There’s so much I want to do, but definitely not enough hours in the day to do it all. I’ve been on a rigorous workout schedule, I’ve been writing my Fantasy novel and just had a ton of work in general – blogging, unfortunately, took a backseat through all of this. Finding the balance is always hard, but at least I have my two posts a week that I can (hopefully) still entertain you with. Let’s check out what shows and movies I’ve been watching.
FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS
I haven’t finished anything, but the number of shows that are airing on a weekly basis has increased a lot.
WEEKLY TV SHOWS
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (Season 1)
Jen wasn’t wrong when she said that the wedding episode came at a really inopportune time during the season. That’s all I’m going to say about it.
Vampire Academy (Season 1)
Episode 5 of Vampire Academy was so freaking intense and had me on the edge of my seat. I’m truly in love with the show and I don’t know if it’s the formidable cast or me always craving vampire content, but I’m happy. If only I could binge it in one go.
Monarch (Season 1)
Very interesting choice to market Monarch with Susan Sarandon and then do … that. It’s a mix between Nashville, Empire and Dynasty, which can be entertaining, but I haven’t been completely hooked by the mystery yet. I could have done without any deaths and just the interpersonal drama.
Tell Me Lies (Season 1)
Is anyone out there rooting for Stephen and Lucy to actually be together? Because I sure as heck am not and think they’re both better off without the other one.
Abbott Elementary (Season 2)
It’s BACK and it had such a great season opener. I weirdly don’t watch that many sitcoms anymore, but Abbott Elementary has my heart and I’m rooting for this show to keep going strong.
The Cleaning Lady (Season 2)
I really enjoyed season 1 of the show, but I might possibly be in a bit of a slump with crime stuff, because I’m not as enthusiastic about it now. I’ll give it more time to get back into it though.
Star Trek: Lower Decks (Season 3)
The Rutherford storyline was the more interesting one to me, but it’s always great to see Boimler snap.
Stargirl (Season 3)
It’s so frustrating to see how slowly the ships on this progress. If this is potentially the final season, I need way more Beth and Rick interactions. Just sayin’ … We all remember this era on my insta, right?
9-1-1 (Season 6)
Me and firefighter content. The fact that the return of Station 19 is also nigh, I’m content.
As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences!
Where the Crawdads Sing
So … I loved the book (review can be found here), but then I learned some stuff about the author and was really turned off by the whole thing. I also didn’t necessarily feel like giving the movie a platform, but I kind of adore Daisy Edgar-Jones? Long story short, I ended up watching the movie and am not too sad about the fact that it’s on the mediocre side. I think the actors all did a great job with the material they were given, but the adaptation just doesn’t work as well as the book because of pacing and story issues. The final twist barely has any impact, because it comes out of nowhere. The more linear storytelling makes it feel predictable and cheesy. I think this could have been done in a more thrilling way.
