The ReWatchable team suits up for our first big game under the lights. We're talking all things Pitch season 1, episode 1 on this week's episode!

Superfans: Danielle and Ariana
Newbies: Kendra, Natalie and Brittany

Fun Facts:
Brittany rented and watched the 2020 Emma adaptation approximately six times in the 48-hour rental window. Let us know your favorite Knightly in the ReWatchable ReWinders group! Ariana began watching Greek and it's wonderful because the stakes are just so, so low. Natalie has not read the Austen books, but she does love the films! Now might be the time to read the text plus they are free all over! Kendra is watching Succession and everyone is horrible except for Greg and Tom. They are good boys. Danielle is reading a book called Crave and it sounds like a parody of Twilight.
