Netflix Rec | 13 REASONS WHY

I heard a lot about 13 Reasons Why before I actually sat down to watch it, both positive and negative.  I read the book when it was published in 2007, and I remember liking it and feeling impacted by it.  Ten years later, though, I couldn't remember enough of the details to decide whether the… Continue reading Netflix Rec | 13 REASONS WHY

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Netflix Season 2 Honestly, this new season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is the entire reason I renewed my subscription to Netflix.  The first season is one of my go-to feel-good TV shows, and its absurd humor is exactly tailored to mine.  I was mildly disappointed with the first half of season two,… Continue reading Netflix Rec: What I Watched in April

Wet Hot American Summer I'd heard about this weird movie that starred a lot of current comedian gods and goddesses, but never really had the motivation to watch it.  When I heard about Netflix's sequel (prequel), I figured I'd give it a shot.  You should too!  Wet Hot American Summer is absurd humor at its… Continue reading Netflix Rec: What I Watched in August
