Lost in Space (2018)| Series | Trailer

In the month of April, Netflix will air a new series named ‘Lost in Space’. Maybe this series will become my new series to watch after I have finished ‘The Vampire Diaries | Season 7′
or ‘The Queen | Season Two’. 

Lost in Space’

The first season of this series will consist of 10 episodes of each an hour length. According to IMDb not the average 44 minutes. I am wondering if these series will be distinctive enough of ‘Star Trek – Discovery | Season One’ so I can watch both series for some variety and that I will not mix up the storylines. The genre is science-fiction and it is a remake of a 1960s science fiction series about a family that has accidentally survive in this universe. The ten episodes will be online at once on April 13th, a friday so you could binge-watch if you like it.

The family ‘Robinson’ who it is all about, will be played by Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell and Max Jenkins.

Pinterest | Top Five Today | Netflix Series

Are you curious for which series I am currently watching on Netflix?

On Wednesday I write about series. A series review or stuff related to series. To finish a series takes a lot of time, watching a lot of episodes and now and then it is more than others. A series can differ from two episodes in a season to twenty-three episodes in a season. Often a long documentary is split into multiple parts, for example two or three. But it is still a documentary because it is informative and made once without enlarging it every now and then. When a series has four or more episodes, I see it a real series. Not a documentary; independent of the category or subject.

Top Five Today

Hereby the five series I recently watch on Netflix. The posters gathered on my Pinterest.

The most royal series and therefore now one of my favorites. And oh the English accents, for a non-native English speaker / writer.
Year start: 2016 | Seasons: 2 | Categories: Drama, History

A story about a – partly criminal – family living in Birmingham in the 1918’s. Just after the war. Interesting subject and point of view during that decade.
Year start: 2013 | Seasons: 5 | Categories: Crime, Drama

What I like most about the series is that you can rarely predict the happenings, plot twists, change of characters and so on.
Year start: 2009 | Seasons: 8 | Categories: Drama, Fantasy, Horror.

If you have visited once – or plan to visit – one of the biggest in the history of Britain castles … this series is a nice addition of information and views of the territory and areas of the castle.
Year start: 2015 | Seasons: 2 | Categories: Documentary, History

Because of the combination of technology, the graphics and the fantasy futuristic story, I like this series a lot! A nice new Star Trek series. If you have seen none, one, two or even all of the films of Star Trek… this series is for everybody who loves a bit of technology and fantasy. You do not need prior to this series the knowledge of all the films and stuff… you can just start with this series as an independent series.
Year start: 2017 | Seasons: 1 | Category: Science-Fiction

Sherlock | Season One (2010)

My series review of “Sherlock | Season One (2010)” created by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat

In my view…

Sherlock Holmes is a very well known character in the detective literature written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The books are very famous and since 2010 it is – partly – filmed in a series way. And yes I say partly because it is adjusted to the time period we currently live in. The (high-)tech technology of today but the complexity of mysteries in crimes is of all time.

It is incredible how Sherlock Holmes – played by Benedict Cumberbatch – talks and thinks so rapidly. And even John is talking more rapidly in the upcoming seasons than he managed in this season. Of course it is a series, filmed and directed and mounted by a crew, but it is definitely also a skill of really good acting! As an actor as he didn’t practice his lines as rapidly as they were supposed to be; than you would have noticed it. But he did. In fact a few nice additions to this series and interviews and stuff can be seen on YouTube at the Graham Norton Show.

Another nice fact: this series is translated in at least seven languages. I have written previously about it in ‘Sherlock in seven languages‘. Those languages are: English, Italiano, Español, Français, Deutsch, Čeština and Russian.

The obvious story at the beginning is about the genius consultant detective Sherlock Holmes meeting for the first time with Dr. John Watson. From then on they go on an adventure. An adventure that will last way more than just one season of three long 90 minutes episodes, but I will only review the first season in this post. The big adventure is about Sherlock Holmes himself. Who is he really? What does he like? How does he think so incredibly quickly and sharp. Thinking clearly is not always the case…or well…that’s just the case of an episode, and more widely seen his character now and then if you can still follow me haha.

The main characters

Beside Sherlock Holmes himself and Dr. Watson, there are a few characters that play a big role throughout this season. The landlord woman of their house is Mrs. Hudson and they work together with D.I. Lestrade on all the cases. Quite quickly miss Molly Hooper begins to play a role within the series as well as Sherlock’s brother Mycroft Holmes.

The first episode of Sherlock | Season One (2010)

A Study in Pink

“A woman in pink is the fourth in a series of seemingly unrelated suicides, but Sherlock Holmes deduces that the deaths are actually murders most foul.” – Netflix description

“War vet Dr. John Watson returns to London in need of a place to stay. He meets Sherlock Holmes, a consulting detective, and the two soon find themselves digging into a string of serial ‘suicides’. ” – IMDb description

Tips / tricks / confusing

After – nearly bingewatching – this series completely with the fourth season, I can give a little advice for watching this series:

English is not my mother tongue; though I am quite fluent in English. I use subtitles because especially Sherlock Holmes speaks so rapidly with lots and lots of details in his sentences. I never want to miss a single detail because as a watcher of this series you are thinking together with them. You are asking yourself the ‘who dunnit?’ question. So: subtitles on! Oh and not in my native language Dutch because several translations are not correct and / or missing words.

My second advice is this: prepare your environment with a bottle of water and a healthy snack. Because for 90 minutes your brain will be thinking about the story, what it sees, the sounds and just thriller of the series too! So it’s not a ‘sit back and just relax’ series, no it is a ‘the game is on’ series!

It can be confusing that Sherlock talks so rapidly and it can be a bit confusing if you have read the novels but discover that they are not exactly the same. For example already the title: is it ‘A Study in Pink’ or ‘A Study in Scarlet’ ?

My third and last advice is to watch

Trailer:

This trailer is uploaded on YouTube by ‘The Empty Hearse’ and is not officially made by the BBC. But nonetheless this is a nice recap of several scene shot throughout the whole season.

I hope you like the series too. It is definitely worth to watch it! I am not telling too  much about the single episodes – never do in my reviews – you have to see the series yourself and make your own opinion.
