Justice League Trailer 1: Thoughts and Feelings

This morning, Warner Bros released the first Justice League trailer. I’ve watched it a few times now, and honestly, it looks fine. I don’t hate, but I don’t love it. I’m in between.

“This is US” Season 1 Episode 3 Review: Comfort Zones

Well, the show has finally found it’s groove! I’m not going to lie, before this episode started I was feeling antsy about whether or not This is US was going to switch over to my do-not-watch list, but thankfully the show has finally shown us what it’s going to be about: The three kids learning how to live their lives in the way they want to, and the parents learning how to raise three kids at once. I now understand where each story is trying to go, and that makes watching the show so much more enjoyable. Continue reading ““This is US” Season 1 Episode 3 Review: Comfort Zones”
