The hurricanes have come and gone and it's time to reap the summer's harvest. So if your neighbors haven't brought you tomatoes and zucchinis yet what's that matter with them? Hollywood has some offerings for you as well and luckily we'll tell you what's worth your time. First we have "Only Murders in the Building." It's a new Hulu series starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez as three strangers who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves caught up in one. It's very New Yorky, is it fun? Bill Bregoli (not a native New Yorker so you can trust him) will tell you. Neil tells us about the proliferation of TV game shows. We've also got Paul Schrader's new drama "The Card Counter." Starring Oscar Isaac and Willem Dafoe it's a revenge thriller that tells the story of an ex-military interrogator turned gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past. Bill Also watched "Vacation Friends." It's a raunchy comedy about a couple who meet up with another couple while on vacation in Mexico, but their friendship takes an awkward turn when they get back home. Bill McCuddy tells us about "Stillwater" which stars Matt Damon as a father who travels from Oklahoma to France to help his estranged daughter, who is in prison for a murder she claims she didn't commit. Bill M also fills us in on the series "Hit & Run." We also have stories to tell about the late legend Ed Asner. And as always, we're brought to you by The Accutron Show" so listen in!
