On Wednesday night I watched Moon Knight and had a great time with it (I'm not sure about that voiceover tho...). I then watched the first three episodes of Julia. It's great.
As far as TV goes, I've already found some gems. But, then there's spy thriller Slow Horses on Apple TV+ that looks like it'll absolutely be my jam. And then there's a new Richard Linklater film on Netflix. And Judd Apatow's new comedy also on Netflix. And there's that new Craig Robinson show Killing It, which features the transcendent Claudia O'Doherty.
What I'm saying is... this weekend has so much to offer TV-wise. But you know what it doesn't have? Returning shows. Is that the future of TV? Short-run limited shows? Maybe...
