As PureWow’s VP of News and Entertainment, I have the good fortune of being exposed to a lot of streaming content news—whether the inside scoop on Netflix’s newest #1 show or behind-the-scenes deets on Hulu’s latest true-crime series.
And it also means I get to enjoy a ton of new shows and movies and call it “work.” (And full disclosure, sometimes it is work. With so many options on Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Paramount+, AppleTV+, Prime Video, Peacock and more, they really can’t all be winners.)
But now, my friends, I’ve come across a show that I really cannot recommend enough—and it was totally by accident.
On last week’s episode of Stream On, PureWow’s brand-new entertainment podcast for movie reviews, TV news, streaming hits and streaming misses, my co-host Rachel Gulmi challenged me to watch the first episode of AppleTV+’s murder mystery series, The Afterparty. I accepted her challenge, without realizing just how much I would enjoy it—or that I would binge all eight episodes of the series in only 24 hours. And believe me, that’s something I never ever do.
