As a fan of The Vampire Diaries, even I realize the series fizzled out at the end. The final season was frustrating to watch, and I only stuck with it to see how they tied things up after 8 seasons (albeit, it sat in the DVR for about a year before I could make myself sit through it). I was already becoming disenchanted with the series by the time the first spinoff, The Originals, premiered, so I never even bothered with that one. I’ve heard good things, but I’ve been “vampired-out” for a while. So needless to say, when Legacies premiered, I rolled my eyes and moved on. But the beauty of having a streaming service like Netflix is that you get a second chance to catch some shows even before the second season debuts. I found myself bored and alone one afternoon and unable to watch any of my usual shows without causing a rift in my marriage, and here we are…
In this cute YouTube video, the cast of CW’s Legacies tries to answer trivia about their predecessor show, The Vampire Diaries. And I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but I’d destroy them at this game…
The wait is finally over, people! Lucifer is back on Netflix, and I spent the last week binge watching it like one of the thirst queens in this week’s Fandom Funny. Read on to learn the best reasons to watch this hilarious show: Continue reading →
As some of you may recall, T. Mack and I delved into The All Souls Trilogy back in 2015. We read the goliath of a novel that is A Discovery of Witches, drank some moscato, and dropped our wine-honest thoughts on camera so you could decide for yourself whether it’s worth the read (You can check that out here). But even though the series was a hefty endeavor, I still found some magic in it, and when I heard it was being made into a TV show, and that many of my favorite actors would be cast in leading roles, I couldn’t wait to check it out. That was four years ago! But finally, it’s here! I binge-watched it like a lunatic, and here’s what I have to say about this slightly pretentious, vampire/witch romantic drama:
Netflix has its fair share of foreign-language misses; most of which, I rage-quit within the first ten minutes. There’s bad dubbing, too-rapid subtitles, cheesiness, and poor production value, with varying combinations of those four main offenses. In fact, finding good films/shows on Netflix that I haven’t seen before has become a bit of a unicorn hunt these days. Foreign language or not. So when I do stumble upon that odd show that sparks new joy, I have to share it with you geeks. The Hookup Plan, or Plan Coeur, in French, is one such unicorn. Continue reading →
Today, two badass women of current Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV come back to our screens with new seasons of their respective shows.
So this seems like a great time to highlight other badass ladies of Sci-Fi and Fantasy television who have been favorites of mine in the past.

In this Golden Age of superhero films, TV networks have cashed in and created their own superhero empires. CW has the Arrowverse, featuring four difference superhero shows from DC. And they are adding a fifth this month. ABC and Netflix both have shows tying in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And in Fall of 2017, Fox brought a brand, new X-Men spin-off series called, The Gifted. Though this new series takes place in an alternate time-line to Fox’s X-Men films, it is still very much tied to the history and notoriety of those heroes. And while the series has its strong points, it somehow fails to quite live up to the legend of its predecessor.
