Welcome to the sixth edition of The Cord Cutter Podcast! This week, our hosts bring in CinemaBlend contributor Mike Reyes to talk the Amazon original Comrade Detective and get into the nuts and bolts of Amazon's streaming service. Amazon Prime has a lot of benefits, and chief among those is their video streaming. There are a wide variety of movies and television shows available to stream, many are free to Prime subscribers, including the service's original TV programs.
Speaking of those original programs, Comrade Detective recently hit the service and it's got one of the more interesting concepts you've probably ever heard of. Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt lend their voices to the show as a pair of police detectives trying to track down a murderer in 1980s Romania. The show is billed as a real Romanian series from the period that's been remastered and dubbed into English, and that just makes this comedy/drama even weirder. So, read on to get the lowdown on this week's podcast and then listen for yourself above!
