So… without further ado, here’s PART 2 of my previous blog about my beloved TV series and sitcoms. Enjoy! Or not. I don’t give a damn. LOL.
*DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW – Focuses on time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter, who has to recruit a rag-tag team of heroes and villains to help prevent an apocalypse that could impact not only Earth, but all of time. – imdb.com
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: First, Brandon Routh. Second, Wentworth Miller. Third, all my fave minor characters/baddies from The Flash and Arrow.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: If you’re into comic book/superhero stories, this is definitely right up your alley.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Vandal Savage. Why won’t the dude ever DIE? I know. It’s the whole point of the story. Whatever. I just wish they could thwart him big time. He always seems to be winning.
*GOTHAM – The story behind Detective James Gordon’s rise to prominence in Gotham City in the years before Batman’s arrival. – imdb.com
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Not a big fan of Batman, but I was quite curious about the early and younger days of infamous villains like The Joker, Penguin, Cat Woman, Riddler, Poison Ivy, etc.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: If you’re a fan of the whole Batman universe, then go for it. The young Bruce Wayne is quite charming too. 🙂
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Villains. villains. villains. But the most annoying of them all was Jim Gordon’s insane bitch, ex-fiancée, Barbara Kean. Ugh. I effing loathed her.
*BLINDSPOT – A Jane Doe is found in Times Square with no memory and mysterious tattoos on her body. – imdb.com
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Out of curiosity. The story seemed utterly preposterous at first, but I stayed with it. It is evolving now and there are some really interesting plots.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: I don’t really want to recommend it. Unless, like me, you’re also obsessed with anything involving the police, the FBI or any suspense-thriller-crime dramas.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Jane could be annoying sometimes.
*LIMITLESS – An average 28-year old man that gains the ability to use the full extent of his brain’s capabilities (thanks to a tiny, transparent pill called NZT) is hired by the FBI as a consultant. A television follow-up of the film Limitless (2011). – imdb.com
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: I have no idea who Jake McDorman was before I started watching this. He already mesmerized me from the very first episode. He’s gorgeous and hot, but he’s also funny in that not-so-trying-hard way. The story is quite thrilling too. I’m just a sucker for police/FBI dramas.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: Bradley Cooper appears every now and then. 🙂 And for all the Dexter fans like me, Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) is Jake’s handler in here. 🙂
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Nothing yet. There were just some ho-hum and completely irrelevant episodes every now and then.
*LUCIFER – Lucifer has left hell to take up life on Earth – particularly in Los Angeles, California. When a friend of his is murdered Lucifer joins forces with the good side of the law to discover who the perpetrators are and to give them what they rightfully deserve. – imdb.com
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Tom Ellis is freakin’ burning HOT!!! He’s gorgeous, sexy, charming, charismatic, sarcastic, witty and HE HAS A FREAKIN’ BRITISH ACCENT. Why wouldn’t I watch it?!
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: Dude. Like, DUUUUDDDDEEEE. This is a must-watch. That’s all I can say. Take my word for it. Really.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Nothing!!! I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!
*MOM – Centers on Christy, a newly sober single mom who tries to pull her life together… until her also-trying-to-be-sober-ex-alcoholic mom decided to come back to her life and live with her.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: I wanted to fill that empty, gaping hole which was left by HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, so I gave this a shot. I’ve always thought Anna Faris is hilarious and she did not disappoint me in here. Every episode is filled with laughter and some feel-good moments as well. There are times when I actually want to hug my mom and tell her I love her because of this sitcom.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: It’s one of the best sitcoms airing right now. Take my word for it. Or not. Moreover, the story is easily relatable and somewhat realistic, imo.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Violet, Christy’s teenage daughter is forever annoying. But then again, that’s what teenage daughters are for, right?
*SHADOWHUNTERS – After her mother is kidnapped, Clary must venture into the dark world of demon hunting in order to find clues that can help her find her mother. – imdb.com
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Vampires, werewolves, fairies, warlocks, demons and angels – it has all the right ingredients for the perfect YA fantasy fiction story. I’m a huge fan of the books – I read them all. I watched the movie version and was quite satisfied with it. Unfortunately, this version failed to deliver the desired results. I think it was mostly because of the relatively “newbie” actors that they cast. The only people worthy of praise are the actors playing Simon Lewis – Alberto Rosende and of course, Magnus Bane – Harry Shum Jr.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: If you’re a fan of the books, like me, don’t watch it. You’re just going to get disappointed. I mean, watching MALEC is enjoyable and seeing some characters from the book, who I didn’t see in the movie (Maryse and Robert Lightwood, Max Lightwood, Camille Belcourt, Ragnor Fell, Meliorn, Raphael Santiago) was delightful, but other than that… it’s just pathetic and lacking in all areas.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: A LOT OF THINGS. The awful, eye roll-inducing acting of the lead actors is on top of my list. Why can’t they seem to find the PERFECT Jace Wayland? I mean, Jamie Campbell Bower was okay, tolerable… but this new Jace was just… I can’t even… I just can’t. >_<
*SLEEPY HOLLOW – Ichabod Crane is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Ichabod Crane is one of the best characters ever made. Tom Mison is the perfect guy for this role. I especially like how Ichabod struggled with technology and the modern society throughout season 1 and 2. It was hilarious and adorable at the same time.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: It’s about a hot, gorgeous, smart, time-traveling dude with a British accent. There’s fantasy, suspense, action, lots of comedy, and a bit of horror in it.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Ichabod’s son, Henry. Dude had some serious daddy issues.
*QUANTICO – A look at the lives of young FBI recruits training at the Quantico base in Virginia when one of them is suspected of being a sleeper terrorist.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Again, I’m watching ALMOST everything with the whole FBI concept. I thought this one had potential. There are lots of twists and turns and it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: It has some sassy and sexy babes and hot, attractive dudes. And the story is pretty cool too.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: The betrayal, the jealousy, the bitching – they’re all too cliche-ish and cumbersome.
*SHADES OF BLUE – It stars Jennifer Lopez as the main character Harlee Santos, a single-mother NYPD officer, who is forced to work in the FBI’s anti-corruption task force, whilst dealing with her own financial problems.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Another action-packed police drama. I personally like Jennifer Lopez. I think her acting has improved over the past few years. The story was quite predictable at first, but then it took a sharp turn and now it’s one of the most riveting and stimulating TV shows.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: If Jennifer Lopez is not a good reason for you, then believe me the story is really worth it. It’s quite compelling and it would leave you wanting more.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Her daughter. As usual. Teenage daughters are annoying, huh.
*SUPERGIRL – The adventures of Superman’s cousin in her own superhero career.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: It’s THE BEST superhero TV show airing right now. Melissa Benoist gave life to the character and I couldn’t imagine anyone else playing the role.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: If you’re a fan of superheroes, then watch it. If you’re not, then give it a try. You might like it.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Lots and lots of extremely annoying villains – ESPECIALLY Italia Ricci’s character – The Banshee Bitch. Ugh. I wanted to pound on her on the face with Thor’s hammer, I swear.
*THE 100 – Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity’s lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: I watched this because I was quite interested with the whole post-apocalypse plot and I heard that it was based on a novel. There were also lots of good-looking actors (Bob Morley, Thomas McDonell). It’s a shame the story has become less interesting and more dull and draggy.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: If you’re into sci-fi and dystopian society stories, then this one’s for you. In all fairness to the show, the first season was action-packed and exciting. The second and third – not so much, imo.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Finn – after he went all crazy, gung-ho on those grounders.
*THE BLACKLIST – Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Keen, a new FBI profiler has her entire life uprooted when a mysterious criminal, Raymond Reddington, on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted List turns himself in and insists on speaking to her.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Raymond Reddington and his smooth, funny and witty banters.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: Raymond Reddington is one of the best characters ever made. He’s definitely unforgettable in so many ways.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Liz could be irksome every now and then. But then again, she has her reasons. I just don’t understand them or agree with them.
*THE FLASH – Barry Allen wakes up 9 months after he was struck by lightning and discovers that the bolt gave him the power of super speed. With his new team and powers, Barry becomes “The Flash” and fights crime in Central City.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Like Supergirl, they’ve definitely cast the most perfect actor as The Flash. Grant Gustin is so adorbs and geeky. He definitely puts the F in Flash.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: He’s the fastest man alive. And he’s REALLY cool.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Iris West. From the moment I set my eyes on her, I never liked her. I never liked her as a character and I never liked her for Barry. I just don’t like her.
*THE WALKING DEAD – Sheriff Deputy Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by the walking dead. Fighting the dead, fearing the living.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: Apocalypse. Zombies. Daryl Dixon.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: DARYL EFFING DIXON.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Too much talking and walking and running. Too much drama and romance. Not too many zombie-killing action scenes.
*YOUNGER – After being mistaken for younger than she really is, a single mother decides to take the chance to reboot her career and her love life as a 26-year old.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: I gave it a shot coz I needed to watch more sitcoms. Then I found out Hilary Duff is in here and I just love her to bits. And then I saw Liza’s boy toy – Nico Tortorella. Like, damn, girl! That is one, fine, hot piece of… yeah. You get the picture. 🙂 The story’s quite refreshing and unique too.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: If you’re someone who’s approaching the dreadful age of 30, like me, then this one will definitely make you feel good and feel better about yourself.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: Kelsey is annoying. Liza is annoying. Josh is annoying. They’re all annoying. But not all the time. Just… sometimes. ^^
*YOUNG AND HUNGRY – A well-off young tech entrepreneur hires a feisty young food blogger to be his personal chef.
WHY I’M WATCHING IT: I love Emily Osment. She’s hilarious. And I think she’s one of the best young actresses now. Her sense of humor and wit are incredible.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH IT: It’s just freakin’ hilarious.
WHAT IRKS ME ABOUT IT: I was on #TeamCooper , so for a moment I hated Josh. And I was annoyed that Gabby couldn’t sort out her feelings for Cooper and Josh. I mean, here I am, single and loveless, and she got TWO guys fighting over her. Ugh. #bitter
