I watched the first episode of The Netflix Afterparty, a talk show featuring conversations, skits and more with the stars of the newest and biggest Netflix titles months ago. The bad news is that the thoughts that went through my mind during and at the end of episode one weren’t great.
Hosted by David Spade, Fortune Feimster and London Hughes, I knew that the first episode was unlikely to be excellent. What I didn’t expect was to find a few things I liked.
Matters weren’t helped by the surprisingly feeble sound of audience applause at the start. Additionally, it may be that I’d forgotten about the nature of Spade’s charm because his delivery often came across as lazy and the comedy skits proved more cringe-worthy than funny.
Besides the idea of a fun new talk show, what drew me to The Netflix Afterparty is rising standup comedy star, Fortune Feimster. The good news is that by episodes, two and three, some adjustments had been made to the show. Not a lot of change because there’s still room for improvement in areas including format, people speaking over each other, and how fun/funny the show is.
What I know for sure is that Feimster is my favourite. So much so that I’ve wondered how much more fun The Netflix Afterparty would be if she were the sole presenter. Or, if it were just Feimster and Hughes as the presenters.
I plan to check in periodically to see what other changes are made. And I look forward to more engaging interview questions and even better chemistry between the hosts.
New weekly talkshow The Netflix Afterparty is hosted by David Spade, Fortune Feimster and London Hughes. The focus is on conversations, skits and more with stars of the newest and biggest Netflix titles.
Some key guests include comedian Bill Burr, Kevin Hart and other stars such as Lily Collins, Anya Taylor Joy and many more.
I haven’t watched all the shows some of the guests appear in; so I mostly just want to find out how well this concept works and hopefully feel as though I’m in fun company while watching.
It’s already clear that most of the guests are in shows that premiered weeks, if not months ago. Therefore, something tells me this concept may work better if the featured guests appeared during the week of or soon after a show’s premier. I could be wrong, of course. Will have to watch to find out. Fingers crossed it’s good/fun.
In Warning Shot, Tammy Blanchard is a single mother struggling to make ends meet. That is until she inherits her family’s farmhouse. Unfortunately for her, a business rival covets the water rights and so begins the nightmare…
I want to see Blanchard’s character fight and win. I’m also excited to watch funny man David Spade play a powerful and very bad man.
Niki Kloss, Guillermo Díaz and Bruce Dern also star.
