TMP Television Edition: Royalty

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 is customary for the last post of the month we’re doing TV instead of movies, specifically shows focussing on royalty.

#1 The Crown

Let’s start this off with The Crown, probably the most famous show about royalty that has aired in recent years.

#2 The Royals

Next up, we have a show that I never actually finished watching. I managed to catch the first season when it was on German TV but never really kept up with it after that. The Royals is more of a party version of royalty.

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.

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.
Since it’s the last Thursday of the month, we’re gonna talk about TV shows instead of films. To be specific, we’re gonna tackle some 2021 new releases!

#1 Midnight Mass

This one came as such a surprise to me! Several people recommended it to me, so I gave it a shot and ended up really liking the show. It’ll give you a lot of food for thought and come with some intriguing twists.

#2 Wheel of Time

I haven’t seen this one yet, in fact I had no idea what Wheel of Time even is until one of my friends very excitedly told me about it. Long story short, I’m not reading the books and once I’m done with that I’m gonna tackle the show!

TMP Television Edition: Holiday

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.
It is the last TMP of the month so we focus on TV shows instead of movies. And since it’s still December, this will be holiday-themed. Let’s talk about some of my favorite holiday-themed episodes!

#1 My So Called Life – So Called Angels (S1E15)

I will never forgive them for canceling this show. Honestly, it was the only series about teenagers that ever felt authentic and relatable to me. The Christmas episode was so profound and touching, a real tearjerker without being cheesy or just copy-pasting what you already saw seven million times.

#2 Doctor Who – Twice Upon a Time (13th Christmas Special)

Doctor Who is somewhat famous for its amazing Christmas specials. There are many great ones but I think my favorite is Twice Upon a time. That episode really got me.
