Jungle Shuffle (2014)
Save the jungle, get the girl
Yes, the same old current problem. Get the people out of my forest, this time animals get together, work and vanish the cruel people. In the meantime the main character, Manu has his own personal objective to reach, to prove he's worthy of a king's daughter.
It's a journey of making new friends from strangers or from villains as in the end the main character gets what he has been fighting for. This proves this animation wants to be easy in combining many over-used themes (the outcast, the problem maker, the mad scientist, have a passion, work hard and make it, you are special) into a children's adventure. Does it work? It's enjoyable but it doesn't have anything special.
Don't know what you were expecting but
Everyone said Big A was going to be revealed this episode. But seriously, did you really believe that? This show has two more seasons to go, so yeah, that's that.
Not having too high expectations, this episode is a good standard PLL episode. As all the other finales, nothing much comes out. A is still a mystery to the viewers. But the most expected moment is not too far off. The list of A 'suspects' is now even narrower.
Apart from a few technical holes, the episode is actually enjoyable. Veronica Hastings had memorable appearances throughout the series and especially this season. She does not let the girls down this time either. The same thing applies to Caleb. "We're all in this together," everybody seems to say.
Hopefully, by the time the girls are set free, they themselves will graduate happily ever after and go to college and finish this dramatic senior year that has been lasting way too long. Seriously, are they still in 12th grade? And it's been like three years already.
Discovering new things
This season we've found another side of Cho. He met Summer, who at some point even compared him to a puppy. Now we discover new information about boss' past, Teresa Lisbon. Her first serious romantic relationship. She's handling the situation alright, although Jane keeps making fun of her.
Wayne changed as well, loving his new role as a father. Van Pelt is a little sceptic about this whole idea, seems not to be understanding. But she seldom stops being the tough towering woman.
We visit another California beach. Sun. Crabs. Waves. And... homicide, of course. What was more interesting? Past. Coins. Ships. Stories.
Revolution: Dead Man Walking (2013)
Trouble in Paradise
But wait, that place is far from paradise. We have two fronts - Neville and the Texas town.
What happens in Texas. Using the LOST technique of going back in time, new details are being revealed. We learn why Bass had become such a cruel man. Was it a good reason? That's up for you to decide. Nevertheless, he's always been a good soldier. A new main character this season - Charlie's grandpa. Have you ever wondered if there was anything weird about him? As expected, there is. "They (patriots) know everything," it is said in the series. But do they?
I'd like to live in that world. No technology. No one spying through technology. What a dream! But there're still spies. Human spies. But humans are unpredictable. Can't ever tell what they'll decide to do after all. Like Rachel Matheson case.
Watching the first episodes of this season (second season), I couldn't help noticing certain similarities to Falling Skies. Too many, maybe. And now we go to the patriots' camp of turning people to robots. See what I mean? In Falling Skies, they were harnessed by aliens. Still, they were transformed. And that's the whole point, right? But can you release humans from this spell? Can you reverse the transformation? In FS you could. What about now? Ex-major Neville is trying. Trying to 'save' his son. Will he succeed?
Oz: Family Bizness (1998)
Family Bizness, O'Reily Business
Simply cannot understand why this episode has such a bad rating. Ryan O'Reily going to a very different period of his life. Is it even real? And what does he do about it? Well, he does what he knows best.
The just friendship relationship is born. Bad news, but just friends. Everything seems to fall apart in your life. What do you want? Who do you want? Or you just want out of it, somehow? Sorry, can't have that here.
As usual, the Augustus Hill introduction makes its point. Are we the products of a broken home? Or do we cause the broken home? The answer is in the episode. Some interpretation of it, at least.
Covert Affairs: Hang Wire (2013)
And the ending blew it
Fine. Good. Very good. Annie Walker in action. Bonding with Teo? Maybe. But doing something, fighting for the truth, for the right. At least that's what the show has made us believe. That Annie is on "the good" side, whereas Henry Wilcox is the evil side.
Speaking of the truth, there comes the Colder problem. Is he, is he not? For now, it seems more likely that he's not evil. But, nothing is ever certain. We saw a few episodes back a flash from the future where Annie was down and Colder seemed to have put her there. So?
And Henry keeps saving Annie. In almost every episode now. It's clear that he wants something with her, or from her. Somehow she'd been helping him all along even without her knowing it.
Going back, the ending of this episode was... come on! Is it for real? If yes, huge disappointment. Everything was too good, something had to happen. Something like this.
Rookie Blue: Under Fire (2013)
And the action is back!
After some weaker episodes "Under Fire" came. You don't know what's really happening. Both the plot and the characters. And when you find out you're surprised. Characters. Yes Gail! Yes! She ended up being my 2nd favorite character (after Collins). Sam reminds me of the old Sam but he may have waken up a bit too late. I like Traci and Peck - developing something together. Dov. Poor Dov. But even if the ex showed up... Chloe won't want him back, will she? Callaghan's become in time a likable character. I appreciate his appearing on the show. A lot.
Plot. All started because of a certain character. But only at the end do you find this out. There's no actual pause. Just action. Calls. Fire shots. Police squads. Blood. Kisses. Tension. And the story goes on. Will everything come out? We don't know. Yet. Just... Oliver. An usual morning. Interesting unusual afternoon. How will the night look?
Great, believable animation!
Exhilaration, joy, safety or fear, terror, worry just a bit of imagination and not only watch or listen, but feel, be there, look around, touch, smell, hear, sense. Open up for a few moments and think you're Varmints, think of that world, think of its encounter. Does it seem familiar? Hell yes! Urbanization, pollution, death - we people have recently started to face the negative effects of these factors. This sad animation shows us how it all will come to an end. Spend about twenty minutes of your life all eyes and ears. Your eyes will be delighted by some animated scenes not quite different from our own world. Picture it as one of our great cities, such as New York or Tokyo. Initially, it was just a green grass land, filled with trees, flowers and other life forms. Enjoying the scenery, smiling at the sun, being happy - you were there too. Then, suddenly, it all changed. The sun wasn't there any more, your tree began to die, your plant dried. You were scared. Therefore, you believed that the new world was a better one and you sought salvation in it. Integrating, adapting, transforming - you did that and thought it was the right way for creating a perfect society. Limitless, not just to yourself, you also started to do things, to change the environment and the planet itself. Cutting trees, exploiting countless resources, building blast furnaces and concrete walls you started to pollute, to destroy. But for how long? This animation depicts a possible ending of this dark era. Furthermore, your ears will be astonished by the amazing, powerful, hearty soundtrack. This will be the special feature that will lead you through the contrasting feelings, give you hope or may encourage you to shed a tear when your friend fades away. At 24 minutes, the animation not only offers an insight into the effects of urbanization, but also sends out many interpretations. I wish, for instance, that the filmmakers had emphasized more the idea of socializing. In the fast 21st century, people like to communicate, to share impressions, to work in teams. Overpassing the fact that the animation doesn't include any lines, the main character - Varmints is some kind of anti-social creature. For example, while all the others go to work, walk or just get together, he just stays in his flat or down in the street with his plant friend. Only in the end, does it seem to be approaching another creature. But then, for what reason? The filmmakers gave no chance to those life forms, no chance for friendship or for love. We, humans, still have that. It's up to us to decide our future, until it's not too late.
Season 1 very good, the rest - don't even bother!
I liked so much season 1, the story, the characters, everything. It was one of those shows, with great potential that knows how to make a viewer be eager for the next episode and, what's most important, how to make someone live at maximum what happens in almost each episode. That was season one, with great episodes such as Company Man or Five Years Gone. That was season 1. The only thing that I felt that could have been a little improved was the finale. And to mention that I hated the idea of Peter and Claire being related, come on, they had chemistry, you can't deny that. But I had almost put up with it, hoping that the show will keep me focused and interested in the next seasons too. But no! That wasn't it. Season 2 was okay I think, of course you can't compare it with season 1, but it kept me going, watching all 11 seasons, at least that. However, after 7 episodes of season 3, I couldn't stand it any more. What's all this nonsense? In season 1 I had favorite characters that I liked, that I 'cared for'. And now all that is changed. Either they disappear or they are completely changed. They're not the same. Their personalities are different. It makes you wonder why, why did the writers come up with this? Wonderful story, high-potentially season 1 just for this? So that all your hopes will be gone after a while? For what?
I believe season 1 is worth watching, good action, believable characters, mystery, a great villain, emotions, hope... If you should want to give Heroes a chance, go watch this first season. It's incredible. But please, don't bother with the rest. You won't regret it.
