As many people, I loved the Liam Neeson Taken movie franchise. We never did get the story entire story of Bryan Mills in the movies though. Well, Taken the TV series gives you that backstory, as it serves as the prequel to the movie franchise. The series starts out with Mills losing his sister in a gun shooting train incident, that’s where his purpose and motivation to become everyones favorite vigilante begins. Clive Standen plays the much younger and aggressive version of Neeson’s movie version character. The series manages to keep the intrigue from episode to episode as Mills tracks down the bad guys and avenges his sisters murder. It’s definitely one of those shows you can get into that will want you coming back for more.

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
