Time Enna Boss (TV Show)

I am half-way through the first season of a comedy show “Time enna Boss“(டைம் என்ன பாஸ்) that released in Amazon Prime Video and I am thoroughly enjoying it. It was unlike anything we see in the Tamil satellite channels. It stars Bharath Srinivasan, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Robo Shankar, Karunakaran, Sanjana Sarathy & Alexander Babu. The 10 episodes season follows a familiar theme of five strangers (who become friends) living under one-roof. Interestingly, here the writers: Mahakerthi, Naru Narayanan and Super Subu have given a twist of casting the four of…

Indian Matchmaking (TV Series)

Indian Matchmaking

Indian Matchmaking (2020): This was a ridiculous reality show about a professional matchmaker being engaged to find life partners for a handful of singles spread between India & the USA. Still, I watched the full season because it was well made with professional choreography, visuals & screenplay by Netflix. A couple of the singles, came out to be self-centered and overly demanding on their specification for a life partner, felt like they are trying to order a product. I was reminded of the classic Tamil Comedy film Manal Kayiru, unfortunately…

Upload (TV Series)

Upload (TV Series)

Upload (TV Series) is the new sci-fi available on Amazon. The story revolves around Nathan (Robbie Amell) who dies in a car accident and gets his consciousness uploaded to a virtual resort where he can live for eternity and connect with the external world. There was little original in the show, feels like an extended version of the episode of “San Junipero” from the famous Black Mirror, and, that makes the show less engaging. There were many logic gaps which were not covered at all: Why people living in the…

Space Force (TV series)

Space Force (TV series) is a brand new comedy TV show, a Netflix original. It is made by the star of The Office (USA) Steven Carell and Greg Daniels, the creator of The Office, SNL, The Simpsons, and many other popular shows. The story is about the newly created (sixth) branch of United States Armed Forces, named US Space Force, the unit is in a chaotic race to attain space supremacy over their adversaries. I found the show to be average, nothing noteworthy or engaging. The show highlights how incompetent…

Halt and Catch Fire (TV series)

Halt and Catch Fire (TV series)

Halt and Catch Fire is a technology historic fiction that may not work for everyone. I liked it as it draws inspiration from real events, inventions and personalities in the spotlight in the 1980s and 1990s. Once you start watching it, AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire (2014-2017) is one of those TV shows like Mad Men, whose characters live in your memory forever. Like HBO’s Silicon Valley (2014-2019) this one too was about the technology and the startup world, but on a whole different plane and timeline. While Silicon Valley…
