Here is what’s making me happy this week. (For more info, see here.)
There is so much delightful TV on right now. My heart is happy. It’s so fun to watch TV and actually use it as a form of escapism. I mean, sure there is light torture on The Good Place and a murderous crimelord on Jane the Virgin. BUT OVERALL.
So, yes, the three TV shows making me happy this week:
1. Kevin Probably Saves the World
As I said on Facebook, I was hesitant to try this one because Kevin is visited by a messenger from God, which okay. But she is also kind of a magical Negro who is also a sassy best friend to guide him???
Anyway, I liked it. It’s sweet and has heart, and it’s all about someone trying to figure out what the right thing is to do and how to do it and helping people. I also really liked the focus on family and that the main love story seems to be between Kevin and his sister (but not in a twincest-y way–oh, internet you have ruined me). So, that is also A+. And the sister is a professor! (Engineering, but we can’t all be perfect.)
2. The Good Place
Chidi continues to be everything good and perfect in this world.
3. Jane the Virgin (slight spoilers for the premiere)
Listen, I miss Michael with the very fabric of my soul, but I also think Adam and Jane are super adorable (he wrote her love cue!!!), and Jane rolling on the floor trying to zip her dress had me rolling. Also, I wasn’t prepared for the dueling narrators, but I enjoyed that Adam’s is a woman and that she is so over Petra’s shenanigans.
And, yes, I know two of these shows are an hour long, but that’s just where I am right now.
