I’m addicted to TV-shows. That’s such an obvious statement but it’s the truth. I also love to ship characters and sometimes my favourite couples just don’t work out. So today for 10 For 10 I want to share 10 TV couples who I think deserved better. In other words, I think these shows messed up and I don’t like it. Mostly because these couples weren’t the end game and I wanted very much them to be.
A little bit weird is good, it’s almost healthy to be a little weird because then you end up standing out from the crowd. Too much weird, and you might end up in a locked room. The fact that there is a very fine line separating the weird and the crazy in the following shows, is what makes them great.
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 characters who are likeable and precious on their own right. But before I get to the very long and complicated journey of trying to understand The OA, here is my spoiler free take on Santa Clarita Diet.
This week is going to be a lot better than the last one. Why? Because I got to go to the film quiz thingie today (we were dumb and all the questions I got right were about movies from the 21st century), I only have to work two days this week, I’m getting a new tattoo on Saturday AND I have the joy of getting a year older to “enjoy” on Sunday. Granted, the birthday part isn’t as good because once you get past a certain point in your adult life, you start to resent your birthday a little. I’m past that point. So I don’t even have plans for Sunday, which I guess is a little sad but I’m just going to wake up and see what the day will bring!
