 Middleditch & Schwartz

 

"“Middleditch & Schwartz” will probably make you laugh a lot. When they’re giggling at themselves or unable to think of any names that don’t rhyme or pull out an unexpected speaking voice, it’s hard not to follow suit. These two also happen to be wizards at weaving everything together, bringing back a key detail right after the point you forgot about it. Most comedy specials arrive fully formed. “Middleditch & Schwartz” gives you the joy of working things out together."

 

Comedy duo Thomas Middleditch and Ben Schwartz improvise performances based on audience suggestions, from NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in New York City.

Extraction

 

"Powered by the charisma and physicality of its star, this often gruelling action flick does more than enough to suggest that Hemsworth has found his genre, once he hangs up a certain hammer."

 

A black-market mercenary who has nothing to lose is hired to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord. But in the murky underworld of weapons dealers and drug traffickers, an already deadly mission approaches the impossible.

Upload

 

""Upload" may not be the most original show of the season, but its premise is entertaining enough. It wisely doesn't go beyond the half hour mark in most of its episodes. The performances are also witty, full of self-mocking humor."

 

Upload is set in a future where "humans are able to 'upload' themselves into their preferred choice of afterlife. When Nathan meets his early death, he is greeted by Nora in his version of heaven. The series follows the two as Nathan grows accustomed to life away from his loved ones, and the alive Nora struggles to stay afloat working her job alongside Nathan in the afterlife.
