Two of the Best Shows on TV Right Now Are On…CBS All Access

I know it's not fun to pay to watch CBS programming digitally, but these two shows are definitely worth the hassle. The Good Wife spinoff The Good Fight starring Christine Baranski just keeps on getting better and better, while Star Trek: Discovery's second season outdoes itself with every episode. What I love about both these shows are that they boldly go where no TV production has ever gone before. They're not just another lawyer show and space show. Get the week free trial and you'll see what I mean. Star Trek Discovery The Good Fight  

The Latest Netflix Interactive Series “You vs. Wild” Looks Really Cool!

I admit I'm not a fan of the Netflix Black Mirror interactive episode called Bandersnatch, but You vs. Wild looks way better. Starring hunky survival expert Bear Grylls, viewers join him on exciting adventures all over the world. Dense jungles, towering mountains, brutal deserts, and mysterious forests await, with tough decisions around every corner. In this groundbreaking interactive adventure series, you make all the decisions and whether or not Bear succeeds or fails is totally up to you.

Says Grylls: "I'm so proud to deliver this first-of-its-kind live-action interactive series, really giving viewers an all access pass to explore the world and its landscapes in my boots. The stakes are high in this one!" Look for it to will debut on Netflix April 10.

The Wages of Sin — The Price Lori Loughlin Pays for College Entrance Scamming

First the Hallmark Channel dropped her, now Lori Loughlin has been cut from the final season of Fuller House on Netflix.
Crown Media said in a Thursday afternoon statement, “We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations. We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin, including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third-party production.”
Meanwhile, her daughters are dropping out of USC because "they’re afraid of being bullied over the massive college admissions scam," according to Page 6. I thought they might be dropping out because they got in illegally. Olivia Jade — who said last year she didn’t “really care about school” but wanted the “experience” of “partying” — was aboard the yacht of a USC board of trustees member on spring break when her mom was charged in the scheme Tuesday.

If you check to or more of the items on this list, it might be time to get help. Find it on Realtor.com. And tune into Hoarders Tuesday nights at 8:00 pm.
