My Top 5 Weekly Pop Culture Recommendations (3/17-3/23): 1. Russian Doll (TV Show, 2019)
• Natasha Lyonne is stunning in this twisty, surreal, darkly comic delight of a series that will leave you pondering the meaning of life. I would say more about the plot, but it's best to go in blind. This is easily the best thing I've watched this year so far, and it's only eight short episodes!
2. Captain Marvel (Film, 2019)
• A satisfying take on one of the best superheroes of all time. While I felt the film had a few pacing issues, Brie Larson is absolutely captivating to watch. Bonus: A killer 90's soundtrack and the introduction of the fabulous Goose the Cat (who steals every scene he's in). 3. Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror (Documentary, 2019)
• A fantastic documentary about black representation in horror/thriller films throughout history. This is essential viewing-- even for those who aren't big fans of horror films. It includes interviews with influential individuals like Jordan Peele ("Get Out"), Tony Todd ("Candyman"), Rachel True ("The Craft"), and many others.
4. PEN15 (TV Show, 2019)
• An awkward but relatable new comedy series about two teenage girls trying to survive junior high in the year 2000. How relatable is the series? Well, there's an entire episode devoted to AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). The show often leans into its unique brand of 'cringe-comedy', but it also manages to tackle major issues like racism, identity, sexuality, and others.
5. RETRO PICK: Jekyll & Hyde The Musical (Complete Work Album, 1994)
• With the recent news that a film adaptation of Jekyll & Hyde is in the works, now seems like a good time to revisit the show's definitive cast recording. I'm talking about the 'Complete Work' album released a few years prior to the OBC featuring the phenominal Anthony Warlow in the show's title role(s). Notably, Jekyll & Hyde was originally conceived as more of a sung-through Gothic Pop-Opera, and for my money, nearly everything about that version of that show is superior to the one that ended up on Broadway.
