This post was updated in May 2020 As a longtime fan of The Witcher games and books, I heard about the Netflix adaptation early on. Initially, I was excited. By the time the trailer released, my hype had turned to indifference. I decided I wasn't going to watch it. Then the show exploded. Surprised and unsure, I thought maybe my initial … Continue reading Why I don’t like Netflix The Witcher
Five tv-series to binge when you crave a little darkness
I tend to hibernate in my apartment for a few days and immerse myself in stories that are a little darker, more morally complex. If it's one thing I can't stand when I feel like this, it's too-good-to-be-true heroes and annoying characters that can do no wrong.
So, you loved Good Omens. Now what?
The recently premiered mini-series, Good Omens, on Amazon Prime is currently all the rage on my twitter feed. The series is an adaptation of the thirty-year-old cult novel, written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. At the moment, it seems like it's either being reviewed, analyzed, raved about, or involved in hilarious misunderstandings instigated by Evangelicals Christians.
Book Adaptations: Killing Eve
The next show on my list is, Killing Eve. The anticipated second season premiered on April 7th. I had hoped to have this post up by then; unfortunately, my sometimes temperamental back objected to that idea. So, we're now two (almost three) episodes into the new season, and so far it's looking good!
Book-to-TV Adaptations: American Gods
American Gods is a much-acclaimed novel by Neil Gaiman released in 2001. The book is a unique blend of Americana, folklore, world mythology, and contemporary fantasy. It follows the character Shadow Moon as he, after a prison sentence and the death of his wife Laura, takes a job as a driver and errand-boy to a man calling himself Mr. Wednesday.
Get a hobby?!
You know what I hate, when people tell me maybe I could get a hobby now when I'm not working nights anymore. I don't think people who are not into tv-shows and fandom realize just how much hard work and dedication it takes... During my mother's illness and the first few months after he death … Continue reading Get a hobby?!
How do you feel about crossovers? I'm not so sure my self... In some cases I understand and like them, when it's in the same universe like Arrow and the Flash or TvD and The originals, I get it, but I don't like when they over use it. It's like with Arrow and the Flash. … Continue reading Crossovers hmmm….
My mom is now offically declared symptom free - for now it seems that she's defied the odds and kicked some tumor ass. I'm happy, and exhusted and completly emotionally dained.

I've been thinking about this for a while, or more so reflecting on it. I've never been big on movies, the only time I'm really excited has been for the LOTR movies and other BIG productions like those. But I've still enjoyed watching movies even though I've always preferred tv-shows. But movies has always been … Continue reading BIG TV

Bookie, Showbie or Trubie???
I saw his post on the HBO True Blood forum today and it got me thinking. I was thinking, in light of the increase in animosity toward AB from people who believe he isnt doing a good enough job or sticking closer to the book story line. Do you think the show will lose some … Continue reading Bookie, Showbie or Trubie???
