Three Reviews A Charm

       The first review is for the TV show “Intruders”.

Why was it only eight episodes? I want more! However, the ending was pretty decent; but it did show a possibility for more. If I could rate it I would give it a thumbs up or four stars. I say four because there were times I couldn’t follow what was happening, but over all it was fantastic.

The character I had the most pity for was Jack Whelan played by John Simm who also plays the Master in “Doctor Who”. He could never fully grasp the idea of souls living on by entering into another person’s body. I think that part of him just didn’t want to believe, he just wanted his wife back and the other part of him couldn’t believe because it really is a crazy notion. But he lost so much, his job, his baby, his wife, and his friend from high school.

Millie Bobby Brown playing Madison/Marcus Fox was by far my favorite character. And again, its not because of her role in Stranger things. I just find it fascinating when an actor or actress can play the same character, but with split personalities. Miss Brown did a fantastic job at this especially for one that is just ten years old. Marcus Fox’s role played by a ten year old I’m sure was no easy thing; just trying to act like an adult when your a kid is no easy thing I’m sure.  I did like how her character ended. Marcus was shut out and Madison got to stay with her parents. “What comes around stays right here.” I hope I got that right. I couldn’t find the words in the internet.

The second review is on an Asian Drama “Someone Like You”

This drama got a thumbs up from me on Netflix. Most Asian Dramas do. If I don’t like a show, like really don’t like it I don’t usually finish it. It’s that boring and slow. In a lot of them, all of them really, weather its centered around adults or high school students, part of the thing I love best is the romance. Yes, it is a bit unrealistic, but that’s what makes more, well more. Plus, it’s the kind of romance I’d like to have with someone, so at least I’m not the only one with that idea of romance running through their head. I just love the way they make me feel. And you should serious watch me while I’m watching one. I’m probably more entertaining than the show itself. And I’m okay with that. In this show, other than the romance, what I loved the most was how each of the characters intertwined with each other. The caregiver was hired while her brother was priest. The caregiver’s boss has a sister who, at first, couldn’t stand the caregiver, but fell for her brother the priest. The caregiver’s friends ends up falling for the boss’ friend. Then there is the girl from the inn who has the caregiver’s sister’s heart who was the boss’s fiance. Crazy web that probably made no sense at all! just watch the show. You won’t be disappointed.   

The third review is a book!

I enjoyed the book, but I’m only giving it a 3 star. Actually I wanted to give it 3.5 stars, but I couldn’t get Goodreads to let me do that. I wanted to read more about her personally, but after her acting career picked up in “My Fair Lady” that is all she ever really talked about. And of course she would talk about the other actors and the famous people she met. Which is cool. I just wanted more on her. Learning about her and her personal family was very fascinating. Her mother left and ended up having an affair with a man who later became Julie’s Pop. The couple were still married, so I say affair. Julie gets “raised” by her mother while her brother gets raised by their father. They do end up getting divorced and the mother marries Pop while Father marries a woman named Wen, I do believe was her name. What I loved best about Julie’s father was that when he made a promise he kept it, when he made plans he kept with her he kept them, he was even willing to take his wife back and the child she had. That’s a dedicated man. However, he wasn’t Julie’s biological father. Julie’s mother had had an affair during a dull period of their marriage. Julie met him once or twice, but wasn’t interested in a connection. Learning about her early years was very nice because it was personal. I would love to meet this fine women in person. I can’t get enough of her Sound of Music or part as a queen in Princess Diaries.

TV Show: The Shannara Chronicles

Finished!

I have to say, the second season was far better than the first. I definitely preferred Princess Amberle’s role in season two than I did in season one. I honestly didn’t care for her role; and I think that’s because I expected more from her being the princess and all.

Eretria and Mareth are my favorite characters out of all of them. They both have bad-ass fighting skills and their family heritage stories was a really nice twist to their characters. I’m ever so glad that Mareth ended up with Wil and that he was able to let go of Amberle. Though, when I thought Wil was dead, I was thinking it would have been better for him to die loving Amberle and not Mareth. But Wil is still alive!

So, on Netflix I gave it a thumbs up; however, if they still had the stars, which I wish they did, I would give a 3.5.  The first reason being, the first season was not all that and the acting was something to be desired. I am glad it got better. The second reason, is the LG parts that were put in the show. I didn’t mind it so much in the first season because it was more teasing and joshing, but it went to a whole other level in the second season and I’m not fan of LG; especially when it makes no sense since Eretria did say she had the hots for Wil.

Now, the big question is, will there be a third season or not. At the end of the second season it did say to be continued, but I know the show has been canceled. Which sucks, because Wil is alive and surrounded by dozens of Furies.

Who does that!

Currently Watching

On Netflix:

I’m still watching “Royal Pains”, Season 4 out of eight seasons. The bothers are awesome, but I get tired of the episodes where they fight. Chalk it up to personal issues. So glad that Divya ended up turning down the arranged marriage set up by her parents. She deserves to find love and be happy. I enjoy watching this medical show during my third shift. Helps the time go by fast and finish a show somewhat quickly.

Half way through “The Shannara Chronicles”.

Eretria is by far my favorite character in this second season. Her fighting skills are what I wanted to see in the first season. In fact it’s what I expected from the Princess in the first season. Two new things I like the best is her heritage; I’m curious to see where this is supposed to go. The second is the time traveling with Wil and Mareth. I love time traveling. Mareth is also another character I love. Her magic and her fighting are also what I was expecting to see in the first season. I think that Wil and Mareth are perfect for each other. Plus Mareth is outside of the whole love triangle thing. I do hope that this second season has and ending.

And before I forget, I kept meaning to say, I’ve been wanting to know who the world “ended” in the first place. Were there always elves, and gnomes, and trolls, ect. when there were humans, high schools, and cars? Or did they came after? And what happened to the world in the first place How did it all happen? Perhaps is is explained in the book.

“Someone Like You”; it takes me a while to finish my Asian Dramas, that’s why I only watch one at a time.

Just ten episodes left and I will have it finished. I wish I could finish them faster, but when you have to read the captions, well, I kind of need a break after a couple of episodes. The second picture with the lights is where I am actually at in the show. He just asked her to be his girl, but of course it ends without her answer. I just love the way these shows make me feel. All giddy and free inside. I suppose that’s love.

As for Hulu:

“Intruders”, a very strange alien show.

I actually picked it out because of Millie Bobby Brown. That’s really about it. Seeing her in “Stranger Things”, I had to see what else she was in. I’m not really sure what I think about the show. It’s very odd. Her part however, is rather scary. Going from a sweet little kid to a serious, mad adult. Her transitions are scary good.

I’ve recently started “Cloak and Dagger”. Just the first episode, but it’s good so far. I think it has a better start than “Runways.” That show took too long to get to the point and didn’t go the way I expected at all. I love that Olivia Holt is starring in this show, I enjoyed some of her Disney stuff.

Anime: One Week Friends

This anime, One Week Friends, is a very moving and inspiring show on the impact of true friendship.

It shows that friendships have there struggles and wavers, but it only takes one’s determination to show the other that they are meant to be.

I recommend this 12 episode Anime. I finished it in three days. I bet you can finish it in two.

NERD GIRL PROBLEMS

Unfortunately this does not happen as often as I would like. I think it’s my ADD, I’m too into literally everything going on around me, even while I’m reading.

I’ve just learned to ignore things pretty easily. Like if I’m out at a park or the library reading, I am aware of what’s going on around me, I just ignore, pretending to be absorbed in my book.

TV Show: The Shannara Chroncles.

Eretria’s character has improved in the first episode of season two alone. Her fighting skills are better and her emotions seem more real. I don’t like that she is into girls. I mean she did have the hots for Will, so I think the twist makes no sense. I love her hair due. For the most part it is the same, but I love the color added into it.

Will is just as hot as ever. I can’t decide if I miss his long hair or not. He looks good with both styles. At least now we can see his ears better. I swear though he better not fall for another girl, even Mareth the druids daughter. She is a big improvement to the show. She can actually fight! And she has magic. Can’t get much better than that.

Bandon’s character got way cooler. Even if he is bad. His new look is hot. Though the long hair in one years times is a bit unrealistic. I like his new minions though. Makes me think of “harry potter” and the death eaters.

As for Garet, his fighting skills are wicked! But I think he forces himself to much, tries too hard to be sly and cool.

Oh and this whole time I thought Bandon was actually Ben.
