Weekend #23 of 53 – 6/5-6/7/2020 for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service
The first of the month is here and talk about overload — in a good way — of new movies hitting all the services.
I’ve picked out a few from several different services, but there are a bunch of good to great to amazing movies available to watch, not to mention a weekend of new movies and TV shows hitting.
It’s pretty much impossible for any one person who doesn’t make this their job (we both have full time jobs that have nothing to do with this) to stay on top of what’s new on all the streaming services, so I’m thinking the current strategy is to just try and be aware of what’s out there by hitting the top 10 lists and seeing what the buzz is from social media, movie and TV bloggers and the news, plus of course word of mouth from others you know.
If there is something great you want to mention that is available this weekend, please use the comments below to talk about it. We need to help each other sift through the massive amount of content changing, rotating and coming out new.

- *Love Life – Season 1 – Episodes 4-6
Anna Kendrick, romance comedy – Original
- I May Destroy You – Season 1 – Episode 1 “Eyes, Eyes, Eyes, Eyes”
- Looney Tunes Cartoons (2020)
Watched Love Life starring Anna Kendrick the first three episodes last week and it covers her adventures trying to find and secure love. It’s an awkward and unusually paced TV show.
Not sure how much or even if I like it or not yet, but it manged to keep my interest through the first three episodes (it’s just comes off as an unusual way of watching someone trying to fall in love). The next three episodes (4-6) are dropping to check out, so will see how that goes.
