What we've been watching.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile + The Ted Bundy Tapes. I admit I didn't know much about Ted Bundy before watching this movie and this docu-series. I recommend it if you're in the mood for non-fiction.

The Perfect Date. A cute high school rom-com. We spent the whole movie trying to figure out what role the main actress played in Superbad.

Someone Great. This had everything in it that I'm grateful I never went through. Breaking up with someone after 9 years of dating? Ugh. I kept saying to Scott WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM? and You probably shouldn't be surprised if someone dumps you after 9 years of dating...if they're not willing to marry you by then, something isn't right. I know not everyone wants to get married, but then what are you even doing? Grow up. And I kept thinking that if they'd just gotten married after two years of dating, this plot point wouldn't even be an issue; they'd be committed to each other instead of the insane childish wishy-washy-ness. The more minor parts of the storyline contributed to the bigger problems in society (drinking to solve problems, drugs, passing out randomly in parks, random hookups, etc), but the whole crux of the main relationship was an annoyance to me. It was 30 year olds acting like 18 year olds.

The Last Summer. This was actually closer to American Pie than I wanted it to be. I don't know why we watched it, to be honest. It was pretty dumb. What realllllllly jumped out at me was how the 18 year old was like You have a job, you pay your bills, you're on your own to the 22 year old guy. I would think that most 22 year olds fall into that category. Or they used to. This is going to be the demise of our society, I'm certain: childhood extending to the age of 30.

[Do you really need a picture for this one?]

Game of Thrones. We finished the last episode in the hotel room in Chicago. Scott kept falling asleep though so I may or may not have half-watched it three times. I have no thoughts, really. Scott was really disappointed in the ending, but I went through my I'm-over-this phase years ago when I stopped following it.

Chernobyl. One of the most depressing things you'll watch, but very informative and true-to-historical events. In fact, we were really enjoying it until they started killing all the pets (spoiler alert), and then that was it. No more Chernobyl. There were only 6ish(?) episodes anyway.

Dead to Me. Like everyone else in the world, I've also watched it. It's okay. It wasn't mind-blowing but it was fine. I really like Linda Cardellini in just about everything.

The Resident. If you haven't watched this show, it's a great summertime binge-watch. It's the only show I've kept up with week to week. That's saying something. A third season starts in the fall, so that gives you a whole summer to watch the current 46 episodes.

Always Be My Maybe. I think Randall Park is hilarious so I had this on my radar and then I took cold medicine last week and could. not. sleep. (I refuse to take the drowsy/nighttime kind because of the baby). So I asked Scott if I could turn on the TV and he's like fine and right away I was like Yes! A movie I wanted to watch anyway! and he was very surprised that I found something so quickly and then even more surprised when I finished the whole thing at 3am.

What have you been watching lately???


  1. We just watched wine country...it was cute and of course blues hockey!

  2. I've been with Jan for 15 years and we're not married. I think I would be somewhat surprised if he broke up with me though .I mean we're currently in the middle of IVF, which seems like a bigger commitment than a ring and a piece of paper .

  3. Yes! I want to see Always Be My Maybe. Love Randall Park!

  4. I really did enjoy the Ted Bundy one with Zac Efron - probably become of Zac Efrom - goodness that man is gorgeous.
    The Perfect Date just got one my nerves. It was like, Take every teenage movie idea & toss in here at once - it was just so random in some parts. I felt like Netflix had to rush together another movie with that guy after the popularity of To all the Boys I Loved

  5. I've been trying to watch Chernobyl but my HBOGo (password "borrowed" from my SIL) isn't working. We were at a hotel with free HBO On Demand this weekend and watched the first ep, though. I watched When They See Us which was fantastic but sad, and the new season of Handmaid's Tale. We DVRed season two of Killing Eve, which I like better than S1 so far. Sneaky Pete is an easy watch (on Amazon). My friend suggested Black-ish which is my travel show when I'm solo. I felt the same about Dead to Me. I mean it was fine but I didn't adore it like so many others.

  6. I still need to watch the ted Bundy movie. Perhaps this weekend... The ending of GOT was annoying and the final season was nothing short of disappointing. I wanted to watch Chernobyl but I wanted to stop paying for HBO more. I'm working my way through Dead To Me now and I like it enough. Always be My Maybe is on the TBW list. I really like both of them.

  7. I've been wanting to watch Chernobyl. I used to have Netflix but now have Hulu so I can't watch some of the shows I'm interested in.
