I know, I know … I skipped last week, but I’m back now. Sometimes I just need a little longer to watch things and I’m still contemplating moving this feature to Friday. Just saying.
FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS
Our Flag Means Death (Season 1)
I am SO in love with this show and I don’t even know how to express those feelings. I’ve always liked Taika Waititi and the projects he undertakes, but this one was extra fun. I don’t know if it’s because I have a soft spot for pirate stories or because the romantic chemistry between Taika and Rhys was off the charts, but I so hope that there’s more.
They took real life pirates, but made this story completely their own. After so many of my friends tweeted about wanting another season, I gave in and watched it and have to fully agree! We need more of these kind of shows on our screens, where not everything is dark and gritty. Where things can be different and vulnerable, but still fun. MORE PLEASE!
WEEKLY TV SHOWS
Outer Range (Season 1)
I really don’t get what’s happening. I don’t even know who’s side I’m supposed to be on?
Superman & Lois (Season 2)
This show is so fantastic and the bizarro episodes in general were amazing, but I don’t understand why there’s another break. This is why network television is so freaking annoying.
9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 3)
What a huge episode on fathers and I was here for it. Owen’s character is really getting some depth to him, which is great, but I also like to see other characters shine.
9-1-1 (Season 5)
I CALLED THE THING WITH JONAH. I know it was fairly predictable, but I’m still proud of myself.
Good Trouble (Season 4)
Davia and Dennis – they really need to get a move on. I hope Luca sticks around, but this was already the spring finale. I hate the wait.
Legacies (Season 4)
Alright, I took a break from the show, but I’m all caught up now. I’m so over the whole Landon/Hope stuff, I just don’t care. I’m here for the gods and especially Ben and Jed. Zane Phillips is a sight for sore eyes.
As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences!
Crush was a really sweet and fun sapphic movie. The chemistry between the leads was great, the adults supportive and the friends amazing – everyone deserves friends like that! However, sometimes the movie was just too loud and over the top. It robbed the story of some of its authenticity. Still, cute and definitely alright for a nice movie night.
I have zero investment in this franchise and just watched this on a whim. The beginning totally reminded me of some frames that could have been taken from a video game, so that’s nice? Other than that, it was alright for a treasure hunting movie? I liked the chemistry and banter between most characters, although the women were done dirty for the most part. I’m outing myself here, but I mostly watched for Rudy since I love him on Outer Banks and he’s genuinely not a good reason to watch the film.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
This is going to be short and spoiler-free. I might do a whole spoiler-filled review in a week? Unsure – sound off in the comments if you would be interested in something like that!
I left the movie with a deep sadness inside of me. Phase 4 of the MCU is just the era of pain and I’m not sure I’m 100% here for it. Having said that, they promised more horror and delivered. I fell for every. single. jump scare. It gave me a lot of food for thought. We shall see where it leads, but I hope everyone gets to enjoy this with as little prior knowledge as possible.

I’m so excited to watch Our Flag Means Death! And terrified of seeing Multiverse of Madness haha. Also really want to see Uncharted, not because I care about the movie but because a friend of mine worked on it as an electrician so I wanna see their name in the credits! I love these weekly recap because it always reminds me to add interesting stuff to my list even though I haven’t watched that much tv recently (though I’ve had a weird urge to watch documentaries lol)
Our Flag Means Death is my current happy place. I’ve been consuming a lot of happy queer content and I’m not mad at it haha
I love seeing the names of friends in the credits! That’s definitely a good reason to watch it 🙂
And I’m happy to know that people don’t find these recaps completely useless. I do watch a lot, but it comes and goes in waves sometimes, depending on life circumstances, I guess.
I haven’t watched any of this, but that’s probably because I finally finished Bridgerton season 2 and we’re now binging Ozark season 4 but are only halfway through.
I tried Ozark once, but couldn’t really get into it. I hope the finale of the series is everything you hope it to be though!

It’s a dark tale. I don’t remember how long it took us to get into it, but we have been loving it. It kind of reminds me of SoA with the moral stuff.

I’ll see what I think of Doctor Strange 2 tomorrow evening. Fingers crossed I like it.
I did not not like it? Just to clarify.
I realize, though the fact that it scared you gives me hope.
It’s super easy to get me with jump scares haha
I’ll keep that in mind if we ever meet face to face.
Ohh I keep hearing people gush about Our Flag Means Death and it makes me very intrigued!! Where did you watch it? 👀 We don’t have HBO Max here and idk where else it’s streaming 🤔
