Bonus Blog: Best Movies and Shows

This is like the world’s longest blog entry, and it’s just one enormous list. Also, it’s not something that I am particularly qualified to address you about, but it is, after all, just a list of suggestions. Except not really suggestions, because the list here–of best movies and shows–is culled from various lists online, which means I haven’t even seen the majority of the recommendations. (Okay, occasionally I threw one in, but not actually that often.) At the end of the looooooooong list, I did list my favorite movies and shows, as well. Because anybody cares.

I plan on using this list, so I thought I would share it with you in case you’re looking for a list to use to pick your next year’s worth of movies or TV series (which would mean you only pick one subset of this list–like a particular genre) or just movies for the rest of quarantine. I’m looking forward to checking off several of them for family movie night and during my alone, down-time before bed. I might even get around to reviewing some of them, maybe a month at a time like I used to do. And maybe I could star the ones I agree with. (Note: there are a few genres missing, because I simply don’t watch them, like horror.)
