Otherwise known as the month I fell in love with The Queen’s Gambit.

The Queen’s Gambit – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Decorating Disney: Holiday Magic – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Fives across the board! Seriously my TV choices this month were *chef’s kiss*. Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso was so genuine and hilarious. He could have easily been annoying with how positive and optimistic he always was, but through moments of vulnerability, the character showed depth and range. I can’t wait for the next season. I decided to watch a special on decorating the Disney Parks for the holidays. I thought it would make me happy, but it just made me depressed and miss Disney, big time. Living in LA for most of my life and a lover of comedy, I thought I knew all about The Comedy Store, but I was seriously mistaken. Learning the history of this iconic place and all the famous faces that came out of there was so much fun—I could have watched 10 more episodes. I’m going to share my thoughts on The Queen’s Gambit in a separate post.

Oh my God, if you want to watch the craziest movie about a defunct amusement park, head over to HBO Max and watch Class Action Park. Profiling the New Jersey amusement park, Action Park, this documentary takes you through the history of this train wreck from the 80’s. Not to spoil anything but as a teaser, expect: snakes in the water, drunk teens working the rides, and a deadly wave pool. Dance Dreams made me feel so good. It’s a documentary about The Debbie Allen Dance Academy and her original take on The Nutcracker. I’ve taken classes at DADA and had friends in the Hot Chocolate Nutcracker. It was so heartwarming to learn about the creation of the production and the dancers that star. I talked all about my feelings for The Orange Years last week and you can find that right here.
Did you watch anything good this month? Tell me about it!
