mioTV US TV Marathon

Remember the fashion party that mioTV held with Robinsons weeks ago?
Read it here and here :)

mioTV brings bloggers and I for part 2 - US TV series Marathon on last last Saturday afternoon at Naumi Hotel. Hoho, it's a really pretty boutique hotel.

Hui Wen in the "living room".

Hong Peng on the "grandma" chair.

The bed & the corridor.

With Pei Shi & Jasmine.
A pity I didn't get to take pictures with others.

Some brochures.

What's a marathon without some food.

I was supposed to be on diet, but I didn't had lunch that day and the food is too irresistible, so I gave in to temptations. Once a treat in a while :)

Hoho, I'm actually not a fan of US TV series. I guess no harm knowing more TV series and who knows I might like it.

All the TV series are in order as to what we watched :)

Hart of Dixie

Welcome to HART OF DIXIE, set in the lovely town of BlueBell, Alabama, where the neighbors take care of one another, the mailman knows your name, there's a parade every Tuesday ... and no one has ever seen the likes of Dr. Zoe Hart. Zoe feels the culture shock of her new surroundings immediately but the real shock comes when she learns that the doctor who invited her to BlueBell has passed away and left her with his half of the medical practice. His old-school partner, Dr. Brick Breeland, is determined to chase her out of town and his daughter, southern belle Lemon Breeland, is only too happy to help. Starring Rachel Bilson (The OC)

My take:
This is one TV series which make me feel comfortable, just like any drama.

Once upon a time

Emam Swan is shocked when Henry the son she gave up years ago turns up in desperate need of her help. Henry believes that Emma is Snow White and Prince Charming's missing daughter who sent her away to protect her from the Evil Queen's curse. Of course Emma doesn't believe a word, but when she returns Henry to his hometown of Storybrooke, she suspects that this town may be more than it seems. Storybrooke is a magical place where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don't remember who they once were – including the Evil Queen who is now Henry's foster mother.

My take:
A fairytale comes to the 21st century. I give it a 5 out of 5 stars.
You have got to catch this. This is everyone's favourite. Super awesome.
I feel like getting mioTV in my house because of this series.


Welcome to the Hamptons, a glittering world of incredible wealth and privilege, where smiles hide secrets – and nothing is colder than revenge. When sexy Emily Thorne moves to town, everyone wonders about the new girl, but she knows everything about them, including who they are and what they did to her family years ago. Now, one by one, she's going to make them pay. Emily's main target is Victoria, a powerful woman who holds the key to Emily's past ... and perhaps her future. No matter how guarded the people in the Hamptons are, they can't keep the truth out forever. Starring Emily Vancamp (Brothers and Sisters, Everwood) and Madeline Stowe (Last of the Mochicans)

My take:
Another awesome TV series that I like.
I think I'm addicted to this as well. Oh man.

Happy Endings

The series revolves around the lives of a group of friends whose group is rocked when the couple that brought them together, Alex and Dave, break up. This leaves the rest of the group (Max, Brad, Jane and Penny) in an awkward position of either trying to stay together as friends or having to choose sides. This hilarious series stars Elisa Cutbert (24)

My take:
Comedy. I don't really get this. Perhaps it's too short for me to understand.

2 broke girls

A lot of young girls move to New York City to "make it." Max and Caroline are just trying to make their rent. In this fun, outrageous comedy series written by Emmy® Award winner Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City) and white-hot stand-up comedian Whitney Cummings, two girls from very different backgrounds -- Max, poor from birth, and Caroline, born wealthy but down on her luck -- wind up as waitresses in the same colorful Brooklyn diner and strike up an unlikely friendship that could lead to a successful business venture. All they need to do is come up with $250,000 in start-up expenses. Starring Kat Jennings (Thor)

My take:
Comedy. I like it, but won't say it's my favourite though :)

American horror story

The story focuses on a family who move to a decrepit mansion in Los Angeles. Little do they know, this once-noble home is haunted. "American Horror Story" revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The All Star cast features Dylan McDermott (The Practice) as "Ben Harmon," a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) as "Vivien Harmon," Ben's wife; Taissa Farmiga as "Violet," the Harmon's teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as "Constance," the Harmon's neighbor; Evan Peters (One Tree Hill) as "Tate Langdon," one of Ben's patients; and Denis O'Hare (The Good Wife) as "Larry Harvey."

My take:
I never like and I don't watch horror shows. Honestly speaking I was covering my eyes with the brochure throughout the show. Ok except parts when it's not scary.

Hope that you have found something you like in this 6 new US TV series :D
Still considering whether to subscribe to mioTV.

Anyway, thanks Jasmine for lending me her camera to take pictures :)
