Analysis: Hulu’s ‘The Patient’ Is the Cure for Your Streaming Problems

I’m not quite ready to give up my sandals just yet, but I will love to spend more time indoors – after all, there is so much to look at and listen to.

So count me in for the new Hulu series “The Patient” in which Carell stars as a therapist whose patient (played by Domhnall Gleeson) takes him hostage, confesses to being a serial killer and demands a cure for his murderous behavior.

Sounds easy enough, right?

It’s now streaming on Hulu.

I love that after all these years there is still more of the “Star Trek” universe to discover.

In this animated series, the support crew of the spaceship USS Cerritos tells their story. In Season 3, the ship is seized and the crew seeks justice for their captain, as well as all sorts of other interplanetary hijackings.

Sci-fi, comedy and animation make for an entertaining trio.

The first two episodes of the new season will be streamed on Paramount+.

‘The Boleyns: a scandalous family’

Long time Tudorphile here, so this new PBS series is exactly what I want.

A three-part historical documentary, “The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family,” charts the meteoric rise — and equally seismic demise — of the Boleyn family in Tudor, England.

Of course, Anne Boleyn was one of Henry VIII’s wives – the second wife, but the first to literally lose her head. But she was not the only Boleyn to charm the king; PBS describes the series as “a thrilling tale of love, sex, betrayal and obsession, set in a Tudor court full of gossip, backstabbing rivalry and intrigue.”

Yes please!

The first episode is available to stream on, and the PBS Video app.

Two things to listen to

The sick, the dying… and the dead! by Megadeth

James LoMenzo, Dave Mustaine and Kiko Loureiro of Megadeth perform onstage at a concert in Austin, Texas on August 20, 2021.

Thrash metal heavyweights Megadeth has a way with album titles and their latest is no exception.

“The sick, the dying…and the dead!” is their last record and no, it’s not about the pandemic.

“This one was inspired by another virus, the plague,” the band’s frontman Dave Mustaine told Louder, explaining that the record grew out of, among other timely inspirations, “the actual facts… how it was a disease that was transmissible through the rats and the fleas, and how that all happened.”

If anyone can do that, it’s Megadeth.

The album is now out.

‘Yungblud’ by Yungblud

Yungblud will perform at Terminal 5 in New York City on February 11.
Singer/songwriter Yungblud’s third album is untitled because, as he wrote on Instagram in May, “Everything so far has been a complete explosion of uncensored expression, where I just told the truth and sang about what I was feeling in that exact moment. ” (In 2018, the artist’s first EP was also self-titled.)

“The difference here is that I’ve thought and felt this record so deeply,” he wrote. “I went to a part of myself that I didn’t know was there.”

The album is also out now.

One thing to talk about

My mom is a big fan of TLC’s reality series “Sister Wives,” so that’s why I’ve been kept up to date with star Kody Brown and his family. (TLC is also owned by CNN’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.)

His former wife Christine Brown recently spoke to People about ending their relationship — and getting out of plural marriage.

“I get to live life for me,” said the 50-year-old. “My whole world has changed and every cell in my body is happier.”

One of the most interesting things to me about “Sister Wives” was the concept of multiple women sharing the same husband and merging their families. Well, it turns out that Brown, who shares six children with her now ex, lost interest in that kind of life.

“I started to think this might not work for me,” she said. “And then I stopped believing in polygamy. I realized I didn’t really want to live it anymore. I didn’t like sharing a man or feeling like I wasn’t important.”

The importance of finding what makes you happy cannot be overemphasized. Good luck to her.

Something to sip from

Solange Knowles attends the inaugural Lena Horne Prize Gala at City Hall on February 28, 2020 in New York City.

I love this time for Solange Knowles.

The multi-talented, multi-hyphenated creative is getting her art out there more than ever.

Not only is she the first black woman to compose a score for the New York City Ballet, but she has also recently released “In Past Pupils and Smiles,” a 188-page monograph based on a piece she debuted at the Venice Biennale. in 2019.
According to Vogue, the book features “behind-the-scenes and live-performance photography and conversations with and writings by collaborators such as co-curator Aaron Cezar, musician Greg Bryant, costume designer Kyle Luu, and hairstylist Virginie ‘Gin’ Moreira, among others.”

“Documentation with still photography has always been very important,” she told the publication. “In order for this work to live on, archive and share throughout history, I actually had us rerun this performance without an audience to capture how the energy force of the performance shifted.”

Being Beyoncé’s younger sister can’t be easy, so I’m excited to see Knowles flesh out her own legacy in the arts.
