20 June 2014

What are you watching now? It's going to be such a nice night outside but all I want to do is watch Orange Is The New Black.
I have been watching and rewatching all 4 seasons of Two Fat Ladies. I've just started my third time through.

I'm watching s02 of OitNB too. Not sure I like it but I feel obliged now.

I've been watching Veep and Fargo.
Both have ended. Just like Mad Men and Breaking Bad. So I'm looking for something new.
Are there any new good series starting?

Danf got me hooked on watching Veronica Mars when I do treadmill runs. I'm just now coming to the end of Season 1. We were tracking Game of Thrones and The Good Wife, both now on break until next season, and we are watching the latest iteration of 24, without much enthusiasm. And we never miss Jeopardy!, which we DVR every weekday.

I was looking forward to Orange but after binging on the previous episodes, and awaiting the new season, I read the book. I'm a good deal less interested in it now that I know how fictionalized the series is.

Sitting in the wings for when we get around to picking up our viewing again are remaining episodes of House of Cards, along with a look at the original British series.

Not much. Sometimes I catch an episode of "Cutthroat Kitchen" or "Say Yes to the Dress" online if I need to rot my brain. Saving OitNB for my maternity leave, I think, though I may not be interested enough to pick it up.

I haven't seen OitNB, not sure if it's showing in the UK yet. I watch most of my TV on catch-up or online.

At the moment I'm on a Mad Men kick. I never watched it when it first started, but gaspode and a friend at work - two people whose judgment I trust - raved about it, so I started watching it from Season 1, Ep 1. I'm mid-way through Season 6 now and I hate Don Draper with a passion. What a vile piece of shit that man is. But Roger Sterling never ceases to appal and/or delight in equal measure.

Once I'm done with Mad Men, I'll probably watch Broadchurch, which I also missed when it was first on.

I also like Masterchef Australia, which is online. It's so different from the American version, which is amped up for maximum drama. The Aussie Masterchef is all about the food. The contestants are supportive of each other and it makes for a far more enjoyable viewing than the histrionics of Gordon Ramsay &co.

Oooh, and I forgot about Fargo. We are a week behind you guys and so we get the final episode on Sunday. Can't wait.

My shows have all finished in the past few weeks. Veep, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Fargo, The Americans a couple of weeks earlier...

So, as of Tuesday, nothing. Might start OiTNB, or maybe Orphan Black. Something black.

Second season of RECTIFY starts tonight.

I just got Season 1, Disc 1 of Orange from Netflix. Some of my students love it (it received a particularly passionate endorsement from a young man named Yannuel), so I thought I'd give it a try. Jon's mildly interested, too. We also still have the last two episodes of Sons of Anarchy available on Netflix (we'll have to wait for Season 6--the current season--to become available). It's not for the faint of heart.

Speaking of not for the faint of heart, somehow I've been sucked into Penny Dreadful, on Showtime (included with our cable). Talk about brutal, but with characters like Dr. Frankenstein and Dorian Gray, intriguing.

Two of my favorites, Grimm (my favorite show) and Once Upon a Time, are between seasons. Survivor's between seasons, too. Meh.

Wimbledon is also about to begin. I can watch tennis twelve hours straight. It's even better live. I already have my tickets to the U.S. Open (just Day Passes for a few days-- decent seats at Ashe cost a whopping $950 to $1450! Day passes are only $60-$80 for the whole day and into the evening).

At this very moment I'm watching Masterchef. A young woman is running around in desperate need of yeast.

(It's entirely possible I watch too much TV.)

I just finished with this week's Watch and Riff Along with MST3K stream put together by MeFi's jharris (and promoted on FanFare), and boy are my puns tired. "The Stalking Hand"? Armed and dangerous? from Palm Strings? I hope the soundtrack doesn't include "Under My Thumb"...

And now I'm watching webcomicker Lar DeSouza's weekly "watch me draw stuff" show... Artist streams are fun as long as they're by people who draw funny comics.

My media mix has gotten SO streamy lately...

So sad to have finished OitNB. It was making maternity leave bearable (love the kid, hate being home all the time). I need a new addicting show to binge watch.
