Hey guys how’s it going? Weekly Check-in Time! This week was a lot of go go go with a couple of mini trips and hanging with the boyfriend more than usual.
Because of that, my media consumption was very low this week with watching two TV shows and reading one novella along with one volume of manga. Onto the media!!
Somebody Feed Phil
So this show was a recommendation from my boyfriend’s cousin and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed what I watched. I loved how even though the person who is hosting this show is pretty famous, he picked places around the world that may not have been famous with some experts on the places he visited. For example, I watched an episode with Singapore and he explored the Food Markets. That was truly a fascinating experience to see. I think my only issue with this show, is that some of the jokes with me didn’t land or just felt like they were just added because of how the person is famous but other than that, I truly enjoyed my time watching it. Because of these points, I have to give this show a 4.5 out of 5 stars or 5 sushi 🍣🍣🍣🍣🍣.
Body of Proof
This show is still really fun to watch all things considered. I think because there is a balance of humor with the seriousness of solving a crime similar to Bones except there’s more characters and less about the romantic tension (although it is there believe me). The only issue I have now is that they are trying to make it have more parallels with the daughter (I think to appeal to the younger generation) plus there are some more romantic interests that they are trying too hard making a thing. Because of these points, I have to give it a solid 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.
Talk Wordy to Me
I’ll be honest, this novella is not going to be for everyone but I enjoyed it. It is definitely a story if you need some smut but also a semi flushed out story as well. However, there’s a lot of moments of suspending disbelief and I got annoyed towards the end of the stereotypical tropes that were too predictable but overall its like a small piece of candy. Delicious but a bit forgettable along with something you can pick up and put down and not forget anything. Because of these points, I have to give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars or 3 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣.
This is a conclusion that was fulfilling but also not at the same time. I feel like the equality of the two characters was a bit skewed in perspective and it was the character that I wasn’t a big fan of. I do like though the emotions that were presented but I don’t think this series is for everyone. Overall though, I really enjoyed the art and the character dynamics but again this is one I don’t recommend to everyone. Because of these points, I have to give this volume a 3.5 out of 5 stars or 3 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣.
The Week Ahead
The week ahead, I am thinking that at least at the moment, focusing on at least one item at a time for the week. But we will see what happens. What about you guys? What did you read or watch this week? Let’s talk about it!
