Life Lessons Learned from Orange Is The New Black

I confess I’m four years so embarrassingly late to the saga of Orange Is The New Black. An avid follower of many other series, I don’t know how I managed to blindly skip this one. But since getting a brand new curved smart television (which really is just the same as any regular flat screen television, except it’s curved and way more awesome), I’ve been watching the tube a lot. You have to know, I’m not much of a TV person. I find my mini laptop suffices (although if you saw the size of it, you’d probably recommend I switch to a more sizeable machine). But now that Netflix is literally a click away on the big screen, I’ve been on it for much more than I should admit. To kick things off, OITNB is pure remarkable. The plot is no ordinary plot; the script deftly, poignantly, and beautifully written; the characters so fitting they are the actors or the actors are them; all in all the sui generis spectacle deserves all the success it …

22 Life Lessons Learned from Dr. Mindy Lahiri

We’ve been waiting and lingering. We’ve been nothing short of devoted and loyal. We’ve also been extremely patient, considering our life has been put on hold for the last few months in anticipation of what has served as our source of wisdom, sageness, and basically daily bread. And now our reward has finally arrived! To usher in Season 3 of The Mindy Project, we want to do a little recap slash make a little trip down memory lane to revisit and relive past adventures, to see just how far our favorite Mindy has come…or maybe not. But either way, we love her for her quick wit, fun wardrobe, and monstrous appetite, and not to mention her perfect apartment. For a little diversion and to fill you up with solid sagacity (after all, you are taking advice from a DOCTOR, and for free!), here are 22 life lessons we can learn from her: 1. Being brutally honest and not feeling bad about it. 2. There’s no shame in loving what the rest of the world loves. 3. It’s smart to plan your own …

Arrow TV Show Review

BACKGROUND ​I stumbled upon Arrow while browsing for new TV shows to watch. To my surprise, it turned out to be great. It’s based on the DC Comic character Green Arrow, and the two share very similar (almost identical) background story, characters, and enemies. Green Arrow is basically an archer version of Batman. However, this re-imagined character set in today’s time has its share of deviations from the original version. After all, the original Green Arrow comic book was first published in 1941. SYNOPSIS (Warning: contains spoilers) The story is about a billionaire playboy Oliver Queen who was stranded on an unknown island after his yacht sunk during a pleasure cruise, claiming the lives of everyone on board including his father (Robert Queen). On that island, Oliver learned to survive, and under the guidance of a notebook left by his father, discovered that his hometown Starling City had become one of the most corrupted cities in the US. He swore to return one day to bring justice to those responsible. And after five long years, Oliver …
