The Never Ending Watch List

A couple of weeks ago Tabby and I had a little weekend away and we were looking through some TV shows to download and picked Bob’s Burgers. An animated show, set in a family run burger joint, that’s always on the brink of going bankrupt. I watched the show way back when it first started, but didn’t get very far with it, although I did enjoy it. We then watched the movie when that was released on Disney Plus, which I really enjoyed and I’m glad to have finally started the show. We’ve been watching it most nights with dinner and have now finished season 1. It’s always a good feeling to have a new show to watch, especially when there’s a good few seasons so it’s not all over before it starts.

We’ve also been watching What We Do in the Shadows, which has been brilliant as always. I think this is my favourite comedy airing at the moment. Every episode is incredibly funny and the characters are excellent. If you haven’t seen it, then I highly recommend it. It’s a mockumentary about a household of vampires, that’s a spin-off of Taika Waititi’s film of the same name. Very funny and silly.

I’ve also started watching The Always Sunny Podcast on YouTube. I really love It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and I knew the podcast with the three main cast members was out there, but hadn’t ever listened to it. I didn’t even know there was a YouTube version until it came up on my recommended list, with an episode featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda about the Nightman Cometh episode of It’s Always Sunny. I really enjoyed it, and have gone back to episode one and started watching/listening to the podcast in order. If you’re a fan of It’s Always Sunny, then definitely check out the podcast. If you’ve not seen the show, then watch it. The podcast has made me want to go back and watch it all over again. The show follows a group of friends who run a bar in Philadelphia, but they’re the worst people imaginable.

Something else I watched recently, is the Liam Gallagher: Knebworth 22 documentary. I saw this in the cinema a few weeks back, and it’s now available on Paramount Plus (along with a shortened version of the actual concert). It’s a pretty decent documentary about the concerts that Gallagher performed at Knebworth back in June and acts as a nice follow up to the documentary about Oasis playing there in 96. The best bits are the actual songs that are played, and it’s definitely worth watching if you’re a fan of his solo stuff or Oasis in general. I haven’t watched all of the concert yet, I paused it around half way through, but I’ll watch the rest soon.

Thanks for reading!

    Bob’s is such a consistently great show and only gets better and takes bigger, more emotional swings as it goes; the Christmas episodes in particular tend to be absolute killers. Also, it’s so refreshing to see a sitcom couple that genuinely like each other and have a relationship that isn’t defined by being parents.

    After we ran out of WWDITS we tried Fresh Off The Boat, which I cannot recommend enough, it’s SO smart and belligerently strange and funny in the best ways.

    One last thing I’ve been recommending to everyone that’s somehow escaped the spreading of its gospel is Bluey, which is so gentle and wholesome and funny and sweet and real; as with many people, we started watching it because of Family Children but now we’ll watch two or three in the evenings to wind down, or before work as a really relaxing way to start the day (which is easy, because they’re like eight minutes long). Mostly I’m just so happy for the generations growing up with it, who are going to be so kind, but so strong.
