What I’ve Been Watching (4)

Posted June 8, 2017 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in TV Talk / 34 Comments

Television

Master of None // I binged season 2 in 2 days. I loved this season as much if not more than season 1. Aziz Ansari takes tough topics and makes them funny in a heartfelt way. The Thanksgiving episode was my favorite.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt // I am conflicted on season 3. There were parts I really liked and thought were funny. Then there were some drawn out storylines and I felt the ending was blah. So mixed bag for me.

The Wire // Guys we finally finished The Wire!!! This is definitely up there in my top 5 shows of all time. Great series finale too.

Catastrophe// Oh this show. Funny but brutal sometimes. Ended on a lower note for the couple and wonder where it will go next season.

The Keepers // This I started after hearing about it from a couple of places. It is a docuseries about the murder of a nun. It is good but I find it a bit slow.

Movie

Mr. Right // This was awful. Yet I watched it anyways. Mostly because I like Anna Kendrick and the dude in it. The actual plot is so far fetched and it was just super dumb. I would skip it for sure if I were you.

Comedy Specials

Ali Wong: Baby Cobra // This was super funny. I hadn’t heard of Ali Wong before stumbling on this special but man I will be looking out for her more. She does the special 7 months pregnant which good for her.

John Mulaney: New In Town & The Comeback Kid  // I knew who John Mulaney was and have seen him around but never watched his stand up special. Well I watched the first one and immediately put on the second. He had me cracking up from the beginning.

Amy Schumer: The Leather Special // I like Amy Schumer but this was not her best. There were some funny moments but overall it seemed like nothing new and not super funny.

What have you been watching lately?

  1. I’ve been shoving Master of None in everybody’s faces, honestly. I thought the second season was better than the first one simply because there were so many facets to it, whereas the first one ended up focusing a little too much on Rachel and Dev’s relationship? The Thanksgiving episode, and the episode with vignettes from around New York City were definitely two of my favorites. Such masterfully done.

    I should really get to The Wire. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a single negative thing about it!

  2. Wait…is Ali Wong from the show American Housewife? Because she’s hilarious on there! At any rate, I need to watch her special. I haven’t seen Amy’s new one – bummer it’s not that great. I got to see her live last year though and I loved it! I LOVE John Mulaney. He is seriously one of my favorite comedians. I thought both of his specials were great.

  3. There are a few I REALLY want to watch- definitely Masters of None, Catastrophe, and Kimmy Schmidt. Honestly, if I could stop watching The 100 for 5 minutes, maybe I’d be able to watch something else 😉

    I actually have watched all the comedy specials! I liked Ali Wong’s too, and agree completely about Amy Schumer- it wasn’t her best at all. I LOVE John Mulaney, I am glad that someone else agrees!
