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 […]

Ranking the Cast Members of  Vanderpump Rules

Ranking the Cast Members of Vanderpump Rules

Vanderpump Rules is returning to our televisions and hearts come January 7. As someone who has watched the previous 7 seasons very recently, I felt that made me the perfect person to judge fairly and unbiasedly rank the cast members. 1. Ariana Yes, Ariana can […]

What I’ve been watching this week – December 17

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!

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 […]

Richard Osman’s House of Games

We discovered Richard Osman’s House of Games this week through my YouTube recommendations, and we are OBSESSED.

It’s a daily show with 4 celebrities that battle it out over 5 rounds of quiz questions. The questions have a different spin on usual quiz shows, which is part of what has made watching it so fun. The final round is always ‘Answer Smash’, in which you see a photo or a song and you’re given a clue and you have to smash them together for the answer. It’s pretty similar to Jeopardy’s ‘Before and After’ category.

This is a charming show, with a lot of episodes to dig through and I can’t wait.

Pointless Celebrities

I discovered Pointless while we were in Iceland. I mentioned that I would love to be able to find this show and watch it again. It was super exciting to find it online, and it was the celebrity version! I usually know one or two people per episode, which makes it even more fun to watch.

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 […]

I was away this past week, so I expected to not even write a post because I didn’t think I’d be watching much television. I don’t know why I thought that, I love watching tv! Our AirBNB had an excellent selection of channels, featuring many […]

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 great. I love that they went with 10 queens and we can really focus on them. There seems to be a clear divide in social media queens and performing queens which seems to be more prominent than on American seasons. This is pretty evident in the Lip Sync For Your Life performances. They have been, uh, rough.

I’m really excited to see where the rest of this season goes.

Schitt’s Creek

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to watch this show. It is unbelievable.

I just finished the third season, and I felt that this season is where the characters really began to learn and grow from the mistakes they’ve made in the past. They’ve been able to become better people and closer as a family. All without losing that ‘Rose’ charm that we love.

The writing in this show is truly outstanding. There are so many great quotes in every single episode. I laugh out loud every time I watch this show. But it doesn’t sacrifice real, genuine moments just for laughs. It might be a perfect show???

Top Chef Charleston

In trying to find something to have on during the day while working, I have turned to Top Chef Charleston. It was the first season I watched while it was on. It has a great group of returnees, and a pretty decent cast of newbies with a few standouts (hi Jim!!!!).

I always love the idea of a Fan vs Favourites season of any show, but the veterans always have a huge upper hand in the competition. At this point I’d rather just see an all newbies or all returnees season.

Hustlers I know, I went to go see a movie in theatres, I can’t believe it either. With all the hype surrounding the movie, and with the absolutely unreal, star-studded cast, I felt like I couldn’t miss it. Especially now that I have Tuesdays free […]
