‘The Synanon Fix’ 🌟 — April 1

What began as a drug rehabilitation organization quickly became a religious movement. Their leader was Charles Diedrich, a former alcoholic who believed drug rehabilitation could be completed with self-reliance and accountability. Throughout the docuseries, former members will reflect and speak about their experiences in Synanon. “The Synanon Fix” is at the top of my April watchlist.

‘Brandy Hellville & the Cult of Fast Fashion’ 🎞️ — April 9

During my college years, Brandy Melville was a popular brand, and as I’ve grown older, I’ve forgotten about it — until now. “Brandy Hellville and the Cult of Fast Fashion” exposes the clothing company for what it really is: irresponsible. The brand promoted an unhealthy self-image for girls as well as unsavory hiring and employment practices. In addition, “fast fashion” has far-reaching consequences. Prepare for a mic drop of epic proportions.

‘The Sympathizer’ 🌟 — April 14

Based on Viet Thanh Nguyen's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name, “The Sympathizer” is a black comedy, drama, and historical thriller wrapped into one miniseries. Nearing the end of the Vietnam War, a soldier planted in the South Vietnam army flees to the U.S. Once there, he takes residence in a refugee community, but his job isn’t over. He continues to collect intelligence, passing it on to the Viet Cong.

I’m excited to see “The Sympathizer,” which has a wonderful cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Sandra Oh, and Hoa Xuande.

‘Conan O’Brien Must Go’ 📺 — April 18

If you’ve listened to Conan O’Brien’s podcast “Conan Needs a Friend,” you’ll love this new show. In “Conan O’Brien Must Go,” Conan hits the road to meet the people he engaged with during the podcast. He has in-depth conversations with them and makes new friends during his travels. Honestly, I was sold on the show purely from the photo of Conan dressed as a Viking.

‘We’re Here’ 🎥 — April 26

The beloved reality show “We’re Here” is back for a fourth season with a new set of hosts. These divas travel across America, putting on one-night-only shows in small towns, helping their “drag daughters” find themselves and their voices. They spread love and understanding everywhere they go, hoping they can open people's minds and hearts. Who doesn’t love a good drag show, especially when its aim is compassion and growth? It’s a yas for us.
