Hey Gang!!! Welcome to the 20th episode of Sprinklez! The podcast dedicated to bringing you recommendations of the best shows, movies and podcasts on available on streaming services.
Today we start off is the Netflix original series, Babylon Berlin, with intensely beautiful sets, terrific acting and time appropriate costumes. This German television series is such a high calibre you think you're watching a long running movie (it is 16 episodes long, 45 min a piece). The story if set in between the two world wars in Berlin Germany where excess and poverty collide in a crescendo of intertwining plots. Recommended for those who love period pieces, dramas, thrillers but not for those triggers by violence, nudity or cruelty.
Secondly, I recommend the amazingly true story documented in this original podcast entitled S-Town by the producers of This American Life and Serial. It plays out like a Tennessee Williams play, or a Flannery O'Connor short story, but this one is all true. The podcast become about the eccentrically fascinating John B. McLemore and the small souther town he reluctantly called home, in addition to the cast of real life characters who make up his real and adoptive family.
Lastly, this week's Tasty Treat Sensation is Caffé Monster Energy Coffee, which is a delicious highly caffeinated beverage for those adults without medical concerns, pregnancy or the like.
