TV Series Review: Tiny Pretty Things

Tiny Pretty Things is what would happen if you take Pretty Little Liars and dump it in the world of ballet, where everyone hates everyone and friendship only lasts until the next role comes up. Competition is fierce in this ballet school, and Neveah, the main character, only got accepted because the star dancer, Cassie Shore, tumbled four stories down […]

TV Series Review: The Mess You Leave Behind

The Mess You Leave Behind is a Spanish thriller that is available for streaming on Netflix and consists of eight episodes. Raquel arrives at a new high school to teach literature to a group of students who are, without exaggeration, the worst behaved teenagers I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. They interrupt class, they have zero respect for […]

TV Series Review: You

I never expected Netflix would drop so many chilling thrillers around the Christmas season, but since I’m a huge fan of the genre, I say: the more, the merrier. “You” is the story of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl and woes her, and girl eventually falls in love with boy. Except that in this case, the […]

Movie Review: Bird Box

If you’ve been anywhere near the internet for the past few weeks, then you’ve no doubt come across “Bird Box”, the new Netflix thriller featuring Sandra Bullock. It’s an internet sensation, and has even stirred a new challenge for people to go outside blindfolded and try to find their way in the dark, something I heavily do not recommend and […]

TV Series Review: Perfume

“Perfume” is a strange series to release just around the holidays. Christmas holidays makes you long for fluffy, warm, feel-good series, and “Perfume” is anything but warm and fluffy, or feel-good. In fact, it’s quite the opposite: cold, chilling, and with the uncanny ability to create an acute sense of unease for anyone viewing it. Nadja Simon is a female […]

TV Series Review: The Frankenstein Chronicles

The Frankenstein Chronicles feels like a mix of Penny Dreadful, that delicious, creepy Victorian supernatural drama that ultimately was one of the best shows to ever grace my TV screen, and Ripper Street, another atmospheric, tense historical series set during the Jack the Ripper murders in London. Here, in The Frankenstein Chronicles, viewers are treated to a mix of murder […]

TV Series Review: Re-Mind

The concept of Re-Mind is strange and eerie, but the TV series delivers this concept really, really well. With thirteen episodes in the first season, and a Netflix Original, you’re ready for at least a few nights of entertainment with this rare gem. I’m always amazed by how well Asian series manage to captivate their audience, and establish a mystery […]

TV Series Review: The End of the F***ing World

Ever felt like an outsider? Ever felt like you didn’t belong anywhere? That you were weird, strange…different? I’m pretty sure half of the teen population has ever felt this way. If you feel like this, or you have ever felt like this, then you should watch The End of the F***ing World, because it’s simply sublime. Tailored to those who […]

TV Series Review: The Frozen Dead

Lately, I’ve grown more and more fond of these Netflix mini-series, with six or eight episodes. I like how they take more time to tell the story than a movie would (with the series lasting about six hours total, whereas movies last only about two hours) so we get to explore the characters and their history more, and we get […]

TV Series Review: Manhunt: Unabomber

Manhunt: Unabomber is an eight-part TV series that you can now watch on Netflix. As the name suggests, it’s about the FBI’s manhunt on the so-called “Unabomber”, a mysterious individual who sent bombs through the mail, targeting universities and airlines in particular (therefore gaining the nickname ‘unabomber’). Now, I’m quite obsessed with reading about and watching TV series about serial […]
