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.

What Up! What Up! What Up!

I have to admit the first time I saw the promos for this show, I thought it would be bad. It looked corny and like it wasn’t worth my time. Why did I decide to watch it you ask? Well, Drew Barrymore was in it and I absolutely love her so I decided to check it out. 

After watching the first season, I have to say that I did enjoy this show. It was funnier than I thought it would be. Lets just say my first impressions were wrong about the show. It wasn’t bad like I assumed, it was actually enjoyable to watch.

If you have never heard of this show, it is a Netflix Original. Drew Barrymore plays a woman named Sheila who is a wife, mother, and real estate agent. She suddenly becomes a zombie and her family’s life completely changes. During the show the family tries to deal with this new reality and try to figure out how she got this way and how to fix it. 

If you are on the fence about the show, I say try the 1st episode and see how you like it. If you like Drew Barrymore as an actress, than you might enjoy this show also. Let me know what you like about the show in the comments below. Please like this post if you enjoyed it And The Show Must Go On.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

a-series-of-unfortunate-events

What Up! What Up! What Up!

I just finished watching A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix. I do have to say that I kind of liked it. I had read all the books when I was younger and finally a show has come out that will bring them to life. I read the books so long ago, that what had happened in them is kind of fuzzy. I might need to dig those out and reread them. I did also watch the movie that came out with Jim Carrey and I loved that cast a lot. I was hesitant even to watch this show because I loved the movie and I didn’t want the show to disappoint.

I think that Neil Patrick Harris did a great job and is perfect to play Count Olaf. While watching the show, it was great to see a series I loved come back to life. I think the show stayed more true to the book than the movie had, which I greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately (no pun intended) for me, I kept comparing the show to the movie. I had loved the movie so much that it was hard for me personally to appreciate the show completely on its own. Even though I think Neil Patrick Harris is doing a great job, I loved Jim Carrey as Count Olaf a little more.  The comparison for me does stop after Aunt Josephine’s house, because that is where the movie stops. As the show went on from there I enjoyed it a lot more. I was no longer thinking well the movie did this. I was thinking how much I was enjoying it. I am so excited for future seasons and can’t wait to see which way they decide to take the show. 

The first season is on Netflix if you dare to watch. Please like and comment below if you enjoyed this post or about your thoughts on the show. And on that note, The Show Must Go On.

Luke Cage

luke-cage

What up! What up! What up!

I finally watched Luke Cage! I know it took me long enough but I did it. This show was so awesome. I love the Marvel movies so I was excited to see this new super hero. I have seen a lot of articles about this show before and that is a main reason why I decided to watch it. What is Luke Cage about you ask? It is about a man protecting the people of Harlem and even though he has supernatural powers it is not easy. 

One thing that is cool about this show is the message it brings. Luke Cage doesn’t wear a mask because he doesn’t feel like he needs one. He doesn’t feel like he has to hide his identity or abilities. His superhero suit is a hooded  sweatshirt and that is it. He doesn’t need anything flashy or a disguise just a man in a hoodie. This is only the beginning of the messages that the show brings. I urge you to read some of the articles written about this show. Let me know in the comments what you think. 

If you have liked the other Marvel movies, then you will probably enjoy this one also. It is filled with action and drama which is the perfect mix for any superhero show. My final comments on this show is that it always kept me on my toes and made me come back for more. The first season is on Netflix, so check it out.

Luther

luther

I always wanted to watch this show because I heard it was really good and I agree with everyone that told me so. I love Idris Elba as an actor so I knew that I had to give this show a try. If you have never heard of Luther, it is a detective show but it is definitely on more of a darker side. It takes place in the East side of London. ( fun fact: I was in London while watching this) It was so cool to be able to revisit some of the places that were in the show. Any way back to business, for anyone who is into detective shows it is a really good one to give a try. I love how it isn’t just about a guy solving cases. This is a detective that wants the bad guys to be punished for what they have done and sometimes he might do the wrong thing for the right reason. Its a great show,give it a try, and check out the rest of my posts if you like this one.

The Crown

the-crown

I haven’t posted in a while but I will get better at posting more often. I have recently been traveling the world and was kind of distracted but I’m officially back so lets get down to business. While in London I decided, let me watch The Crown. I was so glad that I made that decision. I absolutely love this show. I think the casting was done well and it shows you apart of being royal that you don’t really think about. I never really knew to much about the royal family, but realizing what they must have to go through is crazy. The main point of this show is about the crown obviously, but how far would you go to protect the crown. The queen has to decide what should happen when it comes to family, her marriage and her people. Every time she needs to make a decision will she go in favor of the crown? It is very interesting and definitely keeps my attention. If you like shows like Reign then you will probably enjoy this show. I say give it shot and tell me what you think.
