From final episodes of Bojack Horseman and Schitt’s Creek, to new shows like The Queen’s Gambit and Bridgerton, we break down the shows that got us through the hell year known as 2020. We also get into how streaming and the Emmys might evolve over the next decade. Join us!

The Hollywood Read ep. 83

This week we’re talking true crime, and the shift over the last few years of true crime from undercover interest to mainstream obsession. We discuss how Netflix has contributed to the mainstreaming of true crime, the ethics of commodifying murder and mayhem as entertainment, and the programs and documentaries that have defined the recent trend in true crime. Then we share our top three true crime stories and those stories we can’t stand to think about.

The Hollywood Read ep. 60

The self-quarantine continues and this week we’re talking Tiger King, the latest Netflix true crime phenomenon. We also discuss Netflix’s true crime domination and the ongoing and everlasting interest in true crime that we as a society have. The interest is not new but the lack of shame in that interest is, so join us as we try to understand the human impulse to consume true crime and how that intersects with increasingly exploitative narratives.
