My Gilmore Girls rant

Why, yes, of course this blog is still alive. I’m just very, very busy. Life, you know.

So, while I’m waiting for my Torchwood 10th Anniversary repeat viewing (happy birthday, you!), I’m writing my very long and probably very emotional rant (?) about Gilmore Girls, which I just finished watching. Spoilers ahead, obviously.

Thoughts on “Atelier” (aka “Underwear”)

It’s been way too long since my last blog post. Tomorrow is the first of April and the start of NaPoWriMo and I still haven’t made up my mind whether I will participate or not. I’ve got a lot of work on my desk, but maybe I’ll get bored? Who knows… Expect nothing and you might just be surprised!

Anyway, in the meantime here’s another review, of the Netflix/Fuji TV drama Atelier (or as it is known in Japan, Underwear), my first Japanese drama in a long, long time – and a pleasant surprise at that! (minor SPOILERS included)

Final Thoughts on “Downton Abbey”

Well, hello, yes, this blog is still active. Let’s just say there was a pile of paid work that I had to work through first.

In the meantime, I had time to watch all the DVDs I got for Christmas (and the many things that were on my Netflix list), so I now have lots of material for reviews. An no, I haven’t forgotten about Eliot the cat, he’s on my list of “stuff that needs to be finished”. Also, NaPoWriMo is around the corner, so this blog might get a bit busier in the coming weeks. Or not, looking at my work schedule…

So without further ado, here’s the SPOILER-filled review of the final season of Downton Abbey including a lot of speculation about what might happen to the characters afterwards (warning: not too optimistic).

Yes, this blog is still alive

Just a quick heads up: yes, I’m alive and well and I really want to fill this blog with more content – but alas, work is getting in my way. And the heat wave. Which will all soon be over (I hope), so there should be more actual content coming up.

In the meantime: a review poem about Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp

Sillyness, it shall prevail

If they weren’t famous

I wouldn’t care

Archer’s real face

Bradley kissing

Jon kicking ass

Seriously

What more could we want?

(Season 2, of course)

Intermission Announcement Haiku Stuff

I know, this blog has been quiet for two weeks (three?) and I apologize. I has assumed that I would actually publish something during my holidays – whatever made me think that in the first place. And then back home I was hit with a mountain of work and ever since I’ve been fighting deadlines. So, yeah, I guess it’s safe to say you won’t see many long posts until the end of August. Which is a shame, really, because there is SOOOOOO much I want to write. But we all know that money makes the world go round and unfortunately I’m no exception to that rule…

Review Mashup Haiku

Is he guilty or
Will she return from the SHUCan he be faithful

For the curious ones, these lines refer to Broadchurch, Orange is the New Black and Penny Dreadful, respectively. Just so you know what I’ve been watching these past weeks.

NaPoWriMo Day 29: “A Young Doctor’s Audience”

It’s Wednesday, folks! The week is almost over! (do you have Friday off as well?)

Today’s prompt: a review poem. Which is awesome, because as you know I write a lot of reviews and I’ve been wanting to write something about the second series of A Young Doctor’s Notebook. But writing something meaningful about four episodes is tricky, if you remember my review of the first series.

A Young Doctor’s Audience

Jon and Daniel
What a pair
Dancing a waltz
Where’s my gif

Blood and gore
Sex and drugs
Love and sorrow
Heartbreaking end

Fake Cyrillic
Always stupid
Good-looking men
Always welcome

Jon’s voice
You smoke too much
Or maybe you were ill
Never mind, I grin

PS: This format is kinda fun, maybe I’ll use it more often for series where I don’t really have anything meaningful to say… Although the one about Daredevil would probably read “Charlie / Charlie / Charlie / CHARLIE!” *cough*

Thoughts on American Horror Story Asylum

According to WordPress, today is my one year anniversary. Wow. So let’s all celebrate with another review – that is still not Downton Abbey. Sorry. Still waiting for the Christmas special DVD, so hopefully the review will come next week. In the meantime, enjoy the horror (?) and beware of all the SPOILERS!

Thoughts on Orphan Black season 2

Hello again! Yes, I said there was a Downton Abbey review coming – but stupid me forgot about her working schedule, so that review has been postponed to the first week of February. Next week I’ll probably post another part of the Fitch story (this is getting bigger than I thought…). And today, here’s my review of Orphan Black season 2. MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT!
