@theadventurezone is such a good show!! Every arc just gets better and better- the players keep fleshing out their funny, thoughtful characters, and the music, NPCs, and overarching story get more and more engaging
CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW THIS SHOW JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER?!
I still think Bea is alive/hiding away somewhere… I mean she escaped 2 times…
“I had to see her, I love her”
Bridget “ I risked everything for you why couldn’t you trust me ?! “Bridget loves Franky so much omg , pls don’t break up!
As soon as Joan mentioned Bridget Franky lost her sh*t
Joan’s fighting skills XD
Joan is like
I like Franky and Allie as friends… nothing more tho.
Am I the only one that doesn’t ship Vera and Jake.. like.. I don’t see the chemistry.
So… Jake is a junkie and a drug smuggler?
Joan threatening Jake like
I like Vera and Bridget’s friendship :3
Joan’s puns and the “ HA “ xD Also, believe it or not she doesn’t seem like it was her agenda to get Franky back?
So… Will believes in justice but not the system? I hope he helps Franky and uncovers Jake’s involvement.
“She loved you so much” :(((((( BALLIE
Everyone wants to take down Fergurson… I hope Franky doesn’t fall back in that track… kind-of ruins her character development.
JOAN FINAL SCENE WITH THE UNIFORM YASSS
I still think Bea is alive and will kill Joan.
So… Joan now wants to destroy Vera? She knows Vera and Jake are together so she’ll continue manipulating Jake/Vera. She can only Hurt Franky if smth happens to Bridget? I hope we see Franky’s sister ? Can Shane just show up and clear the story for Franky. LOL plot twist, Bea killed the guy for Franky xD Jk was probably Jake?
And so recently, I’ve gotten myself into Norwegian teenage hell (heaven?) – Skam.
I was scrolling through my Twitter and once again, I discover something that’s invest-my-whole-fucking-life material. So before anything else, I just want to say: “Fucking hell, Skam is so beautiful.”
For those of you who don’t know, Skam is a Norwegian coming-of-age TV show that is centered on different main characters for each season. (If you’re wondering: yes, the seasons are connected with each other. Same characters, same universe, different main.) The first season follows Eva, the second Noora, and the third Isak (who were both introduced Eva’s close friends.) I think this concept is actually pretty clever. It emphasizes the fact we all feel like the main characters in our lives (obviously) and feel like everything is thrown to us whenever we experience problems. What we’re sometimes unaware of is that we only play as side characters in other people’s lives, moreover someone close to us. What do they feel about us? What role do we play in their lives? It’s interesting how the personality and vibe of each main changes when the…main changes (Sorry for the redundancy).
The opening sequence to the first episode was straightforward, and in my opinion, letting the audience immediately cross out what I’ve mentioned above. It is not just ’that’ show. As the show progresses, it just gets better and better. Sure it doesn’t involve major conflicts where you have to find out who the killer is or the main character finally accepting his fate as The Chosen One™, but it reels you in. The shots, the dialogue, and the story in general that may appeal tedious if you don’t look at the minor details. The authenticity of this show is what makes it special. The camerawork (and the cinematography in general), was especially my favorite. I found the camerawork rather awkward and shaky but later on I interpreted it as a way of making it seem like the audience is actually watching the events happen with their own two eyes. Another thing I’ve noticed is how there are these times where they focus on a character making a certain expression that lasts longer than usual. It was super awkward at first but it’s just so fascinating how it imitates the way the expression of doubt, the little breaths, gazes, blinks, and gulps when we try to process our thoughts. I’ve also heard that Julie Andem, the creator of the show, casted actual teens who have no experience in acting whatsoever(?) Oh, and their official website releases clips of episodes released in real time. A timestamp is shown in an episode to indicate this. Example is when a
timestamp shows that it’s Sunday, 1:00 PM, both the setting of the
show and the release of the clip are the same. (They even have their
character Instagram accounts, for fuck’s sake.)
Another thing I loved about Skam is that in contrast to the whole upperclass, utopian-like lifestyle and carefree vibe the show promotes, it tackles on social issues such as racism, sexism, and various political issues. Not just that, but its subtopics. Never have I seen a show where they discuss Islamophobia and internalized homophobia and misogyny. The thing is, they don’t just parade these issues around to gain the title of being “woke” , but rather actually educating people of their ignorance (which is rare in American and Philippine television, let me tell you.) Skam has captured both the gritty nature of reality - acknowledging the struggles teenagers go through and the prejudice the minorities face but at the same time showing us how to accept this and live in the moment.
It’s a show that has great character development and at the same time sheds some light to major issues we tend to neglect or be unaware of.
It’s too good to be fucking true. We do not deserve this gem. Where else can you find a good show like this? Damn you, Norwegians.
That episode was SO GOOD. FUCK. I love this show. It just keeps getting better and better. This ep felt so different and SO AMAZING. Give me all of the procedural, crime-fighting Shadowhunter stuff. Give me all the emotional relationship stuff. Give me more Magnus & Camille and Magnus & Raphael and Alec & Clary and Clary & Jace. FUCK. And all of the LIGHTWOOD SIBLING hugs. I AM FREAKING OUT.
ADAM MCARTHUR’S STARCO THEORY
as stated from his periscope :)
after the Banagic Wand commercial, Star was totally amazed by the idea of “frieeeeendship maaaaagic” by eating the ice cream with friends but by the end of the episode (after Marco’s cute speech about underestimating her), she awkwardly puts down his ice cream slowly and walks away saying “there was a fly on it”
she didn’t let him eat the ice cream because she didn’t want the friendship magic. but. maybe MORE THAN FRIENDSHIP MAGIC?!?!???!?!1
Simon, i really like Alberto ! I think he’s doing a great job! He is so nervous and nerdy it’s perfect.
Maureen, I’m still sad that ur not 13 and annoying
Clary, Kat getting better !! It’s awesome how fast she developing. I like that she was the one who kissed Jace and not the other way around. I loved that scene when she slapped jace! That was so fun
Jace, Dom is also getting better! I think that he’s much better now at the sassy-I’m-so-hot attitude. And when Jace played along w the slap and all that and just “babe it was just two or three times” I loved that
Izzy, you’ve been great from the start. I like that they are pushing this protect Alec and let him live a little side of her, she would really do anything for her brother
Luke, i still dont Get why they made u a cop. And did anyone else notice his ass? Goddamn
Magnus, I needed more Magnus in this episode. The laugh in the beginning though! Best thing
Alec, bby u don’t need to care about Jace and clary just go b with Magnus for another night and don’t do much sleeping and by “for another night” I mean for the rest of ur life. U know u want that D, listen to ur sister izzy. CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE DISTRACTION SCENE! That was such an awesome and cute scene I needed it so much ! Matthew daddario is perfect for our Alec! “Do u come here often” I LAUGHING SO HARD OMGGG 😂😂
This Tv show is, as mentioned earlier, just getting better and better! I love how the actors grow into their parts and I love how they haven’t destroyed the books for me (yet at least, please never do that! I will hate u)
Thank u and good night! *chanting*
Btw, Simons mom and sister omg those two were so amazing !!
This smile is to much for me OMGGG Matthew why u so smokin sizzling hoooot
I wanted something that wasn’t all srs drama or relied on a lot of deep concentration, and I have to say this was a really good choice so far. So much warped, black humor. Also it’s sweet what a good couple Sheila and Joel are?
Like, ‘we’re facing this TOGETHER because we love each other dammit!’ It’s just.. weirdly wholesome? Minus the whole zombie eating people aspect.
Idea: It’s Christmas 2016. The execs at ABC are visited by a series of ghosts, Dickens-style, and forced to see clearly the tragedy that is a world without Agent Carter. They finally get their heads out of their asses and decide to bring it back. Every single member of the original cast signs on. Marvel and ABC market it wonderfully and the Nielsen ratings for season three are five times what they were during season two. The quality of the show just keeps getting better and better. You can now stream every single episode on Netflix worldwide.
Are you a fan of D&D, ridiculous characters and hilarious improv? Then might I suggest a personal favorite series of mine known as Thrilling Intent. The folks behind this do an absolutely incredible job and are pretty close to hitting 100 episodes! It’s criminal how few views this series receives when so much work is put into it and it’s such an excellent show. Thrilling Intentseriously just gets better and better and never dips in quality. Now the first couple episodes may feel a little slow but they really help set the feel of the series. After that, it’s a marvelous adventure. So if you’ve got some time and need to start something new, give Thrilling Intent a try!
