What I watched on TV in February

That month flew by, didn't it? I feel like I made more of an effort with TV this month than I did last. Here's what I was watching.

The Outsider

This show is still going strong. I've managed to not give in and read spoilers so that's a huge accomplishment in itself. Mendelsohn and Erivo continue to be wonderful and with only two episodes left, I'm looking forward to seeing how it ends.

McMillions


I'm not sure this docuseries really *needs* to be this many episodes, but it's been interesting more than dull. I think there's a lot of filler but as someone who never bothered to read into the Monopoly fraud, it's been informative.

Modern Love

This is a anthology series on Amazon Prime and I only bothered to watch two episodes with actors I like. The first was about Dev Patel and the woman he let get away. I loved it. Dev's gorgeous and Catherine Keener was in there too and her character was lovely. The second episode (because I'm in hot priest mode) was about Andrew Scott and Brandon Kyle Goodman who play a married couple adopting a child from Olivia Cooke. This episode wasn't as good and Ed Sheeran shows up for yet another cringey cameo but Scott was very good in it. He and Goodman had wonderful chemistry together. 

End of the F***ing World

Did we need a second season of this show? No, but I wasn't mad at it. I think Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden are great together. I saw a lot of people online hated the ending but I actually liked it. For a show that is so bleak, the thought of ending on a higher note is nice. I also like that this season didn't sugarcoat any of the PTSD that came from the first. 

The Boys

I started watching this on Amazon and it is so different than what I was expecting. I remember everyone raving about it a while back, but I either avoiding in depth reviews or forgot all of them because the tone was surprising. It's an interesting watch so far. I never thought I'd be into a Karl Urban sex scene either but there it was and I'm not complaining. 

Better Call Saul

Season 5 is back! I'm a bit surprised there's going to be another season after this, I feel we're really close to the end but the opening episode where Jimmy is in full Saul mode was fun and Michael Mando is doing good work as Nacho so far. I'm not crazy about Mike in these first two episodes, but we'll see how that goes.

  1. I'm so behind on TV! These all sound worth watching though. I've never even heard of Modern Love but I absolutely need to see the Dev Patel episode <3

    1. I might watch a few of the others but that episode was definitely worth it, and they're only 30 minutes so a quick watch.

  2. I saw some of McMillion$ as I often wonder why I never won that game. Now I know why and it wouldn't be worth it. Plus, I don't eat McDonald's often these days as I prefer to stay home more and cook my own food. I'm not a great cook but I can do some simple stuff.

    1. I can't stop looking at the way he's holding it. It's so incorrect.

  4. Karl Urban is in a sex scene? Yes, love to see that...sorry that from your extensive write up that’s what my eyes glued on. These are all shows I don’t get because I am not on the specialty channels

  5. I tried to watch The end of the F***king World's second season but oh wow, I have no interest in it. I didn't enjoy the first season either so I'm not surprised.

    I liked The Boys a lot! Urban is hot.. :D

    I have McMillions in a tbw list at the moment.
