    Chernobyl is like a punch in the stomach. I watched the first and third episodes through my fingers but I can't stop.

    I finished Trinkets in two nights. Klepto high school girls who become friends through their support group. I mean, it's like it was made just for me. Loved it, obviously.

    I have been avoiding Outlander because Ron Moore pissed me off so much in BSG , but Scottish accents are a thing so maybe I should try it.

    I have managed to avoid Outlander until now, but Netflix just put up the first 2 seasons and I made the mistake of starting it. Dirty hot boys are not usually my thing, but Sam Heughan is also Scottish with a very Scottishy accent which I feel is UNFAIR when it is combined with that earnest face. I've never read these books and don't plan to, but Starz also has a special where it's 5 bucks for the next 3 months or something, so OBVS I'm gonna watch the other 2 seasons now. One thing that keeps throwing me off is that Cat Balfe looks almost exactly like Anna Torv and I keep having to remind myself that it's not a Fringe alternate universe.

    I loved Dead to Me! Some of the twists were waay over the top but whatever. Applegate shines in this. Cardelini has the more thankless role I think. The neighbor's interests at the end were lol and I always enjoy mother in laws from hell.

    Ooh, I love Applegate! Will have to try.

    If Single Parents doesnít get renewed, Iím going to watch the first season over and over again as self-care like a tremendous weirdo.

    I'm 3 episodes into Dead to Me and really enjoy it so far. Applegate is perfectly cast as a widow who is barely holding it together and who is so full of rage that you expect her to go on her own killing spree at any second. And I usually don't enjoy Cardellini that much in anything, but she's good in this. The show has a Desperate Housewives feel and has similar twists and surprises, but since it's bingeable and has a way shorter season, it feels like the story is tighter and better.

    I finished S2 of Imposters and I still think it's fun. My main problem with it is that the lead girl isn't a very good actress and everyone else around her is significantly better. She's supposed to be a Mary Sue since her whole thing is that she's irresistible and gets everyone to fall in love with her in order to pull off her cons, but she's kind of a simpering nothing with a whiny voice and no ability to emote. And she doesn't have great chemistry with anyone because she's so flat. The three lovers that she's duped actually have way better chemistry with each other and the show is a lot more fun when the focus is on them rather on her. The set up for S3 is good, but I don't know if anyone is going to pick it up. It got cancelled by Bravo, but I'm hoping it comes back somehow.

    Like Vanessa, I love the girls but Martin Sheen as Robert is particularly unbelievable to me, I find Iím always waiting for his scenes to be over and to get back to the women.

    I love Grace and Frankie with the fluffiest of hearts and while I am absolutely in it for Jane and Lily, the husbands are adorable to me too. And if you have no other takers on that LaJoya beach life, hit me up in like 20 years when I'm done raising these kids and I will gladly join you! G&F and The Good Place are the 2 shows I wish would film nonstop until the end of time.

    I binged all of Grace and Frankie and now I am trying to talk my neighbor into buying a beach house in California. She is resisting. Love the girls but Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston pretending to be gay is so very bad.

    Now I am hooked on Good Girls, so I feel like I am mostly interested in things where the female relationships are the point of the show.

    Russian Doll was perfect in every way. I binged it during a snowstorm and I think I got up off the couch like three times during the whole thing.

    I feel like Abducted in Plain Sight was a bad documentary about an insane story? Like a better documentarian could have taken you on a journey and this one just wanted to take you on a ride.

    IT WAS A RIDE. But I spent every third minute leaning in and I even had to rewind a couple of times because they breeze past the CRAZIEST THING YOU HAVE EVER HEARD and then don't really revisit it or expand upon it? LOL. It's NUTS. I kinda want to watch it again tho.
