This is fair game because I share my HBO Max with many people. I have separate profiles; one for me (that my girlfriend also uses), one for my friends and one for my family. They all know the rules to not share it with anyone else, and if they do, they get banned. They need to get off when I want to get on and too many people are using the app. They know not to use my profile…at least some do.

Sometime earlier this year, someone among my trusted group went onto my profile and began watching things I not watch. I am sorry to Shakira and her Shakira In Concert: El Dorado World Tour movie, but I do not want that on my “continue watching” list. I am OCD about my watch list and “continue watching” list. Someone broke that rule. I think I know who…but he shall remain nameless for now.


Under “Continue Watching”
  • Sex In The City
    • My girlfriend is watching this show but she had to take a break because she should not handle any more of Sarah Jessica Parker’s character.
  • The Jinx
    • Awesome documentary. Whomever is watching this didn’t even get to the end which has the a mic drop moment! Whoever is watching this…finish !
  • The Sopranos
    • I mean, I get it. I haven’t seen The Sopranos, but I am the one who is in the wrong there.
  • Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1
    • Was someone going through a Harry Potter marathon and just didn’t finish? This is a weird one to start and not finish; like most people watch this one just to get to part two.
  • The Big Bang Theory
    • Ugh. Don’t approve of this.
  • Pride & Prejudice
    • Pride & Prejudice is an all-time romantic movie for this generation. It is super sad and super sappy and super entertaining.
Under “My List”
  • NOTHING??? How is no one curating a list of things that they must watch?? This is insane to me. Like if you are watching Sex In The City, you should put in on the list till you are done with it. Same for any TV show really. This is blasphemous, abhorrent, sinful and outlandish behavior.


Under “Continue Watching”
  • The Wire
    • I know that my buddy is watching this and is finishing the show after starting it. It is a good decision by this friend. Have zero qualms here.
  • Friends
    • This has to be my buddy and his wife. They are the only two people I know who watch this show as comfort.
  • Insecure
    • I have heard only good things about this show and my girlfriend is a fan too despite falling behind on it. I think this is the last season airing, so whomever is watching this is looking to catch up.
  • Game Of Thrones
    • Not surprised to see this on the list. I am thinking whoever was watching was only looking to go back and watch just one scene and then didn’t wanna finish the episode.
Under “My List”
  • The Outsider
    • This was a very fun show. I loved this show. It was eerie. It was creepy. It was well acted and very well paced. Whoever is watching this should start right away.
  • What Happened, Brittany Murphy
    • I had no idea what this was but once I read the description I got somewhat interested. It is one of those things that I wouldn’t be upset if my girlfriend starting watching it.
  • FBoy Island
    • Confession. I have this is my watchlist as well for when I wanna act like an idiot.
  • The Sopranos
    • Someone wants to begin this but just hasn’t gotten there yet. Again, can find no ill will.
  • Succession
    • I want to start watching this show but haven’t caved out the time yet. I have third this third season is not the best thing in the world but it is still above the rest.
  • The White Lotus
    • I have this in my own watchlist as well, but I have heard you will either love this show or hate this show.


Under “Continue Watching”
  • Sex In The City
    • My girlfriend is watching this show but she is on hiatus to protest Sarah Jessica Parker.
  • The Wire
    • We are watching this as a couple, my girlfriend and I, and we just finished season two. We are going to watch The Witcher season two when it comes out and then return to The Wire.

Grading All The Contestants That Were On “Bachelor In Paradise”

Bachelor In Paradise ended in late November, and thank god it did. I’ll say it, 16 episodes is far too much. But with the mission ended and plenty of drama to unpack, it is time to reflect on everyone who took the sandy beaches of Mexico by storm. These are my purely subjective grades on […]
