If there's one thing social distancing has been good for, it's for catching up on a lot of TV. Here's what I watched last month, and I imagine April will be full of shows as well.
Talk about going out with a fizzle. I still really liked this season but I was not impressed with the finale at all. The way the entire finale was shot made all the sets look so cheap and it was confusing for no apparent reason. Why did Holly say "Who's Terry?" When did she get scratched? wtf is going on?
I loved the last episode of this where they talked about who the informant was. This was really interesting. HBO has been killing it with documentaries lately.
Better Call Saul
I'm getting so frustrated with Kim's story so far. She's one of my favorite characters and seeing her make these horrible decisions with her job and bringing Jimmy into it when you know that shit is going to backfire is just hard to watch. Then when she finally tries to stop it, and Jimmy shows his true colors, she proposes marriage....what?!?!
Who Killed Garrett Phillips?
This was another documentary I found on HBO about a 12 year old boy who was murdered in his own home and how the police focused on his mother's ex boyfriend, Nicholas Hillary. Why him? Because he was guilty of being black in a mostly white area. This was interesting because it's still asking that question. Who did kill him? Not Hillary, who we watch get completely rail roaded but still continue to fight his way through. They do slightly hint at another man possibly being responsible, but they didn't elaborate on it much. I had to fall down a reddit rabbit hole for that.
I finished this at the beginning of the month, but now towards the end I'm struggling a bit to even recall parts of it. It was fine, but it's not something I'm dying for the second season.
After last season was so underwhelming the first few episodes (minus that awful D&D cameo) have been really promising! Many questions haven't been answered yet, but they have my attention.
The Plot Against America
We're only a few episodes in on this one as well and honestly, it's like watching the 2016 election all over again. Horrifying. Great cast and production design, but horrifying.
I finally got around to watching this show after putting it off for ages and it's so funny. It absolutely stresses me out about dating though. Is that what it's really like now? I love all the ups and downs Issa and Molly have though. Easily becoming one of the most interesting female friendships on TV.
The Dark Side of the Ring
I've been an on-off wrestling fan my entire life, and I had forgotten that Vice had this series to begin with. To kick off their second season, they went back to arguably the darkest time in professional wrestling history with the Chris Benoit murder/suicide. I thought it was very well done, they had interviews with Chavo and Vickie Guerrero, Chris Jericho, Dean Malenko, etc and they talked a lot about how Eddie Guerrero's death affected them. They even interviewed Benoit's son from a previous marriage (though they inexplicably pretend his daughter doesn't exist. Maybe that was her choice not to appear but it was so strange) I liked it enough to go back and try to find some of the earlier episodes from last season online. I watched the one about The Fabulous Moolah, who I've never been able to look at the same since hearing about those stories years ago. Hopefully I can find more.
