It’s that time of year again, where we go back to the hellish world of Gilead in The Handmaid’s Tale. The Handmaid’s Tale is not for everyone. This show tackles triggers such as rape, violence on women and LGBTQIA, and sexual assault. This show is hard to handle and hard to stomach. There are many scenes, I am unable to watch and have to look away from the screen until it’s over. This show does not hold back, it’s very graphic and while it’s an excellent show, extremely well written and well acted, it is not for everyone. If you have any triggers related to rape or sexual assault of any kind, either don’t watch this show or watch with extreme caution. Now, let’s talk about 5 reasons to love The Handmaid’s Tale.
May is almost over! And I feel like I’ve enjoyed so many things this month and there are still so many more things to watch/see/read/do before this month is over! May has been such a good month for entertainment and geekdom! Join me on this journey while I explore all the things I’ve loved this month so far!
Hi, geeks! Spring has sprung! And I’m sneezing 50 times a day despite taking the strongest allergy medicine available over the counter. But in between sneezing, I’ve spent the month of March enjoying many wonderful new things and who better to share my favorite things from March than you lovely geeks? No one! There’s books, shows, podcasts, youtube, etc.! Get a snack, sit down, and let’s talk about some amazing things!
Fun fact about me, I love, love, love The Office. I watch The Office about 8-10 times a year. I never get tired of it. I am The Office expert. I know all the quotes, I hum the theme song to myself on multiple occasions, I have a Dunder Mifflin shirt, basically I am The Office Queen! I will take my crown and medal made out of a yogurt lid now (if you get that Office reference, then you’re going to really enjoy the rest of this article). I just love this show so very much. I watched it for the first time in my late high school years/early college years and I caught up enough to watch the last ever season when it premiered and I had to wait week after week to see what would happen next and wonder how it would end until that very last episode when I was a human pile of tears. It’s safe to say The Office is without a doubt, by favorite show in the history of forever. Let’s start this list!
Love is in the air! That means it’s time to talk about my favorite fandom ships. This list is comprised mostly of ships that are canon and maybe one or two that I just want or wish would happen really, really bad. Some of these ships are classic and so full of love that I still ugly cry when I watch their episodes when they fall in love and ugly cry even more when they get in fights. Ugh, it’s making me emotional just thinking about it. Let’s start with the list* before my eyes spring a leak.
*In no particular order
Also, this list may contain spoilers if you haven’t read/watched the books, shows, or movies these ships are from. Read at your own risk.
