The world gets a first look at ‘Charmed’ reboot with the first trailer

In this night and in this hour, we call upon this reboot

After months of speculation, we finally have our first look at what some would call the most controversial reboot in the history of the CW, “Charmed.” The world was greeted with a trailer of the upcoming show. They might as well just gave the world the pilot because that’s how much info they gave away.

“Charmed” follows three sisters: Macy Vaughn, Mel Vera, and Maggie Vera. They discover that they are the most powerful witches of all time – The Charmed Ones. This became clear once their mother got murdered and their powers are activated. In order to find out what happened to their mother, they must use their newfound powers to vanquish demons and to protect innocents.

The trailer shows that it’s after the original series. It will be taking some creative liberties with the show to make it a totally different show. This is probably for the best as the OG “Charmed” is beloved. So making the reboot totally different will help create something that is slightly new. It’s pretty much an older beloved car that they stuck on a new coat of paint and riding it off as a brand new car.

The acting isn’t anything to get excited about. It’s just blah acting. Hopefully, its way better in the full pilot episode because I wasn’t impressed with the new sister. I also wasn’t a big fan of how they tried to make the Vera home looks very similar to the Halliwell home. If they were going to make the show different, then they probably should have changed up the house a bit more than they did.

I’m probably going to watch the “Charmed” reboot because I hope that it does well. I don’t have high expectations of it because nothing will replace or compare to the original. There isn’t a airdate for the première of “Charmed.” It’s scheduled for the fall of 2018.

‘Rise’ shined bright but fell like a shooting star during it’s first season

Don’t Stop Believin’ until your Totally Fucked

When I originally reviewed the NBC television, “Rise,” I gave it a 3 out of 5 and called it a gritty reboot of “Glee.” Now that its first, and only, season is over. I thought it was time to give some final thoughts on “Rise” now that I have seen all the episodes. It’s time to talk about “Rise.”

The show follows a new teacher and his drama club as they put on a controversial play in a conservative town in Pennsylvania. As they get ready to perform “Spring Awakening,” the show also covers all the crap that is going on in their lives. Sexual Abuse, self-acceptance, living in a foster home, teen pregnancy, and just living in a small mind town is what this show covered. 

“Rise” improved after the first episode. It grew and improved to stand on its own two feet and not just be a gritty reboot of “Glee.” It’s rather unfortunate that “Rise” won’t be returning for a second season. I understand and get why but this is the kind of show that is needed. It was extremely depression for most of the episodes. And most of the character had to grow on you. I didn’t like the main teacher until the very last episode. The only characters I truly liked from start to finish was Simon and Gordy.

The storylines for the show was stereotypical and predictable to a certain degree. By the time they turned away from being stereotypical, you got uninterested in them. I do give them props for the way they handled their LGBTQA storylines. They were handled in a way that wasn’t expected and done before on TV, especially on network television. I was invested in them and I would like to know what happened to them after it all ended.

I think if “Rise” didn’t start to find its footing until halfway in, there probably would be a second season. But it lost people with the lack of interesting storylines in the beginning. “Rise” wasn’t a bad show. It was just one that was ahead of its time. I hope there is a chance that it will get saved because I would like to know what is happened after the finale. The finale was depressing. It wasn’t the way that the show should have ended.

The Verdict

“Rise” is a good show. It just took too long to get good. By the time it did, it was too late. I do recommend the show if you are just looking for something to watch. It’s only 10 episodes so it won’t eat up a lot of your time. I only improved my rating by .5 just because it suffered from growing pains and it was bad.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

How to you should watch ’13 Reasons why’ and not be depressed

It’s almost time to watch the new “13 Reasons Why”

With the newest season of “13 Reasons Why” come out tomorrow, I thought I would share my recommendation on how you should go about watching the newest season. I really haven’t seen anyone post about this and I think its something that should be mentioned. Frankly, everyone is going to try to binge watch it and I’m going to tell you why you shouldn’t.

If you haven’t seen the first season of it, then you need to watch that first. You wouldn’t read the second book of the series without reading the first one. When you watch the show, don’t binge watch it. If you try to binge watch the show, you will be an emotional mess. The show is extremely intense and not even the thickest-skinned person would be able to survive a binge watch of “13 Reasons Why.” 

What I did when I watched the show was I would watch two episodes, and then I would switch to a happier show, movie, or something that wouldn’t make me feel depressed. It didn’t really help but it was all this emotion bottled up at one time. It helps take some of the feelings away but it will constantly linger. “13 Reasons Why” will mess you up but it’s all in a slightly good way.

“13 Reasons Why” will make you take a look at how you interact with people. You will regret all the bad interactions and take pride in the little interactions that might have saved that person’s life. It will leave you having a better respect for people and have you looking at the bigger picture. Watch “13 Reasons Why” with an open mind. Don’t just rule it out or quit it just because you think that Hannah Baker was “weak.” You never know who would be your Hannah Baker. Your interactions could impact their life. Take the message and use it to make sure yourself better. Especially if you were similar to one of the characters that affected Hannah Baker negatively.

Hannah Baker wasn’t the only one in the chilling ’13 Reasons Why’ trailer

It’s getting deep in here

The official trailer for the newest season of Netflix’s controversial “13 Reasons why” has come out and it looks like an extremely rough and tense season. Not as intense as the first, but extremely close to it.

The trailer gives us more of chilling look into what we can expect when the series returns the next week. The trailer definitely gives us more of what to expect than what was given during the announcement trailer last week. The second season has moved onto Polaroid pictures. The tapes are pretty much of the past. The first noticable thing was the line on the back of one of the pictures; “Hannah wasn’t the only one.” Looks like there was more students with a similar story to Hannah Baker, the main character of season one who took their own life. 

Clay and Hannah’s mother is pretty much out for justice. Clay follows the Polaroid mystery to the dismay of people tied into the death of Hannah Baker. It gets extremely intense with kidnapping, violence, lots of sex, and to the point where Clay has a gun in his hand. Season two also seems to have a bit of lighter lighting than what was seen in the first season. That just could be because most of the first season took place in flashbacks.

Honestly, this season looks extremely good. The show is going into uncharted terroritory as there was only one book and that was all of season one. It will be extremely interesting to see how the Polaroids are used due to how big the tapes were used to tell the story of Hannah and what lead her to take her life. It also not as dark, which is a plus because the first season was extremely depressing (click here to read my thoughts on it.)

The new season of “13 Reasons Why” is out on May 18th.
