Backstrom

From the creator of BONES, comedic crime procedural BACKSTROM centers on an unhealthy, offensive, irascible — albeit brilliant — detective (Rainn Wilson) who is brought back from exile to run the Portland Police Bureau’s Special Crimes Unit (S.C.U.)

A great cast list on this show from Ringer‘s Kristoffer Polaha, to 24‘s Dennis Haysbert, and Weeds‘ Page Kennedy. There is an interesting list of comedians acting in this drama/dark comedy, its not your typical story and I like the character played by Rainn Wilson. This show is going to air in January with only 13 episodes, and I can’t wait to see it. It has a lot of actors that I like with an interesting story.

Games Of Throne – Season 4 – The Wrap Up

I finished up the show a little while back but took me time to talk about it, and it is by far one of the best shows on TV for a very long time now. This season had everything for me and satisfied me by killing off people I hated, one specific bastard that I really hated. I’m assuming who ever is reading this has probably seen season 4, if not then there will be a lot of spoilers ahead. I do love seen the spoilers and there is a lot coming up for Season 5, and I love how the story is developing, now to see whats going to come from the North. Too bad the Prince of Dorne got killed off, Oberyn was a very eccentric character, and as usual Peter Dinklage aka Tyrion Lannister does amazingly and the second half of the season he plays his role brilliantly. I love how there are so many different story lines to follow between John Snow & Daenerys Targaryen and whats going on in Kings Landing but you are always kept on your toes, it’s going to be a while before Season 5 but hopefully its going to be even better.

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel in “Friends”

If you love the show Friends, then you will love this, I honestly couldn’t help myself, I always wish they get back together because the show did end on a high note and I only finished watching the last season this year so only 10 years after the show finished, and thanks to Jimmy Kimmel this episode made me smile.

Silicon Valley – Nerds Rejoice

The world that is Silicon Valley is put on display for everyone to see the quirks and oddities of this industry through this amazing HBO Comedy. Silicon Valley offers an abundance of highly relevant and insightful thoughts on the state of the Dotcom craze. It’s all packaged within an engaging scenario brimming with sharp humor, endearingly eccentric characters and the chance to come along for the ride while they try to make millions. 

HBO managed to develop all the characters within a short span of 8 episodes that you can’t help but love these guys while they go their trials and tribulations in the most hilarious way. Each character is very different from the next with Richard being the main character and each one playing a role in the Pied Piper company. The funny part being that Hooli in the show is acting like a combination of Google/Yahoo in my opinion. It is a show which the nerdiest nerd will love as well as someone with no technical understanding what so ever, living in the bay area for over 5 years I can’t help but love this show on so many levels. If you haven’t watched it your really missing out.

Star Wars Rebels

The Jedi have been wiped out and the Empire spreads tyranny through the galaxy. Hope runs thin. But on the small planet of Lothal a big change is looming. A group of rebels meet a 14-year-old con artist named Ezra and soon it’s clear their destinies are linked. Aboard their ship, the Ghost, Ezra and the rebels embark on an adventure to ignite a rebellion and strike back against the Empire.

Words can not express how excited I am to see this animated feature after watching Star Wars The Clone Wars for 6 years. I was very disappointed when it came to an end but Disney did not want to disappoint and hopefully this will be just as good with just as many characters. It takes place after the Clone Wars with some very different characters, and the Dark Side have taken over, the Storm Troopers are here. In October we get to see the Rebels and how they face the Dark Side, this is going to be Epic.

TV Shows – Canceled & Renewed – 05/2014

Each television season brings lots of different kinds of TV shows but there’s one thing that remains a constant — most of them will end up being cancelled.

Popcorn Time – Basically Netflix For Free

Popcorn time has the same feel to it as Netflix and works relatively smoothly, streaming most of the movies you would like to see. But unlike Netflix it runs on the BitTorrent network so its pulling movies from unknown sources with no traceback to you. Popcorn Time has beta builds which run on Windows, Mac, & Linux, and the best part is that it very user friendly & has an intuitive user interface.

The service was killed off a little while back even though technically they didn’t store any movies, but as it was an open source program someone else picked up the mantle and brought Popcorn Time back to life.

“The YTS team will now be picking up the Popcorn Time project and continuing on like previously,” a developer told TorrentFreak. “We are in a better position copyright wise as for us, because it’s build on our API. It’s as if we have built another interface to our website.” Whether or not this new version of Popcorn Time will last longer than the original remains to be seen, but the team sounds confident it can keep things running. “It’s our vision at YTS that we see through projects like these and that just because they create a little stir in the public, it doesn’t mean they are shut down,” a YTS dev said.

Transformers Prime – Beast Hunters – Predacons Rising

Chronicles the epic battle between the Decepticons and the Autobots in their mission to defend Earth and one day restore their home planet of Cybertron.

This is a sweet ending to the Transformers Prime series, it has been an amazing series with a fantastic storyline development with this 60 minute movie being the perfect final twist. With the end of the series I wasn’t satisfied but with this I was, but I can’t get enough of Peter Cullen, his voice will forever be the guiding voice of Optimus Prime. I couldn’t believe the ending, but I won’t ruin it for anyone but it was a hell of a final battle. I hope that Transformers continue on its success with the new movie and then another animation comes out, since this new one has a lot based on the next stage of the Transformers. If you enjoyed the series you will love this short movie.

Wahlburgers

The combination of this reality tv show couldn’t be any better, it’s very rare that I like a reality tv show, most of them really annoy me. But this one is different, this one has food specifically burgers, which I love, and it has the Wahlburgs, the family of actors that I adore. Mark Walhburg, Donnie Wahlburg, and Paul Wahlburg with their mom have this restaurant and a burger franchise that they want to take across the world or to start off with Boston then everywhere else. Everyone knows Mark Wahlburg from every movie and this New Kids in The Block Days, then there is Donnie Wahlburg who is known to be the bad ass brother in Blue Bloods, always kicking ass and taking names. And then there is Paul the heart of the restaurant and working with their mom, and he is always in the Kitchen and the food just looks so damn good. Seriously I’m thinking that I will be driving there the next time I will be in New York, the food seriously looks amazing, the burgers look so juicy I’m hungry just thinking about it right now. If there is a reality show to watch then this is it.
