Anger

Lately I’ve been unbelievably angry.

Even the tiniest thing makes me want rip everyone’s head off. My mother was sick for a couple of days and I tried to help her as much as I could. But of course she had to complain about literally everything.

This week I should have gone back to university but I wanted to take another week for myself, relax, get into the mindset of going to Venice almost everyday but people had other plans.

They asked me to do stuff, go outside of the house, go grocery shopping and more. I just wanted to have a nice morning to myself, drown in books and TV shows and not think about the imminent start of the semester.

And yesterday I found out my boss put on the internet a video of me speaking in English and introducing myself. I was literally shaking. Being on camera puts me into a vortex of straight-up misery. It is my actual nightmare and filming it gave me nightmares for days.

Things piled up on top of each other and I will explode in the forseeable future.

I’ll go watch Brooklyn Nine Nine now. It’s the only thing that calms me down.

January Pilots – Part 3

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 recommended it to me and so I followed her advice. I was intrigued by it.

Glow is a fictionalized and romanticized version of the 80s female wrestling circuit, called “The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling”.

Starring Alison Brie, Berry Gilpin, Sydelle Noel, Britney Young and Marc Maron the show is quite dark and raw for a comedy.

I am very conflicted about it. I don’t have an opinion on it. I can’t figure out if I like it or not. I can’t seem to understand if it is good or not. It’s driving me crazy.


30 ROCK

I tried watching it a long time ago but it wasn’t the right moment. I didn’t get the comedy and pilots are always treaky.

When I finished the first episode I had no doubts: IT IS AMAZING.

It’s a comedy about the behind-the-scenes shenanigans loosely based on her “Saturday Night Live” experience. It also stars Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jack McBrayer, Scott Adsit and Jane Krakowski. There are so many celebrities cameos that will make your jaw drop.

It’s VERY VERY VERY loosely based on her SNL life and her relationship with Lorne Michaels, who created SNL and is an executive producer on the show.

I already liked Tina Fey from her SNL career (her Sarah Palin impression is LEGENDARY) and her simply being alive is a godsend but after watching the show I realized she is my idol and role model. I love her.

I read her book last year but didn’t appreciate it enough. So now it’s in my Amazon basket, ready to be bought.

The show is so clever, original and funny. I am basically Liz Lemon. I love her (and obviously Tina). Another amazing characteristic: the platonic friendship between Liz and Jack. I adored it!!! So glad they didn’t turn it into a romance!!

And the music!! Tina’s husband Jeff Richmond composed the soundtrack of the show and it’s fantastic!

I’m trying to end the post but I keep thinking of more unbelievably amazing feature!

Anyway, I highly recommend it. It’s stupid, fantastic, idiotic, clever, magical and the live shows are hilarious.



The End! I really enjoyed writing these mini-review about the shows I’ve watched.

Let me know what you’ve thought of them!

January Pilots – Part 2

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 out if the show it’s actually good or just garbage.

So here are my first impressions!

The Good Place

I don’t understand why it took me so long to start warching this show. It’s produced and created by Michael Schur. A television GOD! You might have heard of some of his projects: The Office, Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn Nine Nine… COMEDY PERFECTION!

The Good Place is about a woman (Kristen Bell) who finds herself in the afterlife and tries to figure out what it means to be good.

It’s such an interesting concept! Kristen Bell’s character Eleonor arrives at the Good Place, a perfect town overseen by its architect Michael. She meets her neighbours, her supposed soul-mate and Janice, the Good Place’s personal assistant.

It’s so peculiar, weird, funny, magical and more.

I already love it! Micheal Schur, you did it again, you amazing genius.

The Good Place season 2 finale airs Feb 1st at 8:30/7:30c on NBC



The Resident

I’ve watched quite a lot of medical dramas in the past and I enjoy them. So when I saw that the great Emily Vancamp was starring in a new show, I knew that I had to watch it.

Starring Matt Czuchry as the arrogant bad boy Doctor, Manish Dayal as his new and ambitious Devin Pravesh and Emily Vancamp as Nic the Nurse.

It’s about ethic, hospital rivalry and it gives an insight on the ugly and manipulative side of the health care system.

I was expecting something more. They sidelined Emily Vancamp as a background character and love interest, the driven and skilled minority doctor (the Cristina Yang of the situation), the old doctor that doesn’t want to retire (Dr. Webber in season 6) and the careless, arrogant, fearless jeans-wearing doctor (TC from NBC’s The Night Shift).

Something that drove crazy while watching “The Resident”, was seeing Matt Czuchry’s Dr. Hawkings displaying Jess Mariano’s characteristics: Logan Huntzberger with Jess’s personality? It confused the hell out of me. It totally messed with me. I still have to wrap my mind around it.

I like it. I’ll probably keep watching.

The Resident airs on Mondays at 9/8c on FOX



Let me know your opinions on these shows! I’d love to discuss!

30

One done. One more to go.

I took one of the two exams I’ve been studying for and I got 30.

(FYI, It’s the highest mark. I don’t know how the other universities in the world use as a scale).

It was an oral exam about a 17th century poet, John Donne, and for some reasons Shakespeare’s King Lear.

I was such a nervous rack in the days before the exam! I had gigantic spots on my face and my back, I felt a huge weight on my chest that made breathing normally a little bit difficult.

I haven’t had the best university experience. Due to a variety of personal problems and struggles. I’ve dedicated a large portion of this blog to that and I’ll leave the links at the end of this post if you want to check them out.

But, yeah…. I did it! And I didn’t even cry! NOT FUCKING ONCE!

I wasn’t expecting such a good mark but I’m proud of myself. Yes, I’m saying it. I am proud of what I’ve accomplished.Risultati immagini per lorelai i despise academics gif

But it has put me in a happier and more willing mood to continue my academic career even if, as Lorelai Gilmore eloquently put it, I despise academics.

I hope I’ll keep this up and I won’t fall in the spiral that brought me down last time.

Anyway… I GOT 30!!!!!!!!!!
