This past week I’ve been watching Outlander (Amazon). Although I’m not into romance, the time traveling aspect of the show seems enough to give it a try. I found the show on Amazon Prime, and so far it’s a jewe. Claire travels back in time in Scotland when she is traveling with her husband after WWII. When she touches ancient stones, she is thrown back to the 18th century in middle of the concoction of a war: English against Scotts. She ends up saved and prisoner among the Scottish.
Claire is a woman of the 20th century: a nurse that served in the War, a smart and independent woman. When she sees Jamie wounded, she cures him making her valuable. Although the Scotts think that she’s an English spy at the beginning, she ends up earning their trust after a long time.
Although I’m not a huge fan of Archie, I have read some comics and quite enjoyed it. So, I decided to watch Riverdale on Netflix. This version of Riverdale is much darker than the ones I’ve read in the comics. In fact, I find it more interesting. We all know coming-of-age stories that thrill us, but this time this show has the potential to be something else. Based on the comics, it can showcase Riverdale from another angle. Plus, it can be a mirror for diversity.
Riverdale can become a huge hit. However, there is a little bit of polemics out there on the web. For example, the will for Jughead to be asexual. Whatever happens, the potential for greatness is there. You can feel it in the first episode: lovely made. And the colors are just perfect.
[SPOILERS ahead! There are spoilers about the first episode. So, if you want to be surprised by the show: stop reading right here. If you don’t mind spoilers, keep reading please.]
I found another jewel on Netflix again: a show called the OA. It’s a mystery drama with science fiction, fantasy, and supernatural elements. It has some similar features to Stranger Things. So, if you liked the show, like suspense and science fiction and fantasy, you might love this show.
The central star is a woman called Prairie who comes back home after being missing for more than seven years. She was blind for most of her life, but when she comes back, she can see again. No one can explain that, nor the strange scars she has on her back. To make things spicier, she calls herself the OA. At first, it looks like another case of abduction, and neighbors and other people treat her like a weirdo.
Last week I found a great show on Netflix called Beyond. I was bored, and I ended up taking a look at new shows on Netflix. My eyes ended up on Beyond, a show that tells the story of Holden Matthews, a teen who has an accident and stays in a coma for 12 years. When he wakes up, it’s like a miracle. But he’s not a teen anymore: he’s an adult. What’s more, he also has superpowers. But, while he struggles to recover his previous life, he discovers that he is also in great danger.
Imagine that you’ve been sleeping for a long time, and when you wake up you have physically changed, and the world around you has gone wild. Computers were rare, but now people communicate using smartphones. Imagine the shock of Holden when everything he knew is gone.
I’m watching at the moment is Lucifer. It’s a weird choice for some, but an entertaining one for many others. Lucifer is an alluring, multilayered, and sexy character that will enchant you from episode one. Even if he shows traits of pure evil, I must confess that I find him quite naïve. He apparently doesn’t understand humans. He finds them as thrilling as puzzling. Eager to experience more from the world his Dad created, he keeps on having fun helping solving crimes. Most of the time he is a pain in the ass, but a lovely one.
Most of what I’m watching at the moment can be found on Netflix. This time I want to tell you all about vampires, documentaries, and magic. Since Halloween is around the corner, I decided to go back to vampires and werewolves. I confess that I have a fixation with vampires since I was a teenager. For some reason, vampires are always a great option for the whole year. But they feel even better during Halloween. So, holding that thought, let’s start!
1. The Originals.
After watching all the Vampire Diaries, it was just a question of time to end up watching the Originals. Although it isn’t as thrilling as the Vampire Diaries, I do enjoy the madness of Klaus. Niklaus Mikaelson is volatile and very dangerous. Although his brother seems to be less erratic, he does have his fair share of darkness. It’s entertaining and an excellent choice for October.
What I’m watching can be found on Netflix. Yes, most of the stuff that I watch can be found on Netflix. Believe it or not, I don’t have a TV. For the most part, I read, write or watch Netflix. So, no wonder all my choices can be found there. This past week has been challenging due to work and trying to relax. I’ve been quite nervous lately, and reading and watching shows that I love help. So, what has been on my screen menu lately?
1. The Shannara Chronicles.
I recently bought the first book of the trilogy because I wanted to read an epic fantasy. Well, I found the show on Netflix, and I was shocked. So, before starting to watch it, I had to decide if I would start watching it before starting reading the book. And, yup, I was weak, and I started watching. If you love quests à la Hobbit, this might be for you. It’s an excellent choice for teens, especially if they don’t want to see gruesome deaths like in The Game of Thrones. Despite being “mild,” it still has some bloody scenes. Expect to see lots of beautiful elves, hideous demons, and talented humans. Oh, and there’s a badass Druid that needs to get laid. Seriously, he needs it soon because he lacks any sense of humor and he’s all about duty and the usual “your destiny crap.” If you loved Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit, this is a must watch. (Much sweeter, though.)
What I’m watching at the moment can be found on Netflix. Yes, I might be one of those human beings addicted to all things Netflix. During my meals, I like to pass sometimes with vampires, science fiction shows, and documentaries. I can’t remember a time when Netflix wasn’t there (I’m serious here!) So, what have I been watching lately?
I need brains! Well, at least I would need them if I were a Zombie just like Liv. I’m not a great fan of zombies, but I couldn’t stop watching this show: it’s too smart! Plus, Liv’s Funko Pop figurine it’s too cute to resist. So, what does this drama have? Love, sex, zombie attacks, mysteries, and glamor! Whatever you wish for it’s in there! You’ve got a geek doctor, a sexy ex, a beautiful best friend, and a spooky and sexy enemy-turn-out-to-be-friend. It’s addictive! As much as brains would be if I were a zombie.
What I’m watching at the moment can be found on Netflix (yes, talking about Netflix again!) I’ve been having fun with magic on Netflix, but I’ve also got into some fantastic documentaries on feminism and masculinity. I’ll start with the fun part, and then I’ll get serious.
Merlin is a jewel! I had no idea this show was so good! I discovered it by chance on Netflix, and I decided to give it a go. Now I understand why Merlin’s fandom is still so strong! (And also why you ship Merlin with Arthur!) If you haven’t seen this jewel yet, please do so. It’s amazing! The only problem: you’ll like to see it forever! Alas, there’s all there’s to be on Netflix. So, chill and enjoy the magic!
What I’m watching at the moment can be found on Netflix. I might have a Netflix addiction, but most of the shows rock and I need entertainment while I have dinner. So, these are the shows I’ve been watching lately.
1. Stranger Things
I started to watch Stranger Things along with my Vulcan. It’s a pain just to watch one episode each night. I’d love to binge watch the show because it’s so good, but I have to behave and watch it along with my sweet pie. Although I’m a kid of the 1990s, my sweet pie lived all the eighties in all their glory. So, it’s a delight to enjoy the show while we share memories from our childhood.
