Weekly review: iZombie

I think this is one of the most clever and original shows recently. It takes two overly done tropes and puts them together, which makes it a very interesting show. For those of you who don’t know what it’s about, I’ll give a bit of background. Liv Moore is a doctor in training with a bright future and a smokin hot guy, until she goes to a party and becomes a zombie. However, as long as she has a steady diet of brains, she can stay sane and not become a lumbering rotting monster. She starts working for the coroner’s office at the Seattle PD, and with the help of her also hot boss who knows about her zombie-ness, she eats the brains of murder victims and gets flashbacks to find out how they died. ย She starts helping out a Homicide Detective with cases, while also dealing with the whole, you know. Zombie thing.

Ratings:

Drama:ย ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”

There is some great drama. Liv and Major, Ravi and Peyton, and other… relationships. The whole on-again off-again thing with LITERALLY EVERYBODY is really fun, and there’s jsut enough to keep it interesting, but not to much that it becomes a drama show. Also i super duper ship Liv and Major.

Action:ย ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซ

Whoop, fair amount of action in this show. You know. Cop show and zombie show. I really like the action, as for the most part, it’s good, suspenseful action. The zombies in their psycho-haven’t-had-brains-in-a-long-time are cool looking, and also Liv kicks major(‘s) ass.

Cheese:ย ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿง€

I feel like there actually isn’t that much cheese in this show? Like, It’s pretty good? There’s some amnesia later on, which is annoying, but i think it’s really good.

Story line:ย ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ“ˆ

It’s good! There’s your episode-to-episode story arcs, and the overarching plot line with Blaine and Major and Vaughn and all of them. They did this well.

Overall:ย ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

This is a good TV show. It’s got a great balance of drama and action, it’s not super cheesy, and the plot lines are interesting.

This is totally something you should watch. Season 1 and 2 are on Netflix, and it’s so much fun! Liv is super great, and it’s awesome.

P.S. Just a clarification: These emojis aren’t the amount of that thing. It’s how good that thing is. Like, there isn’t much action in iZombie, but it’s good action. Does that make sense?

Weekly Review: FOTM Club

As actually none of you know, I receive a nerd jewelry subscription box called Fandom of the Month Club. It’s really cool. I decided for the weekly review, I’d review the box. It’ll have it’s OWN EMOJIS TOO! AND PICTURES I TOOK MYSELF! SO FANCY.

Anyway. This month’s theme was POKEMON. I know. Weird. I guess when they started designing it Pokemon GO was stillย all the rage. (it’s not now.) It’s cool, hypothetically. Well, you’ll see.

Quality:๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Cuteness: ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

How much I would wear them:ย ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘

Overall:ย ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Yeah. The box wasn’t great. Although I’d put that mostly on the fact that NOBODY PLAYS POKEMON THE CRAZE IS OVER.

Anyway. Let’s go through the pieces.

First thing I see:

postcard-and-magnet

I immediately knew it was Pokemon. (They didn’t exactly make it hard to tell.)

Initial reaction: Ohh…

The second thing I saw was the muslin bag.

bag

I’m just glad they didn’t put “gotta cATCH EM ALL”

I like it. It’s pretty. I guess.

The next thing (or things I guess) I saw were these hairclips.

hairclips

They’re the three first Pokemon and Pikachu.

Initial reaction: when the fuck am I gonna wear these

Next, we’ve got these earrings. I think these are about the best of the lot, tied with what’s next.

The head sticks out your ear, and the body and tail are coming out the back. I’d wear these, totally. My main complaint is that the body and tail are notย actually connected to the head, they can just slide off when the back of the stud is off. I’m gonna lose those bits. It’as a given.

Last, but not least:

img_1715

It’s a compact mirror! I think this is really cool. It’s like you open it up and OOO ITS NOT A POKEMON IT’S YOUR FACE (WHICH IS JUST AS UGLY AS A POKEMON sorry ignore that you’re beautiful I love you)

all

So what do you guys think? Cool? Not?

My overall opinion: It was not my favorite box. It was my least favorite box. I like some things, some will never see the light of day again.

Also even though I didn’t like this one the company who makes it is bae and run by a kickass nerd mom gorgeous queen so buy her stuff.

My sunglasses are still broken,

P.S. Okay so in the pic with all the things there’sย something that says F(Pokeball)LLOW ME TO THE GYM I chose not to include it because I’d like to know who in their right mind would want that IF YOU WANT IT MESSAGE ME IF YOU WANT PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING BUT THE BAG AND EARRINGS MESSAGE ME

P.P.S. Sometime I’ll show you my all-time favorite box.

P.P.P.S. I lost one of the lenses to my sunglasses

Weekly Review: Supergirl

Supergirl is one of the latest in a long string of superhero shows. This one focuses on the technically older cousin of Superman, and her plight as she defends National City and makes a name for herself outside the shadow of her cousin. It also shows her balancing human relationships and finding love.

Official Summary:ย At 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escapes doom on planet Krypton to find protection on Earth with the Danver family, where she grows up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learns to hide the extraordinary powers she shares with her cousin, Superman. Now an adult living in National City and working for media mogul Cat Grant, Kara finds her days of keeping her abilities a secret are over when super-secret agency head Hank Henshaw enlists her to help protect the city’s citizens from threats. Finally coming into her own, Kara must juggle her new responsibilities with her very human relationships.

Ratings:

Drama:ย ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”

There’s like some tension between Kara, James, and Winn, but really not that much. I mean, there’s a bit about her dating life, and family drama, and businessย drama, but not a ton. Maybe there will be more in the next season and/or later episodes, but there’s only a bit now.

Action:ย ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซ

This show is SO MUCH ACTION. It’s not the best action, but there’s a lot. For example, there was this scene I just watched where Supergirl fights this alien *gasp* and she, like, punches and hits and lasers and all that shit. I mean, it’s cool. But it’s not high-quality action. Know what I mean?

Cheese:ย ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿง€๐Ÿง€

Whew, no shortage of cheese here. A lot of overly dramatic lines and scenes, things that could have been avoided, and things that are not very logical or likely to happen. Ex. She would have stopped sending out electricity when she got wet. The first few episodes were heavier on the cheese factor, but it seems to be getting better.

Storyline:๐Ÿ“ˆย ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ“ˆ

In the very first episode, they introduced something that perfectly sets them up for individual storylines with a big overarching plot. It’s not very creative, i.e. Revenge, Spite, Aliens with abs. However, they’ve done some of these things in a pretty good way that makes the show fun and entertaining.

Overall:ย ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I think this is overall a good show. It’s certainly not great, it’s very cheesy at times and the action is low-quality. Also, not everybody is that hot in real life. Like, if I worked at CatCo, where Supergirl has her day job, I would be so happy. I really like Kara, also. She’s awkward and goofy at times and v confused on how to be a superhero, but her heart is in the right place and she has a good head on her shoulders.
