So, since it took me forever to compose my blog posts I decided to do something less time-consuming with my TV series recommendations and therefore I tweet them now:
Update: the winners have been announced.
The voting on the 2014 EWwy Awards is split up throughout a gallery with further informationen on the nominees. For the lazy ones (like me) I added the direct links to each category:
Release dates for every series I’m excited for (and yes, it’s a lot of them):
About a Boy (season 2)
Tuesday, October 14th, NBC
American Dad (season 11)
Thursday, October 30th, TBS
Arrow (season 3)
Wednesday, October 8th, The CW
My thoughts concerning the new and returned summer TV series:
Crossbones (new series)
The first 2 episodes were okay, John Malkovich was as great as expected, but somehow I can’t convince myself to watch episode 3.
The Last Ship (new series)
This show is absolutely awesome. A global pandemic has already extinguished more than half of the world’s population. The crew of the USS Nathan James, a guided missile destroyer, tries to find a cure and faces incredible obstacles in every single episode. There’s not too much action in The Last Ship, which some of you might have feared, an appropriate amount of military stuff and a great dynamic between the main characters (played by Eric Dane and Adam Baldwin).
In my opinion the playground section of tympanus.net is one of the most progressive and inspirational sources for web designers.
The best thing is that they don’t just write articles on new animation techniques or how to make user interfaces better, they provide demos for every post and you can also download the source code.
Be sure to check it out, you won’t regret it.
One episode into binge watching season 2 of Orange Is the New Black I have to write this post to inform you that you should MOST DEFINITELY watch this series. Season 2 is available on Netflix since yesterday. Yes, the whole season! And the episode titles are pretty promising: Hugs Can Be Deceiving, Comic Sans, Appropriately Sized Pots, Little Mustachioed Shit.
After my kind of depressing last post on TV series here comes a happy one with the dates for returning and new shows.
Crossbones (new series)
Friday, May 30th, NBC
Pirates, John Malkovich, and therefore worth a try.
Defiance (season 2)
Thursday, June 19th, Syfy
Between the two seasons 5 minisodes titled The Lost Ones were shown on syfy.com (watch on youtube).
Doctor Who (season 8)
Saturday, August 23rd, BBC
The first one with Peter Capaldi as The Doctor! *eek*
Whenever we viewers get to vote for anything regarding TV series I’m totally in. If you also like doing that there’s good news for you: from now on I will post every poll, award, etc..
First up are EW.com’s 5th Annual Season Finale Awards. Favourite answer: “Something on ‘Hannibal,’ no doubt” in the category Most Disturbing Image.
Update: Voting has ended, you can find the winners here.
It’s one of the websites where I constantly find inspiration: designwoop.com This website has tutorials on image effects, web design and even coding. It also has collections of WordPress Themes and good web design, but best of all design resources like free fonts, PSDs and code snippets.
The last few months were pretty sad for TV series junkies all over the world.
An enormous amount of shows got cancelled including some of my all-time favourites and some really good new ones. But since we’re supposed to always look on the bright side of life I also included the renewed series.
Edit: I excluded the summer series and posted them in What to expect in summer TV 2014.
