This might just be my new Monday thing. Telling you about what I watched over the weekend. Before, I sometimes would let you know about fun events or things I did over the weekend, but I don't get to do that anymore. So, TV is all I have.

March 27th was supposed to be the release of the live-action Mulan, but it was postponed. To ease my sadness, I decided to watch the original, animated Mulan on Disney+. It helped ease the pain a little bit.
Since I was already in Disney+, I saw that the live-action Dumbo was available. I remembered wanting to see it when it was in theatres, but never made it! Now was my chance. They changed the story a little bit, but it is still the basic Dumbo we know and love and makes us cry. Plus, Colin Farrell is nice to look at. Tim Burton directed, which you can totally tell, but it's just not quite as dark as some of his work. It was actually very visually stunning.
I've had friends telling me forever that I should watch The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon. So, I figured there was no time like the present. I made it halfway through season two and I am enjoying it so far. It takes place in 1958 in New York City. Miriam Maisel had everything she thought she wanted. She had a husband, two kids, a nice apartment, great parents, and then her husband leaves her for his secretary. Miriam decides to give stand-up comedy a try and she's actually pretty good. It is amazing how different things were for women back then and how not so different things are for women now.
Lastly, a new Netflix movie came out on Friday called Uncorked. It's about a guy, Elijah, living in Memphis that wants to become a Master Sommelier, that's a wine expert if you weren't sure. His family owns a BBQ restaurant and his father wants him to continue running it. Will he choose the family business or start a new path? I like a theme so I may have had some Riesling while I watched the movie.
