Another Ryan Murphy show and another genre he tackles flawlessly. Wealthy high school student Payton Hobart has always dreamed that he's going to be President of the United States. But first he'll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape at his own high school. Entertaining and comical, the story has a fluid development and it has some interesting, diverse and innovative characters that make it more engaging. Jessica Lange's presence is a sight to behold and I want more of this show.
Philip Pullman's fantasy trilogy "His Dark Materials" gets yet another adaptation of the first novel 'Northern Lights' with this BBC and HBO production. Young Lyra is destined to liberate her world from the grip of the Magisterium which represses people's ties to magic and their animal spirits known as daemons. It really makes a huge difference when adapting a great book into a series of 8 episodes, rather than a 2-hour movie that sadly failed to exceed expectations.As far as I remember, the accuracy is terrific, even goes beyond and it gets the proper ending from the book. Looking forward to more seasons!
One more decade of political rivalries, romantic dramas and historical accuracy of the most important monarchy in the world. Harold Wilson's era, the terrible and tearjerking tragedy of Aberfan, Prince Charles' love affair and investiture as Prince of Wales and the Miners' Strike of 1974 are all highlights of this season and the performances of the entire new cast are extremely on point, which will guarantee them some nominations next year. This show only becomes stronger and greater. Can't wait for Season 4 which will be very interesting.
The best British melodrama series comes to an end. And with very satisfying conclusions for all of Julian Fellowes' beloved characters. This final season of the show was very compelling and funny, particularly the battle royale for the hospital affairs, which was a delight to witness. Finally the two daughters of the family find their right husbands and the servants downstairs get their deserved success. Thank you for all the laughs and the drama! It was the best!
The slasher-themed season has come to an end and it has sadly become one of my least favourites. Not only were Paulson and Peters entirely absent from the season (the only two actors that have always been part of the main cast), but it also had a very weak plot. Some characters like Mr. Jingles and his complex personality are to be highlighted. The gore is quite abundant and it really doesn't disappoint, to the point that it might be too much for some. The decade of the 80's and its distinctive music is well represented, though.
The show keeps being entertaining without losing attention on each of its characters and it continues to show the evolution of the TV's best posh and conservative British fictional family. It revolves around more issues that challenge the character's values and make them change their perspectives on irrational prejudice, life's wrong choices and their respective second opportunities on matters of love and injustice.
Even though it is not as good as its predecessors, this season has new challenges and all of our characters are tried in multiple ways that will only increase the love we have for them. After the death of Matthew, everything seems lost, but there is a light at the end of the spectrum. The lively presence of Rose is a nice touch, Mary's suitors are good additions and the hardest problem faced by Mr. and Mrs Bates is so hard to watch that it is a great relief when it is sorted out.
A powerful horror drama series in which a fractured family confronts haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events they witnessed during their stay. Relying heavily on flashbacks, the storytelling is superb, the acting is on point and the writing is just delightful. 10 episodes, some of which are focused on a individual main character and are very effective, but the great highlights are the incredible very theatrical single-shot episode and the literally poetic finale that seemed taken from a book full of sad poems. Mind-blowing!
So many happy and extremely sad moments in this season. It truly emulates a roller-coaster of emotions. It is impossible not to love these characters so much after three seasons and you seem to know them as you knew them personally and it's difficult not to get affected by their problems and satisfied with their success and their happiness. The level of plot twists reveals a superb script writing Julian Fellowes and it is evident that even the aristocracy can be modernised for the better.
Sadly, this show just gets worse and worse with every season, despite the appearances of the main show's great characters such as Morgan and Dwight. There were some innovative ideas, such as radioactive walkers and the fight for gas. But the deus-ex-machina moments and the characters' stupid decisions are just boring and repetitive. The new villain Virginia looks promising but this needs to be more entertaining.
The Crawleys now deal with important events of the Great War, such as the Battle of the Somme, the Easter Rising, the Russian Revolution, the Battle of Amiens, the Armistice, and the Spanish flu epidemic. The change of every character with the war alters the perspective of aristocracy and the deaths in this season do not go unnoticed. RIP William and Lavinia. This is a crude sad season but it has some happy moments.
After some seasons with lazy writing, filler episodes and boring plots, this season has again given the whole series a new look thanks to the new writer and showrunner Angela Kang, who has delivered a powerful season, full of situations that had never been seen in the show, taking risks at changing important moments from the comics into something more television-worthy. There were important and sad losses and the emotional impact was deep. A good adaptation of the new hostile community, the Whisperers, as a strong and unique enemy and the moral behind the characters' choices have saved the show from losing its touch.
Season 2 (and the series?) has come to an end with a surprising great finale full of shocking moments. It was satisfying to see more of the Monterey Five after the big event in Season 1, having to deal now with Mary Louise played by the terrific and powerful Meryl Streep seeking justice. She just leaves you open-mouthed whenever she's on screen. All the drama faced by each and every one of the actresses is enough to make you care and feel for their characters a great deal. Many questions unanswered and more time at Monterey might be necessary.
A pesar de que se haya decidido interrumpir la feliz vida de los personajes luego del primer atraco tan exitoso para escribir esta nueva temporada, la realidad es que en la vida no hay finales de cuentos de hadas. Era inevitable que uno de ellos cometería un error que le costaría la libertad y es la excusa perfecta para reunir a la banda para el otro plan de robo en el Banco de España propuesto por el querido Berlín. Nuevos personajes interesantes, nuevos retos mucho más complejos, nuevas tensiones y una villana con piel de oveja más peligrosa que nadie. ¡Siguiente, por favor! :D
In the summer of 1985 in Hawkins, romance blossoms and our characters are growing up. But danger still looms in the town, the Upside Down still has unfinished business and a Soviet infiltration is up to no good. Despite missing some of that strong 80's nostalgia of the first seasons, it is still an enjoyable and thrilling season that keeps you on the edge of your seat. A very emotional and action-packed finale proves that the show is evolving. Too many Deus-ex-machina moments but it delivers on the visual effects. Think about next season very carefully.
This remarkable limited series begins with a mysterious murder investigation in a small town in California where a community of wealthy families have dealt with all kinds of rivalries, rumours, secrets and deception. The emotionally troubled mothers at a prestigious school might be hiding more secrets than it meets the eye and the fact that the identities of the killer and the victim are not disclosed until the end makes it quite intriguing. The critical praise and the multiple Emmys, Golden Globes and SAGs it has garnered are very much well-deserved, thanks to the extremely convincing performances by all the leading actresses with such a compelling plot. Great character development!!
The end of an era... This extraordinary show has captivated millions of people all around the world but it will keep on doing it. For me, this is the greatest TV series that ever was or ever will be, based on George R.R. Martin's magnificent novels and one of the greatest fantasy works the world has ever seen. Taken as a whole, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have provided us with an unprecedented spectacle, despite their writing flaws and questionable decisions concerning the fate of important characters. They chose remarkable directors, a talented huge cast that delivered unparalleled performances and a crew that was able to bring a fantasy world to life with astounding visual and sound effects. It was a fantastic journey, and it wouldn't have been the same without the breathtaking music of Ramin Djawadi. It was a satisfying bittersweet finale for an epic series, truly unexpected. The story managed to surprise me until the very end!
9-1-1 Season 2 has finished and this procedural drama keeps on delivering despite its unbelievable and incredible incidents, convenient and cheesy romances and the fact that everything seems to happen to these first responders (this team really suffers a great deal). But Ryan Murphy's crew always keeps it inspiring with life lessons at the end of each episode and with the help of great characters brought to life by an amazing cast.
And that's a wrap! The viewing experience was incredible with this fantasy series based on Cassandra Clare's novels during these 3 years and a half. It is a shame that it is over but its conclusion was more than satisfying. Its evolution was evident when the plot became more mature and the character development was led in the right way for many of the leads, even though they were a bit cheesy sometimes. The story of a world of demon-hunting human-angel warriors and vampires, werewolves, warlocks and seelies that sends a message of diversity, inclusion and acceptance. The visual effects, cinematography and set design are underrated and should deserve more recognition.
Another and perhaps the most faithful adaptation of Victor Hugo's classic novel to date. The timeless beloved story of love, injustice, redemption and hope is once again brought to life by an incredible cast that includes Dominic West, David Oyelowo,
Lily Collins, Olivia Colman and Josh O'Connor. With only 6 episodes, the series made me relive the experience I had when I read that long book thanks to a flawless production design and a believable immersion in those hard times for poor people in a post-Napoleonic France. Even though I deeply love the 2012 musical adaptation, this series is the ultimate ideal adaptation.
