It’s six in the morning here in the Philippines and I am wide awake since 4AM. My circadian rhythm is already screwed up to begin with, and this weather isn’t helping. I woke up because our pets were whining, they were scared of the lightning and thunder I suppose? Anyway, they woke my parents up, then my parents woke me up with their offer of coffee. Anyway, it wasn’t so bad. I enjoyed the coffee.

While drinking my coffee, I checked my Twitter feed and someone replied regarding my question on where I can watch tVN’s new Korean TV series: Criminal Minds. It’s a Korean version of the American show of the same title. So, I ended watching the first episode and I am sold. It’s pretty good. I heard the ratings are good too in South Korea. Most of the Korean shows that are known internationally are romance, drama, and the historical ones. I think this show gives a different flavor to the Korean audience that’s why the ratings are pretty solid. I just hope that it will continue.

I don’t know much about the actors in this show. I know that Lee Joon Gi did a lot of historical dramas, I have watched Moon Chae Won in The Good Doctor, and that’s it. I don’t know the other actors at all, but they were all good. I’ll definitely continue watching this show.

You can watch the Criminal Minds Korean trailer here.

I hope you all have a good day ahead!

Pitch

1 Comment

How are you guys? It’s been a while. I hope everyone had a blast during the holidays. The past few months have been hectic for me, that’s why I wasn’t able to make a top reads list for 2016. I was able to finish my reading challenge though. Yay!

I probably won’t be blogging today (or any other day) if it wasn’t for this show I just finished watching. It’s a 10-episode season from Fox entitled Pitch. I just saw a post from one of my favorite authors saying how she loved the show and I decided to check it out. I wasn’t expecting it to be a sports series but what’s even more surprising is how I got hooked despite not knowing anything about baseball.

The premise is about a young black woman who is about to be a starting pitcher for one of the major baseball league team– the San Diego Padres. It sure is an interesting tale of the pressures and challenges of being a woman in MBL. The good thing about Pitch is that it isn’t just about Ginny’s success, it also shows the stories of the people around her—her colleagues, her friends, her manager, etc.
After binge watching the series, I immediately went to Google to check out the characters in the show. I am mostly impressed by the actor who played Ginny Baker– Kylie Bunbury. I haven’t seen any of her earlier shows, but I truly admire her performance on this TV series. Her acting is so on point you that you can’t help but fall in love with her and her character. I watched some of Bunbury’s interview and she mentioned how hard she trained to learn how to pitch. What a dedicated young woman. Ali Larter’s performance in Pitch is also something to be commended. Overall, Pitch has an amazing cast.
The season ended in a cliffhanger, *spoiler alert* with Ginny clutching her pitching arm at the mound. The future doesn’t look too bright for Baker, just like what the future looks like for the show. I was disappointed that I am not hearing any noises about a second season. I couldn’t understand why the ratings are low. The show is unique, brilliant and captivating… I just don’t get it. Maybe the world isn’t ready for Ginny Baker and what she represents… yet? Idk, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a second season of Pitch.
Thanks for dropping by!

Is Zack Addy a serial killer?

Dr. Zack Addy
Hey guys! I finally watched the last three episodes of Bones and I’m so pleased that Dr. Zack Addy has returned to the show. However, it appears that Zack is the serial killer that the FBI is looking for. The evidence are pretty damning and the fact that he kidnapped Dr. Brennan on the last episode made him look guilty. He looks very creepy on that scene too. Anyway, I’m still hoping that he’s not the killer. I’m looking forward for the show’s return for it’s final season next year. Bones is probably the longest TV series I binged watch, 10 seasons! I’ve watched it regularly after catching up on Season 11. Really great show.

Since most of the TV series I enjoy has been cancelled, I have been looking for other shows to watch. I found The Blacklist and I already finished watching all three seasons. It’s so good. I can’t wait to watch Season 4. I think the show will return on the 22nd. Another show that will come back this month is Lucifer, I saw the Season 2 trailer in YouTube and it looks like it’s going to be a fun season.

I am still watching Suits, I’m currently at season three. I super love Harvey and Mike, the best closer in NY and the genius fake lawyer. They are phenomenal and a little scary when they work together. I also watch Mr. Robot, I am currently on season two. Most of the time I do not understand what the character’s motives are and how pointless F society’s cause were, but I just find it entertaining. IDK, I guess being inside the head of a schizophrenic guy is interesting to me, lol. I wouldn’t be surprised if the whole show is just a part of Elliot’s delusions. Still, the show is pretty engaging.

I have a week long vacation coming up next week and I’m planning to watch The Flash and Stranger Things. I am also looking for books to read next week, so, If you have some recommendations, feel free to share them on the comment box. Thanks!

PS. Marvel’s Luke Cage is almost here! Check out the official trailer here.

Best TV Show Ever!

13 Comments

A couple of weeks ago I watched a youtube video about the top ten must watch tv series of 2015. I know it’s a bit out dated, but I have been busy reading fiction novels that I missed a lot of good shows last year. I just finished watching the first season of Lucifer, which is good btw, and Limitless (another amazing TV series but was not renewed for a second season). I do enjoy police procedural shows with sci-fi or supernatural element added into it. So, when I saw a trailer of Person Of Interest, I was intrigued. I finished all 5 seasons in less than 2 weeks! I loved it. I was a little sad that CBS did not renew POI because it’s probably one the best shows I’ve ever seen. The action is so good, the storyline is mind blowing and the characters are just amazing. 

My favorite characters are Finch (because he made The Machine, he’s brilliant) and Root (her character development is just so entertaining to watch–she was an assassin for hire in the first season, a psychiatrist, then a mental patient on the third season, and became a loyal servant of The Machine until her last breath). Another thing that made this TV series so special is the Root-Shaw (aka. Shoot) relationship. I’m straight, but I truly ship Root and Shaw. The chemistry on screen between Amy Acker and Sarah Shahi is so amazing. They are both lovely actors and I hope we can see them on screen together again. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a POI spin-off. If you haven’t seen Point of Interest yet, you  should start watching it now. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

Castle Finale

So, Castle finally ended the other night and it was a bittersweet ending. I did not expect to be emotional while watching Crossfire but I did shed some tears. I really am going to miss this show. I watched it twice already. The first time I was too emotional and didn’t nitpick all the scenes in the episode. So, I watched it again after work and I realized how the show ended abruptly. I  guess they weren’t really expecting the show to end this year and had to make last minute changes on the episode. Anyway, it was a good one. At least we know that they survived and have three cute kids. The Castle fandom is really amazing, I already found some Castle fanfics on Tumblr continuing the story from Crossfire. Thank you for all the awesome Castle Fanfic authors!

The season finale of Marvel’s Agent of SHIELD aired last night so, I am going to watch episodes 17-22 soon.

Speaking of Marvel shows. I have finished Marvel’s Jessica Jones and I liked it. The show is a little darker than most Marvel shows I’ve seen because it tackles issues like PTSD, addiction, abuse, rape, abortion, etc. Also, Jones is not your typical heroine, she’s really messed up. She knows it, she doesn’t pretend to be someone else, and she always mention that she isn’t a hero. It was great, and I’m looking forward to watch the second season. I couldn’t say the same thing about Marvel’s Daredevil. I watched until episode 10 of season one and then I couldn’t anymore. I just find his character annoying, he always acts rashly  doesn’t accept help from others, and it looked like he doesn’t really have an end game. The only characters I loved from this show are Foggy and Claire. Foggy is such a great guy, he’s very honest and kind. Claire is a super nurse, she is now the official nurse of the heroes of Hell’s Kitchen. She did patch up Luke Cage in Marvel’s Jessica Jones. I read in Wikipedia that these Marvel’s mini-series are leading up to a cross-over show entitled The Defenders. Which includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and the Iron Fist. I am looking forward to watch that.

I have watched a lot of shows this week and haven’t picked up a single book. This makes me feel bad, I have to read a new book soon. =/

My favorite shows got cancelled.

Yesterday, I found out that my favorite shows Castle and Agent Carter will be cancelled. I have seen this coming from Castle because after Beckett and Castle got married, the ratings went down and the story wasn’t as great as it used to. I didn’t know that there were tension going on between Stana and Nathan that resulted to Stana leaving the show. I also just found out yesterday that most of the  Castle fans preferred having the show cancelled than watching it without Beckett in it. I completely agree with that. Honestly, the show should have ended at season 7. While I was on vacation, I made my sister watch Castle and told her to stop at Season 7 because Season 8 was terrible. Anyway, Castle being cancelled is sad but at the same time a relief for all the fans.

What really upsets me is Agent Carter being cancelled. I guess the ratings of season two was really low that they had to cancel the show. I’m going to miss Peggy and Jarvis’ adventures. For Hayley Atwell fans, do not worry, she will have a new show in ABC entitled Conviction. BTW, I have seen the latest Captain America movie and I guess it’s the last time we’ll see Peggy. She was literally buried in the film, and a new love interest for the Captain was introduced. So, I guess this is really a goodbye to Agent Peggy Carter!

On the brighter side, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will be renewed. Yay!  Bones will also be renewed for its final season. I guess I just have to find me new shows to watch this year.

PS. I started watching Marvel’s Jessica Jones. It’ s good. 🙂

Will there be a Season 3 for Marvel’s Agent Carter?

It’s no secret that I love Marvel shows and movies. Specially Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Marvel’s Agent Carter. However, I’m dragging my feet in watching the last few episodes of SHIELD because I don’t think I can bear waiting for the season finale. So, my plan is to wait for all the episodes to be aired before I watch it. I did the same thing for Marvel’s Agent Carter. I finally got around watching it yesterday and I loved every single episode.

Mrs. Jarvis

In Season 2, the setting is in California where Sousa is the Chief SSR. It’s nice watching Peggy and Sousa together, of course there are some obstacles they had to overcome but they eventually got together. New characters were introduced too, like Mrs. Jarvis, Dr. Wilkes,etc. Dottie was caught in the beginning, became Peggy’s accomplice towards the middle and got away again in the end.

image

I seriously love this show. I love the story line, the characters, the costumes and the setting. I don’t mind if I only get to watch 8 or 10 episodes per season. I would be incredibly upset if this show will not be renewed. I know there is another show in the works right now: Marvel’s Most Wanted which is a spin-off of SHIELD where Hunter and Bobby will be the main characters. I will definitely watch that show too, but I hope it will not replace Agent Carter’s slot.

Have you guys watched the latest Captain America Movie? I haven’t yet, but I’ve seen many spoilers in Tumblr and there was a funeral scene (It was Peggy’s Funeral). I would be very annoyed if that is the last time we will see Agent Carter…

Anyway, do you have any shows in mind that you would like to recommend? I do love Police Procedural shows like NCIS, Castle, Forever, and Bones. I just started watching a comedy show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Also, I like some action fantasy like Supernatural. Feel free to share your recommendations on the comment box below. Thanks!
