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: 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 […]

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: Alias Grace

If I had to name my favorite TV series of 2017, I would no doubt choose “Alias Grace”, a miniseries based on a novel written by Margaret Atwood. Another series based on a Margaret Atwood novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is gaining a lot of popularity as of late, but don’t hesitate to try “Alias Grace” just because it gets less […]

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 […]
