Top 10 Favorite Shows! | 2017 Spring Edition

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a top 10 of all my favorite shows of spring of 2017! I did one for winter in February which you can read here. It’s a little late. It’s very late as it’s almost June but I wanted to do this now before we were too deep into the summer. Let’s began!


#10 The Vampire Diaries

the-vampire-diaries-poster-cast.jpg

You’ve probably heard of this show given it came out in the 2009s when everyone was vampire crazy. I’ve been watching this show for a while and I’m only on season two because I’m watching it with my mom and we are always busy doing stuff. We tried to start watching it again but we didn’t remember anything that had happen but it’s fun show to watch that I don’t have to take that seriously.  I read the book and I didn’t like but this show is a lot more enjoyable than the book was. I really like Ian Somerhalder though because he has really pretty eyes and a nice face. I hate Bonnie though Oh my god is she a hypocrite.


#9 Reign

RGN_Poster_800px_130826193656

Again this is another show on CW that I have fun watching and I don’t really have to pay attention to. This show follows Mary, Queen of Scots and I’ve wanted to watch this show for a long time and now that I’m watching it I’m not loving it but I’m not hating it. It’s an okay show that isn’t at all historically inaccurate when it comes to history which I think is hilarious. One they play modern music through out the whole thing, two the outfits aren’t correct for the time period as some of the dresses Mary wears show a lot skin and her elbows which wasn’t allowed during that time because they were weird and hated women, three their is a lot of magic involved with the storyline which I know didn’t happen. But I’m liking this show and if you like CW shows then you’ll love this one.


#8 Supernatural

supernatural-season-12-cover

I put this show on my last list and I know I raved about it because at the time, I was in love with it. I’ve been in love with it since I was 14 and even though it slowed down a little bit in the later seasons but I loved season 11! It was the best season that they had had in a while and the first half of season 12 was great and I was having so much fun but then the second half of season 12 was so boring and I hated it. Well I I didn’t hate but I was just disappointed with it. Supernatural seemed like it was going to be starting to get good again. The British men of letters thing was boring and the anti-christ storyline was too American Horror Story. Don’t even get me started on that season finale like I’m soo mad! How can they do that to me?! I won’t spoil you on anything but I hope that it doesn’t stay like that for long.


#7 Luke Cage

luke-cage-cropped.jpg

Again another show that it’s taking a lot of time for me to watch. I’m enjoy it though and I need to watch more of it before Defenders comes out and I also need to finish Daredevil and watch Iron Fist before Defenders. Luckily I’ll have some free time soon as summer break is near like I have a week of exams and then I’m out of school! I hope to catch up on a lot of shows during my free time. I will finish Luke Cage! I’m enjoying it so far and it’s great! I love all the characters and the story line right now and Mahershala Ali is amazing on this show.


#6 Brooklyn Nine-Nine

BrooklynNineNine_S4.jpg

This show is so much fun to watch! It’s like Scrubs or Psych you know it’s in a setting that most shows take seriously and do overly dramatic plot lines but it doesn’t take itself to seriously and tries to just fun. Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows a group of people who work at  a police station in New York if you haven’t guessed and they all have different personalities that make them work together. I love Jake and Amy they are so cute together and even though they have different personalities as he is laid back and she is a giant nerd but they seem to make each other better. I love Terry and I love Rosa! And I just love the whole thing!


#5 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

63596611808798173224502820_Unbreakable-Kimmy-Schmidt.png

Season three just came onto Netflix and it’s completely random! I love it though. The lemonade parody was amazing and so funny. This show is just a fun and completely random show and you’ll just be laughing really hard when you watch it. It has a really naive main lead who was trapped in a bunker for 15 years and she doesn’t know much about the world. Her roommate Titus is the funniest thing ever and I love the way they interact together. Just go and binge watch all three seasons because it’s so much fun.


#4 Gilmore Girls

14298_7867ecbf7a994ddeb64c40534ef66d22_16x9_788x442o

I’m actually re watching this show because I love it so much. I just wanted to get the feel that it gave me when I first watched it two years ago. I’m on the beginning of season four which isn’t my favorite season as you know Lorelai and Rory are in different locations aren’t together most of the time and there’s the whole Dean thing. But I do love seeing young Jared Padalecki, I don’t love his character later in the series and if you are a supernatural fan then you probably thinks it funny that his name is Dean on this show. I’m just going to say this to get it out in the air……*takes a deep breath.… I hate Jess. Sorry not sorry. He’s a jerk. I mean he gets better later like in season 6 and in A Year in a Life.


#3 The Mindy Project

785f6b2cbf5ea76206dd11d81b14754b-the-mindy-project-season-5.jpg

I need this show to come back on because it’s the final season and I need to know what happens. So season five did something that seemed like Mindy was happy about but then in the last final seconds it shows Mindy looking sad about what she decided to do. I want to know how this last season will play out. Will Danny come back because I miss him? He needs to work out his issues with Mindy and come back because I don’t like Ben that much or at all. I’m sad that it’s the last season because I love Mindy Kaling, she is hilarious and she is so great on this show.


#2 BBC Class

p048smks

Again this was on my last list but it’s on airing in America and I’m showing it to my mom and  I love it! I have a review for it which you should totally read here. This show is amazing and it was created by Patrick Ness who is amazing and he never tells the same story twice every and this was a spin off series to Doctor Who! You guys need watch this show because so many people don’t know anything about it and I want a second season because I need to know what happens next! Go watch this show please. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


#1 Parenthood

parenthood_combined3-620x388.png

I binged watched this series so hard. All six seasons. In a week. I got mad binging skill. This show is a mix of comedy and drama and you will cry and laugh and it’s great. Watch it because it’s so much fun. You’ll have a good time when you aren’t crying.


Well this was fun. I enjoy talking about tv shows, I should do it more. If you were expecting 13 Reasons why and Riverdale well I’m sorry but I don’t watch trash. I’m sorry Riverdale is trash. 13 Reasons Why is just a show that I don’t agree with some of the choices that were made. Do you guys agree with what I’ve said? Have you guys watched any of these shows? If not you really should. I hope you guys enjoy this top 10 list! Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!

Things I’m looking forward in 2017!

Greetings everyone! Now I know you are probably thinking ‘Gigi we are already three months into 2017 why are you making this now?’ Well I was going to make this list earlier but I decide not to do it for some reason I can’t remember at moment. But a lot of stuff is coming soon and I’m really excited and I need to talk about it! This are in no order at all it is just a list!

Let’s began!


Beauty and the Beast

March 17, 2017

onesheet.jpg

This is the live action version of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast staring Emma freaking Watson and Dan freaking Stevens and a lot of other great actors! I know this movie is already out but I haven’t seen yet and it’s driving me crazy! I love Beauty and the Beast the original *i have a review here and I have looking forward for this movie for years *i have a post talking about it hereEveryone in the world has seen this expect me and I’m really sad about that because I’ve only heard amazing things! I mean they have all the original songs from the original and they add a couple more like Evermore! I haven’t listened to it yet because I’m trying to wait for the film but I’ve that it’s heart breaking and DAN STEVENS SING!!!


Pentatonix Vol. IV: Classics

April 7, 2017

318+M3BUlIL._SS500

Yes the beautiful angels are coming out with another album except they are doing covers again but old school covers. They have already released one of their new songs which is called Imagines and it’s beautiful and heartbreaking and everyone needs to listen to it! They have also released Jolene with Dolly Parton and that won them their third grammy! That is also a really amazing song and even though Jolene is country it’s so good and everyone should listen to it either way. I really love Pentatonix and I’m excited to here their covers of these songs.


Orphan Black: The Final Season

June 10, 2017

orphan-black-season-5

It’s the final season and I’m excited but I’m heartbroken because I don’t want it to end. This show is so amazing and great! There are four seasons out right now, I think you can watch them on Amazon Prime but that may not be right. You all should just binge watch this show before it ends because it is just so amazing. Tatiana Maslany is such an amazing actress and you know that she is an amazing actress because she plays half the characters on this show and she is great! She finally won an emmy you know some time ago and I was so happy for her!


Spider-Man: Homecoming

July 7, 2017

979e4c18d16b65a6054554bc13c5c197536e6f26

Who else is excited for all the upcoming marvel films because I’m so excited like you don’t even know! I’ve recently gotten into Marvel comics *I mean I’ve always lived the movies but now I have the comics and I freaking love them. Like it’s made the whole marvel universe seem a lot bigger and a lot more overwhelming to me. There are just so many characters and universe and there is just so little time! So I have now fallen head over heels in love with the all the spider-men and spider-women and Tom Holland so I’m so excited for this film! And yesterday my excitement grew because I was on Donald Glovers IMBD because I love him and I wanted find stuff on the new Lion King and then I see that it’s says that he is going to be in this movie *screams of joy!!!!!! I’m just sitting there thinking what if he gets to be Miles Morales because he has already voiced him and by doing this we could bring the whole spider verse together and IT COULD BE GLORIOUS!!

Also could someone tell me who Zendaya is playing in this movie because I thought she was Mary Jane and they announced that she was going to be Mary Jane but now everyone is like she is some chick named Michelle and I’m just confused.


A Court of Wings and Ruins by Sarah J. Maas

May 2, 2017

ACOWAR_US.jpg

I need to just review this because some much stuff happens in them and it just drives crazy and leaves me in a emotional reaction. If you have read these books and then you just have to go and read them because these books are just so good! Like any other Sarah J. Maas book. Warning these books have very sexual themes so if you aren’t comfortable with that then don’t read them. I’m so curious to see how this finale book in the series plays out with Feyre and Rhysand and with the crazy events that happened in A Court of Mist and Fury. I remember being in shock the whole time reading that book and damn it I need this book now!


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

May 5, 2017

guardiansofthegalaxy2vert-208281.jpg

I can not expressed to you how much I love the fact that this movie is called Vol. 2 and not Guardians of the Galaxy 2. I hate when they call the movie sequel number 2 like just come up with a title!! I’m so excited for this movie, I’ve watched all the trailers so far and I’m ready for this! Baby Groot is the cutest thing ever to exist The first Guardians of the Galaxy was a really get movie, I’ve never laughed so hard in my life and I’m hoping that this one is going to just as amazing as the first. I’m really excited for all the upcoming Marvel movies for this year and for next year and I hope that they never stop making them because I don’t know what I would do!

 


The Carnelian Crow by Colleen Gleason

July 11, 2017

C6_J-YDW0AE7Zq2.jpg

YASS!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been waiting for this book for so long and by that I mean I’ve been waiting since January. I wrote a review for the first three books here which you should check out. Well actually you should read the first three books then preorder this books and then read these books. They are fantastic and so underrated! More people need to read these books because they are soooooooo great! It has two great female leads and great plot lines. READ THEM!!!!

10 Top Favorite Shows! | 2017 Winter Edition

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a top 10 of all my favorite shows of winter of 2017! I have always wanted to do something like this and I was going to do it with my favorites list but I’m going to do separate list and I’m going to do one for each season. This should be fun! I hope you guys enjoy this!


#10 Daredevil

596674.jpg

Yeah I know you are probably thinking how are you just now getting into Daredevil! I know and I’m disappointed in myself. I started watching it when it first came on but then my family wanted to watch together so then we watched that the first two episodes then my dad went and watched it without me and then after watching Jessica Jones, I decided to start watching Daredevil. I’m still working on season one but it’s hella good. I understand why everyone loves it. I’m loving all the Marvel Netflix shows. I just love any Marvel superhero stuff. It’s my life.


#9 The Crown

the-crown-poster

 Another Netflix original show that follows Queen Elizabeth II coming to power and follows her and her relationship with her husband, her sister, and a lot of another people. I mainly wanted to watch because it’s got a blonde Matt Smith and I love him. Also I like watching shows that take place in different times because I love seeing all the clothes because they remind me that I was born in the wrong era! I really love shows with British people which again is like my life. I’m almost done wit the first season and I haven’t heard anything about a season two but hopefully that’s happening.


#8 How to get away with Murder

how-to-get-away-with-murder-season-3.jpg

*they all look so sexy in this picture

This show is one of those shows that stresses me out so much. If you couldn’t tell by the title this show has something along the lines of murder and getting away with it and that’s all I can really say with giving anything away. I went into this show before season two aired and I didn’t know that much about and then I watched like the whole season in one day then I started season two and I was just like screaming because this show is just TOO GOOD!!! Viola Davis is just amazing in this show she is just so amazing. Every episode is like hey Viola Davis invented acting. Everyone else is really amazing too they have such a great cast. Season three B started and man it’s good!


#7 Sherlock

33910

Season four just finished and I have mixed feelings about it. I thought the first episode was okay. I called the ending of the episode which disappointed me because Sherlock had never been predictable. The second episode was great! It was really crazy and some great moments happened. I was laughing while crying at the same time because even though what had happened in episode one was predictable it was still pretty sad and it had a giant affect. Episode three was just crazy crazy with a capital C shit went down in this episode. I was told that season four was the final season and they made it seem like the final season with how episode three ended. I was happy with how it ended but now I’m seeing all these different articles about season 5 happening and I’m just like what? If there isn’t a season five then I’m happy but if there is I’m still happy.


#6 New Girl

episode-6-1-3_poster_goldposter_com_1.jpg@0o_0l_300w_70q.jpg

This is one of the shows that I’ve loved for along time because it is soo funny. This is one of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen. It’s currently on season six and I think that it might be coming to an end soon because stuff is happening and it’s making me wonder if it’s coming to end which I don’t want because this show is so amazing. It’s so much fun to watch. Every episode makes me laugh. All the characters are so unique and very weird which makes them brilliant. I love Jess, Nick, Cece, Coach, Schmidt, and Winston.


#5 Supernatural

supernatural-season-12-cover

12 SEASONS BABY! Oh my god I’ve loved Supernatural forever! It went through a rough patch but when season eleven came on it was the best thing ever. After a couple seasons of only focusing on only angels and demons they went back to other supernatural beings and then all the stuff started happening and it’s so good. I love Cas he is my favorite. This show is one that when it ends I will be really sad. I said that like it is ending soon but it’s not. I think. The second part of season 12 just came back on and it was so great. If you haven’t watched Supernatural then what you are doing?


#4 A Series of Unfortunate Events

a6cedfb0c9736c220e2524938f3da72e92b3b7df.jpg

I have a review talking about why you should watch this show here. Oh my god this was the best thing that ever happened in the month of January. I finished the books just before  watching the show and so when I got to watch it after finishing up it was amazing and so great seeing all the characters I love on tv. Neil Patrick Harris was just fantastic as Count Olaf he was mean, evil, and funny all at the same time which is basically Count Olaf. I never saw the film version of A Series of Unfortunate Events and I’ve heard mixed feelings about it but as far as I know everyone loves this adaption.


#3 Superstore

superstore-2015

This show just came back on which I am so happy about because this show is just the best thing. It follows an odd group of people who work at a store that is like Walmart and all this random stuff happens and it’s just the best thing ever. This show takes a couple episodes to really kick in but after that it’s like non stop humor and I really love it. This show that you’ll love no matter what it’s just the best you really have to watch. It comes on NBC on Wednesdays.


#2 Victoria

victoria-tile-650x366.jpg

I liked I said I really like watching shows that take place in a different times and that are British. This show has the adorable Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria and it follows her journey through being queen. This show only has four episodes out right now in America and I’ve never loved thing any more. This show is fucking fantastic! I’m really into shows right now with royalty right now if you couldn’t tell. And anything with British actors. I’ve always loved Queen Victoria. I saw the film with Emily Blunt and I’m planning on reading this new book that came out on like last year. Jenna Coleman is so amazing as Queen Victoria she is just so freaking cute and she really shows Victoria grow as a character. I look forward to very episode each week and I need the new one right now!!!!


#1 BBC Class

p048smks

Again I love British television. Technically I watched in 2016 but you know what I’m rewatching it so I’m putting it on the list. I have a review for why you should watch this show which you can read here and after you read that review then you need to go watch this show because it is the best thing ever!!! You may think that Class is one of those shows where it takes place in high school but they casted a bunch of people who are in their twenties and are way to beautiful to be high schoolers which is true but you ignore that you finally watch the show and realize THIS SHOW IS TOO AMAZING FOR ME TO CARE ABOUT THAT. This show needs a season two really I want a season two. GIVE ME A SEASON TWO! WHY DON’T I HAVE A GOD DAMN SEASON TWO! I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! OR AT LEAST GIVE IT TO ME IN BOOK FORM! Sorry I just really love this show and I really want another season two. Everyone needs to watch it. Don’t watch for me, watch it for Patrick Ness and the beautiful people on the picture.


Well that was a lot of fun to write. I hope you guys this top 10 list. I’m planning on doing this for Spring, Summer, Fall, and all do something like this in December of this year then maybe next year. Do you guys agree with what I’ve said? Have you guys watched any of these shows? If not you really should. I hope you guys enjoy this top 10 list! Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these! Also make sure to follow my social media links and check out my link page for more ways to find stuff by me!

The Book was Better | Top 10 List

Greetings Earthlings! So a while back I made a post called Yay or Nay: Book to movie or tv adaptions which you can read here and I talked about book adaptions, the ones that failed and the ones that were successful. Even though I talked over all the ones that I don’t think I’m going put those titles in order of how much I like that the book was better then the film. *even though most of the time the book is always better


#10 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Okay now I love Harry Potter as the next and I love theses movie. For Harry Potter movies I look at that differently from the books but for this one I can’t get over it. Ginny and Harry’s relationship was so freaking cute and it wasn’t the same in the film. The moments that I loved in to the book didn’t happen in the film. But I don’t totally hate I juts think the book is better.


#9 Twilight

I’ve been my peace with the Twilight books but I can’t get past these movies. Yes it’s a box office success but I can’t stand it. I like the Twilight book *my review has been marked changed it’s not my favorite book but it’s still good. I can’t say the same for the movie though. It’s just so cheesy and the vampires look like someone threw flour on their faces.


#8 Vampire Academy

 Like I said before I keep going back and though on wether I like this film or not. Yes this book does have some scenes that are very cliche and high school but it’s got some good parts too. This movie undermines the parts that are good and makes this film seem like it’s trying to be action and for the stereotypical teenagers that they think want this movie.

How about less Mean Girls and more butt-kicking vampire scenes. Also what’s with the poster? What’s with the uniforms? Also everything that needs to be explained is narrated! Why?


#7 Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

Don’t get me wrong I did like the book and the film because it’s like Pride & Prejudice just with zombies. The film was great and I thought it was so much fun and the acting was great. But halfway through the film it decide to ditch the story and go it’s own way. Away that I didn’t like. It should have followed the book a little bit more.


#6 City of Bones

The Mortal Instruments is the only series to be on here twice. The movie version of City of Bones is like Vampire Academy. They brought out the parts of the book and made them the main focus. I didn’t like Alec or Isabelle, they story only focus on Clary and Jace which kind of sucked because I love the other characters too. I like Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell in this film I like they are great actors but everyone else wasn’t that good. Well I liked Simon.

*i’ll always love simon


#5 Paper Towns

Unlike everyone else, I thought that this adaption was pretty close to book. Besides the ending. But I like the book better because I liked the characters much better. In this movie I couldn’t connect with any of the characters like I did in the book. I found myself *wink wink finding the characters in the movie a little bit unlikeable. But thing is I still think that they are all perfectly casted.

I’m lost about my feeling *wink wink wink


#4 I am Number Four

*did you get that???

The Lorien Legacies is kick ass series about nine aliens and their protectors who are sent to Earth after their planet is destroyed. No this isn’t about Four from Divergent stop making stupid jokes.They are the only ones left of their kind and all of them are being hunted. This is a story of kick ass characters, love, betrayal, and action. This film was trying to only focus on that love part and it tried to seem more then a Twilight wannabe with weird alien power scenes but that didn’t happen!

Also what’s with Six and the random accent? And with blonde hair? It’s like a reverse Annabeth.


#3 Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters

Theses movies suck! But this one doesn’t suck as much as the first like they tried to fix. They talked about Thalia and her give that backstory *which they did in the first movie but it was A DELETE SCENE!! Annabeth has blonde hair, camp half-blood looks like camp half-book, and they still had some of the moments from the book just not in order. But we still didn’t get the Percy Jackson we wanted.


#2 The Mortal Instruments

The second appearance of the Mortal Instruments on this list. Three years after the City of Bones movie, we got Shadowhunters. A very very cheesy version and very very off version of The Mortal Instruments. I do like the actors much better then I enjoy the ones in the movie and the acting. It’s not the best thing though. The first two episodes followed the story but then it stopped.


#1 Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief 

I’ve heard some people say that they think this is better then the book and I just give them a long glare. I saw this movie before I read the books and I liked it. Then I read the books and now I can’t watch these movies without being filled with rage. I mean guys Uncle Rick hates these movies that’s how bad they are! If Percy Jackson ever gets picked up again then they must have it be perfection because we can’t take another failure!

The only reason I wanted another movie was so that I could see Percabeth on screen but if they did continue, they would probably destroy it.


You guys are probably wondering where is Insurgent is. Well I hate the Divergent and I am not a fan of the films so there’s no place that here. There are also much more but these are here for now. I hope you enjoyed this list! Do you guys agree with me on? What’s your favorite adaption? Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!
