“Have a KILLER day!”

My relationship with Dexter, as with other TV series, was wavering, I finished the first three seasons that same August, but I struggled a lot with the fourth and fifth, so much so that I left it for a while (two years! !!) before ending with a marathon – always during the summer! – of the sixth, seventh and eighth seasons (which in the meantime I had sporadically already seen on TV … a sign that they were actually replicas of replicas of replicas and it was a coincidence that for me it was a novelty) and a kilo of enchiladas shrimps * – which once after the series ended, it took about eight months before I could ate them again…

* ENCHILADOS SHRIMPS
(the recipe is my review of the original recipe)

79_dexter

Ingredients for 4 people

– 1/2 kilo of unshelled prawns
– 3 tablespoons of olive oil
– 1 chopped onion
– 3 garlic teeth
– 1 sprig of parsley
– 1 teaspoon of salt
– 1/8 teaspoon pepper
– 1 lemon
– 3 tablespoons of tomato sauce
– 1/2 cup of sweet dry white wine
– hot pepper to taste

 

 

We lightly mean the prawns. Prepare a sauté with oil, garlic, onion and parsley. In this sauce we throw the previously peeled prawns and garnished with salt, pepper and lemon. We remove them and add the chilli pepper, tomato sauce and wine. At this point, we throw the prawns back, uncover the pan and cook them over low heat until they are very tender.

 

 

Easy, right?

Once again, I find myself watching a bloody…

“Greetings from Gotham”

I have to admit : I am two seasons behind. I stopped watching it just because I had too many, but I think it’s time to do a rewatch and go on. Then, this cold is perfect for Gothic and polenta…. Don’t you think?

I have always loved Batman.
It is perhaps the only DC hero I appreciate, and it is definitely the comic with the best villains ever! It was my brother who made me approach comics, PKs, Marvel sagas especially (although I am then obsessed with x-men and he prefers avengers), but the love for batman was born by himself and it is totally and inextricably stabilized with the trilogy of Nolan (an absolute masterpiece shredded away by that horrendous new Batman on the screens put next to that vapid of Superman).
So when I heard that Fox was making a prequel based on Gordon and the villains, I could not resist, I waited impatiently and a bit of torment because of the few poor films in which the bad guys find themselves being good and the choice to be the protagonist by Ryan’s of The OC (Benjamin McKenzie)…

” To Luke’s, for Hamburger & Coffee”

Personally, I grew up with this show, when it came out in 2002 I was sixteen … now I’m thirty … it’s easy to understand that now Lorelai, Rory, Luke, Sookie and the rest of the country, are part of my life, my family! So, I must admit , every time it is on tv, I find myself rewatching it, so much so that I could recite line by line some of the episodes.
And every time I watch an episode I get very hungry!!!

Is there any of you that never heard this theme? I can’t believe it, it’s impossible!
Willy-nilly it happened to everyone of us to listen to it and maybe even humming it, since on TV they give the replicas of “Gilmore Girls” one day in one day out!
Whether it is summer or winter, with rain, snow or the sun, it is in the schedules! A guarantee equal only to “Murders she wrote” and, despite this, every time it succeeds to make a share to envy the news around, despite we know all the jokes by heart we continue to watch the show, cause Stars Hollow is always a second home, you can’t avoid to fall in love with Jess[1](or Dean, or Chris, or Luke, or Logan, depends on your #ship) and remain glued to listen to the fast dialogues of the protagonists. Impossible to resist the…

“Pancakes, Brandy & Manipulation”

Naively, I was convinced that the quiz I was taking part to with my class was an educational and fun idea to learn something new. But just before the red light marked the REC, a producer (who was then called “director’s slave”) came to give me the answers.
Not the questions, the answers !!!!
Even today I persist outraged!

The first time I was in a TV studio I was enchanted by the dazzling lights, the multicolours panels and …. by make-up artists, prompts, hunchbacks, and a thousand other artefacts that are committed to making true what is so fake.

Even today I persist outraged!
First of all because I would have known the answers by myself!
Secondly because it was all a scam!
My team had to win because “more telegenic” than the adversary.
That’s all.
No worth.

“Castle, Pizza and Beer”

It’s not the classic TV crime series because the murder, it’s just a pretext to plunge into the life of Castle and Beckett, and for a fast pace, or for jokes and weird theories, which instill good humor in the spectator. Another very funny peculiarity is that in bookstores you can find the “real” novels[2] of Richard Castle, Nathan Fillion – the actor who plays the protagonist – said that the author of the novels appears in the episode in which the new book is presented, so it is rumored that it is Tom Straw, screenwriter and sit-com author, but there is no official confirmation

I know, conventionally, people on Saturday night go out, but – excluding the nights of the shows – when it becomes cold (so from October to March more or less) I prefer to dedicate Friday to social life and on Saturday to burrow myself under a blanket, with pizza *! I wait the all week to be able to enjoy pizza on Saturday, it is now a habit and when it is violated due to force majeure, I get a big sadness.

tumblr_mzetbo8qbk1s30a57o1_500For years I have been associating pizza with beer[1], and at the pizza and beer night, I associate Castle because in the Italian programming, it is always showed in the early evening that day.

“Scream(ing) in the Summer”

Currently the first two seasons are available on Netflix, but after the special Halloween 2016, there is a third and final (rumours) season made of six episodes.
When?????

We are still waiting

The horrortumblr_n141rcaide1sl1yruo1_500has never been my favourite kind, but there has been a Summer during my teenage years when a series of such films stepped out and so I have seen them all, becoming almost a fan.

Rarely these stories make me really scared, insted their soundtracks leave  me with that sense of subdued anguish , but to be honest a few scenes let me also with sleepless nights.

Although not an expert I know the main rule:

 

scream-mtv-season-2-announce1so when I heard that they would have created a TV series from a horror saga I was very much intrigued. I find it already difficult to make the film sequel, but even a TV show? How?

“Bloody Toast”

Okay, something’s wrong with me; why all the most cruel and bloody series make me hungry ????? !!!!
Is it possible that I tend to correlate the red blood that is widely paid with the sauce of the meatballs, pizza, the lasagna … ???

I wonder if there is some psychiatrists among you that wants to come along with the analysis …

Meanwhile, I arrange a Bloody Mary * inclusive with toast-another-yearpinzimonio, I take a seat on a comfortable chair in the room and I go to end my adventure with True Blood.

Needless to say, the cocktail colour goes well with the bloody scenes of this show from the bright flag and bold dialogues.

It might be because of the replication on Paramount Channel or because ofthe reunion the cast made a few days ago about the presidential debate, it might be because it remains one of my favourite shows, despite the years and the ending a bit sad … I don’t know but I felt the need to review Will & Grace, AGAIN

A theme that still seems ablaze, despite the past ten years from the closing of the show. I have always been shocked about homophobia, I just can not understand it and I find it ridiculous and inappropriate. Love is love. It’s complicated, necessary, weird, silly, but it is love.

“Muffin, Tequila And Anatomy”

“After all this time…”

Risultati immagini per grey's anatomy gif

 

I have always swanked of not having catastrophic addictions: I do not smoke, I do not hazard, I drink moderately. For a while I got to eat a lot of the really impressive goleador[1] fruit, but I stopped.

The only real addiction that I have always had is the one for books. No matter how many I have waiting in the library or on the bedside table, if I see one (or more) that catches my attention, I have to take it!
But it’s not a bad addiction, indeed, it endorsed me to grow, to be able to compare myself, to learn a great deal and to vary the genres, over the years I realized that we have to read a bit of everything from classics to children’s books, from thrillers to romance.

So I felt immune and safe.

Then Grey’s Anatomy, the TV medical series created by Shonda Rhimes arrived.

“Knock – Knock : Murder or Treat?”

provide yourself with the S’mores Lollipop * and other mouth-watering treats, with a beautiful face mask (one of those that…. if you open the door with that cucumber smeared on your face you are more scarying than if you wore a full Halloween costume), and make sure that there is still a daylight, or someone in your home that can protect you from the psychological anxiety that this show generates.

Halloween has always been one of my favourite celebrations!

I know, I know, is not an Italian custom. giphy8So what? I celebrate it anyway. It will be for my penchant for the theatre but the idea of dressing up and walk around with a different face for a night in which everything-can-happen, it’s something I really like!

I’m glad that in recent years it is also spreading here and that some children come knocking for the traditional “trick or treat?”; It will not be a little make-up and fun to make us lose our cultural identity !!
What I hope is not going to be imported along with the festivities and costumes by creatures of the night, it is the incredible spear in murders that take place on the night of October 31.
I don’t think it’s the party itself to blame, whilst the possibility for murderers to blend…
