And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be heroes, just for one day”

Hi! I noticed you watch like, TONS of great tv shows, and I usually find out by your tags and such, but do you have a list of recommendations, your top favourites?

I have so many favorites, so i’m just gonna make you a list of everything I can think of.

(I’ll put a * up if there’s LGBT content in the show, prominent or not)

Here’s a list of what I am watching right now/am waiting for new episodes of, in no particular order.. that I can think of:

  • The Fosters (Freeform)*
  • The Shannara Chronicles (MTV)*
  • The Bold Type (Freeform/Hulu)*
  • One Day at a Time (Netflix)*
  • Couple-ish (Youtube)*
  • Brooklyn 99 (Fox/Netflix/Hulu)*
  • Wynonna Earp (Syfy/Netflix)*
  • Supergirl (CBS/ now theCW)*
  • You Me Her (HBO/Netflix)*
  • Legends of Tomorrow (theCW/Netflix)*
  • iZombie (theCW/Netflix)
  • Dear White People (Netflix)*
  • Crazyhead (E4/Netflix) (might be finished?? idk)*-ish
  • Sense8 (Netflix)*
  • Grace and Frankie (Netflix)*
  • New Girl (Fox/Netflix)
  • Glow (Netflix)
  • Jane The Virgin (theCW/Netflix)*
  • Queen Sugar (OWN)*
  • Little Witch Academia [anime] (Netflix)
  • Dix Pour Cent/Call my Agent [French] (France 2/Netflix)*
  • The Tunnel [Half French] (Canal +/Sky Atlantic)*
  • Any Marvel TV show on Netflix except Iron Fist
  • Critical Role (Youtube)*
  • The Magicians (Syfy)*

Cancelled TV shows still worth checking out:

  • Agent Carter (ABC)
  • One Big Happy (NBC)*
  • Galavant (ABC/Netflix)
  • Faking It (MTV)*
  • The Get Down (Netflix)*
  • Terra Nova (Netflix) (it’s been cancelled for like 6 years idc fight me)
  • Pitch (Fox)

Ended TV shows:

  • Person of Interest (CBS)*
  • Orphan Black (BBC America/Netflix) (there’s only one ep left to air so i’m putting it there)*
  • The Legend of Korra [animated series] (Nickelodeon)*
  • Black Sails (Starz)*
  • Nikita (theCW)

Haven’t watched yet but despite being cancelled, I heard it was good so it’s on my to-watch list:

  • Rookie Blue (Global/ABC)* if i’m not mistaken
  • Warehouse 13 (Syfy)* if heavy subtext counts

There is so many I’m honestly probably forgetting a shit ton. Also note that my Netflix is French so TV shows available for me might not be available in other countries, and vice versa! Have fun!

Day 7: Favorite movie adaptation of a book

THIS THIS THIS THIS. Both are beautiful and well-done stories in their own ways. The book really makes you feel for Charlie; you get to know him so very well that you can’t help but want to be his friend and make everyone else around him understand him the way you do. And his parents & sister and his relationship with them is my absolute favorite aspect of the book… and while the actors chosen for their roles in the movie did a FANTASTIC job of playing them, I felt like that aspect of the book was pushed aside for other things in the movie.

However! THIS GODDAMN MOVIE IS INCREDIBLE. Not just by itself as a work of film, but as an adaptation specifically. It captured the essence and heart of the book. Probably due to the fact that the book’s author Stephen Chbosky directed & wrote the movie. Logan Lerman nails it. He is a cupcake. It is a heartwarming, funny, but also surprisingly raw and difficult movie.

Like I said though, it stuck to its source material. Some things were changed for the movie (like the importance of his individual relationship with his family), but it didn’t make the movie bad in any way, it just shifted the focus. By the end of it though you are still left with the same feeling and message as you are in the book.

Charlie’s relationship with his 2 closest friends is something that was much more fulfilling for me to watch rather than to read. I just couldn’t help but love them even more because they were real people in front of me.

Other than what i’ve said above, I don’t quite know how else to pinpoint why I think this movie is my favorite book-to-movie adaptation. If you haven’t seen it, please go watch it. I recommend it over the book tbh. <3

What is one book-to-movie adaptation you absolutely love??
