Welcome to the latest Things I’m Obsessed With!
So basically everything I’m obsessed with this week falls under this category. First, I’ve been catching up on Scandal, thanks to BET running all the episodes over the course of three days. I’m currently in the second season and, barring some sort of catastrophe, I will be watching the third season live. I already am cursing the idea of having to wait a week between shows! Because I am still reading a lot, I’ve decided to limit myself to one episode a day (two episodes on Thursdays and Fridays, my weekend). It’s hard enough having to wait a day to see what comes next!
After I catch up with Scandal, I will be watching Downton Abbey. I’ve promised my best friend that I’ll be able to watch season four live, so I have three seasons to watch between now and January. (SO doable.)
But what to watch after that? I have a bunch of choices: The Wire, Ray Donovan, The Bridge, Friday Night Lights, Twin Peaks, Everwood, Once and Again, Homeland, The Walking Dead, Sherlock and Game of Thrones. So feel free to weigh in via comment. What do I watch post-Downton Abbey?
On a related note, I mentioned a few days ago that Kathy is starting a TV blog, which I have shamelessly attached myself to. The idea is to have it up and running before our shows come back! I’m ridiculously excited to get going on this. She has the best ideas and I’m so lucky to be able to benefit. (On a popular TIOW note, you’ll be happy-but-not-surprised to know that we’ve already started talking about next year’s BEA. And not just recently, either.)
Finally, of course, is the final season of Breaking Bad. I can sum up my thoughts on these recent episodes this way: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m also watching Talking Bad, which is basically showrunners and cast members talking about the show with “celebrity superfans.” I generally do not appreciate the superfan input but I absolutely love the insight from the cast and writers.
So what are you obsessed with this week?
