Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.
This Week’s Theme:
Top Ten TV Moments (So Far) in 2015
Today’s prompt looks at our Top Ten Favourite Books (so far) of 2015—and it’s one I could complete—but considering I’ve been slumping for months and read exactly 10 books this year (most of them suffering from mediocrity–imo), I’m going to have to adapt this week’s theme to something I’m more familiar with. I thought about including films into the mix but I figured television had enough substance for me to roll around and die in feels with. Hopefully this doesn’t decrease my street cred as a book blogger.
But really, the only requirement for moments to stand out to me are: a) to make me have feels or b) to make me think WTFFFF? I’m a simpleton, obviously. All links refer to their IMDB site.
I WILL BE AS CRYPTIC AS POSSIBLE SO AS TO NOT SPOIL ANYTHING LOL.
If I say that scene, will you know what I’m talking about? At this point, I’m not even concerned with the motivations of the penultimate scene (although it does raise some eyebrows), it’s that scene at the end. Ugh. Help me. Never have I ever wanted to play detective more than what this show has encouraged. (Some of this is displayed in this post I wrote about theory crafting.)
It’s not even the last scene that I’m mildly jittery with feels with. I mean, sure, yeah, it’s important for progression and the introduction of other happenings but the “oh shit” moment for me was during Hardhome. Pretty sure I screamed expletives of epicness when it cut to black. Legit.
This show far exceeded any expectations I had. I mean, c’mon, Peeno Noir? A lot of my enjoyment is perhaps deeply rooted in my likeness to post-apocalyptic fiction—even if this turns it on its head—and wonders if there is no cataclysmic, world-ending moment. There’s this balance of curiosity, quirk, and genuine appreciation to life that makes this show wonderful to watch.
Do you remember that moment with the grenade—YEAH, WTF, RIGHT? Ugh. Aside from that, this season is proof of the excellence in Tatiana Maslany’s acting with clones pretending to be each other for the cause. Hey, Emmy, can you please consider genre shows now?
This show is complete bananas! I love the different faces that Liv pulls off and its nod to method acting that’s kind of akin to what Maslany does with Orphan Black. AND CAN I JUST SAY THAT OUTDOOR BBQ SCENE? What are my feels right now?! What. Are. My. Feels.
[Finally] catching up on this but it’s hella intriguing. Sick production, too. Well played, Wachowskis.
I am stoked that this show is finally taking off (after a month of waiting post early pilot release). I really hope it gets the audience it deserves because everything just feels so right with the delivery of this show. Rami Malek is on point as the lead. The official trailer is freaking gripping–you should give it a go.
I would never have imagined that CW would have that much gusto to put that much bloodshed into one scene…and I love them that much more for it.
After the mess of Pitch Perfect 2 as a representation of a cappella culture that only panders to satire comedy (which I will be the first to admit I did laugh at), this show really brings it home. Some of the arrangements are so chillingly good and is a show you should watch if you appreciate docu-series and/or a cappella music. It does try to throw poop at the fan sometimes but surely it is all in good fun. (My Pitch Perfect 2 review has some ICCA sets that are fun to watch if you’re interested.)
I’ll admit that parts of season 2’s inhuman arc felt muddled. However, I cannot discount the part involving some underwater scene in Season 1 versus the their growth up and toward the upcoming season to be anything short but excellent. And that cliffhanger just reaffirms my question: why can’t people I like just be happy?
While I think most of this season was a steamy pile of poop, the character arc of Caroline halfway through the season (and the reasons that spawned certain actions) was a touching moment; even if the show made it about Damon instead (which I don’t even know why…). I don’t even care for the finale to be honest.
This season just began so I can’t help but by ecstatic of its return.
The crossover episodes made for some really good dynamics between the characters. While I’d love for them to do it more often, I think it’s only good in small doses. I ain’t even gonna start with my dislike for Gustin not being cast as Barry/Flash in the film…
On another note, the pilot for Scream (yes, the slasher horror Scream from the 90s) airs tonight (6/30/15) as well! This I need to check out.
I watch way more television shows than I let on above but I’d definitely recommend any of the above for your viewing pleasure. (At least try the pilot out if you’re interested!)
