Where I ramble about all the TV shows and movies I’ve watched in the past week ….
It’s been a week, but it seems that February will pass by much quicker than January did. Here’s what I watched this past week!
FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS
Lockwood & Co (Season 1)
I’m going to start off by being real honest with you – if Netflix doesn’t renew this show, I will be SO upset! Their promotion team is setting them up to fail, but they deserve so much better.
I haven’t read the books and cannot speak to any possible changes, but what I can talk about is the phenomenal chemistry between the characters. While the world is definitely interesting and had me intrigued from the get-go, it was the various character interactions, the longing looks, the tension that really carried the show. Lockwood & Co might seem like it would skewer fairly young, but I think this works for adults just fine. There’s so much you can still do in this setting and I 100% want to explore the relationships some more. I might even start reading the books, because they certainly do have my attention right now.
WEEKLY TV SHOWS
The Last of Us (Season 1)
Episode 3 – Long Long Time – was EVERYTHING! Every week, this show just keeps getting better and better. I never expected to be so freaking invested (and concerned about the real life fungi news we’re getting).
Mayfair Witches (Season 1)
Ugh, what can I say. I wanted to love this show so bad, but I just don’t? There’s an element missing, something that could truly grip me.
Will Trent (Season 1)
The way this man looks at and cares for Betty is everything. It’s a healthier relationship than the one he has with Angie, but that’s gonna take some more unpacking.
National Treasure (Season 1)
WHAT A TWIST!!! I mean, did you see that coming? I, first of all, thought that was an absolute minion character, but not the boss man. And secondly, do we think the death is permanent or will there be some saving involved? I’m kind of in denial at the moment, just because I think that the agent and morgue guy are the cutest.
Fire Country (Season 1)
If the drama starts getting repetitive in season 1 already, we might be in trouble.
Wolf Pack (Season 1)
Still enjoying it, but I keep wondering if that is Ian Bohen’s voice when it comes to the anonymous caller, which in turn makes me think of Teen Wolf.
How I Met Your Father (Season 2)
Meghan Trainor was a random cameo, but my boy Sid did amazing this episode. He’s one of my top characters on the show.
The Legend of Vox Machina (Season 2)
THEY GAVE ME SOME OF MY FAVORITE PERCY/VEX MOMENTS ON SCREEN! I still always want more, because I’m a greedy, greedy person when it comes to my ships. But truly, they are doing such an amazing job adapting the campaign and I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone, but that one cameo from an important C2 character – let me tell you, I screamed.
9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 4)
As expected, I care very little for the FBI plot. Also, what kind of amateur undertaking is this. They aren’t protecting Owen at all.
As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences!
I watched the Teen Wolf movie so you wouldn’t have to. Saying it’s a mess is the understatement of the century, because this movie was just disrespectful. If you ever had love for this story and/or the characters in it, spare yourself! I’m still fuming and it’s been almost a week since I’ve watched it.
Granted, I should have known and I kind of did know that it was going to be terrible. So many of the cast members didn’t return (for good reason! They did Arden Cho so dirty!!) and the more I think about it, the better for them! Now they won’t be associated with whatever … *that* was. I mean, we didn’t have Stiles, Kira, Isaac, the twins or so many others. Out of my personal top 5 Teen Wolf characters, there were only two present in the movie and one of them was eventually killed off. The other got a different love interest, which was the only bright spot in the whole thing.
This entire movie catered to what Scott needed and railroaded all other characters in order to give him what he desired in life. Honestly, it felt gross. I’m just ranting now, so I better stop. My disappointment is boundless.
If any of you want to talk spoilers about the movie, feel free to do so in the comments. I will gladly dive into it more deeply there.
