Inception - Eames Arthur and Girl!Eames

Doctor Who Season 12 + Spenser Confidential

Doctor Who Season 12 was much better than S11. I'm glad we're back to exploring the mythology of the series.

Since the episodes didn't air on French TV, I ran into a few spoilers before I was able to watch them. >_> Collapse )

----------

Spenser Confidential was pretty good. Nothing exceptional, but it stars Mark Wahlberg and I like him.

Dare Me + The Iron Will of Genie Lo by FC Yee

The first season of Dare Me was so good! It's a thriller about a squad of cheerleaders and it kept me on the edge of my seat.

I'm so impressed by the talent of cheerleaders. Also, it's always great to watch a show focused on female characters.

It's not technically f/f, but the feelings are text more than subtext and they're really intense.

----------

The Iron Will of Genie Lo by FC Yee was a lot of fun. ^__^ It's the sequel to The Epic Crush of Genie Lo, which I enjoyed a lot too.

I like how these books mix Chinese American culture with Chinese mythology (the Monkey King, my favourite Asian legend). They also have great female characters.
X-Men - Xavier and Magneto

Infinity Son by Adam Silvera

Infinity Son by Adam Silvera was great. Two brothers, Emil and Brighton, live in a world with powered people.

I loved the magic system. Some people are born with powers, others acquire them through a variety of ways. This complexity makes the story more real. It would make a good movie.

Brighton is a YouTuber. Since I enjoy stories with social media, this was right up my alley.

Emil is gay. There was not much m/m yet, but there'll clearly be more in the sequel.
Without Reservations - Chay and Keaton

Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs + Elite Season 3

Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs was excellent, as usual. It's the latest (paperback) book in the Mercy Thompson series, one of my favourite urban fantasy series.

This tome had no Warren/Kyle scenes, but Warren and Kyle made separate appearances. <3

*pets the kitties, Medea and Pirate*

----------

Elite Season 3 was brilliant! This is such a great thriller series.

Yay for more m/m and m/m/f! ♥ There was a little f/f too. Who is even straight in this show? Ha ha! Representation feels so good.
Star Trek - Kirk and Spock

Mars Season 2 + 2036: Origin Unknown

Mars Season 2 was great, just like S1. It's half documentary, half fiction. It alternates between interviews of space people in the present and life on the Mars colony in the future. I strongly recommend it, it's available on Netflix.

Warning: Episode S2E04 is about a contagious and deadly virus, so some of you might want to skip that.

----------

2036: Origin Unknown was very weird. A scientist and an AI discover a giant cube on Mars.

The scientist is played by Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica). The movie is all about her, we barely see any other actors.
Nightrunner - Seregil and Alec

The Iron Ghost by Jen Williams

The Iron Ghost by Jen Williams was excellent. It's the sequel to The Copper Promise, which I talked about here.

Our adventurers are on a new mission, but my dear dragon ladies from Book 1 are still part of the story. I also loved the magical stone animals.

There is minor m/m, as well as a wlw ghost.
OT6 Peace

A Discovery of Witches + The Protector Season 3

The first season of A Discovery of Witches was very enjoyable. I'm always in for a vampire/witch romance. There are demons too and they are pretty chill.

Matthew Goode (Finn in The Good Wife) makes a handsome vampire. Alex Kingston (River Song in Doctor Who) is in this too.

There is some minor f/f. :-)

----------

The Protector Season 3 was great. Collapse )

I guessed who the mole was. \o/
Loveless - Soubi

Siempre Bruja Season 2

Siempre Bruja Season 2 was much better than S1. I only kept watching it to practise my Spanish, but I actually enjoyed this season.

They added a very sexy pirate to the cast. <3 Alicia was great too.

----------

Here in France, schools are closed and visitors aren't allowed in retirement homes. I hope my grandma will be fine. My mum dropped her a bunch of newspapers and crosswords magazines so that she doesn't get bored.

Gatherings of more than 100 people are forbidden, which will affect cinemas. :/ In any case, several movies have already changed their release dates. See you next year, Fast & Furious 9!
