It’s been an adjustment to return to work this week, so my mind has been all over the place. Before you go looking for it in the list, I have not yet started She-Hulk, but I will definitely watch it! For now, let’s check out what I’ve been able to binge and view this week.
FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS
The Sandman: Dream of a Thousand Cats/Calliope (Bonus Episodes)
This was a nice surprise! Seen as I still can’t stop thinking about this The Sandman two weeks after its initial release, just dropping bonus content was a genius move. It did feel a little bit like “ooops, we did some extra work, but had no idea how to fit it into the season narratively”, but I’m not mad at it.
Dream of a Thousand Cats didn’t have my favorite animation style, but kudos for getting some great voice actors to chime in.
Calliope on the other hand? That one hit all the right marks with me. It combines my love for stories about the publishing industry, mythology and more Morpheus backstory. I get why it wouldn’t have made sense to include it in the actual season, but I’m happy they shared it regardless.
WEEKLY TV SHOWS
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (Season 3)
Not Carlos thinking Maddox has a crush on Jet. They need to not keep it a secret that they’re related. Also, EJ is manipulating his own relationship at this point and has no one to blame but himself if this goes awry.
Good Trouble (Season 4)
You all know that Davia is my favorite, so this was a great episode for me. I’m glad the FCGs are standing up for their beliefs, even if it has economic repercussions for now. They’ll figure it out. Lastly, for a second there, I thought Isabella was going to kiss Dennis and I was gonna flip.
Roswell, New Mexico (Season 4)
Still no Alex. A lot of this season is disappointing.
As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences!
Look Both Ways
Look Both Ways was such a cute movie. I was worried they were going to mess it up by declaring one of the life paths to be the better one, but they did no such thing. She lived different lives, different paths, but both were valid and equal. I think I can see myself rewatching this one at some point in the future. Also, everyone on the cast is hot. It’s just facts.
Jurassic World Dominion
Someone really should have told me Mamoudou Athie was in this movie, because I would have watched it much, much sooner. He’s one of my favorite actors and it was a nice surprise to see him here. The movie overall was alright. I didn’t have super high expectations, but it was an okay conclusion. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it, it just felt so much less focused than the last one, which I really enjoyed.
Walker Scobell is going places! The Adam Project Secret Headquarters, … he just delivers really fun performances and I cannot wait to see him in the new Percy Jackson series. I know he seems like a little Ryan Reynolds, but what’s wrong with that? It’s great to have kid actors with such great comedic timing. Also, the other young actors were great too, not trying to dismiss them either!
