My name is Emma Meade and I’m a TV addict.
The moody opening credits give me chills.
And it’s filmed in Ireland, so check it out if you’d like to see some lovely scenery. Alexander Skarsgard’s (Eric Northman from True Blood) brother plays Floki. What surprised me while watching Vikings is the position of women in their society. They had a lot more power and freedom than anywhere else in the world at the time. Lagertha, the renowned shieldmaiden is admirable. She’s a formidable leader and warrior.
I came late to this show, tuning in now and again to an episode of this post-apocalyptic programme. I think it kept me going when I was missing The Walking Dead. The most intriguing relationship for me was Miles Matheson and Sebastian (Bass) Monroe‘s. Of course just as I was getting into this show, I found out it has been cancelled. 😦
I watched some of the first series of the UK Version years and years ago. I can’t remember why I didn’t stick with it but when I found out about the US remake, I thought I’d give it a go. Shameless is hilarious, disturbing and heartbreaking at times.
One of my favourite new shows. I’m a couple of years late coming to the party but Kerry Washington rocks as Olivia Pope and I enjoy the rest of her team also. It’s probably the show my friends, sisters and I discuss the most these days. The president is played by Tony Goldwyn who was Patrick Swayze’s best friend and the bad dude in Ghost. Remember him?
Interesting premise. Almost a century after a nuclear disaster made Earth uninhabitable, the residents of the Ark, a space station that orbits the planet, find themselves running out of air. They send 100 teenage criminals to the ground to see if they can survive. I love post-apocalyptic dramas. I wasn’t expecting much from this show – it’s on the CW and has a set of typically good-looking “teens” and insta-love going on, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised. It’s a lot more violent, gritty and graphic than I would have expected. So far, so enjoyable.
I’m almost up-to-date with season 4. Wow. Epic. I didn’t think I was much of a fantasy person. While I loved The Lord of the Rings movies, I can’t say I’ve ventured into reading fantasy books, but after watching Game of Thrones, I need to give this genre a proper go. And Ser Jorah Mormant played by the sexy Iain Glen is always a treat.
