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).

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!

Thoughts on House of Cards season 1 and 2

Hello everyone! Yes, I’m late, sorry. But you can’t write a review without having watched the last episode of the season, can you? Oh, yeah, it’s another TV review post, but I figured that it’s been a while since my laste one, so it’s okay. MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT! Have fun!

Thoughts on Orphan Black season 1

Hello there! How much time has passed since my last haiku? I don’t know. It doesn’t matter, here I am! And this time I once again indulge in “reviewing” a television series (as in “I comment of stuff that was memorable but don’t really say anything about the plot”). Today, it’s all about the first season of Orphan Black – which you should totally watch. Of course SPOILER ALERT!
