Iya, nggak ada abisnya kalau ngomongin serial TV di Amerika. Asli deh. Dari dulu saya emang udah suka nonton serial TV terutama serial TV Amerika. Tapi dulu saya sih nontonnya yang terkenal2 aja macam Friends, Gossip Girl, The OC, dll dll ya kan… eh begitu pindah kesini, makin deh saya sadar kalau ternyata TV series di Amerika itu banyak banget segala macam dan rupa untuk semua selera! Apalagi rupanya awal musim gugur alias sekarang – sekarang ini tuh masanya premier serial TV. Banyak serial TV baru, banyak juga serial favorit yang kembali dengan season baru. Nah lho!
Like thousands of people on the internet, I am currently hooked to this Netflix Original Production titled “Making a Murderer”. Since its debut in the US last December, my boyfriend had told me to see it but I haven’t done so. Now that Netflix is available in Indonesia, it’s the first thing I see after I registered myself.
The thriller/mystery series is about how a secret service agent named Ethan Burke ended up in a small town called Wayward Pines in Idaho – USA. Don’t worry, this post is spoiler free 😉
Episode one started with a scene of Agent Burke woke up and found himself in a foreign setting. At first he did not remember his identity and did not know where he was. His memory came back not long after but he could not find his I.D nor cellphone. He quickly remembered that he was on a mission to find a missing colleague with a partner when they got into an ugly car crash. His partner was nowhere to be seen though. Episode one ended with a shocking discovery and left me wanting to see more episodes!
Come episode two, where I was shown moments – which seemed like clues – and got me wondering. I found myself making assumptions. Maybe he is a … Maybe they did that because …. Maybe the town is a …. But all I can do is guessing. Just when I was still making up theories, the episode ended up with a far more shocking event! :O
Now here I am, anxiously waiting for episode three. I know this series is an adaptation from a book series, but I don’t want to read the book (yet). Because I think the TV series is good enough to make me wanting for more. Oh, perhaps it’s because M. Night Shyamalan is the executive producer? So, if you’re looking for a new TV series to follow, this one’s a must see! Btw… anyone is currently following the series as well? What are your theories? let’s discuss in the comment section below… (no spoilers please!) 😉
I’m currently hooked to this TV Series called “Jane the Virgin“. It’s an American TV series, adapted from a Venezuelan telenovela called Juana la Virgen. The story revolves around Jane, a young and religious woman based in Miami, who made a promise to her grandma that she will stay virgin until she gets married. She has a steady boyfriend, a job and is working to finish her teaching degree so everything seems perfectly mapped out. But of course there’s no telenovela without drama… and the drama starts when she was mistakenly inseminated with another man’s sperm – resulting her being a pregnant virgin!
Do you find the storyline interesting already? Hehehe. Well I’m a big fan of romantic comedy and all things drama thus I found this TV series very interesting. I got hooked right after watching the first episode! It’s very funny and it has surprising plot which according to my mum is typical telenovela! Hahahaha. Well I don’t normally watched telenovela but I believe her because she used to be a telenovela translator after we got back from Venezuela and believe me, she has watched a looooot of them.
I’m following the series week by week now and I just finished watching the latest episode “Chapter 10” last night. Boy does the plot gets more and more interesting. Still with a funny touch, of course! Oh, and did you know that Gina Rodriguez (who is playing Jane) recently won Golden Globe for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy? Woohooo!
Okay so before I finished this post, have a look at the trailer and see if you think you’d like this TV series as well.
Btw, do you watch TV series? what are you currently following?
