Nice to watch something light and quirky. It wasnt what I expected and that was good. I'd compare it a bit to scrubs, but in a pot dispensary. The laugh track took me back but it faded. The charcters are parodies with some cute touching moments. It is light, the continuarity of characters make it An easy binge. It flows, following goofy yet engaging arcs.
I now have a crush on an actor 10 years younger than me.
The most unpredictable, ambitious and challenging show of the year. Its event television at its best (love the fact that people had to wait a week in between episodes). Its a bold new chapter of surely one of the great ever television universes. It was scary, funny, moving, and of course surreal. The direction was just about perfect, and there were some fine performances from one of the best ensemble casts ever gathered for TV series. Am still catching my breath from the finale But I want more
Fargo season 2 (2015) 9/10
My one small complaint is that Dunst's character could have been dialed down a bit at times, but as the season moved on and I could see more the point of the character I didn't even mind that too much. So rich and ambitious, with some interesting themes, and the UFO stuff is just so insane (and yeah I mean that in a good way).
So I did a binge watch of this yesterday. It's an easy binge, only 8 half hour eps. Now I love the movie, and I liked the first show First Day of Camp. So this is a step down from that. But I still like these characters. It was nice seeing them all reunite, plus characters from the other show and then some new characters. But there was a really stupid plot surrounding it and then the ending.
it was all just a story Coop was writing. Which makes sense because of ridiculous stuff that happens, but still that's what makes it fun and different.
Just checked this out on Amazon Prime, as part of their deal to promote new shows; it won't get picked up for more episodes unless the public wants it, which I hope happens for this one.
Really good family-oriented show, although I found myself questioning the family part while I was watching, so the kids will have fun with it*. Great acting, even from the child actors, not the worst effects considering they probably didn't have a huge budget, and plot-wise it's very interesting. I'd definitely recommend this for anyone, with or without kids
*this was a confusing sentence, though I'd clear it up. Some elements of it, I thought, was a bit 'scary' for a family show, which should be 'cool' for the kids that they're allowed to watch that.
I actually really love this show. I always thought it was a funny, charming look at life during your 20's, but the second season finale really turned my like into love. It's not your average sitcom. It toys with your expectations and throws them out the window. It also plays with format, as the season finale proved. Plus it's refreshing to see an awkward, insecure black female lead in a comedy show. When this world is filled with nothing but empty and outdated stereotypes, we need this type of representation now more than ever.
My mad fat diary - 9/10
As a person who has always struggled with my weight I can really relate to the main character in this show. Its a beautiful show and explores a lot of different things that can trouble young people from depression, anorexia and other eating disorders and just mental health in general. Not to mention it is incredibly funny at times and heart warming at other times.
There was a couple of weaker episodes in the middle. Still way above the standard for regular television, but because the beginning of the show and the ending were so dam strong, there's a couple of episodes that just felt a bit weaker. The men's flashbacks tended to be less interesting to me, perhaps because it's hard to beat the female perspective on a show like this. However it was important to show the men's perspective too, I'm just glad it didn't overshadow the message, if anything it made it even more clear. Nick's flashbacks felt meh compared to the rest. It was nothing that we didn't already piece together. I enjoyed Luke's episode though (aside from how the US took over Canada, still bitter about that one!).
There was so much great talent on the show, there really was not one weak link here, everyone was phenomenal and very well casted. I'm really impressed with the acting, and the cinematography. I was very happy to see in the credit that lots of women were involved in either directing or writing. I know it's not an opinion that everyone agrees on, but I do think in a show like this it makes a difference to have a lot of women involved.
Now I plan on reading the book. It's crazy how ahead of her time Atwood was in writing this book. What I'm most curious is how they treat homosexuality in the book, since it's a fairly important part of the show, but I doubt it's that prevalent in the book considering the time at which it was written.
I finished this last week, I think. Lol. Having only seem Jessica Jones, I really enjoyed The Defenders. Especially the first half, I thought was great, the last two eps kinda slowed down for me. But I love all the character interactions. I actually liked Iron Fist in this. Have not seen his show yet. So I'm looking forward to watching all the shows in chronological order starting with Daredevil.
Took a bit of getting into, but once it going it was a gripping, thought provoking drama with a powerful performance from Benedict Cumberbatch. Kelly Macdonald was good too, but her character was a bit underwritten I thought. I've read the book which is one of my favourites.
Drew Barrymore as a zombie? I'm surprised I haven't watched this before now. Now it's not the best zombie show of all time, and iZombie is more creative with the lore, but there's gory fun to be had here. Drew has always had my heart, and without her, the show fails. She even eats a favorite Whedonverse actor in the very first episode! But if you need a quick binge watch without getting your heart broken, check these ten episodes out.
Black Lake - 8/10
If you like old fashioned supernatural ghost stories, with twists and turns I think this will keep you hooked. Some of the characters are better written than others, but the lead character had depth and was well acted. It was tense throughout too, and stylish.
