Travelers Season 2

Netflix released season two of Travelers on December 18 and honestly, the only reason it took me so long to watch was Christmas. I’m not convinced the week before Christmas was the greatest release date, but I won’t pretend to be a marketing expert. ­čÖé I watched season 1 of this show back in May […]

Series Review: Haven

I have just finished watching all five seasons of Haven (2011-2015) on Netflix and I recommend it to those who enjoy a paranormal mystery — with a few caveats. First and foremost: Season 1 was uninspiring. I don’t think I would have finished it except that my 11-year-old son was watching with me, and he […]

Dear Netflix

Dear Netflix: I thought you were different. I’ve been an ardent supporter of the Netflix brand almost from the start. Well before on-line viewing became more the norm than the exception. Well before your original content made you a serious threat to cable TV. You created binge watching, everyone’s new favorite way to watch TV. […]

Travelers Season 1

Canada is once more proving that they’ve got game when it comes to science fiction television shows. This joint Canadian/Netflix venture was an easy binge watch with an instantly hooky premise and a great cast. So sometime in the future, things are bad. “Travelers” jump back to modern time by rewriting the brain of some […]

Sense 8 Season 2

It’s been almost two years since I reviewed “My New Favorite Scifi Series: Sense8” I made no bones about it, I love, love loved this show! I┬árewatched┬áit 3 times in the summer of 2015, checked daily for news of its renewal, and felt the greatest relief of my life when they announced it had gotten […]

Lemony Snicket Season 1

Finally, a Netflix original show that is not only great entertainment for me, but great to watch with the whole family! The Series of Unfortunate Events is based on the bestselling books, which I have not read. But I don’t feel like I missed anything by going straight to the cinematic adaptation. These shows were […]

Netflix Original: The Magicians (Season 1)

Short review: Never mind, my feelings are too complicated for a short review. Long review: I didn’t like this show at first. In fact, I’m not entirely sure why I watched past the first few episodes. My husband suggested that the show had a good premise and, much like with Charmed or Heroes, I kept […]

Sense8 Christmas Special

After 18 long months of waiting, I got a Sense8 teaser for Christmas! I love love loved Sense8 Season 1, which I first watched in June of 2015 and subsequently watched several more times (each time coming through with a better/deeper understanding of what I was watching). The show was renewed 2 months later, but […]

True Memoirs of an International Assassin

Austin and I were in the mood for something light this weekend and as if it were planned for us, Netflix released its original movie “True Memoirs of an International Assassin” on Friday. This movie tells the story of an aspiring novelist working on his first suspense-thriller. Fellow writers, you will particularly enjoy the setup […]

Galavant Season 1

If you haven’t seen Galavant, then I’m afraid there’s really nothing on TV today I can use for comparison. It’s musical theatre with some funny bits. The first episode had me laughing harder than I have in a good long while. The first episode got me on audacity and shock, though, and once that had […]
