Karma Is Great: The World Smiles To Friday Night Lights

As Friday night lights came to an end the blow of having FNL no more is softened by the joyous news of a FNL movie coming up. I have to tell you this is the best news ever. According to Peter Berg the man behind the movie/tv show/movie the movie will include Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton it’s not clear if all the cast member will be there but I really hope so.

This show was a masterpiece of television and it is a shame it only got 5 seasons, the ratings were low and that is sad in a world where other story lacking shows make it further.What show doesn’t seem to amaze for 5 seasons? most die creatively by the 4th season

All bitterness for the greatest show on TV aside I’ll be looking forward to the movie which apparently will pick up where the season finale left off. Finally great TV gets justice.

The Vampire Diaries :Spoilers are here

Well, Season 3 spoliers are here courtesy of tvfanatic.com and they come in a great time where my patience is running thin. I need my TVD fix and I want it NOW.

Big question answered “who will be Elena and Jeremy’s guardian now that aunt Jenna is dead?” Well, due to a small time jump Elena will be celebrating  her 18 birthday and so can be a guardian for Jeremy. Another thing to make it worth the wait is this season will finally be the season where we will see A LOT of Elena and Damon together, according to producer Julie Plec Elena will be facing a big problem with her undeniable attraction to Damon while she is trying to find Stephan.

Stephan will be busy being a bad ass and apparently playing with an old acquaintance of him vampire Rebecca who is more than excited to see the “Ripper” back. On other news tyler and Caroline will be breaking new ground in their friendship as their families feud and the whole”matt is ok with Caroline being a vampire ” thing needs to play out.

I don’t know about you but it sounds like a hell of a season, but then again did The Vampire Diaries staff and crew ever disappoint us ? the answer is hell no!

I am so giddy right now I have to say it : yepee Delena 4 ever

Downton Abbey: Storytelling As It Should Be

I will start with a confession:I am a sucker for period dramas. As I was searching Metacritic.com for worthy shows i stumbled on this show rated an impressive  92  so i decided to check out this “Masterpiece” called Downton Abbey on ITV originally aired in 201o.

I am glad I did, after watching season one with it’s engrossing seven episodes my perception of what tv should be has changed. The show is one of the best shows I have seen in years, it’s like the British Mad Men if you will.  It tells the story of an estate owner in a fictional village “Downton Abbey“,his family and servants during the time of King George V two years prior to the first world war. Their lives intertwined yet seperate , you are transferred through the upstairs world of the Duke and Duchess of Grantham and their three adult  daughters where the glamour,the endless search of a husband and dinners takes place and whose lives are drastically altered by the sinking of the Titanic and then the downstairs world of the servants  where there is power play and conspiracy.

This show does everything right, the characters are very interesting and the storytelling is flawless. If you have extra time this summer check it out and satisfaction guaranteed. It does not have the stiff rigid approach to a period drama, it is very well rounded and flat out AMAZING! season 2 to be aired later in 2011.

Hollywood Studios Says No to Jordan’s New Movie Rights Policy

Though living in a 3rd world country has its “perks” it also means that I have to watch movies later than the rest of the universe and most times are censored so no nudity or graphic love scenes. Recently it has been weirdly clear that cinemas in Jordan are not offering any new movies even though it is the summer and watching movies in the movie theaters is a favorite pass time  in Jordan . Then prime cinemas located in Jordan issued an explanation to this mystery, Hollywood Studios decided to boycott Jordan and refuses to send anymore movies ….OUCH! but why?!

Well as Prime Cinemas website declares that this attitude from Hollywood Studios and it’s producers comes as a reaction to the new movie rights customs fee sanctioned by Jordan which is apparently one of  a kind not sanctioned by any other country. Hollywood and it’s production companies refused to pay the fees and to top that decided to boycott Jordan by not sending anymore movies until the issue is resolved.

I don’t know what will happen next or who will cave first but what i know is this: In a country where going to the mall and watching a movie is the main pass time of the summer people will rip each other’s heads off out of boredom if this issue is not resolved.
