Every week, I list all the upcoming (or recently released) movies, TV shows, albums, podcasts, etc. that I believe are worth checking out.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Theatrically Nationwide) – Quentin Tarantino keeps getting closer to retirement. Sooner or later, we’re all out of the game.

Jane the Virgin Series Finale (July 31 on The CW)
Sherman’s Showcase Series Premiere (July 31 on IFC) – Sort of a fictional Soul Train.

-Of Monsters and Men, Fever Dream

SNL Recap May 4, 2013: Zach Galifianakis/Of Monster and Men
