Really Good Two Season Series

The world knows quite few television series that have only lasted for few seasons, but have made a lasting impression on their audiences. We may never find out the reasons why these shows were given the ax or simply fizzled out due to story limitation or actors’ failure to build synergy. Whatever the case may be, these shows have not been extended and their fans have been left looking for answers and hoping that someday there will be more. Let’s mention few of those shows. If you aren’t familiar with them you might even find them appealing and look them up.

Enlightened

The show only lasted two seasons and won praise from the audience – at least from those who were watching it. The show was so decent that its lead actress Laura Dern won the 2012 Golden Globe Award for best actress in a television series. Despite that, in the financially cruel world of American television series low ratings are low ratings and any show will get cancelled. Enlightened is about a “woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown,” according to its tagline. Following a host of subsequent disappointments in life, Amy Jellicoe goes to a spiritual retreat and comes back refreshed and with a new perspective on life. While her old habits and self-destructive temper have not been thoroughly expunged, Jellicoe tries her best to help her ex husband get back on track in his own life.

Freaks and Geeks

This is one of the best television series that catered to the teen and adolescent audiences. Technically, it is a one-season show, and shouldn’t be on the list, but that makes it even more appealing because in that one season, Freaks and Geeks managed to win the hearts of millions of viewers. The plot is set in a Detroit suburb and follows a cast of characters, who owing to their style and preferences (in music, attire, mood, etc.), are classified as freaks or geeks. The show makes it apparent how thin the line between the various clicks is, as some of the characters cross show both freaks and geeks tendencies. Freaks and Geeks featured now famous actors such as James Franco, Seth Rogen, Linda Cardellini and Jason Segel. It’s hard to tell whether the show propelled them to the spotlight and subsequent acting arrangement, but the show did make a splash. Unfortunately, it was cancelled only because it couldn’t get a better schedule that would avail it to its targeted audience.

Westworld

The show is a remake of the 1973 film with the same title and pretty much a similar premise. The 2016 remake features a theme park that is inhabited by androids that are fitted with an impeccable cognitive reasoning that enables them to interact as real human beings between each other and with flesh-and-blood human beings. The latter are present in Westworld in pursuit of a life’s adventure, having paid lots of money to be able to interact with the androids in whatever way they want. The plot of Westworld is that the theme park has a story-line of its own, which is not fixed, and can take many different twists and turns, including saloon fights, online gambling at www.slotswise.com and much more. The Westworld remake had one season, to the audience’s critical acclaim, and will include another season in 2018, which makes it a two-season series. We believe that it will stop at the second season, because, what will there be once the robots have woken up, a robot takeover and an ensuing apocalypse?

Movies to See in 2019

From a litany of truly amazing movie titles slated for release in 2019 we want to point you to the ones that seem to have all the bearings that will keep us all well entertained. With so many movies coming out each year not all will be worth your time and money, so check out our short list with some of the Movies to See in 2019.

The New Mutants

The trailer starts in a hospital ward where a psychological test is being conducted on a subject that seems either profoundly disturbed or in possession of an uncanny ability with ravaging consequences. It may seem both, but the plot leans more towards the second, as The New Mutants plays on the fantastic notion of humans living among us who are in control (or not) of elemental matter and antimatter.  

Fans of the horror genre will feel at home with the moldy-white and grey hues of the interior, as the movie’s gloomish ambiance mixes well with the many unknowns surrounding the characters. The trailer has a foretelling of a plot in which personal stories will eventually intertwine and clash before ripping the story asunder.

But for those who are lost in between the meanings and are asking, is this a horror movie, is it an X-men spinoff, the answer is, it will be both. The inspiration for The New Mutants comes from the Demon Bear Saga, a comic that has a cult following among comic book lovers and is connected to the X-men dynasty. So, definitely, looking forward to this one.

Hellboy 2

You don’t have to see the trailer to know that this is going to be an excellent continuation of the Hellboy franchise. Honestly, it will be very difficult for anyone to mess up a movie that did so well and became a favorite to the fans of the comic-book movie genre and those who just enjoy a good flick. Like the first Hellboy, the second installment takes places in the underworld and above. All sorts of creatures, cast to a superb effect, will fill this movie with adrenaline, witty quips and a captivating storyline.

What makes Hellboy 2 amazing is the unconventionality of the premise, judging by comic book movie standards. Among other movies in this genre (countless others) and Hellboy are many points of separation. Hellboy the movie looks, behaves and feels like a comic book flick, but has a lot more to it. Something reminds of The Shadow (1994) which was a low-key action movie revolving around the supernatural abilities of a superhero. So, put this one on your list – Hellboy 2 will have movie-goers in awe with spectacular effects and action-packed scenes.

Truth or Dare

To wrap the list, one teenage horror flick will have you shaken and laugh at the tongue-in-cheek jokes. This one plays on the idea that carries the premise of the Final Destination feature film series: if you think it, it will happen. A clique of teenagers is doing what all teenagers do – dealing with the hormones, partying and looking for trouble. But, there is something lurking in the air causing one by one to perish in freak accidents. While there are scenes that will gross you out, like necks being snapped and people being cornered into their assured and gruesome death, Truth or Dare will not leave you disturbed for the days to come. And you are not going to look under the bed or repeat a mantra to counter a thought you had about whatever that may invite an event like in the movie. No worries. That’s why we have Truth or Dare on the list of Movies to See in 2019 – it will have you entertained and on your seat’s edge at the same time.
