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: Abducted in Plain Sight

It doesn’t happen often that when I watch a TV Series, I want to grab my screen and smash it to pieces. I can watch gruesome accounts of murders, and barely blink. I can see characters make the stupidest mistakes in the history of mankind, and just shrug it off. But what is so disturbing about the choices made by […]

TV Series Review: Sharp Objects

Sharp Objects is, hands down, one of the best series I’ve ever seen on TV. I can’t believe I missed it when it was first released, and I’ve only picked up on it now when scrolling through the offerings of HBO out of sheer boredom on a lazy Friday evening. The premise sounded intriguing, and the cover image looked a […]

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 Alienist

“The Alienist” is a mix of Jack The Ripper with Sherlock Holmes, and even has some remnants from Penny Dreadful. The atmosphere is gloomy and dark, as we expect from a show set at the end of the 1800s – the approach of the twentieth century, as the characters often describe their own time period in the series. Rather than […]

TV Series Review: Requiem

Requiem is the kind of rare gem that shows up on your Netflix feed every so often and that makes you jump in delight because it’s just so good. It’s a series that pulls you in from the start featuring eerie music, paranormal happenings, and a relatable heroine who is so flawed and so lost that you can’t help but […]

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 […]
