6 Thoughts on Quibi’s Roku’s The Fugitive

Quibi raised nearly $2 billion from investors. But it bombed so hard that Roku was able to buy their tape library for $100 million. Now, there can be no way that tape library is actually worth $100 million for Roku. How many people have a Roku television/setup and actually are like, “Let me watch some free programming on Roku!”?

With that said, Roku is now your destination for watching Kiefer Sutherland embracing his star persona once again and that is something I personally cannot pass up. Thus, you all get my big 6 takeaways from The Fugitive. Continue reading 6 Thoughts on Quibi’s Roku’s The Fugitive

Ranking the Superstore Seasons

Superstore has in a lot of ways flown under the radar over the course of its six seasons. Justin Spitzer basically joined The Office right before it fell off the cliff, and he seemingly learned a lot of good lessons from how to run a workplace show and not make many of the same mistakes (also copying paying homage to many of their stories). The main advantage the show seemed to have going for it though was that it never became such a huge hit that people based their “personalities” on liking the show. Imagine how much less uncool it would be to like The Office if very few people watched it. That’s Superstore. Continue reading Ranking the Superstore Seasons

Top 10 Best Curb Your Enthusiasm Supporting Characters

At The Reel World, we believe instead of paying us money to listen to and read our mundane thoughts on popular culture, you should give back what you can to people who need it.
