Exploring HBO's Lovecraft Country

Exploring HBO's Lovecraft Country

On this week's episode of Kickin' & Streamin' Podcast, Graham & Jocelyn discuss HBO's original series Lovecraft Country, starring Jonathan Majors, Jurnee Smollett, Michael K. Williams. Before delving into the topic, Graham & Jocelyn took a moment to express their sadness and shock at the sudden passing of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman. Jocelyn said when learned of Boseman's untimely death, she thought it was as a result of some car crash or another kind of tragic sudden death, but she then learned the actor 43 year-old had been secretly fighting colon cancer for almost four years, all the while going about his life and filming 9 different movies during that difficult time. Graham reflected on Boseman's illustrious, albeit short movie career and stated it was almost impossible to pinpoint a bad movie from the Anderson, South Carolina native. Rest In Peace, Chadwick Boseman!
Graham & Jocelyn began to discuss the series Lovecraft Country; which at the time of recording, had only aired two episodes. Jocelyn likes the series and says it was the kind of show she really enjoys. After giving a brief synopsis, Graham and Jocelyn chatted about the elements that makes the series so special, part of which includes the involvement of "Get Out" and "Us" director Jordan Peele, and Star Wars director JJ Abrams as co-producers.   If you like this episode, please rate us on your podcast player, and subscribe for future episodes.
