Random Thoughts on TV

So I have a few thoughts.

I freaking HATE Victoria and Charlotte on Revenge and I’m obsessed with that show.

Haley and Andy on Modern Family are the only thing keeping my interest this season. I LOVE THEM.

Jackson and April’s storyline is the only thing I like anymore on Grey’s Anatomy.

I love Huck and Quinn’s weird relationship in Scandal. That show is awesome.

And that’s about the extent of my tv watching lately.

Well I went again and didn’t post for two months.

I wish I could say this is not a regular occurrence for me, but it in fact is. I think I went into this year thinking, I’m going to be able to maintain a full time teaching job and watch all my television shows and blog about it. Turns out I really, really can’t. Especially not when my illness, which is severe iron deficiency anemia, has begun to show itself again. So, I’ve been sick. I’ve been coming home every day after school and sleeping anywhere from 5-6 hours a night, getting up and doing grading or finishing lesson plans, only to turn around and sleep another 6-7 hours. Not normal. I finally went to the doctor and discovered my blood levels are super low again and I would need blood transfusions. And that’s not fun. It also has left me no time to watch my shows or blog or do anything but try to recover and still do my job.

But… things are looking up. I caught the ending of the Voice. I was not surprised or upset that Tessanne won. I was however surprised to see how many people hated her online. Twitter users and Youtube commenter were particularly vicious. Tessanne is spectacular and she deserved it.

New Girl is still fabulous. I finally caught up on that show today. I was able to watch Tuesday’s episode live. I still love Coach and Schmidt. They are my favorites.

I haven’t watched Agents of SHIELD since November. I will eventually catch up to it, but I pretty much lost interest after Ward and May slept together.

HIMYM is starting to drag again for me. They need to pick up the pacing. This is one show that I think I’m going to finish watching after the finale has aired. Although, I try to make it a point to watch my favorite show’s finales live, but this one has frustrated me.

Grey’s Anatomy. HOLY FLIPPING CRAP. That cliffhanger. I just want to know what April and Derek are going to do. And the whole story with Calzona is just up and down and all over the place. Grey’s is really good again. I am excited for it to come back in February.

Sherlock is back! I have yet to see the first few episodes, mainly because I have way too many other shows going on, but all the reviews I’ve heard are really good. So that is on my list of shows to catch up on.

I still haven’t caught up on the Dr. Who special. I feel awful about it too, because I LOVE Dr. Who. I REALLY LOVE it. I know that instead of doing this I could be doing that and I don’t know why I feel so guilty about it, I just do. Needless to say, I am excited to see the 12th Doctor and can’t wait for Capaldi.

Shows That I’ve Been Watching in Secret But Now Profess My Undying Love For:
Community
Hart of Dixie
Supernatural
Parks and Rec
The Mindy Project
Psych

I’ve been a Community, Psych, and Supernatural fan from the beginning, but recently got into Hart of Dixie , Parks and Rec, and The Mindy Project. I am behind on all of these series though. I should catch up.

So to wrap up or TL;DR:
I am really behind on my television shows, because I am suffering from a flareup of a disease that I have and I feel guilty, but I’m going to try to do better in the future.

Not that I have any readers.

I suck at blogging. I realize this. I have completely just stopped watching The Voice,  because NBC goes in and out while I’m watching the show and so while I catch up on it after it airs, sometimes I can’t do it until the weekend due to my incredibly stressful job.

Either way, I am loving the top 10 (now). I totally disagreed with Preston Pohl leaving over Will, not that I don’t like Will, I just think Preston has an amazing voice. Regardless I honestly think Tess has a really good chance of winning it all this year. She’s phenomenal.

I have caught up on all the episodes and frankly, my bolded predictions earlier hold true for the most part. I really like Ray and Austin too. This is a pretty good mix of finalists this season.

 

As for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:

I am still loving the show to be honest. I understand that it’s being panned critically by a lot of people and fans who are Marvel fanboys hate the show and want anyone who watches it to go kill themselves. Regardless, I am actually enjoying it for what it is. I have no real issues. Sure, I find Skye annoying sometimes and think it’s really lame to have Ward save the day each episode (well Fitz may have actually saved the day last night, so maybe not), but in all I find it highly entertaining.

 

New Girl:

I am literally so excited about the season now that Coach is a permanent member. I hate “Newbies” who hate Coach and are bashing Damon Wayans Jr. Sorry, but no. He’s hilarious and brings a breath of fresh air into the show. The first few episodes were actually pretty lame until he came back and now he’s a permanent member. So… yeah, I’ll take Coach. P.S. I am so over Schmidt not with CeCe.

 

Grey’s:

Still love Shane, don’t care about Christina and Owen or Owen at all really. Loving the new and improved Richard, concerned about Bailey, and hate April and Matthew together. In general, I just want more Jackson and April scenes even if just for friendship. The season is getting on my nerves.

 

Modern Family:  I need to catch up on the show.

 

HIMYM: LOVING this season apart from Marshall and Daphne. I literally hate that storyline. Everything else is just freaking fantastic!

 

I have recently also started watching The Mindy Project. SOOOO funny. I am loving the show.

 

I am going to try to post more consistently in the future, but probably not. lol.

Week of 10/4/2013

My job is insane, so I haven’t watched must television lately. RIght now, (as in literally), I’m watching The Big Bang Theory and NCIS.

The Big Bang Theory:

OMG. I cannot with Raj. I adore him. I love that Amy and Sheldon absolutely love Raj’s performance.  I seriously love Sheldon and Penny’s friendship, so this episode was just fantastic to showcase it.

“When you’re doing a puzzle, it’s like having a thousand friends!”- Amy’s mother.

LOL @ Bernadette’s competitive behavior. Totally not expecting that.

Amy and Howard was just super awkward. They have literally nothing in common but Neil Diamond, which is just freaking amazing. My college’s official rock song was “Sweet Caroline”, so that just makes me smile.  Not to mention them singing in the car.

Favorite Quotes-

“YES!!!!! MY BRAIN IS BETTER THAN EVERYBODY’S!”- Sheldon

NCIS-

Tony and Ziva destroyed me. I just can’t with this show for awhile. The whole Casablanca thing and the orange grove scene basically gutted me emotionally and left me aching and raw and bare. I understand why Coate left, but I don’t know how to watch a show that doesn’t have Tony and Ziva in it. She tells him she loves him and then they kiss and then he gets on the plane by himself and my world is in ruins. And then she gave him back the pendant! UGH. Just kill me now. Thanks.

New Girl-

WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL SCHMIDT!?!!?! UGH. CeCe’s face and those tears. I really want CeCe and Schmidt to be together, but I am actually glad he’s alone right now. What a dick move on his part.  It’s nice to see Nick and Jess being couply. Winston’s cat Furguson is hilarious as well. Winston is slowly losing it and is having conversations with his cat. Poor Winston.

How I Met Your Mother-

I am actually loving the continuity and Lily’s never ending drinks. Marshall and Daphne continues to bore me to death. I just want more Ted and the mother. I simply do not care about Ted’s longing for Robin.

Ted has a nickname for the Empire State Building, “Empy” and he knows what the proper term is for a person who gets sexually attracted to buildings.

Oh God. Ted wearing the old timey bathing suit is just hilarious. I love Lily’s revenge on Marshall too.  Of course Robin had to out their breaking the bottle of scotch to Ted.

Lily’s speech made me tear up. They are such good friends, all of them. I will miss this show for sure when it’s done.- P.S. I cannot wait to see how the drama goes down between Barney and Ted.

Grey’s Anatomy-

Christina and Alex is hilarious. I love their friendship.

Oh man. Callie is on a rampage.

Shane is by far my favorite intern. Seriously, I love Gaius Charles. Stephanie is the most annoying intern ever. I don’t give a crap about Alex/Jo or the other intern whose name I don’t even know.

Arizona dressing up to impress her wife and then bitching at Christina for not saying nice haircut makes me laugh.

Christina can’t keep her hands off Owen lol.

Jackson and April! April did her boards again. Jackson tells her she’ll pass and she makes a joke about them having sex before her boards last time.

My god, Callie is such a bitch. I don’t blame her, but damnnnnn.

Of course Meredith cannot stay off the case even when she’s on leave.  LOl at Meredith and Derek falling asleep because they are so tired taking care of their kids plus Callie and Sofia.

So Meredith is literally the person everyone calls.

I feel so bad for Richard and Shane. Why does he always get the crappy cases? Lol.

Again don’t care about Jo and Alex.

Okay, now Callie is pushing it by forcing her own relationship issues on Murphy and the wife’s husband and brother. Shake my head, Callie.

Shane is gonna lose his job, lol. I LOVE SHANE. JUST LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

I know a lot of people can’t stand Hunt, but I really enjoy him being the chief. Plus Jackson got his surgery back. YAY!

Jackson and April are so awkward lololol. I’m so glad that she passed though.

Callie came around thankfully. You can’t do that to a grieving husband. Some things are better in the grave.

I don’t know why I love Shane so much, but can we get him a love interest please? He’s quickly becoming a favorite.

Love Jackson and Owen teaming up on the rest of the board members.

Okay, maybe I do like Jo and Alex a little bit. It seems a lot like Alex/Izzie repeat though and that makes me sad, because I miss Izzie.

Crowen dating other people is the final nail in the coffin.

WOW. Callie and Arizona are breaking my heart.

Richard wanted to die!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!! WOW.  HOLY FLIPPING HELL. That was just harsh.

Modern Family

Phil is never not funny. Seriously. He is so funny.

I love that Gloria’s family stories are always so weird and hilarious and apparently involve large birds carrying family memebers away.

Cameron following Mitchell around calling him “My intended” and acting all creepy and “Murdery” makes me laugh. I love the wedding planning banter.

My gosh, Cameron’s reaction to the chat Larry dying makes my heart hurt. I also grew up on a farm and I always get teary when a kitten or cat dies. 😦

The evil baby storyline makes me lol.  And Manny continually making Sound of Music jokes makes me happy.

Okay, Larry’s storyline is definitely my favorite storyline. Cameron trying to explain death to Lily was just precious.

Cameron literally had a funeral for Larry’s wife, but Dylan, the moron, hit a water main and then BOOM water everywhere. What’s not to love about this hilarious storyline?

Jay made a Sound of Music joke! And then Manny beat up an obnoxious asshole on a phone during The Sound of Music.

The ending with Claire and Phil was just awesome.

I still haven’t caught up on Blue Bloods yet, but I will tomorrow after work.

Week of 9/27/2013

This is going to be a mix of shows.

First of all, Grey’s Anatomy. I love Grey’s, but I am really over Shonda Rhimes The writing on this show is sloppy and is bordering on lazy. I am really tired of her stringing couples along only to go nowhere with them or show character growth, only to have the character devolve back into being horrible. If there is one thing she is awesome at is ruining characters. She did it to Burke, Christina, Owen, George, Izzie, and now April. She’s been close at times to destroying Meredith too. I love the show, but I think I’m done watching for awhile. I just get too frustrated with how the characters are being written.

Secondly, let’s talk New Girl. What is going on with Jess and Nick? So they’re together but Schmidt is trying to break them up every episode? That’s going to get real old, real quick. Also, I love Schmidt with CeCe, but I seriously do not give a rat’s ass about this triangle with Elizabeth. Just a pick a team, Schmidt. And I for one am ecstatic that Coach is coming back. You can never have too many funny guys on a hilarious show.

Third, How I Met Your Mother. We FINALLY meet the mother. I was at the point last season that I didn’t care anymore. I was invested for Barney and Robin’s relationship, but Ted was just so damn annoying. I’m excited to see this final season play out.

Fourth, Modern Family. How freaking cute was that episode? I loved how they addressed it with the proposal. It was totally perfect. I love grown up Luke and Phil playing the foil for his daughters perfectly. I am excited for the rest of this season.

Lastly, now that I’ve found out that Kurt accepted Blaine’s proposal on Glee, I am forever done with the show. I will not get into full detail here, but I literally hate Blaine. He is my least favorite character on a show and I will not support a show that allows a fabulous character to accept the proposal of a borderline emotionally abusive asshole.

I still need to catch up on NCIS, NCIS: LA, The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, and Blue Bloods. But there is my general recap on some of my shows. I’ll be doing episode 1.2 of One Tree Hill probably tomorrow.
