Kate Beckett and Richard Casltle
One more season is over. It seems that every season that comes passes faster, although they have the same number of episodes. Well, this season is different from the previous ones because this time we have Kate and Castle together, in a relationship. It is also different because… and spoilers follow… this season doesn’t end with Kate almost dead. Well, kind of.
The crimes are not very different from previous seasons. We just had the luck to know Castle father, and a few more steps on the Kate’s mother assassination.
Now, we are waiting for the next season, wondering what kind of direction it will take. Whatever comes, here I am to watch.
Katharine McPhee @ Smash
This is not the typical series that I watch. Not that much sex, no action, not really humor, not horror. Two girls fighting for the Marlin role in a Broadway musical. OK, there are girls, and that usually is enough for me. But I also like the the story: how things are done for a musical, with nice songs (some of them original) and a good story. Probably most would argue this is a typical series for woman, but you know what, I am enjoying it pretty much. But then, in the old days I liked to watch the Love Boat, and it wasn’t only because of the girls in bikini.
The second season of Allo Allo continues in the sequence of the first series, with the Resistance fighting the Germans, the Germans fighting themselves, and the English airmen trying to escape. This all in a big mix of fun deaths, funerals, duels, et al.
A fun series to watch, but doesn’t bring any real novelty regarding the first season. Probably I should say, more of the same. But if the same was good, good…
Modern Family – Mother’s Day
Modern Family second season is a little better than the first season, but not much different. What I miss in this series is continuity. Not requesting a complex story that continues every episode, like Smash, or Game of Thrones, but a global story that ties episodes together (like Castle, Nikita or the good old House). In this season there are some episodes with a sequence (regarding Manny’s dog), some episodes that refer to previous ones (like Valentines day, or the last from the season, that visits a set of previous episodes).
But, the thing I like most is Glória (Sofia Vergara) and the sound similarities: Saxophone vs Sexy Phone, Baby Cheeses vs Baby Jesus. Just great.
Weird, very weird. First, I should note that although I hear a lot about Hannibal Lecter, I never read or saw any story on him, and therefore, I was kind of lost. After a quick visit to wikipedia things got clearer. This probably shows that the first episode is not that good as it might be, as people new to the Lecter story might end watching the episode, and be kind of lost.
Nevertheless, I am interested to see next episodes, even with the “viewer discretion advised” message.
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.
Andrea Osvárt @ Transporter: The Series
Julie Bowen @ Modern Family
Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen are two good MILF reasons to watch this series. I confess I started watching it because a friend said it is very good. In fact, I can’t say it is that good (at least for first season). Somehow, I feel some actors to act a little strange. Also, the mockumentary format is not a thing I appreciate.
Nevertheless, there are funny episodes, and good jokes. I think the character I like most is Manny Delgado. Not only because he has my name (swapped), but also because he has the same problem as I have with girls. How I understand you, Manny…
Hannibal @ The A-Team
I do not remember well why I did not watch this series in the TV… I remember watching some random, only. So, I decided to re-watch it (the same I am doing with Mission Impossible, but there are others I will not watch again, because I watched them all, like McGuyver or the Knight Rider).
I think most people know this series, so, I will not talk much about it. Just to let you know I love when a plan comes together, and that you should be cautions when Hannibal is on the jazz…
‘Allo ‘Allo – Season 1
Take notice, as I shall say this only once: this series is great. It is easy to notice that, as I do not watch that many series daily, and I finished this season quite fast (I know there are only eight episodes, or so). The only part that hurts it listening to Edith singing… oh God… and I do not have cheese to put in my ears. Oh, and another complain: The Madonna by Van Klomp doesn’t have such big boobies…
Zosia Mamet @ Girls
So, I finally completed the process of watching Girls, the first season. And I will probably watch the second season as well. It is not an interesting series, to say the truth. Some small interesting scenes, but that is all. Nevertheless, there are some girls. The subject of the series: girls, boyfriends, sex, drug, alcohol, more sex, gays, lesbians, more drug, more sex, fights between girls, and it continues like that.
