What is Valentine’s day if we are not talking about Love? But today I’m not going to talk about some romantic love, instead I’d like to talk about something that I really love doing: watching some DVDs peacefully at home. A common conversation between me and my close friends:
Friends: “Where are you?”
Friends: “Watching DVDs?”
Me: “What else?”
And lately I’ve been hooked on two series, Breaking Bad and Entourage.
Breaking Bad is a bit dark drama series, and it is the story of Walter White,
a law-abiding high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He turns to a
life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine (Crystal Meth) with his former student, Jesse Pinkman, with the aim of securing his family’s financial future before he dies.
It is a very brilliant, high-quality, well-written and detailed film. If you love “Inception” or “Shawshank Redemption” then you are going to love this.
Entourage on the other hand, is much lighter than Breaking Bad. It is a comedy-drama series which chronicles the acting career of Vincent Chase, a young A-list movie star, and his childhood friends from Queens. The series focuses mainly on male friendship and real-life situations in modern-day Hollywood. Guys will love it as much as girls love Sex and the City. I really enjoy their sarcastic wit, especially coming from one of the characters, Ari Gold, the foul-mouthed yet lovable agent 🙂
p.s. Mark Wahlberg served as one of the show’s executive producers, and the story is loosely based on Wahlberg’s experiences as an up-and-coming film star.
Ok, I guess that’s all! Thank you for reading and Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you lovely people! Whether you are single or taken, treat yourself today – you deserve it! 🙂
