Andy’s KSL-TV #WhatToWatch: Fictions and a couple of truth-is-more-fantastic-than-fiction options

Andy Farnsworth joinsKSL-TVto help audiences decipher #WhatToWatch for the weekend of May 13, 2022.  First, a new Star Trek series with a “strange” concept of just telling interesting sci-fi stories with likable characters in ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.’ A couple of truth-is-more-fantastic-than-fiction dramatic options include ‘The Offer,’ a weekly series that tells the story behind the making of ‘The Godfather;’ and ‘Operation Mincemeat,’ which tells an amazing and tense true story from World War II involving espionage and disinformation. Those who have been missing Mike Myers, he’s back with a comedy series called ‘The Pentaverate’ in which he plays no less than 8 different roles. For the kids, you have the animated movie ‘Marmaduke’ on Netflix based on a comic strip that no young kid has probably ever heard of, but it has a cute and funny dog in it.

Also, make sure you listen to the end of the clip to find out how you can win two seats for an early screening of the new ‘Downton Abbey’ Film next week at the Megaplex Theaters!
