Ever fallen head over heels for a TV show you initially had zero interest in? That’s exactly what happened to me with “The Last of Us” on Max. Despite my initial ignorance of its video game origins, the show’s pandemic parallels and gripping storyline kept me glued to the screen. We’ll also talk about the never-ending confusion between HBO and MAX, my gaming aversion, and the nostalgic joy of 80s music, all while managing the daily grind of pool and hot tub maintenance and an ever-growing list of streaming subscriptions.

Plus: we dive into the historical drama “Mary and George” on Starz, where Julianne Moore delivers a mesmerizing performance. We can’t help but ponder the trend of explicit content in historical fiction, drawing a curious comparison to shows like “Bridgerton.” And of course, we spotlight Pedro Pascal, the man of the moment with roles in “The Mandalorian,” “Narcos,” “Game of Thrones,” and his stellar turn in “The Last of Us.” From his “slutty daddy” persona to the explosion of merchandise inspired by his characters, Pascal is undeniably Hollywood’s current “it” guy.

Also: We also explore the rich tapestry of the historical drama “Franklin” with Michael Douglas, unpacking its romance, historical accuracy, and top-notch production values. Then, we touch on the latest controversies surrounding Diddy, and share our mixed feelings on the enduring saga of “Grey’s Anatomy.” We delve into the hurdles of obtaining diabetes meds, speculate on the wealth of “Grey’s” cast members, and pay a heartfelt tribute to Marianne Robinson, Michelle Obama’s mother, with a special musical homage. This episode is bursting with TV show insights, celebrity gossip, and touching tributes—don’t miss it!
