Y’all, pickins be so slim this week! People are watching football, or watching them leafs change, or planning for All Hallow’s Eve (I got Bugsy a lion costume). What aren’t they doing? Solving murders. No wait, that’s not right. Let’s run that back. What aren’t they doing? Putting out quality streaming product for us to enjoy and smile knowingly toward. But, real talk, they probably aren’t solving murders either.

Let’s break it down!

Top Netflix Streaming of the Week (streaming)
Big Ass Spider!
Generally, if you include an exclamation point in your title you’ll find plenty of love from me. So far as I can tell this movie is about a largish spider, a spider who has grown, a spider who is fully engorged. In other words, a spider who will mess up your day. The other reason I chose this film is its Facebook page. In-between all the spider pictures they throw in random pictures of ladies in thongs. Well, sure. Why not? Know your audience.

Streamability: I guess? Once you’ve solved all the murders?

30 for 30: Jordan Rides the Bus
One of the most inexplicable moments in sports; when MJ, #23, His Airness, went to play for the Birmingham Barons. Seeing the man’s big loopy swing, only able to hit a ball occasionally on accident, made me realize you gotta stay in your lane. My personal lane is Netflix Streaming columns that go nowhere, and Jordan’s lane was brutally bullying his teammates into submission until they all became Steve Kerr. This would be a bit like if President Obama decides to become a chimney sweep after his presidency. Or maybe a maple syrup salesman. You’d kind of say “Hmmmm” as Rush bloviated about it.

Streamability: Well, I’d say so, if you like the sports.

In a World
A while back I talked about my Rhona Mitra obsession, and it was healthy to get that out there, at least according to my doctors. However, there’s another side to the coin, and that’s the Lake Bell side. She was the angel to Mitra’s devil:

But now she’s got herself a real live movie! That she directed! So we will support that, yes we will. Partly because lady directors are hard to find, and also because the trailer voice-over world contains multitudes.

Streamability: Ohhhhhh yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaah.
