New York is, I think, the most cited city in the world of media: from radio to TV through to books: like it or not, everyone has felt like they belong to the New York people at least once!
We met Ally in the streets of Manhattan, took classes next to Blair at NYU, had breakfast at Central Perk, chased the criminals through the streets of Brooklyn.

New York is the goal, the dream, the goal.

Sure the United States offers far more beautiful cities and views, but anyone who has ever planned a trip to…

“The difficult PATH to good”

I love when a TV series makes you think, it puts you in front of a moral dilemma and with each episode it confuses you more and more… it is not a static product, it is not a passive relationship. This show brings the viewer to take an active part, questions which faction to choose, and – for the first time – put a completely different point of view on religious cults.

Winter, apartment under renovation, there are homeless seeking shelter against sub-zero temperatures, the builder chases them away. He has to do it. But then he goes out quickly, comes back shortly after with a shopping bag and a couple of steaming sandwiches, goes to the homeless and leaves them everything.

the-path-204-1

Is it the proximity to Christmas, or – like me – did he just finished The Path and had a great need to do good to humanity, seasoned with a vague but constant sense of guilt?
Perhaps he is just a generous man, the fact is that it is rare to see such a gesture and it remains impressed on me.
Especially since, as I mentioned, I have just finished to watch the second season of one of the most ambiguous series ever.
How thin is the line between good and evil?
When we do a good action, are we…

“11.22.63 _ Save President Kennedy (or don’t)”

The soundtrack is another good point of the show, during the 8 episodes of the first and only season, you can listen to songs of the quality of Stay (Just a Little Bit Longer) by Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs, Then He Kissed Me by the female group The Crystals, Sam Cooke’s soul with Bring It On Home To Me up to the symbolic Soldier Boy sung by Shirelles.

Abrams and King, as soon as I read these two paired names I was convinced. I haven’t even watched the trailer, but I went to browse around the plot and I found it absolutely brilliant: Kennedy was one of the most beloved presidents of the States, but is it because he is dead too soon? In the short time he was President he made positive choices for his country, but would he continue to go on like this if he stayed alive?
Could some of the recent wars have been avoided? Could Kennedy have saved the world?
Based on this question, Jake Epping’s (James Franco) ride through time begins in an effort to change the fate of the President.
11.22.63 is the date that must be changed, but this secret assignment will be hampered not only by Lee Harvey Oswald (the one who was found guilty of the crime –…

“Pork Ribs for the nuclear Apocalypse”

Fortunately, to alleviate my despair, RaiDue decided to broadcast one of the craziest TV series of that time and surely one of the unluckiest, so much so that it was canceled twice.
But don’t be put off, because I promise you it’s a dystopian and adrenaline-fueled series that you can’t miss.

“Bagel, Coffee, Lawyers and the Big Apple”

The truth is that I had been highly influenced by the appearance, by the lustre that the profession has always had through the media, in which they are authoritarian, beautiful, very busy people, who deal with symbolic, important, difficult cases. No TV series has ever shown lawyers discuss the price of a repair in the condominium whatever.

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

There was a time, towards the end of the school, when I had half an idea of being a lawyer. The divorcee, to be accurate.

It seemed like a safe job. A profession accepted by the society and above all lucrative given the exponential number of separations!

But then the idea of studying Latin for other five years, discouraged me a bit, having seen a real civil trial, long, boring, absolutely different from the sparkling and adventurous image that the TV gave, it drove me to change direction.

“Pirožki, Jail and Freedom”

This is exactly what the TV series I want to recommend to everyone is about: ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, by Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling (“Mercy”, “Argo”) a Waspy (white, blonde, upper middle class) 34 years old, who lives her very banal life in New York; she lives with a losing but sweet boyfriend, and leads a quiet and normal life.

“Who killed Laura Palmer?”

Fans of TV series or mystery, amateurs of the surreal, connoisseurs of wild shipping, it is a product that manages to capture everyone, and deserves to be watched and re-watched even if only for the merit of having been an open track.

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

It could be because the mysterious new season will be release soon, but I have a great desire to watch Twin Peaks again!

I don’t know what to expect from this reboot of Twin Peaks, but I’m definitely curious to find out what that genius David Lynch[1] has in mind for us!

Who does not know THE TV series par excellence? The product that changed the television schedule forever …

When the pilot came out, in 1990, the mystery of Laura Palmer’s death was a reason for daily dialogue, nothing that was on TV at the time was able even in the slightest to come close to that mixture of mystery, soap opera and auteur cinema which, also relying on a clever catchphrase as simple as it is intelligent (“Who killed Laura Palmer?”), had wedged itself into homes all over the world and had induced unsuspecting bystanders to clash…

“Lunch with Felicity”

“Felicity” gave the impression that college was a wonderful place for meetings and network.
After three years with the same people, and two others ahead, it looked like heaven! Not that I was not happy with my class, at least with part of it, but the image of American colleges is always idyllic and makes me want to go not so much to join classes (almost always unjustified absent) but for the dormitories, the refectory, the everyday jobs, the study groups (which did everything except studying).

<<I trust you, Felicity. This is my drama: for better or for worse, I always believe in you.>>


When I used to come back from high school starving, I often had to wait for my brother to  return, hence to avoid eating the plate and the tablecloth, I used t turn on the TV hoping there was something decent that could distracted me. Of course, lunchtime was my mother’s turn to choose what to watch, but from time to time she let us select the series provided it was something she liked too. That’s how I started watching “Felicity”.
It was the end of May, the school luckily was almost at the end but that meant classroom work in a burst, so the idea to get out of that nightmare and start the university where – naively I thought – I could handle all my time, was a real relief.

“Spy hunter”

Unlike other series that I watched in one breath, I distributed Homeland in the various long, cold, dark winters, with a maximum of three episodes a week, because the topics covered are still a weak point for me, too painful comparison with reality. –

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

To whom we have to trust, we ask ourselves questions in Homeland. Of the war hero believed dead in Iraq, found and released after years of imprisonment, who has perhaps become, in the meantime, an Al Qaeda spy? Or the only CIA agent who suspects the threat, but who, at the same time, exceeds with the use of drugs and seems to have some misplaced wheels?

In your opinion, having read some of my articles, what attracted me to “Homeland”? The “spy hunt”? how they translated the title in Italy? Because  

I have always been fascinated by the CIA? For an insane desire to watch in the fictions what we unfortunately already find  in the news? – ie: that the terrorists are our neighbors, people we meet every day.

No. Or rather, they are all good points, but what convinced me to start this TV series was to…

“It is always (RED) tea time”

A curiosity of the TV series lies in the titles of the episodes, in fact up to the eighth of the sixth season, the word “red” or other terms that refer to color (such as “blood”, “crimson” or “cherry”) always appear. This is a clear reference to the name of serial killer Red John, who, while not appearing in all the episodes, is regularly involved in the psychological life of the protagonist. In the Italian version, the word “red” is always put in the titles, even when in the original title are found other words.
