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 still more excited about The Good Place than just about anything else on TV or streaming these days. I LOVE IT SO MUCH! (Our whole house loves it.) I look forward to each new episode, and I have to pause it at least once every week to exclaim at Iain, "HOW DOES THIS SHOW EVEN EXIST?!" because I still can't quite believe that it does.

I love these characters so much, and I love Michael and Janet and the Judge, and everyone else.

And I love the writers.

Though every episode is really better than the next, I have to say that "Jeremy Bearimy," episode 5 of season 3 (two weeks ago) was a real standout for me.


Because I cry at everything, I get choked up during nearly every episode for one reason or another, but it was full-tilt tears during "Jeremy Bearimy" when Eleanor suggests to the rest of the Soul Squad that they give themselves purpose by spending the rest of their remaining days working together to help other people get to the Good Place.

"How do we make the most of whatever we've got, for ourselves and for others?"

Well, isn't that the fucking question for us all.

I can't wait to see Eleanor, Tahani, Chidi, and Jason try to figure out the answer for themselves.

Anyway! What are you watching these days?
