a continued stream of occasional belly laughs. On Hulu.

Final Grade: B-

What We Do In the Shadows, Season One:
This mockumentary about vampires (based on the the movie of the same name) is a lot of fun and starts out quite promisingly. It doesn't totally maintain the same energy throughout (and there's not much in the way of character development) but it's a harmless, fun show to watch at the end of the day. On Hulu.

Final Grade: B

Hands by Wallis Bird:
This album has a very unique sound to it, with tons of different styles mashed together in unexpected ways. I wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but I like it a lot now. What's Wrong With Changing? is a good representative track.

Final Grade: B+

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (R):
This parody / mockumentary from the Lonely Island guys is much better than I expected (and my expectations were quite low). It drags a little right near the end, but tells a cohesive story while also having some very funny music. Finest Girl (The Bin Laden Song) (explicit lyrics) is one of the high points although the finale, "Incredible Thoughts" has some great surprise guest appearances.

Final Grade: B
