One Episode In… Peaky Blinders

I’m one episode in Peaky Blinders and I must admit, I’m impressed. I’m not overwhelmed with information, I’m not bored, but I’m not completely sucked in either. But there is a coolness to this show that has me wanting more after the first episode. From just the first episode, and very little to no background knowledge or research into the series, I gathered that this is about some illegal activity

One Episode In… When They See Us

I’m one episode in When They See Us, and this is exactly why I didn’t want to start this series. I knew it would make me angry and frustrated. Not because it’s badly put together; it’s barely considered bad. But because the story is told so compellingly that it hits so hard, you have no choice but to become emotionally invested and feel an overwhelming amount of disappointment. Basically the

One Episode In… The Witcher

I’m one episode in The Witcher and at first, I honestly thought I was going to be so disappointed, but by the end of it, I was excited. Netflix’s The Witcher is said to be based on the books and not the game we’ve grown to love. Though there are plenty of hints of the gaming series, as well. Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) otherwise known as the White Wolf

One Episode In… Jane The Virgin

I’m one episode in Jane The Virgin and boy, that’s one jam-packed first episode. Think of any emotion you can practically feel in one show, I felt it. Think of almost every genre but horror, and this show, from just one episode, it embodies it. Jane The Virgin follows, well, Jane (Gina Rodriguez), who was convinced by her grandmother at a young age to stay pure until basically, she was

One Episode In… Chernobyl

I’m one episode in Chernobyl, and I feel like this is going to be a slow burner. Considering I fancy myself a bit of a history buff, and certainly very interested in impactful world events, the disaster in Chernobyl was always one I found fascinating and even a considered must see destination in the future (yes, I know the risks). I’ve never once thought about looking out for movies or

One Episode In… Atypical

I’m one episode in Atypical, and I’m not completely won over, but I have a feeling that this is going to grow on me. Atypical is the story of Sam (Keir Gilchrist), an autistic young man who has an obsession with the Antarctic and is specifically fascinated by penguins. Episode one, and I assume the rest are the same, goes back and forth between Sam’s appointments with his therapist Julia

One Episode In… Mindhunter

I’m one episode in of Mindhunter and I’m just going to use a cliché and say, I’m hooked. Yes, I am one of those white girls from the memes about being excited about new serial killer stuff on Netflix. Mindhunter has literally been on my Netflix list for a good year and I’m so stupid to have waited this long to watch it. I blame all those documentaries that keep

One Episode In… You

I’m one episode in of You, and not going to lie, this creep, Joe (Penn Badgley) has got me very intrigued. I also want to point out the fact that I totally see and agree with the humour that the title of this show comes with, when you add it to sexual innuendos such as, ‘One Episode In…’, but beside the point… The buzz was electrifying for this new Netflix

One Episode In… Dirty John

I am one episode in Dirty John, and I’m praying it’s just a slow start. Bored is an understatement. I think, if you’re going to make a show about some psychopath who is all grey clouds, but beneath the surface has all the true colours of the rainbow, then you should hit that nail on the head right away. So, I am disappointed. I never knew who this John Meehan

One Episode In… The Night Of

I’m one episode in of The Night Of, and I can easily confess early on, this is the sort of stuff masterpieces are made of. Oh, how I do love a good suspense drama. Did he do it? Did he not do it? What happened the night she was killed? Why can’t he remember anything? How did he not realise he was sleeping in a pool of blood? Why did he
