Happy Friday Novas! Thank you for reading this week’s Hulu Series Review! I have recently binge watched a series called T@gged on Hulu with my friend Emily and decided it’s a greta show to review,,, with her! This review will be a bit different as I will go over the show and also what Emily and I’s theories were each episode! We kept pausing the action to talk to each other about what’s happening and how everything could be linked, so I pulled out my notepad and jotted down our theories.
Plot: Tagged is an 8 episode mini-series that follows 3 teen girls; Rowan, Hailee and Elysia. The 3 girls are caught up in a plot of violence and mystery by a character with the username M0nk3ym4nn. The girls have to follow the clues to find our who this mystery person is and how far they are willing to go in this week of fear. What is the countdown timer for? Who is M0nk3ym4nn? How are all 3 girls from different backgrounds connected? That’s what you’re trying to figure out!
Our Process: During episode number 2, Emily and I paused the show and decided to give “Codenames” to the main characters in order to keep our connections together. **Please be advised, the names may be a little aggressive so I’ve rate this a PG13 review, also, mild spoilers with the codenames**. Rowan we gave the codename Ho, Hailee was Druggy and Elysia was Cutter. Obviously, these codenames referred to situations that were prevalent in the show. Whenever one of us had a suspicion we would talk it out and make a list of the suspects. By the end of episode 6, we had a solid feeling for who this monkeymann was.
There were a few times that Emily and I had to pause and grab our 21 year old friend to ask about certain trends or short messages that were being sent. Since the show focuses on modern youths and the use of scoial media to intimidate the characters, there were a few things that Emily and I were confused about. I personally think that’s a great touch, adding in emoji’s and shortcodes in the series.
Check out the trailer for the series below.
This is the part of the review where I will list my top reasons to “Play” or “Skip” this series on Hulu.
- A dramatic mini series with plenty of teen drama (my guilty pleasure)
- Short 22 minute episodes
- A mystery to follow
- Get annoyed with teens making stupid decisions
- Not into Pretty Little Liars (because you will not like this series)
Thank you for tunin in to this week’s series! Have you been binge watching anything new? Have you seen or heard of T@gged? Let’s talk series!
