Marvel’s Agent of SHIELD S3: JEMMA. WHAT ARE YOU DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOING?!?!!
Quantico S1: WHY DOES THIS SHOW HATE SIMON ASHER?! HE’S LIKE MY FAVE. UGH.

The Mindy Project S4: Damn this show is realistic AF.
The Magicians S1: Questionable acting made better by THAT CLIFFHANGER. HOOOOLYYYY.

Top Chef S13: THANK GOD THE PRETENTIOUS ONE IS GONE. My favourite chefs are: Kwame, Carl, Jeremy, and Isaac.
Unforgettable S4: I’m honestly surprised they brought this show back. I chirp it…but I did watch 3 seasons of this already.
Shows I Am Behind On/Consider Dropping
Heroes: Reborn (ep 1), Blindspot (ep 2), Scream Queens (ep 3), Minority Report (ep 3), Code Black (ep 4), Fresh Off The Boat (ep 4), Grandfathered (ep 5)
Inside Out: Re-watched this gem. Still feeling the feels.
Minions: I feel like the trailer was basically all the laughs in the film.
Sicario: I found the directing to be really good even if the whole premise felt like a 2-hour Criminal Minds episode. Highly recommended! (Review pending)
Ant Man: I mean…it’s Marvel. You can’t really go wrong.
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
Boehm – Hotline Bling (feat. Charlie Puth): There’s been a lot of remixes for Charlie Puth’s cover. This just another one to add to the list. It has tropical house vibes.
Taylor Berrett – Hypnotize Me: …I heard this song at the mall.
Swanky Tunes & Arston – At The End of the Night (feat. C Todd Nielsen): Though classified as tropical house, this song is more heavy on acoustic guitar than anything and is just so relaxing.
Pentatonix – Sweet Nothing (obp. Calvin Harris & Florence Welch): I DID NOT KNOW THEY COVERED THIS SONG UNTIL RECENTLY WTF. It was a Patreon exclusive but there’s a version on YouTube. Oh my god Kirstie.
Rixton – Wait On Me: Some throwback tracks. Chirp me if you want but I actually quite enjoy Rixton. Plus all their covers they do (i.e. I Knew You Were Trouble) are solid AF.
