Currently Obsessed With is a monthly (but sometimes more) feature where I talk about what’s going on in my life and what I’m obsessed with!
So, in my last currently obsessed with post, I mentioned that I was going to do a much needed separate post on t.v., since I’ve been watching A TON of t.v. (And the article edition is coming soon, I just need to sort through everything!)
It’s going to be a long one, because I swear I’m watching ALL OF THE SHOWS, even though I’m nowhere near it.
What I’m Watching On Netflix:
I’ve been watching American Horror Story– just season 2, since I watched season 1 ages ago, and season 3 isn’t available yet. Which I don’t mind, since each season has no relation to any of the other seasons. I’m really excited about the next season, which starts up this week!
I’ve also been watching Hart Of Dixie, and I can’t believe I’ve only just started watching it! I’m not completely caught up, since I’ve only seen the handful of Season 3 episodes that are on Hulu Plus, so I’m just waiting to see if it’ll show up on Netflix. I’m going to watch it regardless of whether I’m caught up, but it would be nice to see the entire season.
And I’ve also been watching Walking Dead, and I’m hoping to be caught up with that one before season 5 starts, but I’ll watch season 4 and 5 at the same time if I have to.
For some bizarre reason, I got super-excited that all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls is available on netflix. This doesn’t make a lot of sense, since I own all 7 seasons on DVD, but on the plus side, I can now watch it on my Nook and my laptop, so maybe I’ll be watching and posting those recaps more regularly.
And now, for Fall T.V., where things may or may not be spoiler-y, so read at your own risk.
Once Upon A Time: I LOVE that Frozen has come to Storybrooke! I love the scene where Emma is talking to Regina, and I really wish they played Do You Want To Build A Snowman in the backgroud, because I totally love that scene. And Marshmallow! And the scene between Belle and Rumplestiltskin, and the music from Beauty And The Beast! I’m so excited for this!
Resurrection: I’m actually not sure if I want to keep watching it, so I’ll have to see. This may be a show I end up dropping, considering I haven’t seen the premiere yet.
Revenge: I am so glad it’s back! Things will certainly be interesting, with Emily and Victoria, especially. I feel like I need to go back and watch the entire season for a refresher.
Sleepy Hollow: I could not stay awake during the premiere, which was just as well, because I remember being really confused about what was going on. I literally watched season 1 just to figure out what the heck was going on. I’m not sure how I feel about the new sheriff or anything that’s going on. Is it bad that I feel like I need to watch the first couple episodes a few more times to make sense of everything?
Blacklist: James Spader is still awesome. He’s a really good bad guy, and I’m curious about where this season will take us, especially with Keene’s husband being dead…right, he died last season? Maybe I need to go back and watch the finale (because I definitely don’t have time to watch the entire season right now) for to remind myself of what happened. Also: I need to finish last weeks episode.
NCIS: It’s interesting that a guy connected to Ari, from season…2? Ziva’s brother, from when she first came on? I’ve only started watching a few seasons ago, and it’s only because of random episodes on USA, so I’m not sure what season that’s from. What it with his fixation on Gibbs?
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.: FitzSimmons is not the same with Fitz, and no Simmons. It’s breaking my heart, it really is.
Nashville: I’ve been catching it on Hulu, because for some reason, I cannot handle these 10 pm shows (mostly, but we’ll get to that later). Reina is totally with the wrong guy, and Juliette realizing that the baby is likely Avery’s, which will probably change her mind about having an abortion…actually had me staring angrily at the computer screen. I’ll probably have more thoughts in a few more episodes.
Grey’s Anatomy: Meredith is a character I normally like, but she’s pretty damn annoying right now. I know Christina being gone is hard for her, and she wasn’t going to like anyone who came in, but I really hate how she’s treating Pierce.
Scandal: This show is so addictive! I’m glad Olivia’s back in D.C., and I’m wondering if we’ll see more of her father. And Mellie! I feel so much for her right now. And…I just don’t know what else to say, but I think it’s going to be a slightly different season than the previous ones.
How To Get Away With Murder: I am not sure what to think! It feels like there are so many story lines, and I’ve had to watch the episodes a couple times to figure out what was going on- because it feels like there are so many different things going on. I’m actually curious to see how it’ll all come together. I do like Viola Davis’ character, and Wes is pretty awesome! Considering it’s on at 10, I’ve managed to stay mostly awake, but even that didn’t help me keep up with the different story lines.
Reign: I really like it, but…I don’t know. I’m not super enthused about it yet, so I’ll probably give it a few more episodes to see if it catches my interest again. This may be another show I end up dropping…if I do end up dropping something!
An Assortment Of Thoughts:
So, I’m definitely watching a lot of t.v. right now, and for the most part, I can’t seem to drop anything to save my life. I actually want to go back and watch a few shows from the beginning, like Once Upon A Time and Grey’s Anatomy and NCIS, because I feel like I’m overdue for all three shows. Especially NCIS, because I came to it so late. At least you can jump in with it at any time, because I really can’t afford to get it on DVD for the older seasons.
I’m also looking forward to Downton Abbey coming back, but at least that’s a few months away! Seriously, I feel like I’ve had to re-watch so many episodes. Partly because I had trouble staying awake during most everything, but also because I’m feeling fuzzy on stuff because there are so many things to keep track of. I think I need a week or two to get back into keep up with what feels like ALL OF THE SHOWS, instead of 1 or 2 shows like I’ve been doing all summer.
I hope everyone is enjoying all of the awesome t.v. that’s on (whatever it may be).
