Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj

“Drug Pricing”
New episodes Sunday
On Netflix

Hasan Minhaj is taking on Big Pharma this week and we hope they’ve got patents for all the #burn treatments they’re going to need. He breaks down the sickening price hikes of drugs in recent years by taking us deep into the history of medicine via some weird science (and a, um, phallic pancreas. Yup). It’s all to ask: Why is your health given a price? When Ghostface Killah is serving up more logic than the medical system you know there’s a problem. If you’ve ever been given a headache over why your insurance bills are so high and confusing, Minhaj will give you the Advil you need in the form of easy, joke-filled information—and it won’t cost you any more than the price of your Netflix subscription.

Stream new episodes of Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj
every Sunday on Netflix.

From Netflix:
Hasan examines the major players in America’s drug industry, and how the prices of life-saving medications like insulin continue to rise unabated.

**idobi rated: ❤️❤️**

We’re finally getting an episode centered on the story of Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson). This is a wonderful thing…but we’re a little scared at what heartbreak this flashback will entail simply due to the nature of This Is Us. We’ll get more additions to the family tree along with more reasons why Beth needs to follow her dreams. Seeing her as a little girl dreaming of being a ballet dancer will break your heart into a million pieces (but don’t lose hope—remember in the flash-forward storyline we saw Beth teaching at a dance studio?). Getting to see the journey from past to present with a look to the future is going to be poignant, especially with such a strong and beloved character.

New episodes of This Is Us air every Tuesday, only on NBC.

From NBC:
Beth’s trip home to care for her mother sparks an unexpected realization.

**idobi rated: ❤️❤️**

Valentine’s Day is truly #over, ’cause dating sucks and Zoey (Yara Shahidi) is not messing around this week. When Luca’s (Luka Sabbat) work is exhibited at the CalU Arts Fair, it turns out Zoey is not his only muse…he’s got an ex he can’t quit putting on display. Uh oh. Fire up the squad, Zo & co. have got some major digging into Luca’s past to do. Good thing Ana (Francia Raisa) is ready to organize them all like some expert military operation. Seriously, professional detectives could learn from these kids. With every frenzied google search you’ll be left wondering: How does Grown-ish continue to nail the college experience? With every episode Grown-ish proves the writers know us better than we know ourselves (they probably stalked our Instagram for the DL).

New episodes of Grown-ish debut on Freeform every Wednesday.

From Freeform:
When Zoey sees that Luca’s exhibit at the CalU Arts Fair dominantly features one of his ex-girlfriends, it sends her into a spiral of wanting to know more about his past. Nomi takes Professor Hewson’s advice and tries to learn more about the queer community on campus.

Some people might call the Doom Patrol a group of losers but actually they’re winners who’ve lost…we’re not being hyperbolic here…EVERYTHING. And this week the blows keep coming. Good thing Cyborg (Joivan Wade) shows up to show them what a hero looks like. Otherwise that giant swirling breach at the edge of the universe might be much worse (and it’s already pretty big). Watch what happens when a real group of misfits try to put the band together. Trust us, it’ll make you giggle. This one is a Donkey Kick.

Catch new episodes of Doom Patrol every Friday on DC Universe.

From DC Universe:
Following Mr. Nobody’s capture of Niles Caulder and the destruction of Cloverton Ohio, The Doom Patrol investigate the mysterious albino donkey and discover it is a door to another universe, one where Mr. Nobody is in control.
