As I’m sure many of you do, I tend to struggle to decide what to watch on Netflix. We have a couple things that we watch every night after work; we catch up on Game Grumps, Pet Collective, and Fail Videos on YouTube, and on Monday’s we watch Bob’s Burgers on Hulu. But the other day, we saw an advertisement for Aggretsuko, and I fell in love immediately.
Friends and Fangirls, I saw Atomic Blonde this past weekend and had the absolute best time. Saying that movie was everything I had hoped it would be is an understatement, and I can not recommend it enough. So let’s talk about it.
There will be spoilers here, but none too serious.
I want to start by saying I know nothing about Archie. I read one of the first issues of a revival of it because a friend recommended it. But the show Riverdale has been on my watch list since I first saw the weird CW treatment it was getting.
I’m a week late to seeing this movie, but I feel like I’ll make up for it by seeing it a thousand more times. It’s the super hero movie I’ve been waiting for. Yes, I am normally and always will be a Marvel girl. Yes, I wish and hope and pray that Marvel figures it out and gives more than just Captain Marvel her own movie (don’t get me wrong I am super excited for some Carol Danvers). And yes, I was worried about Wonder Woman given DC’s track record. But I needn’t have been, because she is the hero we deserve and the hero we need.
I cannot stop smiling about this week’s episode. It was all about Mad Sweeney, who’s my favorite, and his travels with two very strong women, played by the same actress. Woven through the modern day story is the story of how Mad Sweeney came to America, narrated by the one and only Mr. Ibis, who – as Mr. Jacquel remarks in the beginning of the episode – has a story to tell.
This episode is going to be extremely difficult to summarize. This episode had a ton of stuff in it and I need to figure out how to unpack it all. I’m going to try to here but I gotta say, this episode is best watched and heard rather than summarized. The writing is more superb than ever.
The second season of the Netflix series Sense8 was released on May 5th. Even though I didn’t get to binge watch it, I did finish it at 1am Monday night. I reviewed season 1 and the holiday special here and here. I liked season 1 and I loved the holiday special. But season 2 is the best the show has ever been.
