The Big Bang Theory – Season 4
The cool things about The Big Bang Theory are maintained: we have Kaley Cuoco (Penny) and Geek Jokes. And things get better. Now, we have Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) and Aarti Mann (Priya). Ok, Mayim Bialik can also be cute, but not as Amy Fowler.
News on this season? A few. Leonard breaks with Penny, and gets along with Priya. Howard continues with Bernadette, and Sheldon keeps the intellectual relationship with Amy. And the poor Raj keeps alone… or mostly.
Keeps being funny to watch. Preparing for season 5 soon or later.
No news on this Season, and I do not think there will be any in the future. The jokes are mostly the same, over and over again. From time to time a new one appears, but they are rare. But then, the English policeman talking in strange “French” has always some interesting results, like saying Herr Flick is dressed up like a “Roman Catholic Farter”.
In other news, do you know what is that metallic object in the picture, in the bottom right? Yeah, a Pisseur. Very cool and handy. To piss, of course.
The Big Bang Theory – S03
Well, to change a little, this time I do not share a picture of Penny, but of this pervert scientist. Let me know where to find one like this.
Regarding this series, the main idea is Penny and Leonard being committed in some kind of relationship. Of course that ends mostly at the end of the season, just in a way the next season can grow in interest somehow. Other than that, there are mainly two episodes I really liked. The first one if the one presented in the picture above. It was fun. The second one explaining how Sheldon and Leonard met and agreed to those apartment rules.
Also, in this series we know that Sheldon likes Ubuntu. So, not so smart as we think he is…
The Wolverine (2013)
First the relevant question: where does he buy those clothes that survive such explosions? I might be interested.
The movie is OK. Nothing brilliant. But enjoyable for the kind of movie you expect from a Marvel hero. There are some flaws, even in the extended version, that make me sad. Also, there are some inexplicable details that I would like to see more clearly. For instance, [spoilers alert!] what would that Viper gain helping the old and dying human? That is not explained anywhere.
The best thing in this movie, and for the first time in this blog, is not a girl. But that bed where the old guy is dying. That seems great. I one to test one of those.
Machete Kills (2013)
What the fu*k? No, really! I enjoyed the first movie, but this one is a piece of sh*t. I can find a couple of good jokes, like the gun that “turns the sh*t inside out” or even the penis gun shown above. Then, well, you have Lady GaGa, and seeing a guy turning into Lady GaGa can make you smile. Other than that, stupidity after stupidity. The story is dumb, characters are dumb, even the gore is dumb. And no, I will not watch the next one, that promises yet more dumbness. Even Jessica Alba disappears right in the beginning of the movie. Rated 3/10 @ imdb.
Broken Sword 5
I just finished the first part of Broken Sword 5. In case you do not know, this game was funded using the Kickstarter website. I can not recall how much I donated to the project, but it is great to see that the game ended in the market.
The game continues in the same line as previous episodes. We have Niko, a girl, and George, the boy, trying to solve mysteries. In this first part, mostly the assassination of that guy, in the floor.
The story is not anything revolutionary. The puzzles are mostly accessible (at least for me). There is a hint system that I used only twice. I think the first time I would not need to use it if I was more fluent in English. For the second time, yeah, I needed a little the hint.
For now, expecting the second part. My main question now is: can I uninstall the first part, or do I need it to play the second? If anybody knows the answer, I am welcome.
Girls (season 2)
Girls, sex, drugs, love, hate, money, job, sex, more girls, more sex, and should be able to explain what the series and this season is about. The usual, the story of four girl friends (that from time to time forget the friendship) that do sex, have boy friends, change boy friends, do casual sex, change boy friends, try drugs, change boy friends, do some more sex, lose the job, get a job, lose the job again.
I can’t say I love this series, but it is interesting to watch. Not just because there is not that much censure, but because it reminds me of some life problems.
Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Yep, a screenshot of a bridge for the Sherlock Holmes movie. Why? I just love this industrial revolution scenario. Oh, and in school I drawn a lot of bridges under construction. Not sure why my teacher did not like it.
Anyway, that is a relevant part of the movie, but not (usually) the reason why you watch a movie. First, you have Iron Man… erm.. Sherlock Holmes that is fun, unlike the usual boring ones. This time Watson is the very boring guy. The story is acceptable. No big mysteries. Just the deductions are nice. Not excessive clever, just observation, mostly.
But there is a scene where I almost choke without air, laughing out loud and almost rolling on the floor Yeah, if you watched it, you guessed, the fight between Sherlock and that French dude, each one asking for some seconds, and the French dude flying with electric shocks. LOL!
The scientific dildo
The usual review to the pilot/first episode from a new series. Yeah, I have too many series to watch, more the old ones I would like to review. Whatever. The worst that can happen is to die before having the time to watch them all.
But back to Masters of Sex, the history of Doc. Masters, a fertility expert that decides to learn the details of conception right when the parents do sex, in an epoch were sexology wasn’t anything known. The history goes with the preparation of the project, and getting volunteers to… have sex, while they are watched. In parallel, you will get love/hate/sex stories between the main characters.
My main complain at the moment is the length of the episodes. More than an hour is too much for a series episode. That’s one of the reasons I like some other like Modern Family or The Big Bang Theory.
That’s right! I just bought an used Samsung Note 10.1″ tablet and I am loving it. Forget the idea that using your finger is the best approach to usability. Yours hands were not designed to write with your finger. In school you learnt how to use a pen and you used it for long periods of time in school and probably you- still use it from time to time in your work. Then, why not to use it to write in your tablet? Yeah! I know that your calligraphy is not the best, and you are ashamed of it. But, in the other hand, why not taking the chance to make it better. Probably if you tablet software can interpret it then other people might too.
Enough of trying to convince you. I still think that a tablet with a proper pen to let you write like you learnt in school is great. Of course it still fails when I try my artistic letters, but frankly it is very good. I congratulate Samsung by keeping their note line in the market, this is so great I can’t stop writing.
Help! Somebody take this tablet far from me, or I will not be able to stop and sleep. I’ll continue writing all night text and more text, most of it useless…
