Thank you Netflix for being there during the summer. I’ve discovered this new show called¬†Cake Boss.

It has everything that I would ever want in a show — drama, pranks, love, and best of all, food. This Valastro family may have loud voices, argue all the time, and make dreadful mistakes, but in the end, they all stick together and grow as a bakery. Not to mention, they churn out amazing cake after cake that go past your wildest dreams. A cake that spits fire? Check. A cake that launches like a real rocket? Check. A cake that acts exactly like Bumblebee from Transformers? Check. Any challenge, any demand, Carlo’s Bakery is willing to take it and make it better than you ever believed.

(I’m pretty sure I’ve gone through three seasons in a week, though. Don’t judge me, please.)

Though sometimes you want to smack his sisters in the face, sometimes you want to put the smaller Buddy in his place, and sometimes you want to yell at the delivery boys to do their job properly, in the end, they grow on you, and you feel like you have this extraordinary, extended, loud Italian family by your side.

Definitely a 5/5 stars. Do watch. You won’t regret it, unless you start being late to appointments or missing that summer slumber because you’re so addicted.

I have been obsessed with the BBC series Sherlock.

On Netflix, there’s a total of two seasons with three episodes each, but BBC is expected to start producing another season in March 2013. None of the episodes have disappointed me yet. Complete with everything you’d expect a modern Sherlock Holmes to have, there’s romance (well, slightly:¬† Sherlock isn’t really the dating type), explosions, blood, science, logical explanations, not-so-logical endings (if I elaborated on this I would be giving everything away), and a few too many crazy people.
