The new show is your one-stop-shop for discovering the best things to watch at home and in theaters – all in around six minutes. Each weekday, Andre and Maude will give you a highly curated breakdown of what you should be watching right now, dive deep into a buzzy movie or show everyone’s talking about, and leave you with their personal Fresh Picks to keep those watchlists full.

We quizzed Andre to give you a little taste of his movie and TV tastes.

What was the first movie you saw in theaters?

“First movie I saw in theaters by myself is Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I definitely had seen movies in theaters before that with parents or friends, but that was the first time I wanted to see one so bad that I walked to the theater all by myself to make it happen. And I’m glad I did because it’s still one of my favorites of all-time.”

What movie do you think should have won Best Picture but never did?

“I would have loved to see Get Out win Best Picture. That film is near-perfect for me! Jordan Peele creates a horror movie with modern social commentary on race, plus humor, plus all the hidden clues that you notice after a couple more viewings. And one of the best theater experiences I’ve had in a while.”

Tell us a TV series you’d normally never admit you love.

“I own up to every TV show I’ve watched… even Riverdale, ha. That being said: Power Rangers! Even though I haven’t seen every episode ever, I obsessed over Mighty Morphin’. It fascinates me that this wild concept from 1993 not only became a phenomenon but has continued for over 25 years with new casts and themes each season. Plus, there’s movies, a new and really good comic book series, and very passionate fans of all ages. All from teenagers in suits fighting rubber-suited monsters with robot Zords using Japanese Super Sentai footage. I love it! It’s Morphin’ Time!

What’s a Rotten movie you love?

Super Mario Bros. I saw it in the theater three times and have seen it many more times on VHS and DVD. They turned one of the greatest video games of all-time into a family-friendly Blade Runner starring Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo as brothers and Dennis Hopper as a germaphobic King Koopa? Genius! The more it has nothing to do with the video game, the more I unapologetically love it! It’s almost unreal! I’ll ‘Trust the Fungus’ anytime. Oh, and Cats. Definitely Cats.”

Marvel or DC?

“Both. So over this argument. You can like both. Also, who cares when I have the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie?”

Friends or The Office?

“Now this I will fight. The Office. No contest. What’s Friends?”

We quizzed Maude to give you a little taste of her movie and TV tastes.

What was the first movie you saw in theaters?

The Little Mermaid. I loved the movie so much, I still love it as much today. The movie had a profound impact on me, from taking up singing and joining the Australian Youth Choir as a kid, to having a very specific type when it comes to men: Helllooooo, Prince Eric. Hey! He’s a dog person, OK!?”

What movie do you think should have won Best Picture but never did?

Lost in Translation from the 2003 Academy Awards. I’m a massive nerd, so the fact that it lost to Lord of the Rings: Return of the King was spectacular, but my goodness, Lost in Translation is practically a perfect movie. The unusual but endearing concept, the effortless feeling of the writing, the wonderful chemistry between Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray – this was the superior film of that year to me.”

Tell us a TV series you’d normally never admit you love.

The Circle and even Love is Blind. I don’t usually like reality TV at all! But there’s something about these that focus on it being a ‘social experiment’ that has me hooked. The first episode of The Circle I felt utterly annoyed by every single person. By the end of the series – which came for me a mere 24 hours later! – I would have jumped in front of a bullet for them. That, my friend, is great TV.”

What’s a Rotten movie you love?

Meet Joe Black. That was peak Brad Pitt for me. The concept is ridiculous, but for me, it’s a powerful love story which also tackles strong family themes. I can watch Brad Pitt eat peanut butter off a spoon all day. We were also gifted with the gif where he walks across the street and gets tossed between cars like a rag doll.”

Marvel or DC?

“True to my nerdom, this is a very loaded question and such a broad stroke that cannot merely be answered with one or the other. TV Shows? DC. Movies? Marvel. Comics? DC. Characters? Marvel. Do not make me choose.”

Friends or The Office?

Friends! The Office pioneered the shaky cam and my nausea never recovered. Friends had forever quotable moments and such distinct characters that became your family.”


Fresh Daily premieres April 6. New episodes drop weekdays at 6.30am ET / 3.30am PT. Quibi is offering a 90-day free trial to those who sign up between now and April 20.
