A favorite police drama, Blue Lights, is available to watch on Britbox, and season 2 just dropped!

If you enjoyed Blue Lights season 1 on Britbox, you can now catch more episodes on the service. About the series, co-creator Adam Patterson says, “We felt like a cop show was a really interesting and a brilliant vehicle to look at any aspect of society. You can literally go anywhere! So if you want to tell a story about a place, but more importantly about really interesting characters, the cops are a brilliant Trojan horse to go into any aspect of the city. So that’s why it really works for us.”

We’re on the same team. ‘But that wasn’t the case. That’s not what it felt like,’ Nichols said.”

Long absent actor-turned-entrepreneur Jessica Alba returns to a starring role in Trigger Warning, but was it worth the wait?

Trigger Warning has all the makings of a shrewd contemporary Western, as well as housing career-defining opportunities for two women spotlighting their formidable talents… Yet the filmmakers frustratingly fail to dig into the familiar territory they’re traversing. What should serve as a warm welcome for Mouly Surya (helming her first English-language picture) and a kick-ass welcome back to lead roles for star Jessica Alba turns into a congealed mess of squandered potential.”

Stranger Things season 5 is “out of control,” according to its newest star, Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays the big bad Vecna.

“Even Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) says the final season of Netflix hit Stranger Things is totally ‘bonkers…’ Season 5 has already been teased to rival blockbuster films in terms of episode length, cost, and scale. Still, the Stranger Things universe is expanding so rapidly it can’t be contained to the series.”
