What’s on my TV lately: January 2021

Bridgerton (Netflix)

This is a show that is completely and totally out of my comfort zone. I usually refuse to watch anything that is set in a period before the 20th century. I don’t like watching shows in which the people have British accents. I would describe this show as Gossip Girl set in 1800s London. By the second episode, I was HOOKED!! Love, sex, secrets, lies. It has it all. There are only 8 episodes in the first season, so it’s a relatively quick watch.

Haute Dog (HBO Max)

This is a dog grooming competition show on HBO Max, and it’s every bit as ridiculous as it sounds. The host and judges are absolutely hysterical, and I love watching the cutie dogs get groomed. I also try and imagine what it would be like if it were my dogs on the show, and it probably wouldn’t go well. I’m in awe of how well behaved these animals are! If you like dogs, competition shows, and are looking for something light hearted and corny, this is for you.

Pieces of a Woman (Netflix)

I’m not one to watch movies so this really took me out of my comfort zone as well. I literally will watch the same movies over and over again (Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, Christmas Vacation). It does deal with a very triggering topic (infant death), so please take this as a warning. It was hard to watch, but it was also incredibly well done and I felt every single emotion of the characters in the movie. Subject matter aside, the acting and direction was absolutely impeccable.

The Bachelor (ABC/Hulu)

I skipped last season of The Bachelorette because I just couldn’t deal, but this season? I’ll be tuning in. I love that ABC has FINALLY casted a person of color as the leads, as well as the cast of girls is much more diverse than we’ve ever seen in the past. So far, I’m into it! I’ve seen almost every season of The Bachelor since the very beginning with Alex Michel. I’ve been obsessed with reality TV for a very long time.
