Pakistan’s first ever pro-wrestling event was a success, but does it have a future here?

It was back in the 80s when the New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) visited Pakistan and conducted three shows at the Liaquat Gymnasium in Islamabad. This was the first ever contact pro-wrestling match with a Pakistani audience. Unfortunately, due to the political and security situation of our country, we were cut off from wrestling tours in the future. We then began to rely on World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) for our dose of wrestling. Sure, legendary Antonio Inoki and his crew visited Pakistan back in 2012 and conducted a show under the banner of the Punjab Youth Festival but that was, let’s face it, more of a political gathering as ...

And then there is the multi-camera setup, which is shot in front of a live audience and does have a ‘laugh track’, often contributed by the audience in front of whom it is filmed.

After all, when you have to shoot in front of an audience, you risk ...

Two and a Half Men and my list of expectations from the final season

Two and a Half Men premieres its 12th and final season on October 30, 2014. Twelve seasons. Even comedy giants like Seinfeld and Friends didn’t make it this far, getting nine and ten seasons respectively, clearly showing how successfully this show has been received by the audience. A lot of the fame can be attributed to the star-studded cast the show has; with the controversial yet famous Charlie Sheen being in the lead role for the first eight seasons, to getting Ashton Kutcher taking over “the ashes” of Sheen. Meanwhile, many huge celebrities also made regular appearances on the show, some prominent ones being Sean Penn, Megan Fox, Steven Tyler and Mila Kunis. Despite the ups ...

‘How I Met Your Mother’ comes to an end but was it legendary?

On Monday, March 31 ‘How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM)’ aired its series finale, and boy was it an emotional moment for all of us. This means that no more of Lily, Marshall, Barney, Robin and Ted having a drink at MacLaren’s Pub, no more of Barney’s flirt spree, no more of Ted’s sometimes exciting, sometimes painfully boring quest for true love and no more of anything legen…wait for it…dary. Unfortunately, the finale didn’t pan out as per my expectations. It was an ‘okay-ish’ end to what truly was a great show. It didn’t quite feel like ‘How I Met Your Mother’ but rather ...
