It’s time for something other than book talk this time. You might know that I’m also a TV show enthousiast, or you might not have known. Now you do. There’s a list on my phone where I write down every show I’ve watched so that I don’t forget. I will now use this knowledge to provide you with five of my favourite TV shows that I consider vastly underrated. All of them have a healthy 4 seasons (okay not all) with 40 min episodes. So get ready, take some popcorn and be prepared to all of these to your watchlist!

“There’s no magic more powerful than the human spirit.”
In the Netherlands, we have a few big cinemas, and Pathé is one of them. Every once in a while, they organize the “PAC Festival”, which is basically five previews of movies that are coming out soon (movies always come out “soon”… don’t they?).
Now, my mum and I are both lovers of film and she’s told me before that they were hosting this. Sadly we were never able to go before because of ~life~. But on Sunday, February 5th, it was finally time. We were going to be locked in the cinema from 10.30am until 11.15pm. Which was really fucking exciting.

“She does not know how to feel safe.” As I said it I knew it was true. “We will have to teach her how.”
So, my first blog post. Who would’ve thought that after a year of tragically bad captions on Instagram, I would upgrade to providing you with even longer pieces of text?! I sure as hell wouldn’t have thought that. But I’m glad that I did, because I feel like it was time to take this relationship we have to the next level.
