TV: Scandal

25 Jul

 

I have been surprising myself lately of the change of taste when it comes to TV shows. I mean, I never thought I would ever wanna watch the 8 seasons of Desperate Housewives, or get into the cheesy drama of Sex & the City, or even be attached to the non existing, in your dreams kind of characters of Greys Anatomy, but guess what, I did, and now im doing it again with Scandal.

The only difference about Scandal is that…it IS different. The show is very well written, the amount of vocabulary they use is unbelievable, and the way the connect the characters can be over whelming.

To me this wasnt in my agenda since I know it had to do a lot with politics, and I don’t like that, not one bit. But after I started watching it, I realized how im interested I am in conspiracies and how I started connecting the dots myself and turns out to be right most of the times!

I just started watching season 3 and its going well, however I do sense some repetitiveness and unrealistic connections, but lets see how it goes. I hope this season has a WOW ending. Here’s the trailer incase you havent seen it before:

TV: Grey’s Anatomy

3 Mar

 

SARAH DREW, CHANDRA WILSON, JUSTIN CHAMBERS, KEVIN MCKIDD, ELLEN POMPEO, SANDRA OH, PATRICK DEMPSEY, JAMES PICKENS JR., JESSE WILLIAMS, SARA RAMIREZ, JESSICA CAPSHAW

Yep I said it, I’m becoming one of those people, or should I say .. one of those girls? doesn’t matter, what matters is that im like everyone else at the moment, and I finally know what Grey’s Anatomy is all about.

2 years ago probably I was so against many drama series that were aired, simply because I used to consider it a waste of time, too much drama, and not really my interest. It all started with me watching Desperate Housewives, then moving on to Sex and the City, and now this! I just had to! Its like everyone knows whats happening except me, and I just don’t wanna be the elephant in the room, so I started watching it :P

I would be lying if I said that I fell in love with it, because I didn’t! The show can be boring sometimes, repetitive, and pain in the ass. nevertheless, it’s a good waste of time! I really enjoy watching it in the morning on weekends, or before I go to bed at night. All im saying is that it’s not bad.

So far I have reached season 7, and people been ruining a lot of the events for me, so im trying to watch it as fast as possible to catch up with everyone else. I gotta say that I hated the fact that Izzy no longer on the show, that George died, and that Owen exists!

oh well, whose your favourite?

TV: Orange is the New Black

21 Oct

oitnb

A week ago I heard about a new show that’s aired on Netflix called Orange is the New Black, it sounded interesting so I downloaded the whole season and started watching it. It’s all about prison drama, but not just any drama, female prison drama!

The show is fresh and new and based on a true story, it reminded me so much of Prison Break, but with a fun and comedic side, more drama than action, and it’s definitely not about “how to escape prison”. I gotta warn you though, it has some sexual content.

There isn’t much to say actually, you gotta give it a try and let me know what you think. I personally can’t wait for the second season to be out in 2014. Here is the trailer:

 

TV: Sex & the City

I have been very much into series lately, and I have NEVER thought that I would say this, but this show is actually really good! I have heard so many about it for the last decade till I was like “I need to know whats this whole fuss about”, so I got all the seasons and started watching them back to back. It took me a month many to finish them and I was sad too! Its soo funny, interesting and entertaining. What do you think about it?

What I was surprised about also are the movies! I didn’t expect them to be good actually, but I really enjoyed them too, I would probably watch them again.

So why I never thought I would like the show? well..simply because of Sarah Jessica Parker (a.k.a horse face). I never liked her, her acting or anything about her. I was shocked when I first saw her in season one (she looked very young…and…OK), comparing to how she looks in her latest movies! I also became to like her through the seasons, which shocked me even more, but she’s good!

Who would be my favourite character, well, I guess everyone would say this..SAMANTHA! she is absolutely hilarious. Whose yours?

Well..I think i had to let this out. Now next on the watch list is Game of Thrones and perhaps scandal.

TV: Goodbye Spartacus :(

If you are a fan of Spartacus, then you probably know that the show has come to an end. Sadly, after 3 seasons only, the story has ended and we will no longer see those pretty faces or their six packs :P

This show had a lot of ups and downs since the role actor passed away and had to find another suitable for the character. Not only that, but the first season had so much drama, killing, revenge and action going on that we barely saw in the next seasons. I wasnt expecting much of it, but it was too late to stop as I was already hooked, so I just had to finish it and am glad that I did.

Not to give out too many spoilers, but the last season has more drama and action than the one before. They definitely took it to another level and got us all excited and waiting in the last 2 episodes. It didn’t end the way that I wanted, but I guess it was ok, though it could have been better.

Now since I was watching Spartacus a lot of people have told me to watch Game of Thrones and to be honest I wasnt very interested since I watched the trailer. But since Spartacus is over, maybe I should give it a shot after all!

Any shows you recommend?

The Long Holiday

22 Feb

4551262835_cc40a44579_z

As most of you already have traveled, and some of you hit the camps and shalaihs for the long holiday, I sit here and do nothing :( Everyone is extremely excited about the long holiday, and made lots of plans, but I couldn’t cuz it seems am not taking Sunday off, plus I have an event for work on Monday, so that probably killed it.

But now looking at it, what would I do if I really had the long holiday? would I travel? Ofcourse not, cuz I just hate packed airports and let’s be honest, 75% of Kuwait already traveled! Ok so what would I do then? Probably go out more, see friends, do absolutely nothing! Which is kinda the same. So maybe I shouldnt feel so bad about this after all.

So what are you guys doing? are traveling anywhere interesting? doing any fun activity around Kuwait? anything different maybe? please do share it with us, we would love to hear about it :) Have a great one all, we love you Kuwait.

Oh and if you are not from Kuwait, we are having this long holiday as a celebration of the national and independence day (25, 26 Feb).
