It’s been probably about a month since I’ve seen Moonlight, but for some odd reason I waited until now to give my review. I can’t tell you why I waited, but I did. Regardless, here we are. I’ll issue my one and only warning now. This has spoilers!
In one of those moments when I let my mind wander, I started thinking about this year’s election. And I wasn’t thinking about who offers the better healthcare plan, or whose economic policy will better benefit America’s future. I was thinking about what this election year reminds me of in terms of TV and film. And here is the list I came up with.
Do you think it’s fair that this guy I’ve been seeing always expects me to pick up the check when we go out? We’ve only been dating for about 3 weeks, and no matter where we go, he expects me to pay for both of us. I’m getting tired of it. He never offers to pay. Don’t get me wrong, I have the funds to pay, I just don’t feel like it should be on me to do so every time. Especially when he is a grown man. What would you do in this situation?
With the reboot of the classic Roots hitting airways this week, I’ve seen a number of posts on social media platforms and blogs bashing the miniseries and blacks recent depiction in film. While I’ve admittedly not been the biggest supporter of this remake (I just feel certain projects should not be rebooted), I’m not against the miniseries for the same reasons most naysayers are. But I most certainly understand the naysayers’ frustrations.
So while I’ve never written about a web series before, I felt compelled to write about the new smash hit About Him. Without hesitation or pause, I can genuinely say that this Signal 23 TV show represents some of the best original programming online. Having only watched two episodes so far, I’ve been thoroughly impressed and entertained.
As 2015 winds down and 2016 vastly approaches, there are a few things I wanted to share with you all. I want to thank you all for visiting According to T. When I started this blog in May of this year, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had dreams it would become this great site, but I secretly was nervous it was going to fail. Call it the pessimist in me. Well thanks to you the readers, According to T is steadily growing and I’m grateful. It feels good to know that people not only visit my blog, but enjoy the content and are appreciative my little nuggets of wisdom. Going forward, I hope to provide you all with even better material next year. Because most of what I post is contingent upon questions you all ask, make sure you get those into me. Remember, no subject is off limits and everything is kept Anonymous. So here’s to 2016! Before I say bye to 2015, let me leave you all with my year end round-up.
