Top 10 Favorite Shows! | 2017 Fall Edition

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a top 10 of all my favorite shows of summer of 2017! I did one for winter in February which you can read here and I did one for spring in May which you can read here and one for summer which you can read here. I have watched so many shows this summer that I had to remove things from this list so that I could other things to this list. Picking the order of this list was hard because I liked a lot of these shows and it didn’t know where some of them should go Whatever. Let’s begin!

But first some honorable mentions!

Games of Thrones

p8553063_b_v8_am

I watched the first season of Game of Thrones. Are you proud universe? This is literally the show that almost the whole world watches and I just now finished the first season. I’ve read the first four books and I loved the first book, I liked the second book, I love the third book, and I hate book four. I debated about if this should be on my list or if it belong in the honorable mentions but I’m putting in the honorable mentions because I loved everything on the list more than I loved this show. I think I would have liked this show better if I watched it when I was reading books 1-3 and not post book four because post book four me is done with this series. I mean it’s a good show but I’m just done with it and all the hype.

Orphan Black

I finished it and it was beautiful and yes I was very scared about how it would end but every thing was fine and I cried for like an hour. I started crying and then I would stop and then I would start crying again. I’d really going to miss this show! If you haven’t watch Orphan Black what are you doing with your life? GO WATCH IT! All seasons are on Amazon so you know go get your life together and watch it. I wanted to put it on the list but it was on the list last time and I watched so many shows this season that I decided that it would just be better to put it here.

The Defenders

I did enjoy this show even though the rest of the world didn’t really seem to. Is it the best Marvel show? No that title is held by Jessica Jones but it doesn’t suck. I loved how all the aesthetics of each show blended together and I loved how the characters worked together. I’m glad I missed the Iron Fist as is the rest of the world and he was okay in this show I just loved everyone more. I’m excited for Jessica Jones season two I’m excited for Luke Cage season two and I’m really excited for Daredevil season three because you know that shit is going to be awesome! Again I enjoyed this I was going to do a full review but I didn’t have a lot to say about it other then I enjoyed it. If you like the Marvel Netflix then watch The Defenders. It won’t be your favorite but you will enjoy it.

The Five

This show! Oh my god was no what I expected it went for crime drama to crazy serial killer shit happening all in three episodes. I would put this on my list but I’ve only seen three episodes because my mom started watching it without. Hopefully I’ll pick it up again soon because I really enjoyed. If you didn’t know this is a show where a group of teens went out one day with one of the boy’s brother and then the boy’s brother goes missing. Years later at a crime scene his brother’s blood comes up in a DNA test. There is all this other cool stuff going on and it’s just crazy I was so looking forward to seeing how all of it played out. Again hopefully I’ll start watching it again.

Hit The Floor

This was going to be on the list but I started watching this other show that you’ll read about soon and I had to switch them out. This is show was one I kept reading about on tumblr and my sister and I started watching it together and then suddenly my mom and little sister joined in on it and we all watched all three seasons together. I love this show it was so crazy and dramatic and fun. I love Zero, I love  Jude, I love Kyle, they are all such great characters. It’s just so much fun to watch. I’m interested to see how the next season will work because like no one is coming back for it.


#10 The Catch

the_catch_poster_key_art_exclusive

This was the show I switched out with Hit the Floor and it’s worthy because this show is soo good and I’m so sad it got canceled. This show is just so amazing! It has Peter Krause from Parenthood and I love him and I love their relationship. The whole show just reminds me of one of my favorite shows of all time White Collar and it kind of goes along the same lines. It follows Alice who is engaged and works as a private investigator and she is looking for a criminal who is called Mr. X. She comes home one day to find all of her stuff and money gone and turns out her fiancé is the guy is look for. Guys this show is so amazing and I’m so sad it got canceled. I miss it! This show is on Hulu so you can start to stream all two season which I highly recommend.


#9 Broadchurch

Promo_poster.jpg

I watched all three seasons with my family and it just so good! If you like crime dramas then I’ll highly recommend this one. This show just ended and it wasn’t canceled I just want to say that. The mysteries on this show are so amazing and I just have so much fun watching it. The woman who is becoming the new doctor is on this show and there are like a million other people from Doctor Who who have roles on this show. This show does deal with some heavy and dark topics so if you are an young person like of five years old then I would not recommend you watch this show. I really enjoyed this show and I know that the first two seasons are on Netflix and I think season three will be on there soon so go watch it.


#8 Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

2016_Dirk-Gently.jpg

I would just like to start with I have not finished the first season of this show and please do not leave spoilers about season two on this blog or my social media. I started watching this show because when I was watching Broadchruch on the BBC America app and I kept getting ads for this show which looked pretty interesting. My little sister and I started watching it and I’m almost done with the first season and I’m hoping to get to the second season soon. This show is so much fun and weird an quirky and I love it!


#7 Wynonna Earp

Wynonna-Earp-1.jpg

Damn dude this show was amazing! I’d been hearing about this show for awhile now and the first two seasons were on Netflix so my sisters and I were like let’s give it a shot. It’s so good and so funny. Like Supernatural but a lot better. It’s so silly but also serious at the same time. It’s just so amazing! I love it! I haven’t seen all of season three yet but I’m ready to finish it because I’ve heard so many good things about it. If you like supernatural shows then you’ll enjoy this. The lead is amazing and so funny but like it’s funnier then Supernatural and better then Supernatural. Watch it you’ll have a good time.


#6 Star VS The Forces of Evil

DDmkfZxXYAASoOs.jpg

I started watching this show because I had seen it on tumblr and some commercials but I didn’t know what to think. I finished watching Gravity Falls and Miraculous wasn’t out yet so I was just like did something like that, something with plot and but still funny and enjoyable and that’s what this show is. I love it so much! It’s so cute and has a lot of heart and I really love Star and Marco. Marco is the best! I love him! They are both so cute and funny! Guys watch this show! because You’ll love it!


#5 The Bold Type

bold_type_xlg.jpg

The show I never expected to love! I have a review about it you can here if you want. I talked about how from the commercials I thought it was going to be another cheesy freeform chow but it really isn’t! This show is just so amazing and wonderful! We have been confirmed for both a second and third season so we have thought to look forward to which I’m excited for because I miss this show! I re watched the finale and I was just reminded of how much I love this show because it’s soo good! This is one of the best things on FreeForm and just watch because you’ll love it.


#4 Big Little Lies

MV5BMjEzNzc3NzA0OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzM5NDY0MTI@._V1_.jpg

If you don’t remember I read this book back in the like September I think but either way I loved the book. It was so much fun to read and it left me like oh shit that happened and it was so amazing. I read the book and I decided that I would want to watch the show which had just come out. My mom who have read a lot of books by the author of Big Little Lies so we started watching it together and it was a lot of fun. They didn’t change a lot of things and a lot of the things that they changed where like things weren’t like important to the story things. I can see how they want to be a second season because the show didn’t finish it where the book left off so if they did do a second season it could work.


#3 The Mindy Project

The-Mindy-Project-season-6-tv-poster-Hulu-series.jpg

The final season had aired and finished and I’m so sad because I have no clue what I’m going to without. I was so happy with the finish for this show because season five was okay I didn’t like Ben. I only ever wanted her to get back together with Danny. This season was amazing and funny and so beautiful. I’m so sad that it’s over. I miss it already. Mindy is just so funny and great! Why did you have to go so soon? Because I miss you! *okay i’ll stop now


#2 The Good Place

52194_1_large.jpg

I was worried for this season because I had no clue what was going to happen but I have never laughed harder then I have watching this show. It’s so much fun and enjoyable to watch I just love it so much! if you haven’t watched the Good Place yet then what are you doing? The first season should be on netflix and the second season has some episodes on hulu so go watch it because it is so amazing. It’s just so much fun to watch! I’m excited to see where the rest of this season is going because the start right now has just been amazing and so funny and weird!


#1 Gravity Falls

Six_strange_tales.jpg

I started watching this show because I had been hearing stuff about it for months and after watching and loving Miraculous Ladybug I figured that maybe I should it a try because it has a great cast and a lot cool people guest star. All two seasons are on Hulu by the way and it also as a person from Parenthood, Jason Ritter. I loved this show and it’s was just my favorite this season. I’ve watched it so many times. It’s so amazing and I would recommend it if you love mystery and fantasy. Dipper and Mabel just have a great  friendship and I’m going to love this show forever. I remembering watching the finale and just crying my eyes out and then I started rewatching the show with my little sister and the same thing happened over again. It’s such a good show.

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir Review | Season 2 EP 1: The Collector

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

maxresdefault

I know what you are probably thinking right now. You are probably thinking one: Grace it’s not Wednesdays and I thought we were done with double posts a week what the hell? Well I’ve been having some trouble with this blog like I have so many post ideas but when I only update once they won’t be out for a long time and I don’t want that to be like that all the time. Like if I kept doing that then this would out in February and we would be done talking about season two, we would be losing our shit about season three and what comes next. So yeah I’m not doing this every week, I’m only doing it if I want something out soon whether then later and it will mostly only be reviews. You probably have another question which is why are you talking about Miraculous I thought we were done with it? Well I took like a month break from Miraculous which I need because I was at the point where I had watched Miraculous so many times and studied it so many times that it was giving me a headache. After I did my Let’s Talk About It for this show, I was like I will not talk about this show or watch it or learn anything about until I could watch it again without like studying it and giving myself a headache. I also stopped because I knew if I kept doing that I would overhype for myself which I don’t want.

But like I said it’s a been a month and episodes have aired and I’m better now and I’m ready to reenter the world of Miraculous. If you don’t know what Miraculous Ladybug is I have two review for it because I wrote the first part and then like a day later I realized I wasn’t done talking about it so I made part two. If you want to know stuff about it then read the first one. It’s streaming on Netflix I think everywhere *don’t quote me on that.. no.. stop it and if you live in France then some of the new episodes have already aired so watch season one and then watch season two and come back. I honestly forgot that it was airing the night this episode came out because I left to get my life together. I was at a restaurant with my sister who also watches the show and I went on tumblr for two seconds and there is Miraculous Ladybug trending. I click on it to discover that the first two episode had aired in France and I lost my cool and so did my sister. I was going to wait for all the episodes to come onto Netflix next month so I could stream them all together like I did with the first season because I knew that if I watched one episode I would want more. But I couldn’t help myself I miss this show and I couldn’t watch season one anymore knowing that more information had come to light and I knew nothing. I watched this episode and next thing I know I spent a lot of the day looking for information now season two because I need it now!

I don’t know if I’ll do this for every episode but I had a lot to say about this one so I thought I would do a review for it. Maybe all do more leading up to it coming onto Netflix for the others who haven’t watched it yet. I don’t know! I enjoyed this episode it was a good start into season two and it gives us a sign that we are getting more this season and I’m loving it! It also doesn’t spend time like telling us what happen last time which is what most shows do when they come back but this didn’t. I didn’t think it was possible but I somehow fell more in love with Adrien / Chat Noir. Every time I saw Adrien or Chat my heart just swooned! Marinette is still amazing and I still love her very much. The Collector was an interesting villain for this episode let me tell you. It was all crazy and amazing. It wasn’t as bad as I thought and what I mean by that is I thought it was going to be Volphia which an episode I had a hard time finishing because I just want everyone to be happy and stupid bitch Lila was going to mess it. There were some moments that came close to that but I survived for now. I would give this episode an +A because I really enjoyed it. I don’t know what else I can say without not spoiling people so I think that’s it for my nonspoilery section. If you have watched this episode please leave and then come back when you have watched. BYE!

WARNING SPOILERS FOR HERE ON OUT

YOU’VE BEEN WARNED

OKAY! I would just let to start with Gabriel Argeste. If you are new here then let me tell you that I have been talking about the Argestes ever since I started this show because we don’t know much about them. I thought that Gabriel was HawkMoth when I first watched season one and as season two got closer I was beginning to change my mind but then what do you know he turns out to be HawkMoth! It was like Thomas was watching me and being like ‘HaHa you thought it wasn’t true so now I’m making it happen’. We start off with Adrien getting in trouble with stealing the Miraculous Book because like Marinette, Nathalie has a bunch of photos of Adrien and is showing them to Gabriel. Why do people have so many pictures of this kid? Where do they get them from? So Gabriel has like a fit over this and tells Adrien that he can’t go to school anymore and then when everyone leaves the room, he just starts destroying it for some reason. I still kind of confuse on why he did it because what the hell man! You just destroyed your house for no reason. He tried to pass his anger off as the book was inspiration for his designs to Adrien and I knew right then it was complete bullshit. We got a better excuse later when he tells Adrien that it was the last thing Mrs. Argeste got him before she disappeared. I’m still wondering if it was even an excuse like maybe that is why he holding onto the book or if he believe it help in the future. I’m still not sure yet.

Marinette has met Master Fu and we met the turtle kwami and like while the whole meeting is going on we just see him and Tikki just goofing around I loved that. It wasn’t something big and important but it was a nice thing to see. We learn that Master Fu is a Guardian of the Miraculouses which was interesting because I thought that he was the Turtle Miraculous holder. Maybe he is both? I don’t know. He tells her that he made a mistake which we already knew that last him the butterfly miraculous and the peacock miraculous and the Miraculous Spell book which was the book that Adrien found in his dad’s safe. Master Fu tells him that whoever had this book last probably is HawkMoth and I knew she was going to lie to save Adrien because that’s what she does. She protects Adrien even though he only sees her as a friend but Adrien protects her when she is Marinette and he is Chat Noir or at least I think that’s whats happening. Marinette just starts freaking out over the fact that she got the book from him and believes that he could be HawkMoth. I couldn’t help but face palm because the girl can’t even realize that she fights next to the boy everyday! I mean yes it was expected for her to have that reaction but for some reason I got upset about it. She goes to the school to find out that Adrien has been pulled out of school for stealing his dad’s book which then leads Marinette to believe that Gabriel is the owner of the book and not Adrien.

We go to HawkMoth which before we got started on that I have to comment on somethings. First off and I’ve talked about this before which the name HawkMoth. We learn that he has the Butterfly Miraculous and if it’s called the butterfly miraculous then why the hell is his name HawkMoth? Like was Butterfly hero not cool enough for you? With Ladybug and Chat Noir there isn’t a lot of creative for them and I guess there is for this other miraculous maybe? Maybe the creators of something were just like oh those two are the most powerful so they don’t get as much creativity with the name. Okay back to what I saying we got to HawkMoth who is getting ready to Akamatize Gabriel and he sends off the akama but it doesn’t leave though and then HawkMoth detransforms into Gabriel *who saw that coming? everyone!. Gabriel decides that he needs to akamatize himself so that he throw him off his trail and my respond to that was who are trying to throw off! Are you using your weird thing that shows you people’s emotions to see that Ladybug thinks you are HawkMoth? Like how does he know that people are beginning to  think that they know he is doing all this shit? Does he think Adrien thinks that he is HawkMoth because Chat Noir didn’t even find out until a couple minutes later when Ladybug told him she thought Gabriel was HawkMoth. Either way Gabriel comes The Collector and continues to destroy everything in his house.

Gabriel is like so EXTRA about everything and we already knew he was extra because he locked his son away from the world for years because he was like I have to care about your safety and he won’t let Adrien do anything! And we literally see him destroy his whole house over a book and if he didn’t want anyone to know that he is HawkMoth then maybe you should calm down! He goes to Adrien’s room to like hurt him but he sneaks out to met Ladybug and I was so glad about that. Like no one hurts Adrien no one! Adrien seems really upset when Ladybug tells him that she believes that his dad is HawkMoth and I just wanted to hug him and tell him everything is okay. He believes that there is good in everyone while Marinette sometimes will be like no you’re evil and I hate you which is why their relationship works. Because they strengths and weaknesses seem to even each other out and it makes the a good team. Also I forget that HawkMoth has to say ‘Dark Wings rise’ and ‘Dark Wings Fall’ and when he say it  I just died laughing because it still makes no sense to me what so ever. The whole fight at the house was so interesting and it was intense because there were so many moments where I was like shit what if something happens to my kids. Adrien has gone back to believing that his dad is innocent but I know this now and he needs to get away from his father. I love that Ladybug kept checking in on Chat Noir because she could just tell that something was wrong and my heart was just full.

There wasn’t any Lila which I wasn’t expecting. I thought because we weren’t make where we ended then she would be there and she wasn’t which I was so thankful. In this episode we also learned Kwamis can’ be photographed and that Chat Noir’s tail comes off which where two things that I thought were interesting. Gabriel said that he got the over seas so maybe that’s where he also got his miraculous. Also Nathalie knows that he is HawkMoth so I’m wondering how much she is getting paid to kept these secrets. I’m really interested to see what happens next with this whole story and does Gabriel know who Chat Noir and Ladybug are? I need to know more! I’m so excited to see where else this season is going because I can tell you I think this is going to be a good one. I think that our heroes will have to deal with finding identities for each others and HawkMoth and I’m worried that Adrien might discover who his dad is and will side with him and he would fight Ladybug and that’s when the other Miraculous come into play. That would also be cool and break my heart at the same time.

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 no seen the rest of season two and please don’t leave spoilers in the comments or on my social media thank you very much. Have you guys seen season two yet? If you have what did you think? I have a writing post coming up soon and I have my Life is Strange GamePlay next week so look out for that.

The Handmaid’s Tale TV Show Review| Epic Adaptations

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about the tv show, The Handmaid’s Tale, based off the book by Margaret Atwood which is my October book of the month!

WARNING SPOILERS

MV5BMjAzNTEwOTA3NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODYyOTUxMjI@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,666,1000_AL_

If you don’t know I have a book club called Epic Adaptations where every month I pick a book that has been adapted into a book or movie and then I’ll review both and then I compare it. For October I picked The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood which was adapted into a show by Hulu. You may have heard of it because it would so many emmys and I’m glad it did because it was amazing, I have a whole review for the book so check that out right here.

This show was amazing. The acting was amazing, the filming was amazing, the aesthetic of the whole shows was wonderful, and the feel of the book is in the show which I loved! They did such a great job just capturing everything and putting it together. I have to give out a warning if you want to watch this show there are some graphic scenes so I won’t let like a youngen watch this show because some scenes are hard to watch. If you old enough though and have Hulu I would 100% recommend this show and the book too because it was so amazing! I love watching this show that sounds wrong because this show deals with a lot of hard stuffs but it’s just so amazing and great.

The girl who played Offred is great and she won an Emmy so that should show. All the other actors are great because they make you either love or hate their characters which is great when you hate them because you known you are suppose to hate them. The show is amazing and it’s very close to the book but then in some ways they changed a lot to add on to the story because they were things that either weren’t answered in the book or they were in the book but they were put in a different order. Like her real name being June, that’s not a thing that was talked about in the book. You never learn her real name but one scene the name June is mentioned and fans of the book labeled her as June and they wrote it into the show. Scenes are out go of order like the Doctor’s appointment was earlier in the book but that was in like episode four.

I’m not complaining about that though because I enjoyed that they did it that way. It’s different from other book to movie adaptations because they change things to the story for some reason and it doesn’t add anything to the story but when they change the story in this it stills adds onto the story. Another thing that I think was good was the fact they give more information on some of the characters like her husband, Moira, and Ofglen. Alexis was fucking fantastic as Ofglen that scene with her watching the girl getting hanged was so sad. All the actors and actress were so good!!! Just watch this show it’s great! And we are getting a season two which I’m excited about because the book just ends and the season one ends the same way so we are getting more and hopefully it will be good.

Accuracy: 75%

Like I said it’s basically the same story but they did change a couple of things. It’s not something I would complain about though because it’s still a fantastic show. The show and the book are both wonderful stories that play out so well. I can not stresses this enough guys just please watch this show. It’s so great!

Rating: +A for being amazing and scary just like the book

I enjoyed this show and I would recommend that everyone who likes the book to go and watch it because you will enjoy it. 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.

YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE BOLD TYPE!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about one of my new favorite shows The Bold Type!

the bold type.jpg

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

I feel like I should start with the fact that I did not want to watch this show. When I was at ALA and my sister and I were taking a break at the hotel watching Harry Potter weekend *i cried again watching deathly hallows don’t judge me which is always on the channel Freeform and they kept playing commercials for the Bold Type. My sister and I were just like oh it could be a good show but it’s on Freeform so it won’t be good because Freeform shows are really dramatic and cheesy. Like I’ve watched to shows ever on Freeform which was Jane by Design *that was when it was abc family and Shadowhunters. I liked Jane by Design but it got canceled and Shadowhunters is just so bad like I can’t watch it.

But then suddenly it’s trending on Tumblr and then I’m in Cincinnati and my sister just texts and says she’s watching the Bold Type and she’s loving it. Then Christine uploads her Top 10 shows of 2017 and the Bold Type is on it. I did stay up one night with my sister and even though I was doing more work than watching it looked so cute. I decided to watch it and I loved it. OMG guys it’s such a good show. I mean it’s only been done for a couple of days now and I miss it so much! I loved this show so much! I can’t believe it’s on Freeform because it’s soooooo good! I love all the girls so much and I love Alex and I love Jacqueline! It’s just so great!

If you didn’t know this show follows best friends Jane, Sutton, and Kat. They all work at a magazine called Scarlet and the show follows them working there. Jane is a newly promoted writer, Sutton is an assistant but wants something more, and Kat who is head of Social Media. The show deals with a lot of real issues and has a lot storylines that follow real things and it’s so good! All the episodes are on Hulu so if you want to watch them then go do it right now! I have to go and do my non spoilery section because I really want to get deeper into the show and why it’s so good and everything that has happened in it. if you haven’t watched the Bold Type then go watch it then come right back and read the rest of this review and just watch it because the show is so good!

WARNING SPOILERS

IF YOU DON’T WANT TO GET SPOILED LEAVE

I’M NOT KIDDING

Okay so let’s just start with that finale because wow that was such an amazing episode and I enjoyed so much and I wanted to cry. So I’m very happy with how that finale went because we don’t know the show is being picked up for a second season and instead of ending on a cliffhanger like most shows *COUGH CLASS AND STILL STAR CROSSED COUGH. It ends solving a lot of different things that have been left opened but there are still something hanging around so that we can still get a season two which I loved that they did that. I want a season two because I love this show and I love the characters.

The season finale was so good and normally shows can’t do storylines with sexual abuse but this show did. The episode has Jane trying to do a piece on a girl who holds these weights in the park and when other girls have gone through the same thing they go and hold the weights too. She wants to do this as her finale piece at Scarlet because she’s going to work somewhere else. I didn’t like that Jane was already leaving Scarlet when she just got this writing job. Like come on girl! It was just such a good final episode of the season. I kind of figure that Jacqueline had been raped like half way and then the scene where she takes the weights and she’s standing looking so strong. I loved this so much. IT was so good!!

Also were we hinting at Sutton and Richard getting back together? I’m not complaining, I just wanted her and Alex to get together because they were so cute. Alex is such a great guy and I love him. I love how he understood why Sutton didn’t what to date because she hadn’t moved on from Richard. In most movies and shows, the guys just act like complete jerks and are rude and jerks but he was so nice about the whole thing even though he clearly likes her. That scene though where she had to go to a meeting after she and Alex had been found kissing and Richard was there and you could see that he was upset over the fact that she was with someone else and I thought it was really sad.

Kat and Adena I love them so much! They are so cute and people and I love them. I love the airport scene where she’s goes to the airport because Adena isn’t allowed into the country and they go on their first date and it was so beautiful and I loved it so much. And that scene where they are both shirtless and we got some side boob going on there. Gosh I made that so weird, what I mean is that you don’t normally see on a cable show with a lesbian couple. They are so cute and I love them. I also love Jane because I can relate to Jane like in some ways. Like quick to judge and loves writing. I enjoyed her character so much. I loved all these characters so much. They’re my favorites and I miss them so much!

I honestly really just want a season because I just want to see more them. I love this show and I love the storyline. It’s the perfect mix of real life issues, humor, and drama and it’s brilliant. I love it so much! I recommend this show to everyone because it is so amazing! Have you guys watched this show? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it?

Confess TV Show Review | Epic Adaptations

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about the tv show, Confess, based off the book by Colleen Hoover which is my September book of the month!

confess tv shows

I did a review for the book which you can read here because it should be out by now. Let’s just hope that future Grace remembers to add the link. If you don’t know I have a book club called Epic Adaptations where every month I pick a book that has been turned into a TV or movie. Last month I reviewed Still Star-Crossed which I loved so much, you can read both reviews here and here. I was going to do the Handmaid’s Tale but I haven’t finished the show and I thought that it would work better in the month of October because the society in that book scares me so much!

This show follows Auburn, who works at an old folks home, and Owen, who is an artist and runs this art studio, and they have this whole romance thing going on and other dramatic stuff happens. If you read my review for the book then you should know that I liked the book but I didn’t think it was the best thing ever and that’s how I feel about this show. I mean it has some great moments and some emotional moments but I wasn’t that affected by everything that happened. It’s a good show don’t get me wrong but it wasn’t the best thing ever. The episodes were only like thirty minutes long which surprised me because I thought it was going to be an hour long thing but it wasn’t. There are only seven episodes as while which makes me wonder if it should have just been a movie instead of tv. I think that’s all I have for my non spoiler section so if you haven’t watched this show and you want to watch it then leave and then come back after you’ve watched it.

OKAY SPOILERS FROM HERE ALL OUT

YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO

Okay so let’s just talk about Owen’s cat for a second because it looks like a stuff animal and I had to pause and laugh because what the hell? And they keep talking about him like he’s really a thing and I thought it was so funny! The show begins like the book begins and I was so emotional for that first scene I did not think I was going to do. In the book I wasn’t that emotional watching her and her old boyfriend whose name I don’t remember saying goodbye because he was really sick and she had to leave but I was crying for some reason. The rest of the episode after that didn’t you do it for me like it was cute like a romantic comedy but it wasn’t that enjoyable.

The acting for this show isn’t great. It’s fine. With every other word that they said I was like no no no. It’s very cheesy. We met AJ really early into the show and like we didn’t even know what was going on in her life until like half way through the book. In the first episode we learn that she is getting a lawyer because she wants full custody of her son and we see that Auburn doesn’t always say what she wants to say. Like with every texts she is like typing something and then deletes it and types something else. I think I like book Auburn more than tv shows Auburn because just she was better and funnier and more confident then this chick. Also the look they gave to Owen on this show to make him look like the guy from Fifty Shades whose name I don’t remember. He was on Once Upon A Time for like that first season. You know who I’m talking about.

I liked the guy who plays Owen, I mean he’s not the best actor like I said but I like him. Lydia was the chick from Gilmore Girls whose April’s mom and I didn’t realize that until I watched Natasha’s video. I couldn’t figure out where she was from and it was driving me crazy and then I watched her video and I felt like an idiot for not recognizing her. That’s all I have to say. I’m sorry I don’t have more but I’m not as opinionated on this as much as I have been for the other shows but I hated 13 Reasons Why and I was upset that Still Star Crossed was canceled.

Accuracy: 50%

There are things that are correct about this show like the characters, their relationships and then there are these details that are changed for no real reason like her relationship with her roommate, the place of the city, where she works. They are other things like the story is changed a little to add onto the plot lined and changed to go in a different order. I did enjoy this show even though at some moments I wasn’t all that entertained, some moments were really great and emotional. I’m going to give this show for B like the book for being good but not keeping really interested in the story all the way.

Rating: B for being great but not keeping me on my toes the whole time

I enjoyed this show and I would recommend that everyone who likes the book to go and watch it because you will enjoy it. 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.

Still Star-Crossed TV show review | Epic Adaptations

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about the tv show, Still Star-Crossed, based off the book by Melinda Taub which is my August book of the month!

still-star-crossed

So I should have my review for the book for this by now which you can read here. If you don’t know I have a book club called Epic Adaptations where every month I pick a book that has been turned into a TV or movie. Last month was 13 Reasons Why and this month, I had a poll on Twitter to decide what book I should do this month. It was between the Handmaid’s Tale and Still Star-Crossed and Still Star-Crossed won! If you couldn’t tell by the fact that I’m reviewing Still Star-Crossed. It was also on my Top 10 Shows of Summer which you can read here.

This show was soo good! Yes I did watch this before I read the book but that’s because I had no clue it was a book until I was on like episode five and we only had two episodes left in the seasons. I did read and finish the book before the final episode so there’s that. I had such a good time watching this show I loved it so much! I loved all the actors and how well they played their characters. I loved that we get to see more of the characters in depth because the story in the book mainly focus on Rosaline and Benvolio. This was a pretty good adaptation of the book but they changed the ending so that they could have a season two but they ended not getting a season which I’M VERY ANGERY ABOUT! All the episodes should be on Hulu for you to watch so go and watch this show! That’s all for my nonspoilerly part of this review. I know it’s short but I have to talk about this show!

WARNING SPOILERS A HEAD

LEAVE IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED IT

OKAY GUESS WHOSE MAD ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEY CHANGED THE ENDING OF THE SHOW SO THAT THEY COULD HAVE A SEASON TWO BUT ABC CANCELED THE SHOW?? ME! You can’t just do that, well they can actually. But I can be angry about it. It’s so dumb that 13 Reasons Why is getting a second season a long with Riverdale and this show and Class aren’t. It makes me mad. A lot of shows I’ve watched this year have gotten canceled or I’ve just lost interest in. It makes me sad that’s happened.

I loved this show! It was so good and I’m so sad that there isn’t going to be a second season. But I’m done talking about that……for right now at least. The show is very fun and it’s very good and I enjoyed it very much. I posted my reactions to the season finale on Tumblr which if you followed me on, everyone seemed to enjoy. The show starts off pretty accurate but as it goes on they clearly wanted to do a second season so they started changing things and it was still good but I would have liked the book following better because it was happy and we aren’t getting a second season. I loved all the actors in this show and we got some great ones like Bash from reign, Gillies from Buffy, Earl Grey from Scream Queens, Elody from Before I Fall, lots of people.

The show is also very pretty as the pilot was filmed in Rome and the outfits are so pretty. I guess I should talk about this show now. This show follows after the deaths of Romeo and Juliet and the war between the family gets worse. To make sure that war stops before everyone kills each others, Ecalus the new prince decides that we needs to marry a Capulate and Montague to try and bond the families together. IF shit wasn’t bad before then it’s very bad now as people are killing each other, protesting, basically do anything to stop this from happening. We focus on Rosaline and Benvolio, the people who are getting married, Escalus and his sister Isabelle, the head of the two families, and just the families in general.

Watching this show unfold and see everything that was happening and who was behind  all the attacks was so great. Spoilers: Turns out Paris wanted to be the new prince and he tried to kill everyone and it went badly and I wished Livia had never saved him. I’m so mad that it happened. I can’t believed he just used her like that! NOW WE’LL NEVER SEE PARIS GET WHATT HE DESERVES AND OR HAVE LIVIA FIND TRUE LOVE!!! IT MAKES ME SO MAD! Another thing that makes me mad the fact that Isabelle and that Blonde chick whose name I don’t remember according to twitter they kissed but then it was taken out of the finale!!!! AHHHH! Now I’ll see their relationship evolve into some good loving! Okay I need to chill but I can’t BECAUSE I’M SO FUCKING MAD! I do like this show okay. I’m not mad at the show I’m mad at ABC for canceling it. I should stop.

Accuracy: 85%

The show started out pretty accurate but as it went on they changed the show so that they could have a second season. The characters were pretty much the same. The only character I would said changed a lot was Isabelle but I would say that she was changed for the better. I liked that she wasn’t married in this storyline. I wished the ending hadn’t been changed so that I could have gotten a happy ending instead of it ending like it did! But another then I that I liked this show and I’m giving it an -A.

Rating: -A for being amazing but it just left me hanging so

I enjoyed this show and I’m so sad that they changed the ending so that they could have a second season and they didn’t get renewed. At least I have the book ending which was happy. So for next month I will probably do Confess if I can get the link to work or if I can find somewhere to bootleg it *I’m not a good role model 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.

Let’s talk about the Wayward Sisters!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about my concerns for the Supernatural spin off, the Wayward Sisters! *this is going to give me much hate but let’s just do it

supernatural-jody-claire-alex

Supernatural is a show that is has been on since 2005, has twelve seasons, is very popular, and is one of my favorite moments so the fact that it is getting a spin off should not come as a surprise. A spin off was going to happen and it was going to be called Bloodlines. They filmed a backdoor pilot episode but it didn’t work out in the end. Fans have been asking for a show about these girls Alex, Clarie, and Jody since they were all showed living together and a little before that. I wanted one and now we are getting one which is giving mixed emotions.

I am excited for this because I love these characters and I show about them could be great but here’s the two problems I have with it which is the writers, the network, and the Supernatural fandom. I’m going to tell you a story about a wonderful and fantastic show called Class I have a review for it here. Class is a story with a lot of diversity, great characters, a fantastic storyline, and was created by the great Patrick Ness. It was amazing and it was a spin off to Doctor Who a very popular show. Unfortunately Class did get treated well. By the Network and by the Doctor Who fandom as the network wouldn’t advertisement and the Doctor Who fandom wouldn’t watch it because it wasn’t Doctor Who. I’m telling you all this because I’m scared that the same thing will happen to this show as one CW isn’t the best network.

I’m scared that it won’t treat it fairly because it won’t be like Riverdale or Supernatural or it will expect higher views. And I say probably expect higher views is because I scared that the Supernatural fandom will treat it like because I’m sorry the Supernatural fandom is toxic and sexist to basically a lot of the female characters. Being a toxic fandom is common in very big popular fandoms but Supernatural us a very mean group of fans. They are sexist to any female characters and so are the writers and they are mainly mean to them because they don’t want them to have any chances of screwing Destiel. Guys you need to chill!!!! Give these characters a chance and the writers of Supernatural aren’t better and I don’t really want them writing this show. They’ll mess up it and we won’t get a good show.

That’s all I have to say but moral of the story is: let’s treat this show right, give it a chance, and just chill for millisecond. Are you guys excited for this show? Are you guys going to watch the show? And are you going to watch all the episodes and not just the ones with the Supernatural boys? Let me know! I’ll probably watch them if I have time. But right now I’m mad about Supernatural right now. 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!

13ReasonsWhy

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.

WARNING SPOILERS

SERISOUSLY JUST LEAVE

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.

img_3977

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?
