Will Lifetime’s ‘Devious Maids’ Be Renewed For Season Four? | By Haider Rifaat

The third season of the thrilling Lifetime soap opera Devious Maids will conclude next week on August 24th, 2015. The show stars Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes, Ana Ortiz and Dania Ramirez as four ambitious Latina maids working for some of the most affluent families in Los Angeles, California. But these four ladies harbor many dirty secrets of the households they represent.

The first season of the show focused on Flora Hernandez’s murder case. The maids made it their mission to find out who the real killer really was.

The second season had a lot going on. There was an obsessed ‘maid’ lover who also happened to be a killer. The season ended its run with a cliffhanger – a major character got shot on Rosie’s wedding ceremony.

In the current season three of Devious Maids, the center of focus was the Stappord family who had recently adopted a Mexican girl, Katy. It was later revealed in the last few episodes that she had witnessed her father’s murder and that a gang of goons were after her.

Additionally, a new maid was introduced this season, Blanca Alvarez (played by Naya Rivera) who was yet again murdered by an anonymous killer, and now we will finally uncover who the actual killer is in next week’s season finale.

Speaking of ratings, the current season of the show generated a million viewers per episode facing a downfall as compared to the last two seasons. But the real question is, will Lifetime renew Devious Maids for a fourth season? I sure hope so! Although the ratings have not been so impressive this year, the show continues to surprise us with its writing and acting. Let’s keep those fingers crossed!


‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ (REVIEW) – Tom Cruise Shines In This Action-Packed Thriller | By Haider Rifaat

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is one of those rare action films that any avid fan could watch twice on an opening weekend. To begin with, Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner were both great in the film and worked well as a team; not to forget the stellar performance delivered by Rebecca Ferguson who was spot on in every scene. But before I proceed, I’d also like to mention that Cruise still has a long way to go in his career. He just never seems to age!

‘Rogue Nation’ is the fifth installment in the ‘Mission Impossible’ film series that centers on Ethan Hunt and his quest to unravel the existence of Syndicate, an organization gone rogue that poses a threat to IMF. This action packed thriller is perhaps the best film in the ‘Mission Impossible’ film franchise. It was fun, entertaining and thrilling all at the same time. As always Tom Cruise owned his character in the film. Since this was Ferguson’s first film with Cruise and I hadn’t seen any of her movies prior to watching this, I found her bracing presence in the movie quite refreshing. She is a great actress in my humble opinion.

Jeremy Renner’s rather insignificant role was worthy of praise given his unique acting talent. His gentleman-like character was well conceived by the writer(s). The film’s plot, from the start till the end was thought provoking. Although the story was a bit muddled during the first half hour, it picked up right after Syndicate (an organization working to take down IMF) was introduced.

The action was perhaps, the most enticing aspect of the film. The fighting scenes were spot on and the acting was brilliant. Overall, the movie was well directed and written. Although ‘Rogue Nation’ had its ups and downs alike every other movie, one cannot expect too much from any film.

Speaking of which, ‘Rogue Nation’ has performed exceedingly well overseas especially in the U.S. where it collected $56 million dollars on its opening weekend. Additionally, the film was lauded by many critics who praised Cruise’s performance in particular.

Christopher Orr of The Atlantic commented, “You overcome the impossible through the application of sheer, unvarnished willpower, a quality that Cruise has always possessed in abundance.”

While Ty Burr of the Boston Globe called ‘Rogue Nation’ ‘preposterously enjoyable.’

There were, however, a few elements that seemed slightly out of place. Aside from the roaring action, ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’ depicted stunts that no one could experience in the real world. That, for me was the only turn off. All in all, if you’re looking to spend good two hours on a film, give ‘Rogue Nation’ a shot!


Will ‘Eye Candy’ Be Renewed For A Second Season? | By Haider Rifaat

The freshman thriller TV show, ‘Eye Candy’ is one week away before concluding its first season. The show stars Victoria Justice as Lindy Sampson, a brilliant hacker who makes it her mission to search for an online serial killer in New York City while juggling her personal and professional life. The show made a decent series debut this year attracting a little over 0.6 million viewers on original airings. Although such ratings are relatively lower as compared to other hit MTV shows.

In last night’s episode, we discovered who the real Flirtual killer was. It was none other than Lindy’s psychotic love interest, Jake Bolin. Being a huge fan of thriller television shows, I believe that we, as viewers, were already given a hint about Jake’s dark side prior to his revelation as the actual killer. The ninth episode was quite a package for all ‘Eye Candy’ fans. It had drama, thriller and a tad bit of neo-noir edge to it. I, for one savored every moment of the episode. It was worth the watch!

But the real question is, will the show be renewed for a second season? Although many fans want the series to be renewed, but will MTV give ‘Eye Candy’ the benefit of the doubt before cancelling the show? Being a passionate fan of the series, I believe the show should be renewed for a second season. The series has managed to garner over 0.6 million viewers per episode. Even if the finale episode generates a million viewers, we might get some fruitful news from MTV in the coming weeks. Let’s just hope ‘Eye Candy’ gets renewed for a fresh season, but until then, stay tuned for the season finale set to air on March 16th, 2015 at 10PM on MTV.


Should ‘Stalker’ Be Renewed For A Second Season? | By Haider Rifaat

The freshman drama series ‘Stalker’ that made its debut on October 1st, 2014 on CBS is already halfway through its mid season. The show stars Maggie Q, Dylan McDermott, Mariana Klaveno and Victor Rasuk as an LAPD Threat Assessment Unit who track down stalkers in Los Angeles, California. While many critics think that the show’s writing is too clichéd, I, for one believe that ‘Stalker’ is a great series to look out for. The storylines might be stereotyped but the manner in which they are depicted on television is something I strongly support and commend.

StalkerThe series not only sheds light on the subject of stalking but promotes several ways of tackling it. Throughout the mid season run, ‘Stalker’ has managed to attract a little over seven million viewers per episode and has kept a steady pace up till now. Despite receiving horrendous reviews from many critics, ‘Stalker’ has developed a decent fan base. I myself admire the show’s unique plot and character profiles. Undoubtedly, Maggie Q is the limelight of the series, hands down! She is truly a great actress in my humble opinion.

Dylan McDermott, on the other hand, did a fine job portraying Jack Larsen, a new recruit for the TAU unit. Another compelling aspect of ‘Stalker’ is the addition of the neo-noir genre. But what makes the show more gripping is the standout soundtrack. At the end of almost every episode, there is a song that fits in perfectly for the ending scene. Keeping these factors in mind, I believe that ‘Stalker’ should be renewed for a second season. Like every show, it should be given a chance. I strongly recommend ‘Stalker’ to those who are avid fans of dark and mysterious television shows.


‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Winter Finale – Did Annalise Kill Her Husband? | By Haider Rifaat

The freshman TV series How to Get Away with Murder is heating up in terms of its weekly storylines. The show stars the Academy Award nominee Viola Davis as Annalise Keating, a criminal law professor who recruits five of her best law students to work for her firm. Amidst all the cases, things take a drastic turn after all of them are caught up in a murder trial.

But the show doesn’t end there. Apparently, we, as fans, have no idea who the real killer is. However, we do know the victim’s name. So far it was Lila Stangard but there is a recent addition to the pile. It’s none other than Annalise’s dishonest husband, Sam.

fileThe eighth episode of the show titled “He Has A Wife” aired last night on ABC. Among all the scenes, the shocker was Bonnie’s romantic linkup with Sam. Now, we all saw them exchange glances with each other in the first few episodes of the show. That only triggered my curiosity as a viewer.

As far as the killer is concerned, I believe that Annalise is the one who killed her husband. Clearly, she was devastated over Sam’s secret affair with Lila. Soon after, it was revealed that Lila was six weeks pregnant. This further aggravated Annalise and Sam’s relationship. Although Annalise didn’t exhibit her sentiments, she seemed quite unsteady and shaky in last night’s episode.

Also, in the flashback scenes, Connor, Wes, Michaela, Laurel and Asher are seen protecting someone. Who else could it be except for Annalise? She could have turned to her students for help. Clearly, the clever defense attorney Annalise Keating knows how to get away with murder and this could only mean one thing; she is the victim this time around.

The How to Get Away with Murder winter finale will air next week on November 20, 2014 at 10PM on ABC.
