My Netflix Adventure: Supernatural Seasons 9 and 10

Image
Now I’m almost caught up on this series!

If you don’t know, I have spent the past two weeks watching Seasons nine and ten of Supernatural on Netflix. I had originally watched up until season nine a few years ago but I stopped watching when Season nine aired. I had kept up with the show a little bit over the past year but hadn’t watched it, so it was interesting coming back to the show after all this time.
The most interesting thing about coming back to Supernatural was seeing how my preferences changed. I used to not like the one off episodes and basically always skip the vampire episodes, but watching seasons nine and ten I really loved the one off ghost episodes and I felt some of the vampire episodes brought new ideas to favorite characters. I believe this change happened since I wasn’t as invested in the overall plot of the season. I just didn’t care that much about the angels and their drama from season nine and the issues with Dean in season ten were definitely interesting but fru…

My Netflix Adventure: Scream Season 1

Image
This show was surprisingly enjoyable and addictive.

I gave MTV’s Scream a shot for two reasons— I needed something to watch, and Sean Grandillo is on it. You may not know but I am a HUGE fan of Deaf West Spring Awakening so when I found out Grandillo was in Scream, I had to give it a shot (sadly he doesn’t come in until season two). I went into the show not expecting much but I actually found the show very entertaining and addicting. The good thing about doing a slasher in a TV format is that the writers are able to give more depth to the characters and allow the audience to feel for them before they start dying. I did start to get attached to some of these characters as the season progressed, but not to the point of crying if anything happened to them… I’d only be mildly upset. I also didn’t care much throughout the season about who the killer was. I got the feeling that I was supposed to be trying to figure it out myself, but I simply didn’t care that much. With that said, when the k…

Gifted Review and Author Interview

I’m still alive, I promise…
There is no chosen one in this story.
She was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and happened to make a decision that altered her future forever. It happens to all of us every day.
Avery Gray is a size twelve university student with a penchant for dry humour, and she’s as normal as they come. Up until now, the biggest choice she’s had to make was glasses or contacts? At the moment, it’s stay and save, or leave and be saved.
Allow me to explain. One rainy afternoon, Avery had to make a choice: go through the alleyway or around it. Two possible options. One would have had her future continue on as planned, the other would ensure that her future never remained the same again. She unknowingly went with the latter.
But change is not always bad. Avery meets Theodore-James Connors, an enigmatic young man who takes her to Hayven, a city separated from the rest of the world, where only gifters – ordinary people with extra-ordinary gifts – can go. She soon finds he…

My Netflix Adventure: Once Upon A Time Season Four

GUESS WHAT I FINALLY FINISHED WATCHING!

This is going to be a little different of a Netflix Adventure, and let me tell you why! I started Season four of Once Upon a Time back when it was airing live and I kept up with it weekly. I thought it was okay but confusing. Then, for some unknown reason, I stopped halfway through. When it finally came on Netflix I never caught up on Season four, but had the bright idea to move onto Season five. This also ended with me stopping hallway through. Now I have FINALLY gone back and finished watching Season four, and I mostly enjoyed it. My issue with Once Upon a Time (and this is more of a personal issue) is that you can’t multitask while watching it. I have to pay full attention to the show or else I get lost, and this is unfortunate because I usually do homework while watching TV. This is why I tend to not keep up with the show on a weekly basis— it becomes a chore. Once Upon A Time is more of a Netflix show for me, when I can watch it on my compute…
