The US has been under stay and home orders and daily life has changed drastically since March. By turning the calendar to June, those orders are slowing being lifted and we are getting some normalcy back in our lives. We are starting to go back to restaurants with outdoor seating and we are exercising our rights to protest.
Our daily lives changed but we still binge and stream shows constantly, likely more so under the conditions of these past few months. I have made a push to watch different shows from different streaming services. Here is what I have in my queue for June.
Avenue 5, HBO
The Hugh Laurie space cruise comedy from the creators of VEEP is a futuristic take on a space travel. I have previously watched episode one but stopped because I was on a binge of other shows. It is time to go back.
Central Park, AppleTV+
From Josh Gad and the creators of Bob’s Burgers, comes a more musically inclined animated comedy. With that, there is some star power for the show: Kristen Bell, Leslie Odom Jr., Titus Burgess, Josh Gad, and others which make this a show something worth trying out. As of June 5, 2020, three episodes are available with new ones coming every Friday.
History 101, Netflix
Graphics and footage provide bite-size history lessons on many different topics including scientific breakthroughs, social movements and discoveries. Fast food, the space race, plastics, feminism, genetics and more are highlighted by the show. I find this to be a good way to continue learning in today’s world.
Parks and Recreation, Netflix
Yes, I finally started the plunge into Pawnee, Indiana. I am already in season 5 of 7 so I am looking forward to finishing the series as soon as possible! Give me all of the Ron Swanson and Leslie Knope.
