Teenage Bounty Hunters

Southern Christians are categorically not my jam but this show gets past that with a healthy dose of irreverent comedy. This show is about two southern teen seniors at a Christian private school who find themselves stumbling into the world of bounty hunting. I thought that it would be more of a fantasy version of bounty hunting but it is actually funnier that it involves actual real world bounty hunting (mostly bail jumpers). The show stars Maddie Phillips and Anjelica Bette Fellini as twins who have a bit of a spoiled yet country southern upbringing. They are absolutely hilarious together and their chemistry is definitely off the charts. They work with Kadeem Hardison, a seasoned and yet less refined bounty hunter who becomes their mentor. I am interested to see where the show goes as it follows two sheltered teens as they navigate high school and how to track criminals. It also seems to have a series or season arc that may be interesting. I recommend this show.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretacious

I am a big fan of the Jurassic Park franchise and have never regretted watching any of the content connected to it. When Jurassic World came out, I was very interested in the new-ish direction and I was not disappointed. The update really added a lot while still remaining true to the history of the franchise. When I heard about this new cartoon, I was intrigued since the timeline of the movies has moved on. The concept of the show is that it is a summer camp ran offsite from the Jurassic World theme park. The camp is mostly for VIPs connected to the park, famous people, and one contest winner. It takes place prior to and during the events of Jurassic World. So I am watching episodes and waiting for the other shoe to drop. The cast is full of pretty well-rounded characters with some cameos from characters from the franchise. I am so happy that this show exists because the technology and look of Jurassic World was too neat not to revisit. I recommend this show.


This show has been on my list for a while because I heard good things and I am glad that I finally tackled it. The show takes place in a world where bombs went off everywhere in the world which eliminated half of the adults and turned the rest into mindless, murderous zombies. The teens have formed a new post-apocalyptic society based on the same cliques from high school (Jocks, Cheermazons, STEM kids). The show follows a formerly clique-less teen who is searching for his girlfriend in the chaos of the apocalypse. Along the way, he joins up with misfits as the show explores pre-apocalypse and post-apocalypse. The show had a lot of quirky, 4th wall-breaking humor and I love the world-building so far. I also like the main guy played by Colin Ford who has so much charisma. I recommend this show.
