TV Report

Ok, I keep saying I'm going to make a TV post and never seem to get round to it and I think the problem is that I'm overthinking things. so I'm just going to make a post now and hope it make sense.

Some spoilers ahead, which I've put behind LJ cuts...

Things I Have Been Watching This Year:

Anne With An E:

I started watching this a few months ago but only got about halfway through. I may try to finish it at some point but the trouble is that Anne is so incredibly irritating I'd have sent her back myself at the earliest opportunity. Canada is very pretty though.

Stranger Things:

I heard such good things about this series for ages before I finally binge watched the first season earlier this year. It was so good and I was very excited to watch season two as soon as it was released. And it didn't disappoint, although it did break my heart.

Once Upon a Time:

I still maintain that this show has finished. What is currently being aired is a different show that happens to have the same name (a bit like season 9 of Scrubs). I tried watching one episode and it was terrible. Absolutely terrible. I might give it another go cos it feels a bit unfair to give up so soon, but it's not at the top of my list.

The Handmaid's Tale:

This is another one that I've started but not finished. Not because I don't like it but because it's pretty hard going. I read the book a few years ago so I know the story, but it's still a difficult watch.

The Good Place:

I am LOVING this show. The first season was only released in the UK at the end of August so I'm a bit late to the party but I'm so glad I gave it a chance when I was flicking through Netflix wondering what to watch. And, fortunately, we're not being made to wait for season two. We get the episodes the day after they're shown in America, which is brilliant but does mean I'm always left wanting more!

Star Trek Discovery:

I was wary going into this because I've been a lifelong Star Trek fan and the last time I got excited about a new series it was the exceedingly disappointing Enterprise. But so far Discovery has really impressed me. It didn't really feel like Star Trek to me, at least not until 'Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad', which had that good old Trek staple of time travel. I love time travel episodes. And when I say that it didn't feel like Star Trek, I'm not saying that I didn't like it. It's different, but that doesn't mean bad.

I love Tilly. And not just because she shares her name with my dog. She's a wonderful ray of sunshine and I hope only good things happen to her. I also love Stamets and Culber and their relationship.
