August 2019: TBW (To Be Watched)

Happy Friday Storytellers! It has been  a whirlwind summer and I can’t wait for things to start settling down again as we begin to near the final days of Bookending Summer event! It’s been a blast getting to know more of you and getting to know those I already knew better! I am still combing my way through the everyone’s posts on the blog hopping masterlist but so far I am just in awe of you guys. You are amazing.

If you are new here–first off, if you are, Hiya and welcome to my neck of the woods!– then let me tell you that apart from yelling my love of books from the mountain tops, I also yell my love of movies and TV series from those very same mountain tops!

A couple months ago, I created/started this monthly post where I listed out my TBW list (To be watched), which is similar to a TBR list except instead of books–it’s TV and film. So this is me jotting down and sharing what I hope to be watching this coming month!

But without further ado, kick back, relax, and look at all the things I have yet to watch.


Buffy: The Vampire Slayer (Hulu)

Current standing: Season 2, Episode 3

I have thoughts on Spike and his crazy ass lady friend…we shall soon see how I feel later.

The Umbrella Academy (Netflix)

Current standing: Season 1, Episode 1

Everyone that I know who has watched this has ranted and raved about how good it is. I think by the fourteen millionth plea of “Sam, you NEED to watch this!” that I probably should waddle into it? Fingers crossed I enjoy it!

When They See Us (Netflix)

Current standing: Season 1, Episode 1

This one has been Emmy nominated for several different awards, and honestly limited series are kind of my jam because I can binge without fear of having to wait for another season. It’s a win/win here!

Fleabag (Amazon Prime)

Current standing: Season 2, Episode 1

This one is also Emmy nominated (are you catching onto the trend here?) and as soon as I watched the trailer I knew that this would be something up my alley. Simply stated–I wasn’t wrong. This show is hilarious, and I am absolutely smitten with Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s performance in this comedic and relatable take on making it in this world. Quality content here folks. 10/10 would recommend!

Pose (Netflix)

Current standing: Season 1, Episode 1

Okay so I watched the first couple of episodes of the second season on the TV one night and I was instantaneously hooked! I loved the drama of it all, and I have a mighty need to find out what the hell is going on and why–so ya girl is going back to the beginning. Praise bless to Netflix for putting the first season up!

Killing Eve (Hulu)

Current standing: Season 1, Episode 1

I honestly have absolutely no clue what this is about. At first, I thought it was kind of like the TV version of Obsessed (the movie with beyonce and the crazy white lady), but then I was told that’s not it at all, so now I am just overall intrigued and going into this blind.
This is also Emmy nominated…😂


This is backlist films only. New releases will be in a separate post (My anticipated August Movie Releases).

King Lear (Amazon Prime)

That is all you need to know. OH! And also this is Emmy Nominated.

Secret Obsession (Netflix)

I LOVE THESE TYPES OF THRILLERS! So ya girl is ready for all the WTF’s and Oh shit!’s she will most definitely be letting fly out.

Every Day (Amazon Prime)

This was on my last TBW and I still haven’t gotten around to watching it, but still so badly want too! Check out last post’s reason that still is true down below! ⤵

Based off David Levithan’s book of the same title, this one I was really looking forward to seeing when it was released in theatres–but life happened and I was unable to go. So when I saw Amazon picked it up on their streaming site, I may or may not have done a little jiggle in my bed. I am anticipating another bop of a movie so I really need to read this book first…and quickly!

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (Netflix)

I love Black Mirror, so I don’t know why it is taking my so long to get to this one, but like the rest, this one is also up for a Emmy, so ya girl has gotta watch!

Homecoming (Netflix)

I stan Beyonce like I stan myself. She is queen–I am queen, we must support our fellow queens!

Have you seen any of these? If so, what did you think?
