General Information:

Screenwriter: Terada Toshio, Iwamura Masako
Genre: Drama
No. of episodes: 10
Origin: Japan
Original run: July 18, 2011 – September 19, 2011

Review:

This series is based on a manga with the same title. The reason I decided to review this is because many people don’t understand what I.S. is or what it means and this show explains it in an amazing way. I.S stands for intersexual, as the title of the show says Neither a male or a female.They are born with a gender issue… I don’t wanna go into details they explain it better in the show. It is an amazing show and awesome plot its different from the manga in some ways but the idea is the same which is addressing the IS issue. I highly recommend it it will give you a better understanding about the issue. This show will surely give you a different view to the world… I know it did for me.

Overall Rate: 8/10

Vikings First Impression

20130305-194424.jpg

Created by: Michael Hirst
Genre: Historical Drama

Today I’ve watching this TV series called Vikings. The show is pretty amazing so far. It’s brutal, and historical of course, that’s why I liked it. The story seems interesting, it’s about a Viking who goes his own way to raid and explore the west. The first season of the show is around 9 episode, which would be interesting. If you like historical shows, I say you should check it out.

Here is a screen short from the show:

Review:

Underemployed was kinda interesting at first. I was like awesome show, though half way through it got messy. I didn’t like the direction it was headed. Despite it all, I like the friendship between the characters. There was a message in the show that I like, which is “never give up on your dream”. This show isn’t a must watch… If you have sometime to waste check it out. You might like it.

Review:

This show is incredibly funny. I haven’t laughed this much for a while now. There is a little action in the show since the main characters Asahi and Nami are being chased. The show is very well directed. The story is very well done as well… Like its not just a silly comedy. There is a story there. I won’t comment on the romance… The show kept me interested, it never got boring. Though at some pointed you would go like “Seriously?” Then laugh. It’s amazing. If your looking for a good laugh that’s the show to watch!

Review:

Quartet is a very interesting show. I though about watching the show because of the main character (Fukuda Saki) I’m a fan of her work. The story was very dramatic, and I loved the action there. It’s like the characters are so real. I also liked the ending which adds extra points for the show. I liked the show very much and I totally recommend it.

Overall Rate: 9.5/10

First Impression: The Mob Doctor

20121011-173457.jpg

First impression:

Since I’m a fan of hospital/doctor drama I had to check out The Mob Doctor. This is not technically a first impression since the show is 4 episodes in. Though I have to say that the show is very enjoyable. I specially liked how in each episode there is a part of her past… And how deep she got involved with the mobs… The show is very interesting!!
