Welcome to my new blog where I will be writing about my thoughts and feelings towards various Television Shows.
For those of you who don’t know who I am, I am Terence Lui, a freshman of fall 2018 from Hong Kong studying at the Georgia Institute of Technology. This is my first time studying aboard. I am currently majoring in mechanical engineering and I expect to graduate in the year 2022. I know some of you are interested in my English background, here is a brief overview of it.
Hong Kong – My Hometown
The English course I am currently taking, English-1102 on Television and Feminism, is my first English course at Gatech and the first college-level English course I have taken. However, I took 2 Years of English A – Language and Literature in the International Baccalaureate program back in high school and another year in pre-IB. For the rest of my 15 years of education, English classes have mostly been focused on grammar and reading skills. I must admit, English writing is definitely not where my strength lies. Instead, I would say I’m good at infographics (Visual Communication). Nonetheless, by the end of this semester, I hope to improve both my oral and written communication skills in English. As often, I struggle with speaking and writing confidently while also unable to convey my ideas clearly using such means. The reason of which probably lies in the major factors such as accent, word choice and sentence structure. By the end of this semester, I hope to become more confident and skillful in both oral and written communication.
In this series of blog, I’ll be reviewing the first season of the Canadian TV Show “Killjoy”, which was first released on June 19, 2015. As a note, television drama has never been my thing, no matter North American TV shows nor Chinese ones. Instead, I usually watch documentaries or the news as well as factual YouTube videos especially those on tech or history and I enjoy them really much. So, please forgive me for any misunderstanding or misinterpretation I may have towards television shows.

Why did I choose to review Killjoys? This is actually quite complicated. But to sum it all up, I have always been interested in sci-fi books and movies and I especially enjoyed movies such as Interstellar and Star Trek. Killjoys have been recommended to me by my professor, and it fits perfectly into my narrow window of interest, so I am going to give it a try (and probably watch a season a day as I’m bad at stopping myself).
Hope everyone will enjoy my upcoming blog posts, see you soon.
