I been wanting to watch this show for awhile and I finally had the time to watch it and I enjoyed it so much I watched all 8 episode in basically 1 day. Which anyone who binge watches know that’s a blessing and a curse because it’s so good you can’t stop but then you’re left with nothing at the end. For those who don’t know 50m2 is a Turkish Netflix show about a hitman who tries to start a new life by assuming the identity of a dead mans son in a small town. And it is amazing!This show is the perfect combination of thriller and comedy! I kept switching from gasping to laughing so many times and I loved every second of it.
All of that is overshadowed by my love of Gölge(Shadow in english) who I would describe as bad guy with a heart of gold. He’s just trying to start a new life and make new connections with people who don’t want to use him or lie to him. During the whole time watching the show I’m rooting for him so much and I hope he can live his own life. Which with the massive cliffhanger I have no idea if that will happen!
All I can hope is that Netflix will bless us with another season because I need to know what will happen to everyone in the show! So, everyone needs to watch this 10 out of 10 show and give it all the love it deserves!
I absolutely love this show and hope with all my heart and Netflix’s viewership that it gets a second and third and fourth and…(you know where I’m going with this) season. This show has everything you’d could want from a teen drama its got romance, unique characters, twists that get me every time, and of course all the drama you could want. And a cliffhanger that keeps you want more! For those who haven’t seen the trailers yet for Young Royals the basic plot is a young Swedish prince(who just wants a normal life) gets caught in a scandal and his family sends him to a boarding school where he deals with everything that comes from being a reluctant prince with the complications that come with budding romance. This show got to me so many times, I just kept wishing over and over that Wilhelm(the aforementioned prince) will get to live a happy life.
I’m going to pause my gushing of my love of Young Royals for a moment to talk about how I love Netflix for bringing this to into my radar. If it wasn’t for Netflix I most likely would have never gotten the opportunity to get into anime, k-drama, and all other foreign shows that I love so much. So, I’m always surfing Netflix for some really good international show and I get really excited when I can experience a new show from a new country. Oh and for those who don’t want to watch foreign shows because of subtitles… get over it! Just joking, or am I? But really in case you don’t know most of Netflix’s original foreign show have english dubbed for those who don’t want to read, so you need to watch it!
Now back to Young Royals, honestly one of my favorite things of this show was how unique each character was. I loved(and loved to hate) every character and really really hope I get to see what becomes of all of them. So, this show was definitely a 10 out of 10!
The number 1 way I know a show is good is when I’m sad that I watched it too fast, because now it’s done and I have to wait around wondering and hoping if/when it’s going to get a second season. Which is exactly how I feel with Netflix’s show, DOTA Dragon’s Blood. First things first I knew that this was somehow based off the computer game, but since I don’t actually know anything about the plot or even if its an MMO or something else and I was very curious on what it be like. But that didn’t stop me from absolutely loving this show, it’s got some of my favorite things elves, magic, and best of all… DRAGONS!!! Anyone who knows me knows that I love dragons, but just because the it has dragons doesn’t mean I’ll immediately love (it doesn’t hurt though). So, when I first watched the trailer for this show I was skeptical because it at first looked the main character had only vague connection to dragons or at most “summoned” a dragon to fight. And I’m not a huge fan of summoning in this genre, I prefer when the characters actually transform into the creature instead of summoning it because it doesn’t look like they’re passing off the work to something else. So the fact that there wasn’t any summoning in the show immediately squashed any of my worries and allowed me to enjoy every aspect of the show.
Second and literally the best part of this show was the DRAGONS!!!! Like I said I love dragons and this show had so many different types of dragons and they all looked special. I’m very picky when it comes to dragons but this show gave me all different types of dragons that covered all my bases for what I enjoy in dragons. Thats one of the biggest reason I want another season is so that they can show me even more dragons!
I also can’t wait to learn even more about all the cliffhangers they left us with and even more I can’t wait to see what else happens with the characters. Especially the budding relationship between Davion and Mirana, which I can’t wait for it to move to the next level*wink wink*. But really I’m super excited to see where else this show goes.
Unless it’s fantasy or has sword fighting of some kind I don’t normal watch period dramas. They usually have to have some dark or actiony for me to want to watch them so I wasn’t really planning on watching Bridgerton when it first came out but then my sister had the family watch it together. And my first thought about it was that it was great! It was so much fun to watch and I can’t wait for the next season.
I think what made this show great was its unpredictable predictability. By that I mean you could easily guess where it was going but you were always wondering what will happen between point A and point B. This made the show an easy and enjoyable watch with only a minor bit of stress. And as every ad is saying right now that’s a good thing in these stressful times. But seriously sometimes you want a show that has you on the edge of your seat every time other times you want a semi-peaceful show that you can just simply watch knowing that things are going to turn out okay with your favorite character somehow. So I definitely recommend people watch this show.
I only had 2 things I had a problem with in this show. The first and biggest is the costumes. I’m not saying the costumes are bad, they are beautiful, I just personally don’t like that time era of dresses because they always look like nightgowns to me and it always messes with my head by making me think they’re walking around in public in the their pjs. The second problem I had was that they very very very subtly gave a reason in the show to why the cast could be so racially diverse in this time period. I had a problem with this because I preferred it much more when there was no reason in the show for the casting, I enjoyed the fact that the cast was diverse for no reason and I felt that making a canon reason in the show just made it less cool. So, really the only problems I had with the show was because my own personal preferences. All in all I give this show an 8.5 out of 10!
I recently finished watching SOTUS S which is the second season of the Thai drama SOTUS and I loved every minute of it! It filled my heart up so much but there is 1 thing that I can’t stop thinking about. So some background, in the show one of the main characters does an internship and at the end of the internship the company throws a farewell party for the 2 interns. Like is this a thing in Thailand!? Literally I can’t stop thinking about this. Is this something that the show just made up for the plot of the show or is farewell parties for interns a thing in Thai culture? Because if it is that is insane.
Forget all the relationship drama I need to know if interns are this big of a deal in Thailand. Because if they are, sign me the hell up! Besides for the actual plot that I love so much thats one of the things that I find super interesting when I watch asian dramas. Like all the cultural differences in Thai, Korean, and Chinese dramas (to name a few) makes me wonder how many of them are actual things that happen in real life or are just made up for tv. Until I actually visit Asia I guess my precious dramas will have to be my only knowledge.
Ha you like that word play? I do. But really the first episode of the last season of Shameless came on and it’s bitter sweet. Sweet because it was a fun episode but bitter because I know this is the beginning of the end. This is going to be a short post because I don’t want to spoil too much about the episode but I still need to write a little blurb about my love of Shameless. Now I enjoy probably every Shameless episodes(no bad one comes to mind) and this one was no different but the biggest thing that interested me is that it seems like they’re making Covid a huge plot point this season. Which I feel like is a little different from other shows, most other shows I feel like are barely mentioning or just pretending it doesn’t exist in their show. So, this is going to be interesting to see how the Gallaghers are going to survive it. Which I have no doubt they will because as Frank always says “Gallaghers are Fighters”. I just hope that this is going to be a super fun and crazy last season!
Finally my favorite reality competition show is back, BATTLE BOTS! I’m not a huge reality competition show watcher but when I discovered Battle Bots a few years ago I got hooked right away. I love watching it sooooooo much.
There’s just something about robots fighting that satisfies that primal need for destruction. The fire, shrapnel, and robots flying 10 ft in the air is just so fun to watch! It also makes it better that there’s never any mention of prize money, so if there is any that’s just second to the pure joy the teams get from fighting robots.
So, now that it’s back everyone needs to watch it!
Recently I got an idea for an awesome show that I would love to watch! Can you guess what it is? That’s correct, it is a prequel to the Ocean’s movies. I have no idea how you figured it out! But seriously after I watched 11, 12, and 13 multiple times in a random order I thought of an idea for an Ocean’s series and I thought I might as well write it down and put it into the world and maybe the great TV show gods will grant my wish.
So, my idea is that the show would take place when Danny is in his like mid 20’s or 30’s(something like that) and it would show how Danny becomes a big name in the criminal world. And throughout the series Danny would meet almost everyone from the movies in different cons and thefts. Now you’re probably like what about the young guys like Linus who wouldn’t born yet or be toddlers. Well for some of the characters they sadly wouldn’t be able to show up like Yen but for Linus Danny could meet his parents or something like that. There could also be flashbacks to Danny as a child and his families as criminals. I also imagined that the show could some how(probably some time jumps involved) get to Danny meeting and marrying Tess and the show would end with Danny successfully stealing the Incan Matrimonial Head masks and Rusty being like “you won’t be able to sell them though” and Danny’s like “we’ll see” and it ends there and anyone’s who remembers the first movie would be ooooooooh that how he goes to prison!
Obviously that’s not a lot of detail but I would just love to see the background of the characters and how they met, plus I love thief shows.
Oh my god finally 2020 has given me something good. I’m getting a live action Netflix Assassin’s Creed show! As the title says I’m so fucking excited this is literally my favorite game and it was just yesterday that I got 100% sync on Assassin’s Creed 3. This is a god send, I’m going to be floating on air for at least the next week because of this news.
It’s also great because I don’t need to much to be the same as the games for me to love it. Of course I would love it to be Ezio’s/Desmond’s storyline because they’re my favorites so far but I don’t actually need that to love it. All I really need is awesome parkour, hidden blades, and the creed to be spoken at least once in it’s entirety. That’s the great things about Assassin’s Creed is that the universe is so open that they could make up some new story lines. But if Netflix does choose to do Ezio’s and Desmond’s storyline then that could probably last them 3 to 4 seasons and more jumpy, climby, staby the better!
I can’t wait till Netflix tells us more about what the plot and casting is going to be and if they put as much effort as they did into The Witcher this show is going to be great. I just hope I don’t have to wait years for it because I need this now! But hey at least the knowledge that this is happening makes up for losing so many news movies this year.
