2013 Summer TV Shows

Graceland

This has been an interesting summer with a lot of different shows as well as the usual shows. Suits is just over the top good, Devious was an interesting introduction and so is Graceland. And I never get tired of Franklin & Bash, I just wish there were more episodes to enjoy.

DeviousMaids

  • Falling Skies – Haven’t finished it, but its getting intense
  • Franklin & Bash – Loving the show as usual, but not more Epic then the last season
  • Suits – This season is Epic, its ridiculous how good its gotten
  • Devious Maids – This turned out to be a surprise of a show, the maids know everything
  • Royal Pains – This show is just as good as usual, I do enjoy Dr Lawson
  • The Newsroom – Haven’t started it yet, but really looking forward to it.
  • Graceland – A pretty interesting Interagency Law Enforcement Team in Malibu, a complex action show
  • Under the Dome – Halfway through it, still confused as to the dome but very interesting to see whats happening with people
  • Rookie Blue – This season isn’t as good as the previous one
  • Ray Donovan – Crazy show, just the first two episodes and its over the top

Chicago Fire - Season 1

Logitech Harmony Link

I have always wanted to control my media devices from my Android device or my iPad, and usually for my universal remote needs I use the Logitech Harmony One. This time around they have come up with the perfect little device and you don’t have to attach anything to your Android or Apple device to make it work, The Logitech Harmony Link ($100) is the solution. This sleek system consists of a small black transmitter that connects to your home network via Wi-Fi, letting you control your entire system from your Android or iOS device without the need for any dongles or other attachments. The hardware can be hidden in the cabinet and you can still control it, in my case I don’t have any TV guides to use but I do have all my different Activities that I have. If you have use any Logitech device before then this is very familiar to setup. There seems to be some negative reviews regarding its limitations but still its pretty good to get some activities going, I might get it to try it out.

Season Finales – V, Fringe, & The Mentalist

Fringe

Fringe:
Fringe just took it over the top with the series finale the past week, seriously wasn’t expecting it to be this big of an ending. Walter Bishop carries the whole show, he is a genius and his child like actions are fantastic, then there is Walternate.

VDay2009

V:
V just kept getting better from episode to episode, I’m happy they are renewing it another season. The season finale packed one punch after another, the ending was a cliffhanger. The one thing the V’s hate the most is human emotions and it took the drastic affect at the end. For the longest time they built relations with humans to take a huge twist at the end. What an insane ending for the show, now its going to take a completely different angle and I can’t wait for the fall season.

Mentalist

The Mentalist:
Its one of those shows that you just enjoy watching, the Mentalist giving his services to the CBI to help them solve cases. Season 2 is even better then Season 1, they delve deeper into the other characters and the ending was a hell of a climax. If you haven’t seen this show your missing out.

3D TV/Movies Are Overrated

3dtvs

All this hype about Avatar 3D and all the manufacturers talking about 3D TVs coming out very soon, outfitting movie theaters with 3D projectors. There is one factor they keep omitting to talk about, its those tacky glasses which are in red and blue. The first 3D movie I remember watching was a Michael Jackson movie back in the early 90s/late 80s in Disney Land with my family, and those little things were flying around and I walked out with a headache.

I tried watching a few 3D movies after that but all I remember is walking out with a severe headache, and throwing those glasses in the trash. Its an added overhead for movie theaters, and to have those glasses at home just to watch TV. With TV manufacturers they need a new gimmick to convince people to buy these expensive TVs but you don’t really need it since it won’t be nicer that what you already have. TVs which 120Mhz @1080p is fantastic, the newer ones are causing a certain amount of blur but going 3D is not an improvement just a huge headache and tacky glasses for people, manufacturers need to sell more TVs fast and this is the best way they could think off.
