Welcome to the latest Things I’m Obsessed With!
I am so in love with Breaking Bad. It’s the best show on TV, I think, and the show keeps getting better each season. With its fifth season (and last, unfortunately), each EPISODE is getting better. I hate that According to Jim was on TV for eight seasons and Breaking Bad only gets five.
It’s a hard show to recommend to people, because it’s not one of those shows where you can just tune out. You have to pay attention the entire time. And it’s also pretty dark—most of the characters are at least somewhat unlikable. But it’s also a fascinating character study, in terms of how Walter White sells his soul over the course of the show. I’m not sure if he can redeem himself but I also think that at this point, if the show ends with him in prison, he’ll be lucky. (I’m pretty sure he’s going to die.)
I’m starting to think about scary movies, which makes sense because we’re getting closer to October and A Nightmare on Kel’s Street! I don’t know for sure what I’ll watch (suggestions welcome!) but I think a Paranormal Activity marathon is very likely. And, of course, I will be watching Halloween. :)
The new Laura Lippman comes out Tuesday. I am insanely excited for it, even though it’s not scheduled to be reviewed on my blog until the end of the month. (Which reminds me: I have been doing SO WELL at sticking to my reading schedule!)
If you don’t read Laura Lippman, I can’t recommend her enough. Her books are smart and suspenseful and just really well-written. The day one comes out is always a high point of my reading year.
So what are you obsessed with this week?
