One of the tricky things about living in this day, the day of the Golden Age of Television is that there are just so many great shows on TV right now. I feel like pretty much all I do is watch TV and I still don’t feel like I’m watching enough. The DSM VI is going to have “Netflix Anxiety” as one of their official disorders.
Anyways, I thought we could blog meet every Tuesday and discuss our shows.
Basically just an open thread for people to discuss their weekly shows with each other. Here are my thoughts for the week (Spoiler alert for anyone not caught up on these shows):
American Crime (not the OJ one)- if there’s one thing I’ve learned about this show, it’s that every expectation I have gets turned on its head immediately. I definitely think that there’s more going on. The basketball players are clearly hiding something and Kevin is acting a LOT more upset than an innocent person would. My suspicion is that he is the one who drugged Taylor and maybe he and the other basketball guys did something to Taylor after Eric and Taylor hooked up. Because of the drugs, Taylor can’t remember what happened clearly enough to know that Eric wasn’t responsible. This show continues to impress me every week as far as how unique and groundbreaking it is for a major network. However, I’m still not sure how the racial stuff at the public school is going to tie in to the major storyline and because of that, I really don’t care about it yet.
The 100 – I pretty much love everything about this show to the point where I can’t form coherent thoughts about it. I wish I was as cool as Lexa or Clarke or Ravin or Octavia and Bellamy makes me have feelings. I can’t wait for Lexa and Clarke to have crazy hate sex because that shit is inevitable. However, if they killed off Jaha and Abby, I wouldn’t be mad.
Emmerdale – I know that no one else watches my British soaps but this week has been gripping and heartbreaking and I just want to cover Aaron in blankets and hugs forever. I don’t know that I’ve ever enjoyed seeing someone get punched in the face more than Gordon.
Don’t even talk to me about Degrassi: Next Class right now. No show since Glee has done me wrong like that.
I am so far behind on Supernatural and The Flash right now, I need to just skip work for a week and catch up on everything.
Anyways, what are you all watching? Let’s discuss!
