What are y’all watching during quarantine? I keep meaning to ask what is new to watch, but the last time I did, y’all got me hooked on 90 Day Fiancé. And there are 298 franchises of that show. That said, they are all number one on their night on cable. So um bravo (SWIDT?) to you. Also a brief word. THIS IS AN OPEN FORUM POST. I know that we are all going through things and have a lot of feelings. BUT PLEASE CONTAIN YOUR OFF TOPIC TOPICS TO OFF TOPIC FORUMS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. I know feelings come out when you least expect it and and I get it, I do it too. But if you are looking vent about ANYTHING off topic, BOOKMARK THIS LINK. And you can talk about whatever off topic you want! There is usually one a week or more. But Off Topic comments is the best place to let us all know how you are doing. Or what shows you randomly want to talk about. Or really anything other than the subject at hand. You can also ask me your questions here.
I’m starting this post late at night because I have been binge watching The Spanish Princess on Starz this weekendish. I am pretty sure I watched some of season one but I don’t remember it. So I watched all of season one and realized that the at least some of the people portrayed in the movie are actual historical figures. I thought it was just more of a… I dunno… random series. So when my brain kicked in I started some googling and reading the reviews. So, if you know your 16th century (?) European history you will hate this series. It’s like 80 percent inaccurate according to the reviews from smart people online whose heads exploded. That’s because is is a MOVIE roughly based on a few historical events.
Even More Good Bad Choices
Tonight’s double feature began with Yesterday on HBO. In case you didn’t know it’s a comedy and sort of a rom com about a guy who is a musician whose career is not taking off so he thinks he should go back to teaching. Then one day he wakes up and no one on earth except for him know who The Beatles are and have never heard the music. So he gets an idea… This one the critics were sort of mixed on. The Beatles music probably helped. I liked it. Who doesn’t like a good rom com.
Right this minute, I am watching The Professor on Showtime. It’s about a college professor who has six months to live. It’s comedy! Johnny Depp plays the professor. It’s his six months of doing and saying everything he ever wanted to say to anyone, and doing all the drinking and druging and fucking he wants. But, it’s kind of funny! All the critics HATE this movie. Which made me like it even more. Did mention Johnny Depp? And it kind of makes the concept that we are all going to die a little easier.
It’s nearly three am, and I am starting Little Women on Starz. I’ve been wanting to see this movie. Of course many of us know the story. But, Do we? I mean it’s 2020 and I really don’t remember. So I’ll let you all discover it. The critics like this one.
Please share your recommendations with the others. I do not subscribe to Netflix or Hulu or any of your new-fangled things. 🙂 I am constantly online working on the site and prefer to watch whatever is available on my dumb TV. But you are welcome to talk amongst yourself.
This is an open forum, so feel free to talk about other things. I VOTED on Friday. I hope you all will too.
