What I Watched This Weekend Continued Again And So Forth Etc. Part 4
Even though here at the station, we are back in the building, and businesses and restaurants are slowly re-opening, I still had plenty of time to do some binge-watching.
I suppose I'm semi-quarantined now instead of just quarantined.
Anyway, to catch up on what I have watched previously, click here.
I started by watching the new Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt special on Netflix. It is a choose your own adventure episode called Kimmy vs. The Reverend. Kimmy Schmidt was one of my favorite Netflix shows so I was super bummed when they called it quits, but this one time special actually indulged my Kimmy cravings. Everybody is back, Ellie Kemper, Titus Burgess, Carol Kane, Jane Krakowski. Plus, now there is Daniel Radcliffe! The choose your own adventure spin was actually fun and pretty seamless. If you're indecisive, maybe this wouldn't be your thing, but I enjoyed it!
Next up, Outer Banks on Netflix. I had read somewhere that this show was like a modern-day The Goonies and it was in the Top 10 so I thought to myself, "I'll watch the first episode and go from there." Well, six episodes later, I was still watching. By Sunday, I had finished the whole 10 episode season. I will say, it's kind of like a modern-day The Goonies in the sense that they are on the hunt for a treasure and there is definitely a rich kid, poor kid dynamic, but that's where the similarities end. It's basically a teen drama. I wasn't totally invested the whole time, but by the end, I was definitely rooting for certain characters and wanted to know more after the last episode. And guess what? It was renewed for a second season! Don't threaten me with a good time! One thought I had during the show, these are modern-day teenagers and they are never seen on their phones! A few of the dilemmas could have easily been solved with a text message. Were they not on their phones because cell service was bad after the storm? I guess. Also, at the risk of sounding creepy because I'm old now, it doesn't hurt that most of the cast isn't hard to look at. Anyway, I'm a sucker and I'll watch season two for sure.
