Let's Talk TV! (and movies)

I definitely don't have as much time as I anticipated to watch TV (hello online teaching and toddler life) BUT, ya'll know I love to get down with some TV time and what better time to stream and binge than a pandemic? 

Here's some of what I've been watching:

Bachelor Listen to Your Heart: I vowed I wouldn't watch this show. A Bachelor spin off, no thanks. But then covid happened and well...I'm a sucker for anything Chris Harrison is peddling, so here we are. I really love the covers they do on this show (Backstreet Boys? Gaga? So good). So is this as good as the actual Bachelor(ette)? After the past few seasons I'd say definitely. 

Little People Big World: I've been watching this show forever and while this season is different without Jeremy and Audrey, I like the storyline. It's not as cute as when the kids were younger, but it's still a show I tune into every week. 

Dead To Me: I binged season 1 of this show a while back and was so excited to see a new season pop up on Netflix. I'm about half way through season 2 now. This one is about 2 very unlikely friends and the secrets (and crimes) between them. It's a dark comedy and Christina Applegate is brilliant in it. 

Songland: This show fascinates me. If you haven't seen it, it's like The Voice (sort of), but it is song writers presenting their original songs to a famous artist and producers. There are 4 songs each episode and then 3 go "to the studio" to get professional advice and tweaking, then after the 3 songs are performed the artist chooses one to actually record. The way the producers can just make tiny changes and they way everyone collaborates---it's mindblowing. As someone with zero musical talent, this show impresses me every time I watch. 

Secrets of Skinwalker Ranch: Ok, I'm a bit embarrased to share this one because it is so weird and definitely not something I'd normally watch. We stumbled upon this History Channel show last week. This is a documentary series (but don't have high expectations with that, it is so so so cheesy) about a ranch in Utah (!) where paranormal activity occurs. The series follows doctors and scientists as they attempt to uncover what's going on there. Not a spoiler, but it's basically either a) an ancient Navajo curse or b) aliens. See? I told you it's bizaare. I'm blaming quarantine for this awful yet strangely addicting show. 

Workin' Moms: I LOVED seasons 1 and 2 of this show and I'm so sad to say I haven't even watched season 3 yet. I'm hoping to get to it during some of Hank's naps this weekend. This show is raw and hilarious. It's inappropriate and relatable. I hope season 3 is as good as the other two. 

Waco: AJ and I binged this one in a weekend. This is, obviously, NOT about Chip and Jo's silos, but is instead about David Karesh and the stand off between his group the Branch Davidians and the FBI. This was a fascinating watch. I really loved the storyline with the negotiator and what I was not expecting was to feel some sympathy for Karesh. The ending of this one is really tough to watch and as you work through the episodes the impending sense of doom is clear. This was not light by any means, but it was really riveting. 

Disney Singalongs: We sure did love both of these that were on. It's so fun and Hank loves them as much as I do. It's a fun thing during this time to relive some classics (and peep at singers houses....and see who can really sing live). 

Shark Tank: I've watched nearly every season of this show. I love it. I love supporting businesses that were on the show. I love all the clever ideas. This is just a fun entertaining watch. 

King of Queens: AJ and I both LOVE this show. And after our fave Arthur (Jerry Stiller) died this week, we decided to start way back at season 1. It's the perfect go to evening show and always makes us laugh. I just look at AJ and start singing the theme song and he knows what I want to watch, haha. "My eyes are getting weary, my back is getting tight, I'm sitting here in traffic on the Queensborough Bridge tonight...." 

Movies We've Watched----We've watched more than these, but these are the newer releases we've watched. 

Bombshell: I LOVED this movie. This one follows the true story of the sexual harrassment and toxic culture of Fox News. The 3 leads were excellent in this and I loved how this story was told. And can Charlize look any more like Megyn Kelly?! 

Just Mercy: I cannot say enough about this incredible movie. Warning: this one was difficult to watch at times, but it was truly excellent. If you're against the death penalty as I am, this will just reaffitm your beliefs. If not, watch it anyway, it will make you think. I love that this is a true story. It might be one of the best movies I've seen all year. 

The Invisible Man: Another movie I LOVED! This one has a totally cheesy premise of a woman being stalked by her mad scientist boyfriend. While it may appear like a Lifetime movie, this movie is so much more slick, well done, and suspenseful than anything like that. It's not exactly a horror movie, but it is creepy and twisty. 

Onward: So I had high hopes for this one and I liked it, but I didn't love it. We've seen it about a dozen times in the past few months and Hank loves his collection of Onward Happy Meal toys, but this one doesn't compare to other Pixar classics like Toy Story or Coco. It's cute and sweet, just not awesome. 

And of course you know we watched......



It was so ridiculously entertaining. And just what we all needed in these tough times. Nothing brings us together like a gay redneck meth head polygamist zookeeper, ya know? 

What are you watching??

Savor Your Sparkle,
