Baby, Blockbuster is back! This time as a Netflix sitcom, the streamer was able to finish the story that began with them as partners by driving a stake into the heart of their former rival.
The program, which stars Melissa Fumero from Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Randall Park from Fresh off the Boat, is said to be the ideal fit for fans of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Happy Endings, and Superstore. Given that Vanessa Ramos, David Caspe, and Jackie Clarke all contributed to one or more of those shows over the years, it seems appropriate.
“Timmy and his crew quickly come to realise that being home to the final Blockbuster might actually be precisely what their community needs to revive the interpersonal relationships they lost to the digital age.” “Additionally, Eliza who recently returned to work for him, who has been his longtime crush, is unexpectedly reunited with him. Will this conflict over preserving the past provide Timmy with the motivation he needs to enter the present? His staff can only wish that.”
Olga Merediz, who is best known to B99 fans as Rosa Diaz’s mother, completes the cast as Connie. J.B. Smoove, of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Pootie Tang fame, recreates that intensity here as the “blunt mother figure.”
Even though it’s doubtful, there’s something to look forward to on Thursday, Nov. 3, 2022, when the programme eventually airs. Get ready for a nostalgia crash that just might bring back a few memories.
