The Best Of: Comfort Films and TV Shows

I’m going to be 100% honest with you and say that the first few posts in this series will be re-uploads of previous posts. I’ve wanted to revive this series for the longest time but for some reason I 1: did films and shows separately and 2: haven’t uploaded one in over a year. So, I decided it would be best to mix up the old posts (with some added content) and bring the series back.

She’s The Man (2006)

I actually can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen this film. I’ve probably watched it at least once a year since it came out and I’m really in the mood to watch it again soon. I honestly don’t think I will ever get bored of She’s The Man and the fact that I quote it on a daily basis is a true testament to that statement. 

I don’t know if this film would be released now, is having Viola pose as a boy a bit politically incorrect? I don’t know personally, but it’s just a bit of fun. Anyway, this film was a huge part of my childhood and honestly, it is absolutely hilarious. If you’ve never seen this film you absolutely need to.

I did a re-watch review of it earlier this year, check it out here if you want: Re-Watch Review: She’s The Man

Synopsis: Viola Johnson (Amanda Bynes) is in a real jam. Complications threaten her scheme to pose as her twin brother, Sebastian, and take his place at a new boarding school. She falls in love with her handsome roommate, Duke, who loves beautiful Olivia, who has fallen for Sebastian! As if that were not enough, Viola’s twin returns from London ahead of schedule but has no idea that his sister has already replaced him on campus.

Gilmore Girls (2000 – 2007)

I’ve only watched the entirety of this series once through, but the comfort I get from it is immense. There’s something about films, shows and books set in small towns that really get me. I love how everyone knows each other and that they have special seasonal events. 

With that being said my particularly favourite episodes are the ones set around autumn and Christmas. Cosy vibes are off the scale.

When I first talked about this as a comfort show, I said I wasn’t ready to commit to a re-watch. This is hilarious as I’m now almost done with season two.

Synopsis: The show follows their daily life as Lorelai advances in her career as a hotel manager and Rory deals with the pressures of high school. Lorelai, currently working at the Independence Inn in Stars Hollow, needs help from her parents to pay Rory’s tuition to Chilton, a prestigious high school.
