Pleasant surprise of “Agent Carter” (2015.)

If you read comics then you probably know who Peggy Carter is. If that’s not the case and you noticed a new series about cute female agent surrounded with male colleagues who don’t take her seriously than you probably noticed campy surroundings and comical atmosphere. If, despite all that you continued to watch the series…

“HOUSE OF CARDS” SEASON 3: BURNING BRIDGES, WIDENING RIFTS

“House of Cards” in its first three seasons established itself as one of the best political thrillers currently available on all platforms. Frank Underwood and his wife Claire entered the minds of many viewers while they gave us the insight into the functioning of American politics and we followed the magical couple through the rights…

Story of the “Vikings” goes on – S01/02 REVIEW.

  When I was growing up I loved “History Channel”. There was something about history that always haunted me and that channel was like Holy Grail I never came to enjoy (we didn’t have a cable subscription at the time). Today that Holy Grail has become more an empty cup than anything else. Pseudo-documentaries, conspiracy…

“Bosch” – Season 1 review

Bosch” was one of Amazon pilots in the last pilot season. There were four shows in that pilot season, which were worthy of attention. “After”, “Bosch”, “Mozart in the Jungle” and “Transparent”. About “Transparent” everything is said already, Golden Globe, awards and appraisal coming from everywhere made this show one of the best Amazons has…

About the “Golden Globes”… (2015.)

Awards madness is heating up. Golden Globes are over and in the next month everybody will be preparing for the “Oscars” as the final and the most important award of the season. I will not list all the winners in this text, and if you want you can see the complete list here. The most…

Few thoughts about “Emmy” awards.

“Emmy” Awards are over. Winners are known, losers too. Curtains are down and show goes on. “Breaking Bad” is an absolute winner, and the final season of Mr Heisenberg is awarded with “say my name“ Emmy. Is it justified is another question, since Kevin Spacey and Matthew McConaughey were in Mr Cranston’s category too.  I wrote…

Are the promises in “The Promise” (2010.) kept?

imdb „The Promise“ (2010.) is controversial British mini-series about the events in Palestine/Israel. History is a circle that repeats itself. In recent productions that I’ve watched that fact was never more obvious than in this series. In four episodes, we follow young British girl Erin Matthews into the Palestine, where the story will become double…

Why am I not so true about the “True Detective” ?

HBO shows are always met with great expectation and “True Detective” was no exception. Lineup made of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson was promising and fans were ecstatic about the new production. Music on the intro was catching, story was crossing timelines and everybody were thankful that HBO produced one more great series, worth of…

Amazon pilot season: “After” (2014.) pilot or how SF pilots should be made.

Amazon recently announced its pilot season and launched several pilots  to the review. I am skeptical about such concepts, so when “After” pilot started I wasn’t expecting much. Especially since “Star-crossed” on the CW network disappointed and I sincerely doubted that network screenwriters can make a good, new SF series anymore. Series of disappointments in…
