I’m not quite myself these days, so I don’t have all that much to tell you. A lot of shows are on a little break or the new ones I’m looking forward to haven’t gripped my attention after all, but I’m still going to do a small summary.
FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS
Abbott Elementary (Season 1)
This show was such a delight to watch and I absolutely support it having a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Seriously, what’s not to like? I love the faux documentary style, I adore the focus on what it means to be a teacher and the dynamics between the characters (If you’re not shipping the slow burn that is Gregory and Janine, what are you even doing?). It’s funny, but it also tugs at your heartstrings in just the right ways – I’m not exaggerating when I say I almost cried in the season finale.
I genuinely wish this show many more season to come. Quinta Brunson and the rest of the team really did something special. Also, kudos to them for continuously donating to educational funds and causes.
WEEKLY TV SHOWS
Sanditon (Season 2)
Usually, I’m one week ahead with the episodes, but not this time. I can’t believe it’s almost over again. I just want the girls to be happy.
9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 3)
The Tarlos content was *chef’s kiss* this week. I felt so sorry for TK for having to restart his journey of sobriety because of no fault of his own and he’s really trying to do his best, on top of grieving his mother. I just think they’re doing so amazing.
9-1-1 (Season 5)
Alright … Buck redeemed himself a little bit this week, but I’m still so mad at him for what he did to Taylor (who I’m not even a real fan of) and the writers for putting him in that situation. It still seems out of character.
Other than that, I worry about the newbies. I don’t really like them yet, because we’ve only seen brief moments of them here and there. I worry about the paramedic for some weird reason? Like he’s purposely putting patients in danger to show his skills and make himself seem invaluable? I hope I’m just imagining that, because I’d rather him stay than Lucy? Just because I really don’t want that kind of trouble on the station. She’s a hotshot for sure.
And thank the heavens for Eddie getting help. No matter how much it hurt to see him break down, it’s what he needed to move foward.
Good Trouble (Season 4)
I’m so, so, so, so glad the promos were misleading and Davia still knows my boy Dennis best. I would have been beyond sulky if they’d moved ahead with Isabella becoming Dennis’ person. I cannot wait for next week though, because Joaquin is for sure going to confront Dennis about his sister and I also read that Luca will be back and that Davia will invite him to stay at the Coterie.
As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences!
The In Between
Okay … this movie was very reminiscent of “If I Stay”, just even longer and that truly wasn’t necessary. I have to admit that I stopped it halfway through and continued watching some days later, because it just made me sad, but mainly it’s angsty teen romance ghost stuff?
I think there’s far better storytelling about the afterlife/beyond than this, but also worse stuff. It just felt a bit overdone in parts. I’m a fan of Kyle Allen, but for some reason Joey King and I just don’t vibe.
Did you watch any of the things I mentioned? Let’s talk about that!
