DT’s entertainment show, Between the Streams, is your guide to all of the hottest, most important, and (of course) dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment, providing a handy recap of the week that was. (You can also add us via RSS, iTunes, or Stitcher at the links above to take BtS on the road!)
Comedian Eliza Skinner has bravely volunteered to join the fray as our first celebrity guest. A prolific writer, stand-up comedian, and rap battler extraordinaire, Eliza comes to our home base of Portland, Oregon, as part of the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and she’s come by the studio to tell us what she’s been up to, make fun of us, and yell about silly movies and TV shows. Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, Eliza has written for and appeared on multiple TV shows, including Adam Ruins Everything and Totally Biased, and she currently has a gig as a writer for the red-hot Brit James Cordon on The Late Late Show.
After picking Eliza’s brain a bit (and hopefully convincing her to rap for us), topics for today’s show will include the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles abomination, and the sequel apocalypse that has become Hollywood.
We’ll also be discussing Netflix’s new women’s wrestling comedy based on GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling), a crazy series about over-the-top wrestlers, pitting good against hilarious evil, that ran for four seasons in the ’80s. The series even had its own horrible rap a la the Super Bowl Shuffle that is so epically bad — well, you just have to see it for yourself. Perhaps most notable about the series, apart from its very intriguing premise, is the fact that Orange is the New Black show creator Jenji Kohan will be producing.
There’s also Star Wars Rogue One reshoot rumors, and much more, so join us today at 2 p.m. PT, or take us with you for the weekend.
