what to watch now

What To Watch Now // A Style Caddy

Fun fact about me, I watch way more things online than I do on TV. Sure I'm dedicated to some shows, but if I can watch it online, I prefer to do that. 

1. The People vs. O.J. Simpson on FX // When this happened in 1994, I was five so I don't recall much other than that it was a really big deal since I kept seeing his face on TV. I know the story now, but that doesn't make this series any less interesting and entertaining. While this is based on a true story, some creative license has been taken here so not every single detail is true. But the cast is excellent, which just adds to making this whole thing more captivating.

2. The Great British Baking Show on PBS/Netflix // As the title suggests, this is a British cooking show so not all of the seasons are available here in the US. There's one season available on Netflix and you might get lucky and catch others on PBS. I don't know what else to say about this other than it is so good. These home bakers really know their stuff, and they're always making things that I can only dream of becoming skilled at. If you love baking and cooking shows like I do, this one is a must-see!

3. Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father on Netflix // This documentary, also found on Netflix, is probably one of the toughest, saddest, and most shocking things you'll watch, but I promise it's a good one. The director set out to compile memories and stories about his friend Andrew Bagby, who had been killed by his ex-girlfriend Shirley Turner, to share with their son Zachary Turner. He was doing all of this while the trial against Turner was going on and his cinematic scrapbook ends up becoming a crime documentary. It'll make you angry and show that the legal system can sometimes be a total failure.

4. NCAA 2003 One Shining Moment // I was in 8th grade when this happened and Syracuse University and Carmelo Anthony weren't even on my radar. As a proud Orange alum, this "One Shining Moment" video brings me to tears. Seriously. I cried tears of joy watching this knowing that it was from Syracuse's one NCAA championship win. Ugh. It gets me every. single. time.

5. Six Amazing Places That Inspired Disney Movies // I am a huge Disney fan so anytime I see a video about Disney World, Disneyland, Disney movies, I'm all about it. If you have ever wondered where they get their inspiration for the castles they feature in movies and at the parks, then watch this video. Those castles exist in real life and I think we should all book flights to visit every single one.

6. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Donald Trump on HBO // If you are a supporter of Donald Trump, you probably won't like this but you should watch it anyway. And if you're not a supporter of Donald Trump, then watch it. That's all I have to say here.

7. WEEDIQUETTE: Stoned Kids // Vice has a new TV channel called VICELAND. One of the shows that is premiering on this channel is WEEDIQUETTE, This first episode discusses medical marijuana as a cancer therapy, specifically for children. These kids are getting stoned - really, really stoned. There's not much evidence that this actually works, but parents are trying out this treatment anyway. The host, Krishna Andavolu, takes one-tenth of a dose and the effect is INSANE.

8. Tiger Woods Witness the First Ace at The Playgrounds // Tiger Woods has yet to make his return to golf, but he's been keeping busy with other things. Like designing his first golf course, Bluejack National in Texas. The course includes a shorter 10-hole course called The Playgrounds, and last Wednesday, Taylor Crozier was one of the lucky kids invited to play it. He took the first shot and ended up holing it in front of Tiger Woods!
