This week just sort of passed by in a bit of a blur. I did watch stuff, but my brain has mostly saddled on one show in particular. I bet you can all imagine what it will be, but let’s just get started with the post either way.
FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS
Star Trek: Discovery (Season 3)
So, as you can see, I’ve ultimately decided to continue with Star Trek: Discovery. I thought that I wouldn’t necessarily love it being set in the future now, but I didn’t end up minding it as much. I still think they use Michael too much as the chosen one, but her connection with Book was one of the best things of the season. I love that she found her time and place and person. Also, Tilly is like one of my favorite characters, so her storylines were also a real treat for me. Let’s see what Season 4 will hold now.
Stranger Things (Season 4, Vol. 1)
I can’t stop thinking about this show! I’ve already mentioned it in my monthly wrap-up, but it’s basically on my mind 24/7. I don’t want to go into too much detail, but I was really invested in this season. The episodes didn’t feel all that long to me, despite the average season four episode being estimated at 86 minutes.
I’m not much of a horror person and I just looked away a lot of the time when it got super gruesome, but I’m beyond happy to have all these characters back. Even the new additions, where I will admit that I wondered if the cast was getting too big, were all amazing. I cannot imagine it being easy to make your mark entering this established show late on in the game, but a lot of them were just fantastic.
Now the wait for Vol. 2 continues … I just really do NOT want to see Nancy and Steve get back together. Also, I’d like to keep Eddie if possible? I’m afraid to wish for too much, because I just know they’re going to crush me.
WEEKLY TV SHOWS
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Season 1)
What a fun body swap episode! I know this isn’t like the Spock and T’Pring from the OG stories, but I’m enjoying it still.
As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences!
Everything Everywhere All at Once
I get it now. I, like many others who hadn’t seen the movie yet, thought this could only have been hyped too much. Which movie could possibly live up to such high expectations? Well, the answer is Everything Everywhere All at Once!
It’s a wild ride and I can just advise to go in with little knowledge and to let yourself get swept up in the craziness. This is what happens when you think out of the box for your storytelling and it has led to the best results. I had my heart racing, tears streaming down my face and scratching my head in confusion and wonder. Simply amazing! It deserves all the praise.
