This TV comedy series follows the political career trajectory of Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) who works in the Parks and Recreation department of a small town in Indiana. The show features a full cast of quirky characters from April (Aubrey Plaza), the sulking twenty-something receptionist; to Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), the ultra-masculine, libertarian, meat-eater; to Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe), the always upbeat, vegetarian, political middle manager. Parks and Recreation will put a smile on your face.
Starring Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, and Rob Lowe.
In this Australian TV comedy series, a surgeon who likes his single life (and nightlife) a bit too much is about to lose his medical license unless he cleans up his act and is offered one chance. He has to go back to his home town and be a GP.
I enjoy The Heart Guy because deep down I think Rodger is a good guy and has to come to the rescue every episode (like most of the doctor shows) and save the day. He has a quirky kind of family, which provide some of the humor. He is gradually starting to like his boss, and vice versa (reminds me a little of Doc Martin).
Check out season one on Hoopla—I think it's worth a shot.
The Crimson Pirate is a family classic that you can watch with your kids. It follows pirate Captain Vallo as he sails about the 1700s Caribbean pursuing money-making schemes ranging from seizing British vessels to kidnapping. But when he falls for the beautiful Consuelo, he changes his pirate ways. This swashbuckling comedy is good, clean fun.
Starring Burt Lancaster, Nick Cravat, and Eva Bartok.

Yes, the title of this novel is correct. This is how most of the writing is in this book, but it is for a specific reason. The aliebn Jonny has come to Earth to learn what it is like to be a human being. This journey as to what it means to be a human being and how to make friends. The author Jomny Sun does an amazing job with showing some deep feeling and resonating with the people who are reading it who might not fit in where they are in life. A quote from this book that I believe sums up the tone is, "look. life is bad. everyone is sad. we're all gona die. but i alredy bought this inflatable bouncy castle so are u gona take ur shoes off or wat". I loved this book.
Everyone's an aliebn when you're an aliebn too is available as an eBook and eAudiobook on Hoopla.
What an absolute delight! I loved watching the DVD "Cruella" (Rated PG-13). Emma Stone portrays Estella (Cruella) Deville perfectly. This is the predecessor to the animated Disney movie "101 Dalmatians" and why Cruella is the way she is and why she detests damnations so much. This is the story of how Estella grows up with wanting to become a fashion designer. She grabs the attention of the famous designer the Baroness von Hellman (played by Emma Thompson) and realizes that she more talented than the Baroness. The casting of characters is unbelievable when they truly portray the animated characters. The music and fashion in the movie are exciting and fun. Estelle has a revengeful and nasty personality as she transforms into Curella. I highly recommend this movie.
Set against the backdrop of the financial crisis of 2008, Up in the Air (Rated R) follows Ryan Bingham as he flies around the country doing his job--firing people. His spartan lifestyle, which keeps him almost constantly airborne en route to the next city, suits him just fine. But when a new business model and a romantic entanglement threaten his comfortable existence, his goals shift unexpectedly.
Starring George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, and Anna Kendrick.
This is a terrific TV show. While some of the characters can seem a bit corny (like the town police officer who reminds me of Barney Fife from The Andy Griffith Show), the humor is mixed with drama as Doc Martin has to save the day when medical emergencies occur every show.
Also compelling is the on and off relationship between Doctor Ellingham and his sweetheart Louisa (Caroline Catz).But what I like best is where they live: every show takes place in a beautiful seaside English port where each day is sunny and gorgeous. I think it's is worth watching for the scenery alone.
Watch all nine seasons of Doc Martin (2004-) on Hoopla today. Start with season 1.
This is one of my favorite TV shows. They make the boring lives of ordinary people seem funny. I think I would fit in well with this group. While Andy and Lance are the primary characters, I think it's the supporting players that steal the show. From the other members of their detectorist club to the guys in their rival club, I find myself laughing and hoping Lance and Andy will find the treasure that keeps escaping them.
I highly recommend Detectorists (2014-2017). It should be watched from the beginning. Check out season 1 on Hoopla today!
