Hahaha, I’m so good at not starting a new weekly topic and then immediatly abandoning it. Whoops.
Actually I was in Nicaragua with very poor Wifi and too many cocktails to write a coherent sentence. And while I’m still not fully caught up on all the TV that I missed, that shouldn’t deprive us from having lots of things to say.
American Crime – I am REALLY not happy about the turn that the did this week with having Taylor shoot the kid at school. It feels like they are just making the story super convoluted for the sake of being shocking and that is the opposite of what I like about this show. Also, what was that whole thing with Eric and the van guy? Ugh, American Crime, I had such high hopes for you, why are you hurting me so??
The 100 – I haven’t watched last week’s episode and it is causing me a lot of stress. However, I am confident that it was excellent. While on my vacation I actually read the books that the series is based on and I can confidently say that the show is approximately a billion times better. If you have ever wondered if you were missing out by not reading them, let me put your mind at ease and save you the time.
Emmerdale – I miss Aaron and I am very concerned that Robert is going to do something extraordinarily stupid that will threaten Aaron’s sexual assault case against his dad. Don’t do it Robert! Resist your natural inclinations to make everything worse!
Outlander – This show is not new but I just finished watching the first season and I have a lot of feelings about it. Mostly they are that Jamie is the best and I love him. Also, I would watch an entire series of Claire and Jenny hunting down rogues and being the best. The last two episodes were REALLY hard to watch but I thought they did an amazing job with incredibly tough subject matter and depicted it in a way that was nuanced and truthful, hitting a mark that many, many shows fall desperately short of (*cough*cough*gameofthrones*cough*). I am really excited about next season, though I’m concerned that it’s going to be a lot more of the politics, which to me is the least interesting part of the show, mostly because I’m really dumb and have no idea what they are talking about 90% of the time.
What is everyone else watching?
