Shows I’ve Recently Watched #10

On My Block
Season 03

264d1a0f-807b-483f-80c3-6bc9ece431b7

SYNOPSIS

“On My Block, co-created by Lauren Iungerich (creator of Awkward) and Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft (All Eyez On Me, Empire), is a coming of age comedy about four bright and street-savvy friends navigating their way through the triumph, pain and the newness of high-school set in the rough inner city.” via Bing Search

MY REVIEW

In Season 03, Jasmine is included a lot more. Along with the crew, I’ve grown to love her more than be annoyed of her. Jamal deserves so much more attention from them all though! I felt frustrated for him so many times throughout this season and the entire show.

Ruby is still my absolute favorite and I’ll always ship Monse and Cesar, no matter how awkward. I should’ve known when too many events were folding out the way I wanted them to that… the ending wouldn’t.

I’m not excited for the next season because of what the last episode showed us but, of course, I’m looking forward to watching it still! I can’t wait!

MY RATING: 4 out of 5

End of the F****ing World
Season 02

eotfw season 2

SYNOPSIS

“Two years later, Alyssa dives headfirst into a new life — just as a woman with a grudge sets out on a murderous quest for revenge.”  -via Rotten Tomatoes

MY REVIEW

Wow, wow, wow!! I was floored by Season 02 of End of the F****ing World. It was such a whirlwind watching all the different story lines and then, my heart just stopped when they all connected.

The scenes at the motel were the most suspenseful. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next and I was not disappointed by the action I witnessed.

Even though each episode flew by quickly, there seemed to be enough content for an hour long. For those who said there was no need for a second season, you’ve officially been proven wrong. I still want to see more of Alyssa and James! I am just in love with the odd duo. ❤

Good Girls
Season 03

good girls

SYNOPSIS

“Three suburban mothers suddenly find themselves in desperate circumstances and decide to stop playing it safe and risk everything to take their power back.” -via IMDb

MY REVIEW

Good Girls just keeps getting juicier and juicier! I am continuously shocked at the lengths these mommas will go. Every time I think, “they wouldn’t,” they DO.

There were too many jaw-dropping scenes to choose only one that stood out. Every episode was filled to the brim with intense drama; I was always left just itching to see the next one. OH! The scene with Beth’s hubby in the elevator was one I’ll remember for awhile. I yelped a bit when it happened.

Annie’s starting to bother me, a lot. She makes the most idiotic decisions… I feel bad for her son and anyone who associates with her, at all. Ruby and Stan need to get it together, too. They love and do so much for each other; they both need to realize that. Their side story line was one of the most interesting this season. Beth was, as always, her bad ass self.

Good Girls has already been renewed for Season 04 and I could NOT be happier! Yay!

MY RATING: 4.5 out of 5
WATCHED IT ON: Hulu

American Horror Story
Season 09 – 1984

american horror story 1984

SYNOPSIS

“The season has been described as being heavily influenced by classic horror slasher films such as Friday the 13th and Halloween.” -via Wikipedia

MY REVIEW

I am sad to say that American Horror Story, Season 09 – 1984 was… my absolute least favorite so far.

The beginning episodes dragged, on and on. They were extremely cheesy. I mean, I *get* that they were supposed to be, just like a slasher film would’ve been in 1984 but, my gosh, it was terrible. Billie Lourd’s performance was the worst, laughable even. I could not take her seriously.

I have grown accustomed to seeing Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson show up… I anticipate watching them transform into different characters more than anything. SO, I was not only disappointed, I was heartbroken, when I finally realized that they weren’t ever going to.

Emma Roberts and Lily Rabe were able to save the day though! And, the story does eventually pick up. There is still a genius behind the scenes somewhere.

MY RATING: 2 out of 5

Riverdale
Season 01

riverdale

SYNOPSIS

“While navigating the troubled waters of romance, school and family, Archie and his gang become entangled in dark Riverdale mysteries.” -via IMDb

MY REVIEW

I already talked about Riverdale in my most recent Five Friday Faves. I’m currently near the end of Season 02 and more hooked than ever.

The Blossom and Lodge family are both so enigmatic, I am absolutely LIVING for it. Cheryl and Betty are definitely my favorite characters out of everyone and the diner is the most retro cool setting. Archie cracks me the heck up, with his naive, good boy solutions but, it’s so endearing.

If you’ve seen every episode, pleasepleaseplease refrain from commenting any spoilers down below!!

REALITY TV

I won’t go into detail about each of these shows but, I’ve left a little synopsis for you in case you’re into Reality TV like I am. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but, it sure is mine. I devoured the following during lockdown:

  • Love Island Australia (Season 02) on Hulu
    • “Single hopefuls looking for love complete tasks, couple off and get voted out week by week. Packed full of drama.” -via IMDb
  • Jailbirds on Netflix
    • “At the Sacramento County Jail, incarcerated women fight the power and one another as they try to make the best of life – and love – on the inside.” -via IMDb
  • The Circle on Netflix
    • “Players start off isolated in an apartment, and with their online interactions as their only means of any communication. The players use a social media platform called ‘The Circle’.” -via IMDb
  • First and Last on Netflix
    • “Cameras enter Georgia’s Gwinnett County Jail to document the first days of its newest inmates and the final days of those about to be released.” -via IMDb

  1. Damn it my Netflix still hasn’t got Good Girls season 3 but urgh I’m so sick of annie being so helplessly stupid with her decision, I UNDERSTAND she is meant to move the plot but it makes the audience so frustrated and hate her. And AHS s09 hasn’t come either I dont know why. I actually got to watching 1. Ozark 2. Broadchurch which I loveeee! They really keep my heart pumping and invested! Hope you’ll check it out!

    1. I don’t think Good Girls Season 03 will come out on Netflix until Season 04 is released. I watched it on Hulu!

      I actually hate Annie so much lol. She’s the worst & just keeps becoming even more hateable.

      AHS S09 was on Hulu, too! Same as Good Girls, I don’t think it will be on Netflix until their next season is released.

      I have to check out Ozark, for sure. Seems like everyone loves that one! I’ve never heard of Broadchurch though. Def gonna look it up! Thanks so much for your recommendations, Coredlia!! ❤

      1. OHH i see! Seems like it’ll take a long while! I feel bad for Annie, idk why the writers keep doing that to her. I hope you check them out and love it!!!

    1. YESS! I’m so happy that you were impressed with S2 even though you weren’t sure about it after S1 ended. That totally proves just how good it was, right?!

  2. Season 9 of AHS is on Hulu!? I need to check it out! I was reading about it and it seemed liked people weren’t the biggest fans of it. I keep meaning to rewatch the series again. I love Evan and Sarah, so I feel like I’ll be disappointed in this season too.

    I was curious about The Circle and so I watched the preview, but Stephen had such a distasteful look on his face so I decided to watch something else, but I’ve been missing reality TV lately!

    1. It is on Hulu! I was surprised when I saw they added all the seasons, including 9! We almost stopped watching it midway, it was that bad… but I had to push through. I didn’t want to miss something that could be important in a future season & luckily, the ending picks up a bit.

      The spark was lost without Evan and Sarah, for sure. 😦 It didn’t even feel like AHS!

      LOL about Stephen having a distasteful look about The Circle. Boyfriend actually watched it a bit with me here & there & asked me who won when I watched the finale without him haha. It’s a quick & fun show though! I think you’d like it! 😀

      1. I’m shocked it’s on there and I usually wait for it to show on Netflix! That’s so disappointing to hear it’s not as good, but I’ll keep that in mind! I wonder if Evan and Sarah will come back if they keep renewing seasons. It has gone on for awhile though.

        I’ll definitely add that to my list to watch! Stephen and I are watching Avatar the Last Airbender right now since he’s never seen it and he likes it a lot! 😂

  3. I am SO HAPPY you finally watched and enjoyed S2 of End of the F-ing World. OMG yes the hotel scenes!!! I thought the ending was perfect but I’m still going to need a S3.

    Yessss the elevator scene in Good Girls. I almost died. And the scene of what happened in the van. Annie is definitely bothering me, too.

    I need to figure out which season of AHS I’m up to and start watching it again. I can’t imagine it without Sarah, Evan and my fave, Jessica.

    Did you ever watch that one show I love but still haven’t seen the final season of yet? I forget the name of it so I guess you can’t answer that question.

    1. Ahhh yess, EOTFW was SO good!!! Definitely was my favorite out of every show I reviewed this round. 🙂 The hotel scenes were just so heart racing!! I was so worried for James & Alyssa.

      ALSO, Good Girls. That elevator scene!! & the van. Oh my gosh. My heart stopped. It happened so quick. & phew, glad I’m not the only one bothered by Annie!

      I’ve been missing Jessica for so long!!! 😦 Season 09 was just extra disappointing without Sarah & Evan, too. 😦

      Are you talking about Dead to Me?!? If so, I have no watched it YET.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. No not Dead to Me. Unfortunately I can’t get interested in S2 and I’m mad because S1 was so good. I am stuck at around 2 or 3 episodes in to S2.

        I remembered the name of the series that I wondered if you have gotten around to checking out yet. It’s “You’re The Worst”. I have not yet watched the final season of it.

  4. i still haven’t given On My Block a shot, i’ve hardly been watching TV like at all these past few weeks, it seems like we watch less and less during the summer lol
    i loooved the end of the f**king world S1 and i completely forgot there was a second one! as you maybe have noticed, i haven’t been able to watch anything, not just because the boys hog the tv, but because a lot of shows i cannot watch with CL around 😦 LOL
    the concept of the circle sounds interesting but i think i might get bored after a while lol
