Lol, this week its been challenging but for the most part of the month i did watch fair amount of shows and movies across the board.


I look forward to relaxing in May and catching up with a ton of movie laziness!

Now I know where to look. I've seen many recommendations; however, a few I wasn't aware of.

Yes its the new popular show on netflix that's all over social media discussions.  I watched the first episode and honestly i was conflicted because what he did and what the woman did weren't all that different as far as keeping animals in cages, they both charged money for people to see them sort of advertising themselves just a tad differently.  But i do need to watch the rest of it to have a better perspective, obviously.


Oh god yes, watch it all. It gets bat shit crazy

Fleabag.. for sure sometime this week i'll be watching.

If anyone has Hulu, a must watch is the oscar winner of last year's  "Parasite" a korean movie.
Amazing story, its simplicity of no frills, no epics yet the way the story is presented and told, just blows the mind.  And what the director said during one of his acceptance speeches was (paraphrasing), Tear that wall of subtitles and you will  discover fantastic foriegn movies.  So true.

I did watch few epidoes of Ahavati recommendation of korean show called, Crash landing on you on Netflix,   its a comedy romance type of show.  
I was fascinated on their heightened expression reminding me just a toned down version of telenovellas, the modest version i suppose lol
but to peek into a culture with their history of north and south and the differences was enlightening.

It's really a good one if you can make it through the subtitles.

Lol. Sokay. Layla,  he does not represent my kind in any way shape or form. I can not stand the show personally and was irked the same way.

He (the tiger king) is a rare breed Redneck....okie I think.

My hillbilly is Ozark, Missouri Arkansas border, and you should hear my vernacular slide when I cross that state line.

Thanks Socks, I will definitely check it out.


Last night i finished watching "Bohemian Rhapsody" on amazonprime for free.  I highly recommend it.  Fantastic movie on the band Queen and its lead singer Freddy Mercury.  The actor playing him did an amazing job.

Another one i started watching (then fell asleep midway, story of my life lol)
on Amazonprime a movie called "Anna" its about a russian killer.  I was immediately drawn to the character and the story.  I will finish watching it tonight and i will come back to drop in a review.
