If you’re in the mood for a laugh this month Netflix has you covered with season two of the family/zombie comedy series Santa Clarita Diet and the Die Hard-ish action comedy Game Over, Man!, both of which premiere on 23 March.
In case you missed it the first time around, and I’d recommend you catch up because it’s pretty damn good, the show synopsis for Santa Clarita Diet is as follows:
Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant star in this Netflix-original series as married realtors, Sheila and Joel, who are living a quiet life, raising their teenage daughter in Santa Clarita, Calif. Their world unexpectedly changes when Sheila goes through a dramatic transformation that sends her down a road of death and destruction — but leaves her looking and feeling better than ever.
Season two will see Sheila struggling more than ever to control her appetite, while Joel… Joel is Joel.
If you’re not in the mood for bingeing a series and would prefer a movie to tickle your funny bone, Netflix has you covered as well with Game Over, Man!
It’s written and directed by the Workaholics duo of Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck, and also features the series’ leads Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, and Holm. They play a trio of waiters slash prospective video game developers hoping to get their dream project financed, only to have their financier taken hostage by terrorists who attack their hotel.
The official plot synopsis is as follows:
Three dudes must level up and save the day from the evil terrorists who have taken their hotel hostage.
Neal McDonough always makes an excellent campy villain. This looks like silly fun, and that’s just fine with me. Perfect for a Friday night after a long week of work, just kick back, switch off your brain, and have a chuckle (or giggle, should you prefer).
What do you think? TIMES TWO!
