Why I’m Excited for Matt James to be The Bachelor

Why I’m Excited for Matt James to be The Bachelor

The Bachelor has named their new lead, even though Clare Crawley‘s season of The Bachelorette hasn’t even been filmed yet. In an unprecedented move, ABC has announced that a Black man, Matt James, will be their new Bachelor. He may seem familiar, even if he […]

Eulogizing Survivor: Winners at War

Eulogizing Survivor: Winners at War

Here we are, the morning after another season finale of Survivor. In many ways, it’s hard to believe this season even happened. This show has been on for 20 years, an accomplishment in itself. We got 20 winners to come and play again for the […]

My Favourite ‘Comfort’ Shows

My Favourite ‘Comfort’ Shows

We are living in a weird, uncertain time that leaves us grasping for any sense of joy and normalcy. One way to do that, in my humble opinion, is to sit down with a few of your favourite comfort shows (also go for a walk outside).

Here are my favourite comfort shows:

Great British Baking Show

Any iteration of the Baking Show/Bake-Off feels like a warm blanket. The show is a competition, sure, but there’s no cutthroat element to it. Every season the cast makes beautiful bakes all while being incredibly wonderful and supportive to each other. It’s a beautiful, warm, wonderful show.

Where to watch it: CBC Gem in Canada, Netflix in USA

Taskmaster

I have been saying this is my favourite show for a couple years now. My dear friend Lauren introduced it to me, and I’ve been trying to make as many people watch it as I can. It is incredibly funny and creative. I have seen every season multiple times and I genuinely laugh out loud during every single episode.

Where to watch it: Youtube

Pointless

Pointless is one of my favourite British game shows. It kind of has the opposite premise of Family Feud. A question is asked, and the goal is to say an answer that the least amount of people have said. It’s fun and I love trying to answer the questions.

Where to watch it: Youtube

Nailed It

Nailed It is a perfect show. I combines my two favourite things – comedy and cooking shows. It makes me laugh so hard and it feels very relatable. I believe a new season is coming out in the next few weeks which will be a godsend.

Where to watch it: Netflix

The Kitchen

Oh boy do I love the kitchen. I’d say we have at least 50 episodes on the PVR. It’s a great show for accessible cooking from some really great chefs. The recipes make sense to people who cook at home. I’ve picked up a lot of great tips from watching The Kitchen. It’s also just so light-hearted and fun.

Where to watch it: The Cooking Channel, Food Network, The Global TV App

Ranking the Seasons of Top Chef

Ranking the Seasons of Top Chef

With a new season of Top Chef around the corner – an All-Star season at that – it seemed like the perfect time to do my personal rankings of Top Chef. I am not a Day 1 Top Chef fan. Hell, I’m not even a […]

Reality of Love I got asked to be a guest on the Hallmarkies podcast to talk about the movie ‘Reality of Love’ which was originally released as ‘I Want to Marry Ryan Banks’ in 2004. I don’t watch many made for tv movies. Hell, I […]

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 with many baking shows.

The Circle

Sure, I started watching because everyone else was going to watch it. But now I can’t wait for the next set of episodes to drop.

In The Circle, a group of strangers, who don’t actually know what the other players in the game look or sound like, because they are all living separately and only communicate through The Circle. I was skeptical at first, but now I’m all in. Sure, a few things feel a little clunky and awkward but I think they’ll be able to work out the kinks.

Listen to me talk about the first two episodes of The Circle here.

The Bachelor

It’s back baby!!!

I’ve had a couple months to think about it, and while I was initially kind of disappointed that Peter was named The Bachelor, I am pretty sold on it now. I think he will be honest, emotional, and fun. Which is all I really want from a Bachelor. I also think the cast of women is pretty solid too. There doesn’t seem to be any obvious villains or weirdos – at least not yet.

I actually liked this premiere. It was daunting that it was 3 hours, but I liked that we got started on the first week during the premiere. It kept things moving nicely.

America’s Next Top Model Sorry, I am in a full-blown ANTM spiral. I’d like to thank the YouTube channel Top Model Channel for this. This week they posted the marathons of Cycles 15 and 16. I had seen cycle 15 before, but I think maybe […]

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK

I finally got around to watching the finale of Drag Race UK. I thought it was a great finale, and I thought the winner was very deserving of the title. I thought both queens in the final two could have easily won the competition.

I really loved this season. It made me remember why I loved Drag Race in the first place. It was such a refreshing watch. The queens were so supportive of each other throughout the season. The lack of drama was nice. The challenges were fun, but felt quintessential Drag Race with a classic British twist.

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2

This came up in my YouTube recommended videos, because of how much Top Model I’ve been watching lately. I just love Top Model, I can’t help it. I’ve really been liking this international version.

Richard Osman’s House of Games

I love this show so much. We’ve watched another couple weeks of it. It’s a trivia show, but it’s pretty funny too. Check it out if you like British Panel Shows.

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 […]
