(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Series: Pet Stars
Where You Can Stream It: Netflix
The Pitch: A docuseries that follows Colleen Wilson and Melissa May Curtis as they run Pets on Q, a talent agency for pets. Yes, really, that’s it. It’s delightful.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: I don’t know about you, but I find myself more and more often turning to harmless, simple entertainment these days. Don’t get me wrong: I still watch serious stuff. But as I seek out distractions from the hell that is reality, I find comfort in shows like Pet Stars. It’s not intellectually challenging. It’s not even particularly great. And that’s fine. It made me laugh and it showed me cute animals, and sometimes that’s enough.
