The Watchlist.

Updated: Jan 1, 2021

The year of the pandemic, two years of cross-country travel, music, art, social justice, the tech takeover, and rekindled and newly ignited passions inspire my personal 2020/21 watchlist.

There's too much to stream---it's overwhelming to think that it's even possible to watch it all. Who would want to? You won't find Tiger King or Schitt's Creek on my list (nothing against those series, I just chose not to watch them). But, you will find a few select series, films, and documentaries that I enjoyed over the past year. I watched a few remarkable works of art and a few films about remarkable artists.

I watched more than one superhero series and new and old superhero movies. Documentaries on social justice, black lives matter, and digital addiction are necessary to increase knowledge and raise awareness. A list of set in Seattle films and shows are fun to watch as a way to acquaint myself with my new home. I'll revisit my 2020/21 watchlist again and revisit this time of my life.

Ford vs Ferrari was the last movie I watched in the theater on March 11. We missed Nick Mason's film so opted for this one. We ended up catching Nick's Live at the Roundhouse later on.
