Single Parents’ Frenetic Dialogue, Inclusivity, Comedy and its Debunk of Toxic Masculinity are a Joy to Watch

Elizabeth Meriwether's "Single Parents" transports you into a world of cute kids, the hardship of being a single parent and the ridiculousness that only a comedy can guarantee. And I've had a blast immersing myself in this world for the past year. I had lots of reasons to be interested in the show, from Taram [...]

I Am Emotionally Devastated by Stranger Things 3

I am still in pain. After the credits of the last episode rolled on, I laid in bed for about 20 minutes, tears running down my face and neck, staring at the ceiling. It was painful and emotionally devastating. Two years after releasing its second installment, Stranger Things is back: grosser and more hilarious than [...]

I’m 14 Books Behind and I Feel (not so) Fine

It's true. I'm 14 books behind on my Goodreads 2019 challenge and I don't feel so good about that. Last year I read 38 books! And the year before that, 55! I thought I was getting back into my groove but apparently, I'm not. And it's not a nice feeling. I am watching a record-breaking [...]

New TV shows I’ve Watched this Summer

Summer is over. Gone. In the blink of an eye, we have found ourselves deep into September (during an unusual heat wave. sothanks climate change) and now we're already at the end of October! And although I have definitely watched a lot less television than previous years, I have managed to go through a fair [...]

Why Derry Girls Makes you Laugh like Crazy and Cry like a Baby

I am in love with this show. Utterly in love. It's so funny, weird and over the top. Derry Girls is about a group of girls (and James) from Northern Ireland in the early 1990s and their school and relationship problems. It is so funny. I got an email notification from Netflix when it came [...]

TV Fall Premieres 2019 – Pilots I’m Watching – Stumptown – s01 ep01 – “Forget It Dex, It’s Stumptown.” – PILOT – MINI REVIEW

As I was writing the title of the episode, there was only one thing in my mind: Jokes aside, I really enjoyed the pilot. As soon as I saw that Cobie Smulders and Jake Johnson were involved, I knew I was going to watch this. Stumptown is about an army veteran who becomes a Private [...]

TV Fall Premieres 2019 – MINI REVIEWS – “Emergence” and “Perfect Harmony”

Two more mini-reviews! Although "Perfect Harmony" was in my Pilots-I'm-Watching list and "Emergence" was in my Pilot-Maybes, I decided to put them together. I was so surprised by one of them. And it might not be the one we're thinking about. ABC EMERGENCE I was intrigued by this. I really was. Now I want to [...]

TV Fall Premieres 2019 – Pilots I’m Watching– MINI REVIEWS: “Sunnyside”

Michael Schur is a producer, Morgan Sackett is a producer, David Miner is a producer. IT’S THE WHOLE TEAM! The team that brought to you Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Good Place. Castin by Allison Jones. Kal Penn is in it. One of the most, if not THE MOST, diverse cast in television. [...]

TV Fall Premieres 2019 – My Pilot Maybes – MINI REVIEWS: “Mixed-ish”

Spending all night watching Tv pilots might be the best possible use of my time. Sadly, life and responsibilities often get in the way and it gets impossible for me to "waste" four hours in front of my laptop. But I made a promise to myself: I will get through all of them. And reviews [...]

TV Fall Premieres 2019 – My Pilot Maybes – MINI REVIEWS: “All Rise” and “Bluff City Law”

Here we are again, another round of first impressions. It's the end of September, new pilots are coming out and for a TV junkie like me, it's heaven. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the pilots I was going to watch even if I didn't really think I was going to like them. [...]

What’s New? – TV Fall Premieres 2019 – My Pilot Maybes

I compiled my lists of shows I will watch and those I won’t. And so I was left with “maybes”, series that don’t speak to me, that I am not that interested it. I’ll probably watch the pilots and we’ll see! I might find some hidden gems. Let’s check them out! ABC EMERGENCE September 24th [...]

What’s New? – TV Fall Premieres 2019 – Pilots I’m Snubbing

Second installment of my TV FALL PREMIERES 2019 series! The first post was about the shows I'm curious to see, while this one focuses on those I'm not interested in. If you want to, you can download TVLine.com's calendar, I've finished colour coding it and I've been using it for 3 years now. It's great [...]

What’s New? – TV Fall Premieres 2019 – Pilots I’m Planning To Watch

It's back. Fall Premiere season is back and I'm... not as excited as I was last year. I don't know why but I have just downloaded TVLine.com's calendar, I haven't even finished colour coding it (this year it's all pastel and I love it) but I did watch the trailers of most of the new [...]

What’s Coming Back in September 2019 – The Good Place, Modern Family, A Million Little Things and more!

Ah, September is here. Ironically, it's one of my favourite months of the year: it's Pilot Season Premiere. Even though school is back, responsibilities are hanging over your head and the summer weather is slowly turning colder, you can count on your favourite TV shows coming back for another season. That is if they didn't [...]

Emmy Nominated TV Shows in 2019 I Haven’t Seen (Yet)

I watch a lot of TV. A lot. Many people (especially my mother) would say it's too much. But no matter how many hours I spend in front of the TV watching episodes after episode, there never seems to be enough time. I've created a survey so you can share your opinions on the shows [...]

What I’ve Read This Summer

I haven't written anything even remotely related to books in a loooong time. And that is because I haven't been reading. I talked about it how my anxiety stopped me from enjoying reading, but I was on holiday for two weeks and I was so completely relaxed that I could finally get into some books. [...]

What’s Coming out in August 2019

I'm getting ready for September which is what I call "pilot month" which is why I'm here talking about what is coming back in August! Last year, I talked about most of the new series that premiered and it took a lot of hard work. So I'm starting early! Here is what my August is [...]

Jane The Virgin – s05 ep18-19 – “Chapter Ninety-Nine” and “Chapter One Hundred” – SERIES FINALE 😭 – REVIEW

This was one of the best series finales I have ever seen. It truly is. Honestly, I won't be able to write a review like the ones I wrote for the last 17 episodes. I'm too emotional for that. I've started watching Jane The Virgin 2 years ago and I've loved every second of it, [...]

Jane The Virgin – s05 ep17 – “Chapter Ninety-Eight” – REVIEW

I have already seen some spoilers and honestly, I'm shocked. I have said it over and over again: I should not be shocked. This is a telenovela so things like these happen all the time. I just can't see them, apparently. I better stop talking because I promised myself this was going to be a [...]

Jane The Virgin – s05 ep15-16 – “Chapter Ninety-Six” and “Chapter Ninety-Seven” – REVIEW

I am so late. When I started reviewing all the Jane the Virgin episodes I thought I would have a lot of time, I would explore the show, talk about how the season is flowing and I was so wrong. I haven't had a lot of time, I've been busy building a website and... well... [...]
