TV REVIEW: Pose – Season 1

I am a huge fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race. I love the artistry of the participants as well as their boundless self-expression and the way they interpret the weekly runway categories in such a creative fashion. The show is the epitome of fierceness and I am living for it.

My love of Drag Race lead me to the documentary Paris is Burning which looks at underground “ball” scene that formed a huge part of the New York LGBT community in the 80’s. I have watched this documentary several times because it is beautiful and heartbreaking and gives such a deeper understanding of the inspiration behind the TV show.

Pose is set in the world of Paris is Burning so you can imagine I was like a moth to a flame.

TV REVIEW: American Horror Story – Freak Show

The formula of American Horror Story is quite unique in that each season uses mostly the same cast but changes the characters and settings and then tells a dark and disturbing tale. Mr O and I watched the first three seasons when they came out but then somehow lost track of the show and stopped watching. A friend recently reminded me of it and as past seasons are on Netflix, I decided to catch up a bit.

MOVIE REVIEW: American Animals (2018)

Mr O and I celebrated out seventh wedding anniversary last week and we were lucky enough to have the O Seniors volunteer to babysit Little O overnight so we could go on a date. They also gave us a voucher for our local cinema as a gift so we decided to check out a film. We were actually hoping for Black Klansman but it wasn’t showing anymore and American Animals was our next choice.
