It’s the last day of June and I have four blog posts to write today! Yikes! So much for spreading everything out this week. Busy, busy days. It didn’t feel like I watched as much as usual this month, but I guess the list is still pretty lengthy.
TV – Alone
I’m so over this show. I think it’s the last season? I hope so anyway. I really miss the days when nobody knew Liv was a zombie and every week was just a procedural episode with her taking on the personality of whatever brain she needed to eat to solve the case. Now that it’s so political with zombies vs humans in the closed off Seattle, I really couldn’t care less.
I was devastated to hear this was cancelled! It may have never gotten much buzz, but I thought it was such an entertaining sitcom. I loved that classroom of nerdy misfits. I’m glad it at least was given a pretty great ending!
Ick. So I watched this because I listened to the podcast. Both based off of the true story. I do have to say that the tv show was really fantastically done. I thought Connie Britton did such a great job portraying Deborah. But John? SO CREEPY. Just thinking about the few days I binged this makes my skin crawl. They did a good job with it. I’m just so glad it was a single season and over.
Oh my goodness, Luke, GET OUT OF HERE. How can they devote so many episodes in a row to him?! This past week wasn’t quite as bad, but I still don’t understand why Hannah keeps him around when he’s so clearly the rotten egg of the bunch. I’m assuming it’s a producer decision because (Bachelor Nation experts) Knox and Jamie say the bachelor or bachelorette is only allowed to choose four to keep every week and producers get to make the rest of the choices. I’d say that Tyler is my top choice right now. He’s so cute and sweet and stays out of the drama. I really like Peter too because he’s just plain adorable. And I like Jed because he seems like a genuinely good guy. I really liked Garrett after the naked bungee jumping date and how he didn’t make any lewd comments or anything about the naked stuff. Which, by the way, I LOVE how Tyler defended Hannah’s honor to Luke by saying that he was happy she was able to have an experience that was important to her. All the heart eyes for Tyler. I liked how Garrett handled it, but I did not like how obnoxious he continues to be with Luke. Just get up and walk away and stay out of it.
Life in Pieces
This is turning into a Modern Family role in my life. I still enjoy it, but it lost some of its endearment to me. Though I think this was also unexpectedly cancelled and I only have two episodes left to watch.
Bless This Mess
This is an appropriate to show to watch while doing something else. I know it’ll never be a favorite, but I have enjoyed it!
The Chef Show
Shepard and I found this on netflix the other day and have watched a handful of episodes. It’s not exactly kid friendly in terms of language content, but he loves to watch the cooking aspects. I’ve always really enjoyed Jon Favreau, so I like seeing him in this totally random cooking show he put together.
Jane the Virgin
Not much to say about this. It’s okay. It’s almost over for good.
Is it just me, or did Liza and Charles suddenly become super awkward now that they’re together?? And is it also just me, or does it feel like they’re shooting the show with less camera filters or something and all the actresses seem so old and tired and wrinkled? I’m really hoping this season gets better than the first few episodes. I feel like Josh is still being dangled as an option, which is annoying. I was always Team Charles (though I love Josh! I just think he deserves better than Liza), but I don’t like them now that they’re an official couple. It feels so weird.
TV – Together
I went from pretty meh to totally loving this show. The characters were all so unlikeable at the beginning. But I adore how they banded together at the end. I’m also so very happy that Klaus got his act together and became a much more interesting character once he stopped being doped up all the time. I’m excited there will be a second season.
You’re the Worst
This is pretty much what we watch every single day. I really love it. And they really are THE WORST. But the show is so good at throwing in punches of vulnerability and goodness, so you’ll never actually give up on the characters. I really like how they portrayed Gretchen’s depression in the second season. And I’m enjoying Edgar’s PTSD issues in season three. Jimmy is always highly entertaining. And I really like Paul. It’s a good show. I still can’t believe it was on for so long and I never once heard of it.
I was so excited about this show. I adore David Tennant and Michael Sheen. Together, it felt like such a fabulous pairing. And then we started watching and it was just SO not my thing. We made it through three episodes. I couldn’t stand watching the three others. So disappointed. I mean, I think it’s a very nicely put together show. But it’s not for me.
We finally watched season two. So good! Everyone is so hilarious, I just love it. I really loved the finale when James was finally shown some love!
Always Be My Maybe
I’m not sure I can count this when I didn’t finish it. I think I got to the final 25 minutes and I just could not watch any more. To be fair, I watched this on my own when I felt like I SHOULD take advantage of having the tv to myself, but I also had a really amazing book waiting for me, so I was very distracted wanting to keep reading when I thought I should be watching. The movie was okay. So many people raved about it online, but it fell pretty flat for me.
Oh man. I am in love with Taron Egerton after seeing this. I didn’t even know who he was beforehand. He just did such an awesome, amazing, beautiful job portraying Elton John in his younger years. Those eyes! That jaw! His voice! Just to compare it to Bohemian Rhapsody since the movies are similar, I liked this one SO much more. Though it might mostly be because Taron Egerton is a lot hotter than Rami Malek (lol). I highly recommend it!
We just watched this a few days ago and both really enjoyed it. How can a movie filled with Beatles songs not be good?! I liked the main actor and his singing was nice. It was also a breath of fresh air to watch/see a music story that does not center around them doing drugs, having endless roadie sex, and basically ruining their lives. This had none of that, which made it so much more fun to watch. It was really good!
