Rick and Morty


Rick and Morty exists since 2013 and it’s amazing! Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon–the same writing genius that gave us Community–the series follows a young high school student called Morty, and his drunken, irresponsible, probably clinically depressed grandfather in their intergalactic (interdimensional?) adventures.

Watch the preview. If you like it you are going to love the series:

BoJack Horseman [2014 – ]

Brilliant animated series with an all star team of actors: Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Amy Sedaris (Bob’s Burgers), Alison Brie (Community).
It’s a Netflix series and I have to say they are doing a great job with the shows I’ve seen from them so far.
This one is about a washed up actor from the nineties that happens to be a horse, but that’s incidental.

I’m loving it.

Here are the opening credits:

True Detective

True Detective Poster

I’ve mentioned this show here before but only now were we able to finish watching the whole first season.
It’s a crime drama series with a clear nod to Lovecraft’s Cthulhu myths and it explores certain moments in the lives of two detectives who are investigating the horrific murders of several young women.

It’s intimate, slow paced, intricate, and it has a beauty to it that convinces you that the people involved in it truly loved what they were doing.

Now I want to watch it again…

Freaks and Geeks [TV Series 1999]

Freaks and Geeks We’ve been re-watching this amazing series in the last few weeks.
Funny how, even though it’s set in 1980 in some small town in the US, it’s really close to my experience as a teen in high school in Portugal around 1995.
It’s brilliantly written, and the actors do a great job in bringing the characters to life.
The series was canceled after only 12 of the original 18 episodes were aired. We still have one more episode to go and I’m already sad to know they will be gone soon. Maybe in 15 years I can watch it again and love it all over again.

If you don’t know the series, watch the (annoying) trailer:

Brief note about the finale of Breaking Bad

breaking bad

Last year I talked about how much I liked Breaking Bad. Since the beginning of the show five years ago, there was never a disappointing moment. Now it’s over and I just wanted to say: Well done!

This is one of the BEST SHOWS ever made for television. A cohesive piece of work with a beginning and an end that takes us through a myriad of situations and emotions that are matched by no one in the industry at this time.

Thank you for so many hours of nerve racking, nail biting, belly aching quality entertainment.
