When They See Us! (and Chernobyl)

When They See Us! (and Chernobyl)

I love a good limited series. A show that introduces and wraps up a show in just a few episodes and is, essentially, a very long movie.

I’ve recently watched a couple of extraordinary ones that were recently released and based on true events. Both are getting rave reviews (and rightfully so)! I’m sure you’ve heard of and maybe you’ve even seen both of these already. But just in case you haven’t, I wanted to shed some light on them, especially one in particular…

Netflix Phenomena!

Netflix Phenomena!

In honor of season 2 of STRANGER THINGS premiering at the end of the month, I wanted to talk a little bit about --

Netflix.

We have all heard of and most likely have all used Netflix, at one point or another -- or even on a daily basis (especially on the weekends, am I right?!). So, how and when did Netflix become such a huge part of our content consumption? How in the heck did Netflix turn into what it is today?!

Winter Is Here!

Winter Is Here!

So y'all, I recently finished all of the seasons for Game of Thrones (seasons 1 - 6). Season 7 is nearing -- premiering next month, on my birthday actually!! :) There's so much to discuss. 

I started on April 4th (finished last Friday, on June 9th!). I was looking for something new to watch. So I came back to GoT. I just decided it was time I really gave this show a shot, and I had some time to watch it before the new season began. So that's what I did. I took my time with it. Finally.

Whoaaaa! This show, man.

First of all, the main title theme song is everything!!! :) It's absolutely my jam y'all! Like for real! :) Also, I began the show with not knowing too much about what happens throughout the series as it progresses. I've seen parts of some episodes here and there before my initial dive in though. My boyfriend watched this series a while ago. I would sometimes be there when he was watching it. So I was aware and knew of a few things before I started at the beginning...

Wonder Woman

I had the honor of watching the world premiere of Wonder Woman last night in Hollywood (work perks!) at the Hollywood Pantages Theater with Gal Gadot, Robin Wright, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, and other cast members in attendance. 

Premieres and opening weekends are always fun, especially for iconic roles! The theaters are always packed with excited fans and there's lots of clapping and hootin' and hollerin' when these iconic characters grace the screen for the first time or when they do something cool in a scene! :) I love being in the room with people who really appreciate it and clap during the credits. :) Last night was no different...

Grey's Spinoff (and Shonda Rhimes)

Grey's Spinoff (and Shonda Rhimes)

Okay y'all, so Grey's Anatomy aka Shonda Rhimes' first hit drama series, is getting another spinoff of sorts.

You remember the first Grey's spinoff Shonda created, Private Practice, which followed Dr. Addison Montgomery aka Dr. McDreamy's ex-wife from Grey's and into her own 'practice' right?! It ran for 6 seasons -- and similar to that one, Shondaland (Shonda Rhimes' production company) is going to start introducing some of the characters in an episode of Grey's Anatomy next season (its 14th season, can you believe that?!) and they will then spinoff into another show.

The new series (which got a straight to series order, because Shonda is the TV Queen y'all lol :)), will center on heroic firefighters and their personal lives. (I believe they tapped their foot in the spinoff in last night's fire consumed season 13 finale. Did you guys catch that finale, btw?!) ABC Entertainment President, Channing Dungey said, "No one can interweave the jeopardy firefighters face in the line of duty with the drama in their personal lives quite like Shonda, and Grey's' signature Seattle setting is the perfect backdrop for this exciting spinoff."
