My Life Is an Unsuccessful Netflix Show

I don’t know what to call this feeling, but you know when you get a sudden realisation that this is in fact real life. Like you aren’t gonna start into a new season or a new episode of a show. You are just gonna start the next day with the same problems, the same things to think about, the same responsibilities blah blah blah.

It happened to me just the other day because I recently got a new job and the first two shifts have been great but then one morning when I was getting changed I saw the uniform and was like shit, I really gotta do this for a while now. It’s weird though because it isn’t like I hate the job, I mean, I literally only started it, but I just realised that I need to continue working. It felt like that had been an episode of my life and that I would move on from it and it would just not be mentioned anymore. But no, I have the future to “look forward” to.

That sounds mad depressing but like it’s just kinda weird for real. It’s almost as though I have become too “in the moment” that I forget there is anything outside of that moment. Now I’m not great for words so tell me if this makes any sense whatsoever, but I feel a bit unreal if you get me. Not as if I am a ghost looking down at myself, or as somebody watching a TV show of me, but like a VR headset. I know I’m in my body but then I realise that this is fucking life and that my actions have consequences.

Listen, I’m not doing anything bad if that’s what you are thinking. I’m not some sort of murderer who is now online like “whoops so I made a mistake”. It’s just like, for example, I signed up for a job, I got the job, and now I still gotta do it. Like it isn’t an achievement or level that I’ve unlocked or passed. This is quite literally real life.

When I say my life is like a TV show, it isn’t that I have a bunch of interesting stuff going on or any big plot twists. I’m quite literally the most basic bitch you’ll find. I’m mentally fucked, I’m blonde, blue eyes, not really pretty but not really ugly, chatty but also can’t start a conversation, that kind of situation your know.

Oh shit… I’m that one “main character”, not like the other girls, pick me bitch. Wow, I hate that but I swear I’m not trying to make myself sound like that. Wow… I instantly despise everything I say.

Anyways, I think what I tried to get across was that I don’t think my life is a series because it’s exciting or thrilling. I mean I’m no Kardashian (great show btw highly recommend and I’m not ashamed to say it). It’s just that I forget that this is real life.

That was a hectic wee post I guess. A little bit of a brain dump to be honest. I have been quite busy lately with all this bloody A level exams and shit. I’m really not even sure if this post made any sense but I’m hoping somebody understands me or can direct me to the closest psych ward? Lol, anyway, I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

To be completely honest with you, I didn’t have any high hopes for the movie when I heard it was coming out.

The Woman In The House Across The Road… | I’ve Watched It, But Should You?

I’ve been off this blog for a while now so I thought I’d keep you updated on what I’ve been doing. Fuck all, to be honest, but one of the things that have wasted my time was watching Netflix, or more specifically, that one with the fucking long name called “the woman in the house across the road from the girl in the window”. Don’t try to ask me if that is right or how I remembered that but that’s literally its name.

Advertisements

I’m gonna start off with why I wanted to watch it? I wasn’t going to honestly but then my sister and friends all came in one day and all asked the same question “what the fuck?!” And I get that now, but at the time I was confused. They had literally only watched the first episode as well so I was like what could be so weird about this show? Some of the things they mentioned were a cannibal, a crazy lady and fear of the rain. I understand those now but at the time I didn’t know how those could all link together into a good TV show.

Conclusion

I’m not going to lie, knowing the purpose of the movie now makes the show really good and hilarious (not the whole person eating a person bit but you get what I mean), but if you were to watch this expecting a great show with the one and only Kristen Bell, you would be pretty disappointed. So for those who haven’t watched it, go down to the “Newbies” heading below and I’ll not spoil anything for you, but if you’ve started watching it and have come here just to verify a few details, go down to the “Experts” section (But I am in no way an expert other than the fact I have watched the first few episodes). But first for a quick preview of what the show is about

Advertisements

Preview

“A heartbroken woman named Anna (Kristen Bell) is unsure of whether or not she witnessed a murder. She mixes alcohol with medications prescribed by her therapist, has frequent hallucinations, and suffers from a crippling fear of the rain (ombrophobia). Anna is ostracized by members of her community, including her new neighbours, and labelled “crazy” by the police. Regardless of whether or not she saw a murder take place, Anna takes it upon herself to find the truth.”

Newbies

At the end of this section, I’m gonna answer the question of whether or not you should watch it, but obviously, not everyone has the same taste in shows so I’ll give you my opinion so you can work it out for yourself. Or, of course, you could literally watch it yourself, but if you don’t wanna waste your time then keep reading.

Advertisements

You may have heard a few rumours such as it’s crap, or it’s a joke. I’ll tell you that it is a joke, quite literally. In other words, we aren’t laughing at it we are laughing with it. Basically, it is making fun of all the stupid stuff in crime movies and just movies in general. Like the main character is literally some divorced woman with a dead kid (no it isn’t a spoiler) and it’s hilarious some of the things she realises along with the narration of what she is thinking. You know how so many movies have the one relationship where it is just so cringy and it’s usually between the depressed neighbour and the single dad that moves in across the street? That is one thing that happens but they make it so funny.

Advertisements

If you didn’t know that this whole show was a joke you would literally despise it. You would literally chuck your phone out the window and wash your eyes out with soap, but knowing that this is just mocking every single basic show, it is so much better.

Advertisements

Like, the way that the child dies is just so ridiculous and maybe they dramatize a few things for dramatic effect, but it still works. Kristen Bell’s acting is literally top-notch. I think it’s kinda like how she acted in “The Good Place” but also not like that at all. It must have been so fun to make because it’s kinda crappy-good acting. There seems like little skill yet so much skill at the same time.

Advertisements

So basically, my answer to whether or not you should watch it is yes because it has a good plot but is also light-hearted and easy to follow. As long as you go into it knowing that it is a comedy and making fun of other movies then you will really enjoy it. Also, it may be worth adding that I have a very sarcastic, dark sense of humour so if you usually don’t get that type of stuff it may not be for you

Experts

If you are reading this I really hope you have watched the show or that you just love a good spoiler because I’m about to spill all the tea. Tbh I’ve not finished it but like from what I have seen I have a lot to say. But at the end I am going to tell you whether or not I think you should continue watching it, if you haven’t finished it, or if you have finished it, then this is just a little bit of fun and maybe you’ll watch it over again with a different perspective.

Advertisements

Let’s start with the fact that this is for sure a comedy and is for sure making fun of everything. It is basically as if every cringy part of a murder mystery was taken and put into 8 episodes. Luckily I started watching this with the knowledge that it is basically mocking other shows, and I’m glad I knew this because otherwise, I wouldn’t have watched as far as I have. My favourite part is just how ridiculous they make it, yet it works so well. For example, in the last episode I watched, Anna had just followed the English guy because she saw him carrying a heavy bag into the car and when she found him she asked to look in the bag and it was a fucking ventriloquist doll because he had to find a new hobby after his wife died. How fucking hilarious is that! Literally cackling by the end. And he is here like “I needed to do it for my daughter… Just, please… don’t tell anyone”. But it really does be like that in the movies. They’ll have a dirty little secret that they don’t want the world to find out about.

Advertisements

I think Kristen Bell’s acting is amazing as well because she makes it look like bad acting yet it takes such good acting to achieve that and it must have been so hard to not absolutely pee yourself every 10 seconds. Like whenever she tried to bring a literal casserole to her neighbour but it started raining and she literally passed out in the street. Or when she was with the dead wife’s sister and the sister was so sad and mysterious. I don’t even know how to describe it in words but you’ve seen it so you’ll know. She is basically that basic bitch character who seems like she has finally got her life back together after a big trauma, but she collapses every time she hears her sister’s name.

Advertisements

I have to admit that at the start of watching it I was kind of doubting whether or not this was actually a joke but then the one thing that kinda made it certain that it was a joke was the part when she was like…

“To get to the bottom of something, sometimes you have to remind yourself that if you don’t risk anything, you risk everything. And the biggest risk you can take is to risk nothing. And if you risk nothing, what you’re really doing is risking not getting to the bottom of something. And if you don’t get to the bottom of something, you risk everything.”

— AnnaThe Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the WindowSeason 1Episode 3

I just find things like that so funny and you may say I have a broken sense of humour, but you would be right… yeah. I have a sarcastic, very particular sense of humour so this was a great show for me, so definitely keep watching and remember that it is literally a joke. It isn’t supposed to be a serious thing or something like that, so remember that if you are not sure if you should bother.

Advertisements

But yeah I definitely recommend this show and you could even watch this show over your Easter holiday unless you are like me and have fucking revision to complete, then you can watch it instead of your revision as a bit of a laugh. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

If You Haven’t Seen These Shows, Don’t Talk To Me

You know, this title may seem harsh but like if you haven’t watched these I really do have to question your mental well-being and ask how long you have been living under a rock. Like, these shows are so elite that I had that empty feeling when it finished. You know when you get so attached to the characters that you feel like friends but then it ends and you have to face reality again. Well, that is how I felt with these shows. I also have to ask if anyone else feels literally comforted by some shows because of the people in it and your life could be shit but they are a constant in all the change and when the show ends you feel scared and sad they have left you? Just me? Ok.

Dead To Me

Dead to Me: Season 1 – Review | Netflix Comedy | Womentainment

I am pretty sure this one is a bit newer, as in released last year, but I only started watching it a month or two ago when my friend made me and then I forced my sister to watch it because it is literally the perfect mix of intense and fucking hilarious. The humor is 100% me and I die for it. It’s good as well because they don’t make stupid mistakes or unbelievable plots, like all of it makes sense and is well done and even though they have killed people, you feel bad for them. That’s kind of like another show I am gonna talk to you about in a second. What I also love about it is the length of it. Now you do get through it quickly which means it ends quickly so that’s sad, but like each episode is 30 minutes max which is perfect for me because I can’t be coping with any more no matter the show. For me, I couldn’t watch a 40 minute show, but I could watch two 20 minute shows perfectly fine you know. It just makes it feel like you are getting through it faster and every time a new one starts you feel refreshed. But no, if you want to watch a show that is
– sarcastic funny
– not long episodes
– murder mystery
– tense
– shocking
then you better fucking watch this. It literally shocked me because I thought it was gonna be boring as fuck but it’s actually funny as fuck! How the turns table.

Money Heist

Money Heist Season 5 Release Date, Trailer, Cast, Plot ...

I have to flex on you all real quick. I watched this in Spanish without subtitles because, you know, I’m all bilingual and shit. I am actually just learning Spanish but I understood most of it or at least enough to enjoy the show. At the beginning, I have to admit I was kinda sleeping on money heist cause I found it kinda boring and also wasn’t fully getting all the dialogue, but when I improved and paid more attention, I was loving it. I also have to address the fact they are taking their fucking time to release the new season. Like there really is no need because I’m getting sick of it to be quite frank with you. I am forgetting what it left of at. This is the one I was talking about in the paragraph above where you also are on the robbers team and you hate the police that are supposed to be saving lives and shit. A wee bit of role reversal. In the 4th season I think it was, and that bloody body guard tried to save everyone I was fuming. I grew an attachment to them all and I won’t give anything away but like they really didn’t need to off that one person. But if you like
– longer episodes but not like boring long
– good robbery story line
– tense
– guns
– role reversal
then this is the one for you. I wouldn’t say there is much humour and it is defo more tense, but it is defo top tear entertainment if you ask me.

How I Met Your Mother

The Value from How I Met Your Mother: Season 7 - Bearcat ...

The next couple of shows are gonna be basic as fuck but we have to address them because it would be disrespectful not to. This show is great. It has the whole “Friends” vibes and you feel like a family with them and you get familiar and comfortable with the show. It is great you know, but like, can I just say one thing. What the fuck? Like seriously, if the actors and the writing weren’t good for this then I would be wiping this show off because it’s utter shit. Like they stretched it out to the max because the dad really could have just said “i met her at so and so’s event” (I don’t want to spoiling anything) and then the ending when you find out what happened to the mother and you are like ok what the fuck. Like we really were not given a chance to know her. What I think they also should have left out or just cleared up was the fact that they always mentioned “your mother was there that day” but it literally doesn’t help out with the plot at all except for the room mates apartment. But, to be fair, despite all the shit I just said about it, it is a freaking awesome show and the actual episodes are amazing. Over all it is a banging classic and if you like
– “friends” vibes
– short videos
– older TV shows from the friends sort of time
– feel good
– comedy
– not a solid plot line but stays on track of a plot if you get me
then defo watch this. I would say I don’t have a way with words but I don’t know how to say it, just know that I mean it is a great show and if you haven’t watched it, you are uncultured.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia

Zito Media » It’s Always Sunny with Brie Larson

This one is also the same vibe as friends and how I met your mother as in it is a feel good, kinda older and just fucking hilarious. This one is perfect for all the people with a sarcastic sense of humor, me, because they really take it to the next level. I near piss myself it is so funny. I do kinda admit though that at the start I wasn’t really feeling it but then when I knew the characters more, I couldn’t get enough of it. They are all so weird but like so normal but like kinda like me but not at all. They are just perfect and relatable but I have also never done anything like them. Charlie and Deandra literally crack me up. The fact they always just hate Deandra no matter what she does literally kills me and it never gets old. It’s so funny even just thinking about it. Defo a must watch but you gotta get through the first bit because it is a little slower to get into. Defo watch this if you like
– friends and how I met your mother vibes
– sarcastic comedy
– relatable but also not relatable shows
– short episodes
– feel good
– not a big plot line but still a plot
– binge-worthy shows
So yeah, you better have heard of it and you better start watching it because you will regret not watching it. Like it is so funny and I got through it so quickly. I would gladly watching again.

Schitt’s Creek

6 Netflix Series That Are Worth Your Time | Kay Caton UK Blog

I feel so dumb for saying this, but it took me way too long to get the joke of the Roland guy. The characters name is Roland Schitt and I am so dumb for taking so long to figure that out. Also, quick trivia question. Why the fuck has the mum not been in more shows and movies since Home Alone because she is funny as fuck. Like I hadn’t seen her in anything for ages and it blew my mind to see her act this role. Her accent and everything about her is so funny. The way she says “behbeh” for “baby” makes me actually die of laughter. They are all absolutely awesome actors and are so perfect for every little part of the show. The episode where the shop got robbed was so funny. Like he really just gave him a gourmet meal to go. I haven’t watched it in a while so I don’t remember everything but I do know that you have to watch it if you like
– a new era of “friends” vibes
– shorter episodes
– sarcastic comedy
– over all comedy
– realistic
– feel good show
It is a classic we have to admit, even though it isn’t old. We also need to start a petition to get more shows featuring the Mum because she is a legend and the best actor. She was perfect for the role.

The Best Background Netflix Series

These rankings are definitely gonna start a fight but I mean this is my opinion so… go away. Also if you didn’t understand the title… go to school… I mean, it just means short episodes that you don’t need to concentrate on. Warning, you will get attached to these and the characters leading to a moment of emptiness in your life where you don’t know how to act. But don’t worry, you will find another series just as good. I am also going to make this fair by not adding in ‘friends’. It will always be the first place in my heart but like we gotta switch it up a wee bit ya know. So to build ✨tension✨lets start with number 10 :0

10. The Big Bang Theory

We are straight in with a classic. Can I just mention that you don’t have to be really smart or know anything about physics and stuff to watch this. In fact it actually makes it a lot better. It always seems like a comic book person kind of genre but really it’s just funny and good to watch when you can’t be bothered to watch long episodes or think at all for that matter.

9. Full house

You may be more familiar with the newer series of this called fuller house but I’m saying this one because, for me, the old iconic series are always better. They are so funny, different and kind of comforting for some reason. Yes the camera quality is similar to a Samsungs but we move, it’s fine. However, I do love the fuller house but yeah this better to be honest. Very heartwarming and you feel like a part of the family. Definitely broke my heart when it ended.

8. Good Girls

Ok, I have to admit, these episodes are like 40 minutes long but it is still one where you don’t need to concentrate. The actresses and actors are all literally hilarious and I love it so much. If anything, the long episodes are better because you would end up watching another anyways if they were shorter because they are too good. Like defo a solid plotline and I guess you have to concentrate a tiny bit but I mean it’s a solid plotline and never gets boring.

7. Brooklyn 99

Right so, so far I am literally contemplating the order of all of these but it literally doesn’t matter. They are all great. Anyways, you have definitely heard of this show unless you are a literally 50-year-old person with a 9 to 5 job and kids. But just know, after a long exhausting day, the kids are asleep, your old back is aching, you will be loving this show. Full of laughs. Lots of cool stuff, real-life stuff as well, but made numerous. 10 out of 10 do recommend. Also, I want to add that 50 years old isn’t old, like it was just the first number that came to my head so yeah 🙂

6. Santa Clarita Diet

This one can be quite hit or miss because my parents didn’t adore it, but bitch you better know I loved it. It is just so ridiculous but like they actually make it work. It has pretty big names too, like Drew Barrymore. Don’t even get me started with her but I literally love her so is such a great actress and seems like a genuinely lovely person. So yeah, by the off chance she will ever see this, hello…Anyways, but no it is definitely different but it is hilarious despite that. A must watch

5. Keeping Up With The Kardashians

Bitch I could write a whole book about the first season alone. Personally I have only seen the first four because that’s the only ones on Netflix (which is defo a problem) but THE AMOUNT OF DRAMA LITERALLY GIVES ME LIFE, like I literally thought my family had fights. I was wrong ahahaha literally Kim could drop-kick her mum off the roof and they would forgive each other. Of course they don’t instantly forgive the other person but eventually. My dad says they are ridiculous and it’s so bad… bitch you watch the bloody countdown so I think your opinion is invalid. It actually made me respect them more because you can see that they really do work for it and their lives are stressful. I mean I couldn’t be putting up with it.

4. Atypical

Right this one really does get you in the feels. I kind of didn’t really know whether to put it in the 
‘background series’ category because it is actually a serious, eye-opening topic. Like it talks about real stuff and like mental health and autism and it gives you a greater understanding of how people think. But it is still one that is fun to watch and you don’t get bored. The episodes aren’t too long and you do get attached to the characters. So yeah this is just an overall great series and it is definitely one of my favs.

3. Friday Night Dinner

Right so if you are a true Brit you 100% will have heard of this. Literally so funny and I think that if you are an American you could still understand their accents. It is so hilarious and your like, wait, that is so relatable. And Jim, oh my god he is so cute. Like all the characters are so iconic and have their own thing. It is like you are part of the fam because you know what they are like and your just like ‘oh typical Jim ahaah’ you get me

2. The office

So I think I might start a wee fight with this. The office that I’m talking about is the US one. Hear me 
out, the UK one gives me weird vibes and I don’t know why. Both are cringy but then with the UK one I literally get panic attacks or something because it feels as though it’s real life, but it’s not, it’s all a script. The US one is so good. All the people are well known and really good actors. I actually love Jim though. Of course he is just a character but I want to grow up and marry a man like that. So men, take notes. But yeah the office has a lot of series but you get to know the characters and it’s really comforting.

1. Derry Girls

If you have not heard of this you are UNCULTURED. Literally, where have you been? It is so funny but what makes it funnier for me is that Americans literally have to use subtitles for it. Like seriously what the hell. I have rewatched it so many times and I love it so much. But then again, humours so subjective really. If you watched Derry girls you would get that. Either way though, subtitles or not, you have to watch this. I actually can’t put into words how much I love it. Please just watch it, please. Like I can’t say how funny it is and how great it is. I live in Northern Ireland and I went to see the wee mural in Derry and I was actually dying. Literally fan girl question mark. And then I drove past some of the places they filmed and I felt like I was in Hollywood or something, just a wee bit rougher ahaha. Derry girls 100% deserves first place, it literally has everything you could want. And I love all the characters, like I would have a heart attack if I saw one of them. Orla also gives me phoebe from friends vibes if you get me. I. LOVE. IT.

Anyways, thank you very much for reading this and I hope this gave you some great ideas, especially as we may be going back into lockdown. Stay safe and enjoy the shows.

thank-you-6
