I’ve always been a fan of many American TV series and just recently, my favorite is Walking Dead.
What I like about this one is it is based on a comics with the same title. Only few TV series are based on books or comics, so it’s interesting to see the difference from the comics on the TV. Plus the fact that, I’m having weird ideas and starting to fashion a goal that I’ll be able to surpass the Zombie Apocalypse if it will ever happen in reality (Of course, let’s wish that it will not!)
The Walking Dead is centered around Rick Grimes, a small-town police officer, his family, and a number of other survivors who have banded together in order to survive after the world is overrun with zombies or as the walking dead or Walkers. As the series progresses, the characters become more developed, and their personalities shift under the stress of a zombie apocalypse. Fighting growing despair — and sometimes each other — the group searches for a secure location which they can finally call home. In this story, I specifically like Daryl Dixon, ahh he’s such a character.
This August will be the continuation of the series, now on it’s 3rd season. I heard there are new characters that’s coming. I’m so excited.
Going back to my elementary and highschool days, my weakness was Charmed. It was so popular that time that I even created my email address with “charmed”.
It was about the three Halliwell sisters who discovered that they are descendents of a line of female witches. Each has a special ability (stopping time, moving objects, seeing the future), and they can also combine their abilities into the “Power of Three” to fight demons, warlocks, and other evils.I think, Alyssa Milano got really famous because of this series.
Originally, the cast was Shannen Doherty as Prue, Holly Marie Combs as Piper and Alyssa Milano as Phoebe, but then I think they had some problems regarding Shannen so they replaced her with Rose McGowan as Paige. Even though there were some changes, the TV series was still supported by fans and it aired from October 7, 1998, until May 21, 2006. That was for almost 8 years!
Unlike the two TV series which already had so many episodes, my other favorite was Pushing Daisies
I found myself captivated by this pilot than any of the others (suprise!). No matter how whimsical or cutsy the world of PD is, it is somewhere to get away for an hour. There are maybe a handful of shows that have as much fun on screen as this… It is something new, definitely bold, and clever. Too bad because it was cut short and I was not even able to see what happened to Ned and Chuck.
The story revolves around Ned who possesses the unique talent of being able to bring the dead to life merely by touching them. However, the person may remain alive only for one minute, or else someone else dies for them. A second touch will render the person dead again, unable to be revived. Through his connections with PI Emerson Cod, Ned revives his childhood sweetheart, Chuck. The trio, aided occasionally by Olive Snook, helps solve the mysteries of various murders, whose murderer is often surprising.
What I miss about this is the wit and sweetness of Chuck and Ned, on how they tried to work with their relationship without having to touch each other. Nice huh?
There are other TV series that I really like, maybe next time I’ll write about them. So, for now, here’s my top 3, which includes: witches, zombies and magic.
