StartUp is a show about money, technology, gangs and crime. A new kind of currency is about to take over... are you in... are you willing to StartUp. The story is something that grasped my attention with well drawn characters and a raw script. The cast is full of B list actors reaching out of their element and proving themselves by nailing their parts. I strongly recommend this show.
Ray Donovan is a problem solving bad ass... He can manipulate any situation to serve the needs of his clients, family and friends. A diverse and intriguing drama that steers you away from fear and drives solution and resolution into you mind. Nothing can be reversed but you can find yourself in the solution to any problem... just ask Ray Donovan.
Queen a the South is a crime drama about drugs, power and influence. Would you take power if you had the chance? Would you fill whatever role is needed of you to survive? The story is very Latin driven and follows a girl who finds herself falling in with a crowd of drug runners. The actors are well cast, the script is raw and the storyline is well drawn.
Vice principals is a comedy sitcom about the hierarchy of a high school and where the vice principals stand. The groveling for power, the lust for attention, the inner office competition all lead to a well written and funny story. If you liked "East Bound and Down" you will like this series.
Preacher is a apocalyptic science fiction tale of a man trying to make up for past mistakes. As it so happens he decides to become a preacher and inherits miraculous powers of persuasion from up above. The characters are fun, the script is reliable and the storyline is developing quite nicely. I am looking forward to what will come to be. What choices will this so called preacher have to make.
What would you do? What would you risk? Who would you step on? Who would you kill? All this is the name of Power. This series is a gangster crime drama about a man who seeks ultimate power building a drug dynasty and legitimate nightclub. There's more to the high life other than money and power... there's blood, honor, respect, and ruthlessness; all things that Power delivers.
Lucifer is an action packed superhero series about a demon lord himself helping... yes helping humanity in the most unorthodox and playboy way. The script is witty, the episodes well layered and the story is an intriguing one. My mind says do evil but my heart says do good... what an odd conundrum... how will he deal with such a perplexing question? Lucifer's wings never actually left you know...
Dark Net displays the clash of humanity and social dependence on technology. It demonstrates the uses and downfalls of technology when it comes to privacy, intimacy and interaction but also the marvels and expansion of technology. Dark Net depicts the world of the web, how everything and anything can be manipulated, found, created and controlled. "The same tools that are used to create can be used to control" . I respect Showtime for coming out with this show'; great idea, good execution and a beautiful delivery.
Hunted is a gripping action packed drama about corruption, politics, espionage and avarice. The storyline is different but keeps you on the edge of your seat; making you want more. Not only are the fighting scenes well executed but the script, the cast and the delivery is quite good. Its a decent watch, I recommend it. Unfortunately there is no conclusive ending as it was canceled, leaving a bitter taste...
