It's fun, light, and heartwarming. The perfect thing for the holiday season.
Stranger Things (2016– )LOVED season 1, liked season 2, was very disappointed by season 3
7 July 2019Warning: Spoilers
Season 1 was amazing. It was innovative, novel, entertaining, perfect. Season 2 went downhill for me, but I still liked it. Season 3 is an absolute mess. I don't think anything makes sense, and in my opinion, it tried to compensate for its lack of an actual plot with just throwing in a ton of violence that had not been in the previous seasons, and a ton of cliches, throwbacks to the 80s (which I did appreciate being an 80s child myself, but it's not enough to save the season). After being left wanting more after seasons 1 and 2, I found myself hoping during the ending credits of season 3 that they would just end the whole thing and not show any additional footage of a potential story of season 4, but, alas, they did. Here's to hoping they can get season 4 back to where the show was in season 1. Let's end on a good note.
The Village (2019)A bit cheesy but good
19 May 2019
I think because the show tries to tell too many storylines, it takes a bit to get involved in the stories or characters, but once you do, there are a lot of good and touching stories being told. At times it's so unrealistic it's borderline cheesy, but it you just get past that, I think it's a good and very entertaining show. I don't want to see it canceled so soon.....
Black-ish (2014– )Heartwarming, hilarious show
14 May 2019
I truly don't understand the bad reviews of this show. I have loved it since Season 1. It is funny and it deals with so many issues that are relevant today, not just about race, but about everyday family and life issues. To be fair, I think the show lost its way a tiny bit in Season 4 and there were many episodes that were more sad than funny due to the topics they chose to touch on, but Season 5 has got them back on track. I think it is by far one of the best shows today.

First of all, I love this show. I would give almost every other episode a 10. I love the cast, the acting, the cinematography. But, this episode was just too violent. Please don't go the way of other shows like Westworld or Game of Thrones that make it all about the gratuitous violence. I am most likely the minority, but the added gore ruins the show for me rather than making it better. I just don't think this show needs all of the blood to capture viewers. It has so much going for it without it. Other than this episode, I love this show!

Grown-ish (2018– )Gets better with every episode
24 March 2018
I am a huge fan of Black-ish, which is what led me to give this show a chance. The first episode doesn't do it justice; you really need to hang in there a bit to start to care about the characters. This isn't a family show the way Black-ish is, but it deals with a lot of important issues dealt with in college and young adult life. I think it's wonderful there is a strong, real young woman who is the lead. She's not perfect, but why does she have to be? No one in life is perfect, and I appreciate the show making the lead character very relatable to young women dealing with a lot of the same issues.
