What I’ve been watching this week – May 29
Not only have we been watching this current season of The Challenge, but we have been going back and watching some older seasons in our boredom.
Ethan has shown some interest in the show during his first season of viewing. I asked on twitter what old season we should start with, and a lot of people said Free Agents. So that is what we did.
I hadn’t seen it in ages and I remember really liking it. I loved it again on a second watch. Within a few episodes, Ethan was hooked.
After finishing Free Agents, we went back a little bit further to the first iteration of Exes.
Labor of Love
I almost couldn’t believe that Fox’s newest venture into reality television was not a SNL parody. Well, it’s real and I watched it.
I think the pandemic has rotted my brain, because I actually enjoyed watching it. Or maybe I just have terrible taste.
In this show, our lead Kristy is a 40-year-old woman, wanting children ASAP. So she came to tv to find her future husband(?)/baby daddy. In the first few minutes of the show the men go through some, uh, testing to see if they indeed can be fathers.
Sure, there are some absolute weirdos on the cast, as to be expected. But the cast is actually not that bad? If you can believe it? We even get reintroduced to Survivor Gabon’s Marcus.
Jimmy Carr’s Little Tiny Quiz of the Lock Down
If you love a pub quiz, this will be perfect for you. Jimmy Carr is known for hosting the popular Big Fat Quiz in the UK. I thought it was really fun that he introduced a daily quiz during the lock down. At the end of the week, a compilation video of all of the quiz videos is released so you can watch them all in one shot. Check out the quiz here.
Top Chef All Stars 2
Man, this season of Top Chef just keeps getting better and better. It’s fun, bright, and exciting. After last night’s episode, we are heading to Italy with a flawless final 5. Top Chef All Stars has filled me with supreme joy throughout the entire season, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of it plays out.
