Young Rock and Kenan Reviews

A pilot of a new series is akin to the first chapter of a book. Whether or not a viewer keeps watching is often dependent on how they feel about this new world they have been introduced to.

Last night, two new shows premiered on NBC, Young Rock and Kenan.

The premise of Young Rock is that The Rock (aka Dwayne Johnson) is running for President in 2032. He sits down with an interviewer to tell his story.

On Kenan (Kenan Thompson) the title character is a television host and a recent widower living in Atlanta. Supported by his brother, Gary (Chris Redd) and his father-in-law Rick (Don Johnson), he is attempting to put his life together after his wife’s passing.

I told myself that I wanted to give both shows on a shot. Now that I have, I can move on. Young Rock is boring and Kenan is just a modern reboot of Full House.

Do I recommend them? No.

Kenan and Young Rock air consecutively at 8:00 and 8:30 on NBC on Tuesday.

The Rock Speaks the Truth

These days, one’s head would have to be in the sand to not recognize the multiple crisis’s we are living through.

Unfortunately, the man we elected to the highest political office in the United States has pushed his head so deep in the sand that it has yet to fully emerge.

Yesterday, YouTube released a video in which actor/WWE superstar The Rock pleads with you know who to do the job American voters hired him to do.

Now if only you know who would listen.

The New Jumanji Movie-Why?

The trailer for the new Jumanji reboot has just been released.

I have one question and one question only: why did this movie need to be re-made?

The 1995 original movie, starring the late and sorely missed Robin Williams is to my mind, a new classic. It’s an adventure film with the perfect Robin Williams twist.

I have nothing against The Rock, or Karen Gillian, but why a) is she the only female and b) why as usual is so skinny and her costume tiny?

Only time will tell if this film succeeds or flops at the box office. But for my money, I prefer the original 1995 film.
