House : Tv Series Review

House TV Series Review - Sarcasm and Brilliance of Dr House

The thing with shows revolving around the lives of doctors, is that there is an abundance of such shows. There are only so many times you can scare the viewer with near death escapes, bring him close to tears with unexpected deaths or infuse in him a fervent hope. So, to hold on to the audience each show has something special, or atleast tries hard to give us something special. In House, its the protagonist around whom the show revolves that ensures…

Newsroom

Its about idealistic journalism. how journalists should try and do the right thing as they have a moral obligation to society who depend on them for the facts. But the fun, witty , charming way this is portrayed makes the show such an interesting watch. Another reason for this show being one of my favourites is that almost all characters have something worth rooting for. Every story, the acting, specially the dialogues (and there is such a large amount of it in…

Suits Review

Suits is a fun show. If you want to watch heavy courtroom drama then you probably want to choose a show like Boston Legal. Suits, on the other hand, doesn’t take itself too seriously, and if you are okay with that then you are sure to be highly entertained. In the cutthroat world of New York corporate law are a bunch of lawyers (and paralegals; there is a difference and I will come to that shortly) who are talented, smart…

Homeland

Homeland series review

If I had to write a one line review of the series, I would say Homeland is a good, solid show. It is fast paced without being shallow. Also it keeps you guessing and makes you actually care about the fate of everyone involved. Carrie Mathison, as the bipolar CIA analyst, is flawlessly portrayed by Claire Danes. She is somewhat of a prodigy, disregarding rules, going crazy, with a hawk eyed single mindedness, ingenuity and fierce loyalty. Her mentor, in some ways…

  I am sure all of us at some point or the other have dreamed of having some super human power, however, the harsh truth sucks! We are simple human beings and that’s all we are gonna be. But then we have these fictitious heroes to look up to! Amongst all those, Flash is one of my favourites! Speed is indeed an awesome super power to have [after invisibility and teleportation, my personal favourites! Sigh! ] The CW Network sitcom…

Damon Salvatore

damon salvatore

I read this and thought of Damon Salvatore..   “Anything less than mad, passionate, extraordinary love is a waste of time. There are too many mediocre things in life to deal with and love shouldn’t be one of them.”   There is definitely nothing mediocre and everything mad, passionate and extraordinary about Damon Salvatore’s love. The love he had for a ruthless selfish vampire, and the love he has for a lovely modern day girl.   I read Vampire Dairies…
