On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), both set on sending her away to a finishing school for “proper” young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord (Louis Partridge), Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history. Based on the beloved book series by Nancy Springer, Enola Holmes is a dynamic new mystery-adventure that introduces the world’s greatest detective to his fiercest competition yet: his teenage sister. The game is afoot. For more info, go to: netflix.com/enolaholmes.
The Boys in the Band Releases September 30
More than fifty years after Mart Crowley’s play became an unexpected smash hit for putting gay men’s lives center stage with honesty and humor, The Boys in the Band returns to the screen in a new adaptation that reunites acclaimed director Joe Mantello with the all-star cast of the Tony-winning, 2018 Broadway production. In 1968 New York City – when being gay was still considered to be best kept behind closed doors – a group of friends gather for a raucous birthday party hosted by Michael (Jim Parsons), a screenwriter who spends and drinks too much, in honor of the sharp-dressed and sharp-tongued Harold (Zachary Quinto). Other partygoers include Donald (Matt Bomer), Michael’s former flame, now mired in self-analysis; Larry (Andrew Rannells), a randy commercial artist living with Hank (Tuc Watkins), a school teacher who has just left his wife; Bernard (Michael Benjamin Washington), a librarian tiptoeing around fraught codes of friendship alongside Emory (Robin de Jesús), a decorator who never holds back; and a guileless hustler (Charlie Carver), hired to be Harold’s gift for the night. What begins as an evening of drinks and laughs gets upended when Alan (Brian Hutchison), Michael’s straight-laced college roommate, shows up unexpectedly and each man is challenged to confront long-buried truths that threaten the foundation of the group’s tight bond.

This is Hot (should be its own page)
Two things I really love are nighttime soap opera’s (ala…Dynasty, Falcon Crest, Desperate Housewives, Dallas, Devious Maids, and my all-time favorite Knots Landing), and high-profile Televangelists. I, by no means, am making fun of religion, but I love the theatrics of the Televangelists. My favorite is Joel Osteen, and even though I am not a religious person, I sometimes find myself watching him for hours at a time. Generally, I do come out feeling better about life. Well you can imagine my surprise when I got the media invitation to watch the first three episodes of Filthy Rich, which combines both loves.
From writer/director Tate Taylor comes Filthy Rich, a southern Gothic family drama in which wealth, power and religion intersect – more correctly, collide. Meet the Monreauxes, a mega-rich Southern family famed for creating a wildly successful Christian television network. “The Sunshine Network. On the cusp of launching a digital retail arm of the company, the family’s patriarch, Eugene (Gerald McRaney) dies in a plane crash (or so we think), leaving Margaret (Kim Cattrall, “Sex and the City”), a now-“Oprah” to the religious and Southern communities, to take charge of the family business. Not surprisingly, Eugene’s apparent death greatly impacts the Monreaux children: Eric (Corey Cott), the couple’s ambitious son, married to the prim and snooty Becky (Olivia Macklin), who assumes he will now run the show; and daughter Rose (Aubrey Dollar), a budding fashion designer, who constantly struggles to evade the vast shadow cast by her mother.
If that wasn’t enough, the Monreauxes are stunned to learn that Eugene fathered three illegitimate children, all of whom are written into his will. Now, Margaret must use her business savvy and Southern charm to control her newly legitimized heirs, whose very existence threatens the Monreaux family name and fortune: Ginger (Melia Kreiling), Antonio (newcomer Benjamin Levy Aguilar), and Jason (Mark L. Young).
Margaret’s rock is her lifelong confidant and friend, Franklin Lee (Steve Harris), the Monreaux family lawyer, who has her back in the wake of the death of her husband and threats to the Monreaux empire, one of them being the beloved, popular, influential, and ambitious minister at the Sunshine Network, Reverend Paul Thomas (Aaron Lazar…who looks a lot life Joel Osteen), who doesn’t think Margaret is capable of running the network, a newly announced retail venture, and her TV show simultaneously.
With monumental twists and turns, not to mention lies, deceit and shade from every direction, Filthy Rich presents a world in which everyone has an ulterior motive – and no one is going down without a fight.
If the first three episodes are any indication, this is a must watch show, as I am already addicted.
