These 5 Shows Are Okay To Watch

Many people watch television shows and movies for the following reasons:

  • To be entertained.
  • To have an idea as to what is trending.
  • To satisfy their curiosity.
  • To pass the time.

Sometimes the shows that we watch will meet our expectations and at other times, we are left feeling dissatisfied (As a matter of fact, our taste in television shows are unique in the sense that someone else will enjoy a television show that we disliked).

Today, I am going to share with you, some of the television shows and movies that I thought were okay (Please note that I referred to them as “Okay” and not as “Splendid” because they are not the best that the movie and television industry has to offer).

So, without further ado, it is time to have a look at my unique list of television shows and movies.

1.) Charmed

The version of Charmed that I am referring to here is not the one that aired from Wednesday the 7th of October, 1998 to Sunday the 21st of May, 2006 (which I loved by the way), but the rebooted version of the television series; which debuted on The CW on Sunday the 14th of October, 2018.

This modern version of Charmed is way different from the original television series (The original has its fictional setting in San Fransico, whereas, the current version has its fictional setting in a place called, Hilltowne and the family name was changed from Halliwell to Vera).

What remains the same is that The Charmed Ones are the most powerful witches around ― a trio of witches who protect humanity from demons and other evil creatures from the supernatural world.

Madeleine Mantock plays Macy Vaughn, the eldest sister. She is the nerd in the family (she has a Ph.D. in molecular genetics) and she is also practical, driven and shy. Her special power is telekinesis.

Melonie Diaz acts as Mel Vera, the middle half-sister. She is a highly passionate feminist, a lesbian and a graduate student in the women’s studies department at Hilltowne University. Her special power is freezing time.

Sarah Jeffery acts as Meggie Vera, the youngest sister. She is kindhearted and vivacious. Her special power is empathy.

Rupert Evans is the person who portrays Harry Greenwood ― the whitelighter who is tasked with guiding and protecting the witches.

Charmed was created by Constance M. Burge and was developed for television by Amy Rardin, Jennie Snyder Urman and Jessica O’Toole.

Fans of this American fantasy-drama television series can view new episodes of the show on The CW on Sundays at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

  1. I follow your blog.

    My brother Josh and I are both fans of the Star Wars universe, and I found it nice today to read the section of your post about Rise of Skywalker. I am a fan to the extent that I probably watch Star Wars videos on YouTube daily. While a pleasure to look at what you recounted about Episode IX of the Star Wars features, it is true also that it is available to stream at Disney+, in case you are less familiar with Disney’s streaming service, than with Amazon Prime.

    Good luck with your blog, and have a great springtime. Take care

    1. 🙂 I was not 100% sure that “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” was still available on Disney+ for streaming (They, of course, would have been the first company to stream it).

      Thank you for your valuable input!

  2. Hello Renard! It has been a while since I commented on one of your posts. I REALLY enjoyed this one.
    Honestly I did not like either version of “Charmed”.
    I’ve not seen the movies altho’ I’d like to see Luke Skywalker’s story (out of curiousity).
    I DID watch ALL of “Star Trek:DS9” & I really enjoyed the series. However it was not as splendid as “Star Trek: Next Generation”….
    “DS9” filled in the need for something “Star Trek” if that makes sense to you?
    Funny that you brought “DS9” into your post as a group of us were online on FB talking about all the “Star Trek” series. Everyone liked “DS9” but we all agreed that there were better series….
    What we watch & enjoy is highly subjective….we are all so varied.
    I have personal case here. I am sure you have heard of “NCIS” series.” NCIS” is okay. “NCIS: Los Angeles” is REALLY good. My favorite tho’ is “NCIS: New Orleans”!!! I ADORE that show. It’s filmed in New Orleans & the characters are so ineractive…so believable. I heard from a friend it is cancelled. Figures as it is my favorite….
    Has that ever happened to you with a series of shows Renard??
    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

    1. 🙂 Yes, I am familiar with the entire “NCIS” franchise (I have not watched any of them in quite a long time).

      I also know what it is like to have shows that I love cancelled; for example, “Dark Matter” and “Iron Fist”.

      Thank you for reading and commenting!

  3. “1.) Charmed”
    That show was already a little girls thing with the original cast. More fashion show than actual content.

    “highly passionate feminist, a lesbian and a graduate student in the women’s studies”
    Not a character but a fabricated fantasy version of a real woman. 100% wish-fullfillment nonsense.

    “Her special power is empathy.”
    Whoa! What a super duper special power! All enemies need to fear her empathy once she’s unleashed! 😮

    “2.) Suicide Squad”
    “In a nutshell, the show Suicide Squad is about Task Force X ― a response team that is comprised of criminals and supervillains.”
    Worst film in quite a while. Bombed with critics and fans and was an altogether big fat disappointment. They made every mistake a film production can do. DO NOT WATCH!

    “3.) Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”
    Really Renard, really?
    Even Suicide Squad was cineastic gold compared to this haplessly cobbled together piece of fanservice that bombed badly and foreseeable and consequentially. The theater I was wathing it in was roaring with laughter and you could hear the one or other “Are they serious?”

    “5.) Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”
    The only item on your list that is halfways worthy having a look at, and the best Star Trek with the best captainandmost quirky cast ever. Unfortunately everybody and their granny have watched this show at least a dozen times and now it’s deader than a dead mouse.

  4. My husband and I loved Deep Space Nine. We watched every episode and even traveled in order to view the finale when it was not going to be shown in our town. The characters were great, the actors top notch, costumes, story lines, themes. It was my favorite Star Trek other than the original series. We liked Voyager as well. We haven’t seen the newest Star Wars movie yet. As for current TV, we don’t watch much any more, other than streaming PBS or late night comedians.

  5. Suicide Squad is a bit too cringy for me as a rewatch, but I can get through it if I need to. The Rise of Skywalker is easier to watch than The Last Jedi, but that’s not saying much for me. Can’t speak to the other movies and/or shows on your list. Although I will say that I have every intention of watching DS9 when I have the time.

  6. Excellent writeup, Renard! I haven’t watched any shows or movies in some time. Referencing LadyMew’s comment, I was a fan of NCIS and hate to see any of their shows cancelled. With that said, it seems it would be difficult to film NCIS New Orleans due to the virus.

    1. 🙂 Thank you, Eugenia.

      I am also a fan of the “NCIS” shows.

      Filming a new season of “NCIS: New Orleans” would be very challenging with COVID-19 around.

      Do enjoy the rest of your day!

  7. Of your line up, l have seen two, Suicide Squad was an excellent watch caught that last year and literally only the other day did l watch Seventh son which was better than l thought it was going to be, considering the low rating it had from IMDb. Not the sort of film you’d expect Madam Moore to be in, but the right type of film for Mister Bridges who l think is an absolute master for his roles – did you ever seehim in RIPD, and it was a surprise to see Kitt in there from Game of Thrones and the wonderful Djimon Hounsou who many may remember his earlier fame with Amistad, Deep Rising and of course Gladiator.
