HAZBIN HOTEL SERIES REVIEW
We’re all sinners, there is no denying that. Some of us commit little sins, like rooting for the Dallas Cowboys or lying to our spouses about diet and exercise. Others commit inhuman atrocities like murder and hosting a podcast. Sure, there’s always deathbed repentance to get away in the nick of time, but what about the possibility of sudden death? Damned to hell you’ll be surrounded by demons, carnage, infernal flames, and catchy AF musical numbers. This is kinda like what the new Amazon Prime Video show Hazbin Hotel is like. The Princess of Hell, Charlie Morningstar (Erika Henningsen), is the daughter of Lucifer and Lilith. Her parents may be estranged but the residents of her hotel are even stranger. Demons, sinners, lowlifes, and monsters come to the hotel to rehabilitate and possibly be redeemed. You’ve got Sir Pentious (Alex Brightman) a steampunk inventor with egg minions. Angel Dust (Blake Roman) Hell’s hottest porn star. Vaggie (Stephanie Beatriz) Charlie’s girlfriend with a secret past, and a bartending, winged, alcoholic cat named Hust (Keith David) Why redemption after death? Hell’s population is growing ever higher so Heaven’s solution to keep the numbers down is to descend once a year and exterminate souls at random, led by the most self-righteous prick of them all, Adam (also Alex Brightman). Bradly, the rock’n front man, composes this damned episode with back-hellions Harmony and Jordan. They discuss the music, the punnery, and the spectacle of hell’s hottest YouTube pilot turned into a full streaming series.

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.
Harmoni Anderson (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews, Unstabletop Gaming)
Harmoni is a mermaid-haired, millennial, rum drinking, Section 31, Slytherin (who’s divorced J.K. Rowling) preschool/nursery teacher and multi genre geek who also loves all things film, tv, fashion, makeup, and an embarrassingly huge BTS stan. Like really embarrassing. As in, mention them and then sit back and watch the insanity. Harmoni likes being able to game and talk movies/TV with people that aren’t 3 feet tall or all that demanding of her. Plus she can curse at us and not get fired….so bonus!
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.
