As much as I love reading, sometimes you just need to curl up on the couch, give yourself a manicure, and watch some good TV. I thought I’d share what I’m excited about watching this fall, some literary-inspired things, and others not-so-literary!
This is Us (NBC)
I’ve been waiting for a while for a new show to fill the void that Parenthood left, and This is Us definitely fits the bill! It’s funny, but it also has some great dramatic moments as well. If you’re looking for a family drama, you can’t go wrong with this NBC series. Watch on demand or Tuesdays at 9.
Hamilton’s America (PBS)
This PBS documentary tells the story of the making of Hamilton, one of the biggest hits on Broadway in recent history. You can stream it online if you want to learn more about Alexander Hamilton! I watched it recently, and it has great historical information and songs from the show to enjoy.
The Crown (Netflix, 11/4)
I’m perhaps most excited about this new Netflix series that follows the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. You know that I’m a huge fan of the royal family, so I’m excited to take a dramatized look behind closed doors. You can watch the trailer here.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (Netflix, 11/25)
Everyone’s favorite fast-talking ladies are back with this revival of Gilmore Girls. We’re less than a month away, and I couldn’t be happier!!
Doctor Strange (Nov. 4)
You may have never been caught up in an Avenger movie-marathon before, but my family has, and so we are now eagerly awaiting every installment of the Marvel Universe. We’re in phase three now..did you know that?
Hamlet (Select Theatres 11/15)
Last year I saw Benedict Cumberbatch in a stage version of Hamlet that was broadcast to movie theaters. Well, this year they’re doing an encore performance. You can read my review here, or you can go see it! I highly recommend the latter. Search “Fathom Events” to find tickets.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Nov. 18)
This movie is a spin-off of J.K. Rowling’s wildly popular Harry Potter franchise. I’m really excited to see the world she’s created for this new installment, and I’m really hoping I like this movie better than I liked Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
So did I leave anything out? What will you be watching this fall?
