From “Penny Dreadful” to “Lion”: A Catch-up with Director Davide Melini

While fans of Penny Dreadful are still mourning the recently announced ending of Showtime’s horror drama TV series after the Season 3 finale, I thought it was a good idea to catch-up with someone who worked on the show. You may remember Davide Melini from my previous interview on his homage to the “Giallo” film Read more about From “Penny Dreadful” to “Lion”: A Catch-up with Director Davide Melini[…]

Five Reasons for Catching Up With the ‘Vikings’ TV Series

I’ve kept the promise in my post from last October and have given Vikings a chance.

Indeed his dedication to the character could sell the historical drama on its own. So Read more about Five Reasons for Catching Up With the ‘Vikings’ TV Series[…]

Why I am enjoying “Sons of Anarchy” Much More Now That It’s Over

My main problem with TV series is time and schedule. Watching one series after the other of my favourite TV show is clearly exciting (and time consuming), but having to synchronise my desire to watch the latest episode with airing dates has always been an issue for me. Mostly because I don’t watch TV the Read more about Why I am enjoying “Sons of Anarchy” Much More Now That It’s Over[…]

When Talking About Art Is In Itself a Form of Art: Carlo Vanoni’s “In Bed with Mona Lisa”

I admit it: I’ve cheated. I’ve recently read Carlo Vanoni‘s book In Bed with Mona Lisa – Contemporary Art for Commuters and Curious Minds (La Toletta, 2014) all at once, while on a train from Brussels to London. Which is a shame, because the nice idea about this humorous trip into the world of contemporary Read more about When Talking About Art Is In Itself a Form of Art: Carlo Vanoni’s “In Bed with Mona Lisa”[…]

A Sherlock Holmes for the Digital Age

What would the best detective on the market do nowadays to solve more cases? Elementary, my dear readers: they would run a blog. If you’re searching for inspiration about personal branding, you then should have a look at Sherlock Holmes’ The Science of Deduction. I am admittedly quite late in catching up with the latest Read more about A Sherlock Holmes for the Digital Age[…]

Is the “Vikings” TV series Worth Watching?

Finally I made it: I watched the pilot for Vikings. And after seeing it, I’ll give the Canadian-Irish TV series a chance. We’re actually well into it, with Season 3 scheduled to air on the History television channel in 2015, but better late than never, given the fact that I’ve always been fascinated by Norse Read more about Is the “Vikings” TV series Worth Watching?[…]
