Greetings Earthling! Today I’m reviewing Gravity Falls!


+ 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!


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!

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


*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!


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.

13 Reasons Why TV SHOW review / Rant | Epic Adaptations

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about the hit Netflix tv show based off the book by Jay Asher which is my July book of the month!


If you don’t know, I’m doing a book club called Epic Adaptations where every month I pick a book that has a movie adaptation and I review both the adaptation and the book. If you want to know more about it then click out this post here and if you want to read about my thoughts on the book then click here to check that out. If you like 13 Reasons Why then you shouldn’t read this review because you probably won’t like it.

So if you remembered from my review of the book then you should know that I don’t really like 13 Reasons Why the book and if you want to know then go read read my review of the book. I wasn’t looking forward to this show even before I re read the book, I still wasn’t looking forward to this show. Then it dropped and it trended on Tumblr for like a week and I went to school and everyone was talking about it. It was the new thing. I tired to give it a shot and I got like two minutes in and then I stopped because I didn’t like it. It just wasn’t close to the book in anyway. Now that I have re read the book and I’m doing this so I have watched the show and I don’t like it either. It just wasn’t good. I only really liked Clay and hell sometimes I didn’t even really like him at some points.

I can’t do a non spoiler part because I just have to rant about everything so if you haven’t watched this you have to leave because I’m going to spoil you in this.



OKAY! So where the hell do I began? The first episode was good which surprised. It was pretty close to book besides some thing like making Hannah and Clay friends and giving more flashbacks and I didn’t hate it. Liked that it made them friends because I thought it would have been better for their relationship. I’m thinking my rating will be like a high 90% but then episode to rolled around and my rating and my liking dropped. It dropped like every episode.

Okay that’s start with the fact that Tony is like Hannah Baker’s freaking secret agent. He was being really weird and mysterious and it was annoying as hell. I didn’t like his character. His only purpose in the book was for Clay to steal the walkman from him which Clay does in the show but then Tony just shows up everywhere like some old guy that appears in fantasy movies to give warnings and inspirational messages and I found it so weird! I didn’t really like his character because for one like I said before he was weird and one that’s literally all he is around for. His character is only for being that and that’s it nothing else so you don’t get to learn anything about him that would make him interesting. Guess the fact that he’s a secret agent is what makes him an interesting character but I didn’t it like that.

Another thing I didn’t like which was something I was half way looking forward to was us getting a closer look at all the characters. We never met any other characters besides Clay and Hannah in the book of 13 Reasons Why so when I watched Christine’s review of the show she said that we get a closer look at the characters who have tapes and Hannah’s parents. The other characters that have tapes in this story suck. They aren’t great people and they for the first couple episodes they are going after Clay because they don’t want the tapes to go to Bryce who raped Hannah and is the worst out of all them. I’m like why you guys all still friends? You know what he did what the fuck are you guys doing? None of them are interesting and the story is trying to get me to connect with them but I can’t. We one don’t know a lot about them or see them in any scene where they are doing something good. I liked Hannah’s parents because they are going through something that is hard to go through and it’s probably the only thing that is shown well on this show.

Can we talk about the weird dream sequence with Hannah’s mom killing Clay? What was that? I mean I would understand why he would have that if he had listen to his tape and then had met up with Hannah’s mom and had that dream I would understand but he didn’t so what was the point. Also if you are going to make Clay and Hannah closer then they were in the book why is Clay saying that they weren’t close! What was that! They are clearly friends! Also can we talked about the fact that Hannah doesn’t even die the same way! In this she gets in the bath and cuts her wrist but in the book she takes pills. Why did we need to make this change? To make it more dramatic because that doesn’t look go on Netflix or the people who run the show. You literally changed her death to make it more dramatic.

Also they shouldn’t have add the suicide or the rape scenes to the show because it can trigger people and they knew. The people went to therapist and specialist to figure out how they should do these scenes and they were told not to do it because people would be triggered and they completely ignored that! The message is still the same for this show from the book which is that love can heal depression which I don’t agree and they have this whole thing were Clay feels guilty about Hannah because she said that he could have saved her if he loved her. I have two reaction for this which is no not true she has no right to tell him this because it’s not true. It doesn’t work like that. And two this boy cared about you so much. Yes he could have been a better friend at some points but he loved her. THIS SHOW MAKES ME SO MAD! I need to stop. Okay we were done! This show started out really well but with every episode I liked less and it got less accurate.

Accuracy: 43%

The character names were right, the people on the tapes were right but I didn’t remember Justin being on there twice. It wasn’t that close to the book and I won’t be watching it again. I didn’t have a fun time watching this. It was boring it has the same messages as the book which I didn’t like and the show runners did somethings that I didn’t agree with which is why I’m giving it a D.

Rating: D for being really boring

I’m not giving it an F because I do think that the acting is great and I did enjoy that first episode so I don’t think can give it an F. I didn’t enjoy it and I wouldn’t watch it again because it felt longer then 13 freaking episodes! Also WHY IS THERE TO BE A SEASON TWO! WE DON’T NEED A SEASON TWO! *sighs to calm down Okay I’m done. For now at least. I’m not going to watch season two because it probably has nothing to do with the book and can we talk about how weird it is that Netflix renewed this but canceled Girl Boss, Sense 8, and the Get Down. What the hell? I have a poll on Twitter to decide what book I should read next for Epic Adaptations so if you could please check that out.


Right now it’s between The Handmaid’s Tale and Still Star-Crossed and I can’t decide so please help! I don’t know what post is coming up next but look out for it. I’m so glad I’m done reviewing this show. 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.

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about my new obsession Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir! *or miraculous or miraculous ladybug depending on where you live


Rating: -A: Good book with characters that got better and a slow plot line

If you are on the internet or Tumblr a lot, then chances are you have heard of this show. That’s how I heard about it. I was just scrolling through Tumblr and I saw gifs of it and I found out what it called and I thought this looks cute. I went to ALA this week and my sister had started watching this show but I didn’t know what the show was called until we were in the car on my way home when I figured out what she was watching. At first I thought it was really cheesy but then I spent the rest of the car ride looking over the sit trying to watch it.

This show is a French animated show that follows the two main heroes Marinette Dupain-Cheng aka Ladybug and Adrien Agreste aka Cat Noir. These two have the powers of the miraculous giving them the ability to transform and get cool powers. The show follows them fighting and protecting Paris along with their Kwamis, Tikki and Plagg, and their main enemy is Hawk Moth really wants their miraculous because Marinette and Adrien have the most powerful miraculous and they are very powerful when used together *I really hope I’m not giving anything away. Hawk Moth puts akumas on people who are sad or angry turning them into villains as a chance for Hawk Moth to get their miraculous because he can’t leave his cage.

Every episode is basically the same thing expect with a different villain changing things up a bit for each episode. Like most kids shows. This show is cheesy as hell and is filled with bad puns but despite all that I love it with all my fucking heart and I’m really obsessed with it and as I’m writing this I’m watching the show for the second time but in a different order. I don’t know what it is about this show that makes me love it so much. Through is only one thing that bothers me and I’m not going to talk about it right now because I’m scared of giving spoilers but if you watch the show then you know what  I’m talking about because I’m not the only one bothered by this which is why it has an -A and not an +A.

I love the characters, I love the cheesy lines, I love the story lines, I love this show in general. If you haven’t watched this show then you need to go watch it right. The whole first season is on Netflix a long with the Christmas special. They are like 21 minutes long and there are 25 of them. Go watch them! Do it! That’s it for my non spoilery part of this review so if you haven’t watched this show then you have to leave because I’m not holding anything because this show fucked me up real good.




OKAY SO THIS SHOW IS AMAZING and it ruined me. And it’s only a kid show. If you look at the age group of the show on Netflix then you’ll see that it is for 9 – 12 and I’m none of those ages but I’m not the only one so that’s good. I’m on my third time watching on the show. The first time I watched it in the order Netflix has it but then I went on Wiki and the episode aired in different order so I watched the episode in that order which makes more sense. I recommend watching it that way. Now I’m watching them in a completely random order.

We are just gonna have to jump right in from the beginning because I have no clue where to start *by that I mean the origins episode which is my favorite. We are told that there are these things called the Miraculous which can give anyone powers but they have to be given to the right person or else bad shit happens which is how we get our villain for this story. Hawk Moth *or Adrian’s dad if you are like me and you believe that finds the Moth Brooch and uses it for evil. Master Fu has the all the other miraculous he is like we have to get other heroes out there. Like I said before the show follows Marinette is a sweet girl who is clumsy and wants to be a fashion designer and then we have Adrian who is a cinnamon roll and needs to be protected at all time. Master Fu decides to give Marinette the ladybug earrings and Adrian the cat ring and they become superheroes ad it’s amazing.

No one knows that Marinette is Ladybug or that Adrian is Cat Noir and it’s frustrating as hell! Because Marinette is in love with Adrian who she hated at first because she saw him trying to remove gum from her sit and she thought he was putting it on her first so she was like I hate you but he explained everything and she forgive him and fell in love with him but she has no one clue that he is Cat Noir who is head over heels for Ladybug who is Marinette but he doesn’t know that!! To round it up for you, Marinette loves Adrian who loves Ladybug but doesn’t know it’s Marinette who doesn’t like Cat Noir who is in love with Ladybug and flirts with Marinette. We have a love square with only two people. I didn’t like even think that was possible! I still ship them though and I was so excited when this moment happened.


I CAN I GET A YES!!!!!! Unfortunately she only did this to get him out of the spell he was under and I don’t think he remembers it. But still it happened and I’m love this moment so much! You have to wonder though she only had to give him a small peck and it had to be true love so just think about that *because she loves him too. I’ve been told according to spoilers on twitter that more kisses are coming on seasons two but I don’t know what to believe. The said that they are between Adrien and Marinette but are they just calling them that because those are their real names or because they kiss and not Ladybug and Cat Noir. I’m still excited though!

One of the things that bother me was how they wouldn’t recognized each other and it’s just not them, it’s everyone. No one can piece together that Marinette and Adrian are Ladybug and Cat Noir. Their disguises aren’t that great. It’s just their masks and their outfits, I mean Cat Noir’s hair changes a bit and his eyes are a little different but still. Nothing changes with Marinette like her hair is the same you know blue hair tied in pig tails. It’s like Oliver on the first season of Arrow where he just wears the hoodie and green paint on his eyes and somehow no one sees his face. At least Oliver changes his voice in the first season. I watched a theory on why people couldn’t recognize them and it made sense. The theory was that when they are transform magic is used on them so that people can only recognize as their hero forms. It makes sense because when Chloe dresses up as Ladybug people thought she was Ladybug despite the fact that she has blonde hair and wears it in a ponytail. But Alya thought that Adrien could be Cat Noir with a costume on so that kind of disproves that theory. I don’t know! Okay I DONT’ KNOW! I hoping that this is explained when season two comes along *if it ever does……

Let’s talk about some of the characters on this show. We have a lot of characters on this show, mainly so that every episode we can get a new villain but let’s start with the main two Adrien and Marinette. Marinette is Ladybug and she is so strong and she is confident and smart and strong mind when she is Ladybug but when she is Marinette she is really clumsy and spends most of her time obsessing over Adrien. I love her because she is really relatable. She’s like a female Peter Parker and I really like that about her. She also wants to be a fashion designer and like stands up for herself against the bitch that is Chloe and I’m like you go girl! So she is the reason that Cat Noir and Ladybug don’t know who they are. In episode seven, they are about to transform back into their real identities and Cat is like I won’t tell anyone but then she’s like none can know who we really are not even us. And I’m like why do you have to be like that and then I realize that I think she is scared of what people are going to say when they find out that she is Ladybug.

There is a big difference between how she acts when she is Ladybug and when is she Marinette like I said before. One of the things about Marinette is like that she really lacks in self-confidence. The began * and i mean origins people she wonders if she can even be Ladybug and even gives up at one point because she messed up once and thinks that she can’t do it right. So I’m thinking and I’m going off a post I saw on Pinterest, that she isn’t scared of people knowing her identity, she scared of people knowing who she is and then them be disappointed. I’m like really scared for that reveal scene which is said to be coming soon. I’m like afraid it’s going to go badly.  Let’s talk about Adrien who is too good for this world. He has the backstory of a villain or a really angsty superhero but instead of being either of those things, he is this sweet boy who just goes around saving the world and saying puns. I love him.

We have Alya who is Marinette’s best friend and then we have Nino who is Adrien’s best friend and they are sassy best friends well Alya is for Marinette. Alya loves superheroes and is a blogger and who basically do anything to get a lead on the story. Like in the origins episode the news is on and you see the villain and Alya is just following behind on her bike and I’m like girl you’re crazy. I enjoy these characters they mean well and want to be there for their friends. They are good characters and I like them better then our other background characters. We have Chloe who is a bitch and I hate her and we have Sabrina who is the girl Chloe pushes around. I don’t like her but it seems like she is getting the bee miraculous next season and I think Alya is becoming the fox miraculous. I’m even with Alya getting the fox miraculous but not Chloe. I hate Chloe, I find her really  annoying. I don’t know how she is going to get the miraculous though because don’t you have to be a good person? What if she think saves someone be mistake and Master Fu is like I’m going to pick her and that’s how she gets it because that would be really funny. I would enjoy that a lot.

Let’s talk about the character I hope to never see again which was Lila. We met her in the season final and she is telling everyone lies and she tells people that she has met Ladybug and she flirts with Adrien and Marinette hates her. She finds this book about miraculous *she didn’t find it she stole from Adrien and she is like I’ll pretend I’m the fox miraculous to get with Adrien. Ladybug is like you lying bitch that’s not true *I’m paraphrasing again and she gets embarrassed into front of Adrien so then she gets akumized and is like I kidnapped Adrien and Ladybug believes it but Cat Noir is like it’s not true but Ladybug doesn’t believe him and I’m like this could be a good time to tell her man but he doesn’t!  I’ve also seen fanart that shows Lila and Marinette becoming friends and I’m no.

I don’t want her around.



This show is amazing and it’s so much fun to watch. Like I’ve watch it so many times already. I love it. You guys should totally watch it. If you have then what did you think of it? Did you like it as much as I did? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way. I don’t know what I’ll have up next I’m thinking my Spiderman: Homecoming review because I’m going to go see and I’m so excited! You should follow my book club here and other social media links.
