FAT KID RULES THE WORLD (2012)

A dropout comes to the aid of a chubby and suicidal high-school kid by recruiting him as the drummer for his upstart punk-rock band.

if you’re looking for a feel-good film, this is it. apparently it’s based on a book that i must read soon.

HALT AND CATCH FIRE (2014 - )

Set in the early 1980s, series dramatizes the personal computing boom through the eyes of a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy whose innovations directly confront the corporate behemoths of the time. Their personal and professional partnership will be challenged by greed and ego while charting the changing culture in Texas’ Silicon Prairie.

the only other IT related show i’ve watched and enjoyed was ‘the IT crowd’, everything else seemed to be incredibly forced and boring. if they weren’t boring, they were about apple. lee pace is just brilliant in everything, but the entire cast are perfect for the roles. can’t wait to see where this is going, because so far, i’m loving every bit of it. (and no, it’s not because i’m an IT student).

recommended by the super-rad simianonadune.

FARGO (2014 - )

A drifter named Lorne Malvo arrives in small-town Minnesota and influences the population with his malice and violence, including put-upon insurance salesman Lester Nygaard.

as recommended by toallthings, watch the film first. it’s not necessary but it’s an excellent way to get into this dark & humorous world. the cast are brilliant, the plot is excitingly nerve wracking and i particularly enjoyed the character development through out the season.

easily one of my favorite shows in 2014
