Streaming Lately

 Hello Everyone,

*Disclaimer: Descriptions and photos information are provided by

I know it's been a few weeks since I last posted, but today I wanted to post a few shows that I've been watching incase you want to catch up on some TV this weekend. This was a great time for me to watch Bridgerton Season 2 since I've been resting the past few days. I finally was able to get my Moderna Booster shot this week and I had some issues with constant arm pain.

Bel Air: Peacock 

A re-imagination of the beloved sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" set in modern-day America through a new, dramatic take on Will's complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel Air. As these worlds collide, he reckons with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions and biases of a world far.

My Thoughts

I saw the first episode of Bel-Air and I was impressed. I'm a fan of the original Fresh Prince of Bel-Air so I was curious to see the reboot. I noticed from the first episode that this version is more intense than comedic, but still a good start from what I saw. I'm unsure if I'll catch the other episodes since I don't have a full subscription to Peacock, but the first episode was free and worth checking out.

Inventing Anna: Netflix

A journalist investigates the case of Anna Delvey, the Instagram-legendary heiress who stole the hearts and money of New York elites.

My Thoughts

I remember when this story made news a few years ago about Anna Delvey (Sorokin) pretending to be an heiress. I didn't know a Netflix series was in production, but Inventing Anna kept my interest. It's bold, comedic, and an outlook on the mind and actions of a someone pretending to be something they're not. 

The Tinder Swindler: Netflix

A group of women who were the victims of a dating app based swindler join together in an attempt to hunt him down and recover the millions of dollars that were stolen from them.

My Thoughts

I don't understand how people give so much money to someone they barely know. I don't do online dating in general, but for those that do, please be careful. I tell you if it seems to good be true then it probably is. To call this guy a con artist is an understatement. 

Bridgerton Season 2: Netflix

Bridgerton” is back, dear readers, this time following the love story of eldest sibling Anthony Bridgerton as he seeks out his perfect match on the marriage mart, a young woman named Edwina Sharma, but finds himself falling in love with her older sister, Kate.

My Thoughts 

Like the discription states, Bridgerton is back! I may or may not have binged watched season 2 last night into early this morning (4am to be exact!). The second season was pretty good. I'm glad the series focused more on the Anthony's look for love this season. There's drama, suspense, heartbreak, and love. Definitely check out season 2 if you're a Bridgerton fan.

As I mentioned I tried to give my thoughts on each show without giving away to many details etc. Have you watched any of these shows? If so what are your favorites? Which ones do you want to check out?

Thank you!

I still need to get started on season 2 of Bridgerton as well! Can't wait. I heard the Anna show was really good - looking forward to that one as well. It's been a minute...hello again from Oregon, Pilar

Marie said...

I can't wait to finish watching Bridgerton! The second season is good so far! I saw Inventing Anna! It was good as well! Thanks for sharing Pilar!

It's great that you got your booster esp. with the BA.2 variant running around now. We have been mainly watching Asian shows and movies lately.

Pilar said...

Hi Carrie! Glad to see you posting again! Both shows are pretty good. I stayed up to 4am Saturday morning finishing season 2 of Bridgerton!

Pilar said...

You're welcome Marie! I enjoyed both shows!

Pilar said...

I thought about the new variant going around. My arm was so sore, but I'm glad I'm glad it was finally time to get the booster.

I saw Inventing Anna and I was in awe of the sheer extent of what she was able to get away with.
I started watching the Tinder Swindler the other day but haven't finished it yet.

The only show I haven't seen is Bel Air, but I've only watched a bit of the others and have been entertained so far. I might binge Bridgerton once the babies fall asleep lol. Have a lovely week!

Thank you Marie!

Thank you for these reviews. I'm not good with seeing series, I always seem to miss them or start but not finish. I didn't know there was a new Prince of Bel-air. That's really interesting!
My friends saw The Tinder Swindler and their thoughts mirrored your own. It is hard to believe anyone can so naive but at the same time, these predatory types can be really charming and good with manipulating people emotionally. It really doesn't matter how smart a person is, everyone can be tricked by a con artist. I think this guy deliberately choose women who didn't have very close friends or family, someone they would be telling they have met someone and someone who would tell them the guy is fishy.

I plan on starting season 2 of Bridgerton tomorrow. So excited!
I love anything Shonda Rhimes is behind so I have been watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix for months now. It is amazing how long the show has been on the air!
Inventing Anna was fantastic and another Shonda Rhimes project. What an entertaining story!

Pilar said...

I know! She got away with so much! The Tinder Swindler was more shocking in terms of how much he scammed those women.

Pilar said...

I hope you enjoy Bridgerton if you get a chance to watch! It's definitely binge worthy!

Pilar said...

You're welcome! I was just shocked on how he manipulated those women. People that scam people are usually charmers with an motive in mind. I'm glad he was exposed as a con artist. I agree I think he contacted women who were vulnerable.

Pilar said...

I haven't watched Grey's Anatomy in a long time, but it's a good show! I hope you enjoy the second season of Bridgerton! It was good!
