Okay friends, I hate to ruin your week, but I really didn’t watch anything new this week to review. I’m actually playing catch-up on a few shows that I’ve been wanting to watch and/or been working on for a while. Plus, I had a 9-year-old little girl’s birthday party over the weekend, with 8 children at my house that night and about half the day on Sunday, so not much time for TV…or sanity for that matter.
I’m happy to share with you what I’m watching right now though and what I think about it. And this week I’d love your feedback/opinions on these shows. NO SPOILERS PLEASE! I’m not done with any of them yet.
- The Blacklist (Netflix)- So, I know I’m WAY behind on this one. This show debuted in 2013, but I never watched a single episode until less than a year ago. This is one that my wife and I both really like, but we seem to binge 3 or 4 episodes one day and then move on to something else for a month before picking it back up. I think we might be on Season 3 right now. So, long way to go, but we love it! Honestly, I think James Spader’s Raymond Reddington is one of TV’s all-time greatest characters. If you’ve not watched it, check it out.
- This Is Us (Hulu)- I know. I know. Some of you are taken aback that we’ve not watched this one yet. I bought the first two seasons on DVD on Black Friday about 2 years ago, but never started watching it until very recently. I watched 5 or 6 episodes this weekend, and OMG! What a great show. So much heart! So much love! Such great casting and great relationships among the cast. I can’t wait to get deeper into this one.
- The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu)- This is one that Christie and I really got into several months ago, but since we have such a crappy internet signal at our house, and we didn’t have Hulu until last week, we checked out the first 3 seasons from the amazing Saline County Library! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it a thousand more times- our local public library is one of this community’s greatest resources. I absolutely LOVE our local library. Anyway, back to The Handmaid’s Tale…holy crap! This show is wild! Scary is actually a better word for it, and not because it’s horror or anything. It’s just an incredibly tragic story that, in my opinion, could come to fruition pretty easily if a certain political faction got their way. I don’t want to dive down that rabbit hold here though because here we just talk about TV and movies. We keep it light. Y’all this show is legit though. It’s uncomfortable to watch, and I’ve been told by several of my female friends, “You think it’s uncomfortable. Try watching it as a woman.”
- Ted Lasso (Apple TV)- By far one of the best comedies on TV right now and may go down as an all-time great! Now I’m only 3 or 4 episodes in so far, so I don’t have too much to say other than WATCH IT!!! It’s so good!!!
Again, I’ve not finished with any of these, so please NO SPOLIERS, but I’d love to hear from you about what you think of these shows. And if you have something you think I should watch, let me know about it! Just no horror please. I don’t do horror.
