This is going to be a quick and dirty write-up to recommend Amazon’s latest, Hunters. Executive produced by Academy Award–winner Jordan Peele and led by legendary Academy Award–winner Al Pacino, Hunters follows a diverse band of Nazi hunters living in 1977 New York City. The Hunters, as they’re known, have discovered that hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.

I’m not a fan of period pieces (shows/books/movies set in the past), but given the story line and the cast, I’ll probably check this one out. It also stars Logan Lerman (Jack & Bobby), Jerrika Hinton (Grey’s Anatomy, Here and Now), Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother, Rise), Tiffany Boone (The Chi, Little Fires Everywhere), Greg Austin (Class), Louis Ozawa Changchien ( Matador, The Miraculous Year), Saul Rubinek (Warehouse 13, Blind Justice, Nero Wolfe), Dylan Baker (The Big Time, Damages, I’m Dying Up Here), Becky Ann Baker (Freaks and Geeks), Lena Olin (Alias, Welcome to Sweden), James Le Gros (True Fiction), Jeannie Berlin (The Night Of), and Ebony Obsidian (Wu-Tang: An American Saga, Sistas), as well as Henry Hunter Hall, Jonno Davies, Josh Mostel, Julissa Bermudez, Kate Mulvaney, Miles G. Jackson, and Caleb Emery.

The entire first season came out overnight last night on Amazon, so check it out now!

I’ll also be watching Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector & Hawaii Five-0.

Last week was an action-packed second-to-last episode of the first season of Harley Quinn. It started with the gang all fighting giant killer trees who were ravaging the public park where Gotham Jazzfest was supposed to occur. Ivy couldn’t control the trees because they were magically generated by water that Queen Fables cast a spell on. Batman had to take on Scarecrow elsewhere, so Commissioner Gordon was tasked with dealing with the trees. The Justice League showed up and soundly whomped the trees, but Queen Fables made her appearance and trapped the heroes in her fairy tale book. She then used a magic beanstalk to banish the crew to certain death with the giant in the castle in the clouds. Ivy called Kiteman for help, and Harley finally figured out those two were dating.

Kiteman saved the day by throwing Siracha in the giant’s eye, and they all sailed back down to earth. Commissioner Gordon drove a tank into the park, but Harley commandeered it. Then Joker made his appearance, bursting through the old Legion of Doom building with an enormous tower that came from underground. We learned Fables and Joker had teamed up, and she summoned more killer trees. Ivy drank the water that was animating the trees and grew to giant size herself. She then easily kicked their asses. When all threats were resolved, Joker shot an enormous flagpole through giant Ivy’s chest, apparently killing her. WTAF!?!?! Is Ivy really dead? I hope the hell not! But they ended on a cliffhanger so I gotta watch today!

On today’s episode, “The Final Joke,” Harley has her final showdown with the Joker, when [spoilers] [spoil] [spoilers]. Will they [spoiler]? Maybe. But you can bet they [spoiler]!

Hope you didn’t miss it when it aired early this morning at 9AM/8AMc. If you did, go watch now on DC Universe!

I’ll also be watching Star Wars: Clone Wars.
