Luther

A short break from Star WarsAPalooza to appreciate some Idris. Three things that must happen to make me happy:

– Ygritte says “You know nothing John Luther.”
– The first bit of news he receives is total BS.
– Someone spills his tea and he is forced to change his shirt….oh…. and then magically becomes Bond, James Bond.

Annual Game Of Thrones Re-Watch

New season starts in a month, I should have time for a slow re-watch. (watches one episode)
OMG! I forgot how awesome this show is and that episode went too fast (watches 3 more episodes, takes a nap)
My favorite character has to be Arya, or Jon Snow, or Tyrion, no, the dragons, ahhh! I love them all but Cersei. (watches 4 more episodes, eats a snack, feeds cats)
NOOOOO! Stop killing all the awesome!! (Wipes away tiny tears, decides sleep is overrated, has another snack, watches final 2 episodes)
That’s all?? It can’t be over! How will I make it to the next season? Debates starting rewatch from the series beginning….
Repeat scenario annually.

Television For Procrastination

Music is awesome but I can still get things done when listening so sometimes I have to warm up the television and couch to prevent any actual accomplishments. My thoughts on the shows I have watched over the last few months when I have have not been doing my To Do list.

The Good
Last Week With John Oliver – Funny and informative outrage ftw.
Fargo – I will watch it again, and renewed for Season 2 which pleases me.
Game of Thrones – Already waiting for the next season.
Silicon Valley – The final episode sealed my love of the show.
Veep – I wish I could insult people as creatively.
Almost Royal – I have no idea if the people they interact know this is a gag but the two “royals” are hilarious in character.
Idris Elba: King of Speed – Hot dude, great voice and fast cars. Works.
The Bridge – Famke Potente is an excellent creepy addition for the new season.
The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail – Hard to transfer a live night of comedy to 22 min of TV but it is funny and I want to hang out with these guys.
Dominion – I started watching and couldn’t stop. Lots of intrigue and creepers walking on the ceiling.
Louie – Uncomfortable humor makes me think and laugh and think again later.
Vikings – Violent but a good story and with some amazing blue eyes as well.
Hannibal – Violent with a great story that kept me guessing all season.
In The Flesh – A different take on zombies.
The Americans – Great second season and I did not see the twist at the end coming.

The WTH
Penny Dreadful – Eva Green was awesome but I could never decide of I actually liked the show or just liked the weird.
Salem – I watched, but I will pass on any more.
The Strain – Two episodes down but I can not decide if this is good or just entertaining fun.

The Meh
Halt and Catch Fire – The ladies are awesome and the dudes are not likeable. This seems to be a trend in period pieces.
Food Network Star – Still watching, still no favorite.
Drunk History – Amusing when I catch it but not a must-see for me.
The Wil Wheaton Project – I watch it to geek out with Wil.
Married and You’re The Worst – The pilots for both were good but it is premature to say if they are keepers.
Suits – I like the show but the long story arcs get a bit tedious.
Orphan Black – I should like it more but it seems like they are going in circles at time to add more clones.

The Awful

True Blood – This season sucks and not in the hot way Eric used to suck but in the stupid annoying way Bill has always sucked but dumber.
Sweden – I wanted to like it but it is not funny and makes me read subtitles too much.

I need to break up with my TV so I can get more done.
