Netflix watchlist: June 2019

June 2019 only featured one TV show, but a pretty cool and weird one.

TV shows:
Happy! (Season 2) [8/10]

One year ago, Netflix watchlist: June 2018 had the first season of the surprise hit show Happy! that showed a different kind of Christmas story, one with a lot of violence and inappropriate humor. Now it’s Easter that receives the weirdness twist in Season 2. However, despite some very crazy ideas, even more violence and bad taste scenes, it’s not as successful as the first one. There are certainly enough memorable set-pieces, very funny sequences, and disturbing imagery, going pretty far in critizicing religion and consumerism. However, the different storylines and dialogues feel a bit dragged out at times, and the mix of action, horror, sci-fi, and comedy can be too much as well. Maybe the element of surprise is missing or many scenes feel to push it too far just to be weird, but Happy! still remains a fresh and cool show that will probably be even better with the next season taking place on Halloween.

There isn’t much else to say about my experience with Netflix in June due to the lack of time (or more time spent on going through physical media), but maybe it’s more entertaining to focus on few shows (or movies) than binge-watching not-so-great ones. It’s also much easier to write about it, with more time for other things, too.
