K-drama Review: Maids

Let me start by saying that the drama was enjoyable. I really enjoy watching South Korean historical dramas. The characters were very believable. When characters make you love, hate them, etc you know they are doing a great job playing their roles. I was exited to see something new from Jung Yoo Mi, the last drama I watched that she was in is, Dong Yi.  Oh Ji Ho was great, my first time watching his work and i became a fan. I enjoyed watching his role. I also loved Jun So Min’s character, I’m going to have my eyes out for more from her. Enough about the characters, on to the drama. I was hooked from the beginning, I couldn’t stop watching. Jung Yoo Mi is a great actress. I went through all emotions watching Maids. The plot is really good. It was so good that I was disappointed because it was rushed. I wanted more. Twenty episodes were not enough and I’m still upset about it. Also, I hated the end. I hate endings where the writers leave me to make my own conclusions or what not. I’m not asking for a happy ending, just want a clear and clean conclusion.  They were certain character developments I wanted to see on-screen. How relationships blossomed or not. I just felt like a lot was missing towards the end.  Like I said, I expected and wanted more. All in all, it was a good drama.

My rating 4 out 5.

Have you seen? What did you think? Would you watch it again?

Another HBO series debuts this month. “Veep” returns on the 12th, with Selma as President of United States of America. I can’t wait for this term’s crazy shenanigans.

Nina Dobrev Leaving ‘The Vampire Diaries’

nina dobrev leaving vampire diaries Nina Dobrev announced on Instagram she is leaving “The Vampire Diaries.”

The actress who protrays Elena on The CW series revealed Monday, she is leaving the show after six seasons.

“I’ve just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own ‘TVD’ Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn’t just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there’s still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I’ll ever know and built an extended family I will love forever.”

“Saying goodbye to Nina is both bittersweet and beautiful,” Showunner Julie Plec said in a statement. “After six-plus years together, the entire cast and crew of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ has reached a level of closeness that I don’t think any of us ever expected. Nina is excited to spread her wings, get some rest, travel the world and also take it by storm, and we support her a thousand-fold. We will miss Nina and the four hundred characters she played, but we look forward to the insane and exciting challenge of continuing to tell stories of our Salvatore Brothers and our much-loved and gifted ensemble.

Will you miss Elena?

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 5 Finale Review

If you haven’t watched the season five finale of “The Walking Dead,” stop reading.

I know I’m late to the party but i just have to blog about the finale.

Glen! Glen, why would you follow that fool outside the fence?? I was screaming every time Glen was on the screen because I could not deal with the possibility of his death. About the chat he had with Maggie, declaring his love, I thought he was going to die since the producers are not afraid of killing characters off the show. Like i was crying.  But Glen proved why i love his character, he had the opportunity to kill Nicholas but he didn’t, despite the hurt and lies Nicholas had put the newcomers through, instead he helped him to the Victoria. Let’s not forget Nicholas shot Glen in the shoulder.

It was not only Glen  that had me screaming, Darly had me shouting. Offering to sacrifice himself so Aaron could get to safety was a big no-no for me. I mean i understand Daryl’s character, he always puts his life on the line for his family, and he mostly gets the food for the group even if he cleans it on your new front porch.  But Darly dying or injured is not acceptable.

Rick Grimes, how I love you despite your faults. I know he didn’t want to go to Alexandria, but he did it for his family. He will always protects his clan first.

imagePete walks in the meeting with Michonne’s katana. Reg tried to stop Pete from attacking Rick, but Pete accidentally slits Reg’s throat.  Deanna saying “do it,” and without any objections or reasoning.  Rick shot the doctor, wife beater in the head. I was like oh. Oh. Oh.

But, but, but… Deanna, I thought a doctor was needed for the new world, for the community. I guess when your loved one dies in front of you, while trying to make peace, you become like Rick, which is what Maggie said earlier during the meeting. She allowed the killing of Pete in front of the people without allowing his family to say goodbye. I wimageas surprised no one was fighting or screaming to save Pete.

Oh Morgan! Why did you have to walk in on that scene, where Deanna ordered Rick to kill the “weak” doctor? The Rick you knew is not the Rick you initially met. I am glad you are safe and sound, and you survived the encounter with the Wolves. I understand not killing the Wolves because every life is precious but how does one ignore inhumane acts? Do you notice every bad person that is not killed always comes back and bites their asses? The Wolf clan knows where Alexandria is because Aaron left his bag while fighting for his life. But thank goodness you were there to safe Darly and Aaron who were trapped while looking to recruit people.

More development, Tara is awake, Maggie, Sasha and Father Gabriel finally had a moment to pray and realize they are left alive for a reason; like Morgan said, “all lives are precious.” Carl doesn’t have to fight anymore and yes, they have a home. Nicholas shot Glen in the shoulder while they were outside the gate. Father Gabriel didn’t lock the gate, not accidentally; allowing walkers to roam in. Rick killed the walkers, which was why he was late to the meeting. The meeting about his fate at Alexandria. Oh Yes!!! The talk Carol and Pete had was totally bad ass. I lost count how many times she called Pete “weak!!”

But I wonder when the people of Alexandria will meet the Wolves who kill humans and make them their meat? I can’t wait for season six!

What did you think of the season finale? Was it what you hoped for and more, or not?
