Shavua tov to all my fellow Srugim travelers!! We have a roundup of news to share with you about our favorite people in the whole wide world. Let’s divide the hadashot into news about the actors (as hard as it believe there is a life outside of Srugim–as kanye says: As pop stars we’re all in this shit together! We on the inside of the TV!l) and news about plotlines for season three.
No Virginia , Amir isn’t real:
- Mazel tov to Yuval Sheref, the actress who plays Nitzan! She is engaged to Shlomi Sheben. They are both ridiculously good looking and apparently he proposed to her during a trip to Rome. Well done.
- Babies all around!! Tali Sharon (Hodaya) and Yael Sharoni (Yifat) both had babies in the off season, apparently delaying the shooting of season three. Although honestly, we all are for unwanted pregnancies in television and would love to see an Avri love child, just saying.
All we really want for season three is for Avri to come back, really
- Season two brought Roi, the gay heartbreaker. What will Season Three bring? So far, we have two leads. The first is about two haredi career women named Fayge and Chani who will stir things up a bit. Although I am personally doubtful they are actually haredi because sometimes the Israeli press/secular Israelis thinks all religious people are haredi, but those names are pretty hardcore haredi. Either way, all the merrier! I’m going to say that Nati is going to be all over these hotties, especially because they are going to married with kids and we know thats Nati’s weakness.
- Speaking of Nati (sigh), he’s gonna have a new friend!!! Apparently, this friend Avinoam, in addition to being Very Hot, is a secular doctor who thinks dati people are kinda weird (thats legit) but is still open minded. Hey Reut–we found someone for you!! She’s gonna need a good rebound post Roi. Only time will tell if he lives up to Avri, the greatest character of all time, proving the general consensus that the best guys on Srugim are the hilonim, while the hiloniot are completely nuts.
Also, you may be wondering how we have occupied our time since Srugim has been on hiatus. Fellow blog-reader, you are in luck. We have discovered Haim Aherim (which recently got a shout out in the New York Times), which may be the most amazing show ever since Srugim. It is a drama about a yeshiva guy who is hurt in the war with Gaza, and does dance therapy. Quickly, he discovers that dancing is a hell of a lot better than learning in yeshiva. Also, he’s really hot. Really, really, really hot. Also, Nitzan is in it! Woo. She plays the girlfriend–another datiya–hmmm. Read more here and watch all 13 glorious episodes here from the official Keshet website–no viruses! It starts off a bit goofy, but quickly gets AMAZING. Also, a warning. Let’s just say that they don’t quite adhere to Laizy’s no nudity policy. Ahem. Yakir, we love you.
Also, because as I read in some dumb Israeli newspaper over the summer, being dati is the new black, there is another show in the making!! Urim V’Tumim is about a “fictional elite Yeshiva Har Tzur”, aka Har Etzion, aka Gush. (Really, that was subtle there.) Wooo, a show about Gush!! We hope they include the pretentious American boys there for the year who make sweatshirts that say: Intellectual Property of Gush. It’s also a drama, and is going to be epic although the beards are a bit sketch. We cant wait to watch as they struggle with modernity and being the next generation of religious Zionism, aka skip shiur to go into Emek and ogle hotties.
All of these shows have active FB pages, which we have linked in this post and thankfully, post frequently so that we don’t have to do real work and just dream about Israeli television and be semi distracted until Srugim comes back, hopefully in the summer. Anyway, what do YOU think is going to happen? Leave your predictions in the comments. Are Yifat-Amir done for? (Amifat? Yifir? It’s no Chair) Is Roi going to be closeted forever? Tell us your thoughts.
