What I watched on TV In September
More social distancing, more TV. I feel like The Sopranos is taking over my life. So many movies and books are taking a back seat to it. Here's what I was watching on the small screen last month.
Lovecraft Country - This show continues to be wonderful and weird. This last episode was complete filler but it was GOOD filler. That's how you do it. There's only three episodes left as I'm typing this, I'm curious to see where it goes.
The Sopranos - As I'm typing this, I'm almost finished with season 5, then I just have their mammoth season 6 left. This show is all I want to watch at the moment but like...men are the worst, right? There are no likable men on this show at all. I vaguely remember reading about NXIVM and how the girl from Smallville was involved when that story dropped a few years ago, but I never took a deep dive into it. This documentary has been eye opening and I had no idea how far this went. At first glance, I was surprised they were doing 9 episodes on this, but now after watching the first 5, I completely understand why. There's a lot.
Defending Jacob - I'm trying to make good use out of that Apple TV free trial and even though I loved the book and Chris Evans is so, so hot. I read about the changes they made and I just don't know if I'll continue watching it. It's ~fine~ but I'm firmly in the "book is better" camp.
Fargo - This got off to a massively slow start, it's too early for me to completely discredit it. There's a lot of potentially interesting pieces and I like the actors, so I'll stick with it.
The Third Day - Jude Law is out there about to get Midsommar'd and here I am screaming at my TV telling him to leave. HBO's newest Monday night show is off to a decent start. I *think* I have it figured out, but we'll see.
