SHOOTER (2016 – )

Shooter_2016

Creator: John Hlavin

Cast: Ryan Phillippe, Shantel VanSanten, Cynthia Addai-Robinson

Bob Lee Swagger, a highly-decorated veteran who is coaxed back into action to prevent a plot to kill the President. The series is done as a thriller conspiracy theory.

Now days they are doing series off the film. Ok fine but this time done a little differently I think. You know it is going to be predictable well like  the instructor (Character in the series) tells Swagger “what they ask you to help them to figure out where the shooter is going to shoot the president and you didn’t see that one coming? “ exactly I saw that one coming as I watch the series. You damn well know that you have a sniper who is the best at his job, he is secluded for good reason and a man arrives at his home and said that they need for him to figure out if there were a shooter who is going to kill the president where who he take the shot. The thing is you know what is going to happen now you have a series kind of like the Fugitive. Swagger is now framed for the murder of a president and he is on the run.

Yes there are some shady characters in it and you do not who to trust. It is a fine series here but I wish they would make them less predictable I know not easy to do. The writing is fine and the actors has chemistry, and formidable. The series move along at the pace you want it to move no doubt and you are going to be addicted it is on Netflix In Europe. It is entertaining as hell.

Too funny I heard on the news that El Chapo escape from prison but way later he got caught again and escape from prison once again in Mexico where he was detain. And now Netflix has done a story about his life. The most dangerous drug dealer from the Cartel family and the one who can escape jail .

You see El Chapo want to rise in power as fast as possible and he is not a patient man. But unfortunately he gets shafted left and right at times. You see the Mexican government has to call the military to try to caught those drug dealers because sometimes the police is too corrupt and they need help. The first season is about El Chapo personal quest of becoming the most powerful drug dealer. You will find out that it is not easy to be a drug dealer seeing the life of El Chapo who sometimes gets in trouble and over his head. However there is a couple of people who want him behind bars. It is not going to be as good an Narcos but it will come close. You will be addicted to it, and wanting more. It is on Netflix streaming so have fun with it.

I remember this series back in the days, I was in this family where this boy about 10 years old used to watch it religiously every week even the reruns. He could get enough of it. He might have a crush for Lynda Carter. Watching the show is I noticed the preponderance of female villains Wonder Woman battles, from the spy mistress Baroness Von Gunther to Fausta, the Nazi Wonder Woman, to the trainer of that Nazi gorilla. You even get Wonder Girl, Wonder Woman’s kid sister, played by Debra Winger. The show was female dominated here and for cause, nothing wrong with that it is a nice pace a change. Lynda Carter was doing her own stunts what they allow her to do, she also, has a double for the one that was more complicated and dangerous. Linda fits the role beautifully well. It is a fun series to watch, it brings back memories.

The fans of Batman are in mourning: the unforgettable Adam West, interpreter of the hero in the series cult and kitsch “Batman” of the Sixties and film “Batman” died this june 9th of leukemia. He was 88 years old. RIP Adam.

During three TV seasons, broadcast between 1966 and 1968 on the ABC channel and a movie at the cinema, the American actor incarnated his hero which the series became cult. In 2016, Adam West had agreed to resume his role for an episode for the series Big Bang Theory which celebrated its 200th episode. Most recently, the actor had lent his voice to the pilot of the Powerless series. Throughout his career, West had repeatedly taken over his Batman character, notably for Batman or Tarzan animated series, or the return of the Caped Crusaders, released last year. Of course he has done other roles in movies.

When I first came to the US in the 70’s a teenager that I knew was watching this all the time. He so loved this series. I did do. Back then ti was the coolest thing. The series now is remastered on Blue ray DVD which I am going to get. The duo had chemistry on-screen. In different episode you will see the Joker (Cesar Romero), the Penguin (Burgess Meredith), the Riddler (Frank Gorshin), and the seductive Catwoman (Julie Newmar). The series became a success and very quickly became cult. Terrific series here to be seen over and over. Thank you for entertain us all those years Adam.

BALCK LAGOON (2006 – )

black lagoon

Cast Megumi Toyoguchi, Daisuke Namikawa, Maryke Hendrikse

A Japanese businessman, captured by modern-day pirates, is written off and left for dead by his company. Pissed off and tired of the corporate world he sicks with the pirates that kidnap him to become one of them.

Here is definitely an animation  that is filled with action and explosions. there are plenty of gun action in this one. Plus boat chase, scuba diving, more gun action. The pirates here are the cool under dog here big time. Revi here is the girl in this gang who loves guns and action, Rock on the other hand is being kidnap and is a little  mellow and start up to warm up to Revi who does not want to do anything with him. And yes they even have the guy who stays in the back and takes care of the computers and such. Plenty of action in this one but I ma told that the company that made this series stop selling it over seas. So there is only 2 season so far of 12 episodes. Well I am going to have fun with this one anyway.

PERSON OF INTEREST (2011 – 2016)

person-of-interest

Creator: Jonathan Nolan

Cast: Jim Caviezel, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman

You are being watched. The government has a secret system; a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror, but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people. People like you. Crimes the government considered irrelevant. They wouldn’t act… so I decided I would. But I needed a partner. Someone with the skills to intervene. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You will never find us. But, victim or perpetrator, if your number’s up, we’ll find you.

The mastermind behind the secret government surveillance tech is wealthy recluse Harold Finch (Michael Emerson), and his machine doesn’t just see everything, it has predictive capabilities too. His partner is John Reese (Jim Caviezel), a highly skilled CIA field agent who, despite his best attempts, has a difficult time uncovering information about his new boss, Mr. Finch. Finch monitors the machine and analyzes its data feeds, you see the machine though in a number and a crime is about to commit the number is the social security of someone who might be in trouble and he or she needs help. Reese handles the heavy lifting, relying on his training and expertise to get the job done. Their efforts  attract the attention of the New York City police — detectives  single mother Joss Carter (Taraji P. Henson) and Finch’s man-inside-the-NYPD, Lionel Fusco (Kevin Chapman) — a potential threat Finch and Reese use to their advantage.

Here is a cool little series kind set in today where Finch has the machine that can predict when a crime is gone to be committed. The series takes off just fine. Caviezel who plays Reese here is enigmatic and has a tortured soul. Person of interest is a break out series here as original as it gets. It is an intelligent action-packed audience pleaser. I was hooked on it for 5 years and that is a good run for a series plus later in the years to come there will be different characters that is going to pop in and out. U fortunately it ended this years on a note of 16 episode only.

BLINDSPOT (2015 – )

blindspot

Creator: Martin Gero

Cast: Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, Rob Brown

A woman wakes in a duffel bag in the middle of time square New York, and she is cover with tattoos to top it all off she does not remember her name or where she came from.

Here is a scene that is an attention getter, it’s a variation on a puzzle series, where the plot are with clues that  slowly unveiled, but what a variation. This puzzle is etched on a human being as a form of tattoos. Jane Doe, a woman who has been tattooed from head to toe and whose memory has been chemically obliterated. Jaimie Alexander who plays jane who is this vulnerable who man who can kick some serious ass. Weller and the rest of the investigative team at the FBI soon realize that the tattoos are instruction or clues. Here is a series that does not pull punches it has action, and mysteries and as the series advances it begins to unravel more about jane.The real question with any solve-the-puzzle series is whether there is going to be a rewarding payoff at some point or whether the show is just going to be a series of clues that lead only to more clues. “One thing’s for sure,” Weller says. “Someone likes playing games, and this is just the beginning.”You will have to watch it like the rest of us to find out more about it.
