This month I decided that I would spend some time catching up on some of the Oscar films I didn’t yet have chance to watch and power through some of the shows people most frequently want to discuss with me that I wasn’t up to date with. My trouble sleeping seemed to help cross these off the list, although I think they may have also been contributors to it. Here they are.

Highlights of the Month

Rick and Morty (Season 2)

rickandmortyFor some unknown reason I had only watched the first half of season 2 and this was the month I realized and fixed that. I really like the comedic sensibilities that the writers of Rick and Morty have. It is usually clever and well thought out, even if it can sometimes dip to a juvenile level I doubt the show is aimed at. The guest cameos were a ton of fun and the characters progress in a format that would typically encourage the opposite. I’m glad I got around to it.

The Danish Girl (2015)

Despite my effort, I only got around to one of my overlooked Oscar films. I didn’t love it. Alicia Vikander and Eddie Redmayne are fantastic, and there’s no particular aspect of it that I thought was poorly done. I think I ultimately just wasn’t interested in the material and it felt more like homework than a pleasure.
