"Sizzling Chemistry, Explosive Action: The Ultimate Mr. and Mrs. Smith Review You Can't Miss"

 "Mr. and Mrs. Smith on Amazon Prime wasn't what I expected. And thank goodness for that!" The announcement of yet another remake often triggers groans, but my skepticism vanished when I heard Donald Glover and Francesca Sloane were attached to this project. Glover, fresh off the chilling "SWARM," and Sloane, with her experience on "Atlanta" and "Fargo," promised a unique spin on the classic story. Did they deliver?

The show opens with John (Glover) and Jane (Erskine) Smith meeting virtually – not through a dating app, but through an espionage agency's AI questionnaire. Pasts are erased, identities fabricated, and boom, they're married partners in both love and lethal missions. They travel the world, gather intel, eliminate targets, and find solace in each other's arms. It's the ultimate test of compatibility: can their skills conquer missions while their hearts navigate the rollercoaster of a real relationship?

Glover is phenomenal, seamlessly transitioning from his signature charm to a convincing action hero. I wouldn't have envisioned him in high-octane fight scenes, but he pulls it off with the agility of a seasoned pro. Erskine, a new face for me, is a revelation. Her voice-acting background translates beautifully to her on-screen presence. She's effortlessly relatable, bringing both humor and depth to Jane. Their chemistry is undeniable, sizzling with the complexities of love, partnership, and the thrill (and occasional absurdity) of their covert lives.

"Mr. & Mrs. Smith" delivers a potent blend of action, dark humor, and emotional depth. The world feels grounded and immersive, a stark contrast to the glossy Hollywood version. While comparisons might be inevitable, this show carves its own path, offering a more nuanced exploration of relationships and the psychological impact of a life shrouded in espionage.

Despite its strengths, there are minor stumbles. Pacing can be uneven, and some episodes suffer from weaker plotting. However, the show's overall charm and originality easily overshadow these hiccups.

Should you watch it? Absolutely! "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" is a refreshing take on familiar tropes, with stellar performances, witty dialogue, and action sequences that keep you on the edge of your seat. Whether you're a fan of the original film or simply enjoy spy thrillers with a dash of humor and humanity, this show is definitely worth your time.

Final Grade: B+ (with potential to reach A- in future seasons)

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes. 1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matc

Scissor Seven on Netflix Stream or Skip

STREAM OR SKIP?   Scissor Seven is a Chinese animated series that was streamed in 2018 with the name of Killer Seven. As soon as Netflix streamed this show at the start of 2020, it became a hit globally! With the increasing popularity of Anime, Netflix has created a whole Anime library for anime fans. Scissor Seven is the first Chinese anime being streamed on Netflix. It’s a serious debate on whether to call it an anime or not, but I won’t get into that discussion for now.   Why Should You Watch Scissor Seven? If I needed to coat only a single thing in the list of why you should be watching it that would be the COMEDY! It is hilarious! Seven might not be the best killer, but that Goofy-head is the best entertainer for sure! It is a hilarious satire on the whole hero business, as we can how Seven is nothing but a Professional Goof! Scissors is his ultimate weapon on which he uses his telekinetic abilities. Every Hero needs a sidekick, here our sidekick is an angry bird with
