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.

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.

 

 

Glee wont be same…!!!!

 

This morning i woke up and heard the sad news of Cory Monteith. Cory’s death makes me sad…i don’t know him but knowing he died is sad. He was young, talented and gifted but its all has come to an end…its sad. I played some of his songs on Youtube because a part of me needed to see him. Glee is more than a show for me, because i relate to some of its characters. I see myself in Glee, somewhere in that class sitting among those kids. When Finn sang to Santana, i felt like he was singing to me.
