I am so incredibly late to this party. Last night I was getting ready to fold laundry, and looking for something to watch while I did. Galavant came up in our “recommended” section, so I figured I would check it out. I’m so freaking happy that I did.
Fangirls I have spent the past two weeks making my way through the Fast & Furious movies. Last night I finally watched 7 (we were supposed to watch it on friday but our disc doesn’t work). So I finished up the series last night, and holy crap. I thought this series was just going to be dumb action stuff, but feelings for these sneak up on you and hit you incredibly hard.
We have Hulu, and it’s helping us take binge-watching to another level. Sure, we have Netflix too, but they don’t always have the same shows. Regular Show is one of those shows that is on Hulu, but not Netflix. It’s hilarious and we started it last week, and are about 4 season deep at this point.
Fangirls, as you may or may not recall, I reviewed a show called Sense8. You can see the review here. Basically, even though it had some flaws, it’s also incredible for several reasons. It has amazing representation and it has a super stressful but super beautiful plot. It takes the knowledge somewhere out there people have the same birthday to the milisecond, and it expands it, connecting those people mentally and physically and emotionally. They are called clusters but more importantly most clusters become a family. The show follows the newest cluster as they discover this new world and run from danger. And this year, they gave us a two hour Christmas special.
There will be spoilers after the break.
Fangirls, I love musicals. I also love animated movies. Bonus: I love talking animals. Sing was practically made for me. Coming from the team behind Secret Life of Pets and Despicable Me, Sing seems like the answer to Disney’s Zootopia; a story set in a world without humans. It stars an adorably crafty koala, who is on his last ditch effort to save his theatre. He hopes that by creating a singing competition (where auditions were open to the public), he would be able to sell out the theatre and settle some of his debts. Unfortunately, the flyers made for the competition had some extra 0’s in them, so the grand prize is advertised as $100,000 instead of $1,000. Oops.
Fangirls, I have finally begun watching the magical girl anime, Sailor Moon! I’ve been told for ages by several people that I would really enjoy it, and now that we have hulu, I can watch it without having to pay the crazy prices for box sets (season 1 was about $75 when I checked). I’m glad that so many people have recommended it to me because its phenomenal and I love winding down while watching it.
Alright Fangirls; I was scrolling through Netflix last week (dismayed that they still haven’t put the most recent season of Bob’s Burgers up) when Haters Back Off popped up. Since it was only 8 episodes, I figured I may as well try it out, and see how I liked it.
