Welcome to the first Stan update for the new year.


Just in time for the new reboot series, the classic Walker, Texas Ranger was a late-night staple for me and a lot of other people. A more innocent time before Chuck Norris got really into politics, it has to be said.

There are also two new series that you probably missed during this current Golden Age of Television™, Nick Nolte and the ageless Sela Ward in Graves, and a Benedict Cumberbatch mini-series (that's not Sherlock) in Patrick Melrose.

Movies, Documentaries:

Some more classic must-watch movies have just been added to Stan. David Fincher's underrated The Game will leave you just as paranoid as star Michael Douglas, as the boundaries between real life and LARPing becomes blurred. Michael Douglas also starts in the Rob Reiner/Aaron Sorkin political rom-com, The American President, presenting an alternate reality where the politically like-minded can pretend the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal didn't happen. This would pave way for Aaron Sorkin's "let's go to our happy place" alternative to the George W. Bush administration in The West Wing, another must-watch Stan Iconic Series.

A similar kind of fantasy can be enjoyed in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

For some great funny moments, make sure you check out The 40 Year-Old Virgin. And finally, the original film that spurred countless sequels, reboots and even a TV series, has to be not that bad, right? IMDb reviewers may disagree, but The Purge does have an interesting concept that has certainly not only captivated audiences but has joined the lexicon in the time since its 2013 release.
