Blockbuster is back! This is the Blockbuster. Time, a Netflix sitcomThis allows the streamer to place the stake in their former competitor’s heart and close the loop on the tale that began with them as friends. Instead of Blockbuster offers to partner with youWe’re creating a workplace sitcom to celebrate the fictional final Blockbuster location that is still in operation today, and we’re taking over streaming.
Starring Randall Park Fresh from the BoatMelissa Fumero Brooklyn Nine-NineThe show, according to reports, is a great fit for fans who love shows such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Happy Endings Superstore. This is fitting because Vanessa Ramos and David Caspe as well as Jackie Clarke were involved in at least one of those shows throughout the years.
Park is Timmy the manager at the very last Blockbuster Store in America. He needs to be creative and keep his store afloat so he can keep friends employed. “Timmy and his staff quickly come to realize that being home to the last Blockbuster might actually be exactly what their community needs to rekindle the human connections they lost to the digital age,”The show’s logline is as follows. ” It also unexpectedly reunites him with his long-time crush Eliza [Fumero], who’s recently come back to work for him. Will this battle to preserve the past be the push Timmy needs to step into the present? His employees can only hope so.”
This sounds like the ideal recipe for sitcom hijinks with a cast to guide the stories along. However, physical media may not be around for long enough.
The cast includes J.B. Smoove, of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Pootie Tan fame, Olga Merediz (best known to B99 fans for Rosa Diaz’s mom), replicating that energy here in Connie “blunt mother figure.”
Tyler Alvarez plays Carlos, Madeleine Arthur portrays Hannah, Kamaia fairburn portrays Kayla, and there are a few new faces. All we have to do is find out that Blockbuster was a Severance-like trap operated by Will Arnett, the sadistic new owner. Hire David Lynch to direct, tighten up the script like a drummer and watch the cash pour in.
Although it’s unlikely, this is something to look forward too on Thursday, Nov. 3rd 2022 when the show finally premieres. You can expect a nostalgia binge that might actually bring back some memories. Fans might cry if they use a Pokemon Snap-photo printer.
