First Impressions: Killing Eve & The Bold Type

Another round of first impressions! This time, as you have probably already guessed from the title, it's about BBC America's Killing Eve and FreeForm's The Bold Type! These are my thoughts on the pilots of these two shows. I didn't research them or tried to find out a lot because of spoilers. My opinions are [...]

First Impressions: The Alienist & Riverdale

I'm back with another round of first impressions! I did one of these "series" in January of this year. I love finding new tv shows to watch and so I reviewed the pilots I watched based only on the first impression I had of them. It was lots of fun and so I decided to [...]

“We’re Gonna Rise up” – Rise – First Impression Review (Pilot)

“Rise” aired right after a quite cheesy and easily predictable finale of “This is us”. I won't go into it. I still haven't processed it and it's been more than a week since then. The first impression I got from "Rise" was of a scrappy, not at all polished cinematography. Which is exactly what I [...]

“American Crime Story: The Assassination Of Gianni Versace” – First Impression Review

Although “American crime story: the assassination of John Versace“ aired on FX in mid January, I have only just recently decided to give it a go. Last year, I watched season one of Brian Murphy is “The People v. O.J. Simpson“ and I found that extremely fascinating and interesting. I had quite high hopes this [...]

“Find Me Some Killgrave! NOW!” – Jessica Jones Season 2 First Impression

Ok, I knew it. Killgrave wasn't going to be in the season because Jessica killed him. I am not delusional. I was expecting more flashbacks or other cinematic tricks to have more David Tennant on my screen. He is my favourite person in the entire world. I would marry him in a heart beat (if [...]

First Impressions: January Pilots – Part 3: Glow & 30 Rock

Here we are with part 3 of my January Pilots! I've had a blast watching these pilots. Some have been great and some have left me disappointed, but nonetheless it's been exciting. GLOW Glow has been on Netflix since June 23rd 2017 and I had little to no interest in watching it. My best friend [...]

First Impressions: January Pilots – Part 2: The Good Place & The Resident

This was supposed to be a single post, but then I realised I watched so many pilots! I love pilots. They have to capture the audience's attention and get us interested in watching the following episodes. It's so confusing: you don't know the characters, you don't understand what's going on and you're trying to figure [...]

First Impressions: January Pilots – Part 1: Grown-ish & Alone Together

Along with september and october, January is the month in which TV shows come back from their holiday hiatus. Tv series start again, new pilots air and the spring/summer season begins. Today, I'm reviewing two pilots: "Grown-ish", ABC's "Black-ish" spin-off that follows Zoey as she embarks on her journey through college and "Alone Together", a [...]

The Night Of – First Impressions

I've been wanting to get to this show for quite some time but other thing came in the way. HBO is famous for its heavy-themed and dark shows and this does not disappoint. I knew very little about "The Night Of", I didn't know the actors and even the plot was unfamiliar to me. I [...]

Big Little Lies – First Impression

I've just finished watching HBO's "Big Little Lies" as part of my ongoing series of "shows I need to see before the Emmys" and I loved it. Starring Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and Reese Witherspoon, it's based on the namesake book written by Liane Moriarty. Before watching the pilot, I knew very little about it. [...]

Trying Something New

I simply wasn't watching enough television. So, of course, I had to start watching 3 other pilots. Well, 2 actually. I have already finished the 10 episodes of "Good Behavior". And I have written and published an extremely long review that you can find here. Anyway, I wanted to do this properly... Start in September [...]
