Are You Addicted to Power TV?

My brother first told me about the Power TV show on Starz back in 2014. Now, my sister watches it and everybody in my circle does so too. For what it's worth, I've watched every episode in every season; and, I can attest to the TV show's exceptional quality.

I think anybody concerned with gaining street knowledge should watch Power because there are morals to their stories. Although Tommy should be idolized, you do realize that he's going to end up in a body-bag eventually? Also, you might as well conclude that Ghost is dead already since everybody has took a stab at killing him since season 1. There's clearly a plot to kill.

But James St. Patrick is strong. He won't die. Remember what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Omari Hardwick's character is fundamentally fit to be a drug kingpin for years to come. And dying right now is bad for business, specifically the marketing department.

It's the characters that give life to the story. Who's your favorite character? Isn't Omari Hardwick the best actor? And Joseph Sikora is the shit too. But my favorite character is SPOILER ALERT... Lobos (sorry to see you go.)

I like Lobos aka Jefe (translated as Boss in Spanish) the best because he did the least amount of work and reaped the most amount of money. While everybody was doing the dirty work, Lobos kept his hands and feet manicured and pedicured, respectively. They feared and respected him the most.

The writers room on Power come up with incredible ideas. The writers don't stop developing their story lines. There is always something unexpected in the script. Moreover, the directors and producers take their time positioning key players and putting key pieces in place. I love creator Courtney A. Kemp.

Finally, the music contributes significantly to Power's greatness. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson created a few good songs for the show. Big Rich Town and I'm the Man are on my playlist right now.

Are you addicted to the TV show? It is a superior product for certain. Everything about Power is excellent.

Why Seth Rogen Is Canada's Complete Comedic Actor


Comedy offers possibilities. Seth Rogen should play a role in Mission Impossible. He could spend some extra time in the gym with Tom Cruise's personal training help.

Canada's complete comedic actor puts the “Can” in Canada. You thought I was going to say trash or recycle bin maybe, didn't you? My advice is to light up your cigars because this thing called life is hard sometimes.

You see comedians light up the world in dark times. We need more laughter and less tears. That's why I'm blogging about comedy today.

Seth Rogen is one of my favorite comedians. You could argue that he is one of the best in showbiz. He just does a good job imitating Drake- that's all.

I'll never forget his joke about Facebook in Funny People. He gave Jonah Hill a comedy lesson. Plus, Adam Sandler got a few pointers (or should I say Pokes) from Seth.

I highly recommend watching Pineapple Express. Who else can't wait to see Seth and James Franco star in Pineapple Express 2? For one, Rogen and Franco go together like beans and cornbread. Who remembers Green Latern? Have you seen the controversial Interview movie?

I like Seth Rogen because he regulates the comedy world. Seth understands how to Dougie. He can teach you how to do it too.

While I'm on the topic of dancing, check out his Lip Sync Battle with Jimmy Fallon? It's on YouTube right now. You'll also enjoy his appearance on the Ellen Show.

In many ways, his comedy comes on you unexpectedly. He never forces his material. The laid back celebrity keeps a low profile and does what is needed.

Are you waiting for Neighbors 2 DVD to hit store shelves? Was Sausage Party funny? I feel Seth Rogen hasn't maximized his true potential yet. Could you imagine a Seth Rogen and Zach Galifianakis collaboration? They could make a rap song to satisfy fans. With 4.5 million Twitter followers, that's a whole lot of potential greatness.

Emmys 2016 Recap: Red Carpet and Winners


Emmys 2016 Recap: Red Carpet and Winners

Could you feel the good vibrations on the red carpet last night?

Hopefully, you got a chance to watch the Emmy Awards. In this blog, we will experience it again. In case you missed it, you'll also appreciate my recap.

To begin with, the interviews set the tone for the night. There was a little something for everybody. Are you much into fashion and style? Did you enjoy seeing the actresses and actors strutting their stuffs?

We saw John Travolta and Amy Schumer arrive on the scene. Naturally, Amy said something inappropriate. And Travolta was cool like he's been- for the past 40 years.

The Emmys literally started up their engines as host Jimmy Kimmel hitchhiked with TV and showbiz's biggest stars. To start it off, he got a little Carpool Karaoke for us from James Corden. Of course, Jimmy was kicked out of the car because of his bad singing. Other celebrities including Julia Louis-Dreyfus kicked him to the curb.

Entertainment award shows are the highlight of an entertaining season. After all that hard work, talent is rightly rewarded by the Television Academy. There were tons of winners Sunday- too many to name everyone.

Jeffrey Tambor was the talk of the Tinseltown because of his performance in Transparent. It seems Transparent owned the night. In fact, Jimmy Kimmel handed Tambor an Emmy when the show first started.

Tori Kelly sang a beautiful Hallelujah honoring the memories of those we lost this year ending with Prince. Louie Anderson won the first award. Were fans pleased to see Mr. Robot take home an Emmy or what? Plus, Game of Thrones and Veep were recognized with multiple wins.

Moreover, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story won big. Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown took home Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively. You also saw Key & Peele receive their respects they paid dearly for on the comedic side. It's all about sacrifice.

To be honest, the Emmys were dull but enjoyable with coffee. I don't fault the nominees because the TV shows themselves are incredible. I suggest more music and/or better clips next time. Otherwise, Everything was all good.
