I have to admit, I am always late when it comes to watching trending shows. I’m not sure why… but then again, I don’t typically watch a lot of TV. Honestly, when I do start watching something, I do like to binge it. But then I hate waiting for another season. By the time the next season comes out, I have forgotten how the previous season ended. Anyway, I figured today, I’d share a little “What’s Cody Watching” with you.
Finding New Shows
I recently finished up a few seasons of shows I’d been really into. That left me wondering… what should I watch now? While I don’t always watch a lot of TV, I do like to have a show on deck to watch while I’m on the treadmill. Having a show to distract me really helps when I’m putting in some miles on the treadmill. It’s a good distraction! In the past, I’ve binged shows like Schitt’s Creek, New Girl, and Grace & Frankie. I really like having light-hearted shows that don’t require much thought. Because I can’t keep up with all the details while huffing through my runs! Haha.
Since I got caught up on all the series I’d been watching, I started looking for something yesterday. I usually stumble upon things that might be interesting, and I’ll add them to my list on Netflix. And I don’t always remember what or why I saved them… but I was scrolling through that list yesterday and Inventing Anna caught my eye.
What’s Cody Watching? Inventing Anna
I’ve heard very little about the show, which apparently released in February 2022. The thing that caught my attention most is that this is based on a true story. I love movies and shows that are based on real life things. I’m actually a BIG lover of true crime, so I’m all about crime documentaries! But with Inventing Anna, I know it’s probably a good bit different than the actual story.
Another thing that peaked my interest is that it was created by Shonda Rhimes! And if you don’t know who that is… she’s responsible for shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How To Get Away With Murder. While I got WAY behind when watching Grey’s… I did LOVE How To Get Away With Murder. Oh, and BRIDGERTON, which I absolutely LOVE! So, I figured I liked Rhimes’ other work, I had to give Inventing Anna a chance!
How It’s Going
Well, I just started watching it yesterday! So I’m just over one episode in. So far, I am intrigued. Again, I know this is just “inspired” by the real Anna Delvey (Sorokin), but it has me wanting to learn a bit more about the REAL story! There are a lot of moving pieces in the story so far, with all of the people Anna was connected to. Interested to see how that plays out!
I will say, Julia Garner is a great actress! I remember seeing her in Dirty John. So it’s interesting to see her in this role. I know many people love her in Ozark (which is another show I have yet to watch… I know, I know!).
The only bad part about the show? It’s a limited miniseries! That means, once I’m done binging, I’ll be looking for the next show to watch. Which, let’s be honest, needs to be Yellowstone!
In case you haven’t heard of, or watched Inventing Anna yet.. here’s the official Netflix Trailer!
So, soon, the question will be… What’s Cody Watching… NEXT?
