Scream Queens [3.5 out of 5]

Scream Queens [3.5 out of 5]

Category : , ,
I’m a 1985 baby and generally, I’ve grown out of teen/college TV flicks. I’m more ‘The Originals’ and less ‘The Vampire Diaries’. Scream Queens is SURPRISINGLY entertaining! There were countless ways how this show could be a major flop but they pulled it off. I can’t wrap my head around it either, but they somehow managed. Some bits are just insanely ridiculous, but in a very funny, very ‘Clueless meets Scary Movie’ way. Tons of references that mostĀ Millennials would find hard to appreciate as well – which really took me by surprise! Shame on me for my teen/college genre prejudice! Shame on me.

If you were part of that generation where Heroes, the original series came out in 2006. You’d be slightly disappointed at the beginning. Give it a shot, it starts out slightly slow, upsetting and slightly irritating, but it’s worth watching. It builds up pretty well, the plot unfolds and before you know it, you are in love with the characters once more. The effects (or CGI?) is top notch and very believable unlike some shows I’ve watched in the past. That in itself is enough to blow your mind. If you just wade through the first few episodes and willing to let go of that purist side of you, you WILL be delightfully entertained!
How To Get Away With Murder [5 out of 5]

Viola DavisĀ is a rock star no doubt but the other actors were nothing short of spectacular as well! I like the dynamics of the group – how they fight, eventually pair up and seeing who they end up with is fun and makes perfect sense after sometime. Although the muhibah part – each person of the group conveniently representing a different demographic kinda threw me off a little, but overall. Yes! More please! Oh and to some extent, yeap you WILL learn a thing or two about getting away with murder. Do apply accordingly.
Vikings [5 out of 5]

Definitely one of my all time favourites! Nice to watch a history type series other than the usual The Tudors, The Borgias and even The White Queen. The White Queen, no contest is crazy awesome though, but yes once in awhile, a break from ‘ye olde english’ is good for the soul. Vikings gives you just that! Learned a lot actually about viking culture and history. Well, most likely not even 60% true but interesting nevertheless =) Gotta love Floki and Lagertha!
Nurse Jackie [2.5 out of 5]

Nurse Jackie [2.5 out of 5]

Huge dramatisation of drug addiction. But the truths in it are tragically real. The hiding, the lying, the ‘skills’ picked up to hide a drug addiction and the eventual bit when everyone gives up on you and all you have left is you, yourself and IV drips. ALTHOUGH, saving grace – the show has a good mix of characters. Very REAL LIFE characters, which is awesome. No flying about on broomsticks or stealing blood bags for dinner. It can get boring after awhile but still awesome.

2 words. DAVID. TENNANT. Eeeks! My ultimate favourite Dr Who plays the evil guy in the series and he does it incredibly well. INCREDIBLY WELL. The lead actress is pretty great too, not your average blonde and busty superhero. In fact, a very jaded, afraid, frail but as you will find out, very strong superhero. Pretty good Season 1. I hope Season 2 can keep the vibe up!
