What I’m Watching: October 2021 Edition

Annnnd that’s a wrap on Spooktober! I’m not gonna lie, I’m sad that it’s come and gone. Now it’s time to process the fact that the holidays are almost here…and it’s nearly the end of the year. I DON’T WANNA TALK ABOUT IT YET. So until then, let’s talk about some of the things I watched last month. I watched 40 horror movies for Halloween—you can see the full list on my Letterboxd. That’s what I spent the majority of my TV time on. But I still managed to watch a few shows too, so here they are:

  • What If…S1
  • Baking Impossible S1
  • Only Murders in the Building S1
  • The White Lotus S1
  • Holey Moley S3
  • DuckTales S3
  • Mare of Easttown
  • What We Do In The Shadows S3

Almost all of these were quality TV shows! It’s been a long time since I could claim that. Out of this mix, my #1 by far was Only Murders in the Building. What an ABSOLUTE JOY it was. Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez are perfection together with the latter balancing out the big, over-the-top personalities of the two formers. I was hooked on the premise too and enjoyed watching it every single week. It’s a new favourite!

Mare of Easttown was fantastic, but pretty much everyone has already said that already. Kate Winslet is a treasure.

And then the last show I’ll quickly mention here is What We Do in the Shadows which someone in its third season continues to be a brilliant and hilarious journey. It took some unexpected turns and I love how it keeps me on my toes but remains ridiculous and light-hearted.

What did you watch during Spooktober? Any highlights?
