Updated: Jan 19
So a lot of you have been asking ...
Just kidding, absolutely no one has asked for this, but I've written a follow-up post about all of the entertainment I've watched since the pandemic started. And c'mon, WHO AMONG US doesn't need more recommendations on what to watch next?
Let me catch you up to speed. By the end of Summer 2020, I'd seen an astounding 38 movies and hundreds of episodes of 20 different television shows.
Since then, I've watched 36 more movies and watched 8 more TV shows in their entirety. We're still having out nightly sibling chats, which has been a beloved constant during this challenging time.
