Where I Watched It: My local PBS station.
Would I Recommend It: Yes. A big big yes.
My Review: Do you have even a passing interest in Hamilton and/or American history? This documentary tracks the creation of the Broadway sensation as well as the history that inspired. It also gives us the best look we've seen of a professional recording of Hamilton on Broadway as well as much more of their performance at the White House. Interviews with the cast and a wide range of historians and politicians (including President Barack Obama) explain to us just how important Hamilton is as both an art form and a political statement. Do yourself a favor and watch this the first chance you get.
Where I Watched It: Netflix.
Would I Recommend It: Yes.
My Review: I can say for sure I was not expecting to love Luke Cage as much as I did. It proves that Netflix's ability to meld superheroes and the current societal culture in Jessica Jones wasn't a one off. Mike Colter is Marvel's first black lead actor, and he leads a cast of mostly minority actors. You can read about people unironically complaining about the lack of white representation at Salon.com. The show fully embraces the unique struggles a black superhero crusading through modern day Harlem would experience, all while set to an amazing hip hop soundtrack. Although it was filmed before the Black Lives Matter movement began to dominate headlines, it fully embraces the movement's crusade. As is said in the finale, "Who would have thought a black man in a hoodie would be a hero?" Log on to Netflix and watch this show as soon as you can.
