Making a Murderer

steven-avery

I definitely watched this a lot later than everyone else. I heard a lot of good things about it and was excited to see what it was about. If you haven’t seen it yet i’ll tell you what it is about. It is about a man you is Steven Avery who was wrongly accused of a crime. He then was found innocent and released. He then was arrested for a another crime years later. He says he was innocent but was still found guilty. 

I never really watched a documentary crime show. This was a new genre for me and it was really interesting. I never really knew what went into a case and seeing what went on in this one was so crazy to believe. I watched all the episodes and if you ask me if I think he was guilty, I would tell you that I honestly don’t know. The first time I would say he was guilty but then we find out he was innocent.  So the 2nd time it is hard to say. You see the deck was stacked against him and that the town didn’t like his family. There are so many unknown parts that it is hard to see the truth. I liked this show because it was something I have never really seen before.  If you haven’t seen it already ( which is highly unlikely), go and watch. If you have never watched a documentary, it is a little slower than scripted shows but totally worth it. And as always The Show Must Go On.

Season Finale: Jane The Virgin

Ro-Xo

If you haven’t watched the season finale for Jane the Virgin STOP READING. There are spoilers ahead.

* * *

The finale as you may already know was focused around Ro & Xo’s wedding. This finale did not disappoint and it was filled with surprises, drama, and questions that need answers. 

1st – Rogelio finally got the child that he wanted but how will that with an ex that he hates and his new marriage to Xiomara?

2nd – Petra & Raphael vs. Jane and Raphael: who does he truly love and who will he end up with? This is a very tangled web with so many layers. I need to see how this turns out.

3rd – The Twisted Sisters: Anezka & Luisa created some type of bond in that cab ride. I’m not gonna lie I think they are awesome villains. Seeing a confident Luisa (even though she is evil) is refreshing. Anyway what will happen to Petra and Raphael not that their sisters have the upper hand.   

4th & Last – Tyler Posey!!! I had heard he would be a part of the show but I didn’t realize he would come during the finale. I was super excited to see him make an appearance because if you can’t tell, I love him. I can not wait to see what his character will bring to the show and what type of love interest he is for Jane. This addition could get a little messy but I can’t wait to see what happens. 

I loved this show and I am already ready for the next season. Unfortunately I have to wait but let us see what next season will bring.  And The Show Must Go On.

The People vs O.J. Simpson

the -people-vs-oj

I finally watched it! I know, I know, it took me long enough.

Before watching this, I had never really known anything about the OJ Simpson case. I had heard his name but other than that nothing else. I had watched this and I wasn’t sure how much was embellished but overall I liked it. I was watching it and was thinking that this stuff couldn’t have actually happened. After talking to my wonderful mother who had watched it when she was younger, many of the events in the show did happen.

This case is one of the most well known in America. I was so intrigued from beginning to end. I understand why this show was so popular and successful now because of how well it was made. I honestly couldn’t take my eyes of the screen. One thing that I need to give props is to the casting team. The casting in this production was amazing. You could tell they spent a lot of time getting people that not only looked like the characters but were very talented.

After watching this show, people asked me what I thought. Guilty or not guilty? Honestly, I don’t know. I didn’t watch the actual case so I don’t believe I can even give an opinion. This show is the only interaction I had with the OJ Simpson trial. My opinion of the show is that it an amazing work of art. If crime shows are your thing, then you will enjoy this show. I would love to know what other people think. Not just of this articular case but of the show in general.

13 Reasons Why is a Must Watch

13-reasons-why

What Up What Up What Up!

I watched this show in 2 days. I had first seen previews for it a couple weeks before and that really caught my eye. I also learned that this show was based on a book, which I had never known. I only watched the promo for it so that is why I decided to check it out.

If you don’t already know, this show is about a girl who commits suicide. She leaves behind tapes for the 13 reasons why she decided to this and who was a reason she did it. Whoever is listening to the tapes, is a reason why she decided to commit suicide. It is a heavy kind of show but it is so real, which is why I think it makes it so hard to watch. I think the creators of this show did a really good job of showing the affects of bullying and what someone who is contemplating suicide might be going through. I also think that they did a fantastic job with providing a diverse cast. The actors weren’t bad either. These charters were well rounded and had different levels to them. And it was interesting to see how all their stories interacted. I think the actors did a good job of showing the different depths of each character.

None of the topics in the show are easy and I think they showed us as viewers how hard it can be. Some scenes were uncomfortable and I think in a way that is a good thing, because sometimes people need to be uncomfortable for it to affect them. 

It took me so long to write this because I would ask friends if they watched it and what they thought. We would say what characters we loved and hated. We would talk about certain events. Overall, everyone thought it was so entertaining and informative. It was one of those shows that you immediately want to see the next episode to see what happens. I had to take a couple days just to reflect on what I just watched.

I think show is one that everyone should watch. There are some hard scenes so it is more for older viewers, but the show is amazing. You never know how your words or actions will affect someone. You never know what they are going through or dealing with in their life. 

This show is a Netflix original. I am probably not the first place that talked about it, but check it out. My last thing is, Do you think there will be a season 2?

The Get Down

the-get-down

What Up! What Up! What Up!

I see this advertised on Netflix a lot so I thought I would check it out. Also, a friend recommended it to me and said I would like it. I watched the first episode and didn’t really get into it until after the 2nd episode.

This show takes place in the Bronx around the disco era. The basics are about a bunch of kids who want to do more with their life. They all have dreams and aspirations and hope to reach them some day. OK, so let’s dig a little deeper in the show. Disco music is the spirit and heart of this show. It is what everyone is listening to and disco DJs are the kings of their neighborhood. If you are a good DJ, you are loved by many and that is what a lot of people want to be. It really shows how disco is a part of the Bronx and how it makes them feel. Not only is it about music but it is also about power and how everyone wants it. This show also shows how far some people will go to get that power. What really stuck out to me in the show was seeing what these kids are going through to make a name for themselves or to even get out of the Bronx. The cast o kids is pretty awesome and among them is Jaden Smith. This is a cool show to check out. It is a Netflix Original and there is only one season right now but another is coming out April 7th.

Please comment below on what you think about the show. And as always The Show Must Go On.

Women’s History Month: Sophia Bush

sophia-bush

It is sadly the last post of women’s history month. For this post I will be talking about Sophia Bush!

I absolutely love Sophia Bush. I first saw her in One Tree Hill as Brooke Davis. You can never forget about Brooke Davis. Sophia Bush spent years on our television screens making us laugh, angry, and cry with everything that Brook Davis had to go through.

You can now see Sophia Bush on Chicago P.D. It is a different role than Brooke Davis but I think she plays the part really well. It is nice to see her in a different role and excel at it. One thing I like about Sophia Bush is that if she believes in something she isn’t afraid to show it. I love her as an actress and I hope to see her in more things. 

There are some amazing women doing amazing things in this industry. They are making a difference and paving the way for future generations. I just wanted to take time to thank them and celebrate their accomplishments.

Guess Who is Coming Back to TV

Parks and Recreation - Season 6

I just heard some of the best news and I had to share it with the world. Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman are coming back to TV!

I am a huge Parks and Recreation fan and I am jumping with joy from this news!  Unfortunately, it will not be their characters Ron Swanson and Leslie Knope. Instead of a scripted show this is going to be a reality TV series. 

The show will be called The Handmade Project and it is a competition show. This show will be showing all different types of people that will be making/ crafting different projects each episode. Their artwork will then be shown to a panel of judges, which is where the competition aspect will come in. Both Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman seem very excited to be a part of this show. I am excited to see the premiere of this show and I can not wait to see them together again!

Women’s History Month: Julie Plec

julie_plec_

Continuing with the current theme of Women’s History Month, we will be talking about Julie Plec.

Julie Plec is a producer and writer mostly know for The Vampire Diaries. I remember watching this show in high school and going back to school the next day, and talking to my friends about it. She is also know for the spin off series The Originals. You can say she is doing very well in the television industry. Even though Vampire Diaries ended its long run, The Originals is still going strong. These aren’t the only shows she has wrote for though. She also wrote for The Tomorrow People, Kyle XY and Containment. Not only can she write and produce but she has directed too. She is a woman that is another boss in this industry and a triple threat. I can’t wait to see what else she brings to television in the future. 

  There are some amazing women doing amazing things in this industry. They are making a difference and paving the way for future generations. I just wanted to take time to thank them and celebrate their accomplishments.

Please comment below if there are any other women in the television that should be recognized for their role. And The Show Must Go On.

Women’s History Month: Aimee Carrero

AIMEE CARRERO

For Women’s History Month, we will be talking about Aimee Carrero. 

Aimee Carrero is a new face that I have being seeing on television. Her name has also been coming up a lot too within the television industry. I saw her in small roles in some movies but the television show I first saw her in was Young and Hungry. She plays Sofia which is the roommate to Gabi the main character. I think Aimee Carrero is a great part of the cast and is the perfect person to play Sofia.

Acting in Young and Hungry isn’t the reason why we are talking about her. Aimee Carrero is the voice of Elena of Avalor. Elena is the first Latina princess for Disney and is a great role for Aimee. This is a show that is currently on Disney. I am hoping that a Disney movie will come out of this because that is long over due. I think her career is just getting started and we will see a lot more from her. 

There are some amazing women doing amazing things in this industry. They are making a difference and paving the way for future generations. I just wanted to take time to thank them and celebrate their accomplishments.

Women’s History Month: Ashley Tisdale

 

ashley-tisdale

Continuing with women’s history month, let us talk about Ashley Tisdale.

Many may know her from High School Musical or even Suite Life of Zack and Cody. She also was a voice for Phineas and Ferb and played on a show call Hellcats, which only lasted a couple seasons. There are other things she have played on in the past couple of years but that is not all she has done. Ashley Tisdale is one of my favorite girl bosses at the moment. She is a producer of the show Young and Hungry which is doing very well. She has a Youtube channel that has been successful too. She also has her own makeup collection called Illuminate. 

One thing I like about Ashley Tisdale is that she is making a name for herself outside the acting world. I like how she is doing a lot of different things and is doing well with all of them. It just shows how talented she is and how much of a girl boss she is. She is truly an inspiration and girl boss goals.

There are some amazing women doing amazing things in this industry. They are making a difference and paving the way for future generations. I just wanted to take time to thank them and celebrate their accomplishments.
