Wednesday Review

I finally got around to finishing up Wednesday so I thought there’s no better time to post a review than on Wednesday. This might be an unpopular opinion but all around I thought it was a good show but not a great one. While Jenna Ortega was amazing as Wednesday for some reason, the show just didn’t get its hooks into me like other shows have. When other shows that I truly loved finished a season I would wait with bated breath to hear if it was renewed or not but with Wednesday I honestly would have been fine either way. It wasn’t bad but there were just one too many things that I had a problem with for me to be all in.

The biggest problem was the strained relationship between Wednesday and Morticia. Now, I’m no expert on the Addams family but from everything I know about them it just feels wrong that there’d be any tension between them at all. Another less serious problem I had was that it only became clear halfway through the season that everyone outside of the school knew about the supernatural and that outcast was the show’s name for supernaturals instead of a description. I don’t know if I just missed it but it took me way too long to realize that the normies actually knew about the supernatural and that created too much confusion for me. I also got kind of annoyed that the other characters seemed to flip-flop between not understanding Wednesday and understanding her. One moment they would act like they understood the way she acted then the next they would be mad at her for something she did. I just found the inconsistency a little annoying.

So the problems I have with the show combined with the good parts make me give the show a 6 out of 10.

Lockwood & Co. Review

I binged this show in one day and I fucking loved it! Everything about this show was awesome the premise, the action, and especially the characters. And even though I’ve never read it I’ve seen others saying it’s a great adaptation which as anyone knows is a huge plus. In this review, I wanted to talk about the 2 things I loved the most in this show.

First off is the whole premise of the show, a ghost-hunting show where the whole world knows about ghosts. In most supernatural shows like this usually, the majority of society doesn’t believe which obviously makes life harder for the main characters. But Lockwood & Co. flips that scenario on its head and I found that extremely entertaining. For once the characters can do their job and not have to make bullshit excuses for what they’re doing which is so refreshing. On a side note, I just have to mention how much I love them using rapiers to fight ghosts, especially as a huge fan of blades who has started collecting them too.

The other part of the show that I was completely in love with was the characters. More specifically Lockwood himself and even more specifically than that was how they dealt with his death wish. I was so emotional every time it was clear he didn’t want to be alive and even more so when he finally starts to realize life is worth living with the help of his new family. The whole situation was just so heart-rending and made me feel so much for him.

I just love this show so much that I give it a 10 out of 10 and am extremely hoping it gets a second season(I need to know what’s behind that door!) but I’m also preparing myself for the worst.

Fire Country Review

With the day off, my mom and I binged watched all of the current episodes that are out of Fire Country and we loved it. With 9-1-1 on a break right now I’ve been craving a show with a bunch of character drama and job drama, and Fire Country is kind of like 9-1-1 but a whole lot more serious. I love how 9-1-1 has an overall lightheartedness to it, but I love the overall seriousness of Fire Country so much more. Having that more serious feel to it just makes everything that happens in Fire Country more impactful, engaging, and entertaining.

Besides the overall greatness of the show, I wanted to point out 2 other things that I was really impressed with so far. First was how the first episode was perfect at getting its hooks in both my mom and me. The characters and the premise were so intriguing right off the bat, that I immediately had to watch the next episode. The second thing that I really enjoyed was how they dealt with the “love triangle” by not making it a love triangle. I’m not a huge fan of love triangles in stories in general, especially when it leads to cheating, so the way they handled the triangle by stopping it before it even existed was a huge plus for me. Basically, I love this show and can’t wait for the rest of the season and of course, give the show a 10 out of 10.
