If you didn’t spend your childhood in front of the TV waiting for the biggest WWE stars to show up, then there is a show that might work like magic during this lockdown. We are talking about the The Big Show Show that’s streaming on Netflix.
So, Netflix and WWE have collaborated for this one. The show stars seven-time WWE World Champion Big Show aka Paul Wight, the super famous wrestler who has fictionalised his own character in the show and will be seen dealing with his retired life alongside his family members. Well, one has to appreciate the ease with which Paul Wight works his charm in front of the camera – after all it’s been almost 25 years- surely facing the camera comes naturally to him!
The show has situational humour and strikes the right notes between conflict and challenge, albeit in a sitcom way. Keeping in mind the fan-following of the Big Show and his pop-culture influence, it has something that every family would connect with.
The Big Show Show is a family sitcom that focuses on kids and hence the show doesn't need to enter at all on our beep meter. It’s a show that you can definitely sit and watch with your family in times of a lockdown!
Not just Paul Wight, this show also stars a few other WWE legends like Mark Henry, Rikishi and Mick Foley in cameos. Apart from them, Allison Munn does full justice to her role, even though the character is a not fully fleshed out.
The script could have packed a bit more punch, but it’s just the start and the second season will likely be more fun. Our verdict for The Big Show Show is Bingeworthy!
Well, since the lockdown has been extended by a few more weeks, here are 3 new show recommendations for you- The Raikar Case on Voot, Tales From The Loop on Amazon Prime Videos and StarBeam on Netflix.
