Please don't let me down, last week of February.
Here's the deal - this week is filled with a bunch of things that could be super enjoyable or they could be total busts. I have no idea, you have no idea but, man, Netflix Gods, please do what you can to please me this week. It's looking like a busy week for me work-wise so to be able to come home, pop off my pants, pour myself something sweet and have something solid to sink my metaphorical teeth into, that'd be real, real great.
First up, on Tuesday we've got this Pete Davidson standup special that I'm excited for. I was actually supposed to see that son of a bitch in Syracuse last year but he backed out a week before the event for who knows why. But essentially, I'm assuming whatever jokes I would have heard from him is more or less what's going to be included in this special. My wife and I like him - we're big SNL fans and love any time he shows up on Weekend Update so I really hope he puts together something humorous.
Then on Wednesday we've got this I Am Not Okay With This series that's quite intriguing. It's like if you mix End of the Fucking World with Stranger Things or something but directed by John Hughes and I am allllll about that shit if my assumptions are correct. Or I could be disappointed. We'll see, I suppose.
Then on Thursday the remake of the first ever Pokemon Movie hits the same streaming service and that one I already know I'm going to love simply for nostalgia reasons. It's not going to take much to convince me that I love it - a story that I already love but in an updated animation style that looks like a Pixar movie? Yeah, lol. Okay. Sold.
Then on Friday we've got new albums from Caribou and Real Estate that should be quite good and something on Netflix called All The Bright Places - I actually didn't look this one up at all so I know nothing about it. But it sounds like a Christmas movie. I know it isn't. But maybe it should have been.
And lastly, next Sunday is the premiere of Dispatches from Elsewhere which is the new show featuring Jason Segel on AMC. I love Jason Segel - I watch the majority of anything that he stars in and AMC has quite a few hits under their belt so I have confidence that this could be fantastic. I want so bad for it to be the next big thing so that I can get in on it from the ground floor and not have to play catchup like I'd have to do if I choose to continue watching Better Call Saul.
So, yo, a bunch of shit to be excited about this week - have a good one, everyone. Let's goooooo.
(Oh, and maybe a Nintendo Direct this week and a Frank Ocean album on Leap Day, am I right?)
