February = Stress is something that has been established by me. My second semester at university sprung fully into force with February which meant I was absolutely drowning in work. But I didn’t give up on my binge-watching because that’s what I do when I’m stressed.
And then I get stressed that I’ve been binge-watching and not studying. And then I continue watching because I’m stressed. It’s a vicious cycle…
EVERYTHING I BINGE-WATCHED IN FEBRUARY
SHOWS I WATCHED
1. The Good Place S4
I’ve actually been watching The Good Place episodes as they came out but I wasn’t sure which wrap-up to include them in so it only made sense to include it in the month when it would end. I’m just so emotional over this show ending. I absolutely agree with the decision to not stretch it and end it here but still, this show is so freaking beautiful! I love the characters, their development and the overarching theme in general. The fourth season was everything that I could have asked for so it was a bittersweet ending 🙂
MOVIES I WATCHED
1. Vir Das for India
First off, I take offence at this stereotypical poster that seem to exoticise and limit India to elephants, lotuses and traditional designs (Yes my critically analytical courses are making me see a whole new world). But apart from that I really love the sort of comedy Vir Das brings up. It’s extremely relatable and has dark humour and political jokes as well. It’s very well-rounded in general.
2. Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias: One Show Fits All
I recently discovered Fluffy and his insanely hysterical comedy acts and I’m absolutely in love. He’s just so adorable and does these amazing accents and animated noises that add a theatrical aspect to his comedy. As a person who watches a lot of comedy, I found his jokes and ways of narration refreshing. He just gives you a feel-good vibe in general and I would definitely recommend him to everyone!
3. Gabriel Iglesias: I’m Sorry For What I Said When I Was Hungry
Yeah, I’m a bit obsessed. Since I watched both of his specials back to back they’re all just a huge chunk of insane comedy in my head. I think I remember liking the other special a bit more which is natural since that one is his most recent one and reflects on his growth as an artist. But still, this special was extremely funny and I really had to hold in some laughs in public.
