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 […]

Taskmaster The 9th season of my favourite show has come to an end. The cast this season was perfection. They had incredible chemistry together, which made the studio segments really fun to watch. This charm had been sort of missing the last few seasons, so […]

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 the charm of the British version.

Ex on the Peak is arriving in December. Based on the cast and previews I’ve seen, I have high hopes for that.

The Challenge

The Challenge has been really stellar this season. I always look forward to watching the newest episodes. It’s kind of nice that a lot of the big names went out early so it gives other characters a chance to shine.

The latest episode was, uh, not my favourite I’d say. The Jordan-Turbo fighting storyline is just not for me. And I don’t know how much longer I can take Cara Maria’s sanctimoniousness. To hear me talk all about the latest episode, check out the Dom and Colin podcast with Matt and Brian here.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK

This season has been perfection. Everything about it has been wonderful. It’s been an absolute joy to watch. The latest girl groups episode was my favourite of the season. It felt very true to girl groups, and was an interesting and fun challenge. I really hope this spark can be injected into the new US season of the show.

Drag Race UK RuPaul’s Drag Race has finally made it across the pond. The first two episodes have been a lot of fun. I am biased because I feel like a British (or Northern Irish!) accent makes everything better. I think the cast has been […]

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!

Murder Mystery

I’ve been telling my boyfriend for weeks (maybe even months) that I wanted to watch the Netflix well murder mystery, starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston so not to watch it without me. And because I need to be in a very specific mood to watch a movie. After a while of pestering, I was finally in the mood to watch it.

It was a light, fun movie. I don’t think it’s going to win any Oscars, but that’s not really what they were going for. I enjoyed watching it. It had everything I expected from this movie. I can’t see myself going back and rewatching this movie over and over, but I had a good time watching it.

Southern Charm

After my Vanderpump Rules marathon, many suggested to watch its Bravo counterpart, Southern Charm. It’s set in the gorgeous city of Charleston, South Carolina and it follows a a group of “elites” in the city.

I definitely don’t enjoy this show nearly as much as I liked VPR. VPR had an air of reliability (at least in the beginning) that Southern Charm just doesn’t have. I don’t know what it’s like to be a 55-y-o man with family money that is running for state senate and impregnating 22-y-olds.

It’s fine, I’ll keep watching but I’m not dying to watch each episode.

The Bachelorette We said goodbye to Hannah’s season of The Bachelorette in a very unique way. It was broadcasted to us, more or less, that Hannah was not with her final pick still and that probably meant she picked Jed. Which she did. Not a […]
