For favorite alien movie, I’m going to choose Starman. I don’t really think of him as an ‘alien’, but I guess he is since he comes from another planet! The movie has great actors (Jeff Bridges, Karen Allen) and is such a sweet movie! It also shows how typical humans are when it comes to treating others who we don’t know poorly. I love the relationship though between Jenny and Starman! I won’t give any details away, but I love the scene with the deer!
Today’s challenge is favorite scream queen. To be honest, I don’t really have one. However, I do like a few actresses that are considered scream queens (I just haven’t seen the movies that they’re considered scream queens for, if that makes sense). Here are some actresses that I like that have been called scream queens.
1.) Kate Beckinsale – I did see Kate Beckinsale in Van Helsing, but didn’t see her in Underworld. I’ve also seen her in non-horror/horror based movies like Serendipity and really like her!
2.) Katie Cassidy – I’ve seen Katie Cassidy as Ruby in Supernatural, Laurel Lance in Arrow (along with Laurel Lance in The Flash in a couple of episodes and Legends of Tomorrow in an episode) and really liked her. I especially loved her as Ruby in Supernatural! She was actually pretty freakin’ awesome!

I will be rec’ding and wreck’ding TV shows!
1.) Legends of Tomorrow: I was late to the party, but I think I’m caught up now. This is a great show and the White Canary kicks ass! The only thing is that if you’ve never seen The Flash or Arrow, you might be a little confused.
2.)Man with a Plan: While I doubt it will last very long because networks never seem to give Matt Leblanc shows the chances they deserve (other than Friends, of course!), I thought Man with a Plan was really good. Matt Leblanc is hilarious and I liked Liza Snyder too. The show is just really funny so far!
3.) Frequency: Peyton List and Riley Smith are great in Frequency. I also love the idea of father and daughter being able to communicate through the radio, whilst years apart from each other. In addition to the concept being cool, I like the way they show the cause and effect of changing time. The only issue I have with the show is that it can be a bit repetitive at times.
Sadly I feel like a lot of my favorite shows have gone down hill. Here’s a few:
1.) The Flash: I was already getting irritated with Barry changing things so many freakin’ times in the past, but once I found out there was yet another ‘speedster’, I couldn’t take it any longer! I think the writers realized that they made a huge mistake, but I don’t think they were able to fix it. It’s too bad too, this show could have been amazing! I’ve officially given up on it.
2.) Supergirl: I could go on and on complaining about this show. Supergirl was never strong or believable as a superhero to begin with, but now she has like twenty different people helping her! I like her character as an every day human being, but as a superhero, she’s very disappointing. I feel like part of the show’s purpose is to show that women are just as strong as men, but it fails miserably in trying to demonstrate this. Again, this is a show that I’ve stopped watching.
3.) Arrow: While I haven’t stopped watching Arrow quite yet, I’m getting dangerously close. After Oliver’s amazing team all went their separate ways (the characters are still in the show, but have tiny parts), I’m just not feeling it. Oliver has assembled a new team but none of the members really stick out and the one who does sticks out in a bad way – she’s utterly annoying. The only good thing is that Stephen Amell remains amazing and so does Emily Bett Rickards. David Ramsey and Paul Blackthorne are also still great, but their parts are so small that you can hardly say they’re in the show at all. I’m hoping that changes soon, but I don’t have much hope for the show.
For favorite funny – scary TV show, I’m picking a show that’s not really scary at all, but just plain hilarious. It’s a spoof on scary stuff though, so I think it counts! And the winner is…The Munsters!
I’m not 100% sure this counts, but I’m going to pick the legend of Hellhounds! As many of you know, I watch and love the show Supernatural and think the concept of Hellhounds (while scary) is pretty cool!
I had a favorite monster in mind, but then I realized it’s more of the scariest monster which is a prompt for later on in the challenge. Therefore, since I’m not quite sure what my favorite monster is, I’m going to go with a monster that I thought looked really cool! Djinns from Supernatural!
My favorite paranormal TV show is without a doubt, Supernatural. However, I’ve already mentioned the show a few times in this challenge and might one more time, so I’m going to choose Stephen King’s The Dead Zone!
