Agents of SHIELD

(Written on 16. 9. 2014)

Today, I finished watching the first season of Agents of SHIELD. It was awesome and with several twists I didn’t expect. Like, who turned out to be the clairvoyant and also that Ward was Hydra. Well, I did expect that a little, as it was a part of a story I read, but still… Well, the good part is that they caught him and there were a lot of funny parts.

Like, at the end, there was Coulson going back for a “thing” and firing it and obliterating the clairvoyant who wasn’t really clairvoyant.

There will also be a second season, so I’m very much looking forward to it. And how Coulson will rebuild SHIELD. That will surely be interesting.

This show is really good and I loved it. Also the fact, that it is Marvel is a good thing. Right now, I’m pretty much obsessed with anything that is Marvel, so I watch anything and everything I can get my hand son. Including non-Marvel movies that have the Avengers cast playing in them.

And it will probably not stop there and I will look also into stuff that has Coulson’s team playing in it.

And what about you, dear readers? Do you like Marvel and more specifically Agents of SHIELD? If yes, what did you like the most? For me it was the fact that Coulson was alive and kicking ass. Also, I love Skye’s hacking skills and the bickering between Fitz and Simmons. It’s hillarious.

On the other hand, I was really hoping that maybe Hawkeye or Black Widow would appear on it for at least one episode, but no, they didn’t… Well, we did get to see Sif in one ep… But that’s not enough. So I hope that one of the two I mentioned will be on season 2. Even if just for one episode. One episode would be enough and Hawkeye is such an underappreciated Avenger… I think he should have more screen time.

Okay, I will shut up now and let you make heads and tails of this post.

And as for coments, they would make me happy, so if you have something to say, say it!

The Saddle Club

the_saddle_club_girls_by_winklegirl-d5u7yrw

Yesterday, I saw the last episode of the series Saddle club. I’ve been watching it on and off for a while now. I’m not sure which season I like the most… I mean, all have some better and some worse episodes. Though if I really had to choose, I’d probably pick the part where Dorothee is. Which means the first part of season 2. But I prefer the actors from season 3. At least for the saddle club girls. And I like Simon. He livened things up. 

On the other hand, I was kinda missing Red and Kristie from the last season. Though Trouble the donkey more than made up for them. And Jack wasn’t bad either. 

So, what is the series about anyway? 

It is about three girls who love horses and form a club together. During the series they encounter different problems, be it Veronika, the annoying rich girls or some problems between them. 

Each season has a strong ending, and most of the episodes are pretty interesting. If I remember correctly, I only skipped one episode. And that was because that one didn’t interest me. 

Sure the show is ment for kids, but it is pretty decent. It’s definitely watchable even if you’re not a kid. On the other hand, the books it is based on, are pretty terrible. I gave up after not even a full chlapter. If I were to say what it was like, I’ll qoute my mom: “It’s a badly written horse-riding guide.”

And I agree with that.

The books are not worth it, but the series ain’t bad. 

Dorothee_Series_2_1-195x219

So, the main characters are Carrole, Stevie and Lisa. The main antagonist (who sometimes does the right thing) is Veronica and then there are some of the more minor characters. In the first series it’s Red, Kristie, Melanie and Ashley as well as Phill (NOT COULSON :D). In second series, we gain Dorothee for the first half and some other characters make repeated appearance. 

And finally, in the last season, apart from the cast being completely new, we have no Ashley, but gain Jenn as well as Trouble the donkey. We also switch Red for Jack and gain Dezi during the season. 

Oh, and for Thor maniacs, in one of the episodes (I think it’s in the second season), young Chris Hemsworth plays a new vet. Well, young… Younger. But it’s interesting. You can recognize him for his eyes and lips, but other than that, he looks completely different. And has short hair!

So, if you’re into horses, this is a pretty decent thing, even though it has girls as pretty much every important character. I’m not much for things where main characters are girls, but this one is not that bad. Though if they did a version where the main characters are guys… Or out right a gay version, I’d be watching it in a heartbeat!

See ya!

BBC’s Sherlock: The Blind Banker

(Written on 30. 7. 2014)

I just finished the second episode of this epic TV Series. And while it may be a bit hard to describe, I really did enjoy it. That is, apart from the “circus” scene, which was a bit boring. 

So, the gist of it is that Sherlock is hired to check some bank security or something as there was a message left in yellow paint. This leads to three serial murders in which the first two look like suicides – at first. But only to the detective inspector, who in this episode isn’t Lestrade and whose name I didn’t catch. So Sherlock sees through it and declares it murderes and then tries to decode the messages, which leads them to the circus and some weird chinese organization – Black lotus or something, that smugle things and sell them. 

This organization lost one of their items and are trying to get it back. In the end, they kidnap John thinking he’s Sherlock. And Sherlock decodes the message with the usage of the right book and then goes to save John’s but, who in turn saves the life of the girl being held hostage with him. 

And it all ends with them finding the item in question and revealing it’s value to the girl who it has been given to by one of the people who were murdered. 

Lastly there is this scene with the boss of the organization who is on video chat with – obviously – Moriarty, even though it’s not explicitly said or anything. She says she will not reveil his identity and he agrees she wont and then she’s shot – probably by a sniper of some kind.

 

And that’s the end of the episode. 

I have to say I enjoyed it, even though the first one was better. Somehow lighter and funnier. I’m gonna be watching the rest soon, but probably not right now, I like to have a bit of time between the episodes, and in the meantime watch SHIELD or something similar. 

As for SHIELD, I will probably not write about it. Or, if I will, it will not be detailing every single episode, as I’m already on episode 12 or something like that. I might write something about it when I’m donen with it, but I’m not making any promises. 

 

Well, there is one promise I will make, annd that’s that I will post here more often. And if I have nothing to write, I will at least post some of the photos I have in my folder that are yet to be published. 

See ya soon!

The neverending story

The internet’s a bitch! A real big one!

Okay, I should probably start at the begining. You see, when I was little, there was this TV series. It was called The neverending story. And, it was live action, not animated! And that’s the problem. Whenever I try to look that up, all I get is the animated series which I’m so not interested in!

Watching_over_you____by_LucioCrescent

And, this one, the live action one, is nowhere to be found! Which is lame! I mean, come on! It’s way better than the animated series! Isn’t there anyone who would agree with me? The thing is, I like it more than the movies, which are good, but not good enough. I guess it’s because it’s more connected. The Fantasya land or whatever and the real world. In the movies, it’s not so connected. Also, in the series, he doesn’t finish the book in one go, and I quite like that.

So, if there’s anyone out there that know where to get this and watch it, I’m all ears!

See ya.
