So I practiced a great deal of self-control today. I went with my brother and cousin to gamestop and was looking at the games when i hear one of the guys behind the counter say ‘hey you know what show you should watch?’ to the other one and i’m like oh, okay nice maybe i’ll check out this show he’s talking about, i’m always looking for new shows.
the he say. ‘it’s called the 100. it’s on netflix’
and when i woke up from my stroke my brain was already running through all the reasons that no, gamestop employee, do not watch that. but i stayed out of it because if i started, i would have ended up looking like a crazy person and going to small town jail and sharing a cell with that guy that’s always texting and tractoring
oh i have an idea, a netflix hole. on netflix there should be a hole you can click a button to throw shows in that you’re never going to want to watch, and it would be a lot easier to look through all the other movies you may want to watch
I’ve been thinking a lot about the Annie Dillard quote “How we spend our days is how we spend our lives” because one of my professors likes to reference it a lot in class. For me, November is usually a month where I kind of lose sight of that and just settle into a funk of watching Netflix, blowing off work, and not creating nearly as much as I should. I’m trying really hard to work on that and not get paralyzed by how overwhelmed I feel. I hope you all can too xx
i can never stress enough how you all should be watching crazy ex-girlfriend.
i gather it’s for free on the cw app
i gather netflix uploads the episodes weekly in most regions
it has everything tumblr claims to desperately want and yet its fandom is made of like three people.
drop the “sexist title” bullshit and try to actually watch: the entire show is about deconstructing the “crazy” world by dealing with a young woman with untreated anxiety and depression. yes, anxiety and depression.
and yet the writing is so clever for some reason it feels bittersweet rather than intoxicatingly sad
it’s not about romantic/sexual relationships. there are those, but they’re just a means to explore the female protagonist’s life and journey.
you get anti-heroes. because you don’t have to be a man making drugs on a cable drama to be an anti-hero. you have to be deeply fucked up and that’s what these characters are.
it’s the most diverse cast i’ve ever seen.
one character gets a number on coming out as bisexual. the word is said multiple times. you don’t like shows shying away from it? fucking watch crazy ex-girlfriend.
they sing and dancetheir ass off, and well, and showcasing meta commentaries on storytelling and how even music videos are made. they do pop, rap, rock, old hollywood musicals, you name it. they do everything and they’re brilliant at it. the soundtrack’s online. the music sheets too.
it’s just overall brilliant. it won the cw a golden globe and two emmys. rachel bloom is out of this world

Guys, pals, my dudes.
Do yourself a favor and watch 3% on Netflix. It’s up since 25th November so probably not much have heard about it.
But it’s so fucking good.
It’s Netflix first brazilian show and it’s great.
“The show is set in a future wherein people are given a chance to go to the "better side” of a world divided between progress and affluence in the Offshore, and devastation and poverty in the Inland, but only 3% of the candidates succeed.“
I want you guys to watch the crap out of it and show that shows not made in the UK or the US are fucking amazing too because this show clearly is!
- 8 pansexual characters, a gay character, a lesbian character, and a transgender character. And none of them are the “ gay one ”. They just happen to be gay.
- 6 POC in the cast ( 3 of them being women )
- Complex and flawed characters
- AMAZING AF PLOT
- Awesome af writing in generation
- The filming process takes a lot of work since they have to move from city to city every time they finish from each city
