Ex on the Beach The latest season of Ex on the Beach finished up a few weeks ago, but I hadn’t been able to get to the last few episodes until this week. I liked this season better than last season, but it’s still missing […]

Survivor We’re a couple weeks into the new Survivor season, and I’ve been enjoying it so far. I didn’t have high hopes about the Island of the Idols twist. And I’m still not totally on board with it. The cast so far has been really […]

The Challenge

The newest season of The Challenge started a few weeks ago. This season we see the Americans face off against the Brits. I love seeing a team challenge, we haven’t seen one in ages. I don’t have high hopes that it will stay teams until the very end, though. Like with any season of The Challenge, there’s been lots of drama so far. I’m really enjoying this season even though we’re only a few episodes in.

Are You The One

The ‘come one, come all’ theme of this season was exactly what AYTO needed to bring life into a format that’s getting a little stale. Now that the season is over, I can say that it was easily one of my favourites. The cast was fantastic. I liked that it was a smaller cast, so we were able to get to know more people. I’d love to see them do another season like this.

Derry Girls

The second series of Derry Girls came to Netflix a couple months ago. I absolutely fell in love with the first series. It was so funny and endearing, and I was hoping that the second series would live up to it. There was no need to worry. The second series was amazing. I loved it so much. It even brought a little bit of an emotional element into the second half of the series. It was so magical and wonderful. Please watch it.

Schitt’s Creek

I promised in a What I’m Going To Watch This Year post a couple of months ago that I was going to watch Schitt’s Creek. I did start it, but kind of put it on the back burner. Well, I’m back baby. I’m firing through the episodes now. It is such a brilliant show. It sure helps that it’s a Canadian show too!

Love Island US I’ve been having a great time watching Love Island US. It has really surpassed any expectations I had for the show. Which were very few. I’m sorry! I was skeptical that CBS wouldn’t completely screw up a show that worked so well. […]

Sorry for the delay in this week’s WIBWTW, but it gave me more time to watch television, which is truly the greatest gift of all. The Hills: New Beginnings I was a super fan of The Hills and all associated programming for a very long […]

Taskmaster

I am so glad that my favourite show is back. In the 9th season of Taskmaster, 5 comedians/presenters/general brits on tv come together to complete tasks and then watch each other complete the tasks. Sounds not great in concept, but holy F is it funny. I genuinely laugh out loud at many points throughout the episode. The first episode of the new season was great. Of course it was. I don’t know the cast super well, but I am excited to see where it goes.

The Challenge

I’ve been really enjoying The Challenge this season, for the most part at least. I am super over Paulie and Cara’s storyline. The Brits have been great, and I’ve completely changed my mind about Big Brother contestants being on the show. They have been a lot of fun over the last few seasons. I chat more about this latest episode on the MTV Reality RHAP Up.

Top Chef Canada

Boy has this season been a drag. I just can’t get into the Canadian version of one of my favourite shows, which I hate to say. I’m hoping it’s just this season. Nearly all of the women went home, pretty well right off the bat. And I’m pretty sure the season started with less women than men, but I’m not fact-checking myself on that one. The challenges have been fine, and the guest judges have been great, but we spend almost no time with the guest judges. The regular judging panel seem to take this all too seriously. I’m going to finish out the season, but it’s not appointment viewing.

Drag Race Season 11

Yet another disappointment on the tv front. Season 11 has just not been incredibly compelling for me. The cast is good, but it’s like the editors haven’t done a great job at conveying the story. Some of the eliminations seem completely out of whack, and I don’t totally find myself rooting for anyone in particular

The Bachelorette

Okay, so this new season hasn’t started yet, but it’s about to! You can catch our draft podcast on the newest cast here.

Love Island Season 3 Okay, it took me a while but now I am fully on board with Love Island. It only took 30 episodes. That’s not even hyperbole. I have finally been able to connect with the people on the show and the relationships […]

I didn’t watch anything too crazy this week. A lot of my regular shows are finito. My Top Chef marathon is complete. We’ve been pretty busy, so we haven’t been watching a whole lot of television, but when the TV was on, we were watching NCAA basketball. I have no interesting thoughts about that.

But what I would like to do is highlight one of my favourite YouTube playlists. And that is MTV Ranked.

MTV Ranked has done you the favour of taking all of your favourite MTV moments, editing them down, and putting them into video lists.

Here are a few of my favourites:
