An admission that I consume way too much media as a lonely old bachelor: Netflix edition

This missive is an admission that I consume way too much media. This week is all about Netflix only. Since you are my friends, you probably have lives, loves, kids, lovers; so, let me watch Netflix.

An admission that I consume way too much media as a lonely old bachelor: Netflix edition


First, before you even read the list below, please be sure not to miss Undone on Amazon Prime Video. I wrote a blog post about it a month ago sans spoilers that you might enjoy: Undone on Amazon Prime Video is a masterpiece, both visually and as literature.

OK, here's my mixed list of stuff on Netflix that I have both loved and hated and sometimes just liked or lusted. I will go deeper into Amazon Prime Video next week and maybe even recommend some YouTube channels the Friday after that. Enjoy!

  • Otherhood: Angela Bassett, Patricia Arquette, Felicity Huffman, & Jake Hoffman, right?
  • Big Mouth: Finally, my degenerate adolescence has a voice!
  • The Politician: Thought it would be bad but it turns out to be the smartest television of 2019
  • Smart People: Probably written by someone who loves loves The New Yorker more than anything.
  • Nikki Glaser: Bangin': Vulgar but good.
  • Under the Eiffel Tower: self-indulgent twaddle; sadly, fell desperately in love with Judith Godrèche.
  • Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: Just to watch Eddie Murphy and Seinfeld together doing anything.
  • The I-Land: The worst TV show ever⁠—not even worth hate-watching.
  • I'm Sorry: Andrea Savage, Andrea Savage, Andrea Savage, Andrea Savage!
  • Tall Girl: Tallness is like the 8th thing wrong with Tall Girl.
  • The Chef Show: I love cooking shows and this one is charmless despite the A-list stars. 
  • Kim's Convenience: Charming series about a Korean immigrant family in TO and their convenience story-owning life and how their second-generation children just don't get it.
  • Katheryn Ryan: Glitter Room: If you don't know of her, she's a femme-forward Canadian comedienne living in London worth every second of your time.
  • The Spy: I really loved this exploration of early Israeli spycraft from Sacha Baron Cohen until I didn't
  • Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State: Probably way more American truth than you'll be able to stomach.
  • Aziz Ansari: RIGHT NOW: I thought really good, but it's also a pandering mea maxima culpa
  • Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj: Minhaj will change the world more profoundly than John Oliver or Stephen Colbert.
  • Hart of Dixie: No excuse except I love petite brunettes.

Have an amazing weekend!  The weather in Arlington, Virginia, just outside of Washington, DC, is stellar, blue, perfect, and a lovely 72°F/22°C, sunny, and clear. Godpseed!
