I sat down and looked at all the spring TV I wanted to cover this quarter over here at That’s Normal, and burst into tears. Tears of joy because my absolute favorites are coming this month, and tears of grief because there is no way I can immerse my eyeballs in all of them at once. I don’t know how to choose, but what I AM going to do is make all of you conflicted right along with me.
If you are feeling charitable, you can think of this as a public service: me reminding you when and where to watch what’s next. You’re welcome.
Because the TV gods have blessed us, basically.
Nothing makes me happier than Selina Meyer in disgrace and on the warpath. Season 6 focuses on her ex-presidential post loss and (fingers crossed) a bid for some office. I’m voting for her at her most caustic. And I am looking forward to some scathing political commentary. Watch it on HBO.
Is there any other show out there as funny or as real? When my husband and I binged the first two seasons, we laughed so hard together that we decided it made our marriage better. Amazon drops all of their original shows at once, right? Because I don’t know if I can even sit for half an hour and watch Catastrophe. I need to cram every episode in my mouth at once.
I’m already upset about Carrie Fisher and about Rob getting fat. Watch it on Amazon.
We’ve been teased for months about Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel, but the new full-length trailer gives us a more traumatic, chilling and brutal look at the rise of Gilead. THIS is what we remember from the novel.
This is genuinely THE show I have circled in my Rifle Paper Co planner. I am doing nothing else on the 26th. I cannot wait. Watch it on Hulu.
More Handmaid’s Tale on TN (including our Boozy Book Club discussion from like 3 years ago!)
Do I have to keep talking you all into watching this show??? No? Good. It has everything – it’s fantastical, it’s epic, it’s gorgeous. If you’re the kind of dork who likes to know exactly what everyone is talking about at brunch, you will want to watch this show. And you can even tell your non-Outlander friends to order Starz!
Season 2 of our favorite Netflix fantasy show looks like it’s going to focus a lot on Will and Whispers, and as much as we’d all love to see the Lito/Hernando or Kalalang extravaganza, learning more about the secret agencies that are after the sensates will delve us right back into the story.
I honestly don’t know what to think about this one. Anne of Green Gables is so beyond iconic, this is like imagining a new Gone with the Wind, or To Kill a Mockingbird. How totally unnecessary … how totally I have to watch it now.
It seems like this is less an adaptation of the novels and more a framework to make original stories about Anne Shirley. Do we want that?
I wish I could say this is the definitive list of all the shows you need to watch this month, but there are tons more. These are just the ones I absolutely cannot live without watching.
