While we are still living in these crazy times, we can all say that if there was one thing that helped us get through the past seven months, it would be entertainment. Whether it’s television, movies, music, video games or books, they all have given us some light in these dark times that we are all going through.
With the Fall television season now starting up slowly, I thought it would be the perfect time to talk about some shows that you should definitely check out while you wait for the next season of your favorite show to premiere.
1. Schitts Creek (Netflix)
After winning pretty much every comedy Emmy this year, Schitts Creek takes their final curtain call as their last season was just released on Netflix.
If you haven’t watched Schitts Creek, it is about a wealthy family that loses their fortune and moves to a very small rural town. You get to see each member of the Rose family try to adjust their lifestyle from the Rich and Famous to the opposite of that.
While I have not completed the final season yet, I can tell you that it is sweet to see some of the series long character arch’s slowly begin to find their ending. It is sad to see this show end because of how unique and hilarious it is, but I’m glad that this show is ending with the fanfare that it currently has. This show went from a random Canadian program on PopTV to being a must-see on many peoples television lists.
All 6 seasons of Schitt’s Creek are streaming right now on Netflix.
2. Console Wars (CBS All-Access)
This selection is actually two different types of entertainment: Book and Movie
If you are a fan of video games, which I would assume you might be because of GoodBadEh, you might love the behind the scenes of the video game industry. One of the books that really gives you the feeling that you are in those board rooms, is Console Wars.
Console Wars is about the war between Sega and Nintendo beginning from the end of the 80’s to the launch of the PlayStation 2 in the early 2000’s. Open this book and learn about master marketer Tom Kalinski and his journey from shoe advertisements, Barbie savior to CEO of Sega of America. This book shows you Sega coming to America and taking on Nintendo as the big name in the console business. If this book interests you, I highly recommend picking it up because you will learn so much about the industry that you love so much.
If you don’t feel like reading the book, or you have already read the book, you can check out the documentary Console Wars over on CBS All-Access. This documentary basically sums up the book in all of its parts. It doesn’t cover everything that is covered in the book but it does contain some interesting stories about the war between Mario and Sonic. I was a little disappointed by the movie because it should’ve been a little bit longer and go more in depth about certain aspects of the book, but just having the movie to watch was great and I hope that it leads to more stories from the video game industry.
You can buy Console Wars on Amazon, and check out Console Wars on CBS All-Access.
3. Ted Lasso (Apple TV+)
If you are wondering what it would be like for an American football coach to be selected as the Manager of a football club over in London, this is the show for you.
Starring Jason Sudeikis, as the warm hearted, mid western, kind soul Ted Lasso, he has the rough task of leading a Football club while having no experience in soccer coaching at all. While soccer is the main story for the series, you will become attached to each one of the characters as we learn about their struggles, and hardships and by the end of the show, you will be rooting for every character and maybe shed a few tears at certain moments. (I know I did)
If you have Apple TV+, you definitely MUST watch Ted Lasso. It is a heart warming show that will give you faith in people again. This is currently my Favorite Show of the Year and I don’t see that changing at all.
Well that is it for my Fall 2020 TV Recommendations, if you have already seen any of these shows, let me know what you thought of them by writing in the comments or sending a tweet to @GoodBadEh.
If you haven’t seen any of these shows, go check them out and let me know how you enjoyed it, or if you didn’t enjoy it.
