Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!
I still haven’t been reading as much (currently still trying to get through The Song of Achilles and The Well of Ascension), so I’m going to go ahead and talk about what I’ve been watching recently! Basically, just like the post I did last week 😂
Alrighty then, let’s get into it!
What I’ve Finished Watching/What I Plan on Watching
I haven’t finished any new shows yet, however, I’ve been making it a goal to watch all the Studio Ghibli films (HBO Max) by watching one every night. I’m thinking of making a post about it, but it probably won’t be up until later this week or sometime next week… we’ll see how my schedule turns out 😂
What I’m Currently Watching
I’m still watching Obi-Wan Kenobi (Disney +), but today’s episode is the finale, so I’m almost done. I’m interested to see how this ends, as to a certain extent, we already know that things have to set-up for Episode IV: A New Hope… although it may have a second season despite it being labeled as a limited series. I guess we’ll see how the finale finishes up its current storylines, and whether it seems to be setting up for a season 2.
I have started watching Love, Victor (Disney +; Hulu) last week as well, and I’m currently working my way through season 2. Love, Victor is follows high school student Victor Salazar as he deals with moving to Atlanta from Texas, family drama, school drama, as well as coming to terms with the fact that he’s gay. The TV show is a spin-off of the movie Love, Simon (2018), which is based off Becky Albertalli’s book, Simon Vs. The Homosapien’s Agenda, which follows the main character, Simon, as he too realizes he’s gay and falls in love for the first time. The shows are connected in that both characters attend/attended Creekwood High School, and Victor moves to Atlanta the year after the events of Love, Simon take place. Victor hears about Simon’s experience, and after having a rough first day, decides to DM Simon for advice on a whim, which (to Victor’s surprise), Simon responds, and the two forge a friendship. There are only 3 seasons, and the last season actually came out on June 15th of this year, which makes sense in terms of the storyline, as season 3 is supposed to bring the series full circle and end where the first season started: during the annual Winter Carnival. I’ve been enjoying the series so far, and can’t wait to continue!
Since I’ve already talked about what I plan on watching, I’m going to go ahead and end my post here! Like I mentioned, I’ll probably do a whole separate post about watching all the Studio Ghibli films that I haven’t seen before, so keep on the look out for that!
Otherwise, let me know what you’ve been watching lately (or reading!) in the comments below!
On that note, I will see you in the next post (:
