Heya Aspiring Gurus!
It is that time of the month again, where I share what I have been watching. I always limit these to 5, because I think anymore would get too long. I have actually finished a few series and have watched quite a few movies these past months. I think that I could make four of these, no joke. I might just do that. lol. No, I will have one today and maybe, I’ll upload another one next weekend. I will do four series this week and one movie. All of my shows on ABC Family have ended their seasons recently, so I wanted to do them while they are still fresh in my mind. I watched all of the tv shows while they were airing on cable.
Pretty Little Liars Season 5
This season was so intense and exciting. I could not believe the ending! What a twist! For a long time, I thought A was HannAh, but then, Shepard told us that she would never let A be one of the four girls. So, there blew my theory out of the water. I don’t want to say any spoliers for Dan [say hi!], but you NEED to watch this show. I need someone to gossip with about what is going to happen next. I hope none of them get killed off of the show and it would make things more interesting if Ali is released from prison, which in light of things, will probably happen. I’m bummed that I cannot say anything more for fear of spoilers, but this show has never lost it’s fire. It continues to burn just as bright as season 1. It has been picked up for two more seasons. Could we be looking at least one more A in season 7? I love this show, but honestly? The A game cannot last forever. I hope these actresses get picked for movies and other great tv shows. I would cult follow Ashley Benson and Lucy Hale any day. 5 out of 5 stars
Switched @ Birth Season 4
Talk about losing their fire, I think this show has gone downhill, but the season did pick up at the end. The middle of the season fell flat for me. Is anyone feeling this way? I feel like season 5 should be this show’s last. It’s been dragged out for far too long. I would love to see Lucas play in some other show or to finally come out with his own album. I watch the show, because I have invested too much years into it. I haven’t felt excited about it in a while. It has it’s moments, but with shows like PLL, it just doesn’t compete. 3 out of 5 stars
Chasing Life Season 1
I love this show! I cannot believe how it ended! I cannot wait for Season 2 to come on, so I can see what happens next. This show is really great. It had a couple of ify moments, but overall, I am totally invested in this show. I didn’t think that I would really like it, but it surprised me. It wasn’t at all how I thought it would be. It is very drama filled and entertaining, but it also brings up hard issues in a way that isn’t forceful. This show has made me cry and I love shows that can bring out true emotions from me. This is a must watch. 4 out of 5 stars
The Fosters Season 2
I have to say that I didn’t think this show could get any better, but it did. It dealt with so many different issues and this truly was a family show about a very diverse family. Out of all of ABC Family’s shows, I think that this one really shows you what a true family is like in America. Of course it is dramatized for entertainment, but at its core, it really is a true reflection of what is out there. I look forward to season 3 to see what happens with Callie’s adoption. For some reason, I think that she is going to just choose her dad anyway. Does anyone else get that feeling? 4 out of 5 stars
Men, Women, & Children
I will start off by saying that I had high expectations for this movie based on its great cast of characters and actors and actresses. This move was a total flop to me. It was boring and only really had a small amount of appeal. I thought that it would be really funny, but it was a very serious and at times disturbing movie about how controlling parents can be. It is also about how stupid parents can be as well, when it comes to their children. I didn’t like this movie at all and don’t think that it’s worth watching. I felt like I wasted my time and money. I rented this from Redbox. 2 out of 5 stars
Well, that is it. It was a mixed bunch and the movie was a total fail. What have you been watching and what are your thoughts on the PLL finale???

I really want to see Men Women and Children because I love Jennifer Garner, but I’m sad to hear it wasn’t very good. She was also in Alexander’s no good horrible very bad day, which I actually quite liked even though it was also pretty silly.
It was disappointing, so don’t have high expectations like I did. 🙂
I haven’t heard anything good about it so I definitely don’t have high expectations at all.
I have Pretty Little Liars on my netflix queue and will watch it at some point soon! I am curious since you like it so much. Not sure how many seasons netflix has of it. I’ve been watching a mix of comedy sit coms (like Family Guy) that are really re-runs but no commercials on netflix and its good to laugh now and then (and since seen them before, can do other stuff like paint my nails and not feel like I may miss something while doing the paint part ha!). Then watched one horror movie, a creature feature, nothing unique there but was fine in terms of the basics I look for (acting not hugely terrible, mostly done OK). movie was called Animal. The “creature” was somewhat unique looking so that was good (could be too much for some I suppose; it is a horror movie with all the typical features of that genre). watched the season of Supernatural that netflix added a while ago (had missed some of those episodes so some was new to me).
Netflix has all four seasons, I think. I know that the fifth season will be released in the summer. I love it. I also love the books, though they are way different than the show in a good way. Both the show and books are equally as good. I need to watch Supernatural. I didn’t see ALL of the episodes, but I watched five seasons I think. Usually with show like that, I’ll go on Netflix and start an episode and if I remember it, I skip to the next. I love DEAN! TEAM DEAN.
