I’m branching out this year and discovering new things. One of these things is something I’ve had a bit of interest in the past but never really explored. That is the k-drama genre! I’m currently already watching my second one so I thought why not review the first ever k-drama I saw: Extraordinary You. Haven’t written any reviews in ages so I’m not even sure if I know how to. But I will try to do justice for Extraordinary You which was actually very good and sweet (even though I have nothing to compare it to).
I’m sure I’m not the only one who generally picks a bad guy over the good one. Since I can remember I’ve gravitated towards bad guys in everything: movies, TV shows, books and even in real life. There’s something mysterious and almost dangerous about a bad guy that draws a person in. But when a really good guy, a guy like Ted Lasso, comes along… should an exception be made?
Netflix’s hit show Elite has been on my mind recently and I’m hoping I’m not the only one. This show is a little crazy and a bit all over the place but I love it. I love its characters, its mysteries and the over the top drama that I’m now apparently addicted to. But like with many Netflix shows there’s not a lot of information regarding Elite Season 4 – the upcoming season. So I figured I’d spend some time doing what I do best – scroll through the internet. Here’s what I found and also what I predict will happen in Season 4 of Elite.
Can’t believe it’s already February and I haven’t really reviewed anything. Part of me wanted to kick off 2021 strong and get more into reviews as they are technically my favourite things to write. Starting very late but let’s see how long this momentum will last. First thing I want to review this year is Alice in Borderland. It is the most popular Japanese Original live action title on Netflix. And I’m not gonna beat around the bush – I love Alice in Borderland!
As you can remember I promised to list ALL the shows I watched in 2020 in January. Well I got a bit carried away and now it’s February.. but it’s never too late! There’s going to be A LOT of different things here and Part 2 will contain mostly my favourites. I do know the Golden Globe nominations at this point but those comments shall be reserved for a podcast episode. Trust me, I will have a lot to say! Anyway, take a look at all the shows I watched in 2020 Part 2!
This theme comes at a right time because I’m now remembering something… I was supposed to upload Part 2 of all the stuff I saw on TV last year. (Part one is here.) My brain has been a mess and I forgot so now there’s going to be three freshmen series here that will be also included in the Part 2. So this is sort of like a sneak peak. Oh by the way, if this sounds rushed, it’s because it is and I’m desperately trying to get this freshmen series post done so I could watch season 3 of Good Girls and cry while they fuck up the story lines. The script has already burned me at this point and I’m currently half way through its third season.
As you can probably tell by the title I’m gathering up ALL the shows I watched in 2020. Not just the full on TV-shows but also miniseries and documentary miniseries as well. There’s going to be A LOT of different things here which is why it’s also divided into two parts. It’s not technically a worst to best list but Part 2 will contain 15 of my favourites. The main idea is just to show you guys that I watched a lot of things last year but I didn’t really write about them. Also it’s a great way to ignore the Best of 2020 lists for a little while longer.
In the beginning I wanted to review three seasons of The Sinner all separately but then I went on and binged all of it in a few days. In other words, it made sense to talk about each season of The Sinner in one post. This one will most likely be a bit of a long one so grab some coffee, take your time and let’s bring on the sinners.
Talk about a perfect timing. Love, Victor came around during Pride month and was available to me during my vacation. I binged it in one sitting while puzzling in the yard (yes, I’m that b*tch). I loved the movie Love, Simon (review HERE) which this show is a spin-off for. So yes, I went in with certain expectations. Some were met, others not. Here are my thoughts on Love, Victor – a show that is not just about finding yourself but realising that others might be finding themselves as well.
When my vacation officially started mid Sunday afternoon, I decided to spend my first vacation evening with Alex Rider. A teenager who was unbeknownst to him trained to be a MI6 spy by his uncle. The show is based on Anthony Horowitz’ popular book series and there’s that 2006 awful movie Stormbreaker. But now we have turned a new page and have an Amazon Prime series. Guys, it’s a pretty solid treat!
