Marc Maron: End Times Fun
Talk about comic timing. Marc Maron named and filmed this special before the coronavirus got its sickly grip on the world.
This means the angst-ridden Maron makes no mention at all of covid-19 and instead worries about pre-coronavirus problems like worrying about not being woke enough, surviving in a world without cellphones and why we should all be taking turmeric for our health even though he's entirely convinced it does nothing.
It's a nice, almost nostalgic, break to sit back and remember a time a month or so ago when all we had to fear was fear itself and not a highly contagious virus.
Oprah's Book Club
Apple TV +
During this time of self-isolation, what better way to pass the time than reading a book and joining Oprah for a discussion with the author. Winfrey hand-picks each book and invites viewers to take a deep dive into the story behind the pages. American Dirt, the subject of the third episode, is a novel that sparked as much controversy as sales. Join Oprah as she gets to the heart of the matter with author Jeanine Cummins. Streaming now.
Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw
Looking for some mindless escapism to take your mind off, well, everything? Then buckle up and hit play on this high-octane, low brain power, spin-off from the Fast & Furious franchise. This flick, which just zoomed on to Neon, is basically a turbo-charged buddy flick as unlikely allies Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson and Jason "Action-Man" Statham team up to stop a cyber-genetically enhanced villain from taking over the world. It sounds exactly like the sort of big dumb distraction we need right now.
