Late Spring TV Report (2016)


It’s been so long since I last did one of these that I don’t know if I remember how to do one.  I don’t think I did one once last year but I’m going to try to better about getting these out.  It’s nice to be able to talk about shows that are currently running.  There are times when I start off loving a show only to be disappointed at the end.  Also, there are those American shows that I don’t have the time to do full reviews or shows that I’ve given up midway that it’s a nice way to recap some thoughts on those shows.

Just Bananas About: Week of 2/15/16

I’m probably one of the biggest fans of The X-Files but have to admit that I was skeptical when I first heard that they were reviving the series. Sure, I’d love to see Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) back in action but let’s face it. The series creator and showrunner, Chris Carter, hasn’t had a major hit since the series went off air. I’ve been pretty faithful as who can say that they saw the 2nd movie, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, in theaters when it came out in 2008? I distinctly remember that it was only me and two other nerds in the theater. Lol. Still, I began to get excited with each new teaser and trailer that came out.

I’d thought I’d end up talking about series revival sooner but last Monday’s episode has been my favorite episode so far. Just to a quick series overview of the episodes that’s aired so far.

Just Bananas About: Week of 2/8/16

I’ve been quite biased about the live televised musicals. Sometimes the thrill of watching something live in the theater doesn’t always go hand-in-hand with camerawork. However, I was curious to watch Grease: Live for two reasons: the cast and the fact that they performed live not only in front of the cameras but also in front of an audience. There’s a reason why it was the talk around the watercooler last week.

End of the Year TV Report (2015): Part 3

This last one is gonna be a tough one as I did not do a good job in keeping up with all of my usual American/British shows. In the last few weeks of the 2015 and until now, I’ve been trying to bingewatch on as much as I could, one series at a time. I got through some but not all so I guess my New Years’ resolution is to catch up as there are new series starting up soon!

The ratings, courtesy of Adele lyrics, are as follows:

Must Watch – “Sweetest Devotion” – The sweetest devotion hit me like an explosion
Watch – “Hello” – Hello from the other side…
Just OK – “All I Ask” – All I ask is if this is my last night with you, hold me like I’m more than just a friend
If you’re bored – “Can’t Let Go” – When did it go wrong, I will never know
Pass – “Remedy” – When the world seems so cruel and your heart makes you feel like a fool

End of the Year TV Report (2014): Part 3

Fiiinally…  Apologies for the extreme delays on this last one. I was playing catch-up with a number of the American/British shows has caused a delay with this report.  Yes, I was that far behind.

Late Spring TV Report (2014)


So that’s what they say… I know, I am waaay overdue for TV Report. I could probably come up with a million excuses but that’s just going to take time away from doing the report. And off we go! Continue reading

Just Bananas About: Week of 4/25/14

When New Girl brought Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) together, I was all on board.  Though I was worried about getting bored with the couple, I think the show has done a good job in keeping the comedy alive.  Unfortunately, the pair discovered that they were on different pages in their relationship and decided to go separate ways.  The only issue with their cohabitation and subsequent separation is that the New Girl household is quite full these days.
