The World Of Television These Days

The Nightcap

Nightcap for 03/02/2019

APERITIF:

3.5 billion years ago, a mega-asteroid that was likely 30 miles across slammed into Earth in Australia. The impact caused tsunamis and craters bigger than many US states.


Cooking with Cannabis

Finding something to watch on Netflix is comparable to finding something to eat at Cheesecake Factory – you know there is plenty of good stuff in the catalog, but it takes a while to sift through all the B.S.

Part of the problem is that Netflix has so many random and obscure categories, so it’s difficult even narrowing down your options THAT way. Hell, Netflix also has anime and cult horror subcategories if you know how to look for them.

Where Netflix seems to fall short is in the cooking category, and that’s terrible news for foodies and people who love the Food Channel.

If cooking shows are your jam (pun intended), you’ll be happy to know Netflix recently aired a cooking show called “Cooking On High” and if that sounds like a show about weed…you are not wrong, sir.

Quite literally, it’s a cooking competition show about making weed-infused dishes. (Or as Sarah Palin likes to call it, “Satan’s Kale.”)

It’s not clear yet if the judges are basing their decision on how good the food taste or how stoned it gets them, but what IS clear is that it looks awesome.

Trailers and ‘Toons

With so many fantastic tv shows out there, it’s difficult narrowing down which ones you are going to invest your time with. After all, there are so many hours in a day. If you watched every series that some coworker or friend insist you see, you wouldn’t have time to do anything else.

Which might be great if you were getting paid to eat Dorito crumbs off your sweatpants at 3 am from the comfort of your couch. But you’re not. So let’s leave that pipe dream alone.

Some great shows get the recognition they deserve because they really are THAT GOOD. Then, there are some truly hysterical, well-written shows that for whatever reason never made the popular circuit. 2001’s Canadian-based show “Trailer Park Boys” is one of them.

It was an obscure comedy series that not many people knew about but those who did absolutely loved.

If you were one of the people that were lucky enough to catch the series, then you’ll be thrilled to learn that Netflix is coming out with a cartoon version of Trailer Park Boys.

No, this is not a drill. Your prayers are about to come to fruition.

If you are one of the people who HAVEN’T seen the show, this is your opportunity not to be such a loser.
