Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Non-English

Thursday Movie Picks

Another Television Edition and we’re back at it with Non-English shows. I love this theme because this has pushed me into watching more shows on Netflix. More diverse shows. And honestly, I didn’t have to even try this year. I had three picks ready and all of them made in Scandinavia. There was a plan to throw a Danish show into this list and make it a trifecta but I didn’t have time to see any. Though have no fear,…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween/Television Edition: Horror

Thursday Movie Picks

October wraps up with a halloween/television edition and I’ve really gone above and beyond for this. During this month I watched six new to me movies and now I’ve seen two new, one rewatched “mini-series” in the horror genre. Granted, two of these aren’t so horror after all but they are classified as such on IMDb. So this is more like a light halloween/television edition, horror elements but not scary-scary. Super proud of myself for seeing these shows because two…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Journalism

Thursday Movie Picks

Having to list something based on a theme you yourself recommended (journalism of course) is ironic. I’m was excited about journalism at the end of 2019 because I work in journalism. Also when I recommended this theme I had just seen one of my recommendations! Now many months later the plan I had has escaped me and now I don’t know what I was thinking. Anyway, here’s my three not so theme within theme recommendations. There is a bit of…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Prequel

Thursday Movie Picks

Sitting down for this week’s Thursday Movie Picks is actually making me anxious. Television Edition usually comes to me with a certain amount of ease but not this week. I cannot for the life of me remember any show that is a prequel. Yes, I know there are some, probably even a bunch but I can’t think of any. The problem of the prequel theme is that I have not seen them. So let’s see how this one turned out,…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: TV Series Based on Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

This week’s theme was a bit of a challenge for me. Television Edition weeks usually aren’t but there aren’t that many shows based on movies. If there are, I haven’t seen most of them, so there’s inevitably not a lot to choose from. I did go with movies I’ve seen and in one case, I’ve also seen the show. I think I’ve seen parts of one show but I can’t remember.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Book to TV Adaptations

Thursday Movie Picks

It’s that time of the month again where instead of movies I recommend TV shows. It’s always exciting but this month I get to talk about book to TV adaptations! Now, since I haven’t done this type of recommendation list before, I figured I could make this week even more special. So, instead of recommending adaptations that exist, I’m listing shows that are coming out in the (hopefully) near future. Since this pandemic is still affecting our lives and everything…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Competitive Reality Shows

Thursday Movie Picks

This week I felt like not aiming for a theme within a theme because all three of these are completely different. These are the three competitive reality shows I’ve watched more than a season worth, followed almost religiously at some point and all that I’ve lost interest in at the moment. So, I guess I do have a theme within a theme for this week. Anyway, these competitive reality shows are not even in the same ball park. They are…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Game Shows

Thursday Movie Picks

So let’s see. Game shows are television programs were people go and win money. There are many that have been adapted to various languages and I can name like a few that are still sort of going on in Estonia. But that’s the most I know about these because I rarely watch these types of shows. I can think of a few game shows that I’ve seen over the years, one that I really liked and there’s surprisingly a theme…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Docu series

Thursday Movie Picks

We have had one hell of a month and I don’t mean in terms of Thursday Movie Picks. I mean in regards to what’s happening in the world… With most of my Thursday Movie Picks having been scheduled for this month, it’s only now that I sit down to write this one in complete amazement. Something is literally taking over the world and putting it in standstill. It sounds like a scifi movie and not the fun kind. So in…
