TV Review: What's Wrong with Secretary Kim?

                                     What's Wrong with Secretary Kim? Review
What's Wrong with Secretary Kim is about how Kim Mi so the hyper competent secretary to the workaholic slightly narcissistic vice chairman  Lee Young joon has decided to quit her job after working for Young joon for the last nine years since she has been able to have a life for herself while working for him since she always had to be on call in case he needed her. Young joon doesn't want Mi so to quit because he has come to depend on her both as a secretary and as someone he depends upon emotionally even though he is oblivious to this fact even while he's offering to marry her in a desperate attempt to prevent her from leaving him. Mi so agrees to stay at her job until she finishes training in her replacement and sees through an opening of an art center that they have been working on together, Young joon decides to use this time to convince her to stay at her job by offering her money, trying to be a better boss and offering to date her so that she wouldn't have to quit in order to start dating.

As the series goes on Young joon realize that the reason he's so desperate for Mi so to stay is because he has romantic feelings for her which leads to him trying woo her because he actually wants to date her and Mi so it seems also have feelings for him but she a little less sure of it a relationship between the two of them could work out. There's a plot thread through out the series that deals with Mi so trying to find a boy that was with her when she was kidnapped for a few days when she was really little who turns out to be Young joon but because of some family issues Young joon's family is pretending that his brother was the one that was kidnapped instead of him despite Young joon having both physical and emotional scars from ordeal where his brother does not. The lies about Young joon and his brother leads to Mi so and the brother briefly connecting and almost dating but in the end Mi so decides that Young joon is the one wants before she even figures out the truth behind the switch.

This series also has several other romantic subplots that revolve around other works at the company such as a relationship that develops between Mi so's replacement secretary Kim Ji a and one of the hardest workers in the company Go Gwi nam who pretends to be wealthier than he is which Ji a figures out and because of her keeping his secret the two become closer until they fall for each other. There's also the relationship between Bong Se ra and Yang Cheol which is very cute since they have contrasting personalities with Se ra being quite loud and attention grabbing and Cheol being quiet and more subtle in his affection.

Overall I really loved this series it was really sweet and cute the leads were great both together and a part and made a terrific couple. This series was a lot of fun to watch and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys romcoms. Please tell me your thoughts on the series in the comment section below.

Book Review: Holding Up the Universe

                                                  Holding Up the Universe Review
Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven who also wrote All the Bright Places which was one of my favorite books I read last year and this book is about Libby Stout who was once the fattest teen in America who is returning to school for the first time in years after loosing some of the weight and Jack Masselin who is a fairly popular and he has face blindness which he keeps a secret from everyone in his life. Shortly after Libby goes back to school Jack ends up grabbing her because he feared that one of his friends would do something worse if he didn't and Libby punches him which lands both of them in detention for a few weeks. Jack ends up telling Libby about his face blindness and he tells her he's sorry and the two of them quickly become friends.

After being friends for sometime Libby ends up encouraging Jack to actually go to see a doctor about his face blindness and Jack encourages Libby to make her own choices about whether or not she wants to get tested for the condition that ended up killing her mom. Jack and Libby end up confiding in each other more than they do anyone else and the two of them end up developing romantic feelings for each other which leads to them starting to date. While Libby and Jack enjoy being with each other they find that social pressures and their own insecurities to be something that prevents them from being completely comfortable in their relationship with each other.

Overall I really liked this book it had two great main characters that you felt for and understood where they were coming from even when you didn't like the choices that they made. I really loved the relationship that developed between Jack and Libby and I liked how they were able to be honesty with each other and encourage the other to be braver. I also felt like this book was just as well written as the author's previous book and I can't wait to read her next book once it comes out.

Favorite Songs From Every Show Nominated for Best Musical Tony Award: Top 5 Songs From South Pacific

This is part of my series of posts about my favorite songs from Musicals that were nominated for the Best Musical Tony award and in this post South Pacific which won the award in 1950 while being the only musical that was nominated that year. South Pacific is a show that is much more book based than Kiss Me, Kate was which I think probably makes the show as a whole a lot stronger since there's so much more going on in this show. This show is one that has a lot going on with it being set in the South Pacific during World War II and dealing with matters of race rather directly. One thing I feel like I should note is that while I loved Mary Martin's voice who played Nellie I find that I didn't like Ezio Pinza's voice who played Emile which is something that is reflected in my song choices.

1. I'm Gonna Wash that Man Right Outa My Hair: This song about Nellie saying that she's going to end her relationship with Emile since she believes that he isn't as serious about their relationship as she is one that I find to be delightful both because of her beautiful voice and because it's actually quite good relationship advice to end a relationship if you believe that you and your man have different priorities and it also shows that ending a relationship can be viewed as a good thing.
 2. A Cockeyed Optimist: This is another song that shows off Mary Martin's beautiful voice and it establishes Nellie's character by her telling us that she's optimist which she doesn't view as a bad thing but pretty much everyone around her does. I especially love the line that she's Stuck like a dope with a thing called hope and I can't get it out of my heart, this song does a good job at making me like her character right away.
3. A Wonderful Guy: This song is a love song sang by Nellie shortly after she almost ended her relationship with Emile but have now instead decided to marry him. In this song Nellie addresses how it's a bit silly of her to be so in love and so sappy about it but she is both of those things and she wants to share that fact with everyone around her right now since she's just so in love and so happy about it which is just such a sweet song to listen to.
4. Younger Than Springtime: This song sang by Cable about how he is falling in love Liat a young local island girl is one that is incredibly sweet and is great song that shows they emotion of someone falling in love at first sight which is something I find very romantic in musicals.
5. You've Got to Be Carefully Taught: This song sang by Cable about how people are taught be to hate be taught to people for being different than you are and that these viewpoints are ones that often comes from ones parents makes this song one that shares the show's messages about race which was something that wasn't often talked about so directly like this at the time which I think makes this song an important one.

Book Review: Vampire Academy: Frostbite

                                                                Frostbite Review
Frostbite is the second book in the Vampire Academy series and in this book Rose along with Dimitri is one of the first people to encounter a massacre of a prominent Mori family that was being protected by a legendary guardian who also have been killed. This event is something that puts Rose world in more danger that it usually is since it shows that the Strigoi is becoming more of a threat since they are now working in groups with each other and with humans. In this book Rose also has to deal with her almost always absent mother coming to the academy since the mori that she is a guardian for wanted to visit their own child which is something Rose's mother isn't all too interested in doing herself.

This book is one that I feel like is mostly made up of a bunch of smaller plots that build the world and the characters but doesn't really add up to all that much in terms of a many plot for the series yet although it is clearly building towards one in the future. One of the main things Rose deals with in this book his her attraction to Dimitri and how she feels insecure about how he sees her as someone childish since he's so much older than her which makes her jealous of women who are Dimitri's age and she also tries to date her good friend Mason in order to try and get rid of her feelings for Dimitri. Another thing that is going on in this book is Lissa taking meds that keep her sane but keep her from practicing her spirit magic which makes her a bit unhappy. There's also the introduction of the character Adrian Ivashkov who is an older Mori who is a bit of a bad boy and also seems to have spirit magic. There's also a subplot about the Mori's learning to use their magic to fight rather than constantly relay on the guardians to keep them safe from the Strigois.

Overall I really did enjoy this book maybe not as much as the first one since there was a little less focus on Rose and Lissa's friendship and a lot less of Lissa and Christian's relationship which are my two favorite relationships in the series. This book was enjoyable but it's a bit hard to really define what happened in this book because it was a bunch of little things that really made up most of the book with big events happening towards the beginning and end of the book. Please tell me your thoughts on this book in the comment section below.

Book Review: Vampire Academy

                                                      Vampire Academy Review
Vampire Academy is about how Rose Hathaway, a dhampir(a half human, half vampire- protects moroi) and Lissa Dragomir(a royal moroi vampire) have returned to St.Vladimir's Academy after they have ran away a year ago since Rose believed that staying at the academy was no longer safe for Lissa since she has developed healing powers. This book is mostly about Rose and Lissa dealing with being back at the academy after their long absence which is something that has made them the subject of much gossip since leaving the academy and living among humans is something that is simply never done. Rose decides that it would be best for her and Lissa to keep a low profile which Lissa is fine with at first since she doesn't like being a center of attention but is a bit harder for Rose who loves attention, a good party and has trouble keeping out of fights due to her short temper.

A low profile is something that is made nearly impossible for Lissa to maintain after she keeps finding the bodies of dead animals left in her bed back at school which is something that terrifies Lissa and worries Rose because she believes this means someone knows about Lissa's healing abilities. After a rumor is started about Rose letting guys suck her blood Lissa decides that she has to protect her by getting in with the popular group which she does by using compulsion that works on dhampirs and morois alike but also takes a toil on Lissa's mental health which worries Rose a lot but she is unable to stop her from using it.

There are romantic subplots for both Rose and Lissa in this book with Rose falling for an older guardian who works as her instructor named Dimitri who makes it clear that nothing can ever happen between them since he's so much older than her and because guarding their moroi's will always have to come first which means there's no room for romance in their lives. Lissa ends up bonding with Christian Ozera who is an outcast at the academy since his entire family decided to turn into strigoi(bad vampires who are stronger than morois and dhampirs) and then were killed when he was very young. Since both Lissa and Christian are last surviving members of their families and now that Lissa doesn't feel like she fits in with anyone else(expect for Rose) at the academy the two of them connect and develop romantic feelings for each other very quickly.

Overall I really liked this book it had good characters, an interesting and while the book felt a bit light on actually plot I felt like this worked well with introducing us to the world and the characters. I really loved the friendship that Rose and Lissa share with each other and I also really enjoyed the romance between Lissa and Christian as well. Also an unpopular opinion I have is that I think that movie actually did do a pretty good job at adapting this book. Please tell me your thoughts on this book in the comment section below.

Favorite Songs From Every Show Nominated for Best Musical Tony Award: Top 5 Songs From Kiss Me, Kate

I have Wanted to listen to the cast recordings to all the Best Musical winners for along time now so I thought making a series of post listing my favorite songs from each show was a good way to go about doing this and I've decided to expand it to every nominated for Best Musical because a lot of the more recent show I love have been nominated but haven't won the award. While for this show I'm only doing my top five songs for other shows later on I will have a longer list both because the number of songs are larger for some shows and I tend to love the more recent musicals a lot more.

Kiss Me, Kate is a musical that I have never seen before but I did read the plot summary before listening to the original cast recording, so I have a somewhat limited knowledge on the plot and characters so I'm mostly judging this show on just the cast recording. This show won the Tony for Best Musical in 1949 and since no other musical was nominated that year I have assume that it winning was well deserved. Overall I found the recording enjoyable enough and I found a number of the songs to be quite catchy but it's still not a show that I'm dying to go out and see.

1. We Open in Venice: This song is what I believe is the opening of the show within the show which a musical version of Taming of the Shrew and this song is one that I enjoyed listening to right away and I found that the longer the song went on the more I enjoyed it. This song is super catchy and while it can be quite repetitive this was a trait that I found worked for this song because the repetitive lyrics just made me want to sing along with the song and I also liked that there were a few jokes mixed in with the song as well.
2. Another Op'nin, Another Show: This song was a really fun and catchy number to open up the show with and it gets you excited about seeing the show even though it really doesn't tell much of anything about the show that you're going to watching.
3. Too Darn Hot: This one of the three songs that I have heard of from this show before listening to the show and I can see why I have heard of it. This song is one that has a really good beat to it and it's one of the songs that feel like is suppose to be a dance number because listening to it makes me want to dance which I think is a good thing. This song is also one of the few songs in the show that I feel like the song is building up some kind of intensity as it goes on which is also a good thing to have happen while listening to songs from a musical.
4. Tom, Dick or Harry: This is another one of the few songs from the show that I have heard of before I listened to the show and I can understand why since it's one of the best of the show and super catchy. I found that the part with the girl playing Bianca in the play singing was a lot better than the parts where the male suitors were singing while they're parts weren't bad they weren't as good as hers and if it weren't for them this song would've been higher up on my list.
5. I Hate Men: While I overall really did enjoy this song and that the actress was a good singer I have to admit that one of the reasons this song made it on the list has to do with my hatred for the male characters in Taming of the Shrew and since this sang by Katherine in the show within the show it speaks to my hatred for those characters a bit. I also really enjoy the slyly calling men dogs by comparing them to Lassie.

Book Review: The Fill-In Boyfriend

                                                 The Fill-In Boyfriend Review
The Fill-In Boyfriend is about a popular high school senior named Gia Montgomery who is dumped by her college boyfriend who her friends haven't met yet in the parking lot before prom. Gia feels like she can't bare to face her friends without a date since Jules the newest girl in her group of friends has been implying that Gia has been lying about her boyfriend since she first mentioned him and now Gia believes that her other friends will believe that she's a liar too so when Gia sees a boy sitting his car after dropping his sister off at prom she begs him to pretend to be her boyfriend. The boy reluctantly agrees and it turns out that he's pretty good at acting so they're able to trick her friends into thinking he's her boyfriend.

After awhile Gia ends up repaying the fake dating favor for the boy whose name is Hayden by pretending she's his girlfriend at his ex's graduation party after Hayden's sister pretty much forced them into going together because she didn't want Hayden to get back with his ex who cheated on him with his best friend. While pretending to be each other's boyfriend and girlfriend Gia and Hayden end up connecting with each other and developing a real friendship with each other and it is also quite obvious from early on that the two of them are attracted to each other so it's really no surprise when their fake relationships start to develop into a real one.

I overall really enjoyed this book it was a fun read and I really loved the romance between the main characters and I liked how they felt like they could be more honest with each other than they could be with their friends from the start. I really enjoyed that Gia's plot about not being able to be honest with her friends didn't end in the way I thought it would because it wasn't just that Gia screwed up her friendship by lying to them but also that Gia's lifelong friends were eager to force her to be friends with Jules who clearly hated Gia and played her friends against her so I'm glad that Gia's friends weren't made out be faultless in the end. Another small plot thread I liked was Gia becoming friends with Hayden's sister even though she's not the kind of person Gia usually hangs out with.

Movie Review: To All the Boys I've Before

                                        To All the Boys I've Loved Before Review
To All the Boys I've Loved Before is about a high school junior named Lara Jean(Lana Condor) who's older sister recently left for college which leaves her feeling a bit lost because of how close the two of them were. Shortly after the school year begins Lara Jean discovers that her love letters that she writes for all of her crushes but never intended to be sent have been sent after Peter(Noah Centineo) a popular boy was her first kiss during a game of spin the bottle in seventh grade tries to letter her down easy after receiving her letter. Lara Jean is very freaked out by the news that her love letters have all been sent out and when she sees Josh(Israel Broussard)her sister's ex-boyfriend who she still has feelings for walking over with another one of her letters she kisses Peter to convince Josh that she isn't into anymore and then runs away from both of them which leaves both boys confused and Peter seems to have already fallen for her a bit after that kiss.

Lara Jean plans to just avoid all the boys that got her letters but she ends up being confronted by Peter about the letter again and after she explains that she kissed him so Josh won't know she still has feelings for him and this leads Peter to suggesting that the two of them fake date each other he claims that he wants to make his ex girlfriend Gen jealous and that it would help Lara Jean with her situation with Josh. Lara Jean agrees to fake date Peter and then the two of them come up with a contract where Lara Jean says that their will be no more kissing which disappoints Peter, they agree to watch Sixteen Candles and Fight Club together, Peter suggests that he writes Lara Jean love notes every day and says she has to go with him on the school ski trip which is three months in the future. Over the course of the story Lara Jean and Peter become closer and the two of them begin to share things with each other that they haven't with other people and began to fall for each other for real which makes things complicated in the best way possible.

Overall I loved this movie even more than I liked the book which was very good to began with, I found it nice that the movie didn't real make the story a love triangle between Lara Jean, Josh and Peter but rather just a love story between Lara Jean and Peter and an awkward friendship situation between Lara Jean and Josh. I liked that Peter much more clearly and quickly fell for Lara Jean in the movie than he did in the book and I liked how in the movie it seemed like Lara Jean's fear of falling in love was rooted in fearing loosing someone if they aren't just a fantasy. I thought that the movie had good acting and that the leads had good chemistry with each other as well and the movie was very pretty to look at as well. Please tell me your thoughts on this movie in the comment section below and maybe mention how you thought it compared to the book.

Book Review: To All the Boys I've Loved Before

                                             To All the Boys I've Loved Before Review
To All the Boys I've Loved is about a high school junior named Lara Jean who's older sister, Margot  is moving away to go to college in Scotland and since the two of them are incredibly close Lara Jean feels lost without her because of much she relied on her both at home and at school. While already having a rocky start to the school year Lara Jean's life becomes more complicated when she realizes that the love letters she wrote to her crushes in order to put an end to her feelings for them have been sent out which puts her in a very awkward situation especially with Josh her sister's recent ex-boyfriend and neighbor of Lara Jean who she still has feelings for. Lara Jean ends up telling Josh that she's dating Peter, a popular jock that also received one of her letters, in order to convince Josh that she doesn't have feelings for him anymore. Peter ends up going along with Lara Jean's fake dating idea and suggesting to take it further because he wants to make it clear to his ex girlfriend Gen that the two of them are done for good this time and he thinks him and Lara Jean dating will prove this.

As time goes on Lara Jean begins to fall out of love with Josh and in love with Peter but she's not sure that Peter feels the same way especially when it's clear that Peter can't stop caring about Gen even though he knows that relationship is bad for him.

Overall I thought this was a good book it had an interesting plot with good characters and relationships that made the book a great read all the way through. This book had a great bond between sisters in it and was an interesting take on the whole fake dating trope which is something that I always love to see.

TV Reviw: Can We Get Married?

                                                Can We Get Married? Review
Can We Get Married is about Hye yoon and Jung hoon a young couple who have just gotten engaged and now have to deal with getting their approval for the marriage. At first Hye yoon's mother is very against the marriage because she wants Hye yoon to marry someone who is far more rich and successful because she doesn't want her daughter to be wanting for anything after she had to grow up without a father. Jung hoon's parents are supportive at first but after awhile Jung hoon's mom feels insulted by Hye yoon and her mother because Hye yoon and her family simply can't afford to spend as much on the wedding as she thinks they should be spending on the wedding which she takes to mean that they think lowly of her. Hye yoon and Jung hoon's mother's fighting end up bring up their own insecurities about themselves and their relationship with each other which leads to the two of them fighting and doubting whether or not they can actually handle getting married to each other.

There are a bunch of other subplots in the series about various other couples in the series who are connected to Hye yoon and Jung hoon in some way. The pairing that takes up the most screen time is Hye yoon's sister Hye jin and her husband Do hyun who are getting a divorce since he has been cheating on her for quite sometime. The whole plot with Hye jin is honestly kind of depressing to watch because Do hyun just treats her so badly and he is threatening to take away their son and her means to support herself simply because he can and I don't understand why the show spent so much time on this storyline. My favorite pairing in this series was Hye yoon's and Jung hoon's friends Dong bi and Ki joon who have been dating for five years but Ki joon refuses to marry Dong bi because he believes getting married would destroy their relationship but as the series goes on they end up finding a new understanding of each other and eventually changing views on marriage. The last couple is Hye yoon's aunt Deul rae and Min ho who are both older but end up falling in love with each other and the two of them are very cute together through out the series.

Overall this series was pretty good but there were also quite a few characters and storylines in this series that I found annoying or frustrating which keeps me from really recommending that anyone watch it but it really wasn't a bad series as a whole either. Please tell me your thoughts about this series in the comment section below.

Top 5 Hidden Gem Books

1. Highly Illogical Behavior: This book is one that is about a high school boy who hasn't left is house in years because of his social anxiety this book as a really interesting story and interesting characters and the writing style that this book had made this book a really fast read. I read this book last year and became a fan of it right a way but I haven't really seen many other people talking about this book.
2. Reading in the Dark: This is a book that I read quite a few years ago that has always left a big impression on me, it's a historical novel about a family that has a bunch of dark secrets and how the son discovers them and this leads to an emotional distance developing between himself and his family that he can never fill gap without destroying his family in the process. I don't recall ever seeing anyone else talking about this book so I think that makes this book very underrated.
3. Linger: While Shiver the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series was fairly popular when it first came out it always seemed like the sequel books in the series were something that people never cared much about and well Linger the second book in the series has become one of my favorite books of all time. I love Linger for being an interesting take on what happens after happily ever after with the way it deals with how Sam feels now that he's no longer has to become a wolf but still has to deal with the trauma he endure because of him being a wolf before. I loved being the ever self destructive Cole St. Clair and I loved the relationship that he develop with Isabel and I like Isabel getting more development after the first book as well. While this book isn't one I consider a hidden gem because no one read but because no one really gave this book a chance to be anything but yet another paranormal romance that came out during a time when it seemed like almost every YA book that was coming was one.
4. Sinner: This book is the fourth book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series and since it came out much later than the first three books of a series I feel like a lot of fans didn't read this book because they were done with this series by the point this book came out but this book is surely worth revisiting the series for. This book is one that is about Cole and Isabel living their lives in LA and since their stories were pretty unfinished at the end of the original trilogy this book is a welcome addition to the series.
5. The Looking Glass Wars Trilogy: This series is my personal favorite retelling of Alice in Wonderland and it's also one of the retellings that I hear the least about which is a shame because I really liked how they played around with the story and gave the series a much better leading romance and villain than any other retelling ever has.

Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

                            The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight Review
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is about Hadley Sullivan who is on her way to her father's wedding in England to a woman that she never met and is also partially responsible for her parents marriage so she's understandably not looking forward to the wedding. Hadley ends up missing her plane by just a few minutes which means that she has to take the next flight over there which leaves hours after original flight did and will make it very hard for her to get to the wedding on time. Hadley ends up meeting a British boy named Oliver who is going back home because of a family event that is the next afternoon and the two of them end up hitting it off with each other rather quickly and develop mutually crushes on each other very quickly.

The majority of this book is really about Hadley coming to terms with the fact that she still does want her father in her life even though he his actions have hurt her and her mother and seeing that even though her father does have a whole new life he does still want her to be part of his life even though it doesn't always feel that way. Hadley also has to accept that her father's new wife isn't actually a bad person but is in fact quite nice even though it's easier for Hadley to not see her that way. While I don't think the story about Hadley accepting that her father is remarrying is a bad one I was expecting a love story not a father-daughter which is really what I got so I was disappoint by the lack of romance although what little we did get of the romance was very nice there really wasn't enough of it to justify the incredibly romantic title that this book had.

Overall this was a pretty good book that was more of character study of Hadley and her relationship with her dad than a romance which is something that I didn't I would get out of this book and leaves me wondering on why this book had romantic title when it's primary relationship wasn't even a romance. Please tell me your thoughts on this in the comment section below.

TV Review: Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

                                 Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo Review
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok joo is about a college student named Kim Bok joo who is the ace of the weightlifting department and her biggest dream is to win a gold medal in weightlifting. Bok joo is fine with not being seen as a woman by anyone at the start of the series since she only cares about fulfilling her weightlifting dreams until she meets a doctor named Jung Jae yi who she finds herself falling for at first sight and she then starts making excuses to spend time with him while hiding the fact that she is a weightlifter since she feels he couldn't see her as a woman if he knew about her weightlifting. Bok joo eventually discovers that Jae yi's brother is Jung Joon hyung who is swimmer who goes to the same college of her and used to go to elementary school, Joon hyung likes to seek out Bok joo to annoy her but also truly enjoys spending time with her and admires her for her weightlifting abilities. After Joon hyung finds out about Bok joo lying to his brother about who she really is, Bok joo swears him to secrecy.

Over the course of the series it becomes more and more obvious that Joon hyung likes Bok joo as more than a friend even though him and Bok joo seem to remain oblivious to this fact. As time goes on Bok joo realizes that Jae yi is never going to see her as a woman so she decides to give up on her one side love for him and Joon hyung helps her through this time by being there for her as a friend while she struggles with letting go of her feelings for Jae yi and about whether or not she truly loves weightlifting anymore since it was no longer bringing her happiness. In the end Bok joo returns to weightlifting and some time after Joon hyung confesses his feelings for her, she realizes that she also have feelings for him.

Overall I really enjoyed this drama the two leads where good characters that built a relationship that you couldn't help but to root for. I also really liked most of the supporting characters in this drama as well even though I didn't mention them above. I think this series is sweet and romantic which makes it a very fun watch.

Movie Review: Ocean's 8

                                                               Ocean's 8 Review
Ocean's 8 is about how Debbie Ocean(Sandra Bullock) who has just been released from prison puts together a group of woman to steal a necklace that is worth 150 million dollars. The first person that Debbie recruits is Lou(Cate Blanchette) who is a long time partner with Debbie and they end up putting the rest of the team together which includes Rose(Helena Bonham Carter), Amita(Mindy Kaling), jeweler, Constance(Awkwafina) a pick pocket, Nine Ball(Rihanna) a hacker, and Tammy(Sarah Paulson) a fence who has worked with Debbie and Lou in the past. The plan involves stealing the necklace off of Daphne Kluger(Anne Hathaway) a vapid actress, at the Met Gala.

Overall this movie was a lot of fun to watch the characters were interesting and it was fun to see all of them come together to pull off the theft. This movie was a good heist film it was fun and interesting to watch and over all had a light feeling to it thought there were a few twists in the movie they didn't end up changing too much about how you think that this story is going to play out in the end. Please tell me your thoughts on this movie in the comment section below.

Book Review: The Gathering

                                                      The Gathering Review
The Gathering is set in the same universe as The Darkest Powers series and this book is about a girl named Maya who lives in an isolated town in Canada that is made up entirely of employees of the Saint Cloud research company. Maya is adopted and part Native American or Canadian(it's a bit unclear as to which one) and she feels drawn to nature and has a special connection to animals and a strange birth mark of a paw print. While Maya believes through out the whole book that the Saint Cloud research is all on the up and up I don't believe that for a second because this organization remains me of the organization from The Darkest Powers series.

Maya reluctantly forms a connection with the new boy Rafe who has recently moved to town with his older sister and as they get closer Maya discovers a lot more than just romantic feelings for Rafe. Rafe reveals that his sister is a skinwalker(a shape shifter) and that believes that himself and Maya may become skinwalkers in the future and that there is a possibility that their able to become this because of experiments that was done to them by the Saint Cloud group and that there is a chance that they could become stuck in their animal forms if they don't get some answers soon.

Overall this was a pretty good book it had interesting characters and the idea of what Saint Cloud group is up to is an interesting one but since Maya trusts so completely in them there is really no answers on that front. While this book does make me want to read the next book in the series it's more because the book feels incomplete rather than having to know what happens next since the book left me on a cliffhanger like The Darkest Powers series books did and overall I just felt like The Darkest Powers series had a much clearer plot, intrigues and more interesting cast of characters as well as a much better handle on the fantasy elements.

TV Review: The 100: DNR(4.09)

                                                    The 100: DNR(4.09)Review
  • I like that Emori doesn't believe that anyone is coming back for them after how she was treated by the others last episode.
  • I liked that Raven assured Emori that the others will come back for them because Raven is too valuable be left behind although they would leave Murphy behind.
  • I like that Raven got a vision where Becca told her how she could use the rocket to survive in space rather than in the bunker.
  • I like that Illian is preparing the ground for those who will survive the radiation in the future that will need to use it for farming.
  • I like that Illian sees no point in fighting now that the world is going to end in just a few days from now and I dislike that Octavia wants in on that fight.
  • I like that Jaha tells all of the ark people to get ready to go to the bunker because that's where they will be able to survive what is to come and that it's likely that all of them will survive.
  • I find it sad and a little scary how even with the chance of survival within grasp that Jasper is still planning to die and is convincing other people that this the better option, I understand that he truly believes this and isn't doing this out of malice but it still comes across as a but disturbing.
  • I like that when Clarke found out that their people double crossed Roan and where planning to kill him that she warned him of the attack that was going to happen against him.
  • I like that Clarke still had Roan's trust because she saved him and that this led him to be willing to talk with Indra and her people about all three of their people sharing the bunker together.
  • I liked that when Clarke said that they would need their Chancellor at the meeting that Roan told her that she would be the best person to have at that meeting because no one would be better than her at convincing people that hate each other to come together in order to survive.
  • I'm sad that Harper seems to be giving up hope on things since their going to have to fight yet another war in order to survive in the bunker now.
  • I feel bad for Monty when he mentions that it seems that spend their last days wasted is common among the people that he cares about since Jasper has given up on life quite awhile ago and Harper now can't seem to find it in herself to fight another battle.
  • I think it was a bit harsh of Monty to call Harper a coward but I get why he did it because he wants her to fight to survive.
  • I find it interesting and worrying that Raven will die if she states down on the ground but she might have a chance to live if she goes into space.
  • I like how when Emori figured that the others weren't coming back that Murphy kept telling her that they would find a way to survive somewhere else without the others help and I liked that even if his options weren't good ones that Emori was comforted by his words at least a little bit.
  • I think it's ridiculous how Roan and Indra's people want to go to war for the bunker while they could all easily share it.
  • I like that since Clarke now has nightblood that she wants Indra'a daughter to make her the commander so that she can prevent a war from happening.
  • I liked that Jaha, Bellamy, Monty and Others tried to get Jasper, Harper and the others to leave with them so that they can survive.
  • I liked that both Bellamy and Monty were against blowing open the doors since the others could be hurt by that.
  • I liked that Bellamy pointed out to Jaha that in the past he sent children down to die on the ground and now he's demanding that they live and I like that Bellamy points out that the only difference this time around is that they get to make a choice for themselves. I like that Jaha allows them to make that choice in the end but I also get why Monty is against that.
  • I like that when Monty asks if Bellamy would give up if Octavia was in there that Bellamy tells him that at least if she was in there he'd get to say goodbye to her.
  • I liked that Octavia at least attempted to avoid the fight but I disliked that she ended up killing Illian's friends and deciding that's who she is.
  • I like that Roan figured out what Clarke's plans once he found out that a new commander will ascend and that he used for he knew to stop Clarke's plans. I like that Roan decides that they should have a conclave rather than a war to settle their differences because it would mean less of their people will die.
  • I like that Bellamy asks Jasper and Harper if they'd change their minds one last time before he leaves and that Jasper asks him if he wants to stay and Bellamy tells him he's not a quitter and I like that Jasper thanks him for understanding.
  • I find it sad that when Bellamy tells Jasper May we meet again that Jasper tells him they won't.
  • I like that Monty ended up staying incase Harper or Jasper changes their minds at the last minute because he wants them to still have a chance at survival and I like that it seems like Harper has some doubts about her decision.
  • I like that Miller and Jackson came back for Murphy, Emori and Raven but I was sad that Raven decide to stay but I understand why she did it since she doesn't have any chance at really surviving if she goes with them.
  • I like that Clarke tells Bellamy about the upcoming conclave and I like that Bellamy points out that there at the biggest disadvantage since they can't use guns, I hope that Octavia showing up at the end of the episode means good things for them.
Please tell me your thoughts about this episode.

Movie Review: Wild Child

                                                          Wild Child Review

Wild Child is about Poppy(Emma Roberts) a spoiled rich rebellious girl who is sent to a boarding school in England after she pushes her father too far and she of course doesn't fit in there and doesn't really try to since all she wants is to get expelled and go back home to her friends. After some time Poppy's roommates agree to help get her expelled since she's clearly miserable there and so Poppy and the other girls end up coming up with schemes to get her expelled. While Poppy and the girls scheme they end up becoming close to each other and the girls end up becoming better friends to her than the one she has back home. After bonding a bit with her roommates Poppy starts to doubt whether she really wants to go back home but when she accidently starts a fire it seems like she won't have a choice in whether or not she can stay in the end.

Overall I enjoyed this movie even though it doesn't have the strongest story or characters it was still a movie that I had quite a bit of fun watching. The movie is also one of those that is both cheesy and it's easy to see where the movie is heading the entire time that it is going on but to me that doesn't make the movie bad just not great. Please tell me your thoughts on the movie in the comment section below.

Book Review: Why We Broke Up

                                                    Why We Broke Up Review
Why We Broke Up is a story that is told through a break up letter that a high school student named Min writes to her ex boyfriend, Ed, in which she explains in great detail why the two of them broke up. Min goes over the events in their relationship that both lead to her falling in love with him and the small things that stacked up over time that made it clear to her in hindsight that they were never going to last in the long run because they're just too different and they couldn't bridge the gap to make those differences matter less. It seems to me the reason why Min and Ed weren't meant to be was because they had pretty much nothing in common with each other and no matter how much they tried they were never going to be able to enjoy the things that the other loves with their whole heart even though they both did put some effort into doing so, Min more so than Ed. The other underlying problem in their relationship was that there were things that Ed would do that Min really hated that she should have called him out for doing when they happened but since she was too gone for him at this point she didn't even though the things he did in those moments really did upset her and caused a bit of a rift between the two. In the end there was a much more obvious reason as to why they broke up in the end but that even did lead to Min realizing a lot of smaller things that really bothered her in the past that happened before that point which is really what this book is about.

Overall I thought this was a pretty good book is written in a different style and it a lot of nice artwork in it which makes this book stand out from other ones. I liked the idea that this story was based off of and I felt like the characters felt really even though I didn't really enjoy them all that much in the end. Please tell me your thoughts on this book in the comment section below.

Movie Review: Alex Strangelove

                                                   Alex Strangelove Review
Alex Strangelove is a Netflix original movie about a male high school student named Alex Truelove(Daniel Doheny) who has been putting off having sex with his girlfriend Claire(Madeline Weinstein) for the past year despite her being more than up for it and the fact that he's sure that he loves her. Alex feels like the two of them have to have sex soon now because everyone else in his life thinks it's weird that he doesn't feel like they should yet because he wants it to be special so the two decide to have sex in about a week or two. At a party about a week before the two are going to have sex Alex meets and bonds with a gay guy named Elliot(Antonio Marziale) and the two of them have a connection with each other which leads to Alex questioning if he's really straight.

The second half of the movie mostly deals with Alex trying to figure himself out when it comes to his sexuality and whether or not he's really ready to face the truth of it head on or not. At times Alex is very much in denial about who he is which causes problems for him and those around him but in the end he is able to be honest with himself and those around him which ends up making life better for everyone involved in the long run.

Overall I really loved this movie it was light and sweet while still dealing with very real emotions and struggles that the characters went through. I thought that both the characters and the relationships in this movie were very well done and got me invested in the story. Please tell me your thoughts on this movie in the comment section below.

TV Review: Witch's Court

                                                          Witch's Court Review
Witch's Court is about Ma Yi deum an ambitious prosecutor who cares more about winning cases and getting media attention than she does about the victims of the crime that she is suppose to be fighting for. Early on in the series Yi deum ends up revealing that her boss indeed to harass a female reporter after she finds out that even if she covers up his crime she still won't get the promotion she wants so she ends up standing up for the reporter for entirely selfish reasons and than is reassigned to a special task force that deals with sex crimes. Yi deum is very upset to be transferred there because no one really moves higher up in the ranks after being assigned there so she starts off her time working there with a pretty bad attitude. While working there Yi deum ends up being partner up with Yeo Jin wook who is fairly new to being a prosecutor since he had previously worked as a psychologist which is one of the reasons that he cares about the victims of the crimes they investigate well being so much. Yi deum and Jin wook having such different views on what the job entails means that there partnership is off to a bit of a rough start but the two do end up learning from each other and end becoming very close and caring with each other.

The main on going plot of this series deals with how there is a politician named Jo Gab soo who has been committing sex crimes among other crimes for at least the past thirty years. One of Gab soo's victims happened to be Yi deum's mother who tried to submit evidence against him twenty years ago which led to her being kidnapped by him. Yi deum has been searching for her mother ever since she disappeared which is part of the reason she cares so much about getting media attention is because she hopes that her mother will see her on tv and come and find her. Since Yi deum has no idea about what happened between her mother and Gab soo she really doesn't even know where to start looking so it takes her awhile for the plot on how they try to find evidence of Gab soo's crimes and how they can take him down to really start but the ground work for it is laid out from the start.

Overall I enjoyed the show, I thought that cases were quite interesting and I liked the main characters although I really wished that they spent a bit more time on developing their relationship in the second half of the series because I feel like the show was a bit over taken by Gab soo who is a character who while necessary to the story isn't one that anyone really enjoys watching. Please tell me your thoughts on the series in the comment section below.

TV Review: School 2017

                                                           School 2017 Review
School 2017 like the other entries in the School franchise spends the series dealing with issues of a variety of students who are in the same class. Our main character in this series is Ra Eun ho a student who doesn't study well and has a tendency to get into trouble but is very good at drawing and is determined to achieve her dreams. At the school there is a mysterious figure called X who causes trouble for the school by playing pranks and revealing all the injustices that take place at school and one Eun ho stumbles upon X in the teacher's office and she ends up being accused of being X. Eun ho is tasked with the job of finding out who X is afterwards in order to clear her name but she ends up helping with X's plans instead since she believes he stands for justice.

Eun ho ends up developing a friendship with Hyun Tae woon who is the son of the Chairman of the school which allows him to get a way with things that other students wouldn't, he doesn't have good grades either and has a bit of rebellious attitude. At first Eun ho doesn't like Tae woon much but after she gets to know him better she learns that he isn't the person she assumed he was at first and the two of them end up becoming very close and partners in a way. After awhile Tae woon realizes that he has a crush on Eun ho so he confesses to her and while she takes awhile to realize her feelings she does accept his confession in the end.
Another character that receives a lot of focus in this series is Song Dae hwi who is the first ranked student in the class who comes from a poor background. Dae hwi feels like he has to spend a lot of time helping out Kim Hee chan a rich student that is ranked second in the class because he needs money in order to afford extra classes and counseling that are vital for getting into the top rated school that he needs to get into to succeed. Dae hwi spends a good part of the series feeling like he has to do things that he doesn't want to do for Hee chan because he believes that he needs him to succeed even though doing those things eat away at him. In the last part of the series Dae hwi is able to finally pull himself a way from Hee chan and to reconnect with an old friend and make new genuine friends which helps him to become a much happier person.

There is also a plot thread about how Tae woon and Dae hwi used to be very close friends but aren't anymore because of what happened surrounding the death of their best friend and how they didn't understand or approve of the other's actions around that time. This plot was clearly made to try and recapture the magic of Nam soon and Heung soo's relationship from School 2013 and while I really do enjoy the plot in this drama as well it still doesn't hold a candle to that relationship because there wasn't enough time devoted to Tae woon and Dae hwi's relationship and they just don't have the same amount of chemistry that Nam soon and Heung soo did. Even though it didn't compare to what came before it, I still did love the relationship and was happy to see the two reconcile and become friends again.

Another plot thread dealt with a quiet student named Seo Bo ra who feels like the deck is stacked against her so high that there isn't any point in fighting for herself when other students try to make them take the fall for her. Eun ho ends up reaching out to Bo ra and this helps her to find her voice again and to believe that she can fight for herself again now that she has a friend by her side.

Overall I really loved this series for all the different characters, stories and relationships that it had in it even the ones that I didn't mention in this review. There are so many things to love about this series that I think watching it is well worth your time. Please tell me your thoughts in the comment section below and what series in the School franchise is your favorite.

Book Review: Turtles All the Way Down

                                          Turtles All the Way Down Review
Turtles All the Way Down is about a high school student named Aza who suffers from some form of an anxiety disorder which keeps her stuck in her head most of the time worrying about all the different ways that she could catch C.diff which it's somewhat implied that this is what her father died of suddenly when she was younger. One day Aza ends up being convinced by her best friend Daisy that she should try to reconnect with her childhood friend Davis who's rich father had disappeared recently and the police are offering a hundred thousand dollar reward to anyone who has information on how to find him. Davis is happy to see Aza again even though he knows that she most likely is only talking to him again because of what happened to his father and Aza finds that she actually does like spending time with Davis even though she can't understand why he would like to spend time with someone who is as stuck in her own head as she is.

Aza ends up dating Davis for awhile and while it seems to work okay as long as they're just talking to each other she finds it hurt to enjoy holding his hand or kissing him even though part of her desires to do those things with him because all she can think about is how many germs are being spread through that action. In the second half of the novel Aza also ends up getting into a fight with her friend Daisy about how they can't really understand how the other sees the world but they end up making up and being a little more aware of how each other thinks about things. Things between Aza and Davis don't seem to work out because Aza can't really date someone in the normal way and she doesn't want Davis to date her and hope that someday she will get better.

Overall a I really enjoyed this book the characters really stood out and I was invested in them and the relationships that they formed with each other. I thought that the writing was good and really let us get to know what it's like to be stuck in Aza's head with her. Please tell me your thoughts on this book in the comment section below.

TV Review: Just Between Lovers

                                                       Just Between Lovers
Just Between Lovers is about how Ha Moon soo and Lee Gang doo who are survivors from when a mall collapse thirteen years before the series started and how they are still dealing with the trauma that comes from what happened that day in different ways. Moon soo doesn't remember anything about the accident since she lost her memories of that time due to a head injury but since her younger sister who was also at the mall died that day she is suffering from a lot of guilt and her sister's death ended up destroying her parents marriage and damaging her relationships with her parents in different ways. Gang doo who was the last person to be rescued from the mall collapse is haunted by memories of what happened since he was the down there for nearly a week and spent several days with a dead body which is why he still suffers from nightmares and hears voices in his head that tells him he doesn't deserve to live well. Gong doo also received a pretty bad leg injury from having a piece of rebar stuck through his leg which well he can walk is something that still gives him trouble to this day.

Moon soo who works building small models for architect ends up being asked to work for the company that is rebuilding on the sight of the mall collapse which is something that she is understandable weary to be apart of considering what she went through there. Gang doo who hears about the construction makes sure that he works on the site and ends up destroying the memorial at the site which he gets found out for doing by the architect but he isn't arrested for since the architect thinks it would be a good idea to have someone like Gang doo around so that he doesn't over look something and that ends up causing another accident to happen in the future. Moon soo and Gang doo end up running into each other around this time and Gang doo ends up recognizing her from that day which makes him interested in her but she doesn't remember him at all and at first finds him to be rude but after awhile starts to see him as a good person.

As time goes on Moon soo and Gang doo end up spending more time together and learning more about each other and finding that they like each other and that being together is somewhat healing for them. When things first seem like they are going well in their developing relationship Gang doo starts to pull away from Moon soo because he doesn't actually believe that he deserves good things and thinks he'll ruin her in the end so once she figures out what he's doing she has to work hard to convince him otherwise.

Overall this series was really good it had a great character driven story about the leads overcoming their past traumas by falling in love and putting the past behind them. There were also a ton of great supporting characters in this series as well who all had their own storylines that I found myself caring about as well. This series also had some great performances by the leads as well which made the already great writing even better. Please tell me your thoughts about this series in the comment section below.

Book Review: Literally

                                                          Literally Review
Literally is about a girl named Annabelle Burns who has had a pretty perfect life so far but this starts to change after an author visits her creative writing class and the author tells her that she's writing Annabelle's life. Annabelle's life starts to get out of her control when her parents announce that they are getting splitting up and a new boy in Annabelle's class named Will seems like he's completely perfect for her and the two of them keeping getting thrown together in very contrived situation which makes Annabelle question just how real Will actually is.

Once Annabelle starts to suspect that her life is part of a YA novel she does her best to resist following along with the plot that the author has set up for her and makes her realize that she wants different things out of life than she thought she did. Annabelle starts to realize that she has feelings for her brother's annoying friend Elliot who is so not the kind of guy that Annabelle feels like she should fall for but since she wants to rebel against the author she feels drawn to him in a way she normally wouldn't be.

This book had a great premise to with the main character discovering that she is a fictional character but since Annabelle doesn't really spend a lot of time questioning whether or not she's really real and she really isn't treated all that badly by the author so it's just that the concept isn't dealt with as interesting as it could have been. The book ends up being about mostly about Annabelle getting to decide who she wants to date rather than really having the story address issues of agency over her life in general, I actually think that Will's character spends more time trying to break free of his character mold than Annabelle's does and that ends up making his character more interesting.

Overall this book was a light and fun read that had a really great premise behind it that could have been dealt with in a more interesting way. If anyone thinks that the premise of a character finding out they are fictional is an interesting one I would recommend watching the Korean drama W: Two Worlds which deals with the same concept but in a much more interesting and darker way than this book does. Please tell me your thoughts about this book in the comment section below.

TV Review: Shadowhunters: Iron Sisters(2.06)

                                       Shadowhunters: Iron Sisters(2.06)Review
  • I liked that the episode opened up with showing us who the iron sisters were and what they do before we meet them later on in the episode.
  • I like that Jace and Clary are trying to figure out were the rune she used last episode came from since they have no idea where it came from.
  • I don't understand why Jace thinks it's such a bad idea to tell Izzy about the rune that Clary created because there's no way she would tell the clave about it which is why I can understand not telling Alec since he might tell the Clave about it since it's legally what you should do.
  • I'm glad that Raphael agrees to wipe Simon's mom's memories about him being a vampire.
  • I like that Clary tells Izzy that she's sorry that she stabbed and I like that Izzy told her that she didn't need to say sorry since she saved her from a demon.
  • I like that Clary asks Izzy to join the mission to visit the iron sisters because she wants to be able to do something to defeat Valentine since he's the reason why her mom is dead.
  • I like that when Aldertree suggested that Izzy spies on Clary that she is firmly against but sadly she somewhat agrees that because she's craving more yin fen.
  • I like that Simon called Clary to tell her what happened at home and I like that Clary is still upset that he and Luke weren't allowed to come to Jocelyn's funeral. I like that when Clary was worrying about Luke still not showing up that Simon promised that he would find her.
  • I like that Magnus sends Alec a fire message that tells him he has an emergency in order to get Alec to come over because he knows Alec is hurting and is working around the clock to avoid his feelings. I like that Magnus suggests that they go on a date now because it's important to make time for the important things.
  • I like that Maia also wants to find Luke and that she reluctantly agrees that Simon and her can go look for Luke together.
  • I like that when Simon started rambling that Maia asks if he always talks this much that he tells her that he does only when he's nervous and she asked why he would be nervous that he says that it's his natural state.
  • I liked that when the iron sisters were doubting that Clary was really one their side since she's Valentine's daughter that she tells them that she wants to defeat him more than anyone since he killed her mother and experiment on her brother.
  • I like that when Magnus tells Alec that he's not much of a beer drinker that Alec tells him he's not much of a drinker at all.
  • I like that we get to see Alec and Magnus go on their first date together which was fun to watch.
  • I like how Simon and Maia tell each other about their awkward experiences with being a vampire and being a werewolf and bond over that.
  • I don't find it surprising at all that Alec has never been in a relationship before but I also understand why Magnus finds it surprising since he probably hasn't been someone's first relationship ever before.
  • I was glad that Clary was able to pass the test for being free demonic energy but I was sad that Izzy failed the test because of the yin fen which she didn't know was demonic.
  • I was glad that one of the sisters told Izzy how dangerous yin fen is and that is not something that will ever heal someone.
  • I liked that Alec told Magnus that he didn't date partially because he didn't want to feel like something was wrong with him and I like that Magnus tells Alec that there is nothing wrong with him or with being inexperienced.
  • I find it funny how when Magnus said that he had 17 exes which Alec thought it was no big deal then he thinks he means 17 hundred then 17 thousand which Alec clearly thinks is an unfathomable amount of exes.
  • I like that it turns out that Luke was the one that taught Maia how to control herself which is why she's so loyal to him.
  • I find it frightening that when wielded by an angelic being that the soul sword could wipe out the entire downworlder population.
  • I like that Clary trust the Iron sister who is Luke's sister with asking her about her new rune that she couldn't tell her much about.
  • I like that Simon is able to talk Luke down when he's in wolf form by talking about a memory of the two of them along with Clary and Jocelyn going camping.
  • I like that Alec and Magnus decide that they want to give their relationship a go regardless of how different they are or how many people they have or haven't been with.
  • I dislike that Aldertree basically blackmailed Jace to leave the institute but I like that he came to Magnus's when he needed a place to stay.
  • I like how Simon and Maia tell Luke that they need him to come back with them and I like that he agrees after Maia tells him to draw strength from his loved ones.
  • I dislike how Aldertree acts like he didn't do anything wrong when he gave Izzy yin fen which is clearly not true.
  • I dislike that Luke sister killed her fellow iron sister because it seems like she is loyal to Valentine.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: Nightmare Teacher

                                                    Nightmare Teacher Review
Nightmare Teacher is about how when a new teacher comes in to teach a high school class and starts convincing students that clearly desperately want something to come down to the counseling office to have private sessions with him. The teacher ends up using supernatural means to give the students exactly what they want whether it be to get back old friends, have as many chances as they need to win a fight, everything they write to become reality, the ability to absorb more knowledge better and more quickly or be even more pretty, and then tells the students that they can keep getting what they want as long s they sign a contract with him. The students end up violating the contract somehow or want out of the contract and then they end up trapped in their own nightmares.

The class president Kang Ye rim along with her maybe boyfriend Seo Sang woo start to notice that something is happening in there class once they start noticing odd things happening with their classmates and that there are empty desks in their classrooms. Over the course of the series Ye rim becomes more and more sure that something is making her classmates disappear and it has something to do with the new teacher and the counseling office, since everyone's memories are erased each time someone fails to complete their contract it takes most of the series for her to figure out what is happening to her classmates.

Overall I really liked this series, I enjoyed how each two episodes were centered on one character that we get to know really well pretty quickly and I liked seeing how things ended up unraveling very quickly in the second half of their stories. I enjoyed the concept of the series that dealt with characters getting exactly what they want and then once they get it they figure out that they didn't actually want it and that something else was really more important. Please tell me your thoughts on this series as well.

TV Review: The 100: God Complex(4.08)

                                              The 100: God Complex(4.08)Review
  • I liked that while Raven, Abby and Jackson were all shown to not feel right about testing the nightblood while Clarke knows that they have to do it in order to find out if they can survive with it and I like that Emori and Murphy don't feel the need to questions the morals behind this decision at all since if it lets them survive that's all that matters in the end.
  • I was sad that it looks like the nightblood solution isn't going to work but since there's still ten days before the death wave comes I'm not surprised that they haven't found the solution yet.
  • I like that Jaha was shown giving a funeral for those who died from the black rain the day before.
  • I liked that when Bellamy saw that Jasper was leaving camp on his own without a med tent that he went with him because he knows how dangerous it is out there and is worried about Jasper dying even if Jasper doesn't share those concerns.
  • I like that it looks like there might be a different bunker that the doomsday cult had that Jaha is intent on finding that could save them all.
  • I like that since the mission to find the flame keeper in order to find the bunker requires thinkers rather than fighters that Kane and Jaha chose Monty to go on the mission.
  • I felt sad for Harper when she came to see that Monty was leaving for a mission and it was clear that she didn't see a way for either of them to survive the death wave so it's clear she doesn't like the idea of them spending anymore time apart.
  • I like that it looks like Abby might be able to find a way to use nightblood as a solution still but I dislike that they're going to have to find a new person to test it on.
  • I was really worried when it was revealed to everyone else that Emori lied about who the guy that they tested the nightblood was and I hate that they're thinking about testing it on her but I liked that Murphy tries to stop them from doing it to her but sadly all that does is getting him locked up along with her.
  • I like how Jasper tells Bellamy that it's pointless to feel guilty about every bad thin you've done in the past when in a couple of days their all going to be dead and that he thinks that they should spend their last days doing whatever the hell they want.
  • I like that Bellamy doesn't really get Jasper's point of view of nothing mattering because everyone's going to die because Bellamy is trying so desperately to make sure as many people as possible will survive while Jasper is welcoming death which I think is something that Bellamy now sees is the reason behind Jasper's behavior.
  • I like that Raven is against the idea of them testing nightblood again because she sees what happens when they fail to basically just be murder that is ultimately pointless.
  • I like that Luna is flat out refusing to let them use her blood to do anymore testing with nightblood because she doesn't want to be the cause of anyone's death again.
  • I liked that Raven points out that taking bone marrow from an unwilling Luna is similar to what Mount Weather used to do.
  • I liked that Kane pointed out to Indra that the radiation doesn't care which side your on so keep up the war now doesn't make much sense.
  • I like that Indra's daughter is able to lead them to the temple which is where they believe the bunker is.
  • I dislike how Indra kills all those guys when they could have gotten through without killing anyone but I understand the logic behind killing them since if there is a bunker there they wouldn't give it up if they were still alive. I like that Monty points out to Kane that their going to think the sky people were behind the killing since Indra used Monty's gun.
  • I like that Roan told Clarke that she was born to lead because she doesn't back away from things when it gets hard and I like that Clarke tells him that it's always hard, I like that Roan tells Clarke how they have to do this so that they'll know that they did everything they could to ensure that their people live.
  • I like that Jasper is able to convince Bellamy to join the party for a little bit and let someone else worry about saving the world for once.
  • I liked that when Emori told Murphy that he should pretend to be okay with what their doing to her so that he doesn't give them a reason to make him the next test subject, that Murphy tells her that he will kill Clarke if she lays a hand on Emori.
  • I like that Murphy begs everyone he comes in the room to take Emori away not to go through with the testing and I like that when he was begging Clarke that he told her that he loves Emori and then threatened to kill Clarke if Emori died.
  • I liked that Clarke ended up putting the nightblood in herself and then told everyone that they will be testing her.
  • I can't blame Abby for breaking the radiation machine because she had a vision that showed her that the nighblood wouldn't work so she couldn't let Clarke get inside it.
  • I like that Monty figured out that you had to burn the seal in order to turn it into a key so that they can open the bunker which is one that can save them all this time and I like that Indra order her army to hold the temple.
