The film "Breaking Bad" is not the only television event of October: Michael B. Jordan raises a superhero, Paul Rudd meets Paul Rudd and "Big Mouth" is back!
1. "El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie" (available October 11th)
Why should I watch? How can you not clock? After delivering one of the few best-loved series finals ever and then following him with an unlikely success prequel series, Vince Gilligan decided to continue the story of "Breaking Bad" through his only surviving character, Jesse Pinkman.
Aaron Paul has always been a game to return to the role, making fun of cameos on "Better Call Saul" for years, and now the world will see if a new movie – er, sorry, a new "Netflix Television Event" can regain the magic that fascinated TV viewers (and Emmy voters) for five fascinating seasons.
Whether excellent as his predecessors or as terrible as our worst nightmares, "El Camino" is still a must.
Bonus reason: Written and directed by Gilligan, "El Camino" is also an invitation to see how "Breaking Bad" works in a new format. This is a unique film, not an ongoing series. The saga of the drug that had arrived earlier was based on addiction: a fleeing momentum train that jutted forward until Walter White (Bryan Cranston) ended up off the track.
"El Camino" is a shorter ride; an epilogue for Jesse Pinkman; a full bow in two hours instead of 62. What will Gilligan do with time? Collapse a similar thriller or explore a whole new genre through its old established character?
No matter what, it will be exciting to find out.
2. Season 3 of "Big Mouth" (available now)
Why should I watch? "Big Mouth" is really cool. He is nominated for an Emmy, nominated for the Gotham Award and approved by critics across the board. He has a cast of excellent comedians, from co-creator Nick Kroll to John Mulaney, Jenny Slate, Jessi Klein, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas and Andrew Rannells. It has excellent original music, colorful and creative animations and writing keeps things moving in a clip that guarantees your attention. If you have yet to discover "Big Mouth", a hellish spree awaits you this month.
Bonus reason: With "BoJack Horseman" ending this season, the landscape of adult animation is losing a titan – which means that it is even more critical that "Big Mouth" stays around, grows in public awareness and otherwise gets the He deserves attention. Fortunately, Netflix has renewed it for another three seasons. Even better, season 3 shows no decline in quality, so this Netflix original is ready to resume the game of the upcoming show.
3. Season 1 of "Raising Dion" (available now)
Why should I watch? Based on Dennis Liu's comic and short film of 2015, the new Netflix original series brings Michael B. Jordan back into the world of superhero dramas. Of course, he blew the roof of the place with "Black Panther", but years before Jordan was a support star in Josh Trank's famous science fiction movie, "Chronicle" – and while "Raising Dion" wasn't made with "movies" found ", It is a young man who gets super powers and learns to use them for the better. Ja’Siah Young plays Dion, a boy who is still recovering from the death of his father (Jordan), while his mother, Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), is between a job and another. "Raising Dion" focuses more on Nicole and Dion than anyone else – relegating Jordan to the role of guest star – but tells a mystery to families full of missing people, suspicious societies and, not to think it's totally off the rails, a mother relationship -son with respect for their specific reality. Also, the Jordan executive produces, so it's not like ever really went.
Bonus reason: By now Jason Ritter has enchanted you in one show or another. Whether it was "Parenthood", "Drunk History", "Gravity Falls", "Another Period" or "God help you", "The Tale", the affable son of John Ritter proved to be a versatile actor of characters and offers a welcome support role here, as the generous and ever-available godfather of Dion. Although you hoped to see Michael B. Jordan in every episode, Ritter will quickly alleviate any disappointment.
4. Season 1 "Living with yourself" (available from October 18)
Why should I watch? How much do you like Paul Rudd? Have you ever wished there were two? Well, Netflix has received your message and gives you two for the price of Rudd. "Living With Yourself" focuses on Miles (Rudd), a marketing executive stuck in a roadway – his work bores him, he is going through the motions with his wife and is generally dissatisfied. So he runs a big risk and invests a slice of change in a company that promises to provide a new and improved version of the Miles, whatever happens. Well, things don't go exactly as planned, and suddenly he finds himself in a struggle for everything he was taking for granted. A comedy without fear of asking big questions, "Living with yourself" brings you all the sides of Rudd into beautiful pieces of half an hour.
Bonus reason: Created by "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" screenwriter Timothy Greenberg, "Living With Yourself" is also directed and executive produced by "Little Miss Sunshine" helmsmen Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. Imagining the lovely comic styles of Paul Rudd mixed with the creative spirit behind "Ruby Sparks" is all the motivation we need to push the game.
5. Season 5 "Schitt's Creek" (available from 10 October)
Why should I watch? Play the name "Schitt's Creek" extra familiar? Of course, it is part of a very common phrase involving a paddle and, presumably, a raft of some kind, but "Schitt of"With the addition of" c "and" t "it should look a little brighter right now because the comedy PopTV was recently nominated for four Primetime Emmy Awards – stars Eugene Levy and Catherine O & # 39; Hara earned accolades as a leading actor while the series itself made its way into a very competitive field for the best comedy. Has anyone won? No, but Emmys are often a war of attrition: first you are nominated, then you have been nominated More, then win. Consider the complete Phase One.
Bonus reason: Now the bad news: "Schitt's Creek" has no time for a three-stage Emmy plan because it is ending next season! But do not worry. All this means that more people (like you, if you are still reading) have to get on the wagon and enjoy this fascinating treasure of a family comedy while it is still fresh. Have a look at Season 5 when it is published on Netflix and get ready for Season 6 which debuts in January 2020. You can enjoy several episodes full of wonderful comedy, plus you'll be ready to see the end in the same way as the biggest fans they do it: while it develops. Get one or two Emmy victories for "Schitt's Creek" in 2020, and it's a win for both sides.
6. "The Kominsky Method" Season 2 (available from 25 October)
Michael Yarish / Netflix
Why should I watch? Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin remain the main attraction for this Netflix original about an acting coach and his aging manager. The two share a solid set in Season 1 – the kind of old friend that could be even brighter while they spend more time together. If it looks like your cup of tea, you'll find a lot to enjoy in this Hollywood-based comedy.
Bonus reason: Chuck Lorre had a taste of the race to the awards last year, when his first pseudo-serious comedy (aka dramedy, aka non-single-cam show CBS) won the sitcom veteran a Golden Globe for best comedy series ( and the show won another one for Douglas as a leading actor). But despite the three Emmy nominations, Lorre himself could not break the race – perhaps this will motivate him to dive deeper, to become more fun and to find some truth damn truth in this random study of old they want to be young again – if only they could freely pee. Oh, and season 2 includes Paul Reiser and Jane Seymour. They are very nice.
7. Season 1 "Alba" (available from 24 October)
Ursula Coyote / Netflix
Why should I watch? I am legally obliged to mention, or even recommend, everything that sees Matthew Broderick playing a sort of school official. Sure, "Election" is a fantastic series, and yes, "The Politician" was borrowed from the best only a little last month, but even Broderick is having a good time: his last four television roles were in "BoJack Horseman", "The Conners" (alongside the great Laurie Metcalf, which is important), "At Home With Amy Sedaris", and "Better Things" – so this post-apocalyptic comedy for teenagers on survivors of a post-nuclear high school explosion, well, it could be a big swing and a lack. But with the hot Broderick series on the line, we're willing to give it a try.
Bonus reason: The official synopsis of Netflix describes "Alba" as "part of the saga of the samurai, partly captivating history of maturity and partly Battle Royale". I do not know you, but it is a seductive and strange combination of genres, and the desert … like the atmosphere seen in the first trailer also evokes the wild energy of "Mad Max". So let's take a look at this strange little show and see if it's worth cheering for the selected tribe of survivors – or against.
