Her Beat: Black Sails and Comic Book TV Jasmin is an action TV junkie. If there are explosions and elaborate stunt sequences, there's a good chance she's watching. When she's not watching great action, she's either reading it off the pages of comics or playing on her Xbox One. And if TV or film has been adapted from a video game, you can be sure she'll judge it by the measuring stick that was Mortal Kombat (it is the greatest video game film OF ALL TIME). You can also find her on Twitter @fiorebianca live tweeting some of her favorite shows and sports.
