The Sinner: Season 2

This season was less good than the previous. It’s still binge worthy and the suspense is defenitely there, but it looks grey and therefore depressive.

I don’t know why they have this urge to make thrillers look so grey. My visual cortex sure likes to see some warmer tones than this cold filter. The amount of TV-shows that I switched off after 5 minutes for this reason is starting to pile up.

Anyway, I continued to watch the second season, and I’m so happy I did. The suspense alone is pretty addictive. Eventhough, it’s a slow burner, the plot twists make it all worth it. Also, Bill Pullman is perfect in his role as Detective Ambrose. His character has been given more room to develop during this season.

All in all, a good thriller if you ask me. I hope that the third season will be as good as its predecessors (just a little more color please).

Paranormal Activity

Sisqi

This is by far my favourite horror series ever created. I remember how terrified I was after watching the first movie, I could barely sleep at night. Meanwhile, years have passed, and I’m still as terrified as the first time.

One thing I’ve learned is that no matter what weird stuff you may think is happening, NEVER set up a camera to capture these events. Especially not in your bedroom while you are sleeping. This is one subject that I find utterly disturbing. Add some haunted-, possession-like elements and you got my skin crawling.

Extra kudos for the beautiful houses in all the movies and the Christmas theme in the Ghost Dimension.

Paranormal Activity is my favourite serie of horror movies.

We recently re-watched them all, one movie each Saturday evening. While I remembered that we always had a good time watching them, I forgot how powerful they were.

Horror is very subjective to people, what frightens a person, may not scare another… On my wife and me, found footages are very effective. I think that they are only second to exorcism and posession movies. So, when those two themes are mixed together, in a nice californian setting, all the ingredients are there to make our perfect fright cocktail.

The Sinner: Season 1

This is a TV-show that I watched in several moments. The first time, I watched 2 episodes and gave up, thinking it would be a horrific drama.

Months later, my husband and I wanted to give it another try, and now we’re happy we did. This TV-show is the perfect example of why I should never give up after one episode.

The Sinner is an amazing psychological thriller with a plot twist that I never saw coming. The inconsistencies in the story can be forgiven for an otherwise perfect roller coaster of suspense and mystery.

Also, Bill Pullman is so intense, he created an exceptional ambience throughout the entire season. An amazing performance. I hope season 2 will be as great as the first one!

I wish there was 10 more seasons of…

The first answer that came to my mind was Riverdale. But that was based on a craving, there must be other TV shows that deserve it better…

As excellent as Star Trek Voyager or Stargate SG-1 are, they are already well wrapped.

So, my final answer is Twin Peaks. Not the Twin Peaks of the second or the third season (don’t get me started about the third)… I mean ten more seasons as good as the first.

How cool would have it been if Dale Cooper would have had 9 more murders to investigate (1 per season), with the red room mystery in the background?

My crochet projects

Five years ago, I started to crochet a blanket. Due to the lack of time and many other reasons, I’ve never finished it.

A few weeks ago, I decided to pick my little project back up, and realized how much I’ve missed it. I’m at 67 of 90 patches now. Getting closer to the end.

Once my blanket will be done, I’ll make another. Meanwhile, I’ll also be discovering how to crochet amigurumi, but more about that later.
