Season 3 of How To Get Away With Murder is coming to an end this week with a special two-hour finale. The winter finale already left us all breathless and I have the feeling that the same thing will happen in a few days. We all want to know what really happened the night Wes was killed but the episode we got to watch after the Christmas break are not helping.

I have to admit, as it usually happens when I watch this show, that I am extremely confused and I have absolutely no idea on who might have killed Annalise Keating’s favourite student. The only thing I am sure of is that Frank, Connor, and Nate, the three main suspects, are innocent. But who killed Wes then?

Reading the various reactions to the latest episodes on social media, I’ve come across different conspiracy theories regarding who might be the murderer. Some people don’t trust Meggie’s sketchy behaviour, most of all her trying to be friends with Laurel.Why would you want to be friends with the girl your late ex-boyfriend cheated on you with? No one would do that.
Other people, on the other hand, still find Connor incredibly suspicious. In the last episode, we saw Connor trying to reanimate Wes in Annalise’s house before the fire. But why would he want to reanimate the guy if he was the one who killed him? It is true that he’s been acting weird and heartless but I strongly believe that was just some sort of defence for all the bad things that are happening to him and his friends.

I personally can’t wait to finally find out what led to Wes’ death and to admire once again the genius of the producers that created this whole incredible story.

Shameless US: Mickey Milkovich Deserved Better.

“Shameless US” is now on its 8th season and a lot of things have happened in the series during this time. The creators of the show have made good decisions at times but on some occasions, they made some of the worst choices ever. An example? Sending Mickey Milkovich to jail, let him break out and run away to Mexico.

In his early days in the series, Mickey is a cold hearted, tough trouble maker. His family is even more dysfunctional than the Gallagher so he always has to invent new illegal ways to earn money to live. He is reckless, selfish and violent. But this is just what he wants other people to think of him, it is just a facade that he puts on to look dangerous and scary.

This mask he wears all the time starts to fall, disappear when Ian manages to win his heart. Mickey doesn’t want to admit, mostly to himself, who he truly is. He doesn’t accept being gay. He hides. He suffers because of his homophobe, abusive dad.

In all the hustle that is his life, he finds his safe haven, Ian. Thanks to their relationship Mickey changes. His character develops: he is now caring, selfless and incredibly supportive. During this time Mickey becomes fans’ favourite character as we all got to see his true colours. It is right at this point that producers decided to cut Mickey off from the show sending him to prison.

Fans didn’t appreciate Mickey’s exit, mostly because of the beautiful relationship between Ian and Mickey but also because Mickey’s character is a great example of how it is important to accept who we really are even if the world tells us that is wrong.

Best Foreign TV Series (outside of the US & UK)

It is not a secret that American and British TV series are the most popular amon audiences. We never hear much about other countries’ shows, so here’s my top 3 favourite foreign TV series!

  • Les Revenants

In a little town in the French Alps, some members of the community have to face a scary reality when dead people they once knew and loved are brought back to life without an apparent explanation. Les Revenants (“The Returned”) is a French drama that I recommend to whoever enjoys TV Series filled with mystery and gloomy atmospheric vibes.

If you want to know more about “Les Revenants” you can watch the series trailer here.

  • Fisica o Quimica:

Looking at the title Fisica o Quimica(“Physics or Chemistry”)  you might think this Spanish show is something that your science teacher might want to watch. Well, that’s not the case. Throughout 7 seasons, the series tells the story of a group of students and their teachers. It is everything you would expect from a teen drama: love, friendship, bullying, are just a few of the many interesting topics the series deals with.

If you can bear the low-quality video and the bad early 2000’s haircuts, “Fisica o Quimica” should be on your list of TV Series.

  • Skam

“Skam” (“Shame ) is a young adult TV series about a group of Norwegian teenagers and their lives. It had an incredible success in the last months of 2016. The series has become more and more popular on the internet during its third season which focused mainly on Isak and his love story with Even.

You can follow the characters of the show on Instagram and  Facebook as if they were actual people. I find this a great and engaging idea!

The Reboot Mania

“Game of Thrones”, “The Walking Dead”, “The  Big Bang Theory”. These are just a few of the major TV hits that have been produced in the last decade. Despite the excellent quality of today’s TV Series, some of us really can’t let go of old shows we grew up with in the late 90’s, early 2000’s. In fact, television is going through a proper reboot/revival era with the production of several prequels, spin-offs and sequels.

The greatest revival of 2016 was without a doubt Gilmore Girls: A Year in The Life“. Public opinion was rather split in half after the four new episodes aired: some people thought they weren’t just as good as the original seasons while others, as myself, perceived the four hours special as the right way to show how the characters’ lives changed during these years.

Lately, there have been a lot of rumours going around about many series that might come back to the little screen with new episodes in the next months or years. It has already been confirmed that The CW is been working on a prequel of  Charmed(1998-2006). The network has already ordered a script in which three new witches will try to defeat demons and evil warlocks in the 1970’s.

FOX, as part of this TV’s revival trend, is bringing back “Prison Break” with ten new episodes that will take place a few years after the end of the show. Both stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are set to come back as lead characters.

Other TV cults that we are going to see again soon are: “Will and Grace”, “Twin Peaks”, “Star Trek”, and hopefully “Veronica Mars”.
