E!'s "I Am Cait" - Premiered in July but who's counting. One would not expect E! to be part of ground breaking television with fair representation of a group of people. It's been a great blend of raising awareness of trans issues much as Cait learns herself coming from such privilege as well as being a bunch of gal pals hanging out looking gorgeous (because the E! audience). So far it's great so I hope it stays this way. We need Caitlyn's voice!
Netflix's "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp" - The pre-quel to the 2001 cult hit "Wet Hot American Summer" - it takes place on the first day of camp whereas the movie was the last day of camp. It is amazing they got all of the original back together. In 2001 they were actors in their late '20s playing teenagers but now 15 years later they are in their '40s and playing younger versions of themselves lol. If you loved the movie then you'll love this 8 part short series all taking place in one day. I watched the movie to remember all the little inside jokes.
Hulu's "Difficult People" - Starring the fabulous Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner as dramatic versions of themselves and executive produced by Amy Poehler. As a grumpy New Yorker, I can relate to this ALL too well. New episodes stream every Wednesday with 2 free episodes currently airing or if you have a Hulu subscription you can watch all of them.
IFC's "Documentary Now!" - SNL vets Fred Armisen and Bill Hader team up for this mockumentary-style series emulating VICE's HBO series (if you haven't watched an episode then I would because you'll laugh even harder). The premiere isn't until the 20th but they put one full episode up online already. So much fun! I can't wait for more episodes!
USA's "Playing House" - So glad this show got a second season! Love these ladies and this show is so much fun. For those who don't know, a friend gets divorced 9 months pregnant so her best friend moves in. The stars, Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham, are real life best friends so they have wonderful chemistry. In Season 2, there's a baby (who is super cute by the way) and the ladies are juggling new mommyhood. Unlike other mommy-focused shows, I can get into this one and not feel alienated.
