Fuller House

Fans of Fuller House will no doubt be overjoyed to hear that ‘The door is still open’ as season four of the hit sitcom lands on Netflix this week. Continuing to feature many of the original characters (and their original actors) from the original series ‘Full House’, ‘Fuller House’ is a fun-packed, feel-good, give everyone a hug, tilt your head to the side and say awww, kinda series. Whether you are new to the Fuller/Tanner household or have followed the gang right from the start, the series is full of canned laughter and cheesy lines reminding us of what television used to be like. What’s not to love? 😉

The Innocent Man

Author John Grisham is famous for his novels however there is one book he wrote that was non-fiction. ‘The Innocent Man’ is by Grisham’s own account a tale that had he have written as fiction, “…folks probably wouldn’t believe it.” The documentary features reconstructions, original material and personal witness testimony to investigate the wrongful incrimination of two men for a murder in 1982 in Ada, Oklahoma. A man was later prosecuted exonerating the two accused, one of whom was close to the death penalty. As two other men currently serve their time for another gruesome murder in 1984 the documentary looks at the failings/potential corruption of the authorities at the time and the potential innocence of these men labelled murderers. Viewers will be pleased to know; ‘The Innocent Man’ documentary consists of just six episodes, relatively short in comparison to the likes of ‘Making a Murderer.’

The Protector

Istanbul’s future and in fact its destiny is at stake from the one they call ‘The Immortal’. Only one man can save the city, only one man is ‘The Protector’ unfortunately he doesn’t know it yet.  As Hakan (Çağatay Ulusoy) realises his destiny and begins training with his ‘loyal ones’ his power begins to dawn on him and with great power comes great responsibility…wait, hang on, wrong superhero. But you get the gist right? 😉

Ellen De Generes: Relatable

Everybody loves Ellen, right? Ellen returns to her roots to perform her stand up show despite her friend’s doubts she may no longer be ‘Relatable.’ Touching on the homophobia she experienced in her career, Ellen’s stand up show is intimate, emotional and of course hilarious not to mention the dance moves!
