Why People Should Cut 'Friends' Some Slack
If you take one look at Buzzfeed, you will see at least three articles written in the past six months with something along the lines of “21 times Friends was super problematic” or “Why Ross Gellar is the worst”. Sure, this show does have its moments, but is the constant badgering it is receiving warranted? I don’t think so.
Unpopular Buffy Opinions
With a show of this caliber and the size of the fandom, there are bound to be a few controversial takes here and there. Although I absolutely adore this series, I also have some of these and before I say anything else, they are just my personal opinions and in no way am I asking for people to take them for a fact.

Sour / Emails I Can't Send: Thematic Comparison
No, this is not what it looks like. Despite the drama caused by the whole Joshua-Olivia-Sabrina ‘love triangle’, we are not here to talk about that today. We’re here to discuss two brilliant albums and how they each portray an end of a relationship, looking into instrumental and lyrical choices.

Although they can’t substitute physically being somewhere else, at least I can travel in my mind, right?
How to Write a Good Horror Film Sequel: Discussing Mike Flanagan's 'Doctor Sleep'
When I went into the cinema to see this film, I didn't know what to expect. The Shining is one of my favourite horror flicks of all time, despite Stephen King's distaste for it, and combined with my set opinion that most horror sequels shouldn't even bother trying, I guess I didn't have high hopes. However, it's safe to say that my expectations were knocked off their pedestal as Doctor Sleep proved to be a new-found example on how to write a good horror sequel. Now, let's look into a few of my thoughts as to why that's the case.
Sparkly, Dreamy, Cosy: Ranking Songs from Taylor Swift's 'Lover'
If someone looked at my Spotify playlist, they’d see a rainbow of selections, from Green Day to Evanescence to musical soundtracks. Country-turned-pop princess Taylor Swift also turns up somewhere in between, so it was only natural I would check out her newest album.
