What I’m Watching: September 2021 Edition

What I’m Watching: September 2021 Edition

I am once again back to shout about all the things I watched in September! It was surprisingly a lot?  Even for me???? Like, I looked at this list and was like, ‘Did I accidentally mash-up months?’ but nope, I just spent a lot of time on my couch for the start of cozy season.

If you’re interested in the films I watched too, you can visit my Letterboxd account here. And I’ll be recording all my spooky watches for 31 Days of Horror starting today…but yeah!

Honestly, LOOK AT THIS. How did I watch all of this?! To be fair, Legends of Tomorrow, American Ninja Warrior, and Nine Perfect Strangers were all shows I watched serially so probably over the course of the last couple of months? But still.

I once again have a pretty big section of reality TV and I don’t have much to say about it except I’ll lump a limited docu-series into the mix here which was LuLaRich on Amazon Prime. This was wild and I really enjoyed the ride that was this MLM/cult/pyramid scheme feature on the company LuLaRoe. I highly recommend it.

As you may have guessed from my love of the heist movie genre, Lupin continues to be incredible. You always worry that as a show continues, it’ll lose its quality but it was just as good in the second part.

Squid Game was also really excellent! I devoured the entire thing in a little over a day. I saw on TikTok though that the translations in the English subtitles are really inaccurate though, or rather that they really mess up on a lot of the nuance. But regardless, I had a great time with it. I know there’s going to be more but I kind of wish it was just a limited series.

Nine Perfect Strangers was a bit of a letdown. There was all this build-up to a pretty anti-climactic end so I was kind of bummed by that one. It had a lot of potential and I was recommending it to friends as I watched it.

And finally, Midnight Mass was another thing I binged. And most recently too! It just came out on Netflix from Mike Flanagan aka the guy who did The Haunting of Hill House and Bly Manor series’ there. It’s different and we explore more supernatural things but this time tackling something else entirely. I don’t want to give anything away since it’s new but I really enjoyed it. Spooky but not too spooky.

What did you watch last month? Let me know if there’s anything else I should check out!
