February in Review

🏆 Glass Onion is the longest chart resident of 2023

Hello, hello! Welcome back :) February was full of activity for me and I am very much looking forward to a quieter March. I’m hoping to start re-reading the Percy Jackson series this month since the first season of the show just wrapped filming. I’ll let you guys know where I’m at with them in April. Now, without further ado, here’s February in Review.

Today’s feeling: Tired 😴

You and Your Father top the TV charts

Looking ahead at the charts for February, How I Met Your Father sticks out as an audience favorite, never dropping below 3rd place on the board. I didn’t realize how popular the show was, but I’m happy to see Hilary Duff get a win after Disney squashed our Lizzie McGuire reboot hopes.

Arguably one of the bigger releases of the month, Netflix released the first part of You’s 4th season. I’ve heard less than stellar things about this section of the series, though, so sorry to all of my You stans. I hope part two makes up for it later this month.

February TV

Shrinking slithers through to prove it might just be worth watching

In February, five shows clung to the rankings from start to finish:

I saw a glimpse of the trailer for Shrinking and thought it was interesting enough. Then, I found out that it was created by Brett Goldstein, who produces and writes for Ted Lasso. Oh, and who also, by the way, plays THE Roy Kent. Needless to say, I will be watching Shrinking at some point.

National Treasure and Mythic Quest win the marathon

Our longtime friend National Treasure: Edge of History finally discovered its last bit of gold, dropping out of the chart in the 3rd week of February.

It now shares the Marathoner 🏃🏾‍♀️ title with Mythic Quest, both lasting for a current TV record of 9 weeks. (MQ fell off the chart last month, but its crown is still valid.)

Servant and Wolf Pack hop in and out

Servant and Wolf Pack are our TV Leap Frogs 🐸 for the month, both shows dropping, returning, and then dropping again.

Originally, I assumed Wolf Pack was a Teen Wolf: The Movie spinoff, with the two releasing at the same time and everything being related to something nowadays. But it’s not.

The only things they share are their creator, crew, and Atlanta studio lots. And being about teen wolves. So, not a ton in common, really.

Wakanda Forever holds strong while Ant-Man says a quick hello on the movie charts

It was a glorious Black History Month for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the film maintaining a top 3 position all month. And if Angela Bassett takes home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress next weekend, it’ll be a lovely Women’s History Month cherry on top.

Ant-Man and the Wasp briefly pops up on the chart, with people either prepping for Quantumania’s release that weekend or going back to figure out how these two films are in fact part of the same trilogy. Either way, good for Scott.

February Movies

5 movies slinked around the charts all month

Another three snakes joined the snake pit:

  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

  • You People

  • Shotgun Wedding

And January’s winners, The Menu and Glass Onion, stuck around as Serpents 🐍 for February.

Bullet Train speeds away and Glass Onion endures

After 9 (it’s always 9) non-stop weeks, Bullet Train jumps off the chart and also secedes its Marathoner 🏃🏾‍♀️ crown. Glass Onion now holds the title as the longest-running film on this chart, currently at 10 weeks.

Bullet Train, Black Adam, and Strange World leapt on and off

It’s not all bad news for Bullet Train, sort of. It joins the ranks as a Leap Frog 🐸, dropping out in the first weekend of February, coming back in the second, and dropping again in the third.

Black Adam and Strange World also earn their Leap Frog statuses, hopping back onto the charts after we lost them in January, but only to fall off once again. It’s a frog-eat-frog world we live in, folks.

This month: theaters are busy, but TV dominates at home

Summer movie season—which refers to the trend of big blockbusters releasing throughout the summer—typically starts in May, but this year? It’s starting in March, with release dates for huge titles like Scream VI, Shazam: Fury of the Gods, and John Wick 4 sprinkled across the upcoming weekends.

But don’t forget about streaming! There’s enough TV coming this month to make your head spin, new and returning series alike.

March Releases

Some of the most anticipated returns (for me, but also for the masses, too) include Succession’s fourth season, Ted Lasso season 3, and, of course, The Mandalorian season 3. I’m counting on a quick recap for Mando, though, because I’m not going back to finish season 2.5 AKA The Book of Boba Fett.

Movie releases are a little slim this month, but there’s still plenty to look forward to. Best picture contender Triangle of Sadness is on Hulu now, just ahead of the Oscars, which airs on the 12th. Tetris, the absolutely insane-looking movie that’s about the game but also the Cold War, somehow, is coming to Apple TV+ on the 23rd.

The Beefcake Brawler that is Creed 3 is out in theaters today, but if you need a refresher, the first Creed is now available to stream on HBO Max.

My most anticipated release in March is Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. It’s partially because I love anything fantasy and it looks pretty cool. But more importantly, it’s because the definitive Best Chris, Chris Pine, is starring and I will watch whatever he’s a part of.

🎤 What are you most excited for in March?
