The Big Bang Theory (Season 9)

The Big Bang Theory continues to be fun, even with all the marriages. And I continue envying Raj… two cute girlfriends…

I do not have much more to say this time. Waiting for Season 10!

Slitherlink

Slitherlink

Usually I do not play much on my Android phone. But when waiting for someone or something, to have a good puzzle is worth it.

Slitherlink, as you can look up in the Internet, is not an idea of this app author. It is a known puzzle, and if you look up in Google Play, you will notice a few implementations.

I can’t say that this one is the best, as I did not test any other. But it installed correctly, runs smoothly, and seems to have some good diversity of modes and difficulty levels. Therefore, I am quite happy with it, happy enough to consider buying the ad-free version, with extra levels. Truth be said, the free version includes a good mount of levels, and ads are not intrusive. So, kudos for that.

About the game, it is up to you to read about it and test it. It can be seen as some sort of minesweeper, with some reasoning mechanisms also used in sudoku.

The Intern (2015)

Anne Hathaway @ The Intern

Anne Hathaway @ The Intern

Not much to say about the movie. A romantic comedy, and no, the romance was not between Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. It is a fund movie to watch. a few slow scenes, but mostly enjoyable to watch.

Also was interesting to see Adam DeVine out of Modern Family, and Andrew Rannells out of Girls. And those who know me, know that the fact of having Anne Hathaway around made me stick. Yes, she is very cute.

Under the Dome (Season 1)

Rachelle Lefevre as Julia Shumway

Rachelle Lefevre as Julia Shumway

I always had a thing for red heads. But Rachelle Lefevre is gorgeous. Nice hair, gentle eyes, beautiful face lines. But no, that is not the reason I am watching this show. And I confess I watched it faster than I thought.

So, why am I watching it? It is different from others. It is not the same old super-hero story like Flash. It is not like Game of Thrones with each episode with so few story. But it is a drama. But with some scifi. Not bad, I shall say. It has some incoherent parts. Mainly one that annoys me: everything outside is exploded and black, but two days after, everything is like in the first day. But, hey, that is not the story. Whatever. It is not relevant.

To tell the truth, I am not sure if I switch to another show for some time, if I continue this in the next season, if I get back to Hannibal or if I just wait for Castle and The Big Bang Theory come back. Who knows?

Hannibal (Season 2)

Hannibal

Hannibal

And they talk about Game of Thrones, and all dead… oops, sorry. Spoilers ahead, in the next paragraph. So, if you never saw Hannibal, think on it. I know it is sometimes a problem for digestion. But it is worth it.

My main complain is that sometimes it gets hard to follow. Sometimes explanations are given (like Freddie Lounds death), but some other are missing, like Abigail’s death. Nevertheless, everybody dies at the end? I imagine not, of course, as season 3 is out there. But yeah, this series is quite good.

Under the Dome (S01E01)

Dome just fall

Dome just fall

I know I should not watch more series. But I was tempted. Just by the name. Yeah. Under the Dome. A lot it can mean. Well, watched the pilot episode just for the kicks, and try to understand how cool it could get. At first it was mostly confused, and it seems it continues that way, for now. But the effects, the gore (check above) and Rachelle Lefevre was enough, for now, to make me wanting to watch the second one.

So, for now, will probably watch the second episode as well. Then, who knows if I’ll watch any more of them.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Chloe Bennet as Skye

Chloe Bennet as Skye

This is that kind of series that go in a crescendo. At the beginning it was kind of slow, with an episode-based story, mostly on S.H.I.E.L.D. (God, that is tiresome to write) agents working. Then a bigger story is formed, curiously, joining some of the different stories that were told before. At the end, a big crescendo and a great season finale.

The, you have action, your have scifi (a lot), you have girls for every taste, and a lot of humor. And if that is not enough, you have Skye, a sexy… erm… E.T.

How it’s made: Dream Cars (Season 1)

Bentley Continental GT Speed

Bentley Continental GT Speed

It is strange, but yeah, recently I’ve been watching this series. Good part, small episodes, about cars, with lots of robots that I like. Bad part, a lot of repetition at some point, given most cars are made in the same way. No surprise there. Anyway, it is a good series to understand the price of some of these cars, and also to understand how automatic or manual are they built. Trying not to make any spoilers, if a documentary can have spoilers, and if I recall correctly, from this first season, Porsche 911 is, undoubtful, the one which production is more automated.

Penguins of Madagascar (2014)

How Documentaries Are Done

Much better than the latest Madagascar movie. Of course it is full of non-sense. But it doesn’t try to be a Drama or a Romance. It is just non-sense with full of good laughs. The penguins are great. Great. And the jokes appear one after the other, at a velocity it is very difficult to grasp all of them.

One of the best quotes: “Nicholas! Cage them!” Lovely. 8 in 10 @ IMDB.

Ocean’s Twelve (2004)

Catherine Zeta-Jones in Ocean's Twelve

Catherine Zeta-Jones in Ocean’s Twelve

The worst one of the trilogy. If there is a reason to watch it until the end, the reason is the beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones. Other than that, the story is not interesting, the way it is presented is not the best, and some issues are not very clear. The third followed the approach of the first, making it a success. So, if I had to suggest anyone to watch Ocean’s trilogy, I would, doubtful, suggest to skip this one. Yeah, just 4 in 10 at IMDB.
