Books are like alcohol. Once you get addicted to it, you cannot stop reading it. It is actually a good way of addiction and none wants to get rid of it in a good way. Life without book is like life without oxygen. But, off late there are good books which are actually really addictive especially trilogies and can’t get rid of it. Here are the list of the following:
1. Lord of Rings:
The ‘Lord of Rings’ series is a universal and all embracing tale of fantasy, myth. It is a book which is bridled by the world of magic. Tolkien- the writer very descriptively narrates beautifully depicting Middle-Earth and the journey that the fellowships take and not only the book is full of magic and fantasy but also the dead language used by the author itself carries the readers to the far away land to feel it’s “Avatar’’. It has also the subtle message portrayed by the author that how the power of Magic was replaced by human dominance. Tolkien makes this “Lord of Rings’’ a universal and all-embracing tale and a magnificent efficient by him to incorporate- an epic tale of love, friendship, heroism- a just celebrated classic of all genres.
2. Harry Potter Series:
Harry potter book series became phenomenon among every children read list universally. It has held a different place in the hearts of all the children since its very inception. The character added by J.K Rowling is almost the same to any other ordinary human being and has given a realistic look and features and can be pictured very well how Harry looked like. J.K Rowling’s brilliance of such combinations like magic, love, pain, revenge, friendship, loss of loved ones and also sacrifice. Nothing falls short of in this Potter series. The writer has very well weaved every detail such that it suits the mystically created wizardly land at its best. The moral lessons are even more subtly cloaked with magic and with mystery enough to instill in the hearts and minds of the young readers.
3. The World of Hunger Games Trilogy:
A book with a dystopian picture of love, poverty, kindness…a book which strikes a chord of emotions, as if you are on a ride. The Hunger games series is the main attraction among young readers. The ambience created by this book so well created as if one is literally dwelling in the world of fantasy. Katiness a strong protagonist in this trilogy shows how she solves her one problem and takes charge of her own life, struggling with her emotions between two boys. Katiness as a strong protagonist which no reader will want to forget. She herself is in this game- as a hunter. Each year, the twelve districts sends two representatives, a girl and a boy to participate in this hunger game until the loved one will be chosen until each district will be left with the sacrifice of another. This book has a subtle line to imply: Nothing better comes without a sacrifice.
4. Game of Thrones:
It is fantasy series and the characters in this fantasy literature may be a little bit baffling. All set in the world very akin to medieval history. The complete story is a complete mix and match of horror- because ‘Death’ is the commonplace in this book. The story has and can be seen from much perspective and each character in the book keeps changing giving a different taste- a taste that will keep on lingering on reader’s mind. ‘Game of Throne’ writer has very wittingly made the book full of fantasy and realistic nothing short of mind and numbingly beautiful.
5. Chronicles of Narnia:
A book which reflects the struggle between good and evil. The book full of fantasy, fun, imaginary characters like the lion talking and is the main centre of attention. The author carries us to world of evil and bad and it is a book which every children wants to read in his/her childhood days.
1990s and 2000s saw an insurgency in a number of failed sitcoms. Many of them were bad from the start and got cancelled after just a few episodes. Here are 10 worst sitcoms of the 1990s and 2000s.
1. Joey (2004):
It is irritating to see actors and fans try to revive something that died and disappeared. Joe Tribbiani was famous on the sitcom Friends. He develops his own show, Joey where he moves to LA to develop his movie career. The first season was good, but as we see in many sitcoms which run too long, characters get boring and story-lines run out. It had no chance when competing with American Idol and was cancelled in March of 2006.
2. Accidentally on Purpose (2009):
Jenna Elfman did not click with viewers as she did on Dharma and Greg. Her humor was drier and it was not as appealing to watch an older character use her charm. Having mixed reviews and scoring 49/100 on Metacritic, the show was cancelled after 18 episodes.
3. Saved by the Bell: The New Class (1993)
Producer Peter Engel was pushing this franchise just a bit overboard. I just cannot understand how the show ran for 7 seasons. The franchise was ruined after the sixth season. Screech was no longer funny and the appeal Mr. Belding once had in 1980s and 1990s was gone. I think producers should have stopped production after the wedding of Zack and Kelly. It would have been the happily ever after story we all wanted to see happen.
4. Michael Richards Show (2000):
This sitcom was about a private detective who gets things done in an eccentric way. Richards tried to play a role that was different than his Seinfeld character Kramer. He deeply made a fool of himself here and the show ran its course for a pitiful 9 episodes.
5. Baby Bob (2000):
This sitcom was about a spy baby who could talk. We are adults and unless this is a cartoon, talking babies are not really funny to watch. The first week, the sitcom rated 15th on the charts. The show was cancelled after 11 aired episodes.
2010 saw the release of either another season of a sitcom or a whole new sitcom itself. Here are some of the top 10 Television Series of 2010.
1. How I Met Your Mother
The 6th season of How I Met Your Mother was released in the month of September this year. This series does not stop keeping its viewing happy at all. How i met your mother is still going strong with strong number of viewers as they continue to deliver this comedy filled show.
This season sees the addition of another constant cast to the already fun group. Jennifer Morrison gets a permanent placement this season. The season 6 is full of surprises and laughs and takes this fun show to the top of the list.
2. The Big Bang Theory
Not far behind How I Met Your Mother is The Big Bang Theory, a show about 4 science geeks and a hot feminine neighbour. This famous comedy sitcom was renewed for its fourth season and it premiered on the 4th of November. The Big Bang Theorys fourth season is considered the best among all its seasons as the comedy reaches another level.
The Big Bang Theory is a fun sitcom to watch with an Indian and 3 american science geeks as friends who have a hot neighbour included in their group.
3. The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead is another new television series that was released in the year 2010. It is an American post apocalyptic horror television series that was premiered on the AMC network on October.
The first season has only 6 episodes and by that itself was voted the best new series in 2010. AMC has renewed the series for another thirteen episodes and will be aired on 2011. The Walking Dead is altogether a great horror series.
Nikita is an all new American television drama that was released in the month of September. It airs on the CW Television Network. Nikita is about a spy and assassin who has gone rogue after finding out the true colours of the government agency she worked for. Nikita is on a mission to bring down Division, the corrupt government agency.
Nikita stars Maggie Q as Nikita, Shane West as Michael and Lyndsy Fonseca as Alex who is Nikitas spy within division. Nikitas episodes become better and better and so does the action and plot.
The famous teen drama was renewed for a third season this year. This year saw the introduction of many recurring characters in this series, which means more stories and more drama. There are many twists and turns in this season with Ryan becoming a dad, Annies mom working for Jen as an assistant, Ted turning gay, Naomis rape, etc..
90210 has won many teen choice awards this year, making this the best teen show of 2010.
This is a small surprise for all the fans of One Tree Hill – a compilation of the Top 10 Brooke and Lucas Moments. As you all know, they didn’t end up together in the later seasons, but still their relationship was one of the strongest I’ve ever seen. And if you happen to be one of those who haven’t heard about them or One Tree Hill, you can still enjoy how one great love evolves.
