Blindspot – Series Review


So, a lot of TV series have started airing this Fall, but the only one that really stood out for me is Blindspot which is on NBC on Monday nights. To be honest, having been largely let down by Heroes Reborn and Quantico, I had very low expectations for Blindspot. But I was so wrong. This series is a shockingly great thriller/drama/mystery series – one of it’s kind. (IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4474344/).

Would you like to watch a 40 minute thrilling action/mystery short movie every Monday? If your answer is yes, you have to watch Blindspot. It’s freaking amazing.

Blindspot airs on NBC every Monday – Probably the best new TV series this Fall

THE PLOT: (WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD)

So, there’s this bag lying around in the middle of Times Square with a tag saying “Hello” in different languages and a tag that says ” Call The FBI”. I seriously thought there was a bomb in the bag and so did the FBI bomb disposal guy think. But what’s in the bag? Boom a girl with the dragon tattoo(s). And boy is this one hot too! Guys watch out for Jamie Alexander, she’s gorgeous and hot!

So anyway, this FBI agent called Weller is pulled from southern Kentucky where he is freeing women from torture and shit. Why? Because his name is fucking tattooed all over Jane Doe’s back in size 96 bold font. Oh by the way, the girl in the duffle bag has no memory of who she is or what has happened in her life up until the Times Square bag incident because someone injected her with two much of some PTSD drug which erases bad memories and since they gave her so much, it erased all her memories. Kind of sad, right?

Jamie Alexander plays Jane Doe in Blindspot.

So anyway, since the FBI can’t find shit about this girl’s details with no fingerprint/photo/DNA match anywhere on any record they have, they just start calling her Jane Doe. Duh, right? Anyway, the tattoos apart from looking fucking cool are all bits of critical info leading to one mystery or another and have the potential of saving hundreds to millions of lives or so I inferred at the end of the first episode.

Jane Doe and Kurt Weller in action

The first episode goes from slow to mind fucking blowing, when Weller, the FBI agent with his name all over Jane Doe’s back lets a bomb explode after stripping it off its C4. Also, Jane Doe goes from a demure naked “where am I?” situation to being a fucking badass with a Navy SEAL special op training and shit as she beats the crap out of a Chinese thug and his henchmen, not to mention her sniping abilities.

Basically, in every episode, they somehow find something related to a tattoo on her body and that leads to a fucking thrilling mystery being unraveled along with Weller’s backstory and Jane Doe getting some of her memories back.

BOTTOMLINE:

Jane Doe’s tattoos are the key to solving a number of mysteries and saving plenty of lives while she tries to get her memories back and we find out about Weller’s backstory. Also,CIA tries fighting with the FBI which is kinda fun.

MY RECOMMENDATION:
If you guys watch Quantico and think it’s good (which according to me is total shit), please watch Blindspot. You will not regret it. It’s fucking amazing.

MY RATING:4.6/5 (Game of Thrones is 5.1/5 and Breaking Bad is 5/5)

I’ll do an episode review for every episode from Episode 6 onwards!

Until, later then!

Ninjas, Onions and Tears


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Moved to Tears.”

So, I happened to be at my friend’s pay and there was this gorgeous girl helping him out with the preparations.  She was cutting some vegetables for the salad and seeing how beautiful she was,  I decided to man up and go talk to her.

My bad luck,  she started cutting onions when I walked up to her and those damn onions brought tears to my eyes. My eyes got so watery that I could hardly see and I had to remove my glasses to wipe the tears off and the girl stopped curing the onions and she’s like, ” Don’t very like a girl. ” and she walked away.

I think this incident perfectly matches this prompt as that was indeed something beautiful (the girl) that brought tears to my eyes (by cutting onions).

Sleeping the Crisis Away


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “In a Crisis.”

Knowing myself whenever there is a so called crisis, I eat lots of chocolate and sleep as much as possible because, according to me, sleep is the best way to avoid these problems.

Quite obviously I am not even close to being satisfied with how I react, given that I react by sleeping twice as much as I’d do on a jolly-good day. Not to forget that sleeping postpones the crisis and never really solves it. It’s a double edged sword where both edges kill you.

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Finale : Best Tweets


Here are some of the best tweets from Game Of Thrones Season 5 Finale (read the finale recap here) :

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Finale : Recap


WARNING: This post contains spoilers about the season finale of Game of Thrones Season 5.

Here’s a quick recap of all the main characters that featured on the season finale:

1. Khaleesi
Drogon is back to the “Fuck you, mom” attitude and doesn’t move an inch when Danny tries to convince him on returning to Mereen. In search for food, poor Danny runs into another hoard of Dothraki riders. Time for her to get gang banged by another horse riding troop. Deja vu, to be honest.

This picture is an exact description of Danny and Drogon in this episode.

2. Back in Mereen
Daario, Tyrion and Jorah engage in chit chat while waiting for Khaleesi and after Misandei brings greyworm around, everyone other than Tyrion decide that Tyrion is not fit for an expedition in the wild and that he should use his experience of governing a city by staying back in Mereen. Of course, Tyrion, with his thirst for adventure, disagrees but he is put in the place by the other three. Bonus Points: Tyrion hits on Missandei by talking in Valyrian.

3. Arya Stark
Blinding performance by Arya. Oops, spoiler. So, after she steals a face from the many faced god and she kills Meryn Trant after poking his eyes out with a knife and slitting his throat, Arya runs into trouble with the many-faced god. In a random wtf magical moment, Arya loses her sight, her eyes become ghostly and she becomes blind. Creepy as hell.

4, Stannis Baratheon
Still shaking after having to burn his beloved daughter to death, problems keep piling up for Stannis. He finds his wife, who committed suicide, hanging from a tree. Then, his soldiers are dead due to flu/whatever it is. He still marches on to Winterfell where Ramsay Boton’s army slaughter Stannis and co. Briene of fucking Tarth comes around and kills Stannis for having murdered Renly with blood magic.

5. Sansa Stark
Poor old Sansa still has that Stark luck of being so close but not close enough. As soon as she lights the candle in the tower, Briene turns away and leaves without noticing it. Anyway, after Theon mans up and pushes Ramsay’s whore over, out of the blue, Theon jumps off the wall from Winterfell hand-in-hand with Sansa Stark.

6. Jamie Lannister
Jamie has a first of its kind, father-daughter moment with Myrcella who then starts bleeding out from her nose and dies, thanks to the deadly kiss by Oberyn’s widow/gf. Fucking sandsnakes.

7. Cersei Lannister
Cersei finally admits her sins and begs for mercy. As an atonement, she is made to walk naked through the entire city all the way from the temple to the King’s castle. Extremely sad image as people though, shit, stones, what not on her and verbally abuse her in every possible way, every fan has done to her over the five seasons. I hate Cersei, but even I hated scene. Went a bit too far. On the bright side, the Mountain is back and ready to kill anyone she asks for. BONUS POINT: Cersei gets a new haircut.
8. JON SNOWWWWWWWWWWWW
He really doesn’t know anything. After being fooled by Ollie into believing his uncle might be still alive, Jon snow is stabbed by the bunch of rebels in the night watch and Ollie stabs him in the heart to deal the final blow as Jon bleeds out and dies. R.I.P Jon Snow. (Kit Harrington said that Jon is dead and he isn’t coming back, so yeah. Time to cry.)

BOTTOMLINE: RIP Jon Snow, Stannis Baratheon, Myrcella Lannister. For everyone else who died in this episode, good luck finding another job. Tyrion rules Mereen, Cersei walks naked through Westeros in her walk of shame, Khaleesi and the Dothraki horse Riders- Season 2, Sansa and theon jump off the wall (did they break their legs or what) and Arya goes blind. Too much of a depressing season 5. have to wait for another year to get more depressing episodes.
