I’m so tired right now, I’m honestly not sure any of this will actually make sense, but we’re gonna do it anyway. Let’s talk about what I’ve been watching this past week!
FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS
I haven’t finished any new shows yet, although I started to binge Bee and PuppyCat, which is such a random show. I know it existed before this 2022 Netflix version/sequel, but I just went in knowing nothing and it’s fun.
Roswell, New Mexico (Finale)
It’s over! This new run of Roswell truly had its ups and downs. I was so in love with some of the characters, but the final season was disappointing to say the least. Except for the main ship, a lot of other relationships were sidelined or rushed. You all know that I adore Maria more than anything, she’s my favorite on the show, and it seems they weren’t able to get the actor for Gregory to return for the final season. So, she was just thrown into the arms of Dallas, which was cool, because they have chemistry and he’s great too, but it was rushed and THEY DIDN’T EVEN END UP TOGETHER. This is me complaining about someone who never got a steady relationship on the show anyway. I don’t even want to imagine how Malex and Echo fans are doing, because either their ship wasn’t there for 80% of the season or it is now left in space limbo indefinitely.
I know they had planned to do several time jumps for a final season, which they didn’t get, but I wish they just had at least a bit of a look ahead to give us more closure.
WEEKLY TV SHOWS
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (Season 1)
While I adored the comedic duo that was Madisynn and Wong, I didn’t love this episode as much as some of the ones before … I think Jen’s story didn’t get to shine as much and the way they kept bringing up that interview about how she got her name, I just have a feeling that’s obviously going to play into Titania’s lawsuit.
Tell Me Lies (Season 1)
WHAT DID I WATCH!? This show is just full of terribly unhealthy relationships, but I couldn’t stop watching and I will continue to tune in. I’m the worst.
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (Season 3)
Glad I was wrong about Ricky and that he put Gina first. That would have been so disappointing.
Star Trek: Lower Decks (Season 3)
The fact that they thought they weren’t the cool ship. RIDICULOUS!
Stargirl (Season 3)
I want the Shade back! He’s one of my favorites and I’m gonna miss him. Sylvester just becomes increasingly more unhinged …
As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences!
Thor: Love & Thunder
I FINALLY watched Thor: Love & Thunder. I enjoyed the movie a lot, although Ragnarok is still my favorite Thor movie. While some running gags got a bit tired, it was funny, but also had a lot of touching moments – not always an easy balance to handle. Having Jane Foster back was a bright spot in the movie for me, but at the same time, it didn’t catch me as much. I don’t know if this is part of my superhero fatigue or if there really was an element missing that would have made it more special.
If you know me, you know that I adored the ending. The fact that Love & Thunder was about something so completely different than what I had thought was perfect and I love these kind of stories, these unlikely but eternal bonds. I can’t wait for the next Thor movie to be honest.
AND I can definitely get used to Marvel films ending more or less in Ted Lasso cast member cameos. That’s lovely!
