My Personal Fall TV Line-up – October

And now… See what premieres in October!

Check out my September Fall Premiere post!

RIVERDALE IS COMING BACK!!! I. NEED. MORE. BUGHEAD. AND. MORE. COLE. SPROUSE. IN. MY. LIFE.

My crush on him is weird. But I like him. And Lili. She is so pretty.

*starts daydreaming about them*

[25 minutes later]

Let’s get into it!


October 4th

Superstore

Risultati immagini per superstore season 4

Justin Spitzer’s show is cute but lacks something: good storylines and actually funny jokes. It might seem harsh but I was really disappointed by season 3. It did not make much sense, Amy’s pregnancy was stupid and Jonah’s relationship with the blonde girl (whose name, for the life of me, I can’t remember… Shelly? Cherry? Idk) felt like a joke who ran for far too long.

I’m curious to see how they are going to spin it into something that is watchable.

I mean, Spitzer worked on The Office! Come on!


October 4th

Will & Grace

Another season! So excited! I can’t wait for the Riverdale one liners, political jokes and overall gayness.

And Matt Bomer guests stars in it. Matt. Bomer.


October 7th

Doctor Who

Risultati immagini per doctor who season 11 posterDoctor Who is back! With a new Doctor who is a kick ass woman!!! I am so happy Jodie Whittaker has taken over the role! She deserves it so much!

And Steven Moffatt is GONE!!! He is no longer the show runner! I’ve been going my happy dance since the day it was announced.

Chris Chibnall, who also created Broadchurch, is the new person in charge of it!

I can’t wait. I’m really really excited.


October 10th

Riverdale

Riverdale is back!!! After a mysterious season 1, a second season filled with romance, weird ass stuff and a killed freeing the town from sinners, this third installment is going to be epic.

Full of trash, plotlines that don’t make sense, hopefully another musical episode and more Betty and Jughead.

I was so happy in season 2 when Archie was arrested. I hoped he would be gone for a while, you know…. in prison. So I didn’t have to see him making his terrible decisions. But no, he is still here.

Apparently with a serpents tattoo. *rolls eyes*

But I have exciting news! I’ll be reviewing every single Riverdale episode on this upcoming season! So keep your eyes peeled for that!

So. Much. Trash.


October 16th

black-ish

After a spectacular 4th season, full of important episodes and a four episodes arch into a more dramatic side, the Johnsons are back!

I didn’t really like it at first. I watched it without paying much attention to it but now I’m very attached to it!

They always talk about important social issues and… well… I have a huge crush on Tracee Ellis Ross. I love her. I find her extremely likable and adorable and I want us to be best friends.


October 19th

Daredevil

Daredevil (2015)

If you go through the shows I talk about, you might notice there is not a lot of fantasy / superhero stuff.

But I’ve been watching “Daredevil” since season 1 and I’d like to see how it continues.

I didn’t really like season 2. I did not care about he whole thing with Electra and the tension between Matt and Foggie was too angst-y.

I did binge season 1 in two days. I stayed up almost all night to watch it.

I don’t know anything about this third season but from the poster and the tagline, it feels like it’s going to be much darker than the other ones.

That being said, I’m curious to see what’s going to happen next.


October 26th

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Netflix)

It is produced by the same guys as Riverdale and created by Roberto Aguirre Sacasa (who also created the comic back in 2014).

It was intended as a Riverdale spin-off but it’s going to be so much darker with a lot more horror elements in it.

I used to watch the old adaptation when I was younger and this is definitely something completely different.

It looks creepy and trashy and the birthday song reminded me of Betty singing it to Jughead on episode 10 of the first season of Riverdale.

I can’t wait to see if it is as trashy as Riverdale. This is so exciting!


October 28th

Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj

Hasan Minhaj in Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj (2018)

I’ve been a fan of Hasan Minhaj for a couple of years and I cannot wait for him to have his own show. This field pieces for The Daily Show along with his other segments are so good! He is funny, intelligent and thought-provoking.

You can watch his stand-up comedy special on Netflix “Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King” and you should definitely give a look at his Whitehouse Correspondents Dinner speech. It is AMAZING.

Patriot Act is created by Hasan and Prashanth Venkataramanujam, who was head writer on the WHCD. In his weekly talk show, they will explore America’s issues and trends that are shaping our ever-growing divided world.

I cannot wait!


and this is it!

Are you also planning on watching these shows? What do you think about them? Do you think Riverdale is too trashy… but you can’t stop watching it?

70th Primetime Emmy Awards – Commentary, Reactions and Best Dressed

The Emmys happened this morning! From midnight to 5AM I was glued to the screen, watching the Red Carpet and then the actual ceremony.

emmys-2018-review

Hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che, I liked the show. It was quick, efficient but… kinda boring?

It was a bit bland and there was very little tension! They announced the categories so quickly that I couldn’t even work up any sort of suspense. And having the narrator (??) / voice-of-God person read the nominees’ names might have saved time, but it felt too rushed. Moreover, they took unnecessary breaks between less important categories rather than the ones people are notoriously interested in.

Risultati immagini per sandra oh andy samberg

The banter between the presenters was as awkward as always with the exception of Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, obviously. He is adorable, nothing he does is ever not entertaining.

Betty White is obviously an american treasure but bringing her on stage felt unnecessary. I get that she is so important but that poor woman is 96. Leave her at home. Don’t parade her around.

And as much as I love Maya Rudolf and Fred Armisen, their segments fell so incredibly flat. It was not funny.

I won’t even talk about the proposal because I was so embarrassed and I hated it so much. Like, so much. I would have run out of the theatre screaming in horror. I hated it. But congratulations, I guess…

Not unto the part that left me angry and disappointed.

They bragged about how diverse the nominees were and yet,

22 out of the 26 awards given out were won by white people.

Only 4 non-white people won.

How is that possible?

The irony is that at the beginning they did this great opening with a diverse cast singing about how diverse they were. And then they didn’t awarded any Emmys to said diverse group of people.

WHAT?!

p.s. they should have let Kate McKinnon host. She is the best. And also a woman.

Atlanta didn’t win anything, which is a disgrace. Atlanta’s “Teddy Perkins” deserved the award for Outstanding Directing. And Matthew Rhys as best lead actor? Sterling K Brown was in his same category. Sterling.

I also have bone to pick with the outstanding leading actress in a drama. I want to say that I LOOOOOVE Claire Foy and her performance was magnificent but they overlooked Sandra Oh and Elisabeth Moss. If it were up to me, it would not have gone to Claire.

And the supporting actor in a drama series? Peter Dinklage? He is always brilliant but this season did not shine a light on him and it was a little bit weak.

Thandie Newton was amazing in Westworld. She was truly magnificent but I can’t help but feeling Yvonne Strahovski was robbed.

And the awkwardness in the outstanding variety talk series when people started chanting Stephen Colbert‘s name and John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight won? YIKES! I love them both but I think I might have wanted The Late Show to win.

Now I want to gush about two people I was so proud and thrilled they won:

Bill Hader for Outstanding Lead Actor in a comedy and John Mulaney for Outstanding Writing in a Variety Special.

I’m so proud of them.

Before showing you the selection of dresses I fell in love with, a special shout out to shows like “RuPaul Drag Race” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” for bringing parts of the LBGT+ community to the screen.

I’ll say it again… Atlanta was robbed. And sure, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel was fantastic but cool it. A few of those awards were questionable.

NOW UNTO THE FASHION!

70th Primetime Emmy Awards: Comedy (Supporting Actors, Lead Actors & Outstanding Series)

And last but not least…. Comedy! Supporting Actors and Actresses, Lead Actors and Actresses and Outstanding series!

Check out all my other opinions:

Now let’s go!



Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series

2018-09-03 (6).png

What a great group of ladies!!!

Aside from Laurie Metcalf, I’m very familiar with all these performances and they’re great!

Let me start by saying I don’t understand Glow. I like it but I don’t get it. Alex Bornstein was amazing on The Marvelous Mrs Maisel and Megan Mullally is a legend.

The three SNL ladies are brilliant but my pick is Kate.

Kate McKinnon had a fantastic season on SNL and she can literally play any person. She has no limitation.

2017 Winner: Kate McKinnon, SNL

My Winner: Kate McKinnon, SNL



Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series

2018-09-03 (7).png

I don’t know Louie Anderson and I don’t even know Baskets. Sorry.

But I do know the other actors and their performances!

Alec Baldwin’s Trump impersonation has become iconic and, speaking of SNL, YAY Kenan Thompson! His first nomination!

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s season 4 is mind-blowing! So good! Tituss Burgess’ performance was so funny! I loved him! Brian Tyree Henry was also unbelievable on Atlanta‘s “Barbershop”! It was so funny!

I can’t decide between Henry Winkler and Tony Shalhoub. They were so unique on their own show and they were both amazing.

I just can’t…

Also, where is Andre Braugher? Where is his nomination? He needs it. He deserves it.

on top of that… WHAT ABOUT ZACH WOODS? He killed it as Jared Dunn! I’m so pissed about this.

2017 Winner: Alec Baldwin, SNL

My Winner: Henry Winkler / Tony Shalhoub



Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series

Lead actress in comedy.png

 

I don’t get “Moms” and I don’t get “Grace and Frankie”. Sorry Allison Janney and Lily Tomlin. I’m just putting it out there.

I loved Pamela Adlon on Better Things. The show is great, so different and a comedy but not really. It deals with intense things.

Tracee Ellis Ross. I love her. I love her. So much. She is such an interesting person and her portrayal of Dr. Bow Johnson was so good. I need to mention the post-partum depression episode. She was magnificent.

My pick for the Emmy has to be Rachel Brosnahan. I fell in love with her and “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel”. She was incredible on the show and she deserves it.

2017 Winner: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep

My Winner: Rachel Brosnahan, “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel”



Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Serieslead actor in comedy.png

I do not watch Shameless (yet) and I don’t like Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. I don’t want a Bernie Sander’s lookalike to yell at me for 30 minutes.

And now it gets tough. Anthony Anderson has been amazing as Dre Johnson but I feel like we need to concentrate on Donald, Bill and Ted.

Season 2 of Altanta was so weird, so strange and so amazing. Ted Danson as Michael on The Good Place was iconic and he gave such a terrific performance.

And Bill Hader. Wow. Barry sounds like it shouldn’t work but it super does. It’s genius.

2017 Winner: Donald Glover, Altanta

My Winner: Bill Hader / Ted Danson (Sorry Donald).



Outstanding Comedy Series

comedy series.png

I don’t get Curb Your Enthusiasm and Glow. I will watch season 2 of Glow but I think it is not for me.

Now, how can I choose between these? Silicon Valley was hilarious and Blackish talked about so many important and socially relevent topics.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was so incredibly funny this season! I was not that into it in the past but WOW!

Atlanta killed it. It was so weird and so innovative. So NEW.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel was a breath of fresh air in an otherwise quite dark comedy environment. It was so bright, fun and hilarious.

And now onto Barry. A show about a sniper who wants to become an actor. How can it work?, you ask. It can, it does and it’s magnificent.

2017 Winner: Veep (HBO)

My Winner: The Marvelous Mrs Maisel / Barry



That’s it!

Tracee Ellis Ross

I used to write beauty posts about women I like and the makeup they wore and I thought it would be cool to bring it back. I wrote about Emma Watson, Sarah Hyland, Emilia Clarke, Lily James, Kerry Washington, Sophie Turner

As I said back then, these are women I like, women I admire and women who wear fabulous makeup.

And the amazing person I want to talk about today is Tracee Ellis Ross.

She stars in ABC’s “Black-ish” and she is amazing. She is such a poweful, unapologetic and empowering woman and she is so fashionable!

I love her. She has confidence, a gorgeous smile and she’s not afraid to express her opinion.

Risultati immagini per tracee ellis ross red carpet makeup

Tracee has amazing lips and she often accentuates them with a bright lipstick. And she pulls it off like nobody else does.

Personally, I got inspired by her: eyebrown, a barely-there super soft shimmer eyeshadow on the lid, mascara and then a pop of colour on the lips.

It’s beautiful.

At times she also lines her eyes with a black eyeliner and it makes the whole look seem more time consuming and thought out.

I’ve noticed red is her preferred colour but she wore  beautiful neon pink on Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and I fell in love with it. I wore my own bright pink for three straight days.

She wears different shades of red like in this picture, but usually it’s always a bright classic red.

Risultati immagini per tracee ellis ross red carpet lipstickThis is another look of hers that I adore: a pinkish burnt orangy eyeshadow to slightly match her earrings and a nude lipstick.

GORGEOUS.

I love it.

And of course I love her. She has such a fun and bubbly personality. I recommend checking out her interviews. She is adorable.

AND this year she made her directorial debut on Black-ish! She directed the first episode of the tetralogy at the end of season 4!

YOU GO TRACEE!!! #WomenDirecting!
