1. Younger on Hulu

I am so sorry everyone. If you haven’t noticed, this list is a little shorter than usual. In the interest of full transparency, we literally only watched Younger for a full week. No breaks. We’ve been completely detached from reality. I no longer have any idea what’s going on IRL. Is Joe Biden still president? You know what, don’t answer that. I’d like to forever stay in my Younger bliss. Nothing can take this away from me. Glad we cleared that up! So let’s get down to the meat and potatoes (or eggplant lasagna if you’re Maggie omg Younger humor). I am forever indebted to the member of the Candle Coven who encouraged us to watch this precious gem of a show. Mathematically, it’s perfect for us. It’s basically Emily in Paris, Darren Star’s more recent masterpiece, but it’s 2015 Brooklyn and everyone is a Broadway juggernaut or Hilary Duff. Just like in EiP, men are accommodating and hot, straight women are gay men and lesbians are basically in charge - this is what we mean when we say “world peace.” I could honestly write a thesis about how incredible I think this show is, but alas, this is What We Watched and I must keep it tight. This show has some of THE BEST comedic performances I have ever seen. It’s up there with like Catherine O’Hara level good. Molly Kate Bernard, who plays millennial PR expert Lauren Heller, is a comedic genius on the level of John Early in Search Party - every single expression she makes is laugh worthy. And MIRIAM SHORE. OMG MIRIAM SHORE. THE RANGE THIS WOMAN HAS. And don’t even get me started on Sutton Foster. This woman doesn’t even remotely look 26, but nobody cares because Sutton Foster is SO GOOD. I AM IN LOVE WITH ALL OF THESE CHARACTERS! 7 seasons of pure bliss. We are literally going to restart the series immediately because I am already feeling withdrawal symptoms.

2. Poor Things on Hulu

We FINALLY finished Younger with enough time to squeeze in Poor Things before watching it not win best picture at Sunday’s Oscars. I was definitely prepared for this movie to be another that falls in the category of “men and their ideas.” I heard the name Yorgos and my brain went “oh another one of those Del Toros.” But then I remembered that Yorgos is a big ol’ weirdo and made movies like The Killing of a Sacred Deer (with OG creepy Barry Keoghan), The Lobster, and The Favourite - all movies I enjoyed! Ok so back to Poor Things. It’s an absolute visual delight - the COSTUMES, the never ending hair, the set decoration. There were a handful of times where I could pinpoint the actual painting being referenced - very fun for me! But I think what really sold this movie for me, and what honestly prevented it from potentially being cringe, was Emma Stone’s performance. I mean, she literally just won another Oscar for it, and I must say it is well deserved. It was honestly the performance of a lifetime, and possibly one of the funnest parts I can think of playing for an actor. The concept is quite unsettling - Emma’s Bella Baxter has her brain replaced with HER BABY’S. Yes you read that right. This movie could also be Yorgos’ explorations of making the most unnerving concepts digestible in an attempt to point out one glaring reality - MISOGYNY. This movie’s like art school Barbie and it’s great. Two words - furious jumping.
