The Circle I didn’t have high hopes for The Circle, but I found myself very excited for the next set of episodes to drop. Sure, some of it feels a little cheesy. But, I’ve been having a great time watching it. I love being able […]

Nailed It After watching all of the holiday episodes of Nailed It, I couldn’t stop and am now devouring the regular episodes of the show. It makes me laugh so hard. I love that no one takes it too seriously, which is absolutely the case […]

We are in the throes of December, which means a very holiday/wintery version of What I’ve been watching this week!!

Elf

Elf is my all-time favourite movie. Sorry! That’s just the way it is!! In my heyday I would watch it 3 or 4 times a day for weeks. I don’t do interests lightly. I even decorated the lounge of my dorm in first year like the living room in the movie.

Anyway, as a fully-fledged adult with more responsibilities and a dedication to watching seasons of America’s Next Top Model from over a decade ago, I only watch it 1 or 2 times a year. We got our first watch in while wrapping Christmas presents (a task I despise!)

I really feel like this movie holds up. It still has the charm it did when it first came out. I love watching it!

Nailed It: Holiday Edition

I’ve watched a bit of Nailed It in the past and have always enjoyed it. I put on the holiday series on a whim, as I’ve been meaning to watch it.

What a joy this show is. It’s just pure joy. It’s so funny, light and earnest. I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. I cannot wait to finish watching the rest of the series.

Ex on the Peak

After a couple of pretty bland seasons of Ex on the Beach, I wasn’t super hyped about Ex on the Peak, despite a pretty great cast. Three episodes in and I’m really enjoying it. Having the winter theme, they could play it off like it wasn’t an Ex on the Beach-type show. It’s a fun watch and has more charm than the last few seasons did.

Holiday Specials of British Panel Shows

I can’t stop won’t stop with British Panel shows. We just wanted a nice holiday twist. We found some Christmas episodes of Would I lie to you? and Pointless. The WILTY episodes are really fantastic. Seek them out!

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 […]

What I’ve been watching this week – December 10

This was the week that I’ve finally gotten into the holiday spirit with my viewing habits.

A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding – This was a sequel to 2017’s much-beloved holiday movie A Christmas Prince where a journalist goes undercover as a tutor to get access to the Royals of  Aldovia. Obviously in that one hi jinks ensue and the commoner and the price fall in ~love~. In this movie Amber, our future queen, struggles with losing her identity to fit in with palace protocol.  I think you can tell by the title of this movie whether or not you are going to like it. And I knew I as going to like it. It’s obviously kitschy and a little lame, but honestly that’s what I look for in a movie. I enjoyed the heck out of this.

Four Christmases – This is one of my boyfriend’s favourite Christmas movies, so we watched it this weekend. I always forget how much I enjoy this movie and also Reese Witherspoon.

Elf – This is both my favourite Christmas movie, and my favourite movie of all time. It’s a holiday tradition to watch it at least 10 times before Christmas, so here’s to another 9 viewings.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular – Well, this was certainly an interesting piece of television, wasn’t it? I was really excited to see some of my favourite queens from seasons Christmases past decked out in holiday attire. It was a really fun special to watch, and there were some really excellent looks going on – but it did feel a little disconnected and odd. If you looked away from the screen for one moment, you came back wondering if you were still watching the same show. But in all honestly, I will probably watch this again next year. 

Top Chef Kentucky – I am very excited that one of my favourite shows is back! Top Chef Kentucky premiered this week, and it felt like being home. The cheftestants team up to make some dishes without knives before running in a race of sorts with dishes that represent their cooking. I love this show so much and I am very excited about this cast. I talk about the episode on the reality tv rhap up top chef podcast
