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?

YOU HAVE TO WATCH MIRACULOUS: TALES OF LADYBUG AND CAT NOIR! | Part Two

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about my new obsession Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir for the second time because I still have somethings I need to talk about and yeah I decided to make a part two!

ladybug

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

So this is my second review for Miraculous. My first review which will come out before this one and you can read here is 2284 words and I finished it and I was happy with it but then I started rewatching the show again and now I have more things to say so we are doing another review. I don’t know when this review will come out but it will happen after the first post. I’m not going to do a non spoiler part of this review like I do with most shows but because I have a first review with a non spoiler section and nothing has changed when it comes to my opinion of the show so there is no point in doing it again.

Let’s began!

WARNING SPOILERS

IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THE SHOW AND YOU WANT TO THEN LEAVE!

IF YOU HAVE THEN GO READ MY FIRST REVIEW!

Okay so like I said before in my last review this show is cheesy as hell, every episode is basically the same except the villain is different but for some reason I love it. It so much fun to watch and I have watch twice more since I wrote my last review because I love it so much. I’m mainly watching right now because if you read my last writing post then you know that I’m doing CampNaNoWrimo and I like writing to a show and this has become a show that I write to. But still it was so much fun. One of the reasons I’m doing this second review so because I kept rewatching the show and all these other thoughts and feelings popped up and I’m like I need to talk about these things.

First thing I want to talk about is the Agreste family. Now I love Adrien, he is so sweet and I love him and I’ve talked about how good his character is because he has the storyline of a villain or an angsty superhero. He was born into a rich family, his mother is either dead or missing, his father is cold to him, he is not allowed to go outside and when he is he had to have a bodyguard with him, and suddenly he is given this ring that gives him power and instead of using that power of evil, he uses it for good. Also instead of being superhero that wears all black and dresses close to an animal and is used in angsty darker atmosphere.

*coughs loudly

tdk6vh111

But he’s not instead, he is kid who dresses as a cat and saves Paris while telling an insane amount of puns and chases after Ladybug. That’s how you create with a tragic backstory and make them have a heart of gold. You don’t need them to be all mean and angsty and then have them be like yeah I’m really a nice guy who is genius *i can not express to you how much i hate this trope and i can never escape it! it’s everywhere. So like I was saying the Agreste family has a lot of things that aren’t known. We know that Adrien’s mother is not around anymore and this clearly has in a effect on everyone in the family and we know it was recent in the storyline because in the Christmas special, Natalie is talking to his dad and she is like okay this is also Adrien’s first Christmas without his mother so you should spend it together.

So that’s all we really know about his mom. I thought she was dead but apparently according to something I saw she is missing but I have no idea. We know a lot about his dad. He is a fashion designer who is really cold to everyone including his son. For some reason he doesn’t let his son outside with his body guard. I just want to know why the hell a fashion designer’s son needs to go outside with A BODYGUARD? Like what the fuck! Why!! Does it have something to do with the fact that is mother is gone? Is it because he is a teen model and like everyone in Paris is in love with him? I don’t know but I think it is weird! He is like stubborn like in the episode Simon Says the villain of that episode, Simon Says is after him and he is like nope I’m fine in my house. And he gets kidnaped. Yeah saw that one coming.

Here is one thing that I believe that I only mentioned once in the first part and that is the fact that I think Adrien’s dad is Hawk Moth, the main villain behind all of it. So I’m not the only one who believes it. I only think this because if you watch the origins episode you’ll find Hawk Moth looking at his miraculous brooch thing and there is a picture of a woman in there who looks like Adrien’s mom. That’s it really. Also the whole family thing were one is a hero and does the right thing while the other does terrible things and is a villain trope.

Let’s talk about Hawk Moth now! Like I said main villain for the whole show, he finds the  moth brooch and he uses it for villain despite the fact that miraculous are supposed to be used for good and his kwami tells him that he can’t do that but he doesn’t listen and anytime someone gets upset or angry, he creates these things called akumas and sends them to those people, making them villains. One things that I’m curious about is how Hawk Moth uses his superpower and somehow stays in his outfit for like the whole episode. Like if it works the same as Cat Noir and Ladybug then you only have five minutes before you turn back because your Kwamis need a break to get their energy back because Kwamis give everyone their powers. So like how does he do it? Also he needs to come up with a different plan to get the Ladybug and Cat Noir’s miraculous because there are 26 episodes and very episode he tries the same plan but on different people and it never seems work. That’s 26 tries and it is same that more happen in storylines that we don’t see. You need a plan man.

Someone needs to get you a book called how to steal from superheroes.

The kwamis are a good part of the story. Every miraculous has a kwami and Marinette has Tikki who is the cutest things ever and Adrien has Plagg who is lazy and funny as hell. I love them both. Tikki is the cutest thing and she helps Marinette when it comes to making decisions and she tells her what she should do and Marinette never really listens.   She loves cookies and she basically lives in Marinette’s purse which is weird because a lot of people have seen her talking to her purse or seen Tikki sticking out of her purse which was so funny because she just goes meow.

Tikki_the_Cutsie.gif

So Adrien has Plagg who is me. Like he is lazy, only wants to eat cheese, is funny, and sour. The only difference is that he is easygoing and I’m like always stressed out. I want to be Tikki though but I’m Plagg. There’s like no fighting it.

plagg.gif

Also one that I’m curious about this can Plagg and Tikki feel each other when their are with Marinette and Adrien or do they know each other. I feel like they might be able to tell if their is another kwami in the room. Do they know who ladybug and cat noir really are and they aren’t telling them? I also want to know more about the Kwamis past because you know that they are old. Also since there have been other heroes do they all have the same name because in the episode the Pharaoh, we discover that they have been a lot of ladybugs and in the episode origins we see them pick out their names so does everyone have a lack of creativity when it comes to superhero names? I guess isn’t really a name that you can come up with that goes with a red suit with black spots and a black suit with cat ears. And they do have miraculous called the earrings of the ladybug and the ring of the cat.

So season two is coming in like two to three months if they keep their word that it’s happening. Because they first said May but that didn’t happen and I need a season two now. The writes have been giving a lot of shit away for season two like who is getting the bee miraculous, it’s Chloe by the way, and I think it’s said that Alya is getting the fox miraculous but I don’t know maybe that is just fans saying that want her to get the miraculous. I think it’s great idea mainly because I think Alya would be a great superhero and I’m loving the fanart I’m seeing. Chloe on the other hand is a terrible. She is a lot of the time, the reason that most of these people get akamaized and she is so annoying. Another thing that has been said is that Adrienette is happening which I’m excited for and I think the reveal is happening. I’m excited though!

I think we are getting more characters to which is good because I think everyone in Marinette and Adrien’s class has been akamized so unless season two involves only outsiders then we got to met new people. Also I don’t want the whole either Adrien or Marinette get akamized story line. Like I’m not saying that if it happens I’ll become one of those fans who will stop watching the show or send rude ass hate mail to the writers, I’m saying that if it happens then my heart WON’T BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT! I think it would be interesting but yeah I won’t be able to handle it. If it does happen then you’ll probably hear someone scream / crying then that’s me.

So I think I have talked about everything on. Like I said this show is amazing and it’s so much fun to watch. Like I’ve watch it so many times already. I love it. It is really cheesy but I love it so much. 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.

YOU HAVE TO WATCH MIRACULOUS: TALES OF LADYBUG AND CAT NOIR!

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

ladybug

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.

WARNING SPOILERS

IF YOU WANT TO WATCH THE SHOW THEN LEAVE

DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU

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.

Ladynoir_kiss.gif

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.

 I WANT HER GONE!

SHE’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THIS SHOW!

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.

Top 10 Favorite Shows! | 2017 Spring Edition

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


#10 The Vampire Diaries

the-vampire-diaries-poster-cast.jpg

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


#9 Reign

RGN_Poster_800px_130826193656

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


#8 Supernatural

supernatural-season-12-cover

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


#7 Luke Cage

luke-cage-cropped.jpg

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


#6 Brooklyn Nine-Nine

BrooklynNineNine_S4.jpg

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


#5 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

63596611808798173224502820_Unbreakable-Kimmy-Schmidt.png

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


#4 Gilmore Girls

14298_7867ecbf7a994ddeb64c40534ef66d22_16x9_788x442o

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


#3 The Mindy Project

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

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


#2 BBC Class

p048smks

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


#1 Parenthood

parenthood_combined3-620x388.png

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


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