5 Shows I Stopped Watching But Am Thinking About Catching Up With

Tv-show

We lack the time to watch everything we want to, we have to prioritise and that is why I skimmed down my weekly TV schedule over the years. I just wanted to replace shows with books, and with that, I stopped watching bad TV, mediocre shows and even some good ones. Also, I’m much better with binge watching so sticking to something every week feels too stressful. Yet, there have been regrets, and here is a list of five shows…

10 Shows I Recently Binge-Watched On Netflix

Tv-show

As promised a while ago, I’m going to try and put out more content related to television shows. I have been watching a lot of shows, like a lot! Yet I haven’t been keeping up with sharing those binge-worthy experiences here on my blog. So may it be a whole season, or the entire show, I’m hereby sharing 10 shows that I recently indulged on thanks to Netflix.…

The Crown, Season 1: A Daughter, A Sister, A Wife & A Queen

Tv-show

Nothing expresses the dynamic of the show better than the image above. Together, yet distant, is how the relationships in the royal family feel like. Not only among the parents and their children, not just between the siblings. But most importantly, between a wife and a husband. The Crown does a brilliant job at delivering one of the most important history lessons! All while keeping the integrity and the intrigue well contained in a binge worthy package.…

Manhunt: Unabomber (Mini-series)

Tv-show

Those, who have wondered over to this part of the Internet, and have stumbled onto my review should know that I have a fascination towards serial killers. Shows such as Criminal Minds, CSI and Mindhunter are exactly the kind of shows that feed my curiosity, Zodiac and Se7en being among my favourite films. But none of those have achieved quite that level of emotional confusion which Manhunt: Unabomber managed to deliver. This review sort of contains spoilers.…

The Wonderful Things in Stranger Things 2

Tv-show

Like many of you, I spent my entire weekend in the Stranger Things world. At first, I planned to only rewatch the pilot episode, but then I kept going and before I knew it, I had rewatched the entire first season. Feeling emotionally trained, and positively charged with emotions, I then continued with the second season. That is a lot of Stranger Things for two days but I regret nothing. This post contains massive spoilers!…

Ozark (Season 1)

Tv-show

Before watching Ozark, I thought Mindhunter was definitely going to win my number one spot for best Netflix show of the year. Granted, there are still many promising first place contenders coming up (Stranger Things 2, The Punisher), but I didn’t expect Ozark to push Mindhunter of its pedestal so quickly. Should have seen it coming though, since I’ve always had a soft spot for Jason Bateman, and his character Martin Byrde is especially intriguing.…

Mindhunter (Season 1)

Tv-show

It’s been a while since I sat down, watched a show, and felt inspired to discuss it. It’s also been a while since a show has managed to be so interesting that I’ve stopped scrolling through Tumblr while watching it (I have a problem focusing on only one thing at the time). Yet Mindhunter managed to do both, all while showing me the beginning of criminal profiling – something that I have always had a personal interest towards.…

Glow (Season 1)

Tv-show

Netflix has become like that family member who keeps showing up at family gatherings and taking the spotlight from everyone else because it’s Netflix, and that’s what Netflix does. In other words, Netflix has come out with another original show, shocker, right? And while I still haven’t finished watching 13 Reasons Why, I’ve now watched through all 10 episodes of Glow. Here are my random thoughts on the series I ended up not loving.…

Santa Clarita Diet (Season 1)

Tv-show

It has been ages since I was thrilled about a TV show and dedicated a full post to it and now I have two I want to talk about – The OA and Santa Clarita Diet. Both are Netflix shows, I saw both ages ago, both have just 10 episodes in their first season and both are weird and quirky in their own special way. One has more unknown names and the other has bigger stars but both have teenage…

Histology of 2016: Part 2

Extra Tv-show

Looking back, I’d like to think that 2016, despite its flaws, had some really great things to offer. There’s no denying that these great things were sometimes overshadowed by the turmoil of life, but at the same time, these good things made 2016 a lot more tolerable in the long run. But before I get to my favourite books and best movies of 2016, I want to look back at some of the songs and TV shows that made me…
