Roku Picks of the Week

Worthwhile viewing available instantly on Netflix.

Parodies are rarely this meticulous. All the nuance of blaxploitation is captured: crappy film stock, boom mikes in the shot, wooden dialog...all intentional and at times, hilarious.

Silverman has built her reputation on being vulgar. The strength of this show, however, lies with the many subtle writing and acting choices in every episode. How sublime is this show? It now has the badge of honor worn by most hilarious television: cancelled after just three seasons.
