Some weeks are for reading. And some weeks are for watching...depending on the level of crap I've had to deal with that week. 😝 Work has been supremely rough since the beginning of the year, but especially in the last month or so with our office moving, so I've been relaxing with Netflix a lot more often these days. But I've watched some pretty good shows and I'm anticipating even more...


Recently Watched:

Sabrina, Part 2



Betrayal. Heartbreak. New loves. An incubus. THE Dorian Grey. This second part of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina had it all. And it did not pull punches. There's a million things I want to comment on, but seeing as how it's only been out a week, I'll just have to wait for my friends to catch up so we can discuss. Hurry up, witches...I have thoughts!


The Order



My younger sister conned me into watching this one day when she was at my house, and it was interesting enough that I watched another episode after she'd left. I didn't binge it all in one go, but I finished pretty quickly, which is really saying something because I usually prioritze reading over shows. Usually, I'm here for the romance, but with this series, that's the least of my concerns. I'm all about the magic and the werewolves and these secret societies they're all apart of. And after that crazy cliffhanger ending, I can't not watch the next season. It reminds me of The Vampire Diaries, except a lot more werewolves, a little more grown up, a bit less drama, and a little less pretty.


The Highwaymen



This was technically my hubby's pick one night, but I've always been fascinated by the crime/murder spree of one Bonnie and Clyde, especially since they were from my neck of the woods. I loved that this movie didn't glorify the duo the way so many before this have, although it did depict just how much they'd won over public opinion in their heyday. Instead, this film focuses on the soon-to-be out to pasture lawmen who successfully hunted them down and ended their reign of terror. I loved the pacing and I loved Costner and Harrelson as the old guys who just couldn't catch a break...until they did, using their old, tried and true methods of detective work.



Shows/Movies I Can't Wait For More Of:

Stranger Things, season 3



So, I didn't watch when the first season arrived to great acclaim. I didn't even start watching when the second season dropped. But one bored night, my family sat down and started watching and we couldn't get enough. We'd watch a couple episodes every chance we got, and now we've been chomping at the bit for season 3. So awesome that it releases on what basically amounts to a 4-day weekend so we can binge it. I can't wait to see what fresh hell awaits those kids!


TATBILB Sequel



This is my favorite series by Jenny Han. They're just so delightfully cute! I loved the first movie and I think my daughter has seen it three or four times already. To say that we're ready for more is an understatement. I think I'll try to get Katie to read the books before the sequel releases, though. That way she knows what she's getting herself into. 😉


iZombie, season 5



There's no trailer for season 5, but it's set to start on May 2nd, so I'll take what I can get since this is the final season. Waaaahhhh. I love this show. I didn't expect to; my sister and friends tried to convince me I'd love it. It's directed by Rob Thomas of Veronica Mars, they said. It's funny, they said. And it is. It's perfect for while I wait for new episodes of VM on Hulu, hopefully this year.


Veronica Mars, revival



Okay, so I don't know how I've never seen that before, but it makes me even sadder that VM got cancelled when it did. And also even more ecstatic that it's gotten not one but two second chances. I can't wait to binge the first three seasons, re-watch the movie, and re-read the two novels. I hope this releases on Hulu sooner rather than later...and that it's not just a one-off!

ETA: Update, Marshmallows! It'll be released on July 26th!!!!!!!!



Younger, season 6



FINALLY. Some news on season 6...beyond that the show isn't moving to Paramount after all. Sabrina got me into this show and I'll be forever grateful. It's about a 40-something woman who pretends to be in her late 20s in order to get a job in the publishing world...once her world before she took time off to be a mom and wife...and all the trials and tribulations that come with that farse. I just love the whole dynamic...with publishing, with friends, and with romance. #TeamJosh



So, what have you been watching recently? Anything you can't wait to see or any recommendations based on what I'm watching...or soon to watch?
