Quibi Unearthed

All jokes aside, the truth is that while Quibi failed in spectacular fashion last year, there were actually a few diamonds in the rough within their catalog. Now that Roku has made much of the content available, I thought I’d re-share some picks from my time with the service. Enjoy!

Big Rad Wolf : Good night “sweet” prince, this was one of your best

Reno 911!: Glad to have the gang back

You Ain’t Got These: A really interesting look at sneaker culture

Last Looks: Great format and interesting stories

Dummy: Just like it says on the tin
