When carefree Nyles and reluctant maid of honor Sarah have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated as they are unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other.
A modern take on Groundhog Day, that is mostly romantic comedy with just a little bit of science fiction, currently streaming on Hulu. Starring Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti, and J.K. Simmons, Palm Springs is a highly entertaining film with a running time of a mere 90 minutes.
A hapless UN employee discovers that the agency he works for is hiding a gateway to a parallel dimension that’s in a cold war with our own, and where his other self is a top spy. The war slowly heats up thanks to spies from both sides.
After repeated mentions by Jason Snell on the podcast Tim Goodman’s TV Talk Machine, I finally watched Counterpart. The show originally aired on Starz and is now available on Amazon Prime Video.
The show can be a bit confusing to follow at times, so I’d limit multitasking as much as possible. Without spoiling anything, there’s not much else I can say other than the show is so good that I wish it had been picked up for a third season.
