    i highly recommend watching “circle” on netflix! it’s a movie. but my sister and i stumbled upon it one day and it was like a hidden gem. it’s about all of these people who vote someone out of the circle every few minutes and it kills them until the last person. it is really interesting how prejudice comes into play. i recommend watching it with a friend and talking it through because a lot of stuff happens very fast. i also recommend looking up theories after!

    Fleabag is so good! Its got that dry Brit comedic sense with a bit of US black comedy sensibility thrown into the storytelling. I was trying to describe it to a friend and ended up saying ‘like Peep Show with a Bojack Horseman streak’. I didn’t think of Fargo but it totally sits in that vein too. Also sorry to be nitpicky but didn’t Boo get hit by a bicycle, then a car and then another bike?

    One show that everyone seems to overlook but deserves the attention would be DARK. It's a german TV show that takes the idea of time travel to a whole another level. It is crazy, it will give you goosebumps, you will not sleep, it is that good. Changing the topic, I would really like to say, I am so glad that someone finally recognized the TV show Maniac, it is such a good show, soooo unique and worth watching.

I'm not writing that to say that you shouldn't complain, but to tell you that you're not alone girl 💓 Also, I thoroughly enjoyed this video, hearing your thoughts on all those shows was really thought-provoking.

    ArubPirms dienas

    Honestly I used to be a Tina Fey stan too but she is a white feminist and Kimmy Schmidt is the greatest example of this. From a whitewashed Native American character which drew criticism - Fey's response was doubling down on that storyline - to Kimmy's Vietnamese boyfriend's name being the butt of the least imaginative joke. That's not even including the episode supposedly critiquing outrage culture that somehow ends up being at the expense of Asian Americans. Sorry, but Tina Fey is not someone I would sacrifice any child for.

    RAWNAA SAMIRPirms dienas

    i recommend you to watch ¨The bold type¨, 3 girl friends, they are feminists, powerful, smart , and fearless, ur gonna like it because it have a fashion sense and one of the characters is actually into the fashion world, and she is trying to discover what she wanna do in this major, she tried to be stylist, designing, and modeling, and this show represent women issues, and it also have an lgbtq characters, it is the best, it represent all the women.

    Ima just review your reviews. I didnt watch fleabag, so i‘m intrigued. Crashing was fine Fargo seems cool, i might watch it.. Love: i hated both characters. I still kinda liked the show because i‘m sad and lonely myself but goddamn these people are unlikable Love new girl, agreed Fuck parcs and rec. Didnt watch 30rock, but iwanna watch it Unbreakable: thought it was unfunny and predictable so i stopped watching at some point but maybe it has some merit. Didnt watch sex and the city. Dont trust the b in apt 23 is very chill and enjoyable. Jane by design, NO CLUE what it is.. House is a dick, but decent show. Stopped watching at some point tho Bojack horseman is probably the best animated show i‘ve ever seen (🎶back in the ninetees i was in a very faamous tv-shoow🎵 fucking amazing) John mulaney is cool, i like him too. Big mouth is cool too. Daniel sloss, who dis? Katherine ryan is cool af. Love her too Bo burnham is honestly the best Years and years, dont know of this show The girlfriend experience, no clue. Maniac is surprisingly good. Jonah hill is way too talented Big little lies is also unknown to me Friends from college. Like the cast, disliked the show. I stopped watching tho, so once again, it might be good. Better call saul is soooo good. Fucking love the show. (I know my comment would be better with timestamps but i‘m lazy, so i‘m sorry) You missed some shows i like: Hollywood Mindhunter Community Vikings (first 4seasons) Love death and robots Mad men Dogs of berlin The end of the fucking world (s1) Peaky blinders F is for family (bill burrs animated show) Master of none Ozark Brookyln99 Suits Castle The menatlist Lucifer Prisonbreak (s1 especially) People probably know most of em but some might be unknown. My favourite is californication btw. Loved that one.

    Hey Ashley, I've enjoyed listening to you for the past few years and feel like I can really relate with you. The way you express the intricacies of life is something I especially admire. Some of the shows you recommended that I've watched are John Mulaney and Love. Idk if you watch kdramas, tbh I don't really, but there's this one I recently watched that I think you might like called Itaewon class. It touches on social taboos in South Korea "A sociopath. An ex-convict. A transgender. A high school dropout. And a guy of half Korean, half African descent," and overcomes it in the most bad ass way with an OP girl who isn't that delicate dependent-on-a-guy-type. In fact, she is a girl that helps save and heals the main guy. Anyway ahhh I'm so grateful to be able to hear your brain during this time. I have such few friends and the few that I do I don't get ones that do deep dive conversations like you - this includes my SO that I live with -sigh-. It's quite refreshing. Cheers! P.S. I really think you should pay a visit to your family and take a break some time with everything going on :')

It's about Armageddon(The End of the world Bible Version) but it's very funny. An Angel and a Demon who have lived on earth together since the beginning of it are the main focus.
