How I Spend My Saturday Nights: Dracula vs. The Order of the Dragon

Okay, so after I finished writing my previous post I realized, that I completely forgot about Dracula and Grimm which I watch every Saturday night with my family on Hulu. Errrt– hold up, wait a minute. I know what you’re thinking: “How could you forget about your Saturday nights like that?” And the answer is simple, I don’t know, I must’ve been drunk on Kombuchas. So to redeem myself, instead of doing a continuance of the first three posts I decided to do two separate posts on both of the shows in which I involve, you: My wonderful person-reading-this-post. :p This one will be Dracula and I will have you choose who you are rooting for in the fight against Dracula.   WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. If you haven’t been watching the show and still want to take part, just skip to the end to the poll.

First off: What is The Order of the Dragon?

Dracula-Episode-8-Recap-Come-To-Die-Order

According to Dracula’s wiki page the Order bares this definition: ” a monarchial order for selected nobility, created in Hungary in the late Middle Ages.  The Order required its initiates to defend the Cross and fight the enemies of Christianity. Dracula took up a military profession in the Order of the Dragon, defeating the Turks by impaling them and winning the name “Dracula” meaning “son of the dragon” or “son of the Devil.”

Who is Dracula?

Dracula - Season 1

A Vampire.

ku-xlarge

I’m kidding he’s not just a vampire. He’s a vampire with a grudge. He really hates the fact that the Order turned him into a vampire and killed his wife before his very eyes.

Then he turned into Alexander Grayson. Relations to the Graysons on Revenge? A total possibility.

Who is Van Helsing?

Dracula-44-550x366

A scientist whom is slowly but surely losing his mind after the Order killed his wife and child in a house fire because he no longer wanted to be apart of the Order.

He was not very happy about that.

Who is Mina Murray?

Dracula - Season 1

A doctor’s assistant who has the hots for Dracula.

She used to be happily engaged to Peter Harker until he got jealous and slept with her best friend, Lucy, whom is a lesbian. Ooh, risqué.

My Favorite Currently Airing Television Shows Part 3: ABC and NBC (The Broadcasting Companies)

Picture4

The Trophy Wife. They say the third time’s the charm, and reformed party girl Kate (Malin Akerman) is hoping that’s true when she becomes the third wife of a slightly older man, Pete (Bradley Whitford). They fell into each others’ arms (literally) at a karaoke bar, and flash forward a year later, Kate finds herself with an insta-family complete with three stepchildren and two ex-wives. But Kate is determined to make this work and become a part of the family no matter what.

Picture5

This show was described as an awesome show disguised by a terrible title. And I am here to tell you it is an awesome show and the titled may not be befitting. It’s funny. It’s family-friendly. It’s based in LA.  It’s fabulous. It’s based in LA. Did I mention it’s based in Los Angeles? Who doesn’t love a show based in Los Angeles? If you haven’t seen it yet, you have to and Hulu has all of the episodes right now, so get ‘em while they still have ‘em.

Picture7

Don’t be embarrassed, random person on Facebook. This show is amazing. The kids are great actors (It’s got that little girl from that one movie with spider man in it but he wasn’t spider man he was an angry husband who was angry that “Mommy would rather sleep with Uncle Tommy” than him.) And they are hilarious. And the wife and ex wives play off each other perfectly.

Picture6

Picture8

I mean, who doesn’t want to have a Christmas were they end up like this? And now, The Dark Side or The Blacklist, whichever you want to call it.

Picture3

But no seriously, when Darth Vader was saying to come to the dark side he was speaking of the future and talking about Blacklist. When I first heard about this show everybody was like “James Spader is amazing.” “James Spader’s Laugh is Amazing.” “James Spader have my baby.”

Red

And I am not going to lie, at first I didn’t understand. I wanted to see the show, but I wasn’t sure I was going to ask him to have my babies because all I could remember was this:

Picture2

But then I saw the first episode.  He turned himself in.  Just walked up to the counter in the FBI, said his name, then took off his hat and got down on the ground. Like a boss. And I was hooked.

Picture1

And then there was that song at the end of that one episode. The acapella version of 99 Problems by Jay Z?  That also sold me. This show has double agents, action, boss criminals and James Spader (which are all one in the same). Then there’s Agent Keen’s husband, whom I’m pretty sure is trying to kill her.

Picture9

Tip: stay away from the school teacher with glasses who is way too understanding after he gets cut up by some crazy psycho killer guy from your job, because he’s probably a spy trying to kill you. Also, always listen to Reddington.

Picture10

James Spader is amazing. James Spader’s Laugh is Amazing. James Spader have my baby.  You’ll be saying it too.  It’s true everybody really does love Raymond and hates Chris. But, I must warn you. This show can get kind of bloody sometimes. Like really bloody. the-blacklist-pilot6

So, this is a weird end to this three-parted post thing I was doing. But, what do you think? What are your favorite currently airing television shows? Tell me in the comments or email me or something. Have a great day. New post soon. Kisses and Kombuchas! — Sage

My Favorite Currently Airing Television Shows Part 2: K-Dramas

별에서 온 그대. Byuleseo on gudae. The best k-drama from the stars.

Picture5

That’s what that says.It’s funny, it’s dramatic, it’s romantic and it’s got that witch you want to punt in the face. It’s the one on the left, in case you were wondering. And to think I liked her so much in Secret Garden. She started out as the perfect best friend but even I knew that it was short-lived she just had had the potential to be her worst enemy (*cough cough* Greatest Love). Especially after Han Yoo Ra’s death. Which is sad because she was actually pretty hilarious:

Picture3

In this scene when they were trying to out-fierce each other I nearly died laughing, it was so funny. Another reason I am absolutely in love with this show.

Picture4

I’m not going to lie I had a tiny heart attack when this happened. And then I fan-girled for the rest of the night. This was awesome. Like super awesome. Like amazing awesome. I don’t usually say this but *feels* all the way.

15-Seconds

15 seconds anybody?

Dramas I am currently looking forward to:

Emergency Couple/Emergency Man and Woman/응급남녀

Drama_EmergencyCouple_bc4

Who doesn’t want to watch a drama where even the two main characters can’t keep a straight face? It’s airing January 24th.

and I Need Romance 3/ 로맨스가 필요해 3

Picture2

You have to watch a drama where the couple has this much chemistry. It’s like the law of K-Drama watching, unless, of course this is not your kind of drama, then I’m sorry. This airs yesterday. :D Anyways, new post soon. I am going to do my favorite shows that air on ABC and NBC, then I am going to do another “Have Breakfast With Me, Yeah?” post.

See you soon! Kisses and Kombuchas– Sage

My Favorite Currently Airing Television Series Part 1: FOX

First off, does three o’clock in the morning count as “later on today”? I don’t know. It took me all day to write this post because I had to figure out how I wanted to post them. There is going to be three parts. The first is television series on Fox, then ABC and NBC, then my favorite K-drama I think of all time and it’s still airing. Secondly, these are no way in order. I Love all of these shows equally, because, well, they’re amazing.

Picture1

Almost Human. The description to this show is complex because what they had in mind in the beginning of the series is different than what they have in mind now. But… it’s still awesome.

Picture2

Meet Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban) and Dorian (Michael Ealy). Two words: Hilarious Bromance. In the beginning of nearly every episode, Dorian and Kennex are in one of the squad cars talking and usually everything they have to say or everything they do is hilarious. It’s kind of hard to explain. But if you haven’t seen this series yet you soo need to. It’s a mixture of sci-fi, police/crime drama, and humor. Usually I am not one to ship characters but this couple is adorable (“Jorian”).

Picture3

They have two types of robot. The DX (a newer, lifeless version) and the DRN (more realistic– made to look more human– and emotional) which is the character Michael Ealy plays. This beaut here is the DX, and was hilariously and correctly called the “Life-size Ken Doll”.

Next: The Mindy Project.

Picture4

A young Ob/Gyn doctor balances her personal and professional life, surrounded by quirky co-workers in a small office. When there was rumor that this show was getting taken off air I was like “NOOO!!” I always look forward to seeing this show on hulu every week. It’s absolutely amazing. Not only is it hilarious but it’s great for people with self-image problems because she constantly talking about the way she looks. In the most recent episode Danny Castellano says to Mindy:

“OK, I get it, you’re self-conscious, I understand. But you have no reason to be. All I was gonna say is: don’t suck in your stomach so much. It makes you look nervous and frankly a little constipated … You’re a woman and that’s good—look like a woman.”

Not to mention all of her celebrity guess stars and romantic endeavors. Up top is Josh Peck who played Ray Ron, Tamra’s thug boyfriend.

Picture8

James Franco as Doctor Paul Leotard who took her place in episode 2.1 while she went to Haiti on a volunteer mission with her boyfriend Casey. (Workaholics, a show I’ve never seen I just know he was on because of the big advertisement they do on Amazon when you log in on via the playstation).

MindyEP202-featured-2

Kris Humphreys, Chris Messina (Danny Castellano) and Mindy at the beginning of season 2.

Picture12

Ex-Boyfriend/fiancé Casey on the left. And the Perfect Man (I’m not saying that in a “Hey Baby” sort of way but more like a because he was in the Perfect Man with Hilary Duff) Ben Feldman whom played Jason, one of Mindy’s boyfriends after her breakup with Casey.  There have been plenty more (celebrity guest-stars, I mean) such as Bill Hader, B.J. Novak and Seth Rogan. And did I mention this show is based off of her mother, also an Ob/Gyn, whom passed right before the show got picked up for the first season. So this show HAS to stay on. So go watch it. Now.

That’s it for this part, next part soon. If you watch the above shows what do you think about them? If you don’t, have I convinced you to go and look them up and binge on the episodes you haven’t seen yet? Because you totally should. Go ahead. 빨리가! I give you permission.

I Totally Had A Rock-Moment.
