What I'm Watching on #Netflix

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

This week's picks from Netflix Instant Watch:

TV Show:
Roast of Charlie Sheen is an Comedy Central special where a bunch of comedians and guests join host Seth McFarlane (Family Guy, The Cleveland Show) in taking the mickey out of Charlie Sheen. It is uncensored, unflinching, and sort of funny in some places. Charlie Sheen has just come off a very public meltdown and some of the jokes seem too soon, but Charlie shows he can take the punches. He did create plenty of fodder for this roasting and they burn the heck out of him. Kate Walsh and Mike Tyson, though not comedians, get the most laughs.

Movie:
O.J.: Monster or Myth?attempts to separate facts from rumors in this documentary that looks back at the key players in the murder trial of the 21st century. There are candid interviews with lawyers from both sides and the most infamous murder defendant himself mixed with media and courtroom video clips. I don't think this documentary proves anything except how many lives were damaged by the crimes and the subsequent trails (criminal and civic). It was interesting to watch one defense lawyer describe how he was shunned by his social circle. It really shed a light on the ripple effects of the trial. I don't think anyone who was involved returned to a normal life.

I don't think i'd be interested in either of these. I remember when the roast was on, I didn't even take a peek lol

I hate that in this day and age, we're still having unsolved crimes! OJ will probably be remembered forever for maybe murdering his ex-wife!?!? I know that it screws up a lot of people's lives too, especially the innocents who never get any closure.
