Analysis: ‘The Staircase’ adds drama to true crime

I binge it, support it and want more of it.

Let’s talk about it.

‘The staircase’

When Kathleen Peterson was found dead at the bottom of the stairs in the home in North Carolina she shared with her husband, Michael Peterson, in 2001, it started a mystery that people still talk about two decades later.

HBO Max now enters the conversation with an eight-episode drama. “The Staircase” shares the same title as the 2004 documentary that followed both the case and the trial of Michael Peterson, who became the prime suspect in his wife’s death.
Colin Firth and Toni Collette star as the couple. It’s worth it just to see if they cover ugleteorien.

The first three episodes are now streamed on HBO Max (which is owned by CNN’s parent company).

‘The Big Conn’

Apple TV + original

To stick to the theme, “The Big Conn” tells the true story of lawyer Eric C. Conn and one of the biggest cases of social security fraud in history – more than half a billion dollars big.

The series caused quite a stir during its world premiere in March at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. As an added bonus, there is an accompanying podcast with more interviews and information behind the scenes.

The show started streaming Friday on Apple TV +.

‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’

The Star Trek series loves a good prequel, and now there’s a new one.

“Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” gives us more of Captain Christopher Pike, Number One and Spock, played by Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn and Ethan Peck respectively.
The spin-off of “Star Trek: Discovery” has already a built-in fanbasebut it has not put a damper on the enthusiasm for it.

The new show is streamed on Paramount +.

Two things to listen to

Jack Harlow will perform on stage during the Revolve Festival at the Merv Griffin Estate on April 17 in La Quinta, California.

Jack Harlow takes a couple of friends with him to his second album.

Drake, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell and Lil Wayne all appear on the tracks of “Come Home the Kids Miss You”.

Not too shabby.

But again, Harlow has been aware that he wants to work with the best and be the best.

“We need more people in my generation trying to be the best, and you can not do that with just ear candy, vibe records,” he told Rolling Stone. “You have to get out and rock sometimes.”

The new album was released on Friday.

Sharon Van Etten will perform at the 2020 Sundance Film Festivals

“We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong,” the latest from Sharon Van Etten, is the album we probably need right now.

“I wanted to approach this release differently, to engage my fans in a conscious way, in an attempt to present the album as a collective work,” Van Etten said. “These ten songs are designed to be listened to in order, at once, so that a much greater story of hope, loss, longing and resilience can be told.”

This is the sixth album for the singer-songwriter, and it’s out now.

One thing to talk about

"The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes"  takes a closer look at the iconic death of the icon.

Hi Norma Jeane.

Marilyn Monroe, aka Norma Jeane Mortenson, is back in our consciousness for two reasons.

One is the fact that Kim Kardashian participated Met Gala dressed in the Monroe dress had worn when she famously sang “Happy Birthday” to then-President John F. Kennedy in 1962.
The other is the documentary “The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes”, which investigates the mysterious death of the icon. It is streamed on Netflix and is based on the persistent fascination with Monroe and her sudden death in 1962 due to a reported overdose of drugs.

Investigative journalist Anthony Summers shared his collection of 650 audio tapes from interviews with 1,000 people about Monroe.

The story itself is interesting, but Hollywood’s story is even more compelling – especially when it comes to Monroe.

Something to sip on

Speaking of the Met Gala and history, a reminder that Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Pete Davidson actually met for the first time at the Met Gala last year.

During a Podcast Appearance “Not skinny, but not thick“, Kardashian explained that Davidson first approached her at the 2021 fashion event.

She was estranged from husband Kanye West, and Davidson was single at the time.

“He knew I was hosting ‘SNL,’ but it was not announced yet,” Kardashian recalled. “So he came to me and we were talking about ‘SNL’.”

She said Davidson asked for her number, but since she was wearing gloves, she could not get into her phone. When she told “SNL” starring it, he said “Cool” and left.

That, of course, was not the end of their story. They came again when she appeared in his show, kissed during a sketch, and the rest is, as they say … see above.
