Thursday Movie Picks: Halloween/Television Edition – The Weird

Hello my lovely readers!
This week I’m participating in the Thursday Movie Picks series by Wandering through the shelves. For a change the topic focuses on TV instead of movies – and it’s a Halloween special. So let’s talk about The Weird…

 

A little note before I get started. I decided to focus this post on animated show. When I read about the topic the episodes below were the first things to come to my mind, so it’s animation exclusive. 😉

 

Hell on Earth 2006 – South Park:
South Park featured some great Halloween episodes but this one is my favorite – and also the weirdest one. In Hell on Earth 2006 Satan wants to throw a Halloween party My Super Sweet Sixteen style and wears a Britney Spears school girl costume. Weird enough for you?

 

Treehouse of Horror – The Simpsons:
When we talk about Halloween episodes nothing is more classic than the Treehouse of Horror episodes featured in every Simpsons season since the second one. The one I enjoyed most the original – the first Treehouse of Horror episode ever broadcasted. It’s split into three stories: one is about a haunted house. The second one deals with the Simpsons being abducted by aliens. But my most treasured story of all is The Raven. The poem by Edgar Allan Poe is brought to life in this episode. And what’s weirder than a raven saying only “nevermore”?

6 More Amazing TV Show Couples

Hey guys!
It took me a while but finally it is here. The second installment of my most beloved TV show couples! (Click here for Part 1)

 

#6 Jeannie and Major Nelson (I Dream of Jeannie):
Although this show aired a little before my time, I absolutely adore it. Barbara Eden plays Jeannie, a 2000 year old genie. Major Nelson becomes her new master and the two fall in love. It’s one of those classic sitcoms that you can’t help but fall for. The unlikely couples faces lots of problems but eventually the even get married!

 

#5 Becky and Jesse (Full House):
I grew up watching Full House and following this couple along their way. Jesse is the coolest guy out there and Becky is a TV journalist. Although they may not the obvious match, they a wonderful relationship and in the later seasons even two cute children. Becky was always one of my favourite TV characters when I was young (and not only because we have the same name 😉 ).

3 Thoughts on Bob’s Burgers Season 7

Hey guys!
Today I want to talk about one of my favourite animated TV shows: Bob’s Burgers. To celebrate the season finale, which will air soon, I’ll share my thoughts on this season!

 

Thought #1 – The Episode Titles:
This time, they really excelled themselves! Many of the episode titles are parodies of famous movies. Some of those gems are: Large Brother, Where Fart Thou?, The Last Gingerbreadhouse on the Left, The Grand Mama-Pest Hotel and many more.
To be honest, I was almost more excited to find out the newest episode title, than hear what the episode is actually about. I simply adore these titles and it once more shows with how much love for details Bob’s Burgers is made. Continue reading

Describe Yourself in 3 Fictional Characters – TV Show Edition

Hello my lovely readers!
Today I’m going to steal a post idea I saw over at FlickChicks. The Describe Yourself in 3 Fictional Characters things has been going around for time now but I completely missed out until I stumbled upon their post!
However, I’m going to change it up a bit as I couldn’t decide on just three characters from all fictional areas. So, there will be a post on TV Shows, Movies and Books!
Let’s kick it off with TV Shows. Allons-y!

 

Louise Belcher:
She is totally my spirit animal. Never have I identified this much with an animated character. (Although Lisa  Simpsons is close second) First of all I love that all of her stuff has ears. She has a bunny ear hat (sewed one of those!), a teddy bear backpack (need one of those!) and slippers with bunny ears! Apart from her choice in accessories I can identify with her because of her sarcasm!
I already caught myself thinking several times “Hey that’s totally something I’d say!”. On top of that she is a bit of a weird child (totally me) and has character.

 

Robin Scherbatsky:
Although I didn’t enjoy the last How I Met Your Mother season and especially the finale that much, Robin Scherbatsky has always been a character I could closely identify with. First of all, she’s one of the boys. She’s not one of the girly girls but rather enjoys doing stuff that mean are usually more into. I’ve never been interested in the most typical girl-topics and always got along better with boys than girls. (Although I may not share the exact same interests with Robin…)
Another point I can very much relate with is her career. It’s very important to her and is willing to sacrifice a lot for it.
But what I always enjoyed most about her is that she never was the “Hey, let’s get married and have kids”-type. She stated several times throughout the show that it’s just not a role she sees herself in and I know what that feels like. And I have a crappy relationship with my dad. So hey, I’m Robin all the way!

 

Jessica Jones:
This may not be the most obvious choice. I may not have any superpowers or be a dope fighter. But she is antisocial and just doesn’t enjoy being around people (except maybe for a few selected ones). Most of the time, the mere existence of some people just seems to annoy her and whenever Jessica Jones gets the chance, she avoids being social.
I am a rather antisocial person myself. I simply enjoy being by myself, may it be staying at home or also running through town doing stuff alone. Believe me when I say there’s only very few people who don’t annoy the shit out of me.
Although I really try to become more of  a social person and be nicer in general towards other people, I’m still a lone wolf at heart.

 

Which characters would you choose? Let me know in the comments!

4 Amazing TV Shows that will return this Fall!

Summer may be over soon, and although I will miss it, there is one truly great thing about fall: My favorite TV shows returning for another season. I’m already super excited, I hope you are too!

 

2 Broke Girls:
The first two episodes of season 6 will air on 10th October. I’ve love the story of two very unlikely girls becoming friends and business partners from the very start. There’s a bit of me in both of the main characters and I constantly sway in my decision whom I resemble more.
And cupcakes are always a good idea 😉

 

American Horror Story:
This show actually returns today, also with season 6. After #5 started out really impressive but began to weaken throughout the season, I can’t wait to find out what they will come up with now. I don’t even know what this season main theme will be and I honestly have no clue.
Get ready to be frightened!
