My thoughts

Disney+ is seeing a lot of material come out in March. The return of “The Mandalorian” is their main headliner for the month. I haven’t watched the first two seasons, though did get through part of season 1. I do hope to get around to watching the rest (eventually?).

“Moon Girl” is getting more episodes, joining the first half-dozen that debuted in February. I watched those episodes, and enjoyed what I saw. (More thoughts to come in a future post.)

“Eureka!” is a Disney Junior show about a young Black girl named Eureka, who lives in a “Flintstones”-like prehistoric world. That is, dinosaurs coexisting with mammoths and modern-acting cavepeople; objects made out of rocks, bamboo, vines, and wood; and “prehistoric” versions of modern animals. Eureka enjoys inventing various things to make life for her family, friends, and village easier, or to solve a problem.

On Hulu, the Oscars will be available on the service the day after the ceremony. I’ll write about the animation-related winners as usual, but I don’t have plans to watch it. I wrote about the Oscars’ many flaws last year; but overall, barring some surprise (that doesn’t involve anyone slapping the show’s host), I think my patience has run out. Thus, I’ll just watch something else on Oscar night, and check the winners for the only categories I care about: the animation-related ones and Best Picture.

On Paramount+, another season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is coming. Those with the Premium tier will also get CBS’ broadcasts of the NCAA men’s basketball playoffs, aka “March Madness” (more on sports below).

March brings “March Madness,” which, like in previous years, is mostly airing on a mix of broadcast and cable networks.

Apple is launching Major League Soccer (MLS) Season Pass as a live sports streaming service through the Apple TV app. There’s also an option to bundle it with the Apple TV+ streaming service. One advantage of this service over other sports leagues’ similar services (or ESPN+): no local team blackouts.

T-Mobile users, as well as customers of their prepaid subsidiary Metro, can get a free year of MLS Season Pass. This is how I got access to Season Pass. I’ll see what the service is like, and maybe cover it in a future post.
