This fortnight, Nick and Alastair attach themselves to Netflix once again to cover improv crime-sitcom Murderville and Oscar-contending cowboy movie The Power of the Dog.
But first, Alastair’s continuing his awards season diet with strong contender Parallel Mothers, while Nick’s finally watching universally beloved optcom Ted Lasso.
After which, they finally sign into Netflix to consume all six episodes of Murderville (12:02) and find out whether the one thing past popular TV cop sitcoms needed was a main character improvising the whole time.
Lastly, as part of their annual quest for Oscar relevance, Nick and Alastair watch Jane Campion’s acclaimed western The Power of the Dog (25:04) and puzzle over exactly where it fits in the pantheon of past Cumberbatch roles, plus (of course) how it connects to Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
PS – if you want to get involved with Nick’s upcoming comic about Necromancers, the Kickstarter notification page thing is up now.
