What did I Watch this Year?

‘The most dangerous thing about Pandora is that you might grow to love her too much.’
Jake Sully

2022 Edition!

Hello, dearies! 💖

Almost the end of the year, and some of this time you think back to what you read, watched or did. Mostly you cannot remember or think it was not this year. For months I cannot remember what I did because it was a mesh of months for me.

But I can try to remember for you, and this top shows of 2022 that I watched.

Flashback: Downton Abbey (TV)

Happy Friday, dearies! ❤

Another week has gone by, and here we are with a new Flashback, this time for this amazing show that I do not get tired of re-watching.

Downton Abbey. Haven’t done a Flashback Friday in a while, so it deserves to be an incredible one, and I think I chose a good story and show. There are movies, yes, but this one is about the TV Show that aired from 26 September 2010 – 25 December 2015 on ITV. 📺

Quick fun fact about House of the Dragon

So, what about Hightower?

Hello, dearies! 🐉

You know what’s funny about House of the Dragon storyline and promo is that they say, return to Westeros and meet the history of Targaryen and Hightower, like fans of the show will hardly know what you’re referring to with Hightower, they scratched the surface with that house.

I bet not even half of those who watched the show would even be able to say, ah yes I know that house.

And no, the one you’re probably thinking about is the Tyrells, who are from Highgarden.  

In the books, of course, we know a lot more about them like the fact that Margery Tyrell’s mother was (is?) from Hightower.

Fact

House Hightower of the Hightower is one of the most powerful of the noble houses in the Reach. Their seat is the Hightower, located in the city of Oldtown. The sigil of House Hightower is a stone white watchtower, with a fire on the top.

So, yes, just a fun fact for everyone out there, I saw a promo vid for House of the Dragon and thought, huh, do they even know?

hightower house books

I’m currently reading Fire and Blood, and it’s interesting, to say the least, I hope to finish it before the show is out, but as most of George R. R. Martin’s books are a thousand million pages long, then that remains to be seen if I’ll finish quickly or not.

I’ll keep you posted and look for the review on it.

Hello, dearies! Happy Easter Week! 🐇

I wanted to do an entry on Moon Lovers since I finished it a while back because I fell hard for the story and the characters, and even though the finale was not my favourite, it was still a darn good drama.

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo’s name came to me while I was watching an episode of Knowing Bros (Ask Us Anything/Brother School), and IU and Lee Joon Gi were there as guests. It’s a great episode you should watch it.

Hello, dearies! How is January ending?

I managed to post more than I expected this month, so I’m happy.

I recently finished Hotel Del Luna, and I had my suspicion that I would like it but I really enjoyed it, and it was so much fun to watch with my mom, she joined me mid-story but caught on quickly, and was into the story. Is something else when the elderly love K-Dramas as much as you do, you know they’re good. 😀

Where? Netflix.

Based on a Book? Yes.

For the review of the books, you can go here: Idhun’s Memories. 📙

Hello, dearies! It’s August of 2021, as in we are past the mid-year mark, as we are almost looking at Autumn in the eye, and I finally watched the second part of The Idhun Chronicles, I know it took me some time, but I already knew what it was about and where it was headed knowing the end of the book and all, and knowing that there are no more seasons or parts or nothing, so I was taking my time, and I had a lot of work, now I am a free bird, and can do other things.

I am not sure if you watched the first part of these cool animated series, but you probably should. It’s on Netflix, and you can read my review here:

We Need to Talk about GOT: Finale

So this is the year of endings, apparently. Shadowhunters TV, The Big Bang Theory, Endgame. I am sure others as well but those are at the top of my mind, and nothing like last Sunday’s GOT Finale, which could not be farther from what I was expecting yet it did not disappoint me in one thing: I was not expecting more than what it happened.

If you thought this would be a complete happy and tearful one, then you are in for a treat. I will not trash it, much. I think. As usual if you have not watched yet and have not read the books, or the last book published A Dance with Dragons, then stop here for the night is dark and full of spoilers.
