This post has potential, minor SPOILERS.
Admittedly, I wasn’t sure how much I’d like season 2 of Bridgerton going into it. This is because I never felt any particular way towards Anthony (the eldest Bridgerton sibling whom this season follows). I was, however, happy to find that I enjoyed this season quite a bit and honestly, I probably enjoyed it as equally as the first.
Here’s the thing with Bridgerton. It’s not going to be for everyone and I would argue is not the kind of show you go into for anything other than a good time. While it does have deeper and more emotional scenes and storylines — Anthony’s past surrounding his father is a particularly good example of this — it can also be a little silly and over the top at times.

Ever since Extracurricular dropped on Netflix back in April 2020, I’ve been eager to watch it and I have to say, I’m so mad at myself for not watching it sooner.
This show follows Oh Ji-soo (Kim Dong-hee), a high school student who is engaged in a life of crime in order to graduate and escape a dead-end life. Along the way, things are thrown into chaos when someone from school finds out about his illegal side-business and from then on, things continue to get more dangerous and risky.
Throughout this review, I won’t be naming the aforementioned illegal side-business, mainly because it’s revealed in episode one and I, personally, found it more interesting to watch the reveal play out. That being said, the business does play a fairly big role in the overall story and is essentially another character in and of itself considering it has its own development as the season progresses. Also, the slightest change to it affects the human characters and vice versa making everything feel connected and raising the stakes throughout.

So, starting Trinkets was primarily down to good timing if we’re being honest. I loaded up Netflix with the intention of finding something quick to watch and this show was on the homepage and a trailer for it began to play almost instantly. Now, the trailer alone was enough to get me interested but I also vaguely remembered people talking about it online and the best part was that it’s only 30 minutes (or less) per episode and there’s only 10 of them in total. So not only did it look like it would be a lot of fun but it was also the ‘something quick to watch’ that I had been looking for and I’m so glad I decided to give it a shot.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Trinkets follows three teenagers Elodie (Brianna Hildebrand), Moe (Kiana Madeira), and Tabitha (Quintessa Swindell) who are thrust into each others lives after meeting at a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting and quickly become friends. This first season explores that friendship but also follows the girls through their individual lives and personal struggles that involve everything from family to other relationships to school life.

Another season of Queer Eye has come and gone again. It was just as fabulous as the previous ones with many moments to laugh and cry about so I thought I would put together a list of 10 highlights from season 3.
There will be spoilers for anyone who isn’t completely up to date but other than that, there is no particular order to this list. So, with that being said, I hope you enjoy and feel free to share your favourite highlights with me!

From the moment the first episode started I knew I was going to absolutely love this season. To avoid spoiling anything, let’s just say it starts with a car chase, Frank (Jon Bernthal) is covered in blood, guns, and a mystery girl (Amy/Rachel played by Giorgia Whigham). It was very suitable for this show and it most definitely felt like I was stepping back into the world of Frank Castle.
