What I’m Watching
I kept making the title of this series of posts about my TV watching habits longer and longer. Now, I've decided to just shorten it to 'What I'm Watching' instead of the previous 'What I Watched This Weekend Continued Again and So Forth Etc Part (insert #).' I feel this gives me more freedom, seeing as how it is now Wednesday so the weekend is kind of far away and I don't know why I felt the need to explain that, but here we are.

Anyway, this week I watched High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney+. If you liked High School Musical or Glee, then you will love this show. It's basically what would happen if those two shows had a baby. The show goes into a few more issues than your average Disney Channel show. I think Disney+ gives them a little more freedom. I feel a little creepy saying this as a 34-year-old woman, but Ricky, played by Joshua Bassett, is a cutie patootie.
The drama teacher, played by Kate Reinders, was good, but I felt like she was doing a Kristin Chenoweth impression the whole time.
According to the internet, season two is a go! And thank goodness because they left us with a couple cliffhangers! Also, this is kind of a spoiler alert, but the season ends with an epic tap number by an unusual character and it was everything! I loved it so much!
And for a change of pace, because one can only have so much fun, happy songs in their life, I watched the first two seasons of True Detective on HBO Go. I love me a good murder/mystery/crime drama/cop show. True Detective is definitely dark and twisty. I had read some reviews that season one was amazing and season two was not so great. I guess I would agree, but I also think the murder in the first one was just more interesting. It was a serial killer with a very strange M.O., whereas the second season is about political corruption in a California town, nothing there we haven't seen or heard before. I did like Rachel McAdams in season two holding it down for the ladies in law enforcement, but overall I think Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in season one were just a better overall team. Season three stars Mahershala Ali so I guess the verdict is still out. I'll report back next week.
