Since I last left you there have been some new renewals and cancellations on the list. Along with new information as to when your favorite mid-season shows will be returning, some will be returning for their final seasons. Interested to find out more then keep on reading.
Among the Fall’s newest shows we saw the renewal and full season order of FOREVER, along with the cancellations of SELFIE, A TO Z, and BAD JUDGE. It was no shocker for the cancelled shows but FOREVER was a welcome surprise in which we get to see more of our favorite Medical Examiner Dr. Henry Morgan.
I just saw the extended trailer for The AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON movie that aired last night during an episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and I fell in love, I am mentally booking my ticket to go watch this movie abroad not going to even bother waiting for it in Kuwait in fear it might get chopped up!
Why can’t they just make a TV Show for the AVENGERS I would love 22 hours of that every year!
No strings on me! Ultron is one freaky scary dude!!
I usually give an update once a month but I thought the recent news of the full season orders/pick-ups of our beloved new Fall TV 2014 shows deserved a post of their own. You see last week we were given a green light for shows like HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, BLACK-ISH, THE FLASH, and JANE THE VIRGIN. This week we saw the cancellation of MANHATTAN LOVE STORY and the full season orders of MADAM SECRETARY, STALKER, SCORPION, NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, and THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA.
I personally am happy with how things played out but would have expected MULANEY to be the first show cancelled this season due to its insanely bad everything.
- MADAM SECRETARY has been picked up for a full season by CBS
- STALKER has been picked up for a full season by CBS
- SCORPION has been picked up for a full season by CBS
- NCIS: NEW ORLEANS has been picked up for a full season by CBS
- THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA has been picked up for a full season by NBC

If you are like most shoppers, you are always looking to save a little money, especially when it comes to tech purchases. According to GoRave, the average household spends more than $1,600 on consumer electronic devices annually. Oftentimes, getting the best deal simply requires choosing the right time to make your purchase. Here’s how you can figure out when is best to buy that new piece of tech you’ve had your eye on.
Video Games and Consoles
The best time of the year to save money on a video game varies. It’s best to wait several weeks after a game is released. Demand is always highest right when a game hits the market which leads to inflated price tags. According to Kotaku, many disc-based games will see their first price drop after just two weeks of sitting on shelves. Consoles are harder to predict timing. Price cuts seem arbitrary, and in some cases, infuriating if you bought your console the day before a price cut is announced. The holiday season is a common time for video game and console prices to drop in price. Give yourself an edge by signing up for Black Friday and Cyber Monday email lists to receive alerts on upcoming holiday tech sales.The best deals of the year on consoles often surround the holidays, especially a year or two after their initial release.
For many electronics, the best sales start when inventories are at their lowest and the current shopping season is ending, which is the case for laptops. April is usually the best time to grab a deal on laptops because so many new models are announced during this month each year. This is because April is the beginning of the Japanese fiscal year, and many manufacturers and developers of laptops are based in Japan. These companies don’t want to be saddled with old inventory when new models are on their way to the shelves. Laptops are often even cheaper in April than they are during back-to-school season. July could yield good prices as well but waiting until then could mean the model you want is out of stock.
Smartphones and Mobile Devices
The most difficult devices to predict price drops for are smartphones and similar mobile devices — the original iPhone launched at $599, but in just two months dropped $200. In some cases, price drops on smartphones occur right after tech conventions where new models and technological advances are announced. In this case, it pays to keep up-to-date with the industry. With so many manufacturers creating smartphones around the world, tracking the possible factors that might lead to a price drop is nearly impossible for the average consumer. When looking to score a deal on a smartphone, the best strategy is to shop around and find three or four models that would suit your needs. Monitor them each for a price drop. In the end, the best time of the year to buy a new smartphone is when you need it.
Now that we are almost at an end with the month of October, I think it safe to compile the news spread on the web regarding the renewals and cancellations of your favorite shows. The new Fall Season has officially kicked in its full gears, some of the new shows have received full season orders while others received an added episode count. Up until this minute no new show has been cancelled but then again, I think we still have time.
The following new shows have all received full season orders: HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, BLACK-ISH, GOTHAM, THE FLASH, and JANE THE VIRGIN. While FOX has decided to cut down MULANEY’s episode order to only 13 episodes instead of 16 episodes. It has also been reported that ABC has requested more scripts for SELIFE, FOREVER, and MANHATTAN LOVE STORY. While NBC has requested more episodes for THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA, and CONSTANTINE. And before airing the first episode NBC has decided to pull the plug on Krysten Ritter’s comedy MISSION CONTROL.
I have started to notice how insanely unproductive I have become on my blog and how I pretty much update my Instagram account faster than anything else. Twitter is linked to my Instagram so it gets the updates as well. In the past few weeks I have started reviewing the Fall TV 2014 shows and posting my thoughts about them in a very short and precise manner. I found everyone’s interaction to be insanely awesome and most of the time it just made me smile thinking of how many people I influenced with my decisions.
I am hoping to incorporate some of those updates I post on Instagram here but in the meantime be sure to follow me on the social networks to stay constantly up to date with me.
I know it has been a few days since I completed my Apple’s Special Event post, but better late than never. Apple held an event last Thursday, October 16th in which they announced the new iPad Air 2 and the slightly refreshed iPad mini 3 (which after consideration finds only two updates and that is a new colors and Touch ID, otherwise everything is exactly the same as the iPad mini 2, therefore it’s not smart to purchase.
