What I watched on TV in March
Welcome to my monthly round up of what I've been watching on the small screen. This month I watched a lot of miniseries, binged a new to me show, and watched another season of a favorite. Here are my quick thoughts
Pam and Tommy - I was too young to remember the fallout of Pam and Tommy's tape, but I thought the show did a really good job of showing how negatively if affected them. I felt so sorry for Pam, and to a lesser extent Tommy. There should've been a lot more consequences for this.
The Dropout - This is doing a good job of dramatizing bits we already learned about in the documentary. Seyfried is great. As of this writing there's only two episodes left, and I'm looking forward to them.
Reservation Dogs - I finally got around to watching this and it was so funny. The final episode is frustrating, so I'm glad there's a second season on the way because Elora...what was that?!
Phoenix Rising - Evan Rachel Wood's documentary on what happened with her and Marilyn Manson. It was a tough watch. Wood is brave to recount all of this. I hope she can find peace and I hope Manson faces legal action for all the things he's done.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel - This was by far the weakest season of the show. It still had some great moments (and outfits) But I didn't care for Mei's personality change and where her story appears to be going. I also wanted to scream at Midge in that final episode. Hopefully season 5 makes up for all this.
Our Flag Means Death - I'm kind of half watching this. The first episode didn't pull me in at all, but every now and then someone says something so funny that I completely laugh my ass off. I'm just happy to see Hodor out there thriving.
Bad Vegan - I had this doc playing while I was working. I'm not sure this needed 4 episodes, it was pretty cut and dry and not as exciting as I thought it would be.
Atlanta - The first episode of this show was REALLY out there. I was about halfway through it before I realized I was watching a version of the very real tragic murder of Devonte Hart and his foster siblings. This character thankfully doesn't meet the same fate. It was a very Atlanta move, and a very strange way to kick off season 3. The second episode, featured the main cast and felt more like what we're used to overall.
