Thursday Movie Picks: TMP Television Edition: Family Comedies

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
As usual, the TMP post each month is about TV shows instead, so let’s talk about some family comedies!

#1 Modern Family

I haven’t watched many family comedies recently, but Modern Family was one that I found surprisingly funny!

#2 The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is a show I watched a lot growing up and since it is on Netflix, I rewatched it during the first lockdown. Well, for the most part, it still holds up!

Thursday Movie Picks Romance Tropes / TMP Television Edition: Workplace Romance

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
For this year’s final romance trope edition, we look at TV shows instead of films. So, let’s talk about workplace romances in series!

#1 Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The first couple that came to mind when I read the theme was Jake and Amy. They are wonderful together and I appreciate that the show took its time, allowing it to develop naturally. It’s probably one of the cutest workplace romances I have ever seen on TV and in film.

#2 Better Call Saul

This is another one I really like, because just like Amy and Jake, this one has grown over some time. It’s the kind of on-screen relationship that feels the most organic to me (and doesn’t make me roll my eyes because it’s written in a stupid way). Better Call Saul is a great show in general but I think they also nailed it with Jimmy and Kim.

TMP Television Edition: Books You Want to be adapted into a TV Series

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme. However, since it’s the last Thursday of the month, it’s all about TV shows instead.
Today I get to talk about one of my favorite things which is book adaptations. Here’s some stuff that I read and absolutely need to be turned into a TV series!

#1 Cinder

Cinder or rather the entire Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer would make for a stand-out show. The story has it all, magic, fairytales, cyborgs, action, romance. What else could you want?

#2 The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

This is one I finished only a couple of weeks ago. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue tells the story of Addie who is more or less immortal. Can you imagine how could a show would be? We’d get to follow her through the centuries!

Merlin: Season 4 – A Review

Hey guys!
I’m almost finished with Merlin, so without further ado let’s get right down to it and talk a bit about the penultimate season. I’ve had a few minor ups and downs with the show so far, but now it seems to have found it’s groove. Can they keep it up with season 4?

The Plot (as found on Rotten Tomatoes):

When the action begins in season four, a year has passed and Arthur (Bradley James) is acting king while Uther (Anthony Head) remains in a state of depression. Morgana (Katie McGrath) aims to settle a score by summoning Callieach (Gemma Jones) to rip apart the fabric between the worlds of the living and dead, unleashing creatures that kill anyone whom they touch. Merlin (Colin Morgan) suspects someone close to Arthur is a traitor, and when he uses his alter-ego to show that magic is not a force of evil his plan backfires. Arthur takes the next step toward marriage with Gwen (Angel Coulby) but doubts her sincerity when he sees her kissing a revived Lancelot (Santiago Cabrera).

The Rating:

This was brilliant! I wasn’t too sure what to expect going into this season, but the last one was pretty good, so I had my hope up. Well, they fully delivered and I couldn’t be more excited to see what the final season now holds in store for us.
I will be discussing some things that include spoilers, so click read more at your own risk. ūüėČ

What I can say without giving anything away is that the acting is great in this one. It made me feel all the feels and it seemed they finally found a balance between funny bickering scenes and emotionally intense ones. Although I doesn’t seem like they changed much, the show doesn’t feel as underbudgeted anymore. In my previous reviews I mentioned that it appears to suffer from a serious case of not enough money, leaving us with some costumes, props, special effects that felt cheap. Either I got used to it by now or they simply did a much better job.
