Emily in Paris Season One Thoughts

It’s been a while since I really sat down to watch a show. Don’t get me wrong, I have definitely been watching TV recently but haven’t really taken the time to get into something new.

So here we are, Emily in Paris. Not the greatest name for a TV show but it sums it up pretty well.

Basically, Emily is working in a marketing firm in America, but ends up getting the opportunity to go to Paris in place of her boss who found out she was pregnant. The only problem is that Emily does not know French. Sounds like the beginnings of a cute comedy right?

It’s not totally wrong. I mean if you want something light and happy to watch, then this is your show. Plus, it’s only half an hour per episode so it’s a nice quick watch too. Which is nice relief from the usual 40 minute heavy drama shows I usually watch.

But after all ten episodes I’m still not sure how to feel about it? I didn’t instantly fall in love with it like I thought I might, it had the potential to be something I really enjoyed but something was pulling me out of it.

I think part of it was just the second hand embarrassment I felt for Emily because she didn’t speak French. And I know that’s the point but I don’t know, it bothered me lol. And I know she was trying to learn, but let’s be real, she probably will never learn French during the show running. Which is fine, but I don’t know, her half-failed attempts at the language were just annoying.

Then there’s the fact that she basically carries all the work of the advertising firm she works at. I mean sure it would be boring if she didn’t get good things to work on, but why is everyone there just not good at their job?

I also couldn’t figure out the purpose of Julien and Luc, I mean sure they were just mean co-workers and stuff in the beginning but by the end they were kind of friends with Emily? But really just serve as people who pretend to work along with the other couple of extras that are around. I don’t know if I like them or not, I was waiting for one of them to step up to be the work BFF we so know that Emily needs but no… Which just makes them seem kind of pointless to be honest.

Also Sylvie tries to be the boss bitch character which I often enjoy, but she is far from the Miranda Priestly I was half expecting her to be. There’s just something off about her which means I don’t like her very much. I don’t even know what it is, I just feel like she doesn’t have much personality besides hating on Emily and having an affair.

As for Emily herself, she’s just okay. I mean she always wears cute outfits and yes, is apparently amazing at her job. I’m not sure what else will come from her next though as she tries to get herself out of this weird love square thing she created for herself. I don’t imagine it’s going to go gracefully but we’ll see.

One thing I will say though is that they did a good job of literally not having any average looking men in Paris. Like honestly, that just doesn’t happen in real life, but that’s how these shows go lol. Everyone is always looking amazing and dressed to the nines, even if they aren’t supposed to afford it. I mean I know they aren’t making out Emily as poor, but I’m amazed at all the Chanel she can afford, plus her BFF Mindy wears so many fancy things and she makes even less money as a nanny.

Oh and another random point is that it’s so wild to see so many people smoking again on TV. I suppose I haven’t seen that much smoking indoors or out since Sex and the City lol. But it’s weird after not seeing it for so long. That being said, I think it would be amazing if we ever saw Sylvie finish a cigarette, talk about wasteful sis.

Overall though, it is a cute show. Something nice if you aren’t looking for something serious. But I did find myself wanting to like it but there was something off about it, not sure exactly what it is but it might just be a combination of everything I mentioned above and some other things too.

I’m not really sure where the next season will lead, apart from Emily trying to deal with the two love interests she has and also working with a man who’s wife basically said “yes sleep with my husband”. I mean definitely sounds like the kind of gossip and drama I love in life, but I guess it’s just not quite dramatic enough haha.

Oh well, it was still something nice to watch. I’m not sure when we will get another season but I’ll look forward to seeing what is next.

In the meantime, I will go back to making my way through the Originals. And probably watching Gossip Girl again because no one really does Paris like Blair Waldorf. And she even knows French.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 Thoughts

It’s been just over a year since the last time I posted about Grey’s Anatomy. Wild.

I originally did want to watch this season in real time as it was airing but that wasn’t really working out for me so I ended up just watching it on NowTV. So for old time’s sake I thought I would write up another big summary of my thought’s on season 16 of Grey’s Anatomy.

So let’s dive into it shall we:

  • It has been basically a year and I don’t really remember what happened haha
  • Oh the fog! Jackson and Maggie being annoying, right.
  • Well Jackson is okay, I kind of thought he was going to leave but he is staying
  • Meredith is only getting community service for what she did? I mean I saw this on Reddit when the season began but wtf. She always gets off lightly with these things…
  • Jo went to the treatment centre to get help, I remember this, I hope it goes well
  • Side note: I know Alex leaves this season and I am not impressed, he was about to start his good life with Jo and now this 😦 Not a fan
  • Tom coming to the hospital and seeing Teddy had her baby and knowing she got back together with Owen hurts me. He is a good guy and does not deserve this kind of treatment
  • Amelia is pregnant. Interesting
  • Of course people at community service would find out Meredith was a doctor and she be helping everyone. We love that
  • Alex and Richard working in that crap hospital lol fun times
  • Owen really just shocked Tom’s crotch with those paddles I am crying hahaha
  • Wow we love Alex poaching everyone, like Owen has jumped ship lol
  • Of course the website was going to publish every bad thing Meredith said, that’s smart. Her mistake was being naive and trusting them. I’m sure Grey Sloan will find a way out, they usually do
  • Meredith doing jail time lol she needed to spend some time there I think it’s good to see her knocked down a peg
  • Alex’s hospital under a burial ground this is crazy
  • We love seeing Jo’s progress she has come so far from when she went away to get help. So proud of her
  • Schmitt on halloween helping that kid with his costume is adorable. He wanted to be a sunflower. My heart.
  • Zola doesn’t wanna forget Derek and I’m crying because WE MISS YOU MCDREAMY
  • Meredith was never going to lose her medical license – what kind of show would this be if THE MEREDITH GREY of GREY SLOAN MEMORIAL in GREY’S ANATOMY lost her medical license? But damn I cried watching everyone show up for her
  • Also wow of course the doctor that killed Derek would be there, it’s still no “Penny killed my husband” drama but still
  • I actually am kind of excited that Amelia is going to be a parent, I think her and Link will have a fun time with that lol
  • MCWIDOW IM CRYING
  • Ugh they really giving Amelia a who’s your baby daddy storyline?
  • OMG A CAR THROUGH JOE’S – it’s been a while since something super dramatic happened I guess
  • Bailey had a miscarriage 😦 oh no poor Bailey
  • Maggie is being sued for her cousin’s death. Yikes. Thought we’d seen enough of court rooms for now
  • Schmitt having a broken heart I cannot. Why he is like the cutest character
  • This whole Owen proposing to Teddy thing I feel came out of nowhere like why was everyone pushing him to propose? Yes they have kids together and everything but like…idk give them time
  • Also love that they got engaged for five minutes and Teddy already lost her engagement ring lol
  • I really hope Amelia’s baby is Link’s because I need them to work it out
  • Ugh I hate that Alex is MIA and I already know they write him out terribly but the fact they gave him a hospital to run and then he just disappears is terrible
  • Also Catherine buying the hospital Richard works at to get revenge is such a power move. What a queen lol though I’m sad that her and Richard aren’t going to last :/ I thought it would work
  • I feel bad that Tom is always being made out to be the bad guy. Like sure it’s great for Mer and the gang to stand up for better treatment but Tom is a nice guy when he wants to be
  • So is DeLuca just randomly spiraling now with this random nod to his dad? This is a weak storyline, even when his dad came by the first time I thought it was a bit shit…
  • Oh so the DeLuca thing is just to give Meredith a reason to get with the other doctor guy…why can’t she just get with him anyway lol
  • Wow Nico be pulling some manipulative moves over here with Levi. I only want good things for Levi so that gotta stop
  • Oh so Teddy suspects Amelia’s baby might be Owen’s and immediately runs to Tom. That’s shitty because Tom deserves more than to be second best
  • Wow so they are finally addressing Alex being gone and IT IS THE WORST
  • I remember reading about him leaving and how terrible it was with the letters but actually watching it was so much worse like I’m so angry about this whole thing
  • Like if he was gonna leave why could they have not written it in better like before he started at the other hospital and before he got married to Jo?
  • Plus of all the things to run off with Izzie because she had his babies like I hate it so much they tried so hard to make it okay but like to me it will never be. Jo does not deserve this and neither does anyone like I think I would rather he have been killed off honestly
  • There’s just so much issue I have with this
  • In other news we Stan bailey for taking that kid in under her wing so he can go to college and live his best life
  • Okay so DeLuca is a bit extreme and a little crazy but he was right about that woman and the human trafficking, I guess it’s sad that no one believed him…
  • So Nico and Levi are over and Levi is gonna move in with Jo – I think they will be cute roommates
  • Tom is doing something shady by taking money from that rocket guy – I wonder when that will go wrong…because there’s no way that doesn’t go south
  • Wow something bad is happening with Richard?! Nooooo I can’t have this. Honestly this show is putting me THROUGH it this season, after being so angry about Alex and so confused about DeLuca and heartbroken over Richard. I hate them for all these emotions.
  • Also who is that guy Maggie was talking to at the conference and do we love them or no? I think it’s a bit wild and too soon for them to really jump into something but I guess it would be nice to have her have something
  • Oh and Teddy was in a relationship with a woman? I mean I am all for having LGBT+ relationships and I think we need more of them but I just didn’t see it coming. Sad that we didn’t see more of that though.
  • So Richard was acting all crazy because of a rotting hip replacement? That’s wild and I love/hate they resolved it so quickly. I mean it’s great that Richard is going to be fine and all but also I hate that it wasn’t a very long issue, like sometimes I like the mystery to be drawn out…
  • I feel sad that Richard isn’t willing to give Catherine another chance though…
  • Okay so I know everyone hates Owen (at least everyone on the Grey’s subreddit) but I think it is so brutal making him listen to that voicemail of Teddy and Tom. That being said – how in the hell did she accidentally call him and at that specific moment, like you don’t go into Tom’s office about to call your fiance and then end up having sex with Tom…like you just don’t lol

So those were my thoughts on season 16 of Grey’s Anatomy. I am still very angry about how they decided to do Alex’s departure. I also think it’s horrible how they kind of just had one episode about it and he’s never really mentioned again as if it was nothing, but I suppose that’s how we do things in Grey’s after someone moves away. I mean can you believe Jackson has a child with April? You wouldn’t even know now lol.

But anyway, I am wondering where we go from here, I wonder how long we can keep going at this rate, I mean who knows how long it will be before another major character pulls out? I mean I know if Bailey and Richard leave it’s over. As much as I love some of the newer characters I just don’t see it without them.

Obviously Meredith will always be around, I’m pretty sure I saw a thing that said as long as Ellen Pompeo was on board with it they would continue to make Grey’s but honestly, how long can she continue to go on if everyone really does leave her for good? I mean she’ll always have a support system because she is Meredith Grey but like…how long can it really go on?

I mean I’ll still be along for the ride for sure, but I guess we just see what happens. Maybe in season 17 they can finally get Meredith and the new doctor guy together – I still haven’t picked up his name after all this time but we’ll see if they even keep him around.

I don’t really have predictions for what could happen because let’s face it, with Grey’s you never know for sure. Plus with the pandemic and everything, who knows when the show will even be back. I hope we don’t have to wait too long, but I guess in the mean time it’s back to trying to find something new to watch.

One Tree Hill Season 8 Thoughts

Finally made it through season 8! I thought I was never going to get through to be honest. The whole Clay and Quinn out of body thing is not my favourite so I kind of stopped watching for a while after the first few episodes.

Obviously I needed to know if they died or not after the cliffhanger last season, but I felt like they dragged out the whole out of body thing. I don’t know what it is about those episodes but I really don’t like them, even when they did them in the early seasons with Lucas I just thought they were a bit dumb.

Anyway yeah once we got past that I did quite enjoy this season. So here are my thoughts about the goings on in season 8 of One Tree Hill:

  • Brooke got arrested for fraud?! Her mom and Millie lied about Clothes Over Bros profits to launch the men’s line?! This is wild :/ I can’t believe after everything Brooke might lose her company
  • Haley is writing to Lucas, I guess this is better than calling her mom’s old phone but will she actually get letters back lol
  • Mia is staying? And I guess they only had her break up with Chase so we could have some kind of love triangle between him, Alex and her. Ugh. I don’t know if I like this
  • Jamie asking about sex is hilarious plus he GOOGLED omg wild
  • They had me thinking that Clay and Quinn were alive and that Clay just had a dream where they were shot wow. They had me for a second. But can someone please discover them. Though because of the intro and seeing them both as main cast it’s obvious they survive, way to go with the spoilers lads
  • The weird Clay and Quinn out of body thing is not my fave, like I thought it was stupid when it happened to Lucas and it is still dumb
  • Millie and Mouth awkwardly talking after they slept together omg this is wild
  • I can’t believe that Brooke is going to bankrupt herself to pay back investors – what a queen, I mean I still can’t believe she has to do it but here we are
  • Also her mother going to jail was probably one of the best things she could have ever done for her
  • So Alex and Chase are still a thing and I think it’s weird but okay
  • Nathan is quitting basketball, interesting and also kind of crazy considering all of last season was him being mad that Clay wasn’t going to get him a deal for next season and now he’s just like well I’m out lol
  • I know Nathan is scrubbing away at the carpet where Clay and Quinn got shot but in all honesty I think I would just replace the carpet…
  • Even I knew that when Julien’s mum came into town she would wanna control the wedding, the excuse “I’m paying for it” is totally gonna be the thing
  • Okay so Alex bailed, I was wondering how long it would take for that to happen
  • Can Millicent and Mouth just get back together because I thought they would have by now, come on Mouth you know you want to…
  • I am not a fan of the intro song changing every five minutes, what is that about
  • Trying to figure out if we love or hate Julien’s mom, I still don’t really know but we love her inviting Brooke’s mom to Thanksgiving
  • The Thanksgiving episode was cute – I love seeing everyone together, minus Chase…though Alex and Mia fighting was a real riot
  • I thought the stalker thing with Quinn would have lasted longer, I mean I had a feeling something was up with her when she came back from her trip – but oh well. At least it’s done.
  • Also love that of all people she could have went to about murder she chose Dan Scott, I totally forgot about him and wondered where he went but I guess I no longer wonder
  • That storm episode really had me going like I was so emotional and worried about everyone’s lives. Mostly Jamie’s tbh because it is so heartbreaking for them to kill off a kid. But he was fine and all was well
  • That being said the whole Julien being a hero thing was a bit wild, I don’t know if I really like him as a character tbh. I don’t know what it is but I just don’t take him seriously or something, I was kind of hoping he would be gone by now but I guess he and Brooke are endgame
  • Is Alex staying or going? Is Mia staying or going? Like I just want to know if they will be regular cast or not because I do like them but if they only around for Chase…one of them will go right?
  • OR all three of them go after Chase finally chooses one or something I don’t know the storyline is kind of tired
  • Why did Brooke and Julien’s wedding seem so boring? I feel like I was expecting so much more
  • That superhero episode was just so cringey, glad I am past that…
  • I knew things were too good to be true with Brooke and the baby – I’m sad she isn’t going to get the baby but I hope that things work out for her and Julien
  • And by that I mean please don’t move to New York guys – I mean Brooke was so not about moving to LA for Julien and insisted they stay in Tree Hill and now she’s like “nah let’s go to New York”? Flaky
  • Okay so Kellerman’s son was the one to drive Brooke and Jamie off a bridge – yikes. I mean it was kind of obvious it was him and not Kellerman like he definitely doesn’t seem like the type to get drunk and drive someone off a bridge, but his son? Absolutely
  • I think it’s really random they decided to make Alex a singer, I don’t know why but like it bothers me – not everyone who is an actress should sing lads
  • Also what happened to Mia?
  • They can’t destroy the River Court – I feel like they will fight for it to be saved and win because that’s how things happen around here
  • Ha I knew they weren’t gonna take the River Court
  • It’s weird but kind of nice they reverted Clothes over Bros back to Karen’s cafe
  • Also love how Haley went from being a teacher for 5 minutes, to doing music for 5 minutes and now runs a cafe
  • I know it sounds mean but I wish Brooke hadn’t got magically pregnant and with twins no less. I think it would have been nice if they had managed to adopt because adoption storylines are hardly ever a thing and it’s important
  • Jamie going through that little breakup with Madison probably broke me apart than most of the relationships on this show
  • Kind of surprised Chase took Alex back. I think that’s a bit meh but proud of him for finally becoming a pilot
  • I’m glad we are still going to have Mouth and Millie in the morning. They so cute together

And that is everything in season 8 of One Tree Hill.

I got the feeling that they thought this was going to be the last season – and I’ve definitely said this before about the show but it’s kind of annoying when they wrap everything up real well like it’s the end and everyone is all happy, but then because there’s another season something has to go wrong so we have the drama.

But again, once more if you just stop watching here it would probably be fine, I can’t see them having anything super crazy in the last season especially if they want to keep this whole happy ending thing going.

Anyway, I’m not sure what is next for everyone to be honest, I mean Brooke and Julien are new parents who are living their best lives, the Scott family is thriving as always and everyone else is just there? I mean I guess maybe I would guess Quinn and Clay get married – considering they randomly just started talking about how Quinn and Clay should get engaged in that one episode.

I think I read Lucas comes back or something in the last season so I mean I guess that would be nice to see him after all this time. So that will be nice to look forward to.

Aside from that I wonder where things will end for good considering they seem to be so good at magically having everything wrap up in the end since they’ve done it 4 times or so already…but I bet I’ll still be a sucker for the ending because that’s the kind of person I am.

So I’ll be back soon with my final blog post on One Tree Hill!

One Tree Hill Season 5 Thoughts

Feels like it’s been forever since I talked about One Tree Hill.

This was a shorter season than others but that doesn’t mean there was any less drama. Last we saw everyone they had just graduated from high school and the future was looking bright.

Now we jump into season five where there was a huge time jump and I wasn’t expecting it:

  • A time jump?! Seriously? I mean I was wondering how they were going to focus on everyone as they went their separate ways. They could have pulled a Gossip Girl where they all started at college and then just stopped going lol
  • That being said they were all looking way too old to play high school students so at least now they can play proper adults because they are
  • So Haley is a teacher and Nathan doesn’t want his son to play basketball – drama, also Nathan does not look good with long hair and a beard
  • Oh my God Brooke really went full boss bitch with Clothes Over Bros, I never saw it coming because the fashion thing came on so rapidly but yay!
  • Peyton is a lowly assistant in LA who is being told to “drop buttons” to be allowed in meetings – she so does not belong there
  • Nathan was in an accident and his dream is crushed…poor guy he worked so hard
  • Lucas as kind of a washed up writer and basketball coach? Never saw that he was destined for greatness and that is not it
  • I figured Lucas was sleeping with his editor…I don’t like it but that’s because we don’t know the story but it seems so cliche
  • We love a Tree Hill reunion – I knew Brooke and Peyton couldn’t stay away
  • Yasss Nathan fighting back
  • Omg I actually do hate Lucas dating his editor like Peyton doesnt show up at his book signing and he just decides to date her. That’s so not cute
  • Also this new jock guy is the worst like the actor I only know from being the nice cheerleader guy from Hellcats. I don’t like this version of him haha
  • I’m sad Mouth isn’t living his sports announcer best life
  • Also what happened to Karen’s cafe?! Where even is Karen and her baby?
  • Like I guess it’s cool Brooke is taking the cafe but like what happened to Karen tho
  • Lol I knew the nanny was going to be trouble it was only a matter of time
  • Also yasss Nathan getting his life together but if he gets with the nanny he is even more of a cliche then I thought
  • Okay so we found out Lucas is only with his editor because he thought Peyton didnt come to his book signing. That is lame and I don’t accept it
  • I think Haley and Nathan’s kid is probably one of the best characters not gonna lie
  • I never thought Mouth would end up sleeping with his boss to keep his job and yet here we are. Poor guy…he better sort it out soon
  • Lucas is a freaking idiot for choosing to ask Lindsey to marry him lol are we all gonna pretend that’s a good idea
  • Oh my God Rachel is a drug addict? I thought we had seen the last of her
  • Awww Tim! Cute memories
  • Wow of course the nanny was in the shower and Haley walked in…she better change her mind about this divorce
  • At the same time Nathan should have said something sooner
  • Mouth and Millicent are super cute. Also can’t believe Mouth’s boss was literally sleeping with everyone. What a power move lol
  • Glad Peyton and Lindsey got to air their drama
  • Hahaha Chase showing up to date Peyton. What are the odds? Love seeing everyone again
  • Tim and Bevan got married?! Wild. What a small world lol
  • So Lucas and Lindsey’s wedding arrives and she comes to her senses and says no, we were all expecting their marriage to fall apart right? So at least it happened before they were officially married
  • Brooke wants to have a baby? Interesting
  • Oh Karen got back with Andy? Seems kind of lame, it would have been okay if she stayed a single mom with a child. She did it for Lucas ya know – strong independent woman and all that
  • I knew the babysitter was going to kidnap Jamie, it was only going to be a matter of time
  • And Dan showing up, isn’t this turning out to be quite the wild episode
  • I kind of figured Dan would have been following the nanny, I half expected the police to get him though – still wild
  • Brooke actually got a baby! I was half expecting her to hate being a mother but she got it going for her. So yay! Sad her boy toy couldn’t hang around though
  • Yas Nathan and Haley working things out I mean I don’t think divorce would have been right for them
  • Lucas still choosing Lindsey over Peyton…this is something I didn’t expect. I thought maybe he would have come to his senses but okay
  • Dan saying he has 6 months to live sounds pretty fake… I mean after everything that has been going on but we see what the tea is
  • So Dan really is going to die…but part of me wonders if he gets that heart transplant because he somehow keeps surviving no matter what
  • I feel so bad for Jamie when he saw his card in the trash, it was just so sad – HE IS SO LITTLE. I know why they are keeping Dan from him but it hurts to see him always being sad about it
  • Lucas going mad after her found out Lindsey was seeing someone else…yikes. I feel like I’ve always underestimated how he felt about her but I guess he really does care
  • Is Brooke gonna get with that surgeon because something seems to be brewing there or maybe I’m just wanting good things for her
  • Also Millicent and Mouth are the cutest ones out there, can’t even deny
  • Deb sleeping with Skills is actually hilarious and it still stands that Deb can be one of the best characters when she wants to be
  • Mouth quitting his job like a boss – showing them what he is going to be missing
  • Where is Lucas going? I need him to sort his life out also as if Brooke is in the running to be his Vegas bride? I don’t see it.
  • Talk about your karma, Dan getting hit by a car right outside the hospital…

So this is where we end things for another season.

I gotta say I will not be surprised if Dan somehow survives because like I’ve said that’s just how things are for him, though I feel like it is definitely time to close his storyline.

Lucas has been annoying me this season because he needs to choose a woman. I wish he would just get back with Peyton because Lindsey was nice and all but she doesn’t seem like the kind to be sticking around. I like that he was still there to be a friend to Brooke but that seemed to be the only thing he was good at this season.

I am loving seeing Nathan taking his life back and also being a good father, we love a character who has growth. It will be interesting to see what things will be like when he returns to basketball.

And with Mouth going to take a new job, is this him out for good? Like I said before I enjoy Mouth’s character and I will be sad if this is the last we see of him.

But we see what is next for everyone. I honestly couldn’t tell you where we go from here, this show has surprised me a lot so I’m just in to enjoy the ride. And as always I will be back with another season recap/thoughts post just like this one real soon.

Love Is Blind Season One Thoughts

So I just finished watching Love Is Blind. I began watching it with my friend Jasmine while I was in London last weekend and I needed to know how things ended up so I continued to watch.

As expected, it is kind of a trashy reality show. I don’t usually watch these and try to avoid them, like I don’t watch other dating shows like Love Island because everyone talks about them so much. But this one sounded kind of bizarre and so I had to watch.

I’m going to share my general thoughts on the show and then talk about the couples who we followed up until the wedding days.

First of all, I like the idea behind the show. I mean falling in love without actually seeing someone, it’s interesting. But to go the full way and decide you want to marry a person without even knowing what they look like is kind of crazy. Especially when you are making the decision within 10 days. Now I know that they spent way more time with each other than what we saw but it’s still wild. Proposing to someone through a wall lol the height of romance.

Second, I guess it’s not a bad set up. I mean Netflix pays for your wedding, a flat to live in up until the wedding and a whole ass trip to Mexico. Sign me up lol. I mean we knew Netflix had money because of all the shows they produce in general, but this one really got me.

That being said, everyone’s wedding was in that one venue, minus Mark and Jessica’s, and I would feel a bit cheated if we all got married in the same place…plus I think it’s also weird to have your bachelor and bachelorette parties together. Normally these are things you just do with close friends and family, but then I suppose it makes sense budget wise if everyone does it all together and is easier to film.

And finally, what happens to everyone else in the pods? I read that some other couples got engaged but they didn’t have the budget to accommodate them too, but it’s still weird how we never hear from them again. I mean we saw some of them featured and it’s just weird we don’t know what happened to them. I presumed a lot of them didn’t match with someone, but I think we at least deserve to know what happened to LC because she was a big part of that Barnett love triangle situation.

So now those general things are out of the way let’s talk about our couples!

Cameron and Lauren

These guys were basically perfect. I didn’t believe it at first when I saw all the memes about them but as the show went on I could see it. I think they should be the ‘poster couple’ for this show. You know, the success story they brag about to get people to sign up because things went so well for them.

Sure they had their ups and downs as they integrated into the real world, and hesitated about getting married but things seem to be going super well for them now. They are super cute and even have a dog together. The perfect couple.

If you didn’t walk away from the show shipping them then I don’t know what you are doing, they are great.

Diamond and Carlton

Their situation could have been handled a lot better. I think Carlton should have been up front about his past in the beginning.

I can understand why Diamond was hesitant about their relationship after that because it seemed like Carlton purposely kept something from her. And I think things would have ended better if they could have talked about the situation.

Sadly, things did not work out they way and they left things on pretty hostile terms. It was good to see they had made amends by the reunion though. I also wasn’t expecting them both to get so much hate from the whole situation. I mean neither of them handled it the best but I guess they just keep learning from it.

I just don’t think that they deserved any hate from it in general, but I suppose people love to hate on other people because they can.

Kenny and Kelly

It was kind of obvious they weren’t going to get married. And not only because I spoiled it for myself by seeing something saying they mutually agreed not to get married.

I mean Kelly kept saying herself she wasn’t sure about the physical part of the relationship and they hadn’t had sex. I mean it’s totally fine not to rush into sex with your partner but it seemed like she was just avoiding it because she wasn’t attracted to Kenny in that way.

I’m also surprised that they were able to go through with filming the wedding and everything even though they both knew they weren’t going to go through with it. It’s wild, and I know it was probably for the drama but it just doesn’t seem right at the same time.

I think if the physical connection had been there for them they would have made a really cute couple. Although it seems like Kenny is thriving in a new relationship according to the reunion so we love that.

Amber and Barnett

I wasn’t sure about this one, I guess just because Barnett seemed super unsure about any of his relationships in the beginning.

That being said I actually think they do make a good couple, they compliment each other well. Though Barnett is super laid back and Amber is super not haha.

It’s interesting because I definitely thought that Amber’s debt was going to be a big issue between them, especially since she didn’t even have a stable job. I think it was kind of sneaky she kept that from him in the pods but I guess they worked it out.

Also at the alter I wasn’t sure if Barnett was going to say yes, he seems super easygoing and like just goes with the flow but marriage is a big thing just to ‘go with the flow’ with haha. But they seem like they happy so that’s cool.

Jessica and Mark

This was a hot mess. Mainly because from the start Jessica was doubting the whole relationship. I mean she should not have said yes from the beginning. It looked like she just didn’t want to be alone after being rejected by Barnett and so settled on Mark.

Then, when they were out of the pods and Jessica saw Barnett in person, you could tell she wasn’t happy. Like I get that Mark is not her type physically and Barnett is but she just did not handle her feelings well. Getting drunk and falling all over Barnett while being engaged to someone else is not a good look sweetie.

I think when Jessica watched herself back she also knew this. I just think it is wild it happened to begin with.

All the while, I felt bad for Mark who really wanted the whole thing to work. I mean I know he said there’s no hard feelings and they were open and honest with each other the whole time but it was still very messy.

I knew when it came to their wedding that Jessica was going to say no. I’m glad she made that decision because she was never going to be fully happy with Mark. Especially when she made every excuse not to be with him and even admitted she wasn’t there with the physical connection. I just think they should have called it quits earlier.

Giannina and Damian

I almost forgot but I knew I was missing a couple!

I was for sure thinking these two would have called it off sooner than they did. I mean it kind of seemed like they were constantly fighting about nothing. It felt like Giannina was constantly testing Damian in a kind of ‘if you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best’ kind of way. And it could have also been a lot of self-sabotage.

I give him props for being so sensible and level headed the whole time because it easily could have turned into them just yelling at each other all the time.

It’s also interesting that Giannina said yes at the wedding because I thought if anyone was going to say no it would have been her. But I think Damian thought rationally about it and he did the right thing.

Though now the two are back together and dating and I think it’s going well. I didn’t know if they would get back together after everything but I suppose something must be working for them. I guess now that they aren’t feeling the pressure to be married, it’s a lot easier for them to take things at their own pace. Plus they don’t have to live together anymore and maybe they need some space sometimes haha.

And so those were all my thoughts about Love is Blind. No one asked for them but I’m sharing them anyway because that’s what the internet is all about.

Will I continue to watch the show? I don’t know. I mean this season was kind of wild but at the same time not wild enough to keep me wanting to watch all the time. It’s kind of exhausting to watch five weddings in a row to be honest.

But I guess we see, I mean with the rate filming for things is being suspended right now who even knows when we will be getting a new season.

In the meantime I think it’s time for me to return to One Tree Hill. Might as well take advantage of being home before Animal Crossing comes out, not that I leave my house much in day to day life anyway haha.

One Tree Hill Season 4 Thoughts

Another season of One Tree Hill completed.

Again, I started watching this season immediately after I finished season 3 and then stopped for like a month and then I was off sick yesterday and binge-watched the second half of the season haha

So this was all about everyone’s senior year and it was a wild one:

  • So Rachel lied about being pregnant. Wow. Shocker. No wonder Cooper left town.
  • Brooke is actually pregnant? But is refusing to tell Lucas. Lol everyone is gonna find out before he does. Classic.
  • Peyton’s new “brother” is actually her stalker. I sensed it by how he asked for that picture on her wall. Just because he’s blonde doesn’t mean he can be trusted wtf this is creepy.
  • Dan is driven to insanity by his guilt over Keith. Is he gonna kill himself?
  • Meanwhile Deb is over here relapsed and has a gun to protect herself. Yikes
  • Nathan thinks he saw Keith in the river? Hmmm wonder what this brings
  • Oh my God Rachel doesn’t seriously think she can get with Nathan does she? Lol plz Nathan be a good guy and don’t cheat on your wife. Like I don’t think he ever would but I’m still sketchy about it…I need good things for Naley. Yep I’m finally accepting the ship
  • I am not even surprised Haley is pregnant, in an earlier episode she was wearing this shirt and her boobs looked clearly bigger lol I knew something was up
  • Thank God Lucas has caught onto this freak omg someone please save Peyton from this guy
  • Seeing Dan try to be a good guy is not gonna last but it’s cute he’s trying
  • Good to see Rachel backing off now she knows Haley is pregnant – she’s not a total bitch
  • Speaking of which can someone control Deb? She’s annoying af when she’s back on pills
  • Brooke and that teacher guy for real? I expected him to be sensible
  • Okay well the teacher thing didn’t last long and seemed like a really terrible throwaway plot and an excuse for Brooke to try again with Lucas? Not a fan
  • Mouth and Gigi are cute! I hope this continues, I also hope he warms up to her
  • Nathan was way too niave to trust those guys and take their money. It was predictable for them to not back off after they said they would. I wonder how he will get out of this since even Dan doesn’t seem to be able to stop them lol
  • Also what is the deal with Dan? Like sure he being nice to Karen and all but is it genuine? I don’t need her getting hurt again after Keith and stuff. So she better be safe
  • It was nice of him to get Tric back though
  • I wonder what’s next for Deb and her druggie ways, she spiralled fast with the faking prescription thing…
  • Also what is going on with Rachel? Are you trying to make us like her or hate her? I thought she was lying about the teacher thing too, and now she’s failing school so should we feel bad for her? Or is there some ulterior motive to her getting Haley to tutor her? I guess we wait and see but I don’t think she’s really changed much
  • Peyton’s actual brother seems nice, it’s a shame he couldn’t stick around for her
  • Also I see Nathan has forgotten about the Keith thing because he’s got other things going on. Lame. I thought it was gonna be a dramatic reveal or something that he didn’t die, even though that’s unlikely because everyone probably saw him shot dead…still it would’ve made a great plot twist
  • We love Karen dropping Deb off to rehab what a friend
  • I knew it was someone else’s turn to almost die – Haley :/ we knew Nathan and that guy was gonna be trouble…
  • Also Lucas almost dying again guys seriously this is so rude. I knew he should have taken his heart medication. Stupid boy
  • Love that Lucas suddenly has this whole thing with Keith when he almost dies and Keith is over here like “Dan killed me mate” as if Lucas had all this come to him in a dream while he was almost dead. Sure Jan
  • Deb really needs to get her life together. Like damn the whole suicide thing and everything…work the program sis
  • Alright seriously MOUTH DESERVES BETTER – Miss Clean Teen DOES NOT deserve him. Sleeping with him and running away. He does not deserve this
  • Peyton and Lucas are so cute its sickening
  • I’m glad Haley and her baby are okay we need good things for their family
  • Dan needs to learn his place is not as Keith’s replacement. Move on man
  • So turns out Rachel really is a good friend which is cute but I guess she’s a little late with it. Still I can appreciate she cares for Brooke
  • It was kind of awesome to see Haley bitch slap her though
  • Also love that Bevin turns around and is like “I’m not stupid I just let you divas have your way” what a queen
  • Plus I loved seeing Mouth, Nathan and Skillz do their stripper dance. Get it bois
  • BROOKE AND NATHAN HAD A SEX TAPE I AM SHOOK
  • Side note: the fact that Peyton ran to turn off the video also show she has a sex tape with Nathan? What a player
  • Of course Peyton’s creepy stalker comes back
  • And generally prom goes awry because why not?
  • I’m so glad that Brooke was there for Peyton, it shows Lucas is not the only one who can be a hero but also girl power
  • I love the road trip everyone took to save Mouth, he is loved and it’s cute. Sucks that Rachel just vanished but at least she was a good friend to Mouth and Brooke, although maybe not the best for Mouth after she just abandoned him to hit on other guys
  • Also interesting how fast the whole Clean Teen thing fell apart, even Chase that new guy isn’t a part of it anymore
  • I’m sad that Lucas is made out to be a crazy person and that Dan has won over Karen – this is not cute but also Lucas better not do anything stupid with that gun
  • Of course Lucas did something stupid he is acting kind of crazy
  • I am so proud of the man that Nathan is turning into, confessing to his mistakes with the point shaving and everything
  • I have to say it but I’m like so happy about the cute family that Haley and Nathan are turning out to have, though if this is the amount of drama they have in high school I can’t even imagine how after high school is going to go
  • I was waiting for Haley to go into labour at an inappropriate time and in the middle of her Valedictorian speech sounds about right lol
  • Wow they really needed some kind of trigger warning on the finale episode because of Dan’s suicide attempt. Like they had a whole warning about a school shooting and not this…yikes
  • Honestly, Dan’s whole demise was actually super sad, like he deserved to go to jail and turn himself in but like…I don’t know something about the suicide attempt and everything, it really hit deep
  • Also glad Karen is okay but that cheesy scene with Keith was terrible
  • I loved that Brooke and Rachel got to graduate in the end
  • Also Bevin not telling her parents Skillz was black and Skillz not telling his parents that Bevin was white is hilarious but we love that it worked out
  • I was feeling super sentimental with everyone at their last high school party honestly and like if the show was gonna end there it would have been a really good ending…

I gotta say this season was good one, and an enjoyable one. The last few episodes especially were wild but I love when there’s a lot of drama because why else watch the show?

Honestly everyone is super cute and like I said if the show ended there I think that would have been okay for me. Obviously it did not because we have five seasons to go but I wonder where we go from here?

My guess is that as amazing as Brooke and Chase are that’s not gonna be forever, I wonder if Lucas and Peyton will survive the long summer apart? And Haley and Nathan are stepping into parenthood which is definitely going to be a wild ride. It’ll be interesting to see how everyone copes.

I also really hope that as the show goes on that Mouth is still going to be a part of it because he is a big character to me, although he is not part of the main cast I enjoy him a lot so if they could keep him around I would definitely appreciate it.

But yeah, overall excited to see where we go from here now that everyone is done with high school. So you know I’m going to be getting straight to it, at least for the first few episodes and then I will leave it again for ages haha, but I am determined to get through this TV show.

One Tree Hill Season 3 Thoughts!

I feel like I always start binge watching a season of this show but I’ll get about halfway through and won’t watch any for ages and I feel like that happened here. I also do this thing where I’ll make loads of bullet points at the start of the season and I feel like it’s too many so by the time we get towards the end I’m barely making any at all. How do I balance this lol

Anyway, before we dive in let’s see how my predictions panned out:

First of all, I was wrong about Brooke, she was here the whole time haha Keith did come back but not even until the halfway through the season and then…well we know what happened to him this season and that wasn’t cute. There wasn’t really an official investigation into Dan, he just kind of went about it on his own. Lucas finally spilled about his HCM so good for him and finally, Haley and Nathan did find their way back together. I knew they would.

Now onto this season of One Tree Hill:

  • Lol of course Dan is alive. Evil don’t die bitches
  • 3 months later and Brooke comes back with bangs and Peyton also got a new hair style. There’s more ways to show a time jump lads – even Deb has curly hair now haha
  • Surprise surprise Dan is out for revenge
  • Haley and Brooke living together. Oh what fun 😛
  • Nathan at high flyers getting back in the game cute
  • Dan and Deb officially divorcing yay!
  • Brooke and Lucas being casual. We see how long it lasts because Lucas has a secret and I feel like it’s hooking up with Peyton because why not
  • But then he has another secret from that night when Dan almost died so hmmm…unless it’s both the same secret
  • So much for a mystery it was Lucas who started the fire hahaha
  • Oh Lucas saved Dan’s life? He wasn’t trying to kill him? Wild
  • Does Peyton’s birth mum actually have cancer? Sounds like a lie
  • Poor Mouth heartbroken over Erica – she doesn’t deserve you Mouth!
  • Also Haley getting bullied is something I never saw like for following her dreams? Stupid
  • I can’t believe Nathan wants a full on divorce. At least he’s waiting a year before its official
  • We love a good costume party
  • Wow Mouth and Peyton dancing to disco inferno is EVERYTHING
  • So Brooke is so jealous of that girl
  • Dan running for mayor and Deb doing all these crazy things to piss Dan off is my fave. Like always be this Deb it is the best
  • Of course Peyton’s biological mum lied about being able to draw. I know she was trying to spare Peyton’s memories of her other mum. But yeah…
  • So Chris is the one that kissed Haley at the costume party…interesting
  • Peyton has a podcast now?
  • Wow we love that Karen is running against Dan is mayor. Bring it on
  • Fantasy boy draft? Sounds like fun if boys at your school are literally Chad Michael Murray but that would have never worked at my school
  • I like Brooke too much to like Rachel at all haha
  • BROOKE SLEPT WITH CHRIS THAT IS SO GROSS
  • Yassss Peyton choosing Mouth that is cute
  • Nathan can be so cute with Haley sometimes I can’t deal
  • Peyton, Brooke and Haley getting arrested for stealing clothes hahaha
  • Of course Dan became mayor, I definitely thought Karen had a chance though
  • Also I don’t remember Brooke having a history for wanting to work in fashion so this whole fashion thing kind of came out of nowhere, not that I am complaining
  • I guess this is the last we will see of Deb? I will miss her
  • Wow Dan getting into Nathan’s head about his relationship with Haley, I didn’t think that could still be done
  • By the way, I’m not even surprised it was Deb who tried to kill Dan like she was basically at her limit with him
  • But hey is Keith back for real now? And are he and Karen finally going to get back together?
  • Brooke and Lucas 2.0 is cute
  • Peyton will 100% get her heart broken by her birth mother again and I’m not here for it, she hasn’t had a lot of good things going for her at all and like I just want her to be happy
  • Was Clothes Over Bros ever a real thing – I tried to Google but nothing came up, something tells me it was with the way it’s advertised at the end of episodes
  • Omg everyone is talking about college – are they gonna go separate ways? It’s hard enough to keep up with everyone when they aren’t at school
  • Rachel is still scheming when it comes to Brooke lol I kind of hope she sticks around
  • Yass Keith and Karen
  • A school shooting and a suicide? This show was ahead of its time
  • I just gotta say though, I saw this coming when the time capsule got released. But the episode was still super tense
  • I also kind of hate that they are writing in any excuse for Peyton and Lucas to get together – THERE ARE OTHER WAYS – not to mention Brooke is going to get heartbroken once again. This is not cute guys
  • I think I was the most shocked at the end of the episode when DAN SHOT KEITH. RUDE. What the hell?!
  • I’m pretty sure Peyton will be fine which is good
  • I am sad about the guy who committed suicide, and yes the episode had a good message. I just didn’t expect it from this show – nor did I expect it so soon? It makes me think of that Grey’s Anatomy shooting episode. I wasn’t expecting it either and it broke my heart.
  • I wonder how we recover from this? I suppose we don’t but then when it comes to TV shows I feel like everyone is amazing at recovering from trauma real quick. Like Meredith Grey has been through A LOT but she still doing her job. If I was her I would’ve given up long ago haha.
  • Anyway…back to One Tree Hill
  • I knew Rachel released the time capsule
  • Mouth is so pure and him being friends with Rachel wrecks me – like I think sometimes they are cute together but then Rachel will be rude to him and I won’t stand for it
  • Karen being off the rails because of Keith has me so shocked, who knew she could be this way?
  • Also this Pete from Fall Out Boy thing is just plain weird and random and totally necessary, I want good things for Peyton but probably not this lol
  • So is Deb back for good?
  • Lucas finally stepping up about his heart, I knew he had to confess at some point
  • I was not expecting Rachel to be dating uncle Cooper lol – can’t believe she lied and broke Mouth’s heart what a bitch
  • At least Cooper is not a creeper and when he realised she was in high school left town
  • Dan having a change of heart about Nathan came way too late and sure I feel a little bad for him but he killed Keith so…he sucks. Nathan and Deb were right to get the restraining order
  • Peyton going to see Jake is what I needed in my life. We love Jake.
  • Wow she’s asking him to marry her lol that would never work, we need to stop people thinking that’s a good idea just because Nathan and Haley are making it work
  • So Nathan and Haley’s wedding day…I can sense something going wrong, you don’t start an episode out with Nathan dreaming Haley is drowning and nothing happens…
  • Deb telling Dan she tried to kill him is iconic, I honestly love her haha
  • Karen is pregnant? Damn
  • Is this show trying to make it so Peyton is always alone and has no friends – like she told Brooke she had feelings for Lucas and she is not having it at all. So it looks like they’re friendship is over once more
  • Also Brooke being pissed at Lucas for the kiss and also she keeps saying she’s been going through a lot but like has she? All I know is that she’s been making clothes…
  • Oh I see they want us to think everyone could possibly be pregnant because Brooke made everyone the same purse.
  • Also wow Rachel is crazy, but I honestly felt like she was going to do something wild like that just by how she was acting about Cooper – I personally think she has spiralled super quick compared to how we saw her in the beginning
  • I’m really annoyed they keep having this cliffhangers where they try to kill of main characters like hello I am not here for Nathan to be dying guys this ain’t cute.

So this season was jam-packed with drama like always. I feel like I always say this but like I just want some good things to happen for Peyton, compared to everyone else her life is so tragic and like for once could it be cute? I feel like it won’t ever be find until she’s finally with Lucas but I hate that, like why can’t she be happy without a man in her life?

As for the whole guess who’s pregnant thing, I don’t know who it is and I honestly don’t care? I feel like if it’s Haley that’s just crazy, isn’t it enough she married young, if it’s Brooke that’s lame because we already had that pregnancy scare and finally, if it’s Rachel well that’s just her being desperate to keep Cooper. Over it.

I am surprised about Karen though, I hope that she has her baby and keeps the memory of Keith alive. I was shocked that Dan said he would help take care of the baby but we all know he’s just feeling guilty.

I wonder what the aftermath of the accident will be, I assume Nathan will be fine because Haley is way too young to be a widow. As for Cooper and Rachel I don’t know, but I think Rachel’s time on the show is coming to an end. So we’ll see.

I don’t really have predictions this time around, I’m just kind of hoping good things happen for Peyton and Brooke and Lucas either call it quits for good or make it work.

So that’s it for now, hopefully I’ll be back soon to talk about season 4.

One Tree Hill Season 2 Thoughts

We are back with One Tree Hill and I have just finished season 2. I have to say a lot happened in this season, so much that I feel like I needed to stop watching for a while because I was overwhelmed just a bit haha.

Anyway, before we go into my thoughts for this season, let me checkout what my predictions for this season were and if I was close with any of them.

Okay well first thing is that I was wrong about Lucas and Keith staying away, technically Keith did move away later in the season but they both come back because of Dan’s heart attack.

Then we had Peyton and Brooke’s friendship, looks like it stayed pretty solid this season so hurray for that. My prediction wasn’t totally wrong about Peyton walking on eggshells with Brooke but it didn’t last long.

Next we have Nathan and Haley, and the show started off like they could handle anything as a married couple but as the season went on it kind of fell apart. Not surprised honestly.

Finally I predicted that Dan and Coach Whitey were both going to be fine, and they were! Though Coach kind of took a backseat this season as it was less about basketball and more about everything else.

Now that we have that out of the way it is time to dive into my thoughts on the whole of season 2:

  • So Lucas being away from town only lasted two minutes…cool
  • Dan is in the hospital and not dead so there’s a good sign?
  • Peyton and Brooke legit back to being friends but now Lucas hasn’t actually moved away it could cause trouble between the two
  • I can’t believe Haley’s parents let her marry Nathan, this still seems so bizarre to me. I don’t know if they make it last but like it’s so wild?
  • I guess it’s kind of cute everyone is accepting Nathan and Haley’s marriage but it’s still strange
  • Looks like Dan has a new outlook on life since his heart attack, I wonder if this continues
  • I feel like Deb’s life is falling apart and she just doesn’t know what to do :/ poor girl
  • Also Keith is sticking around to run things in Dan’s absence, let’s see how it goes
  • So Nathan is now working with Keith which is cute, I want more Nathan/Keith bonding moments
  • Dan leaves the hospital and tries to make good with Lucas but it doesn’t really work – no surprises there
  • Karen flirting with her professor is all kinds of red flags like I just don’t see it being good
  • I can’t believe Peyton almost took cocaine like damn guys that came out of nowhere, I’m glad she didn’t take it though
  • These little nothing fights between Nathan and Haley are kind of dull, I feel like they are trying to accent that yes, they will have problems but ultimately are perfect and together forever. Well I’m not super ready to jump onto this ship
  • Words can’t describe how annoying I find Felix…like can he move away already
  • That being said the dare episode was fun, Mouth doing karaoke is honestly the best thing ever and everyone should see it
  • I KNEW that girl who joined Lucas on his dares wasn’t a randomer – as the episode went on I pieced it together, wonder what trouble this will cause…
  • Oh wait so Peyton did take cocaine that one time…dang. I hope that doesn’t become a thing.
  • This whole Felix thing is annoying me so much. I just don’t like him and Brooke deserves someone that isn’t a dick.
  • Also Nathan can be real cute sometimes rejecting his dream to support Haley’s and doing all the formal stuff for her. He is precious.
  • Mouth also deserves better btw. Like being treated like crap by Felix. So rude. I want him to be with someone cute.
  • I don’t know what it is about Keith’s new girlfriend but there’s something shady about her and I cant quite figure it out…maybe it’s in my head but who knows
  • Looks like Deb and Dan have magically worked things out. Good for him for telling the truth though. I knew he would lie about his illness to get her back but he came clean.
  • Lucas and Anna, not really sure where that is going but it is clear that she and Felix have secrets and it’s only a matter of time before they come out
  • Oh so the secret was rumours about Anna being lesbian…I definitely thought there was more but okay
  • Plus someone save Peyton from herself plz
  • YASSSS JAKE. I’m so glad he back
  • Cant believe that music guy decided to kiss Haley. What a jerk
  • I can’t believe Haley almost ran away with him?!
  • Omg I knew Keith’s girlfriend was sketchy – it was a set up from Dan. Ugh.
  • So no one is going to tell Keith about his terrible girlfriend, this wedding is going to be a hot mess lol
  • Brooke had a job for five minutes and is now class president, sure
  • Peyton and Jake are playing house and it’s cute
  • Haley’s sister came in a stirred up trouble – but not anything more than what Haley stirred up for herself
  • Surprised that Haley just went off to do her thing and left Nathan – but I guess I understand why she did what she did. Still poor Nathan is a mess
  • I KNEW Lucas would have the disease, ugh I hope he is okay
  • So I guess Nathan and Haley couldn’t make it work?
  • Can’t believe Jake turned himself into the police. What a saint. I love him
  • And the coach runs away with Jenny I wonder what will happen with that
  • Wow Keith’s wedding was a disaster :/ poor guy. Ya’ll should have made better choices regarding him okay
  • I guess Dan will always be out for revenge I knew he was trash and I will always stand by that lol
  • Oh so Dan has another brother?
  • Hey dancing your problems away is a Grey’s Anatomy thing
  • Deb passed out in her garden in the morning is a mood
  • Yasss Mouth get it
  • Well Lucas almost died last season so let’s give nathan a turn
  • Lol it is too early for a what if episode
  • Or did they just reshoot the pilot with some lives swapped
  • Nathan wanting his family to come back together is cute but like they will always have problems
  • It’s sad he decided to sign annulment papers but also why does part of me think Dan just signed the papers anyway and went behind Nathan’s back because he would do that
  • Haley is pissing me off because she should have just gone back to town and been with Nathan regardless of what he said if she really loved him. Not to mention the fact she hasn’t even been calling Lucas to find out what’s going on?!
  • I’m sad Brooke found that stuff in Lucas’s boxes. She deserves happiness
  • So Haley is staying on the road and the marriage between her and Nathan is totally over :/
  • People love throwing stuff through Dan’s windows
  • Nicky took the baby :O I guess things with Jake will never work out. Poor guy
  • Of course Dan lied to Nathan about Deb’s addiction
  • And I guess that’s the end of Andy? Didn’t like him that much anyway tbh they’re relationship was just kind of meh
  • So Peyton’s mum is alive?!
  • Brooke is leaving for the summer and Lucas loves her so that’s fun
  • Yassss someone poisoned Dan – he deserves it
  • Yo and set fire to the office. So dramatic but I love it
  • Lucas left without a dad and a brother…that sucks – he was only trying to do the right thing 😦
  • Plus his mum just left to chase after Andy – OMG DID HE KILL DAN – I love jumping to conclusions but he went missing suspiciously quickly
  • Oh hi Haley!

This season was wild from start to finish haha. But now the only real question is where do we go from here? I imagine the show will deal with the summer before everyone joins senior year, and also tackle that final year of high school because it’s always big.

My predictions are that Brooke is possibly MIA for a while so they can film John Tucker Must Die because she was in that lol. Keith will come back (hopefully), Karen and Andy don’t work out because Andy knows she loves Keith. There is investigation into Dan and basically everyone looks guilty. People find out about Lucas having the disease because he needs medication. Nathan doesn’t want to listen to Haley but she is desperate to talk to him and figure things out. Can’t say for sure if they make it work but eventually they will find their way back.

If we are going my predictions the last time then these will probably all be wrong but I’m hopeful that some are right lol.

I guess I won’t know until I start watching again so I better go and prepare some snacks and buckle in.

You Season Two Thoughts

Hello You,

I have just finished watching season 2 of You and so I thought I would share my thoughts, similar to how I did for Grey’s Anatomy. I took bullet points while I was watching the show, so that is what I’m going to share.

However, I will probably add more to them since this was a quick thing and I just wanted to watch the show.

Also before we get into this I wanna say I have read both books the TV show is based on, so if you wanna know my thoughts on Hidden Bodies, the book this season was based on then feel free to check it out here.

Now onto my thoughts on the TV show:

  • Oh Joe, running away to LA because your ex you thought was dead showed up. Mood. But also it seems so random like I feel like the book did it better, I know Joe was trying to find a place Candace was never gonna find him but he literally could have gone anywhere, in the book he goes to LA to chase someone else.
  • I was so shocked to find Joe built a cage in LA but also kind of impressed. Don’t ever change man.
  • Wow in the first like five minutes of the show Joe is getting his finger cut off by a crazy guy, that’s fun.
  • Ooh Beck the ghost! I wonder how long this lasts.
  • Well that guy definitely needed to die because he was a psycho and would never have left Joe alone but what’s next for Joe and Will?
  • It is so creepy watching Joe grind up that dude omg.
  • Delilah got a huge upgrade from the books I mean she went from “Don’t fuck Delilah” to “Don’t fuck with Delilah” – you go girl.
  • I love that they needed to write in some way to kill Henderson to stay true to the books. At least in the TV show it seems like they tried to make out like Joe was being a good guy whereas in the books he kills him over some comedy sketch lol
  • Ooh Candace and Forty I see how it’s going to be. I knew we hadn’t seen the last of her.
  • Joe accidentally killing Henderson is hilarious like look at him trying to turn a new leaf but someone died anyway…Yikes.
  • Nice nod to the book with Candace using Amy’s name. I would have preferred if Amy had been in this one but I guess there’s a thrill of trying to figure out what Candace’s plan is with Joe.
  • Poor Candace having PTSD from Joe. Not surprised though I mean she was buried alive.
  • I “wolf” you. Seriously?! So much worse than that everythingship crap.
  • I’m so glad the Third Twin thing is just a reference and not Forty’s whole idea for a movie because I don’t think I could handle that crap again. It was so stupid.
  • Seeing Joe tied up like that was hilarious but I wish it had been Candace who did it and not that other woman.
  • I guess no one is going to find out about that first guy Joe killed? I mean I suppose no one really knew about him apart from Will.
  • So Candace just got paid off and went on her merry way? Okay then.
  • Ahhh enter Milo. Surprised Love is actually sleeping with him though didn’t think that would happen. Also surprised Forty hates him, I thought he loved him in the book.
  • Joe actually took a selfie so he can online date lol. Who is he?
  • Omg that whole cleanse thing too. LA has changed Joe forever.
  • I see that Love is not going to go through that whole oral issue she had in the book. Kind of sad about that though because I thought it would be hilarious. Though in the TV show she seems to be pretty kinky.
  • Ooh Joe and Delilah getting arrested for public indecency . That’s fun. Also they were kind of cute together.
  • I was wondering how they were going to kill Delilah but she finds out about Henderson. So he kills her and then that cop guy obviously – but what about Ellie?
  • Hey Joe fixed up that wall – nice.
  • WAIT he’s letting Delilah go?! Someone is really trying to turn a new leaf.
  • Forty drugging Joe is so wild. And I thought this was when Joe was going to attempt to kill Forty but I guess not.
  • DELILAH MURDERED – but who did it?
  • Omg her facial recognition worked? With her eyes closed?! Sketchy, mine doesn’t work sometimes when I have makeup on lol
  • Joe calling Will and him being totally chill about Joe having another person in the cage and possibly killing them is crazy but okay. We love a non-judging friend.
  • Hey Candace is back! Hi girl.
  • Ah she found Joe and Delilah! This is where Joe gets caught and goes to jail right?
  • I guess not she just calls Love instead. I know from the book that Love is okay with Joe being a killer and even helps him get rid of that mug of pee so this is fine. I mean in the book I was unsure if she was really in love with him or just saying it so she didn’t die but we’ll see where this goes.
  • OMG LOVE JUST KILLED CANDACE I DID NOT SEE THIS COMING.
  • Love also killed Delilah and that babysitter? Wow.
  • LOVE IS LIKE JOE I’M SCREAMING. She is not like she is in the book, she’s a killer, she wanted Joe from the beginning, she knew they were soulmates I kind of love it but was not expecting this oh my God.
  • Lol wait does Joe not like this?
  • WAIT IS JOE THE ONE WHO IS GOING TO PRETEND TO LOVE, LOVE
  • This is a turn of events, I did not expect Joe to recoil from Love, in the book, he is the one who is still head over heels in love with Love and would still do anything for her…this is weird.
  • I see that Forty has figured out that Joe is a killer and wants to free Dr Nicky. I can see why he is freaking out, if only he knew Love could be just as dangerous…
  • What is with Joe’s hair at this wedding it is so distracting haha
  • So Forty traps Love and Joe in Anavrin and wants to kill Joe. This took a huge turn.
  • Side note I think it’s nice that Joe wants to help Ellie. There is no Ellie in the books but I think it’s nice he thinks of her and wasn’t going to kill Delilah because of her. He always looks out for the kids, like Paco in the last season. I miss him.
  • SO THE COP KILLS FORTY? Unexpected. I mean I knew Forty died in the book but I couldn’t remember how. I wasn’t sure if it was going to happen on the TV show but it made sense because it was clear that Love and Joe could never be together properly with Forty in the way, at least how Joe saw it.
  • Plus I expected Joe to kill that cop because he killed him in the book lol.
  • And so it ends with Love, actually being pregnant, living in a lovely new home with the family she always wanted with Joe by her side.
  • Meanwhile Joe hates it and believes that he deserves this for all the horrible things he has done. He thinks this is his punishment, trapped with a psycho like Love because he wants his child to have a father.
  • But at the same time there’s a neighbour who he might have caught the sight of who he quite likes…

And here we are at the end!

This was a wild rollercoaster and the bullet points are way longer than I thought they would be but I knew I had a lot of things to say.

Overall the season was really good. I mean I already knew I was going to like it based on the book alone. I knew they would make changes though because that’s understandable but it’s interesting to see how they varied quite a bit from the book.

I was a little disappointed in the variations, mainly because they have changed Joe’s character from how he was. I wasn’t expecting him to recoil from Love and realise he was a terrible person. I feel like the TV show try and make you understand him and want to kind of root for him sometimes.

But I prefer that he is just bad and his thinking justifies all the wrongful actions. I guess I just prefer him be a straight up bad guy. Seeing him turn a leaf is not what I signed up for haha.

I also still can’t get over how extreme they made Love either, it doesn’t seem right but I am interested to see more of her and where it takes us. In the book I was questioning her love for Joe but in the TV show there is no question about it lol. So I wonder how raising a family will be.

But yeah, sadly there is no new book out yet so I can’t even use that as an indicator of how the next season will go. And yes, there will be another season because Penn Badgley told us lol. So I guess we have to wait. Though the book would definitely be different anyway because Joe actually went to jail.

I wanted that to happen to be honest, I was expecting him to go to jail. Surprised it didn’t happen. I know in the book he probably won’t stay in jail for long but even so, the TV show has taken a turn, where it will lead us I don’t know.

If I had to make predictions I would say that Joe pursues the neighbour, Love finds out and isn’t happy about it so maybe she tries to kill him? I say Joe makes an escape or kills Love and then…that’s kind of how far I get.

In the meantime I guess I go back to my other shows and books and patiently wait for more info, and also insert myself into every conversation about the show on Reddit because I can’t stop talking about it.

One Tree Hill Season 1 Thoughts

2018-09-07_1847

It’s time for a new show to talk about!

So since moving in with my boyfriend, it’s actually been kind of hard to find new things to watch, mainly because we both like very different TV shows haha. But I decided to start One Tree Hill because I saw it was recently added to Prime and definitely seemed like the type of show I would watch. My boyfriend does not watch though so I watch when he’s not around lol.

Anyway, I think I tried to start this show one time before, and I think I made it through like the first ten minutes before turning it off because it was a bit cringey…Well, I’ve powered through this time and I’m enjoying it.

So here are my thoughts on season 1, these blog posts will be similar to the Grey’s Anatomy ones I had where I just bullet point how I’m feeling – this show ended in like 2009 so for me to live tweet it would be dumb. So enjoy!

  • So Lucas’s dad left him because his girlfriend got pregnant but then a few months later he got someone else pregnant and stayed with them?! Lol okay
  • Did Chad Michael Murray have to train to be good at basketball or was he just already good at it?
  • Nathan’s shoulders are like super broad and it throws off his face-body ratio to me
  • I can already see Peyton and Lucas being together and Nathan and Haley but also I was trying to figure out how they were brothers in the same year so Wikipedia definitely spoiled some stuff for me
  • Lucas’s mom with Keith…eh kind of saw it coming no idea where it will go though
  • Oh is Lucas getting with Brooke?
  • Also yay Brooke is not just a dumb cheerleader, we love people with depth
  • Lol Lucas with a tattoo – tell me they get rid of it though
  • It’s cute that Nathan’s mom wants to bond with Lucas’s
  • We can all agree that Nathan and Lucas’s dad is honestly the worst character and super annoying right? Cool
  • Omg they actually had the guy who sang the intro do a guest appearance wow
  • I can’t believe they tried to almost kill Lucas off halfway through season one, he’s a main character! (I was outraged but then remembered in 90210 in the first season they almost killed off Adrianna as she had a drug overdose…all teen shows are dramatic)
  • So Luke was with Brooke and ended up almost getting with Peyton and they tried to keep away from each other and it didn’t work. Am I surprised? No.
  • Brooke deserved better from both of them though, to find out from a webcam is so skeevy.
  • Jake with his child is so cute and Jake is honestly so pure I love him
  • Dan saving Lucas was nice but that doesn’t forgive him for being such a dick about his divorce
  • Also, Keith drinking and driving did not expect that from him but I guess that leaves him and Karen on the outs for a while
  • Please tell me Keith doesn’t actually do business with Dan though
  • Poor Keith loses his business to Dan and Karen doesn’t want to marry him. Honestly, his storyline is so depressing and I hope something good comes for him
  • Jake’s ex was the girl Lucas randomly slept with at the bar oof. And she wants to be a part of her daughter’s life lol no please get rid of her Jake does not need this
  • So Nathan’s parents are getting a divorce, meanwhile, Nathan is asking for emancipation because he can’t deal with either of them – messy, messy
  • Then there’s Brooke who is pregnant?! With Lucas’s baby – yikes, don’t know where this will end up but can clearly say nowhere good
  • Haley got a tattoo of Nathan’s jersey number and it’s even worse than Lucas’s tattoo. Of all the people on the show to do dumb things, I never saw this from her. It’s not cute tbh it would have been nicer if it was placed elsewhere haha but yeah there’s that
  • Still more of Dan being the worst. criticising Nathan for trying to be independent and failing, deciding to act like a good guy and tell Lucas he always wanted custody and decided to coach the basketball team just because he can. Ew.
  • Also, Brooke not being pregnant and just being petty – mood but also not cool.
  • I hope Jake comes back. Nikki is a psycho but he shouldn’t have to run away 😦 I’ll miss him
  • I feel like Haley is totally overreacting about Nathan and the whole porn situation but okay. I totally get why she wouldn’t be cool with Nathan still having pictures of Peyton though
  • Lucas thinking running away is gonna fix him…I don’t want him to leave, I know that since he joined the basketball team things have been kind of cray for him but I think he should stick it out – I know he won’t be away forever as a main character but still. I’ll miss him
  • Keith leaving though is probably the best thing for him after the whole Karen situation, live your best life Keith
  • Back to the Dan wanting custody of Lucas thing, I guess it was cute at the time he wanted to fight for his rights but at the same time he still turned out the way that he did so I’m thinking he’s still not the best guy and will always continue to be the bad guy, which is cool with me. We love a villain
  • So they decided to show Dan with a soft side at the end of the season, only to give him a heart attack – I think they are trying too hard to get us to feel pity for him…at least a little too much
  • I do feel bad for Dan but at the same time he is mostly a horrible person so we see what happens to him
  • I thought it was HILARIOUS that Keith slept with Deb btw I didn’t see it coming at all but there ya go
  • I hope Keith has a good time away like I said he deserves it
  • Please take care of Lucas
  • Also, I so don’t know if I should trust Brooke when she had plans with Peyton to send Nikki off somewhere else – she’s still probably upset about Lucas and Peyton and like it seems like the kind of thing she would do…I guess we see what happens
  • Special shoutout to Haley and Nathan for being dumb and getting married lol
  • I really wanted more for Haley I thought she was smart, but in reality, she just got blinded by love and became another dumb girl – ugh wake up girl
  • Plus Nathan was stupid to agree with it come on boy I thought you knew better too…
  • And finally, I just want to say I can’t believe the show went out of their way to have Karen tell Lucas that there is only One Tree Hill so cheesy…

This brings us to the end of season one! No idea what’s to come but I’m intrigued to find out.

I want to predict that Keith finds teaching high school more difficult than expected, Lucas doesn’t fit in, in the new town, Peyton still iffy about Brooke so walking on eggshells, Haley and Nathan realising marriage is tough and also Dan being okay – also Coach Whitey, I hope he’s okay but somehow I see him not making it 😦

I guess we come back next post and see if any of my predictions were correct. And I’ll also try and avoid googling to see what happens because I wanna know everything lol.
