Was Siehst du?

[dropcap style=”dark”]I[/dropcap]’m so big on movies and tv series and lately I have been getting my high on beides. Sadly though I have been totally disappointed. Meine Lehrerin sagt wir mussen fern auf deutsch sehen but that’s one tip I’m not taking. Actors like Morgan Freeman, Samuel Jackson, Sean Connery etc have such exceptional voices. No way am I listening to someone else voice them.

So, series I’ve been watching?

Person Of Interest: I totally dig Jim C ever since Count Of Monte Cristo and he was amazing in Passion Of The Christ. Sure I really haven’t followed his career but he was obviously the best choice to play John. His expressionless look in the face of danger, his smooth moves, the way he keeps his lips when he is impressed with someone. That suit??? Need I say more. Harold on the other hand makes geek sexy. Shaw? A woman I would totally play. Sure there are a few crappy scenes and episodes but I truly love this series and like how its playing out.

The 100: the jury still out on this and it’s chucked down as one of the crappy series I watch. Octavia though is surely surprising me. She goes from being a spoilt brat to a quick study survivor and in the situations she finds herself in for the love of Lincoln, she’s total kickass.

Grimm: I’m a great fan of the brothers Grimm so when I first started watching this one, I was excited. A 21st century Grimm tale….brilliant. Monroe and Rosalie are actually my fave characters. Trubel of course was a great addition and I was quite sad to see her leave…hope she returns in a future season. Luckily,I don’t expect much from this one so when an episode turns out really good, it’s joyful hehe.

Resurrection: i do not for any reason watch Omar Epps. Don’t ask me why, i just do not. Which seems quite understandable with this series. Apparently it was first produced in France but was a huge flop. Now this American version is obviously better than the french but Epps acting here is just so pathetic. The storyline is definitely good though.

Constantine: dark art practices. Need I say mehr? I liked the Keanu Reeves movie a lot even though I felt it could have ended another way. This series though is nicht so schlecht. Its always fun to see how he handles each case.

Walking Dead: this needs no explanation whatsover. The series totally rocks big time and I get so upset when the producers take a middle season break. Keeping a girl in bloody suspence.

Once Upon A Time: ahhh yes the crappy series I got attached to. Who doesn’t love a fairy tale story indeed. From Emma realising the great powers she’s got to Gold aka Rumpelstiltskin going from hero to zero in a carousel method. I do like how they add in fairy tales we are familiar with. And the inclusion of Frozen wasn’t so bad at all.

Elementary/Sherlock: i actually like the British version better. Hmmm probably cos i get to soak in the accent with a warm blanket and einen tasse kakao….who knows.

Gotham: i only saw 3 episodes of this but i really like it. Aside from the fact that the characters got more than a tad bit mixed up but it’s still a cool series. Jada Pinkett may be putting a good game under her belt with this one.

Defiance: this started out really really bad but managed to get better. Still not worth the trouble but if you get bored and feel the need to see aliens living among humans in a futuristic America, then this is your high.

Marvel Agents Of Shield: ok i’m sooooooo into comic books and movie versions….ghost rider was so bad thoughh..but i’m totally partial to comic book movies and would watch them regardless of the critics’ negative reviews. It would be cool to see Phil in a recent marvel movie and hear what the explanation would be. I can very well imagine Stark with his wise cracks. However, pairing May up the the traitor (totally forgot his name) was stupid. Calvary could have done vety well with no office romance methinks.

Stayed glued for the next part of this post!!!! Have a good day Leute and enjoy the week before christmas. We have our Tanenbaum all set up….just the lights left to add. We are totally looking forward to Christmas. Did you know Germany celebrates Christmas on the 24th?

    I don’t really know why I really dislike walking dead, after resident evil, I haven’t seen any zombie movie or the likes of it. Grimm I totally love, once upon a time next plssssss, saw few episodes cos of my kid sis who is so into it. Agent of shield haaa too much fiction, yet to see defiance, hope to like it. Best of week babe!

    • Walking dead is the best zombie series to happen to television!!!! Yeah ouat is a bit too crappy but im a die hard fairy tale fan and would watch it regardless of the stupidity. Agents of shield is nothing without too much fiction!!! Im not so into defiance but lemme not spoil your mind. If u do get to see it, lemme know what you think.
      Enjoy your week!

  • Dear Lehrerin, could you please help your studentin with ideas of Deutsch TV programmes? I’m thinking it should help with my learning.
    Don’t really watch TV for some reason, except for the good wife, the Apprentice (UK) and some documentaries from time to time, so I don’t recognise a lot of the shows. Gonna start testing them out tho. Thanks for the reviews!

    • That, ich habe keine ahnung o. Lol i do not watch german tv. You can listen to the radio, read the zeitung and buy german books for 10 year olds. Or buy the german translation of the shows you watch on dvds. Set movie subtitles to german. Thats what we are planning on next. To watch movies with german subtitles. You should watch how to get away with murder. I didnt include it cos ive only sern 2 episodes.

  • I am so the opposite of you when it comes to movies and series. It usually feels so time consuming LOL
    Nice blog dear
    Couldn’t resist coming to say hello when I noticed you’re also from Akwa Ibom 🙂

    • Doesnt feel….it is time consuming lol. But i dont mind. Right now i have all the time cos im still integrating but i love movies and would always create time for them.
      Thank you! Im very akwa ibom….altho a lot of ppl will disagree on the very part. Thanks for stopping by!!
      Merry christmas

  • Sherlock, Constantine and Once upon a time I have watched from your list. Didn’t finish once upon a time.,…lost interest midway. Comedies are my main thing with a little dash of supernatural to spice it up and definitely criminal/detective/law dramas.
    Merry Christmas in advance.

    • Merry christmas by the way!!!! Realised you were the anonymous!! Lol

    Girrrrrlll you better watch German TV, listen to the radio, read magazines…something. That TV really helped me. A LOT. My daughter also learned English really well. She came from Hamburg and her English was choppy. The foreign exchange coordinator told me to allow her to watch a lot of TV. I was like I’m not getting cable I’ve been fine with my DVDs. I figure a girl can only watch so many DVDs so since my sister has netflix I decided to get roku so she can watch it on tv instead of using my tablet all the time. Next thing I know she’s helping me out with English words I can’t remember!! I’m like well dag I guess TV DOES help.

    • Yeah, i know i need to. A lot of ppl swear by it. Hahahah choppy english! I had a friend’s kid over and Gorgeousness set Baby Looney Toons(nicht kable ferhsehen! Duh! Download)for her and i was so schocked that i could understand everything. So yeah, i think i just might get into that soon. Thank you so much for visiting!!! More you tube vids in deutsch please!!!
