What I Watched This Weekend Continued Again
It was another weekend staying at home, which means I watched more TV than I probably should have. This weekend, however, I did actually clean my bathroom and watch some great TV!
To see what I've watched previously, click here.
First off, I watched Modern Love on Amazon. This limited series is based on real-life stories that were submitted to The New York Times. Each episode is a stand-alone story. Love is the ultimate theme, but it's not always romantic. The show is full of famous faces like Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, Dev Patel, and Andrew Scott, just to name a few. I only cried at like half of the episodes, which is good for me. I don't want to ruin the surprise of the last episode, but there might be some crossover action. Just saying.
Next up, and kind of random. I went back on CBS All Access and watched Season 2 of Survivor because our friend Mitchell Olson was on that season, but I had never seen it. Honestly, I had never watched an entire episode of Survivor ever. It's a really good show, you guys, you should watch it. Seriously though, Survivor: The Australian Outback is from 2001 and it was so addicting. I get it now! CBS All Access has a free trial if you want to see Mitchell in action. Or lack of action. It depends how you look at it. Also, this cast all have amazing teeth! Was that a requirement on Season 2. I think I only slightly annoyed Mitchell all weekend by texting him and asking random questions. But, how often is it, that I actually know someone from the show to get all the gossip?
And lastly, I watched Unbelievable on Netflix. If you are a fan of Law & Order: SVU, then you will like this show. It's about a serial rapist that is escalating and has victims all over the country. As much as it is a detective drama, it also brings to light the way rapes are treated in this country. It depicts how different victims are treated and how different detectives approach these crimes. Unbelievable is based on "An Unbelievable Story of Rape" which was a Pulitzer Prize-winning article by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong which was published in ProPublica and The Marshall Project. It was brilliantly cast with Merritt Weaver and Toni Colette as the two detectives that work together to get justice for the many victims. While hard to watch at times, it was very good.
