What I Watched on TV in April
After a brief flirtation with Spring, we're back to being winter here in the upper Midwest so that meant for more time indoors. Here's what I watched on the small scene last month.
The Dropout - I finished up this limited series. I was hoping the final episode would go a little bit more into her trial, but I suppose they completed filming before all of that happened. Overall, this was a lot better than I expected, and I'm glad I watched it.
Tokyo Vice - If there's a show that caught me by surprise, it's HBO Max's Tokyo Vice. I kept getting ads for it on youtube. Ansel Elgort gave me pause, because I really don't care for him as an actor, but I'm glad I gave this a shot because I really liked it. I hope it gets a second season because the finale left a LOT of cliffhangers. It was also the weakest episode because of course one of our main characters had to do a Very Dumb Thing™ to add drama. That was my biggest complaint.
Moon Knight - I think I'm in the minority that prefers Steven to Mark. Isaac's English accent is just so pure. This has been okay. If Oscar Isaac wasn't in it, I don't think I'd be enjoying it that much. The finale was wildly underwhelming.
Atlanta - This season has been so weird and disjointed. I haven't disliked anything, but it's just...strange.
Not So Pretty - This was a documentary on the beauty industry, and what caught my attention was the 4th episode on hair because it talked about the Deva Curl scandal. I have naturally wavy/curly hair, and I used Deva Curl instead it started making my hair frizz up. I stopped thinking it was protein overload, then all the other people having issues with Deva came out. I got lucky. They're a trash company that never took responsibility for what happened and if anything, I wish the episode would've went harder on them. They could make an entire feature length documentary on this.
Hacks - Late last year, I watched the first two episodes of this and never went back to finish. So I started completely over and binged the entire season. This is so funny, and season two is right around the corner!
