I’ve been so into the World Cup this month and now that it’s over, I feel so incomplete. I really do love watching soccer. Even if all my favorite teams lost (Spain, Nigeria, and Portugal). France’s victory was quite something. Croatia definitely made their mark, though. Who doesn’t love an underdog?
I don’t have a show review this week but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been watching Netflix. I started watching the show Marlon. I’ve been wanting to check it out for a while but I didn’t have cable when it came out last year. Season one is currently on Netflix so I watched it and it definitely gave me some My Wife and Kids vibes. I have Xfinity now so I’m going to start watching season two. It’s a pretty funny show and Marlon Wayans is great. His hour long comedy special “Woke-ish” is also on Netflix and it is absolutely hilarious.
I just started watching Kim’s Convenience yesterday. It’s a really cute sitcom about a Korean-Canadian family. Mr. Kim runs the convenience store and his daughter Janet is a photographer in art school. Mr. and Mrs. Kim’s relationship is very interesting. Their son Jung is estranged and works at a car rental agency. I’ve seen a couple episodes so far and I think I’ll continue watching it.
As far as TV goes, I’ve been watching a lot of The Loud House on Xfinity On Demand. It’s one of my favorites as far as the newer cartoons go and it’s honestly really good. The premise is interesting, the show is really funny, and there’s always a lesson at the end. It has everything I loved about my favorite cartoons growing up.
I haven’t liked a lot of the new shows coming out on Disney Channel, but Stuck in the Middle is really good. Harley is the middle child of the Diaz family. Being stuck in the middle of six other siblings isn’t easy but Harley’s inventions often help save the day. I love how the main character is so into STEM. Her inventions are pretty creative.
Craig of the Creek is a new show on Cartoon Network that I’m absolutely loving. It’s a show about a black boy who has adventures with his friends down at the Creek near his home. The characters on the show are great and I love the family dynamic. It’s another one of those shows the always has a lesson at the end.
All in all, I’m loving the diversity I’m seeing in a lot of these newer shows. Not every new show is the best, but that doesn’t mean that they’re all bad either.
