Okay, so I shared two books that I read earlier this week. I thought since it’s the weekend now though, I’d share two television series that I recommend watching. Maybe you have some downtime to binge watch a few episodes before Monday rolls around.
First up: The Bold Type
To be completely frank, when I first saw a commercial for this show, I rolled my eyes. It’s a new series on Freeform (formerly ABC Family) about three young women trying to make it at a fashion magazine. I was expecting it to be overly eager to be a “cool” show about the ever-so-trendy #feminism that would fall flat on the screen. Or something like that. Last weekend, I couldn’t sleep and decided to watch the pilot just to see. It’s a great show that talks about real issues (workplace, romantic relationships, friendships) without trying too hard. I think they nailed it and can’t wait to see how it plays out.
I also just finished Anne with an E, the Netflix adaptation of Anne of Green Gables. Anne of Green Gables is such a classic story with various adaptations over the years. This series though is beautifully shot and remarkably… dark. I could have watched the episodes with the sound off just to take in the gorgeous landscapes (and costumes). It is a great story though and goes a bit more in depth about the abuse Anne endured as an orphan and why she is the way she is. I’ve been slowly but surely working my way through the season and was so sad when I realized that I had watched the last episode. I need a second season!!
