This past weekend brought the final episode in the 42nd season of Saturday Night Live. The show was hosted by Dwayne Johnson, and while it was a solid collection of sketches, it didn’t feel like it quite had the pomp and circumstance that usually comes with the show’s season finales. But it was the last episode for a few cast members.

I’ve been very curious about Disney XD’s upcoming revival of DuckTales for close to a year now, ever since they revealed the show’s terrific art style and teased imagery that suggests an adventurous tone.

There are plenty of movies hitting the big screen this summer, but it looks like one of this season’s gems may not be in theaters. Netflix is releasing the indie comedy Staten Island Summer on the streaming service at the end of the month, and this looks like a hilarious coming-of-age comedy.
