#SetTheVCR for Sunday December 16, 2018 to Saturday December 22, 2018

Hey not sure what to watch this week on the small screen? No worries #SetTheVCR is here to help you make some of those decisions easier. Sure you have your old favourites on standby that never change. But maybe you are looking to freshen it up this week. If that’s the case then let us help you. All times are Eastern Standard Time so please adjust for your time zone.

This week is bookended by the American Dream and the subtle darkness of capitalism. We start strong with Bruce Springsteen’s Netflix special (so worth seeing…his Broadway show is sublime) and then…conclude with a Suge Knight documentary. On the surface it appears like Suge and Bruce are 2 different individuals but really they’re just trying to survive as best as they know how. America isn’t easy.
