Watching Telly

I have spent most of today screw­ing off shame­less­ly. It felt good to do that for a change, after study­ing every day for weeks. I watched Sher­lock, Har­ry’s Law and Wal­lan­der. I fin­ished read­ing Hound­ed by Kevin Hearne, then start­ed Hexed. I did go to the library and pick up more books for study­ing, but […]

Scary Movies?

Anoth­er NaBloPo­Mo prompt: Do you like scary movies that make you jump? I’m not old enough to watch scary movies! I find them far too fright­en­ing, indeed, night­­mare-induc­ing. Sam required that I watch The Crow with him when we’d just start­ed dat­ing him (I can’t remem­ber why any­more) and, like a fool, I did­n’t refuse absolutely. […]

TV Commercials?

Plinky asked, “Com­mer­cials these days: Most­ly enter­tain­ing, or most­ly annoy­ing?” How would I know? Seri­ous­ly, who watch­es com­mer­cials? Most of what I watch is online, and I don’t pay atten­tion to the ads or they’ve been edit­ed out. If I’m with my daugh­ter she has some ser­vice that lets her even pause live tele­vi­sion for […]

My Opinion of Reality TV

Plinky asked, “What do you think of real­i­ty tele­vi­sion? Do you watch any real­i­ty TV shows?” I don’t watch any real­i­ty TV shows, and I detest every one that I’ve seen except The Sing-Off. Even with it, all I care about is lis­ten­ing to the music. I can’t stand the non­sense with the judges, the “let’s […]

Lost Girl and Canadian Television

Katie recent­ly intro­duced me to Lost Girl, a show that is very obvi­ous­ly NOT an Amer­i­can show. It’s exot­ic and amus­ing and sexy—especially sexy. But then what do you expect of a show about a suc­cubus? I knew it was­n’t Amer­i­can as soon as I heard some of the ban­ter, which would­n’t fly on broadcast […]

Music from Defying Gravity?

We’ve been watch­ing Defy­ing Grav­i­ty on Hulu, and enjoy­ing it. The music is one of the appeal­ing fac­tors, but I can’t find any infor­ma­tion about what songs by which per­form­ers are used in most of the episodes. TV.com has infor­ma­tion for two of them, but not the rest. I don’t sup­pose any of you know […]

An Update Instead of a Book Review!

I looked back at my recent entries and real­ized that it’s been a real­ly long time since I post­ed much of any­thing sub­stan­tive. I’m com­ing out of a long peri­od of being near­ly zomb­i­fied thanks to one of my med­ica­tions. I did­n’t real­ize that was hap­pen­ing, as I’d been on that drug for years without […]

Dollhouse Fans? TV stuff

Do any of you record Doll­house? We don’t do cable, so Katie and I have been watch­ing it stream­ing on Hulu. This com­ing Fri­day’s episode isn’t going to be streamed, though, and we don’t want to miss it. Any chance of some help? Pret­ty please? It’s fair­ly amaz­ing how much you can find to watch […]

Happy November!

I fig­ure it’s past time I check in again. Obvi­ous­ly, I’ve giv­en up on the Blog365 thing. I did make it 9 months or so, at least. Katie turned 18 at the end of Octo­ber, so she vot­ed in the elec­tion for the first time. I’m real­ly tick­led that her first time was so his­toric! We’ll […]
