The Killing ….!!!!!!

I truly believe ‘The Killing’ is one of the greatest shows ever its intense, dark yet it makes sense. A red hair detective who is obsessed with her job and works like any a super cop, except she is all human, has a boy she is not able to give time to, has personal demons she fights and some highly funny but normal-people like sweaters. A macho looking tall detective partner whose irony is his struggle with dope and his belief that he can be a good man too. Together they solve cases, fight bad guys to find justice for grieving families while feeling the same level of pain personally and professionally, as they smoke cigarettes one thing that bonds them apart from their job.

SPOILER ALERT – i am going to tell you what makes The Killing so awesome and what i think about the finale.

You know after watching shows like Dexter, HIMYM, Lost and Prison Break i felt so cheated and heartbroken because the finales were disappointing to the core. I mean, Lost and Dexter broke my heart and HIYM felt like waste of time. My purpose of talking about these shows is that after watching the finales of such big and grand shows i gave up on finales, i was sure all my favourite shows were going to end up with a senseless finale and I’m pretty sure it would happen with others too but The Killing isn’t one of them.

It’s a dark show, many of my friends have given up on it and some won’t even start with it because, yes, it’s dark. But if you watch it, you would see how much sense it makes every in damn season, every damn case and the finale. And it’s like Veena Sud knew what the show needed – a happy closure. After 4 seasons of darkness, Linden and Holder found the peace, the happiness and moment of truth – they belong together.

I know, it’s just a show but for me it was like i was part of the journey Sarah Linden went through. Each case whether it was Rosie Larsen, Bullet and Callie or Kyle Stansbury, i felt like i was a part of it. Maybe that’s why i solved them all before the finale.

When Rosie Larsen died, it broke my heart, when Bullet died i cried for real but my favourite moment was the last scene when she came back. When Sarah drove back to Holder. When a show so dark, painful and twisted got a happy ending. I think i took a sigh of relief because they didn’t kill Sarah or Holder i mean they could have, it was the show where people died but they didn’t.

Every single episode was gripping and every single case was close to my heart because of the stories, the emotions, the pain and the hope that Linden and Holder would find out who did it.

Finale was just fantastic because of the ending. Just fantastic. Thankyou Veena Sud.

P.S sharing video and images from the fb page of this amazing show.

I want to talk, but im dead tired…!!!!

As i sat in my car for 20-30 minutes melting in the heat while waiting for my parents to come back i wrote a big emotional post on Robin Williams and Windows for WordPress very smartly and magically made it all disappear. So i will write again but tomorrow. Right now I’m dead. I’m like a sleep deprived zombie.

Also, i want to share about The Killing and it finale. I cant thank Veena Sud enough for giving me the show and the closure. But tomorrow maybe.

Before i go and fall dead asleep, let me do share one thing. For the first time in my life i met a person who doesn’t like Meg Ryan or You’ve Got Mail. An intern in Gotham City. I was like NOOOOOoooooo.

Dear George Mallory…!!!!

It took me sometime but i finally managed to finish “Love letters to the dead” and I’m ready for the new novel based on series “The Killing. Can’t wait. Love letters to the dead was more or like similar to “The perks of being a wallflower” but both the books have their own charm. A part of me relates to protagonists in both the books, for a moment there i couldn’t help but notice that Charlie was projection of my own self in a different way.

I haven’t written letters to anyone for ages now. I used to, once. I truly was good with letters because i used to write letters to my friends, close friends. Letters with and without reasons. Funny how we grow up and everything changes because of experiences and time and life.

If i was to write a letter to a dead celebrity, like Laurel did in the book, i would choose George Mallory. When i read Paths of Glory all i wanted to know was what happened to him and his partner. I mean did they make it? Did he get to put his wife’s picture up there? What happened that day? Where is Andrew Irvine?

I’m nothing like George Mallory but his life fascinates me. His love for Ruth and Everest is amazing. If only i was that kind of person, with true motivation and hunger in me. If only, I was driven by a passion so deep, so true. I want to ask him, if he was scared when he fell? Did he felt lost? Cause i m scared all the time and I feel lost all the time. I wonder what Ruth must have gone through, not the part where she lost her man but the part where she didn’t even know what happened to him, did he or did he not get to make his dream come true? I’m obsessed with it, wonder if it bothered her and for how long? If only Mallory could know how his grandson followed his footstep and kept his legacy alive by reaching the Everest.

For me George Mallory and Amelia Earhart are two heroes, real heroes. I’m obsessed with their mysteries. I can only hope TIGHAR would one day find her plane. We can’t bring her back or know what exactly happened, but it would be like having a closure.

Sarah Linden…she is tough, she is dark, she is wrong and she is real…

What makes Linden awesome is that she doesnt have to be one of those long legged, low neck brunettes with a gun..she wears everyday look..has sweaters like real people…is shit scared yet super tough…she isn’t all bulletproof like a superhero …she is human, she is twisted, she gets hurts, she has her own mess inside her head and she is real…

I am a Beckett fan and i love Nancy Drew too but i believe Sarah Linden (The Killing) has to be the best female fictional detective or cop…I think this blog covers it all.

There are 3 reasons why im obsessed with The Killing – Sarah Linden, Stephen Holder and Bullet…

The whole darkness, drama, emotions, mystery, race and search that engulfs every single episode of The Killing makes it so crazy but addictive. All you want to do is watch another episode. Man! i cant wait for Season4.

Fiction is like Xanax…!!!!

Only other fictional character I grieved for after Meg’s Capt. Karen Emma Walden is Bullet from The Killing.

Its super late and I’m up trying to finish my SJ Bolton book. There was a time I used to finish reading so quickly and now it takes me weeks, thanks to Tv shows.

Time to sleep.
Goodnight world!

Bore…..Zzzzz….ed!!!!!!

I think I know why I get obsessed with some shows. Some stories stay with you because they end up being the reflection of your own life. That’s why.

So today was a very boring and highly dull day at Gotham, which was also the highlight of my day. How? Well, when you end up staring at the screen all bored of the monotonous and stagnant 9 hours of life, you end up taking to yourself:

“This is it. I’m no longer going to waste my life. I have to get up and get out of my comfort zone. I will write and get my book published and never come back to Gotham or I will walk out of Gotham and find another job where life is little creative. This is it. From today I will work my way towards my dreams.”

And then you hear applause followed by laughter, uncontrollable ROFL kind of laughter, from the voices inside your head and you kind of smile because you knew how funny every word of your silent conversation was. I mean even you know you won’t and can’t ever break the shackles you have around you. Because you are, you.

In simple words, I had a boring, dull and super lame day though it wasn’t sad just booooorinng. Worst part is to get up in cold morning to drive to a place where I have to spend next 9 hours listening to each and every song in my mp3 player, drinking coffee and staring at my watch wondering how, once, Gotham was my safe haven.

I don’t know if its possible for a person to die of boredom, but my brain cells are surely dying slowly.

Leaving you with a song from “The killing”. Its a dark show but something about it will always stay with me.

 

 

Little Hulk…!!!!

Was suppose to be a happy weekend, but i guess that word kind of has some issues with me. Anyhow, weird but am looking forward to go back to Gotham tomorrow.

I am worried about my awesomeness…its all down to minus 20.

Before I go I want to say “Thankyou Veena Sud” for The Killing. What show.

Dark Passenger or Dumb Passenger? DEXTER SPOILER ALERT

Spoiler Alert:

I’m highly disappointed with the finale of Dexter’s last season. Before i go on talking about what the hell happened let me answer a simple question “why i was avoiding blogging for past few days?”… Answer is simple – I don’t know.

Now that you know that i don’t know lets go back to Dexter. Its juts crazy how you have this very brilliant, out of ordinary and out of box concept of a serial killer who kills only bad guys, who is struggling to be normal around family and friends who adore him for he is nothing but a sweet geeky guy who loves bowling and boating. And then, you just screw it all in the end.

Past few days i have been busy doing nothing but watching back to back episodes of The Killing because im obsessed with it. Let’s be honest im scared now, what will be the finale of The Killing, Pretty Little Liars, Grey’s Anatomy, Castle and Vampire Diaries. Dexter broke my heart into a million pieces and in ways that i am scared about same happening by other shows. I thought  it’s just me, then my brother said the same thing and then i checked internet and saw everyone is saying the same thing. Why Dexter why.

Hanna- Debra

I totally hate the way they handled things with Debra Morgan. Bad way to kill her character, of course i didn’t wanted her to die but if they had to kill her …Dude! Throwing her in sea? What’s got into you Dexter? Dark Passenger or Dumb Passenger? I get the whole idea of not letting your sister suffer, but couldn’t you just take out the ventilator system and leave Deb there?

DEXTER (Season 8)

I mean What the F…I was totally disappointed with the ending of Prison Break but what Dexter did is super sad. Two most extraordinary shows ended in most sloppy ways. Totally crazy.
