Sharp Objects I’ve been trying to get around to watching the shows on my ‘Shows I promise I’m going to watch in 2019‘ list. This is only going mildly well. Anyway, Sharp Objects was on this list. I read Sharp Objects in the winter and […]

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 10 & 11 I did it again guys. I accidentally fell into another ANTM binge dark hole. There are these videos on YouTube that are literally 8 hours long and it’s every episode. Which makes it perfect for a work […]

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!

Taskmaster Series 9 The new season of Taskmaster has just begun! I know I keep saying this, but Taskmaster is truly the best and funniest show I’ve ever seen. Sure, I have the tendency to be hyperbolic, but I mean it! This new season is […]

21 Jump Street

We were flicking through channels the other day and 21 Jump Street (the movie version) was juuust starting and we accidentally got hooked and watch the whole thing. We did switch to watch the movie on Netflix so we didn’t have to watch commercials.

I forgot how much I liked this movie. It brought back memories that I saw this not once, but TWICE in theatres. Gosh, what an all-star line up in this movie, I couldn’t believe it. Anyway, I thought it was great.

Love Island Series 5

I’m still trucking along in the latest season of Love Island. Still enjoying it, it’s just in a little bit of a lull for me right now.

Bachelor in Paradise

Things are still pretty exciting a couple weeks into BIP. This is usually when the season starts to slow down because everyone is in a committed couple by now. There is still quite a bit of fluidity going on with the pairings, so that is good to watch. I am really enjoying this season. I love that we are seeing Demi’s relationship with Kristian. BIP is great because you get to see more facets of the cast’s personality. Much more than you see on their OG season.

We were joined by Survivor’s Rob Cesternino last week to break down everything that’s been going on in Paradise so far.

Eulogizing Hannah B as the Bachelorette

Eulogizing Hannah B as the Bachelorette

The latest season of The Bachelorette has come to an end. Overall, I’ve got to say I really enjoyed the season. There were some bumps along the way – the heavy-handed focus on Hannah’s relationship with villain Luke P., and her choosing Jed in the […]

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 […]

Survivor – Well Survivor started a couple of weeks ago and I forgot to mention it. Not a great sign, is it? I wasn’t too keen on the ‘Edge of Extinction’ twist, nor do I particularly LOVE when there are a few returnees among a sea of newbies. Do I didn’t go into this season with particularly high hopes. And like, the show hasn’t done much to turn that thinking around. I’m not sure why, this season isn’t grabbing me in the two episodes we’ve seen so far. We will see how I feel in a few weeks.

The Bachelor – WE ARE STILL ON FENCE WATCH

Top Chef 6 – We are just MOTORING through Top Chef seasons now. Top Chef Las Vegas was a fun season with some awesome characters. But it was very clearly from early on in the season that there was only a few outcomes of who could actually win, which kind of deflated the season a bit for me. I did love the commitment to the location, adding many Las Vegas touches to the challenges.

What I’ve been watching this week – February 11

This past week I escaped the incredibly cold Canadian winter for the beaches of Mexico. My Spanish is abysmal, so I didn’t watch much television while I was down there. I did however download 5 episodes of Top Chef which I watched on repeat for […]
