I skipped one day (September 17) of writing just because. And then skipped again just because (September 18) again. Well, the first skip - September 17 - was because I got tired. Lied down on my bed and poof knocked out. I did not do anything physical at all that day, though. But it was that Friday that got me spent on talking, thinking and listening to geeky stuff at work that my brain cells were already raising white flag to just seeing the meeting invite. So I decided to give the brain cells some rest.
Next day. September 18, I was going to write around after Eylz's Back in the day we got published. I was going to follow suit but I started writing while I was still engrossed with what I was watching in Netflix. So I tapped a few lines and then my attention drifted off back to the series.
I bargained for "one more episode". You know? The same begging off when your alarm goes off right on the time you wanted it to wake you up but you beg for "five more minutes". We all know how that ends up, right?
So that is this now.
So what got my attention hooked? Let us put that on top of the list then, huh? This is not arranged according to how much I loved or liked the TV Series. Doing that will take me a long time comparing which one made me laugh most, smile the widest, daydream after or cry the most. But for sure the top will always be F.R.I.E.N.D.S. No series has yet bumped it from the top spot. So I am just listing them down :D I am only picking some. When I started listing them down and writing about one, I started remembering other series and I think I will end up typing a lot and longer than I intended to write. Also, not entirely a review.
I hesitated watching this one at first. It felt initially offensive. But brushing off my snowflake tendency, decided to try and it did not disappoint. Well until the fifth season, that is when it started becoming a musical. That got me weirded out. That is a bit off-theme. I get it that they were portraying the "god's presence' in the series as something too enjoyable you won't be able to keep yourself from singing and dancing, it was just there is a little snag in blending it in.
The actor who plays Lucifer, Tom Ellis, was good in keeping his character's posture consistent. He did show a trunk full of musical talent there, too - playing his grand piano and singing.
It is a fun watch seeing how the characters interact, blend and at some point get along and get their differences sorted out and build cool friendships. It got me thinking about the state of humanity because the writers did not hesitate in spilling out some of their cries about issues of God and man projecting it through the characters. It does show a slice of the fallen world. I would understand if most conservatives will find it truly offensive, because it is not "edifying" at all to a standard. But really, it is a secular film. What do you expect, right? It's not Facing the Giants, Prayer Room or Fireproof level.
Did it make me laugh and cry and smile? Oh yes!
This one, I can go for reruns over and over. I may be not as much as a fan as @crazybeautifulfurmom is , but when she does cite an episode, I do get the flashbacks of the scenes. Haha. It is hard to to pick the favorite character because everyone has their own way of things that blend and complement with others. Picking just one character will make make me feel incomplete. Like, for example, if I pick just Phoebe, then I'd miss Joey's, Chandler's, Monica's, Ross', Rachel's persona. This is that one series that I had to always ask my friend to give me a copy of so I can watch it non-stop. No dull series or episode for this one. Very, very good mix of characters.
They got me laughing the hardest in every episode. I enjoyed their "company" so much I found myself crying in their finale feeling like real friends are moving out and away.
Ah these two! From the first episode up to the last that I remember. I started with The Blacklist first. Loved the wit and the story of this one. I remember my brother calling me one time when he started with the series telling me, "Now I do not know who to believe." It has tons of trickery, twists and deceptions that will keep you hooked.
While waiting for the next episodes/series of The Blacklist, I had a parallel start with How to Get Away With Murder and this one, too had lots of twists. I got tired of it after three seasons I think. When the story got too twisted and it felt like the plots are getting forced to be interested so they have to twist it some more. It became tiring.
Watched this during college. That time I had insane long breaks that I can insanely still go home to watch a few episodes and then go back to school for next class. I am not entirely a Superman fan but I did get hooked with Lois and Clark back in the day so I kind of wanted to know what's Clark's background.
My uncle and my brother said though it is a little revised. But how would I know. Hahha I just enjoy the stories per episode.
Loved their dialogues on friendship and love and this is that series with cool soundtrack.
How about you? Right off the top of your head, what were the series that you liked or superliked? What series got your eyes wet both for laughing so hard and secretly crying, too?
