Homeland Premiere.

HOMELAND (Season 5)

…was last night and I totally forgot about it. What …the ..fuck. This is one of the best modern political thrillers on TV today and Claire Danes(Carrie Matheson), Mandy Patinkin(Saul Berenson) and Rupert Friend could put any Bourne/Bond combo to shame any day.

If you have not watched the series I can’t recommend it enough. From storyline writing(season 3 was a bit rough) to pacing, to the top notch award winning acting ,this show has it all. Please check it out of you have a chance. Trailer for season 6 below

Game of thrones Season 8 may be more then 6 Episodes

Okay, can I get this out of the way right now?!?.I may look like a fool in 2 years, but it would not be the first time. I don’t think this series is going to end on HBO.I think it’s going to end in movie theatres in the form of a trilogy.

My reasoning for this is that I don’t think they can wrap things up properly in 13 episodes. I also think they have a built in audience who would be more than willing to pay “movie money” to see a “big screen” finale complete with dragons,White walkers and massive, well laid out battles. I know I would……

Programming President Casey Bloys has told TVLine (Shout out and credit to come) that it is still being decided by show runners David Benioff and D.B Weiss if the finale season will be in fact 6 episodes, or perhaps more(I vote for more….can we vote?).

They say they are heading towards the end game, but here’s my theory. Their endgame is settling the affairs of man. Once that is done in the TV series, the victors will turn their eyes to the North, and the War that will matter the most……because Winter will have come.

TVLine is awesome and they provided source material for this article. You friggin rock folks!!

<i>Game of Thrones</i>: Could Season 8 Consist of More Than 6 Episodes?

 

First Look at the Defenders

That’s a pretty neat look. I’ve been looking forward to this series since the beginning of the Marvel series on Netflix. I think Sigourney Weaver is a fantastic choice as the villain and can go toe to toe with any the heroes in this series and the actors that play them. EW took the photo so they get the credit……enjoy

Emerald City : A few words

2016-1129-emeraldcity-aboutimage-1920x1080-ko

This show started up Friday night on NBC with a 2 hours series premiere. I’m going to Good, Bad and Ugly this one since it’s Sunday night and I’m feeling a bit lazy on a full belly.

The Good.

1.Actress Adria Arjona. I had never seen her in anything else before this show and to me that is a good thing because I could not relate her to other characters she has played. She’s doing very well in the role as Dorothy Gale at this point.

2.Vincent D’ Ono frio. The man could paint a fence and probably keep me entertained. Fits into the Wizard of Oz character almost effortlessly.

3.CGI and location sets. Flawless.in each scene I found the background actually added something to it.

4.This is not your grandfather’s Wizard of Oz. The Witches are in check and the Wizard seems to be one holding all the cards of the first episode is any indication

5.Actress Fiona Shaw who plays Mombi. Did not recognize her from her days as Harry Potters mum. A welcome addition

6.The story flowed pretty fluidly with a few bumps that I noticed ,but hopefully those ticks will work themselves out.

The Bad

1.Vincent D’Onofrio played such a masterful role in Daredevil as Kingpin it’s going to take me a while to get used to seeing him in another role.

2.It did play out like a more PG version of Game of Thrones sometimes in set, tone and dialogue.

3.The “Scarecrows”(Oliver- Jackson Cohen) acting chops didn’t particularly stand out. Guess I expected more out of someone with an extensive background in theatre.

The Ugly

1.Sweet Jesus, they played a lot of commercials during the broadcast I saw. It  broke up the pace of the story. If your going with a GOT style, please remember GOT has no commercials.

2.Friday night at 9 pm. Tornadoes is Kansas have done less damage than that time slot to promising shows.

I’ll be watching it weekly as it’s gotten a solid first season of 10 episodes and if done right this could be a hit for NBC
