What I'm Watching

This is a thread to share all the good things you're watching at the moment, or have recently watched. Serialized shows on broadcast or streaming; films; digital shorts; stand-up; documentaries; performances — whatever! Tell us what you're watching and enjoying these days.

I am a huge fan of stand-up comedy, which hasn't been a great place to find enjoyment for quite some time now, what with the tiresome "edgy comic" bullshit. But stand-up that doesn't lazily substitute offensive trash for actual well-crafted comedy is having a bit of a resurgence, about which I'm so happy, because stand-up is my go-to when I'm feeling down. And I've been feeling down a lot lately, for what I'm going to assume are obvious reasons, lol.

There have been a flurry of great Netflix specials that I've enjoyed lately...

John Mulaney's Kid Gorgeous made me laugh until I cried. It's my #1 recommendation at the moment (and yeah I can't believe my top stand-up rec at this moment or any other is a straight white dude, but here we are because everything is upside down now).


Tig Notaro's Happy to Be Here
Hari Kondabolu's Warn Your Relatives
Gary Gulman's It's About Time
Ali Wong's Hard Knock Wife
