Julia, episode 4, Petit Fours

Julia, the drama series about Julia Child, uses episode 4 to bring in more humor and an awareness of what Julia’s growing popularity would mean to Julia and Paul Child. This episode was directed by Erica Dunton. Instead of discussing the entire episode, I want to concentrate on Julia’s growing fame and her ahead-of-its-time marriage of equality.

The Politician, season 2, returned to Netflix with the same ambitious politician engaged in a run for office, much like season 1. All the back-stabbing, conniving, bald-faced lying that we saw in season 1 returned as well.
