THE AFTERPARTY SERIES REVIEW
High school reunions can be tricky. Are you there for lost love? To show everyone you’re not the loser they thought you were back then? Relive your glory days? Commit revengeful murder on a now-famous classmate? Well, all that is what brings together the star-studded cast of Apple TV’s murder mystery comedy, The Afterparty. Created by Chris Miller, this millennial whodunnit centers on the death of a pop star, Xavier (Dave Franco) who is found dead at the afterparty of his high school reunion. Tiffany Haddish leads the cast as Detective Danner who interviews each guest episode by episode, with each retelling of the night’s events being done in a whole different genre. Sam Richardson, Ben Schwartz, Zoë Chao, Ilana Glazer, Ike Barinholtz, and Jamie Demetriou round out the stacked cast to find out who was voted Most Likely to Commit Homicide. Investigating this are Bradley, Jordan, and Dogget who uncover if this mystery is worth the investment or if there’s a more interesting party you should go to.

Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)
Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Throughout the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.
Jordan Cobb (Screener Squad)
Born with a comic book in one hand, a camera in the other, and in front of the television as WrestleMania played out, Jordan Worth Cobb was thus birthed into this crazy world. A Digital Filmmaking major from the University of Central Arkansas, Jordan has done it all in film from directing, writing, editing, and producing in addition to skills involved in film and TV criticism, journalism, and years of podcasting experience. On any given day, her ADHD riddled brain bounces focus from film to pro wrestling to TV to superheroes to noir to video games to espionage and yes, even to sports. She played little league you know. For more of this eccentric nerd, you can follow her on Twitter here and read her original writings on Deepest Corners of My Notebook.
Danny Dogget (Screener Squad)
Hey persons, it’s your favorite canine Dogget! As many of you know, I don’t identify as a critic as much as a classy shock jock. That being said, I do my best to give all of you a well-balanced review filled with my true opinions and hopefully a few laughs. You can occasionally find me on other persons podcast like Mission Impodible (that’ll be 10 dollars Nathan). For the most part, you can find me doing reviews on Oneofus.net.
