My TV Year In Review

All the TV shows I follow have finished airing their latest seasons so I thought I'd do a seasons' end review for them all.

Reign (Season 3)

This season started out so bad but improved so much! It was much better than the last season. I'm so glad they turned the romance down a notch and increased the politics because that's what I came here for! I hated Elizabeth at first but she grew on me. I had started hating the weak Mary but finally the writers did her some justice by the end and made her the strong and fierce Mary I knew and loved! I enjoyed the political drama so much and I loved how Catherine was at the heart of it. This season saw the departure of many of my beloved characters. They will be missed. :'( I just hope they don't kill off more of my favorite characters. Like Leith. And give Bash a bigger role next season please! He's an amazing character and deserves his own story-line. I think it's been a long time coming and I'm glad he was getting more scenes by the end of this season so I hope next season is bigger for him. I'm looking forward to the rivarly between Mary & Elizabeth next season and I can't wait to see how Narcisse will take his revenge on Elizabeth!

Supernatural (Season 11)

What was this season?! We had God's sister, and God, and what not and it was so boring! I don't even remember most of the season TBH. I remember struggling through each episode hoping it would be interesting. But the Darkness story-line was just not for me. The only episodes I enjoyed were the filler case episodes. Lucifer Cas isn't Cas. I want Cas! And can you make Destiel happen already?! Character wise they were all the same. I loved Sam & Dean & Crowley. I enjoyed Rowena at first but then got tired of her. Beloved character deaths :'( It's just the story I had a problem with. I hope next season is better.

The Vampire Diaries (Season 7)

It's only the seventh season? I feel like it's been a lifetime since this show used to actually be good. Now it's just absurd stories trying to pull through from one season to the other. I mean what even was this season?! During most of the episodes I sat there laughing at the absurdity and swooning over Ian's hotness. Damon was the only good thing on the show. But his character's getting ruined too. So I'd say Ian's looks (& those gorgeous eyes) are the only good thing on the show. I feel like Paul's so tired of the show that he doesn't even bother changing his facial expressions. He has the same face in every scene! Bored. The story was all over the place and had so many plot holes! I hated most of the new characters. The character deaths didn't even bother me TBH. Just let Matt die please. I feel sorry for the poor guy. I hate how Bonnie gets treated on the show. I hate how Damon is with everyone and gets away with it too. This show needs to end. I heard the next season was the last one. Lets hope so.

The 100 (Season 3)

Why show?!!! Why you do this to me?!!! Lincoln was my favorite character ever! I loved him and they killed him and now my heart is broken </3 I didn't like this season much compared to the previous seasons. Not only because of the pointless deaths but I didn't like the overall story. It was interesting and very engaging but I felt like something was missing. I've started hating Jasper. If anyone had to be killed then it should've been him. I loved the rest my squad though <3 I've also come to really like Murphy. I really hope they don't kill off any of my faves next season. I feel next season will be a hard one. I wish my babies would get a break.

Shadowhunters (Season 1)

I didn't like the first book much and I really didn't like the movie but I was still excited for the show and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was! Sure the acting and editing was sort of sloppy at first but I think over the season they improved A LOT! This was my favorite show this season. They changed up the story a lot and I'm glad because I think they made it better. I LOVED the characters, especially Izzy & Alec. Malec be my new favorite OTP :') I got so attached to all of them! And that season finale!!! I can't wait for the next season and the awesomeness it would bring!

Once Upon A Time (Season 5)

This was the Dark Swan & Hades season, right? Or was Dark Swan last season? I do remember Hades being there this season... See my problem? This used to be my favorite show. This season was so boring though. There were good parts but overall it was meh. Especially compared to the previous seasons. I don't have much to say about it because I don't really remember much. Except Hercules being such a cutie! I wish they would've kept him for more than one episode.

Well this was my TV year in review! What shows did you watch this season? Any good recs? And did you watch any of these seasons? If yes then I'd love to hear your thoughts about them!

Fangirling Over Doctors (Spoiler Free)

Not real doctors (not that they aren't amazing as well) but I'm talking about the new kdrama (Korean drama) Doctors (a.k.a. Doctor Crush) which has won the hearts of many as soon as it started airing. Yes, that new Park Shin Hye drama that everyone, including me, was skeptical about. Well I've kinda fallen in love with it. Okay not kinda, I'm completely fallen head over heels in love with it! And I'm here to fangirl over it today!

This drama! THIS DRAMA! Is ruining my life! It's so so good! 4 episodes have aired to date and it has made me laugh, cry, hate, love and feel all kinds of emotions! And that too from the first episode! It was love at first sight with this drama.

You know how Park Shin Hye has always played that poor, weak girl in need of prince charming? Well she is that girl no more! In Doctors she plays a tough cookie who isn't afraid to kick some butt! And boy can she kick! I had no idea Park Shin Hye would be this good a fighter! Them high kicks girl! The fighting scenes were easily my favorite part! And though I haven't watched Pinocchio (I know! I'm so bad! I can't count the times this drama has been recommended to me! Chill, I'm getting to it!) I must say Park Shin Hye's acting has improved A LOT! Let's hope her kissing has too!

I have never seen nor heard of Kim Rae Won before but *heart eyes*. I love nice guys! I'm so tired of all the bad boys in dramas! So I love me some nice guy who smiles and cares and is totally adorbs! And Hong Ji Hong (the character played by Kim Rae Won) is all that and more! He's a doctor turned high school teacher and I can totally see why so many girls have a crush on him! Not only is he really nice and caring but is an upstanding citizen and a great doctor! Me being a medstudent, I was so totally impressed by that scene in which he saves the pregnant lady. Plus he is pretty straightforward so (I hope) no drama! You know, of the relationship kind. At least not from him.

I was kind of worried about the age gap. Though the couples in almost all the dramas I've seen with a huge age gap have been amazing (Secret Love Affair, Prime Minister & I), I'm always worried about the chemistry. Well nobody need worry with Doctors because the chemistry between Park Shin Hye & Kim Rae Won is so good! They just click together so well! I started shipping them from the very first kick! Definitely going into my favorite OTPs list!

The story so far has been so amazing! It's very rare that I develop such a deep bond with characters but I did with this drama. Their joy is my joy, their pain is my pain. I can't count the times this drama has made me cry, be it happy tears or sad. All them feels!

I also love the medical aspect of it. It's weird how happy I got when I saw a copy of KLM's Clinically Oriented Anatomy in one of the scenes. I was like I read that book! That's where I study anatomy from! I know, I'm pathetic. But even though sometimes what they show is exaggerated, I do love watching a drama about a profession I'm pursuing.

The characters have been written so well! The villains aren't bad just for the sake of it. I can totally understand how and why they turned out that way. Even the side characters have important roles to play in the story. And some of them are such cute bunnies I can't even! My favorite side character till now would be Hye Jeong's grandmother! This lady is so amazing!! I can't go on or I'll start crying again but I just love her!!

If you haven't started watching this drama yet then I hope I persuaded you into doing so because this drama is amazing and you're missing out on a lot if you're not watching it. And if you are then let me know what you think about it in the comments below!!
