After a whole week away at my sister’s (filled with wine and some quality puppy time), I was able to 1) get some work done, and 2) get distracted from said work with television as per usual. It’s a problem. And yes, the selection is still as random as it gets, but only because I like variety with my shows just as I enjoy them with my books. My family likes to joke that I’ll just watch whatever is put in front of me. I like to call it being well-rounded in all areas of entertainment. Sue me.
AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
This one was a catch-up, because boy, did I need to catch up. The show has been a bit up and down for me all throughout but I’ve kept up with it well enough. As a Joss Whedon fan, I refuse to give up on it just yet and feel I should trust his judgments. Also, am I the only who’s still rooting for Skyeward to happen because it feels pretty lonely on this ship.
Watching this show is like eating candy and chasing it down with champagne. After getting over the fact that the Hot Prince Charming is Peter Pevensie (mind blown), it becomes super addictive. It definitely fills a Gossip Girl void, and always makes me wonder how the actual royal family is reacting to it/how scandalized the queen would be. I laugh just thinking about it.
Confession: I love the CW. They have mastered the art of throwing ridiculously beautiful people into ridiculous situations, and I love it. I have wayyyy too many shows there I have to catch up on/watch, but when this one-season floater surfaced on Netflix I just had to see it. While nothing can compare to the alien romance of Roswell, this show holds its own while tackling issues of prejudice and diversity. Also there’s a lot of chronic staring syndrome, as pictured above.
This show was another catch-up, but it is SO FUNNY. I still have a few more episodes to catch up on and will do so lovingly probably later today since it’s just so easy to watch and will pick you up when you’re so deep in revisions/editing that you can’t even see straight.
DANCING WITH THE STARS
My love for this show knows no bounds, and I’m so sad that we’re nearing the final weeks because how will I fill that dancing show void now?!?! This week my faves killed it (their trio jazz routine above just had me bouncing in my seat the whole time), but I also fell in love with an amazing Paso Doble later in the show which might’ve inspired a new story idea for me! Ugh, THIS IS WHY I LOVE DANCE SHOWS. Makin’ it rain with the writing inspiration.
This week will probably be lacking in television because I will be enjoying a week of Texas at the RT Booklovers Convention! I’m super pumped because it’s the first writers con I’ve ever been to (and I’ll be meeting my super amazing writing buds Maddy and Akshaya for the first time holla), but there’s still SO MUCH to do before then. So much preparing, so much packing—
Oh right, oops, have to do that right now.
See y’all real later 🙂
