What We’re Watching: ORPHAN BLACK

Spoiler Free! I promise! We don’t watch a lot of TV lately. I watch So You Think You Can Dance but I watch it the next day and I fast-forward through everything but the dancing. That bring a 2-hour show down to about under an hour. I watch Franklin and Bash because it’s light-hearted and funny. That’s my basic weekly TV schedule lately. Less than two hours a week. That’s unheard of for me. I do like to have shows on OnDemand or Netflix or something that I can turn to when I want to watch something. Right now it’s...

Alphas - Season 2 15

Putting Way Too Much Thought Into My Entertainment Choices

It’s no secret that I love television, but I have mixed feelings about getting hooked on the type of shows everyone gets hooked on. In actuality? I get very angry at 99% of television. I hate it when I am hooked on a show that then lets me down after giving it several years of my life. (I’m looking at you Downton Abbey). Or even worse, if I dedicate a lot of my interest and love and enthusiasm and then a third party takes it away from me. (I’m looking at you SyFy for taking away Alphas). I want a...

“Grown-Up” TV That I Actually Enjoy

I do not watch what I call “Grown-Up” TV. Shows like Game of Thrones or Walking Dead. Shows that no one who’s not at least high school aged would be allowed to watch. But I do watch Dramas! Just shows that wouldn’t require an R-rating. But it’s not about the explicit material, although I don’t like that stuff. It’s about a note of light-heartedness. I need to have something to counterbalance the seriousness. Some levity to negate the crime. Which is why Castle is one of my favorite television shows. Every episode is about a murder, but they never try...

Darren Criss Makes ‘Teenage Dream’ Break Your Heart

My love for Darren Criss is well-documented as I discovered him when he hit YouTube as Harry Potter in “A Very Potter Musical.” He then – of course – gained more fame by being cast as the love-interest of my favorite Glee member. Blaine and Kurt are – without a doubt – my favorite couple on TV and the one thing that helps me overlook the nineteen million other things that Glee does wrong every week. Darren Criss is a musician and has performed many places since he wowed Glee fans singing Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” and – as a...

Sometimes I Watch Crappy Shows Because I’m Attached To The Characters

I hope you all saw that I updated yesterday…but if you didn’t? EVERYTHING IS OKAY. Well, the baby is still wiggling and his heart is still beating (I say “he” because I prefer it over “it”), but the hematoma is a tad bit bigger which means it’s not cooperating like we had hoped. Evidently this just happens sometimes. They don’t all just slowly absorb into the lining like it did with Nikki, sometimes they become giant assholes and pester you the entire pregnancy. Which WILL make me insane, in case you’re wondering. So…YAY for baby heartbeats and potential insanity! I...
