Where to watch it: Netflix

Seasons available: One

Spoilers: No

Miles Elliot has just been coasting through life. His work has been subpar when he use to be a superstar at his advertising company. His marriage has been strained as his wife has not been able to conceive since suffering a miscarriage. He has been rescheduling his appointment with the fertility specialist for months. His life is circling the drain before his eyes but he can’t seem to muster up the energy to do anything about it. Until a coworker tells him about a mysterious spa that will help him be his best self. In act of desperation, he drains his savings and goes to a sketchy looking shopping center for an unknown procedure performed by strange Asian “doctors”. He wakes up buried naked in a forest. If that’s not weird enough when he makes his way home, he find another Miles Elliot in bed with his wife.

Rating: A-

Is it worth watching: Yes! I don’t want to give too much away so this review is short but it is a hilarious dark comedy, staring Paul Rudd. First, it has Paul Rudd so I’m sold. Second, this show unfolds fairly quickly- there’s only eight episodes. It’s a quick binge. Watching Miles discover what happened, try to decide what to do and how to navigate life with a second, better-at-everything Miles is so funny. Then the end, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry, it’s such a mess (but in a good way). It is set up for another season so hopefully, Netflix will renew it.

Sharon Isom

Once upon a time, Sharon was invited to attend a comic convention. She had always wanted to go to a comic-con but thought it was out of her reach. While at this convention, she met Richard who asked her if she could write. She scoffed. Of course she was capable of writing. But then he clarified and asked if she would be willing to a be a writer for TBK Magazine. She agreed. Little did she know that she was signing on to become a podcaster, assistant editor of the magazine, Vice President of a publishing company, best mensch, and a sister. Her whole world would expand for the better after that trip in 2016. She would be forever grateful. The magazine would be her safe haven and the staff would become a part of her family. And still to this day, Richard has not fulfilled his promise of singing the cow song to Sharon.   Sharon was born in mid 1980’s and raised in Northeastern Arkansas. She has been married to her childhood sweetheart, Jesse, since 2004. They have two amazing sons. Outside of her official TBK responsibilities, she works as a nurse.   She loves theater, costumes, cosplay, and Halloween. She is addicted to Chapstick and will ALWAYS have at least one with her at all times. She despises spiral staircase, escalators, and people that do not understand how four way stops work.
