More TV Shows to Watch

If you’re looking for a new series to watch this weekend, below is a list of some shows I just recently watched.

What We Do in the Shadows
Based on the 2014 movie with the same name, What We Do in the Shadows is a comedy that came out last year on Hulu. If you’re a fan of mockumentaries like The Office and Parks & Recreation then you’re going to love this show. What We Do in the Shadows follows the lives of three vampires who’ve lived together for over 100 years, on Staten Island, in New York. It’s the funniest and dumbest thing ever, I highly recommend it.

I started watching this series with low expectations because my friend undersold it to me but it turned out to be really enjoyable to watch. I think I binge-watched the whole season over two or three days. The show focuses on the conflict between Israel and Iran with an interesting storyline involving Mossad agents living in Iran trying to infiltrate it from the inside. If you were a fan of Homeland then this is for you. Tehran is available on AppleTV+.

The Queen’s Gambit
You’ve probably heard about this show since everyone has been talking about it for the past couple of weeks. The Queen’s Gambit is a mini-series that recently came out on Netflix and is about a young orphan girl who discovers and masters the game of chess. I really liked the show but this one I think was actually overhyped. The way everyone has been talking about the show led me to believe it’s the best thing to come out this year but it’s not. It’s fun to watch, but it’s not the best thing ever.

Ted Lasso
This was another show I think was overhyped. Ted Lasso originally started as a character in a 2013 NBC Sports promo and now turned into a proper TV series. Ted Lasso is an American football coach who is hired to coach a professional soccer team in England. Ted has never played soccer in his life, nor does he know the rules so it’s pretty funny watching him get to grips. But, that quickly wore off for me after a few episodes and honestly, the series trailer and the original NBC Sports promo show the funniest bits. Ted Lasso is available to watch on AppleTV+.

Mark, I am in awe of you- how do you even make the time to watch so many TV shows ?! πŸ€”
As far as reading goes I keep falling back like no one’s business- the most current I can get with reading is catching up on reading Whatsapp messages, at best. So when anyone asks what have you been reading these days I point to the Whatsapp app on the phone.

Just to share you my TV watching habit, I watch TV shows while having meals (sometimes I stretch an episode or two if the show is really good) while my reading habits are to read pre-bed time for and hour or two. It’s all about identifying your priorities and abandon letting yourself auto-piloting everything. That is the key.

I’m waiting for the comments for more recommendations πŸ™‚

The Mandalorian and The Undoing airing one episode per week πŸ™

The Undoing is a very thrilling show

Bear in mind, everyone is the ultimate authority to anything to whatever they get to experience. They watch one show and they like it and they think it’s the best show ever and they demand everyone they know and their neighbors to watch it. Don’t get too annoyed by it, it’s just how the human mind works. Anyone will try anything and suddenly (to them) it’s the best thing that everyone should try out. I would say empathy is how you should deal with such behavior (which is again, you’ll face all the time)

Hey Mark, for some reason I cant seem to enter your website through STC network, it just gets stuck while loading, tried it with my phone data line and the router, no luck, now im using a vpn to view your blog.

i keep thinking i’ve solved the issue but it seems to still be there. no idea how to fix it because i can’t seem to replicate the issue some users have.
