So, of course, I watched all of Bridgerton.
I don’t love it as much as the first season – I mean, once you have the solid romance-novel plot – there are not a lot in the way of surprises. But I still like it a lot. If nothing else, the costumes (and wigs) are to die for.
And I’ve been working through Welcome to Flatch, which I find appealing, having grown up in a small mid-West town – maybe not as doofy as Flatch, but that feeling of being stuck in a life you don’t know what to do with is familiar. And the characters are hilarious and poignant. The show is shot in the same mockumentary style as The Office; and while scripted, still gives off the flavor of improv like a Christopher Guest movie (not as good as Christopher Guest, of course – but just a taste).
And finally, I just finished the long-awaited most recent season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I love the comedy, I love the characters – but, Lord, I get tired of watching Midge step in it over and over again. She’s supposed to be a smart woman; so it’s difficult to see a character make the same mistakes without learning a thing. That’s when you start to lose me.
Oh and my husband and I just finished Killing Eve. What a beautifully written and acted show that was. We will miss the adventures of Eve and Villanelle (I don’t suppose there’d be a Christmas Special in the offing).
So now, I’ll go back to Sens8 – which is beautiful and bizarre and wonderful and disturbing to a degree that I can’t watch too much at a time.
So what you watching and/or what are your thoughts on what I’ve been watching?
