I actually slowed down on TV this month since it's finally summer and I can be outside, even if I still can't go anywhere else. Here's what's been keeping me busy on the small screen.
Insecure - For the first time, I didn't love an Insecure episode, and that was the finale. But it is making me look forward to the next season so it's not a complete loss. A lot of people predicted a pregnancy, I wasn't one of them but it happened. I have high hopes for next season. I hope Issa and Molly work it out, and I hope Issa and Lawrence just go their separate ways. I think that would be for the best. I also hope there's more Kelli because god she's a comedic gem.
I Know This Much Is True - It's like the TV Gods looked at me and said "Oh, you thought Six Feet Under was depressing?" This was such a heavy show. I never read the book, as I mentioned before so I don't have that to compare it to, but I thought it was a strong mini series overall. Mark Ruffalo is amazing. I thought Hugh Jackman would be a shoo in for Best Actor in a Limited Series/TV Movie at the Emmys for Bad Education but Ruffalo not winning this would be an absolute joke. This is probably his best work. I also hope Philip Ettinger isn't left out of the Emmy conversation either. He played the younger version of Ruffalo's character and he was spot on.
Space Force - I wasn't expecting much from this show to begin with but man what a dud. The only two characters I like are Angela and Chan, them and my curiosity about why Maggie was in prison (which they never answer) was what kept me watching. The biggest laugh I got from the entire series was Anglea's first words when she landed on the moon. The most atrociously written character is Erin, who plays Steve Carrell's teenager daughter. She is for some reason a high school student even though the show flip flops back and forth about treating her as one. She exists only to be a snarky bitch. Diana Silvers deserves better than that.
Snowpiercer - I tried getting into this, I really like the cast but it just wasn't something I wanted to go back for. Airing on an already crowded for me Sunday didn't help. I think I might attempt to binge this again later.
I May Destroy You - I LOVE Michaela Cole and I'm glad she has an HBO show. This is another heavy watch, but it's also littered with so many wonderful moments between Arabella and her friends.
Inuyasha: The Final Act - I rewatched this with my son. It's my all time favorite anime but I forgot just how fast they blew through about 20 volumes of manga to make these episodes. Now there's news of a sequel and I'm kind of terrified to see what they come up with. I also had to laugh. Exposition is rarely a thing I complain about in movies and after re-watching all of Inuyasha, I think I know why. This show was nothing but exposition. I've just been so used to it all this time.
