Transporter: The Series (Season 1)

Andrea Osvárt @ Transporter: The Series

There aren’t much reasons to watch this series, but the girls are one of them. Not just Andrea Osvárt, that I post here, but lot of other girls appear around.

Regarding this series: sequels are a problem. If movie sequels are a problem (you know Shrek 3 will never be as good as the first Shrek movie), sequels that change the media (from TV series to films, or vice-versa) make things harder. You know, the Mission Impossible films will never be as good as the series, the same happened with the A-Team movie. The other way around doesn’t work as well, and this series is one example of it.

Jason Statham can not be imitated. This transporter seems to be smiling all the time. The main story (or each episode series) are not good. There are, even, repeated scenes from episode to episode. Then, are they trying to imitate Transporter, or Knight Rider? Yeah, transporter has a truck workshop. And the last episode, is mostly Max Payne action.

Ah, regarding action, not real. The guy wins every fight with the minor effort. He doesn’t even sweat.

But then, if you know all this and still like some fight choreography, and some girls, and boobies, and boobs and girls, the series isn’t that bad.

Nikita (Season 2)

Nikita - Crossbow episode

If you didn’t watch this complete season, please stop reading here. Yes, there will be spoilers, right in the next sentence. I confess I wasn’t expecting this end. Given the route of the season, yes, Percy would die, and division would come to an end. But I was expecting this series to end, just like House. I thought that was it, and not much more could be written. And, in fact, if they would continue the route of the first season, or even the second, the series would need to come to an end, fast.

In the first season we had Nikita spoiling up missions from division. It was a season where watching random episodes was possible. Of course some details of relationship between characters would be lost. But the stories were kind of contained in one episode. That route would tire the viewers. It would be the same kind of episode over and over again. That was the idea for series like Knight Rider, or McGuyver. It was also the idea of House, but for that to keep for eight years they changed the main focus from the ill patients to the craziness of House.

In Nikita that changed too. The second season is more like a soap, in the sense that you need to watch the episodes as a sequence to have full understanding of what is going on. People changed sides, and a small team grew together to put Percy down. And if Percy was division, we were expecting the series to finish that way.

But the writer seems to be intelligent, and was able to do a new change in the course, maintaining division, and, hopefully as the good guys.

Count on me to watch the next season. At least if we can keep Lyndsy Fonseca in the cast.

Knight Rider (2008) – Knight of the Hunter

Knight Rider - Knight of the Hunter

Knight Rider - Knight of the Hunter

One more episode from Knight Rider 2008 series. I must say that I am not happy with the cast. Namely, Deanna Russo is not properly attractive (to me). She has blue eyes, she has a nice body, but I do not like her (sorry). Normally, episodes are interesting because we see Smith Cho and she it totally cute. In this episode you can see her in gymnastic outfit, balancing her butt. Sexy. Also, in this episode you can have a look into Kristen Bush. And I think she it hotter than Deanna Russo. But, as we usually say in Portugal, tastes aren’t a discussion subject.

About the story, nothing really new. But watchable for some good time.

More, what’s that Knight Research laptop with a Windows logo? That explains why Kitt needs to reboot so often.
