For the Throne: Episode 1 Review

Welcome one and all to a new weekly (until it’s over) series on the blog: For the Throne. Any guesses as to what it’s about?

It’s pretty safe to say that Game of Thrones is a pop culture phenomenon. It seems like everybody in the world watches it. I am one of those people.

I figured that I’d give myself weekly content by writing these posts and since it’s the last season of the show, I also figured why not. These are going to be highlights of things from within episode rather than a summary of the entire thing. Or maybe it won’t. We’re testing the waters here friends.

As a warning, this entire series will contain spoilers. Not even gonna lie to you. Only read if you’ve watched the episode or want to spoil it for yourself. Don’t come cry to me if you read it and you get spoiled.

Dear Supernatural…

It took me a while to think of what to say. On March 22, 2019 Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins announced that after its 15th season, the hit show – my show – Supernatural would be coming to an end.

15 whole seasons (technically 14 at the moment), over 300 episodes. Everybody who’s a fan of the show knew that eventually this day would come. We just knew we weren’t going to be ready.

I didn’t even see the videos before finding out, one of my friends texted a group chat with me and another one of our friends asking us if we saw. Then I saw the tweets from the boys. And I don’t like being on my phone at work, but I was glued to my phone for a solid 30 minutes texting my friends and trying to cope with my feelings.

I am emotionally invested in this show. I don’t know how it happened, but it did. I was told ‘my condolences’ when I shared the link. It feels like I lost a part of my soul and I don’t know why.

This isn’t just any show, this is my show. So Supernatural, before you go, I have a few words to say.

All Aboard the Umbrella Academy Hype Train!

I can’t tell you the amount of times over the past few weeks that I was told to watch the Umbrella Academy. It seemed like everybody I talked to that knows me told me to watch it because ‘its right up your alley!’, which is weird and freaky shit. It came up in every conversation I had with my boyfriend since he finished watching it a coupe weeks ago.

Ladies and gents, on Tuesday March 19th, I finally caved. I bought myself a cheap (like $160, but on sale and compared to others it was good for me) TV after saving my pennies for a while, fully loaded with Amazon Fire TV already installed into the TV – all I had to do was install the apps that I wanted. I can’t watch things on my laptop, I get to distracted with everything else I can do on it, thus why it took me buying a TV to actually start watching it.

But that’s beside the point – I’m here to talk about the Umbrella Academy.

Higher, Further, Faster: Captain Marvel Review

Hello everyone!! It’s finally here. It’s Marvel’s first female lead film ever finally hitting the big screen – and fittingly enough on International Woman’s Day! Marvel knew what they were doing on that one for sure.

This movie has been highly anticipated and at first received some backlash for being pushed back a whole extra year. But now the day is finally here and we’re about to go in depth with Captain Marvel and I will give you all my thoughts and screams under the cut.

The Road So Far: Lebanon

I know I skipped 2, but to be honest, they weren’t that great anyway. It was a lot of the same shit and the self-hatred and self-sacrificing shit that we see every season from at least one of the Winchesters, mainly Dean.

But I couldn’t not review the 300th episode. It would be a sin. So here I am, literally writing this minutes after the premiere. (Or in the case of this intro before the cut, 45 minutes before the premiere. AAHHH!)

Will I love it? Will I hate it? Is John Winchester still an ass??

Let’s find out below the cut!
