Indecision Island...what to do?
If you are a fan of Resident Alien, Rick and Morty, or both then you need to check out Solar Opposites on Hulu. Season 1 is waiting for your eyeballs with season 2 coming out this March 26th.
A team of four aliens escape their exploding home world only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love humans and all their TV, junk food and fun stuff. Their mission: protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.
If you like slick-looking thrillers, then head over to Amazon Prime and watch Grand Piano. It stars Elijah Wood and John Cusack with a surprising appearance by Alex Winter. Is it the best thing ever? Well, no. I had the movie figured out in about 5 minutes but the back and forth between the 2 main actors was well done, and the director has a sharp eye for visuals. From the reviews people left, it's one you will either love or hate.
Afterward, you can slide over to Cooties, also on Prime, and watch Woods as a teacher who must battle infected children. This is a fun take on the zombie theme.
I've been enjoying Ioan Gruffudd in Harrow over on Hulu and I wanted to point out a great 1 season show that was on ABC a few years ago, Forever. Using the CW app or going to the CW website, you can find it on the CWseed.
Doctor Henry Morgan, New York City’s star medical examiner, has a secret. He doesn't just study the dead to solve criminal cases, he does it to solve the mystery that has eluded him for 200 years—the answer to his own inexplicable immortality. This long life has given Henry remarkable observation skills which impresses his new partner, Detective Jo Martinez. Each week, a new case and their budding friendship will reveal layers of Henry’s long and colorful past. Only his best friend and confidant, Abe knows Henry’s secret.
Best part is they must have decided to pull the plug early enough or only have 1 season because you get a complete story here. If you liked Bones, Law and Order, or any of these types of shows I recommend this one.
While you are on the CW you can also check out the newest animated movie they have on Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, in Deathstroke: Knights and Dragons. They have the complete movie in 2 episodes on CW the seed. You can also watch it on HBOmax.
If you like Richard Laymon type horror, check out The Shadow Within:

Jill, a city girl at heart, was surprised when the car came to a stop. Jack wasn't kidding when he said they were going to the boonies. A family vacation, her with Jack and his teenage kids, was not her idea of fun but Jill was ready to take the next step. She wondered if this trip was Jack’s way to say he was ready as well.
As the man stalks through the countryside, unleashing panic and dread, will Jill be able to escape with Jack and his children? Or will the man soak the ground in blood and release…THE SHADOW WITHIN
If you like monsters mindlessly killing, check out The Pope Lick Massacre:
There are two types of people in Jefferson County: those who know the legend of the Pope Lick Monster and those who believe it. Before the night is over, Sam will have no choice but to join the believers.
Since their mother’s death, Sam’s sole focus has been taking care of her younger brother, Kenny. Now Kenny’s Scout troop is missing, having never returned from the woods around Pope Lick. Sam gathers a group of friends to search for the boys and their Scoutmaster. With each step, they get closer to discovering the scouts aren’t the only ones in the woods this night.
“The Pope Lick Massacre is a bold, brutal horror story that’ll remain in your mind long after you read it. This book is not for the faint of heart.” –Independent Book Review
