    5 Fandom Friday: 5 TV Shows I Can’t Wait To Watch in 2017

    I don’t want to admit how much tv I watch (lest you say I have a problem), buuuut the 5 Fandom Friday prompt this week calls for baring my soul and admitting what I’m super in to (I’ve never done that before *COUGH COUGH*).

    I guess I’ll just have to use this opportunity to talk you ear off.

    This week’s 5 Fandom Friday post is 5 TV shows I’m stoked for this year, and lemme tell you– IT’S GONNA BE BIG.

     

    1) ATTACK ON TITAN [April 2017] – Absolutely numero uno for me. Good lawd I can’t even begin to tell you. Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve been obsessed with AoT since the first season came out in 2013. We’re finally getting the second season (4 YEARS LATER) and I feel like I’m dying I’m so excited. Part of me is still suspicious (they’ve announced the second season in 2015, twice in 2016 and now again in 2017), so I feel like I”ll believe it when I see it. Buuuuut, Funimation themselves put out a release date and official trailer, so I’m feeling lucky this year…. although, the date is April 1st for release, and if it was an April Fool’s Day prank, I wouldn’t even feel mad. I would just accept it at this point. If it does happen, happy birthday to me! (Shameless plug- my birthday is in early April).

    UPDATE: Here’s another funimation confirmation (say that 5 times fast) post. OH GOD IT’S HAPPENING.

    2). The Walking Dead [Feb. 2017] –  I’ve been watching the Walking Dead for a few years now, but almost always as an ‘afterthought’ I’d say. I’m a big fan, but I haven’t had cable after moving out from my parent’s place, so I haven’t been able to keep abreast of the series until this past season. Now that I can steadily watch it on a particular day (due to dating someone with cable), I’m STOKED. I mean, I remember watching the first episode live with my little brother, and being super excited about it, so I love being able to watch live now. This past year The Dude and I would watch Westworld and then TWD and it made for amazing Sundays. It’s a shame Westworld won’t be back until 2018, though.

     

    3.) Orange is the New Black  [June 2017] –  BRUH. OITNB has gotten DEEP and I FEEL IT. Season 4 ended on a MAJOR CLIFFHANGER with the entire season being one of the most tense situations as a whole yet. There is some serious social commentary going on, on so many levels, and I honestly almost cannot wait any longer in this situation. I hope it picks up exactly where it left off. The aftermath is going to be so serious. It’s really going to be great television, for one, but also showcasing the deep human emotions in the show continually motivates me to keep volunteering and donating and trying to improve lives. Silly to get it from a TV show, but it reminds me of little things (like women in prison need good books and things to help get out of the vicious cycle). Anyways.

     

     

    4.) Z Nation [At some point in 2017] – I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Asylum is like…my favorite tv show and movie producing people (They’re the geniuses behind every clever knock-off film , and even the sharknado series). They’re ridiculous and I love them. That applies because the SYFY channel and Asylum have teamed up to make a zombie show, and I love it. It’s full of the ridiculousness that I enjoy from Asylum, with sheer genius coming from SYFY. It returns this year, and I’m so excited! It’s actually really good, and the pace is great. Forget TWD where it takes several seasons to move cities- they people go ALL OVER and it’s great.  If you’re interested, seasons 1 +2 are on Netflix, and 3 is on the internet if you’re crafty (definitely *~*~*don’t*~*~* do illegal things).

     

     

    5.) Bob’s Burgers –  There’s only two more episodes in season 7 this year, which means we’ll have to wait until September for season 8. Bob’s Burgers is one of my absolute favorite shows, and I NEED these fresh episodes. I’ve rewatched all the past seasons so many times I can recite them with my eyes shut while only being given the first line of the episode. I’m almost 100% serious. But, I do love the episodes so much, and can’t wait for all the new ones this year. If it’s anything like the past few season, we’ll get a solid chunk of episodes before the year’s end.

     

    STOKED.

     

    So, those’re the main shows I’m hyped up for this year. It’s gonna be BIG.

     

    Annnnnnnnnd that’s this week’s 5 Fandom Fridays!

    5 Fandom Friday: 5 Films I’m Excited For in 2017

    Guuuuuuuuys.

    This 5 Fandom Friday prompt is hard for me, because I have to be forced to watch movies.

    Not that movies aren’t great, because they are amazing, but because I feel guilty sitting down and paying attention to just one thing for a solid two hours when I’ve got so much going on all the time.

    But, with that being said, I still have some movies I look forward to.
    Here are mine for 2017.


    0.) Split – The reason this doesn’t count on this list is because I’ve got tickets for tonight and I’m already seeing it. Haha. Super excited though!

    UPDATE – AMAZING. Go watch it.

     

    1). Guardians of the Galaxy 2 [May 5, 2017] – Believe it or not, I didn’t see the first one until THE OTHER DAY. Not quite sure how I put it off for so long (especially considering how great it was), but like I said- I feel guilty just watching movies. So, judging from the fresh excitement having just the first one, I’m really stoked that there is a second this year! I’ve been told it comes out in May, and I’ve planned some DIYS just in time for the movie’s release. I’ve become a superfan out of nowhere.

    2). New/Updated Superhero movies – This is just a category, since there’s several this year, but here they are.

    Thor Ragnarok [Nov. 3 2017] – I won’t lie, not sure how I feel about this one, only to say that I know I’m going to see it. As some may know, one of my cosplay characters is Lady Loki, who functions into the timeline around Ragnarok (although I don’t believe she’ll be in it at all). I won’t say I’m stoked to see this, but I know I will be seeing it.

    Wonder Woman [June 2, 2017] –  I am stoked for this though.

    Justice League [Nov 17, 2017] –  I’ve got high hopes, and have no reason to feel Marvel will let me down at all.

    Logan [Mar 3, 2017] –  I’ll be forced by my significant other to watch this one, but I’m also sure I’ll like it.

    Spider-Man Homecoming [July 7, 2017] – eeeeeeeeeee. We’ll see. I’m STOKED for Zendaya, but kinda unsure about another spider man movie.

    3. STAR WARS Ep. VIII [Dec. 15, 2017]   – Not sure why I made this number three?? What the heck. I am stooooooked for this, though. ENough said there.

    4. A Cure for Wellness [ Feb. 17, 2017] – Now, for this one, I’m legitimately excited. My friend Marka sent me over the trailer the second she saw it, and we’ve been stoked to go ever since( We’re also stoked to see Rings, which may give insight to the types of movies we like, ha). I may see it opening weekend. I’m a horror fan, as we know. As of now it has a 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, which means it could go either way, I guess.

    5.) Get Out [Feb 24, 2017] – I [in] love [with] Jordan Peele, and I’m super excited for this movie that he’s directed, especially since it’s horror. I’ve heard some complaints that white people are being made the villain, but that’s like… the entire premise of the movie, so I’d suggest not watching it to those people. I think it’s a very interesting premise that will play both on real social commentary as horror and genuine thriller/horror standard moves (jump-scares, etc.) , and I think combined it will be a great watch.

    Honorable Mentions: The Circle [Apr. 28], World War Z 2 [June 9], Amityville: The Awakening [June 30], Alien: Covenant [May 19], Saw: Legacy [Oct. 27 (perfect for Halloween!)

     

    ANNNNNNNNNND that’s where we’re at now. Seeing all those titles makes it look like I’m way more into movies than I am, especially  since I probably won’t see everything on this list.

    Strong Women Series – Lt. Roberta Warren (Z-Nation)

    IT IS WEDNESDAY, MY LADIES.

    My strong woman for today is a helluva gal- Lt. Roberta Warren of SyFy and The Asylum’s Z-Nation.

    Warren, played by the mega-babe Kellita Smith, has been a Boss Bitch since day 1.

    Z-Nation is a  apocalyptic, zombie-themed series show on SyFy where a small group of survivors, led by Warren, try to get the only known survivor of a zombie bite to the Center for Disease Control in hopes of producing an antidote.

    I started watching the show because The Asylum is my favorite production company every, but I stayed for the kickass women (mostly Warren, for sure). Read more

    Strong Women Series: Linda Belcher (Bob’s Burgers)

     

    It’s a Wednesday, so I’ve got another strong woman for you to learn about. Today’s focus is on one of the most hilarious, animated “lean, mean, mom-jean, revenge machine’ ladies out there- the lovely Linda Belcher.

    Yesterday was my mom’s birthday, so what a better way to celebrate than honoring one of my (and my own mom’s) favorite TV moms? (Plus all the real birthday celebrating we actually did, ha).

    Let’s get into the reasons why I just seriously love Linda.

    For one, she knows how to have fun.

    I’ve found in some TV shows that the ‘mom’ character is typically given less of a personality, and most of the action they have revolves around just being a mom- and I mean, don’t get me wrong; mom’s are amazing. But, I feel as though some writes lack giving depth to the mother figures, or stop their personalities beyond the hi-jinks of their family life.
    But Linda is her own woman, with her own desires, hobbies and skill sets- which I love.

    Episodes of Bob’s Burgers that focus on Linda are great because they focus on her as an individual… and it just so happens that that individual also has amazing taste.
