Welcome to my monthly something-about-movies-or-show post. Usually I do a screen rambles, but since I barely watched anything in July (except for Spiderman: Homecoming, you can read my review here) I decided to do this post.
There are so many tv shows in this world. And when I say TV show, I do not just limiting it to western TV show. I mean anime and k-show too. There are so many popular shows that my to-watch list has at least 25 shows there, and it will keep growing. But not all shows work for me and it saddens me because I want to join the hype! I want to understand!
But alas, I did not. So here are some popular shows that don’t work for me. If you see your fave here, that doesn’t meant that I’m attacking it. It’s more of “it’s not you, it’s me” case.
To be fair, I’ve never really like teen or high-school set tv show. I don’t know why, but I just never interested with western high school setting show. Maybe because most of these shows deal with non-school related drama?😂 The cinematography in Riverdale is A+++ and I’m also interested in who kills Jason, but I feel… bored. Nothing happens until episode 4 and I wasn’t invested in any of the characters, so I didn’t continue.
Yuri on Ice
I know, I know. I was actually pretty addicted to this show at first. I watched the first 6 (or 7?) episodes at once. But then I stopped and when I tried to continue I just wasn’t feeling it. The animation is so detailed, Yuri and Viktor are so cute, and I love how it breaks the whole masculinity value, so I don’t know what went wrong. I will give it another try eventually, but for now….. sorry.
I have 2 episodes left from this show but I decided not to continue. Why you asked?
I love the humor and the cinematography. I swear this show is so aesthetically pleasing😍The characters are also incredibly complex and layered, but the age gap creeps me! I read a lot of vampire books but none of the love interest actually called the vampire “ahjussi”. The plot also bores me and there’s something about the special effect that just annoys me. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the relationship between Goblin and Grim Reaper, they are definitely the best part of this show. However, in the end, I just don’t feel it worth wasting another 2+ hour to see how this show ends while I wasn’t invested with the characters.
I love crime tv series. But for some reason that I don’t even know myself, Dexter just doesn’t work for me. It couldn’t grab my attention even though it offers a fresh new perspective- I mean, a police/serial killer??? Since I gave up early in the series, I can’t talk much about it, so there’s that.
I love this story and I love the Tim Burton’s movie! Which is why when the tv show was announced, I watched the first season religiously. Unfortunately, I stopped at season 2 because the story seems to go all over the place at that point?? It’s just not what I signed up for, so I quit.
What popular show that doesn’t work for you?
