Quad-Cities Band Einstein's Sister Has Song Featured On Hulu's 'Pam And Tommy'

Local band Einstein’s Sister will have one of their songs, “Together We’re Alone,” used as part of the soundtrack to Hulu’s new series on the infamous Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson relationship! Guitarist/singer/songwriter Kerry Tucker announced on the Einstein’s Sister Facebook page this weekend, “We just found out that an upcoming episode of the Hulu series “Pam & Tommy” will be using “Together We’re Alone” from our ‘Learning Curves’ album.

Mommy Brain (Review: False Positive)

False Positive is streaming on Hulu In 2016, the World Health Organization estimated that around 830 women die on a daily basis due to complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. If you read that number and were floored by the lethal math on display, it’s probably because you’re a man. The fact of the matter is, the process of pregnancy has always been tied up with risk. Three hundred years ago, along with the distressingly normal dangers associated with birth, a pregnant woman had to contend with barbaric practices that barely met the definition of medical, as well as an insanely misogynistic... Read More

Sex Positive (Review: Plan B)

“Plan B” is streaming on Hulu A while back, Toni Morrison said, “All good art is political.” I think that’s about right, yet I’d take it a step further and say that all art is political — full stop. Does that mean that every movie you see and every book you read has an overt political agenda? No. What I would say is that to quote an interesting article from the American Psychological Association, “Politics is personal.”* “But why do movies have to be political? Why do they have to be so woke” I see people whining. These folks conveniently forget that movies have always... Read More

Shoot, Stab, Repeat (Review: Boss Level)

Boss Level is streaming on Hulu In the world of Hollywood, it can take time for a genre to emerge. That’s mostly due to the overwhelming cowardice lurking throughout the entertainment industry. If you have a novel idea for a movie, say, an action flick where the hero is scared and tired, or a series of films that create an interconnected cinematic universe, the vast number of executives will pass on it before you can finish your first sentence. It took a minute for time loop movies to catch on. Groundhog Day wasn’t the first. As best as I can figure, the first time loop movie was The Girl... Read More

Down The Road (Review: Nomadland)

Nomadland is streaming on Hulu The nature of the world is to change. It’s always been so, despite our best efforts to push back against it. Some of us, one percent or so, have the financial means to handle anything. If the economy tanks or they have a health crisis, their limitless coffers allow them to bob gently on the surface of the water. Meanwhile, people like me, and possibly you, live a different kind of existence. Right now, my family is comfortable-ish. We can pay our bills, occasionally order takeout, sometimes feed the needs of our charmingly avaricious son, and even put a little... Read More

Love, Die, Repeat

Sometimes, the best-case scenario is to be wrong. We all have our blind spots, right? I was wrong about Andy Samberg. Wrong as hell. For a while there, I had him pegged as a second-tier Saturday Night Live alum. I figured his comic persona was just like Jimmy Fallon, where he was all about being cute and non-threatening. He would probably get a talk show or a sitcom, and that would be that. Turns out Samberg did get a sitcom, the very funny and very sharp Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He’s also part of the comedy troupe The Lonely Island, and he starred in the criminally unappreciated Popstar: Never Stop... Read More

Primer on TV Entertainment and Streaming

This week has brought an unprecedented number of cancellations for sporting events, concerts, conferences and a growing list of other forms of entertainment and gatherings. Employees are being sent home to work remotely, schools are being closed to students, more are staying home to watch kids and others are self-quarantining to avoid or recover from Coronavirus (COVID-19). With so many forced to stay home for these reasons, or just to avoid contagion, it seemed time to start a new column on Home Entertainment Trends. Most people are familiar with standard TV programming broadcast over the airwaves... Read More
