Singing in the holidays

December 15th, 2009

Christmas is getting closer and closer and now we even have lots and lots of snow. Perfect conditions for us moviegeeks :) Christmas is also the theme for most series now, so far Bones has the best one this year. Spoiler alert! Only Bones can blow up Santa and strip Booth and still get away with a hell of an episode. This is a good time to catch up with the series one has missed during the year or go for a rerun. So today I thought I’d give a TV-series tips for the holidays.

Glee is a series I’ve fallen in love with the last couple of weeks. I didn’t know that much about it when it started airing on TV4 in Sweden some time ago, but decided to give the pilot a chance. And well, I’ve been stuck ever since. It’s no question why this show has gotten so successful, mixing humour and music it makes you happy every week. Glee is in no way like, let’s say High School Musical. Yes the series is about a glee club and there’s a lot of singing and dancing but they’ve tuned it down and made it more schmear realistic in a way without losing the charm.

In essence Glee is about a Spanish teacher who takes over the schools glee club and tries to return it to it’s former glory. However the schools cheerleading coach doesn’t like to share the spotlight and tries to stop them. Several funny and adorable characters and some complicated relationships makes this show the feel-good series of the year. What really got me to become a gleek was the humour and the somewhat unexpected funny dialogues. Just check out this clip (not so good quality) and give Glee a chance, even if you don’t usually like musicals. Season one will be out on DVD soon and until then you can catch it on TV4 in Sweden every Thursday at 21.00.

I will go to the animal shelter and get you a kitty cat. I will let you fall in love with that kitty cat. And then on some dark, cold night I will steal away into your home and punch you in the face!

emily-david-bonesIt has now been two years since I became addicted to the series Bones, and now FOX has promised us two more seasons! If you haven’t seen any Bones eps you should really start now. I loved season 3 (and season 1 and 2), with the whole Gormagon story following season 3. I didn’t like the endning however, and I wasn’t sure they would be able to bring back the series with 4th season beeing as good as season 3. But they did!

Season 4 had some of the most funny, thrilling and disgusting episodes so far. The 4th season brought back some old characters, like the Gravedigger in ep 13 and Dr Gordon Whyatt (played by Stephen Fry), and a lot of new characters keeping the series fresh but not losing anything of what we all love with the series. But just like season 3, I’m not sure I liked the cliffhanger in season 4. However  I have all the faith in the world that they will bring back a season 5 and 6 at least as good as the previous, if not better ;)

For those of you who haven’t seen Bones, I guess you have no idea what I’m talking about. Bones is a crime/drama/romance/comedy series staring Emily Deschanel as  Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan and David Boreanaz as FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. Together they solve murders with the help of the rest of the crew at the Jeffersonian by examinating the victims bones (and what else is left of the bodies). The chemistry between Brennan and Booth, and the rest of the cast, is hard to find in any other crimeschmear. You just fall in love with all of them.

Be sure to check out Bones, why not a rainy day this summer, and for those of you who like me already love the series we’ll just have to watch reruns until the new season comes this fall. :)
