Wow, it’s been a while. 7 months to be exact. What have I been doing in that time? Still watching stuff, I assure you. Read on to find out…
Have you ever realised that, as an adult, there is very little time for leisure, once we subtract the day job; sleep; chores; food; exercise; and socialising out of the 24 hours we get in a day? Well, I realised that in February of this year, after my leisure and socialising time combined into one great big time vacuum known only as VALORANT (look it up). I was watching less TV, and I also had significantly less time to write about every single thing I did have the time to watch.
So first off, a new rule: I no longer have to write about everything I watch in detail. Some stuff is honestly just so mediocre (or old and therefore already written about online all over the place) that it’s just not worth it and it’s certainly not fun to write about for more than a few sentences. I will, however. still include everything and say a little something about them all, because I still want this blog to serve as some kind of archive.
I will say I’m hoping to write some longer form reviews for shows such as: Atypical (Season 4), Control Z (Season 2), The One, and Brand New Cherry Flavour. For now, I’ll leave you with the first in a line of micro-reviews for everything else I don’t write a dedicated post about:
An initially interesting (and charmingly early 2000s) comedy about a bunch of slacking teachers, this show fizzled out as more and more of the original cast were dropped with every new season, to the point where I stopped watching near the start of Season 3.
Disenchantment (Season 3)
The fantasy comedy cartoon from Simpson’s creator Matt Groening continued in fine form as we saw more of the world inhabited by Bean and her subjects, with much of this season set in the bizzare-for-many-reasons Steamworld. I’m looking forward to the next one.
Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel
An incredibly chilling true crime documentary about the disappearance of Elisa Lam while she stayed at the crime-ridden Cecil Hotel. Watch some rather odd figures retell the story of their time at the hotel, and look on in shock at the creepy CCTV footage. Great for true crime fans like me.
