May 2016 | Tea & Screens #3

I watched so many TV shows and movies this month, because after finals I was pretty much free and I loved that. Many seasons of shows were ending so I was busy catching up on everything, and now I'm up to date! Of course, there are shows I haven't started the new seasons yet, so it's my plan for the summer. I'm currently catching up on Game of Thrones as we speak. 

Once Upon A Time (520-523) - Aaah, I'm happy that the villain wasn't redeemable after all! At first, it felt a little weird they had defeated it before the last two episodes of the season, but I'm so pumped about the new villain they introduced. I wasn't keeping up with the news abut the show, so I had no idea, but it's pretty interesting in my opinion (I don't want to spoil people who haven't finished!). I also want to know more of the new land we saw. There was an important death and it was a bit sad, but I can't tell I was surprised. Moreover, I liked how two characters are becoming close, but well, it's a family show so we could expect it.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (319-322) - The way they defeated the villain was pretty interesting and sad, it also means we finally got rid of a certain character (hahaha). But, what was that ending, creators? It was pretty weird but I'm definitely curious about what will happen next.

New Girl (510-522) - I literally marathoned all of these episodes during finals (I know, it's bad), because I grew so addicted to this show. I wasn't a huge fan of Megan Fox's character though, because she was pretty much a filler while Jess wasn't there, you know? I liked that some old characters came back this season, it was so much fun to have them again. And oh, in the end the wedding was hilarious. Nothing went as planned, but who expected it to be perfect? The ending made me a little sad for Jess, but well, I'm sure it will be better for her next season.

The Big Bang Theory (921-924) - As always, I'm having so much fun watching this show, it has such a perfect format. However, I feel like this season's finale wasn't really a finale. I mean, it could have been any episode of the season, so I was a little disappointed about that... I needed more tension and more closure, but well, I'll have season next season I guess, as it's the last!

The Flash (220-223) - Okay, I can't stand Iris anymore. A villain should come and kill her instead of good characters, duh. But well, she's endgame and they have to keep her while she says cheesy stuffs to Barry. Nope, nope, nope. The only reason her character is here is to be Barry's love interest, I definitely don't like that. Nevertheless, I liked the resolution of the season. I'm scared for the new season, though, because Barry, you shouldn't have chosen to do that! It will mess everything up for sure! And ah, it was pretty funny to see who was behind the mask in Zoom's lair.

Arrow (420-423) - While I loved the whole season (because magic :D), I was disappointed on how this season ended. It's exactly the same that last season, except the characters are reversed. Seriously, some originality, please? However, I like that Arrow is one of those shows that doesn't end on a cliffhanger, it changes a little. Curtis was definitely the best, he helped the team a lot, I hope we'll see more of him.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow (108-116) - This show is amazing, I marathoned most of it with my boyfriend in a day, that's how obsessed we were. However, I'm mad at this soul mate thing, okay? We choose who we love, period. Except for that complain, it was so kickass, the characters are amazing and I can't wait to see what happens next! And well, they were aboard a time travel ship, which means I was bound to like it! ;)

Tinkerbell and the Legend of the NeverBeast (2014) - It was on demand and I hadn't seen this Tinkerbell movie, so I had to (there is still one I haven't seen I think). I loved the plot, it was pretty original and introduced so much world-building. It also focused a lot more on Noa than Tinkerbell, but I didn't mind that, it was interesting to switch focus a little. Moreover, I cried at the end because it was saaaaad. Yes, I know it's ridiculous that I cry during Disney movies when I'm twenty, but I don't care.

Atlantis: the Lost Empire (2001) (rewatch) - The first time I watched this movie I was five apparently (I went with my school), I didn't remember a lot. I loved it because Atlantis' myth is so interesting and the movie was steampunk, which I love. I'm happy I got to watch it again, especially when my little brothers had never seen it.

Becoming Jane (2007) - I'm obsessed with this movie. I saw it on demand and was like 'oh it sounds interesting' but then I was completely hooked. I know it was romanticized but the chemistry was on point. The best scene was when Jane was dancing with Wisley and then she had to switch partners and then it was Lefroy and he had such a smile... My heart completely melted... The last scene was also pretty cute, even though it probably never happened. But it was hope and respect and I'm dying here, guys. I want more and Jane Austen to be happy forever and ever with Lefroy, even though it didn't happen and helped her become such a great writer. *sobs*

Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) - Funny that this book was inspired by Pride and Prejudice as I watched Becoming Jane during the same month. I never read the book but I found the movie to be really funny and ridiculous. I still loved it even though everything was WTF. Also, Colin Firth is so attractive it hurts. Apparently he played Darcy in one of Pride and Prejudice's adaptations??? I need to watch that.

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004) - When I started watching it, I was a little 'meh' because I knew it would be drama, over drama. But it was still funny and the situations 100% ridiculous. This movie was definitely not mind blowing but I had such a good time watching it! Moreover, I learnt that a new Bridget Jones movie is coming out this year? I totally want to watch that.

Have you watched any of the movies and TV shows I mentioned? What did you watch this month?


  1. I just started watching The Flash, I'm only in season one, but OMG I already DESPISE Iris! She is SUUUUCH an annoying character! If I'm already thinking this in season one, then it'll be worse in the next season won't it? ...

    I love the guy that plays Barry, he's so good at it, and funny! Also really cute ;)

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow <-- what is that? I must watch it! Do I need to see any of the other shows before watching it?

    I've seen half of season one of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but I was so bored, does it get better and more exciting in later seasons? I wish I had time to watch it all. Same with Arrow! No time to watch it and have only seen 4 episodes... Arghh so hard.

    I've season one on Once Upon A Time, I tried with season 2 but I got bored. I need to catch up because WOW I didn't think it would have so many season o_o

    1. Her dialogues this season were quite cringe-worthy at some point, uuuugh. Yes, Grant Gustin is so cute. Also, did you watch Glee back in the day? He was playing one of the Warblers and sang Smooth Criminal with the actress playing Santana, I loved this version so much! It's quite funny to see the evolution. And well, he's only twenty-six! ;)

      Legends of Tomorrow is another spin-off of Arrow and The Flash actually and yes you should watch it! But the main characters were secondary ones from Arrow and the Flash, so it spoils the shows in some aspects, but only the newest seasons. So I don't know what you should do... My boyfriend doesn't watch Arrow but he can follow Legends of Tomorrow!

      I think Agents of SHIELD got better, but it's not the best superheroes show... :/ I struggled a lot with Arrow in the past but this season was amazing!

      Season 1 is the best in my opinion for Once Upon A Time. I struggled last year when it was all about Frozen but I'm back in the game. I don't think there will be many seasons after this one though!

  2. I tried to watch The Flash and Arrow, but couldn't get passed the first episode unfortunately. I watched the beginning of New Girl too (multiple times actually), but I never continued on. Same thing with Once Upon A Time, where I loved season 1, but never continued on.

    I've watched a lot of Netflix shows though, like Sense8, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, etc. Currently I'm being forced to watch Boy Meets World, which is apparently something I missed out on my childhood hahah.

    1. Oh, that's too bad! At first, I hadn't continued the Flash either, but I think it got better. The first season of Once Upon A Time was definitely the best in my opinion, because it focused more on the tales. Now, we sometimes have new secondary characters to have new stories, but that's pretty much it...

      I haven't watched the second season of Daredevil yet, I cannot wait to get to it! However, Jessica Jones was too violent for me. *hides* I have never watched Boy Meets World either, haha.
