Top 10 ___: Top Ten Activities To Undertake At The Beach!

bondi_beach

Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens, which is posting roughly every Sunday, Australian time. We have been on a break for a couple of weeks, thinking about new topics so that this series doesn’t become stale, and here we are again with a new and fresh perspective. Last time I went very specific, and shared my top 10 new characters I would like to see on one of my favourite TV shows, Once Upon a Time (in the upcoming 4th Season and beyond). Now we’re pulling things back to the more general.

So here we are. At the end of the freshman run of a show struggling for ratings, and a show that might not be renewed. USA Network’s Rush ended its first season today (although I was quite sure that there were 12 episodes this season, not ten), and it ends the season quite dramatically. Many of the things that were certain now aren’t, and I have to say, the show surprised me in the end in a very good way, so much so that I would be disappointed if the show was cancelled, though a few episodes ago I probably wouldn’t have cared.

If you don’t know by now, let me say that I prefer cable series to broadcast shows. No it’s not only because of the shortened seasons, and the fact that there are less ‘filler’ episodes – but rather because of the quick pace of the story, and the fact that a lot can change within a few episodes.

Finding Carter (The Long Goodbye, One Hour Photo)

Starring: Kathryn Prescott, Cynthia Watros, Anna Jacoby-Heron, Alexis Denisof, Zac Pullam, Milena Govich

Shall I be the first person to say that cliffhanger endings are especially the worst- especially if Finding Carter wasn’t renewed? Even though it was (the ending didn’t really matter- the show is back next year), the ending of episode 12, the season 1 finale, would probably have been one of the worst series endings ever (that’s if the show was cancelled). Frankly, even as a season finale, the last episode wasn’t really that great. Nevertheless, despite my reservations after One Hour Photo (the episode title should’ve given away to us what the plotline of the last episode was about), Finding Carter is still a great show. With an ending like what I’m sure everyone has seen- if they’re reading this review- then season 2 will be all the more great to be excited about.
