Last week I got addicted to Kim’s Convenience, a show about a Korean family that runs a convenience store in Toronto.
I’ve watched the first episode a few months ago during my flight to Toronto, and although I’ve liked it at that point, it didn’t catch me. But this week I watched a few more episodes with my wife, and I’m totally hooked. Sadly, we already watched everything and have to wait for season 3 😕
I also started watching Yuru Camp, an anime about… Camping. I’ve watched the first 3 episodes and so far I’m enjoying it a lot. It’s so cozy and heartwarming! As for cartoons, I’m enjoying the new Ducktales, and did catch up with Steven Universe (OMFG WHAT WAS THAT EPISODE!!!)
Yesterday I also started watching the last season of The Americans, one of the best TV shows I’ve watched these last few years. If you didn’t watch it yet, please do it! After I finish i, I plan on watching Glow’s 2nd season, quick premiered on Netflix last Friday. And with my wife, I’m starting Ozark. I’ve been curious about it since the first trailer, but never watched it.
And you, what are you watching right now? Leave a comment!
Today, The Hollow premiered on Netflix. This is a supenatural mystery animation, and I was curious about it, but unfortunately it didn’t delivered, at least on episode one.
The premise is interesting enough: three kids don’t remember who they are, and are confronted with many dangerous mysteries. The story and script are nice. It’s on the animation, dubbing and pacing that it doesn’t do a good job.
The animation feels a little bit strange, unnatural, and reminds me of some older point and click games I’ve used to play on my computer. And also does the dubbing. It may be the animation fault, and not the dubbers, but sometimes it feels like it’s just someone patiently practicing the script. And with this, the pacing gets way too slow, of course.
With the first episode feeling like a pilot, I won’t be continuing the series, unless I read some great reviews praising the series from episode 2 onwards.
Recently Netflix released its new original series: Lost in Space. It’s based on a show that aired in the 60s, about a family that… well… is lost in space. I’ve watched the movie with my parents some years ago, as I was curious after they told me about the original show, and I really enjoyed it. And now, we have a brand new series, a reboot, that has updated visuals, characters and spaceships.
Now premiering its 6th season, The Americans is always proving itself as a great, insightful and thought-provoking show. After a long time without any major spy shows (that I remember, at least), The Americans is good and strong enough to, hopefully, start a new wave of TV spy dramas.
This time, I went for a Netflix original j-drama, developed by Fuji Television, called Atelier (a.k.a Underwear). Although I’ve watched Japanese and Chinese movies when I was younger, this was my first Asian TV show.
The second part of season 3 is coming, and I’m so happy, as I caught up with the show last week. And of course, people on Reddit are already coming up with theories based on the titles.
The only downside is that in March I’ll be moving and preparing to start a post-graduation in May, so I think I wont be able to watch the episodes as soon as they air.
Another week, another Waiting on Wednesday. This time it’s a Korean Drama featuring Gong Seung Yeon, who was in some other dramas that I really enjoyed, like Introverted Boss, Circle and Netflix’s My Only Love Song.
So here I’m, trying a blog meme that’s really popular, although it’s mostly being used with book releases, and I’m going to do it including TV shows and movies too.
Today I have 3 new shows that start soon, all with links to their respective trakt.tv pages.
This weekend I’ve watched Atypical, a Netflix original drama about a teenager with autism. It’s been on my radar since its launch, but I never managed to have time for it, but now I’m glad I gave it a chance.
