Rambling TV: What I watched in March

I'm once again going to attempt to keep a semi regular schedule talking about what I watched on TV. I plan on posting at the end of each month. Some of these shows started before March but since I finished them up this month, I'll throw them in here too. Here's what I've been watching on the small screen.

I Am The Night (TNT)

This started in January and it caught my eye because it starred Chris Pine and was slightly related to the Black Dahlia case. Overall, it was fine. India Eisley was really good in the lead role but this wasn't must see TV for me. It was well done, but ultimately a bit forgettable. 

Miracle Workers (TBS)

This show is beyond stupid but it's funny as hell. Daniel Radcliffe and Geraldine Viswanathan play two angels who are tasked with making two humans fall in love or else God, played by Steve Buscemi is going to blow up Earth. 

The Good Place (Netflix)

My husband and I binged this on Netflix. It started out as just background noise but we eventually got into it. It has some great one liners, but I don't think it's something I'd tune into week after week. I could just wait for the next season to drop on Netflix. Weirdly enough, it's the lead, Kristen Bell who is the part of this I like the least. Everyone else feels natural in their roles. She feels like she's acting. 

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon)

I have a free trial for Pime so of course I watched the first two seasons immediately. I LOVE this show. I don't think Prime is worth it financially to me so I'm gutted I won't get to see season 3 very easily. But I'll find away. it's worth it. 

The Case Against Adnan Syed (HBO)

This case was made famous when the podcast Serial talked about it, and now HBO turned it into a four part mini series. I never listened to the podcast, but I recall reading an article about it after it originally aired. Watching this has mostly felt like new information to me so I've found it fascinating. It's depressing that Adnan was denied a new trial. One thing I really appreciated about this doc was that Hei was never lost in the shuffle. Especially in the first episode, they really reminded you that she was a person and she's not getting justice either with the wrong person in jail.

  1. I saw few episodes of Good Place but Bell really annoys me while the rest of the show is way too cute

    1. Bell isn't great, but the rest of it is pretty amusing for a network show.

  2. Oh my god I love The Good Place so much. I put it on for background noise originally but I was hooked after 1 episode. "Ya basic!"
    Miracle Workers literally sounds like a crazy made up TV show and I absolutely need to see it!

    1. Ted Danson is great!

      Adnan's case in insane. He at the very least deserves a new trial.

  4. I have heard nothing but great things about Maisel and I would love to see it. I tried more than once to watch A Good Place because I like Ted Danson but I couldn’t stand Kristin Bell. You are so right about her acting...she tries too hard and should have been sent to hell already for her acting

  6. I keep saying "I'm going to pick out one TV series and actually watch it" but I never do. I simple don't know where to fit it in. I know I'm missing out.

    1. Sunday nights are always my main TV night, you should pick a night a week to do the same.

  7. I love The Good Place and hated Mrs. Maisel (wish I could send you my unused watch credits for that - I mean, remind me when the season is out and I can easily give you my password!). I'm almost curious about Miracle Workers even though even the title is super cheesy!!!

    1. Oh no! I remember someone complaining that Mrs. Maisel is really repetitive and after watching it all, I can definitely understand that complaint. I'm not sure this show can be on for very long.

  8. Nice reviews! I was quite disappointed with I Am The Night, I actually forgot to review it. lol Love that you're enjoying The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. I remember you've been interested in it for a long time. It's one of my favorites too.
