What’s Up Week 10: There is never enough TV series…

Ten weeks have gone by this year! Its incredible to think that a lot of happened. March is a bit two-fold. On one hand, everything has balanced out as the movie watching blogathons and marathons have both simmered away, leading to a shift in finding other little things to work on. I have a pretty good idea on what to tentatively schedule in for a lot of these sections to clear out a lot of commitments that have been just sitting in the background. I’m catching up with stuff and also trying to stay current and minimize backlog. Hopefully in due time, you will start seeing a lot of these things pop up in written form (or video format. I realize I’ve been neglecting it and not going to lie that I forgot…).

READING

two sisters of borneo

Currently reading: The Two Sisters of Borneo by Ian Hamilton

The Two Sisters of Borneo is still a great ride even at three quarters into the book. There’s this really great thing but for once in a pretty long while, I finally figured out a part of the twist from the clues in the novel. Its something to be happy about mostly because this one takes some unique turns in the plot usually . Its still very fast paced so I’m looking forward to see how the last quarter goes.

PLAYING

  • Gunhouse

Currently playing: Eastshade

Talking about gaming, I always take little breaks from open world games here and there so its a bit slower but the husband wanted to give Gunhouse a whirl. We got it for Playstation Plus free games and its something that looked like its right up my alley. We both ended up playing it on our own accounts. I’m putting together a video for it soon for the Game Warp channel.

WATCHING

  • Wall-E (rewatch)
  • Up (rewatch)
  • Knowing
  • Pacific Rim (rewatch – Review)

Lots of great movies rewatched this week. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for the only film that I walked in on my husband watching (and have no desire to start at the beginning after finishing it). Knowing is really quite a let-down, mostly when it has the twist which is too far-fetched for my liking. Either way, the double features for all these random movies are coming up soon. They are in the works. As for Wall-E and Up, you should have already seen it go up as my blogathon finale triple feature HERE. And as for Pacific Rim, that is for the next Movies and Tea episode…well..we’re a bit ahead of the game because I’m going to be coming up to a busy time so it’ll be in 2 episodes. In the meantime, I did link an older review for when I first watched Pacific Rim. It probably isn’t too good in the writing (but I didn’t check so who knows.)

BINGING

  • Lipstick Prince

Currently binging: My Amazing Boyfriend 2, The Big Family Cooking Showdown (Season 2), The Singer 2019, My Little One 2, Mr. Swimmer

I know it sounds kind of crazy and you’re asking the heck is Lipstick Prince. To be honest, I’ve watched only all the episodes I had access to and could find on Youtube. There are few that I haven’t found yet but I already have a very good idea of the show itself. It is pretty funny and cute to watch. Its structured a little like the idol dramas centralizing around four young male celebrities as they get distributed tasks to put make up on one female celebrity and try to charm them throughout. Its only 10 episodes but very hard to find everything as its not through the normal channels. I’ll do a little write-up on it soon.

On the other hand, what’s life if not adding on even more TV series, right? I’m starting to feel like I have some TV series attention deficiency issue. I promise you that I started Mr. Swimmer for a reason. Well, one reason…because I was looking up Mike Angelo because of My Amazing Boyfriend 2 and that is also how I landed on Lipstick Prince. I’m almost halfway through Mr. Swimmer (not quite) and while it has some very comedic bits, it is also very dramatic and nearing the halfway point, the drama is getting a bit high, the situation is getting a bit frustrating and some characters are genuinely pissing me off. So I’m taking it a bit slower as to not raise the blood pressure too much on my end.

That’s it for this What’s Up!
What have you been up to?

One thought on “What’s Up Week 10: There is never enough TV series…

  1. Oh, I haven’t watched Knowing for a long time now, but it was such a disappointment! It started off so well though – it almost felt like one of those stories you used to write as a kid when you got bored half way through and just thought up a terrible ending just to be done with it.
