When the Netflix Original Series BEAT BUGS made its debut in 2016, families were quickly immersed in a vibrant new world inspired by the timeless music of THE BEATLES.  Following the adventures of five best friends -- Jay, Kumi, Crick, Buzz and Walter -- who band together to discover life's most important lessons in an overgrown suburban backyard -- Beat Bugs encourages lessons of friendship and problem-solving while introducing a new generation to some of the greatest songs of all-time. Mixing classic and contemporary, here The Beatles' music is performed by an all-star line-up of artists including Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, Pink, Robbie Williams, Sia, Rod Stewart, Regina Spektor, James Corden, and late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. With two seasons already streaming in full on Netflix, the Beat Bugs adventures are just getting started...

It seems like a lifetime ago that JIMMY FALLON released his first comedy album, THE BATHROOM WALL. Actually, it's been a decade since I purchased that album (I still have it), and now Fallon is finally getting around to album number two. The difference this time around is that 2012 Fallon is the host of LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, a successful late night television program that you've probably watched on occasion. Last time, 2002 Fallon was a Saturday Night Live cast member known for breaking out the acoustic guitar for some musical humor. Instead of prepping an album's worth of new studio tracks, BLOW YOUR PANTS OFF is musical comedy taken directly from his namesake show. Does it deliver? That depends on how much you dig the source material.
