The Wonderful Things In Stranger Things 3

Tv-show

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.…

My Five Favourite Episodes of Stranger Things

Top 5 Tv-show

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…

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!…

CB: Strange Times & Stranger Thoughts

Extra

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.…

CB: Netflix Got Me By the Balls & Other Delights

Extra

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…

San Diego Comic-Con Highlights

Extra

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!…

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…

Thursday Movie Picks: Creature / Monster

Extra

This week features no aliens, no zombies, no vampires and no werewolves – so that pretty much leaves all those horror movies with scary creatures I really don’t watch. But I have seen some very good ghosts over the years, and one creature pops into my head as well, so lucky for me, I could compile the following list.…

The Wonderful Things in Stranger Things

Tv-show

The hype is real, and even though I was a little behind to get to the hype and stumbled on some spoilers beforehand, I didn’t mind because the show delivered beyond these spoilers. It has heart, emotion, friendship, determination and courage. And yes, Stranger Things is an absolutely wonderful series, with exceptional performances by kids inside a big homage to the 80’s.…
