Hello guys, I’m back again and I want to thank you for your patience.
“You went back on your promise” is the accusation I got on Monday morning and yes.
I’m sorry I didn’t reach out earlier but I couldn’t post on Sunday as I had some glitches with my account which has thankfully been resolved.
So I decided to post this today.
Two weeks ago I did a little poll/ mini research(thanks to Instagram and watsapp) and the aim was to get the Top 10 must watch movie series.
I would have given you my own Top 10 list but I have a very “wonderful” taste. I hardly watch movies that everyone seems to be watching, so I decided to ask the “normal” people. So here it is the Top 10 list of movies names that kept recurring and series to look out for and this is in no particular order
POWER: “If you’ve not watched this, you’re very stale”. That is what they told me. Well, it’s safe to say I am stale then. Because I haven’t watched this I did a check on it. I know most people know what power is about so I would just share this summary that was shared with me. Power is the story of James “Ghost” a rich New York City who owns a nightclub. He wants to build an empire, but he is living a double life. He owns the club and is part of the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York for a very high-level clientele. This eventually affects his marriage, family and business as he is tempted to leave his criminal life behind and become the rags-to-riches businessman he wants to be most of all.
GAME OF THRONES: Someone called this the ultimate must watch. Again I have never watched it. I was recently attacked for calling this series overrated. But you know I didn’t actually mean the series itself, I meant the fans of this show do too much. They are always everywhere with the “GOT” tag. And I’m thinking give me a big break please. Well, about 57 out of the 63 people that voted had G.O.T as their number 1 must watch. Maybe I would get the hype when I eventually watch it, I’ve been advised to on several occasions but I would accept this advice this time and put it on my To-Do List for next month.
13 REASONS WHY: At least I’ve watched this one. I think this is quite sad as the movie plot kept making me wake up to a sudden reality that what was portrayed could actually be happening. I’m not here to do review, I’d just ask you to watch this one if you have not. It’s about Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them.
STRANGER THINGS: When this name appeared and a lot of people voted this too I thought 2 out of 10 that’s not so bad after all. I mean, I’ve watched this too. But I must confess this is one of the weirdest things I‘ve watched ever ever. Like the demorgodon and all the SCIFI stuff left me crept out at a stage but this is a must watch, I can boldly attest to it. The story starts with 4 kids Mike, Will, Dustin, and Lucas kids playing in an attic and then it was time for 3 of them to go home all 3 got home but Will mysteriously vanishes as he got home he was“kidnapped” by a “strange thing” however no one knows what happened to him and this leads to a frantic search for him by his mother, his brother, his friends and the police chief. In the process of the search secrets are uncovered: of a government lab, portals to another world, and weird monsters. And then a strange little girl comes into the picture, and she claims she’s running away from “bad men.”
ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK: Well this one left me guessing, But why i was intrigued by it is that it is actually a true life story that follows a memoir of a real Piper Kerman who went to prison. I liked this show at the beginning but I’m not so sure how I felt about this one too many women touching women put me off a bit, so I stopped watching but beyond that it has a great story line and shows what actually happens in an American female prison. The story revolves around piper Chapman who was sentenced to prison for money laundering. So many things happened in the prison including Piper finding an ally in the head of the kitchen “Red” and rebuilding her relationship with former girlfriend Alex.
BOYS OVER FLOWERS: I watched the last 2 episodes of this so this should also pass as series I’ve watched, I remember calling it boys before flowers a lot of times but no it’s Boys Over Flowers. Korean series can be very nice and I think this one made so many waves and I think it’s a cliche story line for Korean series but it’s still nice. The story follows A Poor girl that attends the elite school and is bullied by the leader of F4 (the four richest boys). He goes on to become attracted to her, but she likes his friend. The End.
BEING MARY JANE: I have not watched it too but I will it is apparently a story of Mary Jane Paul who is successful in every way and still keeps pushing harder to get more. She is a made cable news anchor, has a closest stuffed with designer clothes, a nice car and has a lovely home, Yet she feels something is amiss. Mary Jane wants to start a family of her own to share life’s greatest gifts, she discovers who she really is and the people who help define her.
GREY’S ANATOMY: There was a tie for this one and being Mary Jane. Grey’s anatomy is one series I’ve heard a lot about but I’ve never watched, please don’t judge me and no I don’t live in a cave. I think I’d actually watch this before any other series I haven’t seen because I saw a Scene of Grey’s anatomy recently and I fell in love with it. It’s a medically inclined series and from what I’ve heard, it has a lot of stories about different people facing diverse life challenges. And I bet there is no dull moment hence the success of the show as they on their 15th season.
NARUTO: I don’t watch animations but more than 23 people recommended this and I decided to read this. So I guess it should be nice. It’s a story of Naruto Uzumaki, an adolescent ninja, struggles as he searches for recognition and dreams of becoming the strongest ninja and leader of the village.
SKINNY GIRL IN TRANSIT: Save the best for last right.. Well, well, well, this is the only Nigerian series that made the list. This series had me falling in love from the onset, I don’t know if it was the funny ever dramatic tiwalade’s mum or the captivating personality of tiwalade or tiwalade’s sister that reminds me of how I love my big sister but would not stop taunting her. Every series had a flavor, from Fabrice the french black man to Mide the wonderful hunk. Oh lawd..This story just follows the typical Nigerian unmarried lady on the way to being 30 years. I won’t even give you a hint if you haven’t watched it just go and watch it.
So yes guys, that is the list.
