Merry Christmas Amy

Ok so I can't ignore that tomorrow is the Christmas Day. Probably not because of the reasons you are thinking....but maybe it is?.... Anyway stopping with the mind games, tomorrow is Doctor Who day!

It does look it's going to be awesome and it itself claims that it's the "Best. Christmas. Ever.", but it may be hard to top last year's Christmas Special, 'A Christmas Carol'. That was truly awesome... But again, Doctor who Christmas Speacials tend to be special.(pun fully intended.) Plus with this one, I'm pretty curious about the Narnia reference

 I do like the prequel though, so if any of you missed the prequel or the trailer, hurry up 'cause tomorrow is the big day.

*whispers* Merry Christmas Amy...

Blue Christmas

Hi there everyone,

I feel like a very blue Christmas this year. All the exams and projects and homeworks and life sucked away my Christmas spirit. But I still have my tree, that is one thing I cannot compromise. (Well, actually two things. We have one tree at home with my brother and another tiny one at my dorm with my roommates.)

This Christmas Eve, at home, we ate Chinese food while watching Love Actually. I think we did good, no?

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone!!!
Now go hug someone you love, I have a lonely night of marketing projects, old episodes of Bones and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches ahead... ;)

Assassins of Turkey


Is there any Assassins among you? If you don't know what I'm talking about or if you know and do not play Assassin's Creed, why not?

Assassin's Creed: Revelations just came out last week and believe me when I say it; It. Is. Awesome! And I'm not just biased because the story is in Istanbul aka Constantinople! Well maybe a little :)

Looooooonggg Time

Oh I've got to share this with you. My brother has sorta become an avid reddit user, my inbox is nearly full of mails subjected as: From Reddit Pics: "....." - not that I'm complaining, those are like my saving bell when I don't even know I need them. Anyway he sent me this a while back. Since I'm filling with Doctor Who vibe with the new episodes, I though you might like it too. I don't want to smother you with reddit findings but I'll share stuff that cracks me up, keep tuned. Enjoy.

(On second thought this may be a kind of spoiler, for those who may understand it. Just...beware.)

ASOIAF:B1 AGOT (Not suitable for initials....)

Hey everyone,
I'm having a bit of a writer's block. Oh the high drama of the suffering writers.. *cough* wannabe *cough*. And of course, a severe case of laziness. It's on its way to be clinically proven. Seriously. 

Now remember when I said I hadn't read A Game of Thrones? Yeah, that's not true anymore.
There is so much to say about it. 800 pages worth of words. 
But I'm going to let Mr. Martin say it for me, yet again.
"The devil is in the details, they say." He says at the very end of the book. That may be my favorite part of the book. No, not the quote, the details. 

This may contain a bit of a *SPOILER*.

In the Game of Thrones You Either Live or Die

What did you do in the last 20 hours? I'll tell you what I did, I watched the whole first season of Game of Thrones (I know there are only 10 episodes, but come on, they are almost an hour each plus I gotta eat and sleep sometime...).
Man! I knew it would be good from the reviews and the quick popularity but this level of amazing-ness got to be against some sort of law... (It is known, It is known)

Game of Thrones is actually an adaptation of a series of books, called A Song of Fire and Ice by George R. R. Martin . (And as a Lord of the Rings-lover-blog, we always like authors who has R.R. initials in their
names after Tolkien... They seem to have a promising future.)

Well as I have not read the books -yet- I'm not going to act all high and mighty and try to give you background information but luckily HBO has no problems about that. And I must say their official website for the TV show is pretty impressive.

I should warn you, there are MASSIVE SPOILERS ahead...

Modern Finale

There are shows that you wait every week to watch, especially every week on Thursdays to watch, and there are shows that air on a different day than the rest so you can give your whole attention to it. Modern Family is just that. It airs on Wednesdays, not on Thursdays, which everyone thinks that every show-to-watch must be on, but on boring Wednesdays. And that is why I love it. It kind of prepares me for the rest of the shows that will be aired later days.
And now the season is over, Modern Family went away with a perfect finale to suit its glory.

And Now Special Saturdays too...

Fringe - s03e10 - The Firefly

I'm not one of those who are worried about Fringe being on Fridays now, because Fringe is one of the few Sci-Fi shows that people are interested in and, of course, when you have J.J.Abrams for a creater/producer there shouldn't be any second doubts.(Except Undercovers, that was an understated fail from the first 15 minutes.)

As for this Friday's episode, I must say it was one of the very heavy ones. First the book to Olivia's home from Peter, If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him! by Shelfdon B. Kopp. At first me and my brother thought that might be some kind of message from the other universe for the other Olivia, that was meant to be sent before but never thought that it was for the other Olivia from Peter, but as for the revised Olivia that came back to find the guy she liked has been dating her for 2 months that she knows nothing about, she took it well enough. 

Then there is the nameskae of the episode, the firefly story... I can't say I agree with the logic of the Observer but hey! who am I to question him?... I absolutely never thought that the girl from the jewelry store was the girl in the story... For one horrible second I thought she might be Olivia and forgot it right away. 

And as a closing note if the Observers think that Walter has changed that he won't save Peter no matter hat, well they news to hear... I have the utmost trust in Walter that he will not become who he feared he would...
I wonder if there will be anything about Peter drinking the non-milk and maybe him remembering somethings that he didn't even know, he knew. We will see...

 I can't believe I almost forgot! What brilliant casting this episode was... I mean casting crazy Doc Emmett Brown from Back to the Future Trilogy in a time travel episode... That was a great way to honor Christopher Loyd... Absolutely genius!.. And man was he great... Didn't loose a thing despite his old age, 73, and they indeed made a great team our very own Walter, John Noble, who I recently learned is 63 years old... He seems much older in the show.

And not to forget, the Fringe icons during the show spelled 'UNITES'... Not sure I get this one...

Special Friday... .

Well I don't know where to start...
This week's episodes were all awesome in their own way..

Let's start: (Caution! Contains serious SPOILERS! Carry on warned...)

This show never disappoints! Now the character building is over the plot is never dull... Besides our main group Chang seems to be making a great effort on an in and I can't believe this but he has Jeff on his side! There really is not one single moment that I can point out and leave the rest.Every moment is not to be missed... But did Sherly's husband seem familiar to you?.. Oh yes he is the very Theo Huxtable from the Bill Crosby Show. He really has grown and I must say he  fit like a glove to the show, kudos to Malcolm-Jamal Warner.

To tell the truth this episode was for me to test whether to continues watching or abandon it and I think I need to see a couple of more episodes to determine that. I kinda liked this episode but it was just that an episode, there doesn't seem to be a plot in overall... Are we just stalling time untill Todd and Asha get together? Is that it? The beginning of the episode may be the best of the whole show. Gupta's dance and song was hilarious!! But what needs to be said here is how great Madhuri's (Anisha Nagarajan) voice is. How on earth does she loose the accent when she sings is beyond me...
On a side note, did you know that Outsourced is made from the movie Outsourced (2006) ?

The Office - s07e13 - The Ultimatum
Ah what can I say about Michael Scott... A man who thinks the only person who can convince him is himself and goes as far to make two videos for himself, one for a happy scenario and one for a sad scenario to watch later, to placate himself in either stiations... No there are no words... It really kills me to know that he won't be in the show after a few episodes.. Producer Paul Leiberstein, who is actually Toby on the show, announced that, Steve Carell will leave the show before the season finale, to make the finale not about Michael Scott but about an office without it's manager...
And also announced that Ricky Gervais will appear on The Office (US) but the producers claim that 'if you blink, you'll miss'... But still I really want to see what he will make of his cameo... Link 
Carell's and Gervais' little banter at the Golden Globes last Sunday was incredibly tasteful and funny! I can't say that for Gervais' speaches for the rest of the night since he bombed everyone with his snarky little comments and judgements.

Oh by the way, you don't want to miss these... Not only Dewight but Jim and Michael bobble heads!

My favorite quote was when Dwight takes Daryl and Andy to a Strip club for lunch break:
Daryl: "The day shift at a strip club? On a Monday? You can't unsee that."

Big Bang is Big Bang as always... I leave it always to the last because if the other shows are not up to my expectations, Big Bang always delivers... But one thing that I couldn't really understand was, why was all of our characters were on the same seminar at the convention? They're areas all different, well maybe not Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Raj's but Amy' and Bernadet's are not quite same materials as the others...
Sheldon's placing people was amazing but not as amazing(!) as Howard and Bernadet's singing in the car with poor Raj at the back seat... 
Anyway I hope you enjoyed it too and for Leonard and Penny fans, I definitely think there will be more of them together on the later episodes...

I haven't watched the new Fringe yet, so more on that later today...
