Blood & Oil

Par défaut

I first heard of this TV series on CTV while being in Canada. It was pretty intriguing for the European that I am. And I’m not sure this show will ever cross the Atlantic.
North Dakota and the oil boom aren’t among the sexiest place on earth – unlike the Upper East Side or the Orange County. But since It’s starring Chace Crawford I had to give it a go.
And so did I. I never watch Dallas but I honestly believe they can be close. There’s guns, oil, money and family fights and of course huge SUV and pick up trucks. I although reminded me a bit of 666 park avenue. Especially the relationship between Cody and Billy LeFever, Hap and Carla Briggs reminded me of the relationship between Jane Van Veen, Henry Martin and Olivia and Gavin Doran. These young couples looking for success and choosing some very dark mentors.

I think the show was cancelled after one season, probably because it was hard to find a public for that kind of show.

Quantico

Par défaut

Well after trying « Blood and Oil » – article coming – I saw the trailer of the show Quantico. So I’ve decided to have a look at it.

I had no idea what to expect. Beside the fact that it was about the FBI academy.

So for once it wasn’t about FBI, NCIS, LAPD or Hawaii 5-0 agents but about their training and learning process. The show is although full of flashbacks and flashforwards which makes it interestingly challenging to watch. The characters all have secrets and some very well built personalities.  Of course we don’t know everything about their past or hidden personality traits Which makes it great to watch.

It’s a good show to watch if you like action and are ok with a messy timeline.

Christmas mood

Christmas is coming. Christmas markets are flourishing around here, first snow already happened, winter tires are on.
So what’s best than watching Christmas movies when it’s cold outside and using some Christmas apps/
Here’s a little selection of my favorite ones.

The Holiday, because it’s great. And I listen to « Dream Kitchen » all year long.

Love Actually, because the opening speech is AMAZING. 

Home Alone, because I’m a 90s kid and that it’s aired every year.

Now to the apps!

Last year I’ve discovered this app that turned my phone into a real winter wonderland. If you’re more into the music, check out Christmas FM.
