Need To Watch: Mars

Expand

This 2016 escaped me. Maybe it’s because it’s from the National Geographic channel and got lost in all the noise of quality tv series being released constantly. After watching 2020’s Away with a similar premise, I wanted to find more space-exploration shows. This one has been sitting in my Plex for years. It’s time to dust it off and give it a try.


The year is 2033, and mankind’s first manned mission to Mars is about to become reality. This is the story of how we make Mars home, told by the pioneers making it possible.

The Best Way To Rewatch Doctor Who? Through The Eyes of A Newbie. I’m Hooked on Reaction Videos

Expand

At this point I’ve binged my favorite television shows so much that it’s almost too boring to go through them again. Buffy, Angel, Agents of Shield.. and most recently Doctor Who were at their best when you experienced the twists and shocking moments for the first time. Luckily I found a cheat to go back.. by watching YouTubers reacting to my favorite shows for the first time. It’s become and weird obsession for me. But the writer in me loves to audience feel the joy, shock and sometimes pain fo an expertly crafted story. Doctor Who is a prime example. I’ve never watched a show that loves to keep characters around long enough for you to love them and then rip them away from you. This is like crack to me.

I was a big fan of The Vampire Diaries, but really couldn’t get into the spinoff The Originals. So when the next generation spinoff Legacies finished its second seasons I thought it was time to give it a shot. Almost finished with the first season.. I’m liking it.
