Happy Easter everyone! I hope everyone’s having a great weekend so far. I haven’t watched another film recently to review, so I thought I would write a little bit about the TV shows that I’ve watched recently. As I’ve said previously, I don’t watch that many shows, but I still watch some.
Over the weekend I finished The Afterparty, which I really enjoyed. I only started it because Ben Schwartz is in it, and it didn’t disappoint. It’s about a high school reunion afterparty where one of the attendees is murdered and each episode is a detective questioning one of the partygoers and seeing the events from their side. It’s funny, and had me completely gripped. I had my own theory going, but was completely wrong and didn’t see the ending coming at all. I’ve read that a second season is on the way with a new crime, and will definitely be watching that.
I’ve also recently started Severance, with Adam Scott in it. It’s a mystery thriller about employees who have their mind split so while they are at work they don’t remember anything about their personal life and while at home they don’t remember work at all. The first episode didn’t grab me, but my wife is a massive fan of Adam Scott so we stayed with it, and it’s gotten a lot better. We’re five episodes through the nine episode season so far and I’m enjoying it, even if I have no idea what’s really going on. It’s a very weird and unique show, nothing like anything I’ve ever seen before.
Last week Spy x Family started, which is one of my favourite manga from the last couple of years. The second I saw that an anime was coming out, I knew I was going to watch it. The first episode was great, very close to the manga and just as entertaining. I’m looking forward to more of the season and that is definitely going to be something I watch every week, like clockwork.
Something that I thought I would keep up with, but haven’t, is Star Trek Picard season 2. I watched the first episode when it was first available and I really enjoyed it. I liked season 1 a lot, and the opening episode was even better. I just haven’t found the time to watch the next few episodes yet. I know I will soon, and hopefully it’s just as good. With season 3 already in production and a lot of TNG cast returning for it, I’m excited to see what happens next.
That’s all the TV I’ve watched this year, apart from The Book of Boba Fett, which I really enjoyed as well. Have you watched any of these shows? Or do you have any recommendations, as I know I’ve missed more than a few gems, let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading and until next time,
