Ooooh it feels like it’s been a while since I did a round-up of what’s been on the box lately! You know, I never really feel like I watch much television until I write these posts! *insert eye covered monkey emoji*. Do I watch too much tv? Surely not?
I’m annoyed. I’m annoyed that I started watching this back in September and still, I’m no further than the early episodes of season 2…what’s wrong with me? I can’t seem to get through it quick enough and everyone else is already onto the revival! Would it be wrong to take a week off work just to try and catch up?
When the guy least likely to become the President becomes the President…no, not that guy, this guy; Tom Kirkman. Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, aka, Kiefer Sutherland. Literally about to be kicked out and sent to far far away, he’s there all chill in his sweatsuit and popcorn when the State of the Union blows up, killing the President and forcing Kirkman to his place, whether he wants to or not. It’s got promise though is somewhat of a slow burner but I seem to love a good political drama these days!
This show never ceases to amaze me. How it weaves the fairytales we know in amongst each other and takes them down deeper and darker paths than we could have ever imagined. How this show was ever dropped from TV is beyond me but YAY for Netflix for keeping it alive and more magical with every new season! This one just never gets old!
Oh, we binged our way right through this from start to finish and I’m beyond hooked! I never knew there was a film originally and I’m really tempted to give it a watch. I love how the characters have developed and it took a couple of twists I didn’t see coming which is always good! I haven’t checked but I hope it gets picked up for the second season!
Most of this season I have just sat there shaking my head and wondering why? By far it has been one of my least favourite seasons. Every single candidate annoys the hell out of me, I’m rooting for no-one. I would love this seasons to be the season where during the final, instead of hiring someone, Lord Sugar actually fires them all and donates the money to charity instead. As far as I’m concerned that would be the best investment he could make!
I freakin love this show and am terrified of it at the same time. I also have a theory that Charlie Brooker has a time machine and so already knows where our social media obsessed future is taking us, thus he is warning us to stop now and turn back before it’s too late and we end up with a 3.5 rating. I can’t binge watch these at all, I have to take them slowly, they end up playing on my mind so much!
I go through phases and the earlier it gets darker, the more I seem to be watching Vampire Diaries again. I’m nowhere near as hooked as I once was but once I’ve got an episode on I can’t seem to do anything else!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them
Could this film have been any more amazing? Someone actually said they preferred it to Harry Potter and I was like no way, impossible but after seeing it….I can see where they’re coming from. I love the Harry Potter films, don’t get me wrong, but Fantastic Beasts was just on a whole other level! I loved the nods to the HP universe, to Dumbledore and Hogwarts, his house scarf at the end and I can’t wait to see what the next two films bring! Cash cow or not, just take my money and keep me in this magical world!
