A Movie & TV Update
I haven’t shared what we’ve been watching lately, so this will be an all-streaming Friday Five. Below, I’ll discuss some movies and shows worth mentioning that we’ve watched over the past couple months.
1. The Challenge: All Stars: I’ve been working my way through MTV’s The Challenge for months (there are approximately 20 out of 37 season currently available to stream). Recently, John and I dove in to The Challenge spin-off All Stars, featuring Real World, Road Rules, and RW/RR Challenge participants from years past. Season one features more recent familiar faces as well as surprising but familiar faces. A few cast members hadn’t done a Challenge in literally almost two decades!
For people of a certain age, it’s very entertaining and inspiring to watch a cast of mostly 40-somethings, many of whom are now parents, navigate physical and mental struggles. Add a ’90s soundtrack underneath it all and you have nostalgic gold. And because it’s streaming on Paramount+, they don’t have to bleep any swearing. Fuck yeah. We’re now watching All Stars season two.
