News Train: Sci-fi Bliss!

Sci-fi loving friends rejoice! Glorious news awaits us.

Upcoming Shows:

Star Trek: Discovery – Finally, a Star Trek show is coming back to TV! Slated for January, the show is said to air its first episode on CBS and then the rest on their CBS internet channel (which you must pay for). But good news, Netflix is stating that they’re going to pick the show up and air the episodes 24 hours after each airing. Please be true!!

Lost In Space remake – I… I literally just learned about this. Oh my goodness, I want this so bad now. I’m a HUGE fangirl of the original show (you can read my review of the show this Wednesday). Netflix is apparently looking to do a 10 episode show in 2018. Please show! YOU GOT MY HOPES UP!! Take responsibility and deliver!

Current Shows:

Six Flying Dragons – I FINISHED!!!!!!!!!! I will now have a moment of silence for a show that was absolutely heartfelt, epic and utterly worth watching all 50 episodes. Thank you, show. Thank you.

Parks and Rec – My brainless fun. Plus, the strong female roles and friendships that are portrayed are really cool.

Jane the Virgin – yeah, I jumped on the bandwagon late. I’m pretty aware that CW shows are melodramatic crazy-silliness and yet this show is really growing on me. Despite the melodrama (and I love how it’s played ironically which makes me more fun), there are some surprisingly real moments. And I relate so, so much to Jane… sometimes I hurt when she does. (Is that a good thing???) I did have a shock when I realized that the show already has two seasons out… (for some reason, time had escaped me and I thought only one season had gone by) which means a lot of episode to catch up. *Facepalm* Heeeelp!


Star Trek Beyond – saw the movie and while it wasn’t everything I wanted it to be, it was much better than the second movie in my opinion. However, I learned that Chris Hemsworth is coming back for the fourth movie and now I’M SO PUMPED! Can Kirk be reunited with his dad (through time travel or whatever) and have crazy adventures with him?? PRETTY PLS WITH CHERRY ON TOP!

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Ahem.
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
