Sim, Chef! (Season 1)

Sim, Chef!

Sim, Chef!

Yep, the first Portuguese series that I comment here, at the end of a season. This is a comedy, a little unrealistic on some points, but lots of fun. Also, it has some nice girls, and show nice food. And I always liked cooking shows, so, why not join them? The only sad thing is that Benedita Pereira’s character reminds me of someone… that does not know of my existence, unless in real need of computer services. Sad!

Under the Dome (Season 3)

Right, it ended. Badly. Unfortunately, somebody wrote the season finale before the series got cancelled. Now, I feel like Sheldon Cooper, needing completion. No, this is not anything you do to your followers. Nop. Wrong.

Well, regarding Under the Dome, the first season is the best. The second goes down. The third goes up again a little. The end is a little fun, but also a cliffhanger. And I would love to see where they would go from there.

And, yeah, Julia Schumway is cute, cute, cute.

Modern Family (Season 8)

Modern Family continues, and like The Big Bang Theory, the story is mostly the same from the beginning. Two gays with relationship problems, and self-doubt, a lazy mom and the three kids, and the old guy with the cute woman. From time to time an episode is better than the others, making a laugh, but most of the time it just guarantees a 20 minutes of OK time. Example of this warm evolution is the season finale, that was just like any other episode from the series. I know this series is mostly based on each individual episode, than in a continuous story, but nevertheless, it would be quite easy to make some suspense on the “umbrella story”.

The Big Bang Theory (Season 10)

Right. Tenth Season. And in 10 years Sheldon Cooper had more girls than me. Oh well.

Back to the series. Things are mostly the same from last seasons. Some new details to shake a little the story (Raj parents not paying for his house, baby for Horward and Bernardette, ..) but the main history keeps the same. While nothing vibrantly new, the series keeps to make me laugh. And of course, nice girls.

Sim, Chef! (S01E01)

Yep, this is the second time I blog about a Portuguese series. It started right in the same week as “Ministério do Tempo”, but it is a comedy. It follows the 20 minutes of other well known series like Allo Allo! or The Big Bang Theory, and with non-sense ranging from the minimum to crazy. What I like in it? Well, the idea (stories in the Kitchen of a well known restaurant), the fun, and of course, Benedita Pereira. So, it is another series I will keep my eye on. Stay tuned.

Ministério do Tempo (S01E01)

Ministério do Tempo

Probably this is the first time I post about a Portuguese series. As far as I could find, it is not original from Portugal but Spain, but adapted (or localized) to Portugal. It is sufficiently strange, and includes enough reference to history, to make it interesting. I liked the first episode and will give it a chance. Keep tuned.

Under The Dome (Season 2)

The second season continues with more strange events, more fantasy, more deaths and revivals. When something starts to make sense, it quickly stop, and new strange things happen. I am curious how the third season will deal with the Series cancellation, and if the end will make sense.

Meanwhile, Rachelle Lefevre is a good reason to watch the next season, too.

How Its Made Dream Cars – Season 3

Long time since my last post. Not having much time for anything useful, other than job. In any case, I managed to watch the third season of this show. It is something we can watch quickly, as the episodes are small, and we do not need to pay too much attention. It is just something I like to see how things get automated, and when they don’t, how they are organized in order to allow better results. And that connected with nice cars makes me like this show. So, will continue to see up to the end of the series.

Castle (Season 8)

And the Castle series just ended. I will miss it. Quite fun, with interesting stories. Some of them with some holes, but most of them were good. The main characters were fun, and well constructed. And, of course, I will miss those Alexis eyes.

Regarding this season, I must say the episodes were quite good, and the last episodes shown that good stories could still be made, keeping the “umbrella story” in a halt. The last episode was a great season finale. But no, not a good Series finale. They say that they did not have much time. But it was bad. Quite bad. Of course we can imagine a course, but that is not our job, but the directors job. Finally, even the “umbrella story” got missing details. OK, the “LokSat” was found, but his story was not told. What were his motives? All that conspiracy should have a good reason. Shame…

Modern Family (Season 7)

Modern Family (season 7)

Although I finished this season some weeks ago, I did not notice there were no more episodes. The fact of every episode having a different story, with minimal umbrella story (the one that glues episodes together), and the lack of a season finale are the reasons for missing it.

In any case, Modern Family continues as good as it was. I still think that Alex Dumphy deserves an episode meeting Sheldon at Caltech (even being two different producers, why not?) and I think Manny, like above, is deserving a chance with a girl. Not necessarily a hot blonde, but I feel for him. Probably because I think I deserve this chance too…
