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!

Under the Dome (Season 1)

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)

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)

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

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.

Girls (Season 4)

Allison Williams as Marnie Michaels

I confess I am not sure why I continue watching this show. Not really because of the girls, because the ones that do top-less or complete nudes are not really that cute. Not really because of the main story, as it is not that interesting. Probably because of the complete madness of actions of the characters. Probably. Not sure if I’ll continue through season 5, but probably. Ah, also, the episodes are quite small, from 25 to 30 minutes, and that is cool.

Modern Family (Season 6)

Sofia Vergara @ Modern Family

Sofia Vergara @ Modern Family

Yeah, right. What other could I post here from the last Modern Family season? It is not every day we get Sofia Vergara in the pool. Other than that, the series continues with some fun episodes and some other more boring. Nothing really new. The “big story” (spoilers ahead) is quite small and slow. Alex gets to college (or out of college? well… to Caltech. I just hope she meets The Big Bang Theory next season). Haley likes Andy. And not much more.

Castle (Season 7)

Stana Katic as Kate Beckett

So, was watching the 23th episode when discovered there was no 24th. Shame! Was really expecting one more. Well, spoilers ahead.

For once, the season does not end with Beckett or Castle dead or disappeared. Only a small doubt on Kate future. On the season 6 finale, the explanation was not good. I think more could be done. But that was OK.

Other than that, I just expected Molly C. Quinn (Alexis) to be more active in the series. She is so cute and beautiful…

The Big Bang Theory (Season 8)

In case you had some doubts, you can see here a good reason for me to continue watching this series. I confess it is still fun, but the kind of jokes are getting boring. Thankful, now Raj has a hot redhead girlfriend with a creepy sense of humor. Just love her. And no, if she continues in the next series I will post her here. For this time, you get enough with Penny.
