TV Review: Chicago PD Season 1 Episode 14 "The Docks"

We pick up where we left off - Antonio is shot, and Pulpo and his wife and kid have escaped.

As we see Antonio under supervision still recovering, Jin is being a dirty rat copying files from Voight's computer. He sweats some bullets and gives Platt an excuse when she sees him. Why do TV shows never show real computer graphics? I don't get it. They don't even make it seem real either.

TV Recap: Big Bang Theory - The Gorilla Dissolution Engagement! Season 7 Episode 23 Review

The Big Bang Theory finally has something interesting that happens. Penny and Leonard get engaged!

Now honestly, it was one of the most awkward engagements ever, but at the same time it was very sweet. And, it was a long time coming. In the episode, Penny and Will Wheaton get fired from a D Gorilla movie and it sends Penny into a re-think of her life. The side story about Howard and Bernadette taking care of Howards mother is hilarious. They turn it into a 'how would you be as parents' moment.

The Tanning of America - One Nation Under Hip-Hop

Just the other day I was told that I should watch a certain program that had to do with hip-hop.

The program is four parts, and is titled "The Tanning of America". I was already drawn in. I watched part one like a school boy who hadn't heard about hip-hop before, and hung on to every word. "The Tanning of America" is hosted by Steve Stoute, who is responsible for huge business deals with Nas, so hearing anything from him about hip-hop is definitely worth listening to. The first part started at the very basis of hip-hop: the foundation, were it all started, and how no one had an idea of where it would go.
The movie continued as history lesson. I have followed hip-hop closely all throughout my life but there were certain things that I was learning and I was loving the movie as I went along deeper into it. Steve Stoute took us through stories including The Central Park Five, LL Cool J vs The Gap, along with many others. Diddy even made an appearance in the program.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and I recommend it for anyone who wants to learn more about the genre of hip-hop, the culture and how much effect it has on our world. In the end, I was almost to tears thinking about proud I am of hip-hop and its growth. Whenever you have time, give this movie a try.
