Jett, with Carla Gugino, brings action and excitement

Jett is an action thriller starring Carla Gugino as a master thief. After a stint in prison, she finds herself in a dangerous situation. The series was made for Cinemax but is now available on HBO Max. Season 1 ended just before the pandemic hit, and the series has not been renewed for a second season.

Virgin River, season 3, and we’re all in love

This was my least favorite season of the Netflix drama, simply because it felt so emotionally manipulative that you had to cry buckets to get through it.
