What I’m Watching: June 2021 Edition

Oh hey! We’ve made it through another month in 2021 and I have a new What I’m Watching list for you. I know, this is really riveting stuff…but hey! Gotta provide the content the people crave. So here we go:

  • Bob’s Burgers S8
  • Sailor Moon R & S
  • Geordie Shore S11
  • Taskmaster S9
  • RuPaul Down Under S1
  • Riverdale S4-5
  • Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts S2-3
  • Mythic Quest S2
  • Amphibia S2
And then there are a couple shows that I tried out and didn’t really enjoy…I’ve included them but I don’t really have much to say.
  • Solar Opposites S1 – I wanted to like this? But ultimately I couldn’t even make it through the whole first episode.
  • Physical S1 – I really disliked Sheila’s internal monologue; it was too much. I couldn’t stick with it, it made me constantly cringe.

super enjoyed going through Sailor Moon as an adult and getting to relive it. I still have a couple of seasons to go but Seasons 2 & 3 were amazing and getting to see the proper dub has been great.

Lots of reality TV continues to be on my list; Taskmaster is my go-to funny show, Geordie Shore is my go-to trash show, and then RuPaul is somewhere inbetween? I really enjoyed Down Under though, despite the fact that it seems so short and I wanted more of it!

Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts was incredible and continues to prove that we’re in a golden age for TV. I love a show that clearly knows where it’s going and delivers something that entirely comes together. It was an absolute joy to watch with such a powerful message of empathy and compassion. Loved it.

Amphibia came back even stronger with its second season. It’s rare that a second season outshines the first but I think it took a bit for it to find its footing and it is hoppingly great! It packed even more emotion into the story and no spoilers, but THAT GRAVITY FALLS CROSSOVER!!!!!

I have nothing to say about Riverdale that I didn’t text my friend Hagai about 500 times. So I will say nothing more…that show is what it is.

But that leaves me with Mythic Quest which was incredible this season. It was good last season, especially with a couple of one-off episodes that detoured from the main story and took us on an emotional journey away from everything else going on. The second season does it again but it doesn’t feel like a bit? It caught me off-guard with the emotions and the personal arcs that each character has. If you haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend it.

And that’s it! What have you been watching?
