A Discovery of Witches is my new (ish) thing

There’s a TV/streaming show (do we even call it that anymore?) called “A discovery of Witches” starring Matthew Goode as the Vampire Matthew Clairmont and Teresa Palmer as Diana Bishop. My partner wasn’t sold initially saying it was too much like “Twilight” trying to dismiss it as teenage drivel. But I was sold, particularly on both of the lead roles.

Matthew Goode is, of course, absolutely delectable as Clairmont, that beautifully refined English accent sounds like honey in your ears. And Theresa Palmer is every bit the reluctant witch, Diana, reluctant to embrace her calling as a witch but not adverse to the charms of a beautiful Vampire 😁

I’ve just watched episode three I think and there is one scene in particular that just grabbed me and I’ve been pretty smitten ever since. I’ll make a gif set of the scene in question because you really need to see what I mean. I think I’m in love with this show πŸ˜πŸ˜β€πŸ’™


All about the Cobra that slithered its way into my life

I dunno if anyone noticed that my avatar changed a while back. Well, I changed it because I had a new pop culture thing to geek out on. See I’m a VERY big geek and in lots of different ways; I’m a HUGE movie geek, in fact, movies next to video games are one of my favourite of all things to do. I have a Letterboxd profile with thousands of movies logged (and honestly, I don’t think I’ve even catalogued half of the movies I’ve seen in my illustrious pursuit of being a cinephile to reckon with). And I also happen to really love TV shows (even though I don’t technically use my TV for actually watching TV in the traditional sense).

So I’d like to introduce anyone that gives a crap to my other latest fun thing to follow, the YouTube Premium show called Cobra Kai. For anyone that doesn’t know what that is, basically, it’s the continued story of Johnny Lawrence (the badass blonde bully in The Karate Kid) and Daniel (well, if you don’t know who Daniel is, you might need to do a little bit of catching up fam). The catch is it’s picking up on their lives 34 years after the original movie was released! So go watch The Karate Kid – THE ONLY Karate Kid movie that really matters is the original 1984 film starring Pat Morita, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka. That’ll catch you up a whole lot and then you can start watching Cobra Kai πŸ™‚ See there is a method to my madness after all.

Oh Johnny, please be my Sensei!

I don’t know anyone that hasn’t loved this show. The trailer for the first episode has had over 40 million views. And hey, if Cobra Kai isn’t your cuppa tea, that’s all good. We can still be friends πŸ™‚
