A lot is going on. All the time. Everywhere. And we publish a lot of content every week, some of it breaking news, other more editorial stuff, as well as reviews and teases of shows and movies to come. We understand you can’t always be on top of everything. And as such, you might miss stuff we wish …well, you wouldn’t.
So, every week, I’m going to comb through the site and point you, once again, to the stuff you should take the time to read. Either because it’s really funny, or because it’s a particularly good take, or just because I liked it. This is my list, after all.
Here are my picks for the 5 can’t miss Fangirlish articles of this week:
Did I only pick Jade’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist advanced review because I wholeheartedly agree with everything she’s saying and with the things she’s not saying but is thinking and I know she’s thinking because I’m thinking? Maybe, but I also really like how she said a lot and yet absolutely nothing, and how the more people I see trying to interpret her words, the more I’m absolutely sure no one is gonna be able to guess what’s coming.
Ted Lasso has been one of those shows that I haven’t wanted to finish, I just started it, loved it, and have been resisting getting through it because that means there’s nothing more! I cannot take that. But that doesn’t mean I wasn’t super excited to see the coverage from Paley Fest, because some of my favorite things come out of panels like this one, and Shelby pulled out some of the funniest, most charming tidbits from the panel.
The Shadow and Bone trailer was both a lot and like, nothing. It had a lot of cool moments, and yet there’s still so much more to see. But – here’s the thing, there’s even more to it than most people have noticed, so that’s why Jasmine had to go and make a list of the best moments that had about twenty different things, because WHAT IS BREVITY WHEN IT COMES TO THIS SHOW.
Keep Calm, Trope On is one of my favorite columns that we do here at Fangirlish, because so many of the tropes Grace discusses are things we don’t always think about as we’re watching, but that are really freaking common. This week she’s going into the whole “I just want to be normal” thing people with powers or abilities do, and it would be hilarious if it weren’t so …eye opening.
I know nothing about Godzilla, and very little about King Kong. I’m not a monster movie person in general, and I just stay away from movies like this one because I do not typically care. Lyra, however, is a big monster movie person, but she’s also got this knack for describing things in a way that are funny, and that almost, almoooost makes me want to give this movie a try.
I had a chance to interview Chicago Fire‘s Miranda Rae Mayo this week, and what a lovely experience that was. I have nothing but good things to say about her, as the interview proves, and she’s such a kind, gentle and inspiring soul that I will be sure to follow her to whatever projects she wants to do.
