Judah – BoJack Horseman – sings for Princess Carolyn

Guess who’s hooked on the new season of BoJack Horseman? While I think I’ll make a later post discussing the views of “toxic masculinity” and “Hollywood media accusing established actors for past transgressions” another time, there was a scene in the new season which absolutely blew me out of the water. One of my role-models (Lovely Efficient Judah) sings for one of my other role-models (super-efficient and ambitious Princess Carolyn) and confesses his feelings in a very unconventional manner. I was 🙂 and could not believe it was happening. They should make an amazing match.

Here I am rooting for the love of two fictional characters again!

Spinning Out – Or the story of a bi-polar skater

♪ Everything I want ♪
♪ Comes at a cost ♪
♪ And I want ♪
♪ It all ♪

While I was watching this Netflix drama about a skater trying to overcome her previous trauma and trying to make it to the Olympics doing pair skating, all I could think of was “don’t stick your dick in crazy”. Continue reading “Spinning Out – Or the story of a bi-polar skater”

Marianne – The French Horror Flick that brought exorcisms back on the table

OMG! I binge watched “Marianne” today and it was freaking scary. Perfect for the upcoming Halloween! I’m talking really scary due to the well used horror tropes:

  • elderly possessed woman (like The Skeleton Key)
  • Creepy children
  • Scary dreams
  • Demons!
  • Falling teeth
  • one hanged woman
  • Slowly walking bloodied bodies

I think what really got me was the scenes with the old woman (Marianne) who is definitely crazy but the way she takes out her own tooth with a knife and then saws off a hand using a kitchen knife was out of this world. Add in some people walking up from the waves – and you have yourself a good horror.

Love, Death and Robots and how it took the Internet by storm. Digital Storm!

I am in absolute awe what this show has accomplished. Each episode (varying from 8 to 18min in length) is a piece of art with a lovely story and a twist that leaves you hanging. The humour is crude, the penises are on display and the jokes keep rolling. From existential meditation of humankind as seen from the unfeeling (or very feeling) eyes of a robot, “Say Terrabyte!” and jump in!

Plot:

a Crown Prince in medieval South Korea must fight to save his people from a zombie infection rampaging throughout the land while he evades political enemies’ schemes to take his right to the throne.

Kingdom captured our imaginations from the moment we read the script with its visual feast of historical drama blended with supernatural fantasy,” said Netflix’s VP of international originals, Erik Barmack, when the project was announced. “We are incredibly honored by this rare opportunity of pairing two premier creative minds in Korea – film director Kim Seong-hun and television writer Kim Eun-hee.”.

Russian Dolls and Multiple Timelines Explained

I think I finally figured out a little something about how this world works.

Since it was Groundhog day yesterday, I decided to give Netflix’s new show, “Russian Doll”, a go. I was pulled in an I must say I really liked it! It’s like a mix-up of Rick and Morty and Happy Death Day, and, of course, Groundhog day. But instead of the main character trying to stabilize timelines or trying to figure out who the killer is, the plot of this series is about dealing with trauma, unresolved issues and hangups and surviving a terrible breakup.

WTF Did I just watch? Sense8 in the mix

I love a good show and when Neflix baited Sense8 in front of my eyes for two months, I finally gave in. With 8.4 on IMDB, I was expecting a knock-out show but instead, what I got was liberal agenda. Shoved in my face. Every freaking episode.

I was already sick of it by episode 2 but I dragged on and with every slow-paced episode, with every slow-motion video and with every soap-opera mini-plot, I grew angrier and angrier. WTF is wrong with people who like this show?

It reminds me of The X-Files, but better. It is fantasy and science fiction, but not far-fetched. Not even for a single moment. It feels alive, real and very, very exciting and suspenseful. electrobird

I think we weren’t watching the same show! Continue reading “WTF Did I just watch? Sense8 in the mix”

The Haunting of Hill House or a series more about mental illness than about ghosts

This is our forever house. It always was. Nothing bad will ever touch them ever again.
Nothing good will, either.

I saw something new on my Netflix list – a series with a title similar to one of the most horrifying horror books I’ve ever laid my hands on. And since it’s October and Spookfest is on, I decided to give it a try. I was instantly hooked. I binge-watched the show in a day and a bit and I wanted to see if anyone else noted the mix of reality, visions and hallucinations in the series. The story is told from the POV of everyone involved and as opposed to the book, the series starts with the death of one of the family and then flashes back to the events leading up to that point.

Maniac * Netflix showed a good show!

Well, this September has been fun! Binge-watched BoJack Horseman Season 5, all of Ozark Season 2 and found a new show to watch this weekend. Maniac!

So far, little is known about the heinous comedy drama miniseries “Maniac”, whose ten episodes will be released on Netflix on September 21st.

Oscar winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”, “Birdman”) acts along side a very thin looking  Jonah Hill (“Superbad”, “Wolf of Wall Street”) in a sci-fi adventure spanning multiple movie genders – from trashy white people to game night to Tolkien on acid. I wasn’t sure I was loving it until I pressed next and next and exclaiming OMG, it’s over! I want more!

BoJack Horseman Season 5 Out Today

“BoJack Horseman” has recently been announced as returning to Netflix with a new season. I loved this funny yet heart-wrenching show that lights the depression, addiction and superficiality in Hollywood (and truly everywhere).

This may be the saddest animated comedy in TV history, and with each new batch of episodes it delves deeper into its unique brand of anthropomorphic misery: dark, witty, culturally literate — but for its loyal fans, thoroughly enjoyable. Continue reading “BoJack Horseman Season 5 Out Today”
