Ranking the Shows of 2021: From Worst to Best

For the first time, I am also ranking the shows I’ve watched this year considering that I’ve seen so many it feels right to do so. So, here goes nothing. Enjoy!

10. The Wheel of Time

Watch The Wheel Of Time - Season 1 | Prime Video

This show really wasn’t very good at all. I came in halfway through after my sister had binge-watched the first four episodes and found it entertaining enough to intrigue me to check it out. Unfortunately, the second half of the show was the worst half and it was quite agitating if I’m being honest. But I did enjoy watching it with my sister. We laughed through most of it and yes, I was mostly watching it for the plot.

The plot:

The Wheel of Time': Daniel Henney Teases a Scary Journey Through the Ways,  More on Lan's Culture in Episode 7 | Decider

But on a more serious note, I don’t recommend this series, that’s for sure.

⭐⭐

9. The Bad Batch

Star Wars: The Bad Batch (TV Series 2021– ) - IMDb

I wanted to love this show and at times it gave me plenty of things to enjoy but this series just felt lazily written more often than not. With convenient obstacles allowing predictable new stages of this show to take place, I was more exasperated than happy while watching this cartoon.

But the animation was beautiful.

I Finished ‘Squid Game’: Here Are My Thoughts

I’m writing this post now but I actually finished the show two days ago after bingewatching the series over the course of four days. When it concluded I was left so flabbergasted by the wild and rather twisted story I had just consumed that I honestly needed to take some time to digest what I had just seen.

Now I’m ready to talk about this show, albeit in a spoiler-free way, and even though I’ve got a lot of thoughts I’ll save that particular post for another time. So here’s my review for the series as a whole.

If you’ve seen Hunger Games then you may have an idea of what you’re about to get yourself into. And even so, nothing can quite prepare you for this very violent demented story that will have you looking at simple children’s games differently for quite a while. Yeah, I’m traumatized.

‘The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes’ Is the Best Thing on Netflix

Netflix has a lot. I’m talking a whole heck of a lot. Sometimes it’s hard to find really incredible series and movies on this streaming service because so much of it is often subpar but The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes is truly…extraordinary.

Presenters Caroline Quentin and Piers Taylor, an actor, and architect, are invited to some of the most incredible houses in the world, leaving you utterly riveted, awed, inspired, and slack-jawed as you enjoy, through the television screen, these captivating homes.

I’m talking about houses that literally look like they’re out of a movie but are actually real. Want a peaceful binge-watchable television series to watch on Netflix? Please take a look at this series. It doesn’t disappoint.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

Netflix’s Original Series, ‘The Dragon Prince’, Returns November 2

Netflix has a bunch of original series for viewers of all ages. One such original series that I ran into was The Dragon Prince. I ended up binge-watching the series’ first two seasons in a day, literally, it was that good. I couldn’t wait to learn when the third season would arrive and, surprise, it arrives on November 2.

If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. The Dragon Prince is a delightful animated series on par with the imaginative wonders of such shows like Avatar: The Last Airbender, Voltron: Legendary Defender, and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.

If you have seen this show before, I hope this announcement made you just as happy as it made me.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing day.

A Poster Has Arrived for the new Netflix Original Series: ‘The Witcher’

If you may recall Henry Cavill last year announced that he was done playing Superman, leaving superhero movie fans in slight shock. We all knew Ben Affleck was on his way out but Henry Cavill too? On the heels of his announcement, it was also revealed that Henry Cavill would be taking his talents to another frontier–the global streaming Goliath, Netflix–where he would star in a live-action adaptation of the beloved video games series; The Witcher.

I even have this game stashed away somewhere in a lost vault with all of the other stashed games I own (mainly Wii games.) Funny thing is, I haven’t even played it. I couldn’t take the main character’s deep Batman-like voice. It was grating on my nerves big time. Anyway, off of that.

Netflix is creating an original series coming out later this year bringing the game to life with Henry Cavill starring as the main character. That’s pretty cool. And today the first poster dropped. Here it is. Continue reading A Poster Has Arrived for the new Netflix Original Series: ‘The Witcher’
