Kindred: The Embraced

What is it?

The 1996 American television series Kindred: The Embraced.

[ALTERNATE TITLES] Kindred: The Embraced

What is it about?

This is how Wikipedia describes this television show:

The series initially focused on San Francisco Police Detective Frank Kohanek (C. Thomas Howell) who discovers his city is home to numerous vampires while investigating alleged mobster, Julian Luna (Mark Frankel).

Julian is not really a mobster as Frank supposes.

Julian is the Prince of the city, ruler of five groups of vampires in the city, collectively called “the Kindred.”

Julian, in his role as Prince, is shown to be the only force that can stop the clans from breaking the uneasy truce that keeps them from fighting with each other.

The vampires survive through the “Masquerade,” disguising themselves as humans, and Julian strictly enforces the laws that govern them to protect their anonymity.

Any vampires who break those rules find their lives ended.

Vampires are shown to slip into human society rather easily, holding a variety of jobs.

The senior vampires who compose the conclave of San Francisco are depicted as wealthy heads of industry and business leaders.

Julian and Frank form an uneasy bond due to Frank having been romantically involved with Julian’s former lover, who was also a vampire, and who made Julian promise to protect him as a last favor to her before her death.

Because of his past physical intimacy with a vampire, Frank is shown to be somewhat resistant to a vampire’s powers.

Frank and Julian work together to try to prevent a vampire war.

Additionally, Frank uses his connection to his advantage when investigating crimes.

Julian struggles with his romantic feelings for human reporter Caitlin Byrne (Kelly Rutherford).

Further, Julian is assisted by and finds comfort in his trusted friend, Daedelus, who is the senior vampire for one of the five clans.

The Purge (Season 1)

Source: IMDb

What is it?

The 2018 horror television show The Purge (Season 1).

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this television show:

The first season of “The Purge” follows a group of individuals, each pursuing their own agendas while trying to survive the 12 violence-ridden hours of Purge Night.

US Marine Miguel Guerrero (Gabriel Chavarria) returns home to search for his sister Penelope (Jessica Garza).

Penelope has joined a cult that sacrifices its members to Purgers, led by Good Leader Tavis (Fiona Dourif).

Jane Barbour (Amanda Warren) uses Purge Night to conduct something nefarious against her boss David Ryker (William Baldwin).

Rick Betancourt (Colin Woodell) and his wife Jenna (Hannah Anderson) attend a pro-Purge party despite their anti-Purge beliefs to drum up financial support for their various charities.

My Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched this show last year, I did not realize until now that I had not made a post about it, oops.

I did not expect to like this show, but it was better than I had expected.

This show follows the stories of several different characters, my least favorite was the story that followed the married couple, they were pretty boring and not very relatable; and so the other stories were better, but in one of the stories there was a character who was supposed to be a soldier/marine but I do not think that he did a good job playing a soldier/marine.

This show did just enough to earn its existence and it did just enough to continue watching it, and so I wonder what they will do with season two.

The end,

My Super Ex-Girlfriend

What is it?

The 2006 American superhero comedy movie My Super Ex-Girlfriend.

My Super Ex Girlfriend Official Trailer!

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

A regular guy finds out just how hard breaking up can truly be when attempting to call it quits with a clingy female crime fighter who doesn’t want to let love die in director Ivan Reitman’s super-powered romantic comedy.

Matt Saunders (Luke Wilson) was looking for love when he first met pretty brunette Jenny Johnson (Uma Thurman), and at the time it seemed as if he may have finally actually found it.

Jenny isn’t just your typical girl, though, because despite her outwardly normal appearance, she is actually a powerful superhero dedicated to ridding the streets of crime.

Her outward strength betrays a deep-rooted
