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 just watched two movies that I think a lot of y'all might also enjoy:

1. Netflix's original film To All the Boys I've Loved Before, a teen rom-com based on Jenny Han's bestselling YA novel of the same name. If you are a big rom-com head like I am, I feel fairly confident that you will love it as much as I did, which is A LOT.

*heart eyes*

2. Melissa McCarthy's latest, now available for rental, Life of the Party. I didn't catch this while it was in the theater, but I just rented it, not expecting much, to be honest — so I was pleasantly surprised by how good it is! It's funny and sweet, with some unexpectedly solid stuff on parent-daughter boundaries.

The best.

Also: Gillian Jacobs, whom I know from Love and some of you might know from Community, is so fucking great in it. Melissa McCarthy is the ultimate scene-stealer; here, she's the star, and Jacobs manages to steal some scenes from the GOAT. Legend.

In other news, since I wrote about GLOW last time, I'm excited to report that it's been renewed for a third season! Yay!

Anyway! What are you watching these days?
