Small Screen Highlights: What we’re watching

If our team is any indication the future is all online, from docuseries Rotten to Broad City, Fleabag, Vida, Russian detectives, Fortnite trailers and makeup tutorials.

George Dunford, our Content Director, says he finally caught up with the 5th and final season of Broad City. ‘I’m going to miss my gal pals who have grown over the half decade but thankfully never grown up, or become too serious. Episode one is a case in point as Abbi Jacobson celebrates her 30th birthday (so old right?) by making a pilgrimage traversing Manhattan. It’s filmed by Alana Glazer in Instagram style with emojis and captions splashed over the phone-shot video. The comedic chemistry is bubbling over with Alana giving the “gift” of several shots of Abbi’s ass filmed throughout the series, complete with surprised shots and mild confusion from Abbi. It’s the kind of thing that can only happen between two performers who know and trust each other so well.  [Spoiler ahead] They find at the end of their pilgrimage that they’ve been so frantically filming Instagram Stories that they can’t remember their own stories of the day. The last five years of the show feel the same.’
