Retrospective is a monthly post to rewind all of the happenings, thoughts, and discussions here at thoughts and afterthoughts.
A Rewind Of:
Think Aloud/Terrible Protagonist:
Sad category is sad.
Movie Review: The Light Between Oceans
Memes (Top Ten Tuesday):
[Book Events]: Raincoast Teens Read Preview (2017 Winter/Spring)
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!)
Big Brother US18: Though I gave up on this season, I heard the results annnnnnnd nope. Not saying the winner didn’t deserve it but that was a $450k decision from 2nd places position.
Designated Survivor S1: I am honestly intrigued by this premise because I never knew this thing actually happens. For those who don’t know, a Designated Survivor is someone who sits out during a large scale event when the President etc. gather together in one place. And in the event of a terrible event, that DS would become the acting President.
How To Get Away With Murder S3: Hmmm.
Mr. Robot S2: …upon writing this post I realized I haven’t even watched the last two episodes of this season.
Sing It On S2: Their 3rd place set is fire. Link to Youtube here.
Suits S5: BITTERSWEET.
The Bachelorette Canada S1: CANADIANS ARE SO NICE. WE ARE SO NICE.
The Blacklist S3: I am partial to not having the spin-off happen so my LizKeen can stay together…
The Good Place S1: If I’m being honest, I’m trying to not take this show very seriously (like how I was with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) but I’m also… …imagine watching this show with a resting bitch face. That’s me.
The Night Of: This 8 episode show is incredibly nuanced. Really good.
Quantico S2: I AM STILL SO ANGRY THEY AXED MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER FROM S1. But really, this schooling format again for Season 2?
Westworld S1: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ …
Younger S3: Who would have known this show would have so many publishing references that I could actually understand? I binged the first two seasons easy. All readers/bloggers should watch this full stop.
X-Men: Apocalypse: Nothing special. I was hoping Jubilee would have a greater role.
The Final Girls: Along the lines of Cabin in the Woods, this film smartly deconstructs the horror tropes we love so much.
A Monster Calls: A very faithful adaptation.
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
I don’t that many new music as I’ve been listening to oldies.
I am going to write this month off as being total shit.
