So there appears to be interest in a revival of The Office. Fuck that. What have you been watching?
I want a Happy Endings revival! Nothing else matters! Although I should be careful what I wish for because I thought I wanted a new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm and when I got it, I ended up hating it.
I enjoyed Hunted on Amazon Prime, think of it like an 8-hour movie because it was a limited series but they did a great job. I also liked Manhunt on Netflix, aside from the episode that made me feel empathy for the Unabomber. It’s not easy to tell a story about the search for someone we all know is in prison and make it interesting, but they did it!
Yes, I hate that we keep getting revivals of shows that already overstayed their welcome (and I loved The Office, but come on), when they could bring back the ones that should never have been canceled!
I finished watching Godless. Not impressed. I am now catching up on Younger, and I am enjoying this season.
The O.C. is a show I’ll throw on while I’m eating lunch or playing Candy Crush, and I’m surprised that I like it as much as I do. Peter Gallagher is pretty damn funny. And it takes a confident man to rock those eyebrows, but he pulls it off.
I saw that Southland is on Hulu. It’s been years since I’ve seen it, but I remember it being excellent. I think Hulu let me know it’s there since the actor who plays Ryan on the O.C. is in Southland. It’s a really well done character study of police in LA.
I have also come to the realization that Dawson (of Dawson’s Creek) and Ted (of How I Met Your Mother) are the same character.
Both consider themselves to be “romantic,” but they are actually desperate, creepy, and selfish.
I have been watching Hart of Dixie again and it is still a delight. I will probably throw on a few Christmas episodes of shows this week like the Parks and Rec ones and the one Gilmore Girls one. Anybody have any favorites?
I might fire up some old Simpsons episodes. It’s been too long since I’ve watched Mr. Plow (which isn’t even a Christmas one, I don’t think, but I always loved that Springfield got snow more than just on Christmas).
First off, I just came from Trader Joe’s where they were OUT OF CHOCOLATE CROISSANTS! There was a sign for them, but no boxes. I. Am. Crushed.
I’m embarassed to say that for the past couple of days my in-the-background TV show has been Property Brothers: Buying and Selling. To make up for that, yesterday I watched Antiques Roadshow and then a documentary called Supergirl, about a tween/teen, Orthodox Jewish girl who is a world champion weight lifter. Very recommended.
HGTV is one of my 4 background networks, too. One time they had some version of Property Brothers where they were building a dream home for one of the brothers and his fiance. I couldn’t take more than 5 minutes.
My mom always has HGTV on and last time I was home I heard my dad muttering about how sick he is of those guys.
I saw a commercial for that one and I knew better than to tempt fate.
Related to terrible TV that I watch, while I was in DC I watched a lot of cable shows I can’t watch at home, which in the morning was primarily Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta. Then while I was waiting for my flight in the DC airport I had the amazing celebrity sighting of Monte from SYTTDA!! If I had seen him literally three days earlier I would have had no clue who he was, but he had been a very prominent part of my stay in our nation’s capital. It was very satisfying.
Random Q for my wise friends: what’s the deal with airline miles? I just got an email from AA saying I have 11,600 miles that expire in June 2018 but it looks like the lowest miles to go anywhere is 15,000. How do I use them? Can I put them towards a trip and pay the difference? Should I just forget about them and move on with my life?
June is 100 months away. You might get to 15k by then! You are always going places.
You have several options, including but not limited to:
Buying additional miles to get enough for a flight. They’re about $30 per 1000 miles.
If you have certain credit cards, they have reduced mileage options: https://www.aa.com/i18n/aadvantage-program/miles/redeem/award-travel/reduced-mileage-awards.jsp
You can see if you have enough to redeem them for something useful at places like points.com
Give them to friends/family/charity
