Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I don’t have cable. My roommate and I decided to get rid of it after a hellish (one of many) ordeals with Comcast after moving to Salem. We switched companies, and we decided to just go for fast, fast, fast internet instead. Plus, we can hook up Apple TV to our televisions and still see the shows we like. It works for us, plus it’s cheap…and it didn’t come with a contract. That’s a plus because I’m moving in, y’know…3 months. I digress.
There are so many new shows out that I can’t really keep up with them. I tried a few of them, despised most of them and was left with a couple to keep up with on Hulu. I’ve also given up on some of my favorite old shows in favor of new ones. Then there’s the few shows that I’ll be dying for in the mid-season interlude, of course. Now, as an aside, we really don’t watch much TV. We watch a couple shows when we’re eating dinner in the evening, and that’s about it.
Shows We’re Watching
A. Arrow – It’s finally finding it’s groove…and he’s really, really attractive. It works.
B. The Originals – Think Vamps circa season one…much more fun & mysterious.
C. Revenge – Guilty pleasure all the way! The fact that it’s still suspenseful is amazing.
D. Reign – Iffy on this one, but it’s super entertaining…albeit NOT historically accurate at all.
Shows We Quit Watching
A. Bones – I love Booth & Bones, but the magic was them NOT being together.
B. Supernatural – Love Sam & Dean, but I think I’m going to save it for Netflix now.
C. The Vampire Diaries – It just feels like a never-ending sob story these days. I’m bored.
D. Revolution – Loved the first half of season one, but I was so bored by the end of the season.
Shows We Are Looking Forward To
A. The 100 – I actually read the book & I didn’t love it, but it reads like a TV show, so it could work.
B. The Following – This show is so sadistic. I totally got Ryan hooked on it. It’s really well done.
C. Hannibal – I’m terrified of this show, but Hugh Dancy is in it, and it’s really, really visually incredible.
And that’s it. Naturally, I’m super behind on everything, but I have a lot to do outside of watching shows these days, and I love it! Am I missing out on anything in particular? Have you watched any of these shows, and if so, what do you think?
