More Summer Shows: The Newsroom, etc.

July 3, 2012  |  TV

It seems that this summer most networks have stepped up their summer show schedules and one show that has stood out (well one of a few that is) happens to be Aaron Sorkin’s “The Newsroom” it is a show that I see as “THE BEST SHOW EVER!” in a completely different category than “Game of Thrones” and “The Borgias” of course.

The Newsroom

Airing: Sundays (Premiered June 24)

Genre: Drama (60 minutes)

Briefly: Brought to you by HBO this show centers around the life of a cable news anchor (Jeff Daniels) Will McAvoy, his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer) who also happens to be his ex girlfriend Mackenzie McHale, his newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel, and Olivia Munn) and their big boss (Sam Waterston).  Will’s life gets turned upside down when his “Night News” team disappears and his boss surprises him by bringing back his ex-girlfriend Mackenzie McHale as the new EP.  You see the genius that takes place in building a news show and what factors into it.

What I loved about it, is that this is really good TV, the quality of the dialogue the scenes they all inspire you to think to sit there in awe of everything, unlike most shows out there (read: Reality TV Shows & Slap-stick Comedies) this show gets you thinking most of the time.  Since I work in the news business this kind of tackles the other side, the TV News segment rather than the journalism.  In short, if you love behind the scene shows such as “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip Boulevard” also an Aaron Sorkin show along with “The West Wing” then you will appreciate the genius behind this show.

One more fact, with only two episodes that have aired this show has received it’s second season renewal and therefore will be coming back next year so you won’t have to worry about it getting cancelled anytime soon. [Source]

[TV] Unforgettable Saved & Other News

July 1, 2012  |  TV

Since I am a huge American TV Show fan and I like to tweet some of bits and pieces I read I thought to blog them and reach a wider audience.  Heck you might be one of those readers who actually watches one or two of these shows.  So let’s get on to it.

“Unforgettable,” the CBS drama series starring Poppy Montogomery as Detective Carrie Wells with a  gifted memory (in which she actually remembers everything that happens and can go back to revisit old memories as she still remembers them!) .  The only problem is that her sister was murdered and on that day and only that day she can’t seem to remember anything not even the guy who killed her sister.  So the show embarks on her journey to find out her sister’s killer.  This show was cancelled back in May but was saved recently as CBS has announced they are bringing it back as a Summer show for 2013. So fans rejoice because your favorite show is back! [Source]

Among other news is the following:

  • TNT’s “Dallas” has been renewed for a 2nd Season: The show which stars original “Dallas” members Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, and Linda Gray along with newcomers Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo, and Brenda Strong  has been performing so well in the ratings that a 15 episode Season 2 is set in the books for 2013.
  • TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles” has been renewed for a 4th Season: It has been reported that a 15 episode Season 4 has been ordered and we will get to see Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander back in the roles of Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles.
  • ABC’s “Rookie Blue” Renewed for Season 4: My personal favorite show has been given the green light to come back next summer with more episodes this show basically gives you a blend of “Grey’s Anatomy” but with cops! It’s about five rookie cops who graduated from the Police Academy and their adventures with the Canadian Police and real life basically.  It’s fun and amazing and I can’t help but feel excited every time I see it!
  • Showtime’s “Dexter” is ending after Season 8: Next year will be last year for “Dexter” as it was renewed last year for two years and it has been reported that the eighth will be it’s last.  So for those of you who enjoy the serial killer thriller I guess you have until next year to enjoy this series.

And with that I end this week’s edition of TV News, I know that one person will definitely enjoy this post and that is of course Marzouq since he’s my rival when it comes to watching TV Shows!

 

[Tech Sun] RIM is in Danger & Spray-on Batteries

July 1, 2012  |  Tech Sun

In this week’s Technology edition over at Al Watan Daily, the news covered a variety of events from the newly discovered spray-on batteries, RIM’s incredibly miserable situation, as well as the newly introduced products by Google.

Let’s start off with RIM otherwise known as the Blackberry maker.  They have entered a fateful stage in their professional journey in which they have lost more and more cash this year than any of their previous years.  Their loss was so drastic that they ended up firing 5,000 people as well as postponing all of their new devices until 2013.  That means no Blackberry 10 phones, that device they thought would save their behinds and make them popular again well nope it’s gone now. They are currently functioning on their cash reserve and you know that they will run out of that soon so let’s see how this whole thing plays out eventually. [Link]

Happy Social Media Day ’12

June 30, 2012  |  Greetings

It is officially June 30th and thus the third annual Social Media day!  You might be wondering what is “Social Media Day” well to answer your wandering mind, back in 2010 Mashable decided that since there was no official Social Media Day that they would dub June 30th as such a day.

 

socialmediadayjacqui

It is a day set to connect with other enthusiasts in your area by arranging meet ups.  Shortly afterwards the world heard the social cry and Canada officially named June 30th as Social Media Day.

If you are constantly found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Pintrest, Tumblr, Blogs, YouTube, Google+, and any social platform then today is a day for you.  It’s a celebration you have to partake in because seriously without those social platforms your life will be a boring potato.  So I’d like to wish you all a very “Happy Social Media Day” and keep on socializing digitally!
