Genre: Post-apocalyptic satire, adult animated comedy

Director: Robert Carlock and Sam Means, the creators of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,

Mulligan 2- Why to Watch

Prepare yourself for more humor (and existential terror) in the barren wasteland that is Mulligan: Part 2. President Mulligan and his motley crew of survivors must deal with the frightening and humorous realities of reconstructing civilization on a destroyed alien planet in this adult animated comedy, which continues where Part 1 left off.

Imagine a world without proper movies (which are now essentially elaborate plays), plumbing, or even good food. President Mulligan’s battles to steer this dysfunctional group are taking place against this backdrop. Not all of it is post-apocalyptic blues, though. The show reminds us of humanity’s resiliency even in the face of absurdity by deftly fusing dark humor with sincere moments of connection.

Jurrasic World (Chaos Theory): Why to Watch

Following the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the exciting new adventure “Jurassic World: Chaos Theory” transports us back in time. The cherished “Camp Cretaceous” gang—Darius, Brooklynn, Kenji, Bex, and Sammy—returns in this animated series to help us navigate a future in which dinosaurs are no longer restricted to theme parks.

Netflix New Releases This weekend- May 25


Genre: Stand-up Comedy, Coming-of-Age

Director: (Presumably) Franco Escamilla himself (based on similar stand-up specials)

Starcast: Franco Escamilla (as himself)

Mood: Hilarious, Self-deprecating, Nostalgic

Franco Escamilla: Ladies’ Man- Why to Watch

Get ready to laugh hysterically at Franco Escamilla’s newest stand-up special, “Franco Escamilla: Ladies’ Man.” Taking center stage, the self-described ladies’ man recounts amusing anecdotes of his embarrassing adolescent years, including foolish attempts at impressing girls and unsuccessful romantic relationships.

Here, Escamilla’s distinct brand of comedy is clearly evident. He blends realistic observations about awkward teenage moments and the challenges of puberty with self-deprecating humor. Anticipate stories about awkward meetings with rock stars, terribly prolonged first kisses, and embarrassing crushes—yep, you read it right—that will make you laugh and cringe.

However, “Ladies’ Man” is more than simply a cheap joke. There’s a hint of yearning for a bygone era beneath the surface. The universal experiences of teenage crushes, heartbreak, and the pursuit of self-discovery are brought to light by Escamilla’s stories.
