Kind of a dumb costume drama, but I am here for all of the dumb costume dramas Netflix wants to throw at me.
Borgia: Faith and Fear (season 1)
A smarter costume drama, as described here. Amazeballs costumes, rabbits, death. Also side note, I found that linked blog post while trying to figure out which Borgia show was the "good one," since two were made virtually simultaneously. I only just discovered while writing this post that the blog belongs to Ada Palmer, who wrote a book called Too Like the Lightning that I am tremendously interested in reading. Small world!
Star Trek TNG
Still waiting for Discovery.
Now that we're finished watching Happy Valley, my mom and I are looking for a new show to get into. I don't think this will be it, but I'm open to other suggestions.
Halt and Catch Fire (season 2)
I was putting off watching this for no reason. This show is so good and I feel like no one else I know ever talks about it.
I'm happy that M. Night Shyamalan seems to have figured out how to make good movies again. He brings a weird sensibility to things but I enjoyed the hell out of this.
Every now and then I stumble upon a country song that's just a little too real. I was anti country until my dad bought a car that only had AM radio in it, and I developed a taste for country. It's kind of a funny music genre because it's pure unadulterated nostalgia about 90% of the time, but there are some gems. This is one.
