Weekend Preview: Eddie Murphy’s ‘Dolemite’ And The Last Of ‘Bojack Horseman’ Arrive On Netflix
Bojack Horseman (Friday, Netflix series) — The final half of the final season of everyone’s favorite failed legendary ’90s TV comedy star has arrived. Now, he’s really pushing for a comeback, but will all that self-loathing and alcohol stand in the way? Probably, but Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, and Amy Sedaris will carry us to the finish line.
Dolemite Is My Name (Friday, Netflix film) — Eddie Murphy is officially back, y’all. And he’s streaming on Netflix as struggling comedian Rudy Ray Moore, who assumes a new persona, Dolemite, a pimp with a vividly obscene mouth and the air of 1970s LA around him. Keegan-Michael Key also stars as a writer enlisted by Moore to pen a movie filled with kung fu and car chases, which leads to box-office glory.
Daybreak (Friday, Netflix series) — Matthew Broderick portrays a high school principal in this post-apocalyptic, genre-bending series where all the cliques are fighting for survival amid nuclear fallout. Netflix describes this one as “part samurai saga, part endearing coming-of-age story, and part Battle Royale.” Alright!
The Kominsky Method (Friday, Netflix series) — The second season of this critically acclaimed Netflix comedy series starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin has arrived. The two pals continue to tackle life’s curveballs in LA, the city that loves young folk, while confronting the harsh realities of aging. Paul Reiser will guest star.
