I watch a lot of TV. Some think it’s odd because I also read just as much. Often times, I forget what I saw, so in an attempt to document my life and reflect, I compiled and ranked noteworthy shows of 2018.
Black Mirror S4 – 4 / 5
I need to be mentally prepared to watch and process this show, preventing me to binge-watch. However, it makes me think twice about how technology is impacting our daily lives and what I need to look out for when I make mindless decisions about technology.

For the first time in my life, I documented and reviewed all the movies I watched throughout the year.
I tweaked and changed the format throughout the year and I’m quite happy with this format and result. The fifteen movies below are rank ordered, starting from the ones that I enjoyed the most, to my least favorite.
The Spy Gone North – 4.5 / 5
Hands down, one of my favorite Korean movie of this year. The acting, the action, and the storyline kept me thinking and interested throughout the two hour movie.

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a TV junkie. And below are some shows that I spent endless hours watching.
Madame Maisel (Season 1)
What a great show! I binge-watched the first season and can’t wait for the second season! It’s such a feel-good, women-empowerment, witty, and enjoyable show that I can’t stop raving about it.
But if I had to put on a tv critic hat is that the characters are a bit too cliche and stereotypical. And perhaps that’s what makes the show easy to watch, but hope that they add dimensions in upcoming seasons. Read More »
