Greetings Earthling! Today I’m FINALLY reviewing season two of Miraculous!

WARNING SPOILERS!

d1bc4383dbcda1fed3e2ead205a71116c98a9755

Wow it’s been a while since I’ve talked about Miraculous. The last time I talk about Miraculous in March I think. Wow it’s been a while! Sorry this has taken me so long to review this but life has been crazy. I’m here now so let’s get started! I did two review for the first season which you can read here and here,  I did a theory post here, and I did a review for the first episode of season two here, the second episode here, and the third episode here. I love this show and I was really excited for season two! I was so happy that I was finally getting some episodes. They only released 12 episodes on Netflix which I thought they were going to release 13 so I had seen most of the episodes but I still watched them and I had a good time as always.

I wanted more though! Even though I had a fun time watching this part of season two I finished all the episodes in like a day and I wanted more! I don’t when the second part is coming out but I hope it isn’t going to be in like three years! It probably will be. That’s be honest because the show aired in 2015 and we didn’t get season 2 until a couple months ago so we will have wait while. I will probably just rewatch a couple twenty more times because I have problems. I’ve last count of how many times I’ve watched it. I think it’s more then ten times now. *don’t judge me. 

So season two had a lot going on and after my second time watching it, I’ve decided that the reveal better happen soon because I need it! They have teased me so many times that honestly I need to happen soon. I don’t want it to be at the end of season two! I want it now! I really wanted the end of part one to have the reveal but it didn’t and I was really sad. It did have Luka who I didn’t care for at all. Everyone loved him even before we met him and I was like okay I need to meet him before I can decide anything and then we met him in Episode 12 and I didn’t love him. He freaks me out. Everyone was just his smile is so cute and I’m like he looks like a serial killer. And he was only there for an episode it still wasn’t enough for me to like him. Same with Kagmai and I will talk about this in my episode 4 review but she was only in one episode and was akamuized for almost all of it. Besides I’m still way waiting for Marinette and Adrien to become a couple and they are not allow to be with anyone else.

I’ve never really preferred a ship because they are still Marinette and Adrien no matter what but each ship had so cute moments. There was like episodes that were focused on one of the ships and oh my goshes those were so my favorites. I just loved all of them. I like that my favorites are the LadyNoir and Adrienette because I love it when they are together and they sort of know who the other is. Look Marichat and Ladrien just give me a lot of anxiety because I’ve read fanfic based on those ships and they are like too intense for me. The whole show is already giving so much anxiety and I don’t need more!!! For a kid show it causes me a lot of stress. Honestly my favorite episodes have got to be Glaciator and Gorizilla. They are just so ship heavy and so much like fanfictions that I love them so much! Honestly let’s be real this whole half of the season was basically very Miraculous fanfic that is out there.

In this season we also discover that Gabriel Argeste is HawkMoth which I called. Everyone knew it. But we learn his motivations this season. We learn that when you get both the Ladybug and Cat Miraculous then you can get a wish but with that wish comes with some consequences. So the theory on the tumbs *that’s tumblr if you didn’t know is that Gabriel wants the Miraculouses because of Adrien’s mother who we discover is named Emilie and by doing that he is going to do something bad to Adrien. That’s just a theory but like let’s be real I could see Gabriel doing something shady like that. He literally made someone angry just to figure if Adrien was Chat Noir. Literally he is the worst. Now that we know that he is HawkMoth my theory that Adrien might join forces with him is really strong. We see how much he loves his dad even though he isn’t there for. He keeps forgiving him and not telling him how he feels. His dad just has this affect on him and I think that he knows this.

Let’s talk about something else now. So Lila has yet to appear despite the fact that it is said she was going to be in this season. I thought that she would take Chloe’s place as the resident girl to cause Akamas and Chloe could have some development but girl has yet to show her face. Which I’m happy about because I literally can’t watch Volphia without having a panic attack. Chloe though has gotten some development. Like Despair Bear was her talking steps towards earning the Bee Miraculous. I own that I said that I thought it would be funny if she accidentally did something nice and then Master Fu be like here is the Miraculous. But like another thing that I want to happen is for Chloe to get it after the reveal and have it be Adrien’s idea and Marinette being like ‘No that’s stupid’ but then she let’s him do it and every time Chloe does something Marinette just looks at Adrien like ‘I can’t believe you made me let you do’. I feel like it would be some entertaining.

See we have seen one other Miraculous and it was Rena Rogue! She was so great! Aya my girl she kicked ass! I loved seeing her as a hero and seeing her working with Chat and Ladybug. Her and Chat are best friends fucking fight me! So thought that she would find out about Marinette but she didn’t and she also didn’t get to keep the Miraculous. I was sad because I wanted to see more of her because I love her. Talking about other Miraculous WHERE THE FUCK IS NINO? My boy has barely been in this season! Also to quote Michael Scott WHERE ARE THE TURTLES? Seriously? I just want my more to get more screen time.

And that has been my Miraculous Season Two review Part One. I hope you enjoyed this crazy rant about Miraculous. I will probably do one about Episode four soon soo look out for that. Up next is my Leah on the Offbeat review which you hope you’ll checkout. I have not seen the rest of season two and please don’t leave spoilers in the comments or on my social media thank you very much. I will be watching the rest of season two when it airs and you should to. Have you guys seen season two yet? If you have what did you think?

Sherlock Season Two Review!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing Season Two of Sherlock!

SherlockSeason2Poster

If you don’t know I’m rewatching Sherlock because I’ve read most of the books and the Charlotte Holmes series put me in a kick for anything Sherlock Holmes related. I did a review for season one which you can read here. I love this show and I’ve had the best time watching this show. I’m trying to figure out if I would still call this one of my favorite shows because I have a lot of mixed feelings on season four. It’s kind of like the Last Jedi for me because there some things that I really enjoyed and then when I go back and think about I read some of the bad moments and things I didn’t like. Also I’ve been getting into the fandom recently and I’ve discovered some problems with the show so with my rewatching I want to see what I think about all these issues and how I think they should have gone down.

I love season two! Honestly it might be my favorite season. Each episode is just so amazing, the characters are wonderful, and the ending! THE ENDING! I’ll talk about that later because spoilers. If I had to give the whole season a letter rating I would have to give it an A+ because honestly every episode is amazing. I love each one because they play out so beautifully. Every episode gets an A+ let’s just get that out right now.  I honestly can’t pick my favorite because they are all so good and I have a great time watching them. I will be getting more spoilery so if you haven’t watched season one then you have to leave. Go watch and then come back. There are three episodes and all four seasons plus the Christmas special are on Netflix. If you have watched it yet, I highly recommend it. Bye Non spoiler people!

WARNING SPOILERS!

Let’s talk about one before we begin. So let’s talk about Johnlock for a second. If you don’t know Johnlock is the ship between Sherlock and John and it is very popular and many people ship it. I have never had a problem with Johnlock. Even before I started shipping it I never had a problem with it because honestly there was no reason for me to hate. It was a ship and I had a lot of them so it didn’t bother me. But the thing about Johnlock though is that I don’t believe that the writers won’t let it happen. This has always stopped me from shipping them because I never wanted to ship something that I knew the writers were too scared to make happen. You can say that they don’t want to change the basics of the story but Sherlock is a retelling and changing parts of the story is the fucking point of a retelling!

That’s the end of my rant so let’s talk about the Scandal in Belgravia which is the first episode in season two. This episode is soo good! It also has some of the more iconic Sherlock moments that you have probably seen like the I am Sherlocked and the sheet scene and the scene where they meet Irene Adler and she is naked. So many different things come from this episode. It’s just so good. We step up in this season because we have the threat of Moriarty just looming in the background and he is still there we just don’t know what he is going to do next. There is less of a set up for this episode as we know the characters and everything so all that the beginning of this episode does is get us off that cliff we were hanging on and example somethings that have happened since the pool incident. It does a good job though and it’s a lot of fun to watch them go through clients who just get weirder and weirder which I’ll bring up later.

I feel like I should talk about Irene Adler because I’ve always found her so cool and awesome but like I said I’ve been looking more onto tumblr people don’t like how she was treated mainly because she says that she is gay and she sort of falls in love with Sherlock. Well I do agree that it is a terrible way to treat a lesbian character but I’ve thought that Irene was bisexual because it is mentioned several times that she has been with both men and women. Also many bi people say that they are gay and there have been many tweets talking about how that is okay. I also didn’t think that she was in love with Sherlock. I think they loved the idea of the other and they would probably have a really funny friendship but I never thought that they truly loved each other. This is just my opinion and I couldn’t find anything that confirmed that she was a lesbian. Let me know what you think of this whole thing. Other then that I always join her in this episode. Lara Pulver is wonderful and I love her so much as this character!

I love how she just plays with him and outsmarts him almost all the time! It’s just so good. I know a lot of people have a problem with the female characters and I completely understand that but anytime I get one this show I always love them because there is never enough of them. The mystery of this episode is basically they are trying get some very private photos of Irene and a member of the Royal family from her and it starts out simple but it grows into something more. She has connections to Moriarty and they are working together and it is revealed that a code that she had Sherlock crack was a trick to fool a terrorist into blowing up a plane that was filled with dead bodies. The clients that they had talked to before had all something to do with the bodies in the plane. This episode is just so amazing! I obviously give this episode an A+ because it’s just so amazing and I have the best time watching it.

The second episode is the Hounds of Baskerville! Again it is so good! This episode has also been one of my favorites because the Hound of Baskervilles was the first Sherlock Holmes book that I ever read. SO I was like yeah I know stuff I’m educated I’m cool! Besides that I love this episode because it has some funny moments, some really cool moments, and some really intense moments and they were all mixed together so beautifully and I love it! This episode follows Sherlock and John as they take a case where a man says that his father was killed by a hound when he was younger and he has seen it again which causes him to go and get help. This episode sort of plays with the idea of the trope what is real and what is fake. It doesn’t use it a lot which makes work great here. I was scared when this episode first came out because I didn’t know how they were going to work with the hound but they did a pretty good job with it. They make you wonder if it is really real or if they are just crazy.

This episode has one of the coolest scenes which is after Sherlock sees the hound he and John are at the hotel and Sherlock literally just deduces everything about two people who are sitting at a table near them. He just talks so fast and it’s just so cool to watch happen and I think that it is the best. We have seen him deduce stuff before but watching it happen like this is just so awesome and I live for it! I love scenes like that. They are always my favorite. John and Sherlock are both great in this episode. You see a lot of their friendship in this episode and them dealing with the other person. The beginning scene where Sherlock just comes back to their flat covered in blood and it’s so funny. Then the whole thing about Sherlock needing a cigarette or a case and John is just like ‘You just had a case’ and it’s so funny. I also love the scene where they run into Greg and Sherlock is just like ‘Is that why you are calling yourself Greg?’ and John is like ‘That’s his name.’ and it’s great!

We also see the mind palace for the first time. It is mainly mentioned a couple times after this or I could just be remembering things wrong but hey I’m rewatching so we’ll find out soon. The end scene is amazing. And I forget about it! I don’t know how but I did! Like during my rewatch of this episode after John and Sherlock are finished talking I was just like okay onto the next one but then this scene came and I was ‘WHAT?’. Watching this scene just had me shook because one I didn’t remember it and two it let’s us know that Moriarty is coming back and we aren’t gonna be able to handle it! It is a small scene but basically you see Moriarty in a jail cell and Mycroft just appears and tells someone to let him go. They then take him out of the cell and you see that the cell is covered with Sherlock’s name and the episode ends!! HOW THE FUCK DID I FORGET THIS SCENE! Maybe I just was thinking about everything else in this episode and of what happens in the next one that I didn’t focus on it. I loved this episode and I would give it an A+ for being great.

And now we are going to discuss episode three, the Reichenbach Fall. The episode that destroyed the internet back in 2012. If you are not in the fandom at that time and saw a lot of people freaking out I’ll explain why in a second. I remember watching this episode I was in my parents’ room with them and my sisters and we were all sitting in bed watching this episode when suddenly Sherlock faces off with Moriarty on a roof. He tells Sherlock that he is going to suicide and this whole scene was just intense because I didn’t know if he was going to figure everything out or if he was going to jump. I thought for a second that he had Moriarty in a corner and that he was going to be okay and that everyone was going to be okay and then Moriarty kills himself! There are snipers on John, Mrs. Hudson, and Greg and only Moriarty could stop them but he is died so he has jump and John comes back because he knows that Sherlock lied to him. Sherlock calls him and he tells him that he was a fake and John doesn’t believe him. Then he jumps and I was so emotional!

I had not read any Sherlock stories before watching the show and I had no idea that Sherlock does die in the original story and it is later revealed that he faked his death. I didn’t find that out until like years later I honestly can’t remember when. Despite that though I didn’t want to believe that he was die. I had waited so long for this season and there were only six episodes and this wasn’t going to be the end! So I was just sitting in my parents’ bed crying my cries out and not believing that this was the end while my parents kept saying that it probably was the end because Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman were both really busy but I still believed. Then we get to John at Sherlock’s grave and I keep thinking that he is gonna come out and surprise him but that didn’t happen and so for a second I thought maybe my parents are right. BUT THEN as John is walking away we see Sherlock fucking standing in the grave watching John and I was so happy to be right!!!!!

Other then that this episode is an intense rollercoaster. So the beginning is great because you see Moriarty breaking into all these different places and then he puts the crown jewels on and it’s just one of the best scenes. It’s iconic! The whole episode Moriarty is playing with him, giving him all these different things to solve so that everyone begins doubting what Sherlock can do. When Sherlock is arrested and that guy just shows up, he is like Sherlock is a freak and John just punches him in the face and he gets arrested too. IT’s soo good! Every single moment was just so intense like I had already scene this episode and I was on the edge of my sit. I had forget some scenes because the ending is mainly what I remember from this episode so honestly rewatching this episode was really good for me because now that I remember everything I understand some of the jokes I’ve been seeing on Tumblr and Pinterest. I love this episode so much! It is intense and emotional and I miss this season because it was just so epic. I’m going to give this episode an A+ because of all the reasons I said before.

I loved this season. It was so great. Every episode was just amazing! Honestly this is my favorite season because every episode was amazing and I wasn’t let down by anything. I love this show! I’m excited to watch season three because I haven’t watched it in a while. Even though I don’t love season three as much as i love season two but it is really and the first two episodes are amazing. Have you guys watched this show? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way.

Posted in Review, T.V., You have to watch

YOU HAVE TO WATCH GRAVITY FALLS!

Greetings Earthling! Today I’m reviewing Gravity Falls!

f1a80b13549dcc160b4a7d0c82948341e503d9c5

+ A: Perfect story with get characters and fantastic plot line.

I watched this show in 2017 and I think that I have watched it about five times since then and each time I cry and I laugh and I have never loved a show as much. It has honestly has become one of my favorite shows of all time. It’s just soooo good and wonderful. I love this show so much. If you don’t know what this show was about then I’m going to tell you right now and then you are going to and watch it because it is so good. This show follows Dipper and Mabel Pines who are twins that are sent to a town called Gravity Falls for the summer to live with their Great Uncle Stan. They soon discover that the town of Gravity Falls is filled with mystery and unknown creatures and they find a journal that has some answers but also adds more questions.

The first time I ever watched an episode of this show was some time around like 2013 or 2014 and I was at the someplace and they had an episode playing on the TV. I watched it and I had a fun time watching it but unfortunately I had stopped watching Disney Channel at that time so I wasn’t able to start watching. Flash forward a couple years later, the show ended and I watched Nostalgia Critic and he was talking about this show and I thought maybe I should give it a try. So in fall of 2017 I needed something to watch and I watched this show over the weekend and I cried and laugh so much. Then I rewatched it and cried again and then I watched it with my sister and we both cried. I’ve watched this show so many times and I love it. It has honestly become one of my all time favorite shows.

I love the characters and the story. I wish it had more episodes but honestly I remember how satisfying the ending is and I don’t care that there are only two seasons because they are so wonderful. If you haven’t watched this show then I highly recommend it because it will make you laugh and cry. It is so beautiful and wonderful. That’s it for my non spoiler section. This show is on Hulu and it is good! WATCH IT!

WARNING SPOILERS

SO during my rewatch I’ve spotted so many different things that lead up to the answers and the mysteries that come later on. Like how Bill appears at the end of the opening credits. In the episode where Dipper and Mabel switch bodies, Stan finds a pair of glasses  and you seeing him staring at them with a sad look on his face and it’s Ford’s glasses! It’s just so sad! The plot twist in season two that Stan had a twin brother and you see what happen to them and I just sob because it was so sad. How can this show go from making me laugh to making me cry so fast!

I honestly love season two but I can’t watch it without crying. Usually when I watch something I cry the first two times but then I stop after that but with Gravity Falls I’ve watched it like five times and I cry every time! It’s just so good and I love these characters so much. The last four episodes of season two always break me. I happy cry every time I watch the ending because I want more episodes but I’m so satisfied with how it ended that I don’t want more. It don’t want to ruin it. It’s just so perfect!

The characters will always be some of my favorites. They start off like these stereotypes of characters we have seen before but the more you watch the more you learn about them and you see them go through a journey and how much they care about other. I love the relationship between Mabel and Dipper because they just have one of the best sibling relationships I’ve seen on TV. The scenes where they fight are always the hardest for me because they are just so close and they work so well together. In season two after we met Ford I was so scared that Mabel and Dipper were going to be like Ford and Stan and the finale would be some Gilmore Girls full circle shit where they get into a fight and don’t speak for years. I’m so glad that the ending is a happy one.

I love this show and the characters and the story and I will watch forever! Have you guys watched this show? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way. You should follow my book club here and other social media links. I posted rants like this once a week every week.

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir Review | Season 2 EP 4: Riposte

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing the fourth episode of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir season two!

Riposte_-_Ending_Card

It’s been a couple months since my last Miraculous post and I talked about how season two release date had been announced. I was so excited and I watched all of them and I wanted more. There were only 12 episodes instead of 13 like I thought there were going to be but I still had the best time watching it. I haven’t watched it as many times as I’ve watched season one and that’s mainly because with season one I love watching the story grow and then with season two right now I only have half an arc. Once I get a whole arc I’ll watch it over and over again while I wait for season three. Back to what I was talking so even though they said the episode order was going to be the same it wasn’t. So this aired as episode five  but it is on Netflix as episode four. I will going on the Netflix though just because it’s the order I watched the rest of the episodes in.

Also cause I haven’t said this yet I have other posts because I love this show and I will probably talk about forever. I did two review for the first season which you can read here and here. I did a theory post here and I did a review for the first episode of season two here, the second episode here, and the third episode here. I will have a complete review for the first half of season two soon. I thought that I would be posted before this but it is and I’m too lazy to change the post schedule. I will have an episode review for each episode that is out right now and they will be posted on the last Friday of every month so look out for those.

Riposte is a very good episode. It is more focused on Adrien and Ladybug because something that I’ve noticed is that some episodes seem to focus on one of ships from the love square. I had a lot of fun with this episode. I honestly I loved the villain for this episode. I just feel like she kicked ass. The sweet moments between the two are so good and fun to watch. There isn’t a lot of plot to this episode like to add to the story but I think that introducing this character could lead to some drama that may happen later and I will talk about that more later. I would give this episode an +A. That’s it for my nonspoilery section! If you haven’t watched this episode yet then leave and then come back. BYE!

WARNING SPOILERS

So this episode starts with Marinette auditioning for the fencing because Adrien is on the fencing team and she thinks that it’s a good way for her and Adrien to get along. There are some sweet moments between Adrien and Marinette as he helps her learn about fencing. I have to say one of my favorite things about the episodes we have seen so far is seeing Marinette grow and be able to talk to Adrien with being a complete idiot. I mean she still has a long way to go but she is getting better and it’s so much fun to watch. So they are in the middle of practice when a girl named Kagami shows up and she fights Adrien. Once the fight is over Marinette is asked to find out who won because she was the only one watching and she guess that it was Adrien. Kagami gets upset and then you know what happens when someone in this city gets upset, she becomes Riposte and wants to fight Adrien.

Let’s talk about Kagami for a second. Now I will probably make a lot of people mad but I don’t see the interest. She is a badass and I did like her in this episode but when this episode aired everyone loved her on a different level. Everyone loved her on the level that they love Marinette and Adrien and I didn’t feel the same.  I’ve only seen her in one episode and she doesn’t appear for the rest of the season so I don’t know how I’m able to love her on the same level. Look she is a great character and I would love to see more of her but until we do I can’t say that I love her. I just want to know more and I don’t what her to just be added to be trouble for the love triangle. I feel like we should add her to be like a really cool side character or be a fun friend for Marinette to have. I don’t want her and Marinette to be enemies because I hate when they take two really cool female characters and make them enemies because of a boy! IT SUCKS!

Also is Adrien suppose to believe that Kagami is Ladybug? If that’s the case then we are just making Adrien dumb because there is no way that he believes that. Now they have the same color but other then that I don’t see it. She kind of has a bob haircut going and Ladybug’s hair is always in pigtails. Her eyes are brown and not blue and I know Adrien knows this because of that poem in Dark Cupid where he says that she has bluebell eyes. There is a moment where he looks at her ring and I got the feeling he thought that was her a miraculous but like he knows that Ladybug Miraculous are earrings what was the point! I just think it was stupid and like they added Kagami’s character to add drama and I hate that. I saw a lot of hate on Marinette for this episode which I didn’t like because I didn’t think she deserved it. It was mainly because everyone thought that she was the reason Kagami was akamaized. I honestly don’t really agree with that because she didn’t know what she was doing and she said that she wasn’t sure Adrien won. Maybe she had a part in her getting akamized but I don’t think that it was all her fault.

A thing that we discover in this episode is that if you get hurt in civilian form then the injury will still be around once you change into your superhero uniform as Adrien gets hurt and then when he changes to Chat Noir the injury is still there. I was kind of hoping that this would somehow lead to Marinette thinking something about and get to thinking maybe something is happen but she didn’t and I’m going to have to wait for forever for a reveal. I just need one. I needed one before but I’m done with this teasing shit they keep doing to me. It’s not fair.

I think that’s it for my review for this episode. IF you would like for me to review the next ones then let me know. Also I have not seen the rest of season two and please don’t leave spoilers in the comments or on my social media thank you very much. I will be watching the rest of season two when it airs and you should to. Have you guys seen season two yet? If you have what did you think?

Sherlock Season One Review!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing Season One of Sherlock!

sherlock_series_tv_poster_by_marrakchi-d5bcpfa

So ever since I’ve read the Charlotte Holmes series I’ve been in this kick lately to read or watch a lot of Sherlock Holmes. After I read Sherlock Holmes: Complete Novels and Stories Volume One, I decided to rewatch Sherlock. Sherlock used to be on my all time favorite shows but I can’t decided if I still do because I have very mixed feelings on the last season. So I will be rewatching the show and reviewing each of the seasons! Season one is great season as I think it does a good job setting everything up and it’s soo good! I love how with in episode one and two there are the mysteries and they come together so beautifully and at the end of each episode they add onto this other threat that makes the third episode so wonderful and satisfying.

If I had to give the whole season a rating all together then it would probably be an -A. Even though I do fine this show get and wonderful, I don’t love episode two and it can be kind of slow at some points. I will be getting more spoilery so if you haven’t watched season one then you have to leave. Go watch and then come back. There are three episodes and they are on Netflix. If you have watched this yet, I highly recommend it. Bye Non spoiler people!

WARNING SPOILERS!

Let’s start with the first episode the Study in Pink which is loosely based off the first Sherlock Holmes book the Study in Scarlet. I’ve seen this episode a lot mainly because when I started watching this show, I watched without my family, then with my mom, and then with the rest of my family and then a couple more times after that. So weirdly I had a hard time getting through this episode in my rewatch because I’ve seen it so many times. Never the less it is still a good episode. It can be kinda of slow at some points but like I have said before with Sherlock retellings they normally start off slow because they have to set everything. I’m glad that this episode does that because it does it so wonderfully. You met John and you see all this stuff about him and then you meet Sherlock and as the episodes go on you feel like you really know these characters.

If you don’t know there was a sixty minute unaired pilot but then BBC requested that they make it 90 minutes. I just found that out recently so if you didn’t know that then fun fact for you. While watching this episode I sort of had a debate with myself about whether this episode would have worked better as sixty minutes. I think it work though as a 90 minute thing. I just allowed more things to be introduced and more time for us to get into the story. I do really the love the mystery of this episode. I don’t know it’s just so interesting. I love the scene where Sherlock is with the cab driver and it’s just so tense and then when John shot him I was like ‘YES’ because I thought something bad was going to happen even though I was only on episode one.

I do love the acting in this show. Both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are great in this show. Everyone knows that so I’m basically repeating what people have already said but I mean it. They are so great as these characters. They always do a wonderful job. The Study in Pink was a great episode even though it did have some slow moments. I think that I’m going to give then The Study in Pink a -A.

Now onto the Blind Banker which has always been one of my least favorite episodes simply because for the longest time I had no clue what the hell was happening in this episode. Over my last two rewatches of this episodes I’ve exactly come to like this episode more as I’ve started paying attention and I figured everything out. The Blind Banker is an original idea episode meaning it wasn’t based off a Sherlock Holmes book. Honestly during this rewatch I really liked this episode more then I previously had. It’s still not my favorite episode but I did enjoy it more. I really like how they set so many things up and then they all come to together. It’s just so good! One thing I didn’t like about this episode was the police guy whose name I don’t remember. He was just so annoying! Like shit was going down and he was just like ‘Oh I don’t like Sherlock so I’m not going to do anything’ and I was like ‘Dude you are the worst cop ever’.

I mean Sherlock and John also kind of got on my nerves as like Sherlock just keeps leaving and then John gets very angry and I was like ‘Guys come on’. I think my favorite thing about this episode was the ending. We get another reference to someone master minding everything. It’s just so good. All we know is that someone called M is doing this and they kill the lady behind everything. So much happens and it gets us started for the next episode which I’ll talk about in second. Another reason this episode is good because  it isn’t as slow as the first episode. We know who the characters so there less to set up and we can just get started and learn the mystery.

Story wise this episode is good. I feel like I have been too hard on this episode in the past because honestly even though there are things that bother me a bit I do enjoy it. It still isn’t my first episode as I’m not that into the mystery of this episode. I don’t know just with the first episode they mystery was so interesting and I was really into it. With this one when it took while for me to get into it. I did enjoy the Blind Banker, it’s not my favorite but I enjoy it. I’m giving the Blind Banker an +B.

The next episode is The Great Game and it is my favorite episode in season one. Where the villain that has been lurking in the shadows finally comes into play and it is great and dark and so good!!!!! SO in this episode when see the smiley face on the wall which has now become like an icon and we get Sherlock being bored. If you have been confused whenever those things have been referenced well now you know. Baker Street blows up everything is okay but they find a pink phone which starts leading the to mysteries and if they don’t solve that mystery then a person will die. Moriarty is my villain of Sherlock and he is just so amazing and the fact is you don’t even know him before he is introduced. You don’t even know his name until the last couple minutes of the episode.

The whole episode is just Sherlock fighting against this guy who we don’t even know which is honestly the thrill of this episode. You don’t know who the villain is but you know what he can do so it is enough for you to fear him. This opens a lot up for who this guy and the first time I watched this episode and Sherlock was about to have to show down and John comes out. For a second I thought it was John but then he takes off the coat and he is wearing a bomb and AHHH! This episode is just so intense and its great! I also think that this episode is good because Moriarty just appears and we don’t think anything about him so when he finally reveals himself, it’s just so shocking!

The cliffhanger was so great because you think that everything is going to fine and then Moriarty just comes back and it’s like fuck. And then Sherlock points the gun at the bomb and the screen goes black. I watched this for the first time in 2011 so I didn’t wait as long as everyone else did but still I was shook and I was so scared for season two. I really enjoyed this episode because there are so many different elements to it and the climax is intense and epic and honestly this is way the show is great. I’m going to give this episode an +because it just so good.

I love this season. I love this show and I can’t wait to rewatch the rest of it because it’s just so great! It is so wonderful. I love how everything is done and it’s so great.

Top 10 Favorite TV Shows! | 2018 Spring Edition

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a top 10 of all my favorite shows of spring of 2018! 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!

But first some honorable mentions!

The Good Doctor

The_Good_Doctor_2017

I started this show because of Freddie Highmore. I love him so I started watching this show with my sisters and my mom and even though I’m not a big fan of medical dramas I have really enjoyed this episode I have watched. Like this isn’t one of my favorite shows but I’m having a good time.

The Residents

The-Resident-poster-e1523937070145.jpg

Another medical drama that I started because of an actor. The guy that plays Logan on Gilmore Girls is in this show so I started watching it. I don’t really pay a lot attention while I watch this show. Most of the time there will be like one story line that I’m interested and I’ll focus on that. It is a good story though.

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

JN

I started this show because I got the book and I didn’t finish that book because it was so boring. It was like 1000 pages so I didn’t want to waste my time when I wasn’t enjoying. I was on Netflix and I discovered that BBC made a mini series about it so I started watching that. I’m on episode five and I’m liking it but I’m not loving it. The acting is good and the sets are beautiful but I’m not that into the story.


#10 Fraiser

12867

I put this on my winter list and I have now finished it now and oh my god it was good! I had the best time watching this show. It was so much fun. I don’t really know how I feel about the finale episode because it just ends and leaves things out in the open. Despite that though I had a great time. It was amazing and this show is so funny. I would highly recommend it.


#9 Crazy Ex Girlfriend

I have been watching this show for a while and I always forget to put this show on one of these list. Honestly it would have been higher on this list but unfortunately I had the hardest time watching this season. I do love that they are trying to talk more about mental health and I think that it is good for them but I wasn’t in the best place when I started watching and it wasn’t the fun show that I signed up for. I do still love this show, I just wish I had watched it at a different time.


#8 iZombie

izombie

I was so worried about this season given how season three ended but honestly I’m really enjoying this season so far. It’s talking about politics and the real right now but it’s not all at the same time and it’s so much fun to watch. If you don’t know this show follows Liv who is a zombie and when she eats brains, she get that person’s memories and uses this to solve crimes. It’s such a fun show and I highly recommend it.


#7 Pride And Prejudice

colin-firth-as-mr-darcy-in-pride-and-prejudice-bbc-adaptation-1995-lizzy.jpg

I watched the BBC adaption of Pride and Prejudice. I read Pride and Prejudice this year and my best friend has been telling me about this show for years and she loves it so I started watching it with my mom. I had a lot of fun watching this. It is a really good adaption of the book. Like it’s really good! The acting is wonderful and it’s a great show.


#6 Black Lightning

black-lightening

There was so much hype around this show before it can out and I was really excited to watch and I can say that this show is great! It is so amazing! I think that I was a little scared that it would be like most of CW’s superhero shows but so far it has been great and I’m so glad I started watching it. If you haven’t watched Black Lightning yet then I highly recommend that you do.


#5 Miraculous Ladybug

ladybug

Part One of season two has finally dropped onto Netflix. I’m reviewing is coming soon. Just look out for that. I really enjoyed season two. Honestly there were so many different things about it that gave me so many emotions. Because I’m doing a full review I don’t think I’m going to go into most of my feelings but you should know that I loved this season. I can’t wait for more episodes and Luka is overrated.


#4 We Bare Bears

https---blueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com-uploads-card-image-455002-3c823b15-5f1b-4082-a45a-fb9bef31d04d

I started watching this show because I just wanted something fun to watch. This show is funny, adorable, and emotional. I love this show. It is so much. The three bears remind me of my sisters and me which just adds onto it. It’s a lot of fun and I highly recommend this show.


#3 A Series of Unfortunate Events

series-of-unfortunate-events-canceled-renewed-netflix-590x331

Season two finally dropped! I love this show! I love the books and this is just an amazing adaption of them. This season is longer by like two episodes so season three will be the final season. It will cover books 10 – 13. I’m excited but I’m always scared because even though I’m excited to watch and I know what happens. I knew what happened this season though and I was like so scared and emotional the whole. This was great and everyone is sleeping on this show! Go watch it!


#2 Santa Clarita Diet

Screenshot-at-Mar-08-21-13-49

I had been waiting for a season two for so long and it finally happened and I’m so happy! I was worried about this season but the second I started watching it all my worries disappeared. This second season was much better then first and it is so amazing and if you haven’t watched this show then I highly recommend it because it’s so funny!


#1 One Day at Time

OneDayAtATime

The show that has made me laugh and cry all at the same time. We are getting a season three and I’m so excited and I love it so much. It is so amazing!


And that is my favorite shows of Spring 2018! Do you guys agree with what I’ve said? Have you guys watched any of these shows? If not you really should.

Posted in Review, T.V., You have to watch

YOU HAVE TO WATCH STAR VS THE FORCES OF EVIL!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about Star vs. the Forces of Evil!

r_starvstheforcesofevil_hero_359432e3

*i couldn’t find a trailer so here is the opening

+ A: Perfect story with get characters and fantastic plot line.

I don’t know why I’m making this review. I watched Star in Fall of 2017 and I thought about doing a review but I was so stressed around that time that I didn’t do it. But now I’m still a little stressed but less stressed then normal and I’ve been rewatching a couple episodes and I’ve been looking at the summary for episodes of season three and I’m really emotional so we are going to talk about it. I have only have seen season two so I will mainly be talking about those two seasons. I might talk about season three from my nerves to want might happened and from what I’ve heard has happened and how I’m very emotional. I started watching Star because I had just finished Gravity Falls and I wanted something like that because I needed a new show to watch and I remember people had been talking about this show on Tumblr so I decided to start watching and just like Gravity Falls I didn’t expect to love this show as much as I did nor did I expect to make me cry.

Man kid shows are a lot more intense then the shows I watched when I was little. Seriously! So if you don’t know Star Vs the Forces of Evil is a show about a Princess named Star who when she is fourteen is gifted a magical wand that is passed down to the heir of the Thrones and they are always women! Such is so great! It’s like Buffy but with more magic wands and it’s a family thing. After she sets some things on fire, her parents send her to Earth where she can continuing her training cause there is no magic on Earth. On Earth she mets Marco Diaz who she moves in with him and his family and Marco helps her with Earth things while Star gives him what he wanted which was some adventure in his life and together they fight monsters that come after Star so that they can steal her magical wand.

Honestly if you like anime or cartoons or just a fun show that has an impact then I would highly recommend this show. This show has everything you want friendship, strong female characters, a male character who doesn’t suck and is so funny, traveling through dimensions, a super interesting storyline, and from what I know season three gets more intense so enjoy that fun season while it last friends. Star is so funny and adorable and yes she made not understand some things sometimes but she cares so much about her friends and her family so when it comes down to it she will take care of them because she loves them. Marco is such a wonderful friend and one of my favorite characters I love him and will protect him with my life! Also Starco forever. I think that it is for my spoilery free section and if you haven’t watched Star vs the Forces of Evil then you should leave if you don’t want to get spoiled! BYE!

SPOILERS

I said it before I never expect to love this show as much as I do. I thought that this show was just so cute and I loved the relationship and the characters are so wonderful and entertaining that I was having such a good time. But then Toffee just shows up and I was like noo. This is my happy show please but make my happy show sad by hurting one of my characters! When he took Marco and Star had to break her wand I started crying because it was sad seeing my baby girl crying. Then the hug between after they discover the wand it was so beautiful and wonderful. I ship them so much! Starco forever. After that episode I was just thinking maybe this show will go back to be happy but then season two came around and it was like FUCK NO BITCH YOU CONTINUE CRYING! The whole time I was watching season two I had this feeling of something is going to happen and it is going to be bigger then last time.

Honestly I didn’t know how I felt about Star and Marco being a couple that first season because I thought they would have been cute but they have such a good friendship that I don’t want that to be ruined. Then season two came along and now I’m just like there is no other ship that isn’t Starco! STARCO IS CANCON! That episode where Marco gets locked in the closet and he has to figure out her secret to get out and he finds the journal that says her feelings on Marco and that was when I was like ‘Shit! She has a crush on Marco! What’s gonna happen?’ and then nothing like major happened for the next couple of episodes. But then the Bon Bon the birthday clown episode came and Marco gets a date with Jackie and Star gets jealous and spies on them on their date and I was just oh no things are about to get real intense up in here! Then Star mets 30 year old Marco and is super attracted to him and I was like who can blame you but then I was like   Star thinks Marco is hot and you can’t fight me on this!

We then have the Sleepover episode and the truth box says that one of them is lying about who they have a crush on but then they get into a whole thing and the box gets destroyed and thrown away. But then at the end of the episode Star screams Marco’s name and the box just goes ‘Yes Star has a crush on-‘ and then it crushed again! I was just like what! You can’t do this to me! Then the FUCKING JUST FRIENDS EPISODE! OMG! I just want Star to be happy and she just seemed so upset and I just wanted to protect her and give her love! If you don’t think she was upset then fight me because she basically destroyed a sign. Then comes Face the Music with Patrick Stump and he sings a song about the book being lost and Star having a thing for Marco and again I just wanted to comfort her because SHE DOESN’T DESERVE THIS PAIN! THEN STARCRUSHED HAPPENED AND I WAS CRYING SO MUCH! What is with this show and sad season finales?

The two are both awkward around each other ever since the song day happened and after a while they finally make up but then her mom tells her she has to leave because Toffee has returned and she finally confesses her feelings then leaves. He chase her up the stairs to talk to her but then the room is empty and then the credits is just silence as it shows the Diaz house and the place where Star’s room used to be and I just started crying because she left and she told Marco she liked him but before they could talk about she left and AHHHHHH! How could this show do this to me? I thought that this show would be cute and fun and it is that but then it just had to go and break me. I love Star and Marco and I just want them to be together. If they don’t get together I’m going to be so sad. I like Tom. He is fun character and I enjoy his friendship with Marco but I don’t like him being with Star. I’m sorry!

I don’t want Marco with Kelly either or Janna or Jackie…. I’m sorry if you disagree but this is just my opinion. I do think that Janna and Tom would be cute and I only think that because I read about it in a fanfiction and I thought that was cute. I haven’t see any episodes of season three but I have read some of the episode and I got so emotional that I started crying. I know it seems dumb but I love it so much.

That’s my post of Star Vs the Forces of Evil! Or aka why Starco is best post. I hope you enjoyed this post! If you haven’t watched this show, I highly recommend it! IF you have watched it then what do you think? Do you love it? Do you ship Starco? I hope so because I do and if they don’t become canon then I’m going to scream! Have you guys watched this show? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way.
