You can tell a lot about a television show by the first episode. I can judge if I will continue watching it. I got the chance to see “How To Get Away With Murder” today and I am ecstatic! I liked it and I am excited for the next episode, I’m hooked. My favourite expression to say after every amazing tv series is, “now that’s a cliff hanger.” I know I’m behind from all the other fans but I don’t care, I care that I am given the chance to finally see it once a week which is just perfect so I have something to look forward to in the weekend.
I’m a bonafide Shondaland fanatic! 🙂
I remember when I first saw the following television shows and I know that they have a special place in my life:
- House of Cards
- Breaking Bad
- Grey’s Anatomy
- Gilmore Girls
- Walking Dead
- Prison Break
- Gossip Girl
What was your favourite television show that left you a perfect first impression?

Television shows are not real but I get so affected that Mellie Grant, yes the acting first lady in Scandal, spoiler alert coming, was raped by her father-in-law one evening before her husband run for Governor of California! Who knows, the first child could even been Fitz’s brother!!
I know sex for some people is just an ordinary pleasurable act that could not mean anything at all; but I find it sacred for only 2 consenting adults who love one another and have the right circumstance to be together. What do I mean by right? Well, ideally married for the first time unless previous spouse died then can re-marry again. It is old fashion, it is very traditional, and I may never marry at all; but that would be besides the point in this post.
It’s just that sex at the wrong scenarios is just like a pig act – messy and unacceptable for human beings. Does this mean I have found a cause that I would support? I was never raped but I don’t need to be cause it’s a total violation of rights especially a woman who 99% would not have the physical strength to stop the perpetrator. It breaks my heart for Mellie putting up a brave face ALL THE TIME to support her husband. It is not fair that no one defended her, in real life it wouldn’t be that easy.
Let us all be responsible, to be kind and righteous.

I can never get enough of beautiful cooking shows especially if it offers something pretty. Meet Rachel Khoo, a British who I first saw cooking in France and another when she’s back in England.
I love her! She is handling food delicately and she’s putting modern twist on regular dish. Her salad looks really festive and classy. Her desserts looked divine and delicious. Everything she prepares seemed easy and absolutely doable at home.
She also shops and dine to try other food. She also cook with other chefs.
Her smile and passion for food are infectious. Such a delight to watch! 🙂

I started watching Homeland right before the 3rd Season starts. I was wondering how good this series is that it continuously gets famous and win so many awards every Emmys. Finally my sissy and I give it a try and we’ve got curious and now a follower.
What’s the Top 7 appeal of this series to me?
- The story is not predictable.
- Carrie’s character is vulnerable but damn RESPECT!
- The patriotism of both Saul and Carrie is admirable, endearing, and looked very authentic.
- A man and woman can truly fall in love, despite the odds.
- Being in Dubai, it’s amusing to hear them speak Arabic every once in a while.
- Actors characters were believable.
- Every season offers a great twist that keeps it fresh and interesting.

The Blacklist is about Raymond Reddington, a criminal, who is willing to work with the FBI to catch the other big criminals like himself on the condition that he will only talk to Elizabeth Keen, a profiler. She doesn’t know why did he pick her and got notified during her first reporting day at the FBI. He said he knew her father. I think he is her father!?
I am still unsure about this show but I got to say I respect Lizzie when she stabbed Red in the neck. I sometimes like the witty remarks of Red but his motive is quite lamely delivered that I am not believing everything just yet. Finally, the mystery of the real relationship of the two characters eventually and the real identity of Lizzie’s hubby intrigued me… for now.
The next TV show that I’ll shoot is Arrow. If I made a TV show during my high school days, it will resemble the Arrow so much. I am being critical on myself because the lines were often cheesy and too good to be true. I am hooked with the luxurious privilege of the Queen’s world, Oliver’s amazing presence (voice, look, and body in that order), and that’s about it.
The Starling sounds so Gotham. I am still not buying it.

I am still watching Grey’s Anatomy. I am still not over it. I still cry almost every episode (I got a softy heart). What triggers me to talk about this today is a question in a Grey’s Anatomy Facebook page that asked: Which doctor would you want to treat you if you ended up at the Seattle Grace Hospital?
It is actually a good question because I want to say can I have almost all of them? I know they are a specialist on their own but if I do pick, here is the order:
- Dr. Derek Shepherd – I am most likely to have a brain problem anyway with all the over thinking.
- Dr. Meredith Grey – She is smart and caring. I love her character who puts her heart into all her patients almost always suicidal or selfless?
- Dr. Cristina Yang – I have a serious heart problem right now. Falling in love with a wrong man so Yang is a bad ass doctor who may try to fix my heart although on the other hand, in reality, emotion is still worked out by the brain so Shepherd is still the best choice huh!
- Dr. Miranda Bailey – Another doctor that finds reasons and heart to truly care for the patient. I think I get better fast if she’s my doctor with all the mother instinct included.
- Dr. Jackson Avery – He’s gorgeous! I could marry this guy in a heartbeat! And he owns the hospital plus he’s a smart doctor. He’s the complete package. I’d rather want to see him not as his patient but a visiting wife at work. 😉
- Dr. Owen Hunt – Because I am clumsy, he’s going to be a great help for my crazy trauma incidents and I know that he’ll always be composed and ready to treat me.
How about you?

I maybe romanticizing but why do television shows reflect my life? Is it because I search for the shows that resemble my innermost feelings and desires? I don’t like how Scandal is making its way in my fantasy. I will not compromise my moral to destroy a relationship only because I have the thing called feeling.
I once desired for my parents to break up because they fought and have forgotten how they were so in love. I feel like the smart Betty but still need to make up being an assistant until I finally have the chance to shine! And how could I not feel that life is full of magic that my sissies and I are indeed charmed for being so blessed.
I wish the next TV reality in my life is Suits and that a great Harvey Specter walked into my life and win my heart.

I heard about people saying smile when you’re talking on the phone because the person on the other line would feel it.
I also heard that smile even if you’re sad because you will be able to trick your brain that you are still happy and eventually feel better.
I personally encourage people to smile so they won’t be carrying the weight of the world’s misery.
It was nice to actually hear Jesse J, one of the judges and coaches of The Voice, repeatedly instruct her team members to smile. She demonstrated the difference too of a sound being different if you actually smile.
So ladies and gentlemen, SMILE!

I like 2 Broke Girls. In a way, I feel like so broke right now that I could relate to them.
I love the cash register at the end of every show but the real winner is their tandem and the comedic relief. I love the whole cast including Han, Sofie, Oleg, and Earl. There is something so real about all of them. It’s so cute that warm background applause comes to life whenever Sofie comes in for the first time for every episode; that’s pretty grand.
RESPECT for the whole show and the team behind it that never fails to make me laugh.
