Retrospective is a monthly post to rewind all of the happenings, thoughts, and discussions here at thoughts and afterthoughts.
A Rewind Of:
#33 – Why I’d Be A Terrible Protagonist: Reason #12: “What is a Map?” (If you have any thoughts as to “reasons” why us humans would be terrible protagonists, do let me know!)
Memes (Top Ten Tuesday):
Television (Not a full list of what I watch):
(If you love to talk television, hit me up on Twitter and we can share feels together!)
Arrow S4: Behind.
Awkward S5: Writing needs to move on from Matty
Big Brother Canada S4: I’ve basically stopped watching after the main people I wanted to win left the house (I pretty much do this every season LOL).
Containment S1: I don’t know why I hype myself up for these shows. It’s terrible.
Criminal Minds S11: CAN I EVEN CONTINUE WATCHING AFTER THAT DEPARTURE?
Daredevil S1: Finished Season 1 (finally) and oh boy what a good show.
Faking It S2: The relationships rehashing the same dynamics of miscommunication is getting a tad tedious now.
Game of Thrones S6: R+L=J incoming. (Fun fact: I’ve not been annoyed by Sansa yet this season. It’s a record!) Also, Ramsay’s character arc is rather annoying to me now, if a bit one dimension idk.
House of Cards S4: Haven’t started.
iZombie S2: Am I behind…?
Limitless S1: Behind.
Legends of Tomorrow S1: Dropped.
Lucifer S1: Behind.
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD S3: YO NO ONE WARNED ME ABOUT THAT DEPATURE WHAT THE FUCK 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 :(… No, but seriously, a “spy’s goodbye” holy shit the waterworks came on.
Orphan Black S4: NEW CLONE NEW CLONE NEW CLONE. Man do I love that Hendrix household.
Quantico S1: As I watch this show, it’s both engrossing and annoying at the same time courtesy of Alex. But why.
Reign S3: Continues being a convoluted show.
Shadowhunters S1: I know the season is over–and that it got renewed–but I just haven’t continued watching it.
The 100 S3: Behind.
The Blacklist S3: Mr. Kaplan.
The Flash S2: Behind.
The Mindy Project S4: MY FAVOURITE RETURNS.
The Magicians S1: The abrupt ending (was it abrupt?) was pretty good. I enjoyed the half-formed intersection of old friends and new villains as it leaves a lot to be discovered in the next season. Overall: the premise and acting does feel initially awkward early on but it grows on you and I actually appreciated that directive intent. I’d give it a watch if you aren’t going to read the books. Basically Harry Potter meets Narnia for Adults (viewer discretion is advised).
The Vampire Diaries S7: Behind.
Zootopia: It’s probably really bad of me to say that the plot is predictable because it -is- a children’s movie but regardless of that one fact, it’s still smartly executed and overall enjoyable. Plus, since I didn’t know Shakira was voice acting in the film, it was a big “I KNOW THIS VOICE” moment when I heard her.
10 Cloverfield Lane: You know….I went into this thinking it was a claustrophobic mind fuck of a thriller. And it was. But then it got to the end and it was like “what the fuck is this shit?” and I’m just like nope. (Note: I haven’t seen the actual Cloverfield movie so maybe that’s why.)
The 5th Wave:
An enjoyable comedy movie for the family.
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
Mako – Into the Sunset: Mako will never disappoint me. Seriously such an easy peasy listen.
Sondr – Surviving (feat. Joe Cleere): Not sure if I’ve featured a tropical house in a while, so here you go.
Vicetone – Bright Side (feat. Cosmos and Creature): Revived an oldie I didn’t showcase on here (I think?)
Cash Cash – How to Love (feat. Sofia Reyes): Upbeat, groovy, and it’s Cash Cash.
WHAT IS THIS BLOGGING DECLINE?
I will attribute the decline to also having to think about what to do from an Instagram front since I recently got an account (@picturevomit)
