There are straight-up too many streaming options. It's a full-time job to keep up with what's hot in the cord-cutting streets. Like, I loved Ozark but still haven't seen the third season because I haven't found the time. I'm probably setting myself up for spoilers (which I've avoided to this point). Please don't make me regret opening to you for the sake of an introduction.
They're expensive too; $10 here, $13 there adds up quickly, especially if you support DIY content. I pay for multiple apps and have a few passwords from friends and family. If that's what communism is, I don't see the big fuss, but I'm not trying to red scare you; I don't lean that left. I'm just saying I get it; there are a million options out there, and it's hard to keep up both time wise and financially. Plus with so many options sometimes great shows get cancelled all the time. Like I loved GLOW and Santa Clarita Diet and both were cancelled on cliffhangers. I'm sure you read plenty of blogs with recommendations and don't need me telling you what to watch.
But in case you're looking for some HBO recommendations, I've got you.
Of course there's The Gilded Age, but this blog isn't about period dramas filmed in Newport.
This blog is about comedy programming and today, HBO announced that Southside and How To with John Wilson were picked up for third seasons.
Both are hysterical in their own ways, and I cannot recommend them enough. South Side is full of shit-talking and real-life situational comedy. It started on Comedy Central in 2019 before switching to HBO for season 2 last fall. Southside character driven and jam packed with laughs. Officer Goodnight might be the funniest character on TV.
While "How To with John Wilson" shows one man's documentary-styled, visually-driven tutorials that take you on a rollercoaster of "what the fuck is going on?" moments. Plus, Nathan Fielder produces it, that should be all you need to give it a look.
Alright, I need to focus on the Celtics to make sure they don't lose a game they started on a 28-2 run. Both of these shows are fucking hilarious, and if you have HBOMax, you need to check them out.
