News & Notes

Get Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives Episodes on Amazon VideoOn cable tonight, Cartoon Network has a Teen Titans Go!: A Doom Patrol Thanksgiving special, ePix has the TV movie premiere of Blumhouse Film Series: A House on the Bayou, Hallmark Channel has the TV movie premiere of Nantucket Noel, Lifetime has the TV movie premiere of Dancing Through the Snow, and LMN has the TV movie premiere of Dying for a Good Grade.

On streaming, as of this morning, Amazon has the series premiere of The Wheel of Time, Apple TV+ has the first season finale of Foundation, drops Part 1 of Harriett the Spy and the second season finale of The Morning Show, HBO Max drops the third season of Stath Lets Flats, Hulu drops the second season of The Great, and Netflix drops the first seasons of Cowboy Bebop and Hellbound.

I quite liked Cowboy Bepop. I’ve never watched the anime on which it is based and other reviews I’ve seen seem to not like it, but I don’t have a preconceived notion of what the show should be. It’s quippy fun with a lot of action that is very stylized, much in the same way as Killjoys, which was a favorite of mine, and was also about space bounty hunters. If you like that kind of show, I think you’ll like this one.

Next Friday, Amazon has The Wheel of Time S.1 Ep.4 and Netflix drops Part 1 of Light the Night.
