This episode has been anticipated for years!

On “Cowboys and Dreamers,” the reason for the animosity between Beth and Jamie is revealed just as Jamie and Kayce begin their new jobs.

Those positions reveal the true natures of the brothers, and Jamie’s tactics of intimidation pale considerably in the face of Kayce’s kindness and generosity. One brother is willing to give up himself to help others, and the other gives up others to help himself. Ugly business.

There is some stunning action to enjoy, as well as another scene between Beth and Roarke where her acid tongue prevails.

Here’s a clip showing what lies ahead between John and Rainwater.

8/7c Married at First Sight (Lifetime)

It’s time for the weddings but with one groom missing after disappearing during his bachelor party and a bride to be getting a mysterious message that reveals everything about her future husband, will everyone make it down the aisle?

Eullenia (Amazon Prime)

Eullenia is the first co-production between the UK and Thailand. This six-episode series is filmed in Thailand, and that alone is worth the watch.

Unfortunately, there are only three of the six episodes getting released today because of COVID-related delays, but it’s a very interesting show starring a lot of Thai talent.

This psychological thriller speaks the unspeakable behaviors of the top 0.001% of the world. Think people like Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein.

Since experts have estimated that up to 12% of CEOs exhibit psychopathic traits, we need to pay more attention to who is running our world.

Eullenia features one such man, Marcus Hammond, the CEO of a financial empire who relishes in the art of the perfect deal. His deals, though, aren’t for the squeamish.

It’s a super watchable show, and you’ll want to see it through to the end, whenever that might be. Check out a trailer now.

The competition has led to this moment: someone will be crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar and win a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame!
