Shows I'm Enjoying

April 2021

Here are a few shows I’ve been watching this month that I found particularly interesting (no major spoilers):

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

The dynamic between Sam (The Falcon) and James (The Winter Soldier) continues to grow on me. It’s nice to see a bromance (to use the term unironically) growing beyond the early puppy-love stages. Their emotional journeys also include some positive examples for masculinity.

Infinity Train

I finally started watching the series this week. Engrossing mystery. Emotional punches hitting hard in the very first season. Accessible episode sizes. I look forward to the rest of the show.

Jujutsu Kaisen

The writing on this anime continues to blow me away. The beats can be subtle but they land so well. Excellent pacing on the world-building, too. I can see myself going back and rewatching this with a notebook in hand. I’ll probably start on the manga before too long.

So I’m a Spider, So What?

Another ongoing anime with excellent writing. And I absolutely love the main character. Some impressive plot twists. I’m always clamoring for the next episode. I plan to start reading the light novel as soon as my girlfriend finishes with our copy.
