So here we are on post five of my fandom posts. And with each post I write, I realize how I must sound absolutely boring with all the books and TV shows I spend my time watching. Pretty much Oh Well. So here is the next few on my list. I hope you enjoy it and that it strikes your interest in some of these things. We started watching it when it first came out and faithfully continued even through the horrible seasons.
So one day people are just dropped out in Washington. They had disappeared from all throughout time. None of them remember what happened in the years that they were gone or where they had traveled to.
Tom Baldwin and Diana Skouris are the two from Homeland Security that are in charge of figuring this out and monitoring the The show is really interesting as it deals with a lot of different issues.
First of all, to those taken it feels as if no time has passed, but they have to come to grips that loved ones may have moved on or died. For many years have passed and everything is completely different, technology, social cues, etc. Plus they have to deal with all the questions about what happened and who they are. This makes things much harder on Baldwin and Skouris, as not all use their powers for good.
But once I had some free time I decided why not try this show out? And burned through the episodes. So the show is about a family that moves to Dillon, Texas. Coach Eric Taylor is the new football coach for the team, his wife becomes the guidance counselor, and they brought their daughter Juliet vegetarian and a culture snob. Coach Taylor also ends up with his star quarterback, Jason, getting injured and paralyzed. He has everyone judging him and giving him advice. It can be hard. He gets through that, but faces more issues in the years to come.
Besides the awesome football, the great thing about this show is that it deals with real life issues. Sometimes you watch the angst and you are ah, too realistic. So first of all Coach Taylor is awesome. He becomes a father figure to all the boys on the team and helps them as much as he possibly can.
He has a great no-nonsense attitude, getting the job done. I just love him. Then we have Matt Saracen. The sweetest boy ever. His father is in the military and his mom ran away. His grandma is supposed to be raising him, but in actually, he takes care of her as dementia is settling in.
He goes to school and gets great grades, works after-school to pay for the bills, and strives hard to be a great quarterback for the football team. And then we have his relationship with Julie Taylor. He first tries all he can to be nice and be seen as more than just a football freak. And he always lets Julie run the show. He just so romantic. He is not cute, untalented, and stupid.
I mean the things he says. Plus he likes getting it on with as many ladies as possible. How could you ever trade Matt in for anyone? She comes to her senses and gets back with him.
And then we have Tim Riggins. He is just so dreamy! First of all, look at him. Taylor Kitsch is a great looking man and a great actor. Wolverine, barely having any screentime. And his other movies bombed, which is such a shame.
So at first Tim appears to be just a dumb jock, but there is a whole lot more to him than meets the eye. He may not be book smart but he is one savy buisnessman. He knows how to create a proposal, bargain, etc. Anything physical he can do it.
And to top that all off, he has perseverance. Once he gets the drive to do something, nothing will get in his way. And then we have his sweet heart. Tim is the most caring guy ever! He is great with mentoring kids, helping people out with their problems, and never ever takes advantage of a situation. What can I say? The first season is probably the best of all. No explanation, no nothing. Otherwise this show is awesome! And you should definitely give it a view.
Game of Thrones There is no middle ground. So I did not want to watch this series when it first came out. I knew of George R. But I should have realized that it was only a matter of time until it happened. So it all started after I finished my finals this past spring. I had free time and saw the DVD for season 1 in the library. Go here to see which one you should live in. In fact my roommate she was already a fan and I just blew through the first season.
