books, knitting, food and whatever else I want to write about

"Dix pour cent (Call my Agent!)" Season 3 (05-07 03 2019) - French comedy series on Netflix that I have been following. My French has been dropping off lately and I haven't been watching as many French things. I try to do it while knitting so this helped me finish the Pavement sweater. "Russian Doll" Season 1 (07 03 2019) - I like the time loop trope. I went in unspoiled and am so glad.…

King of thieves (18 02 2019) - We watched this for the great cast and while there are some funny moments due primarily to the cast chemistry, the script and pacing was off. Tone was a bit weird too; it was darkly funny but then other times it couldn't balance the darker moments. Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse (22 03 2019) - Very fun and worth the praise and help. This movie uses the animated medium…

Movies Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (04 01 2019) - Finally got around to watching this. It was on the long side but enjoyed most of the movie and its characters. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (06 01 2019) - Very fun. I love the jokes about video games and its tropes. Jack Black really stole his scenes. The cast was all great except Kevin Hart played himself. Definitely in for a sequel.…

The Night Manager (20-23 04 16) - You watch this mini series for two reasons: the scenery/cinematography and the actors. Hiddleston, Laurie, and Coleman are the stars. I think Coleman is the best actor, but Hiddleston and Laurie are excellent. Hiddles is just pretty. The story and writing have issues. It's not something to write home about, but this is a pretty, pretty series. Daredevil Season 2 (last week of May) - I think the…

House of Cards (March 25?-29, 2016) - A good season of the show. I enjoyed it. Maybe a bit more than the last. I love how the characters are fascinating, vulnerable, and vile at the same time. Claire's mother was a great addition to it. Cooked (March 29-April 3, 2016) - A Netflix documentary series based on Michael Pollan's book Cooked. I have been more into food than ever lately if you've noticed so this…

Mr. Robot (Feb 3-5, 2016) - I had heard a lot about this show when it was airing last summer, and I kept seeing Rami Malek photos. He is photogenic and has a certain quality about him. There is something mesmerizing about him. He's amazing in this and deserved all the praise. I really hope he gets more high profile roles. The soundtrack is one of the best I've heard from a TV show. Let's…

Select TV shows, more specifically marathon TV shows, that I watched in August and September. I am going to try to limit myself to one to two (if I have holidays) TV series a month from now on unless I am sick or on holiday. Episodes (August 2015) - As someone who isn't a completeionist and find it difficult just to make time for all my consumption and hobbies, I dropped this after watching two…
