Whether it be malay, English or others, some dramas do touched our lives in more ways that we could imagined. We may binge watch it at one go and forget it but some we save it in a safe cache, because of the wonderful feeling we attached to it.
I grew up with Oshin’s, Sommersault Berpusing and Ultraman too. But those days passed so fast that, I would have to include G Force, Mask, Alleycats and etc too.
Okay, fast forward to the recent future. Here are a list made with love of the series that I kinda hold dear to me.
- The Mentalist
- Pushing Daisies
- Stranger Things
Psych and Pushing Daisies are really my top favs. It’s soo warm and fuzzy. I remember buying the cds for Pushing Daisies and felt sad that it was cancelled for the next season. I remember transferring the series from a friend who kinda shared the love for Psych. That friend, introduced me to Suits too. I really love Suits, for the longest time, but the last season left me feeling bland and I guess it’s almost a natural progression for some series. It’s hard to keep the momentum going after a while. Psych got musical for Pete’s sake!
We can’t talk about series’s binging if we don’t also bring in our neighbouring produces great works. Their insatiable desire to keep us glued and binging is world renown. I fell for it too, me, hapless and played and played, again and again by the melodrama, makjangs and whatevs. Is it a guilty pleasure? Nope, don’t think so. I don’t devote and binge for everything .That’s what we all say, ain’t it. We would like to say, we are selective, we are unique.
Unique as it may be, this is a list of foreign series that I have great recall and at times, have unexplained notions of gruelling through the series again. Hmmph ..some are soo if not quite long. Well, the hours go by all too quickly too. Time wasters indeed. But not if one gains a little but of insights, if not many, that can be used in real life. After all, drama’s mimicks or do try to imitate real life.
