Wow, 2015 seemed to go by so fast – but then each day, week, month, year seems to be whizzing by so quickly now. I’ve never been a fan of listicles and a ‘Best of’ kind of post, so this one is rather surprising – and even more so in a year when there weren’t too many opportunities / experiences to really merit a ‘Best of’ but here goes.
I guess the title of this post would be self-explanatory to some, and meaningless to others. No, this is not about any urge to document old and historical castles, but rather Castle, the TV series which concluded Season 2 in India 🙂
This series was aired from May 3, 2010 on Star World between 10 pm-11pm every week, from Monday to Thursday. What surprised me was my keenness to watch it, considering I only heard about it a month or so ago. A colleague had hosted a party at his place, and during a conversation about movies and TV shows like Monk, Two and a Half Men etc., another colleague happened to mention that Castle was also worth a watch. Now this party was on a Friday, and I couldn’t wait enough for Monday.
Gary Coleman is dead. Seeing this news on my Twitter timeline suddenly took me back into a time long long ago. Gary was a child actor and probably best known for his role as Arnold Jackson in the hit TV series of the ’80s, Diff’rent Strokes… a time when TV series were pure fun! He was just 42, and died due to intracranial haemorrhage after he suffered a fall at home, hurting his head.
