T.V. Catch-up

Since Scott left, I've watched all of Friday Night Lights again and all of Weeds again.  I believe those are two of the best shows ever created.  And reruns are comforting to me, if we're being honest.
Therefore, I've been neglecting my DVR.  Let's review...

Downton Abbey.  I just watched the finale two weeks late and I wasn't entirely impressed.  Nothing shocking or out of the ordinary occurred.  Meh.

TWD. I'm three weeks behind.  The second episode of the season put me to sleep.  While I truly love the show, Scott is the one who prompts me to make sure it's on come 8pm on Sunday nights.  Without him here to do that, I struggle to pay attention when things are slow.

Frozen.  Oh sorry.  I meant Once Upon a Time.  I haven't watched since November.  I like Frozen just as much as the next person, but this show has been taken over by it and I don't know where it's going.  The brilliant writing has stalled because they're desperately trying to pull in new fans or something.  I don't know.  Has it gotten better since fall?

Revenge.  I haven't watched since December.  It's recorded...I'm just not invested.

Better Call Saul!  This show might end up being as brilliant as Breaking Bad.  Really enjoying it. It's a spinoff that gives a backstory and, man, I would love for Jesse Pinkman to make an appearance.

The Following.  Season 3 started on Fox, and the first two episodes were good enough.  I hope Natalie Zea makes an appearance soon (Claire is insufferable, but I like her. Oxymoron).  I sincerely hope, also, that it takes off in a whirlwind of suspense.  I watched the entire first season in one day last year.

Justified.  I am two (count them: two) seasons behind and I feel awful about that.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.  I found this on Netflix and it's kind of LOL funny.  I actually spit out my tortilla chip during the first episode when Jane Krakowski threw the full bottle of water in the garbage when Kimmy said she didn't want water.  And I like Ellie Kemper.  This show is kind of like Erin from The Office on steroids. And when you see who plays Rev. Wayne, your jaw will drop. Also, love that homage to Antoine Dodson and the O.J. trial. Brilliant.

Recommend a t.v. show!


  1. Once Upon A Time does get better, everything gets pulled together and it makes sense.

  2. I haven't been impressed with TWD so far. I feel like nothing happened in last week's show. I'm on season 3 on Netflix and really enjoying it but the current season kind of bores me. I started Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and love it so far!

  3. I have been wanting to re-watch Weeds! Can I even tell you how many times I still get the opening song stuck in my head? I used to love Revenge, but maybe a year ago stopped watching. That may be another Netflix binge later down the road. Better Call Saul is so awesome! I don't know that I want to say I like it more than BB but it's really, really good.

  4. I like the people in Kimmy, it's definitely on my list.

    I actually enjoyed the change of pace for a Downton Finale - pretty happy and no one died.

    Friday Night Lights will always rank at the top.

  5. I'm confused with walking dead but then I don't always pay attention. I heard of that Kimmy show, I must check it out.

  6. I freaking LOVE The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I LOL'ed through basically the entire first episode. "Apocalypse, apocalypse...we caused it with our dumbness." So many quotable lines in that show. I've only had time to watch the first 3 (?) episodes but I'm planning on marathon-ing through it soon.

    I also need to watch episode 2 of The Following. Episode 1 didn't exactly wow me. Do you have Hulu Plus? Another show I've really been liking that's new is Secrets and Lies, with Ryan Phillippe. There's only 3 episodes on there so far but I think you'd like it.

  7. My sister told me last night that I need to watch the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt because it's so funny. We don't have Netflix though. Maybe I should get with it and get it already.

  8. I haven't seen Kimmy Schmidt but I've heard a lot of people say they like it, and it seems like a fun show!

  9. The new season of Once is good so far! We have also been recording The Goldbergs on ABC and it is so funny, definitely our new favorite show.

  10. I definitely plan to catch up on Kimmy Schmidt. I've heard good things!

  11. Criminal minds is my favorite show.
