What I’m Watching: May 2021 Edition

Since this is apparently what I do now, I’m here to tell you about all the things I watched in May! It’s mostly the TV I’ve watched (my In Progress list is vast) but if you’re curious about the movies, click here.

  • Sense8 S1
  • RuPaul’s Drag Race S6
  • Taskmaster S8-10
  • Shrill S2-3
  • Trying S1
  • Big Hero 6: The Series S1
  • Bob’s Burgers S5-7
  • The Inbetweeners S1-3

I’m finding that I’m drawn to shows with a much shorter runtime. And I’m more willing to try something new too if it’s 30 mins or less. Pretty much everything on the above list fits that description, with the exception of Drag Race and Taskmaster.

I had completely forgotten about Shrill and devoured Seasons 2-3 in a couple of days. Same with Trying! I actually had no interest in the show but because it was short, I took a chance on it and wound up finding it completely delightful.

Shows like Bob’s Burgers and The Inbetweeners are rewatches for me. I’ve been playing a lot of Cozy Grove and Stardew Valley and I love having something on while I play on the handheld console. And the last thing I’ll mention is how great the Big Hero 6 show is! I’ve been watching that as my morning cartoon with my breakfast and coffee, and it’s well worth it.
