It seems like the perfect time to cozy up under a blanket right now and watch a good series or movie! I did a post a few months ago with some of my favorite things to watch, but I thought that I’d do an update with a few new things that I’ve watched lately and enjoyed. Make sure you share your recommendations in the comments, too!
Emily in Paris (Netflix)
This is such a cute, fun show by the creator of Sex in the City about a woman (Emily) who gets sent to France for work, where she knows no one and doesn’t speak the language. I actually binged it in one day (oops!) because I couldn’t get enough. Not only is the show itself great and fun, but the views of Paris and the incredible fashion in the show were such eye candy! Since my views are very much all the same right now, it was a great treat.
The Vow (HBO)
I had been following the news about the cult NXIVM (pronounced nex-ee-um) since it hit the news a few years ago, mostly because I was a huge Smallville fan and one of the actresses was actually indicted for her involvement. The documentary is really well done and fascinating, with lots of insiders going into detail about all the different aspects of their experiences and how they managed to escape. If you’re interested in cults at all, it’s an amazing watch.
Boys State (Apple TV)
I mentioned this documentary in a Friday Favorites post, but I loved it so much that I wanted to include it here. It’s about a program in Texas called Boys State, which brings together about 1,000 17-year-olds where they run mock political campaigns, hold mock elections, and then try to pass mock legislation. Some of it is exactly as you expect – they’re high school boys, after all – but some of it is kind of surprising! It’s definitely worth a watch.
Schitt’s Creek (Netflix)
This is a re-watch for me, but it’s just so good. The final season just dropped on Netflix, so if you haven’t seen it yet, now is the time. For anyone who hasn’t heard of the show, it follows a wealthy family who loses all of their money and has to move to a small town that they own. Not only is the cast absolutely incredible, but it’s such a genuinely kind and heartwarming show. It’s exactly what we all need right now!
