So tired I’m not even show how to function. Therefore I figured I was going for a title and Youtube video only this week but then I remembered, I actually have made a post similar to this theme TV Score and/or Theme Song. So if this sounds familiar, it’s because I copy-pasted my 2020 post called Top 5 TV-Show Theme Songs That I’m Currently Obsessed With. This list still counts because I like all these songs still. Anyway, these are theme songs I liked a year ago and still do. (Thank god, I didn’t have the brain power to think of anything new to say this week…)
Recently I discovered that I have been enjoying quite a lot of theme songs. Like, enjoying to a point where I don’t even fast forward the opening credits because I want to hear the song. So I wanted to share them with you guys. Which, ironically, makes this week very music oriented with Thursday Movie Picks focusing on unforgettable film scores. Anyway, here are five TV-show theme songs I’ve recently enjoyed and loved!
The summer of 2019 became a whole lot better when Stranger Things 3 aired and transported everyone back to the 80’s. The nostalgia, the adventure, the laughs, the terror and most importantly, the love. While season 3 might be following the familiar patterns of previous seasons, it still delivers one hell of an emotional rollercoaster. Here is my attempt to capture all of that into words.
It’s finally time for my first Stranger Things related post this summer. First, before I get to my lengthy season 3 review, I’m bringing you my five favourite episodes from the show so far. So all three seasons are a fair game but I’m picking just five – so you can imagine how difficult this actually was! Like, I really had to crack my brain to narrow it down to five. But I did it and here is a chronological list of my five favourite episodes from all three Stranger Things seasons.
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.

My two week vacation is over but there’s not much to talk about it. I spent most of my time writing posts, watching Netflix and reading. For me, the time spent just organising my life and getting on track with things, is vacation worthy. I’m just really good at doing something, while seemingly doing nothing at all. It’s a gift, I know.
Finally, the moment where I can breathe during October because I know what to recommend without thinking that hard about it. And even though these picks aren’t really surprising, they all have had a really strong season or a few under their belt. Plus some very terrifying moments.
Technically, Netflix didn’t get me by the balls because I have none but it felt like the best possible phrasing for this week’s Commercial Break. Why? Well, I imagine it’s like that feeling of somebody holding your boobs for a really long time, at first you’re like “yes, finally some action”! So you let it happen for a few hours but around hour 8 you start to resent this act of your boobs being held and yourself as well but you feel like once it stops, you’ll feel worse. What I’m saying is that I should have renamed the title to “Netflix Got Me By the Boobs”.
Last year I mentioned Comic-Con in my Commercial Break but I’m upping my game this year and dedicating an entire post to it! That’s right, a post filled with stuff that was released during Comic-Con! This post will cover mostly trailer reactions, good and bad, and a few panel discussions, those of which I was the most interested in. And as it turns out I was rather interested in a lot of things, because there are 20 talking points total! Good luck!
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 happy this year.
