Again today, I’m joining hosts Girlxoxo, Traveling with T and Estella’s Revenge for their annual #AMonthofFaves blog event – “a fun way to recap the year that was” with “every day of the event (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) planned out” and a link-up on all their blogs. Today’s topic is
“On The Screen”.
Favorite TV series
These are some of my favorites, with some overlaps with my wife, but not all:
- Alone Together
- Father Ted
- The Doctor Blake Mysteries
- Kim’s Convenience
- The Kominisky Method
- Mozart in the Jungle (Season 4)
These are, or were, available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu. The highlights for me were the two Canadian shows: Kim’s Convenience and Letterkenny. If you’re offended by language, skip Letterkenny. But if you’re not and like quirky and offbeat, then watch. Unfortunately, if you’re in America, only the first two seasons are available (so far) on Hulu.
Also quirky and offbeat are Alone Together and Psiconautas. The most joyous of all of them is Miranda and both Kim and I loved all of the episodes.
These are our favorite movies from this year in alphabetical order:
- Avengers: Infinity War
- Black Panther
- Crazy Rich Asians
- Deadpool 2
- Eighth Grade
- Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
- Love, Simon
- Mission Impossible: Fallout
- Paddington 2
- A Star is Born
- Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
The ones I enjoyed watching the most were Deadpool 2 and Paddington 2, two movies on the opposite end of the spectrum, highlighted by this exchange on Twitter:
The ones, though, that I think were the most important were BlacKkKlansman and Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, the latter of which my wife and I cried through most of. The former solidified my love of the actor Adam Driver, whom I loved in Logan Lucky, and introduced us to a new love of John David Washington, Denzel Washington’s son, a formidable actor on his own.
