What We’re Watching Wednesday | Only The Brave & Money Heist

Today, I’m starting a new feature here on the blog called “What We’re Watching Wednesday,” (graphic to come later and after thinking about it might change to “What We’re Watching This Week,” since it’s not just on Wednesdays that we’re watching), where I’ll be sharing what Kim and I are watching in terms of movies and TV each week.

This past weekend, I watched on my own Only The Brave, not knowing what the movie was about and purposefully not looking online to see the true story on which it was based. However, I had a feeling that it wasn’t going to end well, and it didn’t, but it was really a good movie. I don’t know if the performances were great, but the story was great about a group of forest firefighters in Arizona. Once I knew what was going to happen, I started crying and didn’t stop until after the credits rolled. If you’re going to watch this movie, get from a Redbox or a similar outlet, so you can watch the special features on the true story.

And for our TV pick this week is one I’ve mentioned before and one I’ll probably mention again called Money Heist on Netflix. It’s a Spanish series and we just finished watching Season 1 this past week and started watching Season 2, which we didn’t even realize there was going to be until a few weeks ago. The story focuses on a group of supposed bank robbers who end up kidnapping a group of people in Spain’s head bank. However, it ends up being more complicated than that with the series focusing on the robbers/kidnappers, the hostage negotiators, and the hostages themselves and how all three interact with each other. Yes, it has subtitles, but it is more than worth the effort. My wife got me watching a few Spanish language shows, starting with Narcos, and I haven’t been disappointed yet. I don’t think you will be either with this one:

So what you have been watching lately? Movies and/or TV? Anything worth sharing? Share away in the comments.

  1. I started watching The Americans on a whim and am completely hooked. I can’t get the show out of my head when at work and just want to sit in front of the TV and watch ALL the episodes. This is the first show in a while that has me that excited about television.

  2. This is brilliant. I hate smooshing in my TV watching with my Monday reading posts, so this is a nice workaround. Also, I want to talk about TV more on the blog, and this is a smart way for me to do it. Thank you, Bryan, for inspiring me.

    (I have watched neither of the things you’ve mentioned here, btw.)
