"YOU SHOULD NEVER TELL A PSYCHOPATH THEY'RE A PSYCHOPATH. IT UPSETS THEM."
And honestly wouldn't you like to have the balls to say this to someone? Villanelle, one half of the unlikely romantic pairing at the heart of this black thriller/comedy, has the balls - and the fantastic fashion - to pull it off! Claire's stomach is sometimes a bit weak for Villanelle's blithe assassinations, but you end up rooting for the bad guy (or girl, in this case). Jodie Comer , an English actress, is as talented as our own Tatiana Maslany (see Orphan Black Vibe) in assuming accents and identities. Suspenseful and hilarious - highly recommend.
"JUST REMEMBER, MY LOVES - DEATH IS NOTHING AT ALL. I'VE ONLY SLIPPED INTO THE NEXT ROOM. I PROMISE WE WILL LAUGH AT THIS DIFFICULT PARTING WHEN WE MEET AGAIN."
Spoiler alert!! This goodbye message comes several seasons into Orphan Black, from the mother of the "chickens", or clones, upon which this sci-fi series is based, and you can probably guess what happens to her. Her "daughter", played by Tatiana Maslany, the star of the show, lights up every scene that she's in, whether she plays a Russian psychopath or a suburban, wine-swilling mini-van mom. Many plot twists and turns, and the dark humour of which we're so fond of in our tv series, keep you totally engaged but honestly, we stan Tatiana and the show is worth watching for her alone. Binge- worthy and conveniently on Netflix.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
Has anyone ever heard of "Air BnB (virtual) Experiences"? Well, this Zoom experience was Momy's Mother's Day present this year! This duo offers live tango music (singing and guitar only; sadly, no dancing) virtually on Zoom get-togethers direct from their living room in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In non-pandemic life, they actually tour, so we're going to be sure to look out for them when they pass through our neck of the woods. They're so cute and very friendly (there was even audience interaction and participation)! The burning question on our minds, of course, was: are these two an actual.. you know.... couple?? She's 64, he's 49, We say... go, Sister! Must be that Latin blood!
"A CROSS BETWEEN RICHARD SIMMONS AND BRITNEY SPEARS"
...Is how "The Fitness Marshall" (aka Caleb Marshall) describes himself. Which we think is pretty darn accurate! If you're down and pandemic-out, left flabby and unmotivated by the thousandth-and-one Youtube workout video by some chick doing lunges in her living room, this "gay best friend in the club" will get you up and feelin' groovy. He body-rolls and shimmies to all the latest tunes, and check out a few special videos that feature our gal Whitney (of "My Big Fat Fabulous Life" fame). This is guaranteed to get you off your a**!!
