As I’m sure many of you do, I tend to struggle to decide what to watch on Netflix. We have a couple things that we watch every night after work; we catch up on Game Grumps, Pet Collective, and Fail Videos on YouTube, and on Monday’s we watch Bob’s Burgers on Hulu. But the other day, we saw an advertisement for Aggretsuko, and I fell in love immediately.
I spent a good chunk of my high school years watching the original FullMetal Alchemist anime and loving it. I still get nostalgic for it even now. When I first heard about the live action version and saw that first trailer, I needed to see it. I hoped and prayed for it to come to American theaters. It didn’t, but thankfully Netflix got it. I just watched it, and let me tell you how much I loved it.
A few weeks ago, I got bored and decided to scroll through my Netflix list to find something new. I landed on Syfy’s Haven. It had been on my list for a while so I thought what the heck. I’ll let you in on a secret – it’s literally only taken me about 3-4 weeks to finish this show. It’s so good.
A week or so ago, I woke up extra early (thanks, brain), got a bunch of stuff done, and wore my injured self out. After hobbling around the apartment for 2 hours, I plopped on the couch and fired up Netflix. Bright was in the new section, and I had been harassed by it daily at work; ads for Bright were popping up on YouTube and Spotify. So I figured, why not?
I binged all of Atypical this weekend, and I really enjoyed it. It was interesting and frustrating, but overall a good show.
I had an incredibly busy weekend, Fangirls. I dealt with some serious personal stuff Thursday through Saturday, had an Art Fight Saturday night, and then my anniversary was Sunday. We hadn’t planned anything for the anniversary other than gifts and dinner, and I’m glad, because that meant we got to watch all of the latest Wet Hot American Summer installment.
I want to start by saying I know nothing about Archie. I read one of the first issues of a revival of it because a friend recommended it. But the show Riverdale has been on my watch list since I first saw the weird CW treatment it was getting.
