Atypicalpremieres worldwide August 11and today Netflix debuts this first look clip from the premiere episode — parents of teenagers will relate.
Sam decides it is time to go on a date, find a girlfriend and hopefully love, a journey that sets Sam’s mother, Elsa (played by Jason Leigh), on her own life-changing path as her son seeks more independence. Sam’s entire family must adjust to change, all while exploring the question: what does it really mean to be “normal”?

The Black Lighting is coming the the CW this fall and there are no plans for Black Lighting to be part of the Arrowverse. According to network president Mark Pedowitz that there will be another Arrow/Flash/Supergirl/Legends of Tomorrow but Black Lighting will be in another universe.
One of the reasons that Black Lighting will be set in a different universe is the location. Black Lighting will be filmed in Atlanta while the other shows are all in filmed in Vancouver. So doing a cross over can be a little difficult with all the travel.
My feeling is the show will take on the same theme as the other show have of protecting a city. After watching the trailer I did get a Luke Cage feel for it. Unlike the Luke Cage where Luke is interested in protect Harlem, Black Lighting will be protecting his city. Black Lighting maybe the CW’s attempt of getting some of the same audience as Luke Cage. My feeling is that the ability of Marvel to go a little darker on Netflix will give Luke Cage the edge.
The show does have something different from the other shows on the CW. This show leads are black and hopefully it tackles some more adult stories and not worry about the pretty young people. Tackling what it is to be a black vigilante that is a hero and the struggles it is to be one. Time will tell if the audience will jump on board and follow another superhero show on the CW.
I came across this trailer will looking at other trailers. Well to be honest I feel down that movie trailer rabbit hole. But DAM I am glad I found this one.

The good old days when woman had their own wrestling federation and could beat the crap out of each other. Well that was the idea.
I was into just starting to get back into wrestling when GLOW started up. I think I may have watched one show….I think. I do know that as much as knew that at the time the WWF was basically a male soap opera. I was not going to watch GLOW even for the ladies. So I can not even tell you what it was like, good or bad. But I can tell you that I am planning on watch the Netflix upcoming comedy series that takes a look at that time in wrestling history.
GLOW is premiering on Netflix June 23.
GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin) a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.
Inspired by the short-lived, but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom. GLOW is created by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie, Orange Is The New Black, Weeds). Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann executive producers alongside Flahive and Mensch who are serving as showrunners.
Okay I have no idea what this about. Well a girl who is her own boss. Yeah I know your thinking it’s more than that and of course it is, duh. But it does look interesting. Interesting enough for this 55 year old white dude to watch.
Girlboss is inspired by the New York Times best-selling book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal. The series centers on Amoruso (Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and, by the age of 27, had built the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal.
Girlboss is created by and executive produced by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect 1& 2, 30 Rock), who also serves as showrunner. Charlize Theron (Monster, Young Adult), Laverne McKinnon and Beth Kono of Denver & Delilah, Christian Ditter (How to Be Single) and Sophia Amoruso will also serve as executive producers. This is a Netflix production and there will be 13-half hour episodes.
