this show is the best thing on television

The Good Place is even better than the praise that it gets, and I’m still worried that so many people are sleeping on it and not recognizing one of the most absolutely game-changing comedies on television today.

It’s hugely risky to make a show that’s so reliant on philosophy and morality and to not only go in hard on that, but to still be funny, and to take risks with its world and characters and change things up in such huge ways so often…

Everyone involved in the making of this show should be showered in Emmys and enshrined in the television hall of fame - they should make a television hall of fame specifically for this show, okay.

    some self-care/mental health tips for the upcoming school year

    with school coming soon or already starting for some people i figured i’d share some of my tips for a healthier lifestyle. i know in the past i’ve struggled so much with being good to myself once school starts, both mentally, emotionally, and physically!

    keep a clean room 

    i know how hard this is. i’m absolutely awful at it, even in the summer but it really makes the biggest difference. coming home to a mess when your life is already stressful and messy enough just makes things worse. i know when i have a clean space i’m way more productive and at peace with my situation.

    take a break from social media

    just doing this every once in awhile makes the hugest difference. social media is a wonderful world but it’s easy to get caught up in how everyone is doing things without you or having more fun or how someone’s prettier or whatever. it’s not worth it. i’ve learned that just deleting the apps for even a few hours can make my mental state 10x better. it’s important to realize that while people are out doing things all the time, you can never be as fun as all the 162 people you follow combined.

    don’t be afraid to invite people out

    one of the biggest things i struggle with is being social, simply because i overthink inviting people to do things with me too much and just wait to be invited by someone else instead. remember that even if someone says they can’t do something, it’s not the end of the world. at least you opened up a possibility!!! by being someone who invites others to do things, people will feel more appreciated and like you actually want to hang out with them! but also always save time for yourself as well!

    create a self-care routine with motivation

    by giving yourself some type of reward to wash your face, brush your teeth and shower, such as only watching your favorite tv show afterwards, it will feel a bit easier to accomplish the tasks that seem simple but can be terribly hard, especially if you suffer from depression. i’ve learned that combining things into one task also makes it easier, such as once you get in the shower, do everything. wash your face, brush your teeth, shave, all in the shower. it makes self-care so much easier.

    get outside, stay out of bed

    laying in bed is the best thing ever, i know, but it can be so easy to get in there and never get out. this is my biggest bad habit. i feel more productive even just sitting on the couch. my bed is like a black hole of lost motivation. go outside for twenty minutes a day if you can. sunlight makes things a little better and staying inside all day does nothing for you.

    do one thing that scares you everyday, big or small.

    i’m someone who has struggled with social anxiety for years now, but i’m slowly getting better because i’m making a conscious (and very terrifying effort) everyday. this won’t work for everyone, i know, but it’s helped me a little bit. i try to challenge myself everyday to do one thing that scares me, whether it’s asking someone to do something after school or agreeing to get coffee with a friend you’re not super close to yet, or even just making conversation with someone next to me in class. don’t push yourself too far but don’t make zero effort either.

    cut the negative language/mindset

    anytime you have a negative thought find a reverse positive. even saying “i’m not happy with how my hair looks but my ass looks great in these jeans” is better than saying “i look awful today”. stop the constant internal bullying! think of it this way, if your best friend said the things you say to yourself, how would you feel? you’re your own best friend, so cut the shit! compliment yourself like you do your best friend. complimenting myself and finding things i find beautiful on my own body even once a day has increased my confidence exponentially. a negative language towards yourself leads to a negative mindset.

    find someone who motivates you

    if you need motivation to work out, study, anything, find a buddy. having someone to do things with and hold you accountable makes a world of difference. this summer i got together with a friend and made a deal that we would work out 2-3 times a week. it worked so much better than if i had just made that goal for myself because she was always there to text me to ask to workout when we needed to but i lacked the desire. and i did the same for her. now we actually both got a job at a gym together this fall and are working out consistently because we have that mutual  accountability with each other! plus just having someone you enjoy seeing makes doing the hard task more fun!

    accept your individuality

    you don’t need to look like society’s ideal of beautiful. there’s millions of types of flowers, and just because one kind is pretty to someone, does that make all the others ugly? no. there’s tons of species of dogs too and they all look totally different. is a poodle ugly just because a golden retriever is cute? NO. your individuality is you. everyone is beautiful in the very own unique way. don’t try to look like someone ellse. your beauty is not measured by how perfect your features are. 

    drink some fucking water

    and eat some food too

    understand that a bad week doesn’t mean a bad life

    we’re all going to go through those weird ass time periods where it feels like everything sucks and nothing can go right. accept that although it’s pretty bad right now, it won’t be forever. 

    good luck with this school year everyone! hope my tips help even just one person. take care of yourselves, kiddos.

    reasons everyone should be watching lucifer:
    • it’s about the devil, who one day went “fuck this. i’m over hell. i’m moving to LA” honestly that’s enough reason to watch it 
    • it’s not like every other cop show that is on tv at the moment. the supernatural twist always makes things bizarre and fun
    • it’s funny, like genuinely funny. it has it’s serious and emotional moments but most of the time it’s pretty lighthearted and doesn’t use Death™ to “intrigue” viewers
    • one of the best characters on the show is a pansexual demon who starts off as a pretty emotionless character and soon turns into the biggest softy who would do anything for the people she loves
    • lucifer is a bisexual dork who isn’t evil at all and just wants to be loved and accepted 
    • chloe decker’s eye roll thingy
    • the show does not slut shame their female characters
    • 5/9 of the main characters are poc, 6/9 are female (as of season 2)
    • the female relationships in this show are fab!! there is no jealousy, just love and random bar fighting
    • ella lopez… i can’t even describe this dork you just need to witness it 
    • the mother-daughter bond between chloe and trixie is so great. chloe is such a good mom, such a good cop, such a good person. 10/10 recommend just watching for chloe decker
    • deckerstar. whether it’s just a brotp or an otp, you will love their dynamic
    • all the characters are super different, and are all great. even some characters who may not be your fave at the start, you will end up appreciating them. 
    • mazikeen’s special love for trixie decker will make your heart melt. no one would dare mess with that demon’s little mars president 
    • lucifer’s constant “dad” jokes or comments about god are great
    • the music is also great 
    • please just watch there are more reasons but i think i got the main ones. lucifer is great

    okay okay okay, so i might be a lil tipsy but hear me out lads I have THE BEST idea for a tv-show. it’ll be called “Just Friends” and every week, it will do a parody of a queerbaiting used in some other film/show - but with straight people. Watch all the straights lose their minds when in my Pitch perfect inspired episode Bella and Clive flirt while singing together in the shower, naked, and then at the end of the episode we conclude that they are just the best of friends.

    And tune in the next week for my Once Upon a Time themed episode, where Emily and Reggie share custody of a kid, risk their lives for each others’ happiness and generally go around giving heart eyes and holding hands. And then at the end of the episode Emily says “Reggie you are such good platonic pal!”

    so who wants in on my BEST TV-SHOW EVER, can you imagine the complete outrage over the obvious sexual chemistry from all the straights, ah it’ll be so beautiful, who wants to join me for some straightbaiting? also pls feel free to add other episode ideas below

    Spongebob is a tv show about a closeted gay young man getting the attention of an unreceptive crush (Squidward) while also maintaining a performative crush on Sandy (known lesbian) anyways by the end of the series he will have come out and gotten over his thing for Squidward (which he was unknowingly only harboring because Squidward actively disliked him and Spongebob was setting himself up for failure) and form a committed and mutually beneficial relationship with Patrick, realizing he’s been in love with his best friend f years and Patrick (bisexual) has felt the same but also felt as though he couldn’t compete with the high culture that Squidward possessed

    things you need to hear this exam season

    - don’t beat yourself up for struggling even if you’re doing your best
    - you are smart and capable so don’t let laziness stop you from achieving your potential
    - stop self sabotaging. that tv show can wait. take a break but don’t become your own obstacle to success. get shit done first
    - eating right, staying hydrated and sleeping well are non-negotiable. look after yourself
    - grades do not define you so be kind to yourself. but do your best and work hard for what you want

    • Me,every day during summer: I'll meet my friends every day, go out, workout, learn new hobbies, meet new people, eat healthy, sleep enough, don't spend to much time in front of my computer, start living life at its best
    • Also me, every day during summer: *counting down days until hiatus ends, while making tumblr edits and rewatching all seasons of my shows*

    fictional-portal  asked:

    dare i ask....what is critical role?

    oh boy, okay, so THIS IS GONNA BE LONG, HEADS UP

    Critical Role is a series on Twitch produced by Geek & Sundry where (famous) voice actors Laura Bailey, Travis Willingham, Taliesin Jaffe, Marisha Ray, Liam O’Brien, Ashley Johnson, Sam Riegel and Matthew Mercer play Dungeons & Dragons. Sometimes there are guests players and they are all always AMAZING.

    They are all very close friends (some are spouses and married) and had this D&D campaign even before it started being broadcasted. Matthew is the Dungeon Master. Everyone is always in-character during the games, thanks to their talent, the voices and acting and RP is TOP NOTCH and you cry and laugh a lot.

    The episodes can be up to 4 hours long sometimes, and there is 110 episodes so far (roughly the same length as a TV show with 7 seasons). It’s very intimidating, but you can also just listen to it and not watch them.. although (and i’m not even biased when I say that) watching Laura Bailey react to everything is like, one of the best thing about CR. Also the physical acting is sometimes important! The show is being uploaded in podcast form tho!

    It’s broadcasted every Thursdays on Twitch, and then the episodes are added to Youtube on Mondays.


    Who’s in the Party aka Vox Machina (some things will be left unsaid to avoid spoilers):

    Vex’ahlia (Vex) played by Laura Bailey *harp music*

    Half-Elf Ranger. Went from Neutral Good to Chaotic Neutral, and currently is Chaotic Good. Vax’s twin sister. She has a bear named Trinket whom she loves more than anything in the whole world (tie with Vax, probably). She winks a lot and flirts with everybody. SHE LOVES MONEY. A good person but sometimes does questionable things like lying and stealing. Self-worth issues. Lowkey bisexual, only kinda confirmed off-screen.

    Vax’ildan (Vax) played by Liam O’Brien

    Half-Elf Rogue. Chaotic Good. resident emo boy, but also a Soft Boy. Vex’s twin brother. Very emotional. A bit obsessed with Death. Depressed. Loves to prank Grog, and would die (literally) for his twin sister. Bros with Grog and Scanlan. Loves to braid hair. An actual bird. Canon bisexual.

    Grog Strongjaw played by Travis Willingham

    Goliath Barbarian. Chaotic Good or Chaotic Neutral? VERY TALL. Has an intelligence of 6. Pike’s best friend. Thinks water is poison (but not anymore, CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT). The cutest murder machine. Fighting is like yoga for him. LOVES women and brothels. Also ale.

    Pike Trickfoot played by Ashley Johnson

    Gnome Cleric. Chaotic Good. The Mom friend. Grog’s best friend. Loves the goddess of Light and Healing, Sarenrae, whom she is a cleric of. She will swing her holy mace in your face if you threaten her friends. An actual angel?? Played by an actual angel? Plays only when she isn’t busy on the set of Blindspot.

    Keyleth played by Marisha Ray

    Half-Elf druid. Neutral Good. Percy’s best friend. Basically The Avatar. Most powerful member of the party. Vox Machina’s moral compass, she is 90% of their impulse control. Very wise but very socially awkward. (Spoilers) She jumped off a cliff, turned into a goldfish and died that one time. She’s okay tho. She loves the twins. She loves all of her friends tbh. Gets arrested a lot??. Scared about her future. Lowkey bisexual, kinda confirmed off-screen.

    Lord Percival Fredrickstein Von Musel Klossowski de Rolo III (Percy) played by Taliesin Jaffe

    Human Gunslinger (Fighter). Neutral Good. Keyleth’s best friend. A little bit haunted. Obsessed with contracts and demons tbh. THE SMARTEST BOY. Build a lot of impressive stuff. Sometimes he makes jewelry for the party out of sea shells or dragon scales. Talks fancy. Loves explosions. Has PTSD.

    Scanlan Shorthalt played by Sam Riegel

    Gnome Bard. Neutral Good or Chaotic good? Unsure. Probably Chaotic Good. Bros with Vax and Grog. Really fancies Pike. A player. Has a lot of issues but hides behind humor. The funniest and most talented. Is often naked. Very loyal. A complex character. He doesn’t like Trinket. Canonically not Straight. Probably Pan??

    Taryon Darrington (Tary) played by Sam Riegel (for a while)

    Human Alchemist. Alignment?? He’s a good boy. A REAL DIVA. Rich. Super smart. Has an automaton named Doty who writes down his adventures. Vex’s best friend. Bros with Percy. His arc was brief but he started as a pompous brat and ended being a soft and loyal member. Scared easily. Loves being an adventurer. Canonically very gay.

    Beloved NPCs, played by Matthew Mercer (but only some of them because Matt plays over 100+ NPCs)

    • SHAUN GILMORE. Human. The prettiest and (canonically) gayest shopkeeper in all the lands. Actually an incredibly powerful sorcerer. Had a crush on Vax and vice versa.
    • Allura Vysoren. Human. Very graceful and smart. Amazing arcanist (wizard). Vox Machina’s number one emergency contact tbh. She loves Kima, in a gay way. Canonically bisexual.
    • Lady Kima of Vord. Halfling Paladin. She serves the deity Bahamut, The Platinum Dragon. Small but will kick everyone’s ass.  Sassy. Will kill you if you prank her. Butch Icon. Loves Allura very much. Canonically very gay.

    /!\ SPOILERY NPCs /!\ :

    • J’mon Sa Ord. Nonbinary. SO ELEGANT. Barefoot at all times. Kind of tired of Vox Machina’s shit, but is still fond of them nonetheless. Spoilers x1000: Actually a (good) Dragon. The coolest sovereign. I’m in love.
    • Cassandra De Rolo. Human. Percy’s sister. Is running a kingdom while her brother is out and about shooting at bad dragons. NEEDS A FUCKING NAP. LET HER SLEEP, MATT.

    Characters came and went (Tiberius Stormwind played by Orion Acaba for example) and some guests come back more often than the others, but this is getting way too long so let’s stop here.


    Honestly, CR is the best thing I’ve ever watched. I never laugh as much as I do in front of a TV as I do in front of CR. Same for surprise and tears and stress and everything a show can make you feel. It’s truly something else.

    “What is Critical Role” video. A good and fun recap.

    You can watch Critical Role HERE

    Good luck!

    IGN - “For those looking for a new flavor of superhero show, Marvel’s ‘Runaways’ definitely delivers” 8/10

    FORBES - “Fantastical is to be expected, but the weirdness of this show is next level for Marvel, and it’s fun”

    NERDIST - “Runaways brings heart and great characters to the superhero genre. There’s something exhilarating about seeing these characters come to life, and the casting of the teen heroes is utterly fantastic” 5/5

    THE MARY SUE - “Runaways impresses with its wonderful cocktail of earnestness, melodrama, and mystery. Can’t wait to see more”

    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY - “There’s a deep vein of dark comedy here, a satire that deepens the more recognizable superpowered-teen melodramaB+

    HOLLYWOOD REPORTER - “If everybody’s got to have a superhero show, then it looks like HULU has a good one”

    DEN OF GEEK - “Marvel TV is due for a win. Is Marvel’s ‘Runaways’, Hulu’s first foray into Marvel adaptation, it? The short answer: yes” 4/5

    TV LINE - The Breakfast Club meets X-Men with a splash of Stranger Things thrown in, Marvel’s ‘Runaways’ is the richest, best-realized hero drama of the new TV season” A-

    WE GOT THIS COVERED - “When the show hits that sweet spot it’s an intriguing, weird, funny, and addictive addition to the Marvel world”  8/10

    THE DAILY DOT - “Runaways arrives on the scene amid a crowded comic-book lineup across the TV realm, but it manages to shine as it juggles a superhero show and a teen drama worthy of its beloved source material”

    IIf Netflix or any studio should learn something is that Percy Jackson and The Olympians is where the money is right now. The fandom is starving for a loyal adaptation, we don’t care if it’s a movie, a show or a cartoon, we want something. The Lighting Thief musical proved that betting on this fandom will not be a mistake, the recording of the musical (an off-broadway musical) broke records in pre-sales (in a record company that has records of very successful musical) not only that but the day it was released they reached #1 in musicals beating Hamilton and Moana and even managed to be on the top 10 on Itunes, the success of the musical was so big it’s actually going on tour next year. 

    There is already a loyal fanbase, I’m talking about people who are from 15 years old to over 30 years old and grew with the books and would support it as long as is a loyal adaptation (and are starving for official merchandise). The saga is intended for kids so that only means the fandom would grow even more with the new fans. The saga has been a best seller for over 440 weeks, last time I check it was beating Harry Potter over how long it was on the best-seller list. 

    And if they think that shows with kids as leads would not do well Netflix already has very successful shows like A Series of Unfortunate Events (who also has Joe Tracz as a writer who also worked on the scrip of the Lighting Thief Musical), there is also The Worst Witch and while Stranger Things might not be a kids show is absolutely proof that you can find kids who are absolutely better actors than most of the actors playing teenagers in tv shows.

    Is absolutely disappointing that Fox fucked up what could have been a saga as huge (or even bigger because it has more books) than Harry Potter and that nobody is talking about reboots (when almost all the current movies or shows are reboots)



    Ok, actually… you’re kinda right. I mean, they just keep punching each other and we’re calling it “being in love”.

    Also when they were in the hospital in 6x09 and Theo said:

    You’re going first.
    That’s the only reason I’m with you.
    Because while they’re busy wrapping a whip around your neck, or shooting a hole in your head, I’ll be running the other direction.
    I’m on your side as long it helps me.

    I also think whatever happened to you, you deserved it.
    When the Ghost Riders find us, I’m not gonna do anything for you.
    I’m not gonna help you.
    I’m not gonna save you.
    I’m gonna do exactly what you would do to me.
    I’m gonna use you as bait.

    Oh, hang on a second.

    Didn’t they save each other from a ghost rider right after that?

    And isn’t this Liam saving Theo?

    Plus, in 6x15…

    Theo: Those two losers killed hunters.
    Liam: Who killed their pack.
    Theo: So what? I mean, Monroe’s gonna tear through anything standing between her and them. That means you, Lydia, Malia and Scott.

    Oh, and here’s Theo looking at Liam with heart eyes!!

    Theo: You made the plan.
    You wanted me to help.
    Liam: If I needed your help for anything, it’ll be so I get angry enough to kill you myself.
    Theo: You brought me here because that thing that came out of the Wild Hunt is affecting you, too.

    Not Scott, his alpha. Not Mason, his best friend. He choose Theo.

    What’s more, they’re such an amazing duo.

    All in all, despite all adversity & the political climate right now, these things were able to happen. Tv writers and film producers and web-series-makers took greater steps towards more authentic wlw representation.  I am utterly thankful, and can’t wait to see what queerness the next year brings. In the meantime, make the yultide gay, y’all.
