Necessary Roughness

A Long Island psychotherapist whose personal life unravels when she finds her husband cheating. Diving fully into her work, Dr. Dani Santino soon finds herself as the most sought-after therapist for high-profile clients. Athletes, entertainers, politicians and others living in the spotlight clamor for her unique brand of tough love therapy during their moments of crisis. Although her career is reenergized, it wreaks havoc on her life as a newly minted single mom of two teenagers

This show is light and funny as it follows Dr Dani and her trials working with sports stars. Her kids are naughty and sneaky, her husband's an ass, and her mum is completely psycho. But the team? Now they have issues that are really fun to watch her tackle whilst trying to deal with her obvious attraction to the team's assistant coach, and the less obvious attraction to Nico, a guy with a huge level of mystery and secrecy and a past that millimetre by millimetre is slowly revealed.

I really like this show , it's light and upbeat and i really recommend it.

On the run from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant college-dropout, finds himself a job working with Harvey Specter, one of New York City's best lawyers.

Suits has just finished its first season and I have to say I'm really loving this one, already picked up for a second season this one is looking good and not just coz I think both of them are hot. Suits is one of those shows that you watch because you want to see more. You want to watch the triangle forming in mike's life. You want to see Harvey kick ass. Lewis is whiny and bossy which is amusing and Donna's has mysterious power. Suits has a pull to it that makes it one of those shows I watch first.



A young woman on the run from the mob poses as her wealthy twin sister to try and evade them, but soon discovers that her sister has a price on her head as well.

Having watched the pilot of this i find myself intrigued to see the rest of this show. The first episode was very intense and packed full of plot and information and i'm intrigued to watch the rest of it unfold more slowly. Sarah Michelle Geller was incredible playing both roles in a way that makes me really glad she's back on tv because she is an amazing actress. Playing on duplicity you have to remember not to assume one is the good twin and one the bad but instead consider the moral ambuigity. Plus the guys in this are pretty hot so i'm keen to watch on

New Girl

This show stars Zooey Deschanel as Jessica "Jess" Day, a well-liked, bubbly, and adorable woman in her late 20s who is trying to get over her surprise breakup with her model boyfriend. She eventually finds a new place to stay when she moves in with three single guys: Nick, a bartender; Schmidt, a professional and modern-day casanova; and Coach, a former athlete turned trainer. Rounding out this unlikely bunch is Jessica's street-smart model friend Cece. Together, this group of friends try to help Jess learn a lot about love, life and mostly about herself, while at the same time learn a lot about themselves
Having watched the pilot of this I have to say this is going to be a really good show. Jess is adorkable and really funny, randomly singing to herself and the guys whilst vaguely one-dimensional are going to be pretty interesting to watch develop into rounded characters. Really funny with moments that were priceless. Going to be looking out for this one :)



Dr Lee Rosen leads a team of "Alphas", human beings with enhanced abilities due to differences in their brain structure: Gary Bell, a highly functioning autistic with an ability to process information that rivals most computers; Bill Harken, a former FBI agent who can amp up his "fight or flight" reflex, giving him extraordinary strength for a brief period of time; Cameron Hicks, a former Marine sharpshooter with supernatural balance and aim; Nina Theroux, a beautiful woman who can reprogram other people's minds to do as she bids; and Rachel Pirzad, a sheltered Persian girl who can intensify one sense at the expense of the others. However, with said powers comes a price - for Gary, autism which makes him a child for all intents and purposes; for Harken, severe anger issues that cost him his job and family; for Rachel, struggling to overcome her parents shame at her "illness"; and Nina, never really knowing how those close to her actually feel. In any case, they've all come together for the common good with Rosen as their mentor, teaching them to further control their abilities with each passing day
Now this show is towards the end of its first season and I have to say I really like it. The characters could use more depth but a second season could allow for this expansion. Gary is my favorite with his issues and  attitude, he can be quite funny and has a pretty cool ability. The team have to deal with their own issues, deal with the government who want to turn them into a tag-and-bag group for collecting and 'dealing' with Alphas, as well as dealing with Alphas who wont or cant control their gifts, and Red Flag, an organisation that seem to have their fingers in every pot. Its a show that is fast and actiony and I have to say one I shall pray for a second season too. The characters have interesting flaws and their interactions are what makes this show one worth watching :)

Mind changed :P

So I promised a two parter about the shows I watch but honestly i've changed my mind. Over the next couple of weeks there are a stack of new shows coming out and I've decided to kind of review them. I'll be starting with shows that are in the middle/towards the end of their first season and moving up to the newest ones.

So far I aim to talk about:
Necessary Roughness
New Girl
Secret Circle

Well do you?

Do you ever want to just say fuck you all and walk away from everything? Leave all your responsibilities and the binding chains behind and just walk away?

Fuck this all

I'm freaking out. I think i'm gunna be poor. Don't wanna move, don't wanna downsize. Feel like everything spiralling away from me. My mum's broke. I want to help but it's just going to cost me so much. Wish I could just afford to move out but frankly i cant. Life sucks so much. I wish things were so different, just feel like crying. I guess I'm used to a certain lifestyle and the idea of having it ripped away from me sucks. Have to get used to wanting more than I can have, this fucking sucks.

I know this sounds like the whining of a rich brat who's parents suddenly went broke, very cliche. And yeah I know I'm old enough that i should maybe start supporting myself, but whilst i'm quite domesticated theres noway i can afford it. I just don't need this stress, and neither does she. My mum is way too sick to have to deal with this. And now im scared all the time. Scared it's going to send her into a huge spiral, make her worse which'd cost her more which'd stress her more! If she was healthy she wouldnt have to pay so much for her shrinks, she could hold a job, she could be sociable and happy. But she's i guess i just have to deal. I can't deal with this.
