Sound of Metal ( 4 out of 5 stars). I was more engaged than I thought I would. I can't really imagine what it would like to suddenly lose your hearing, but this gave me a feel for it.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier - It was 3.5 out of 5. It didn't feel as significant as Wandavision, which was really a tale unto itself. (Excited for Loki, and The Bad Batch soon.)

Been rewatching The Nanny on HBOMax. I don't normally revisit older shows, but it's been so fun. I'm into season 3.

Currently 3 episodes into THEM on Prime. Loving it so much.

Watched The Handmaid's Tale season 4 episode 3, and started a thread if anyone's interested.

Also, I watched The Real World: Homecoming. It was pretty incredible that Becky still holds the same white lady privilege that every other white woman who claims to not be racist and be woke does. Yet the things she said, in 2021, about race was beyond cringeworthy. Just.....GOD. I wanted to slap her. Kevin Powell struggled to make her see some things, but she packed her bags and suddenly left the loft with no warning to anyone (even the crew). Coward, like most people who just can't take the note about their inherent racism and make a correction.

Aside from Becky, the reunion was so great to watch and see these people together again. I realized just how much they helped shape the social landscape. Norman being an out gay man on a national TV show and be sexual was amazing. Kevin saying things about race that society as a whole are just now hearing since Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, etc. YEARS LATER, and folks are just how saying. It was amazing. Kevin Powell, a young Black man (painted as the angry Black man, wrongly so) and aspiring writer just wanted to make shit a little better.

iI loved the first couple of seasons of the Real World before reality tv and even the Real World became unreal.

I watched it for just a few seasons.

1) New York

2) California (the whole David thing)

3) San Francisco (with Pedro!)

4) London (LOVED that season and recently rewatched the whole thing, still loved Sharon, et al)

5) Miami (an interesting season with the Delicious Deliveries thing; the forefront of UberEats, and that one Cuban gal who was a homophobic Republican)

8) Hawaii (with drunk ass Ruthie and that one dude who didn't click with anyone... didn't he leave? He wrote a book later)

Finally saw the 1st season of Claws. I'm ready for the 4th season to begin. Total over the top soap opera drama that fun as heck on that 4/5.
