What I’m Watching: November 2021 Edition

It’s somehow December and I guess it’s time to do a recap of what I watched. I know I don’t need to do this but chronicling everything to share somehow makes me feel like I achieved something rather than wasted countless hours in front of my TV. No shame or regrets though. We do what we gotta do to decompress and feel good after a long day. Or just to relax!

As with the rest of these roundup posts, I did not include movies since I track those over on Letterboxd. If you’re curious about those, you can visit my profile to see what I watched. So without further delay, here’s my TV list from November:

  • Ghosts S1-2
  • Sort Of S1
  • Midsomer Murders S9-11
  • Bob’s Burgers S11
  • Sex Education S3
  • Succession S1
  • Tiger King 2
  • Sasquatch
  • Maya and the Three
  • Doom Patrol S1
  • RuPaul’s Drag Race UK S3

A friend of mine recommended the British version of Ghosts to me so I sat down and made my way through both seasons in about a week. I really enjoyed it! Apparently, a US version just launched too? Anyways, there were quite a few actors from Taskmaster in the show and it delighted me to see them away from that.

Sort Of is an excellent Canadian series about a trans nanny who is struggling with working through personal issues while feeling stuck in the middle of a family tragedy revolving around the people they work for. It’s not a very long show and is funny, poignant, and engaging.

Sex Education is one of those rare shows that continues to be amazing as it goes on. It explores so many complex themes and relationships, all while being so wonderfully body and sex-positive.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is the best of the shows. Truly. Like, I know the OG is great and I do enjoy it but every time a UK series has aired, it has blown the US counterpart out of the water (for me). This season was no exception and I really had a blast watching it—I just wish it had more episodes!

And on a whim, I decided to try out Succession? I didn’t think I was going to get into it and after the first episode, I felt pretty meh about it. But I went back in for the second and then all of a sudden couldn’t stop myself. Wound up getting super into it and can’t wait to watch the rest!

Controversial opinion here but Doom Patrol is just…fine? I know everyone loves it and sings its praises but it’s okay. I’ve been watching it in the background while I play on my Switch because I can’t focus on any of the episodes for an extended period of time. I just don’t care about any of the characters. SORRY.

The rest of the shows I don’t really have opinions on worth sharing. But always happy to discuss if y’all have any comments or questions about any of them. That being said, I’m in the middle of about a half dozen shows so I suspect December will be a pretty massive list for y’all to (maybe) look forward to.
