Taking a break from all my food posts for another one of my loves, television… Plopping my ass down to be a couch potato after a long day is my favourite activity. TV first, computer second. 🙂
Downton Abbey Season 3
Other TV series have been name-dropping Downton Abbey, which I see as a really great honour that trumps even an Emmy because these OTHER shows are telling THEIR viewers to watch YOU, because you’re THAT good. When I first started with Downton I thought it was a girl’s thing. Only girls are into costumes and opulence and historical dramas right? Then I realized men were watching it too. And then viewers across the pond in America loved it, too. There’s no sex, no nudity in this, it’s just a really good drama that I think everyone would really love. I cried a lot this season. And the ending was even more tragic. But Downton isn’t usually that depressing. The tumultuous plot makes for very good drama.
Suits Season 2
Um I’m so confused, why is it that Pearson Hardman is always at “war” and thinks everything is a “game”. The corporate battle is getting old and confusing especially when they keep introducing new characters. Can they please go back to solving good cases, with small romances at the side? Otherwise I might give this a miss next season. The quote I hate the most? “Our backs are against the wall”. If I hear it uttered one more time I’ll really stop watching.
The Carrie Diaries Season 1
If you didn’t know, this show is about a 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw before she made it big with Sex & The City. If I were 16 years old I would probably love this show.
Homeland Season 2
I have the season finale on my backburner I refuse to watch because this season was painful. This is supposed to be in the thriller genre right? Then why was I constantly bored. And I can’t watch another scene with Carrie and Brody in it. They’re the fakest couple ever with zero on screen chemistry.
90210 Season 5
It’s the final season, finally. I’ve been a loyal fan all along and it’s a great teen drama. It didn’t spiral downward like Gossip Girl did, it didn’t get all lame and incredulous. But yes it’s time to wrap things up. I would have loved for Naomi and Max to stay married though.
Whitney Season 2
Favourite! Way too underrated. They’re the most hilarious on screen couple and nobody realizes! Damn.
Girls Season 2
I don’t hate Lena Dunham, I hate the character Hannah, there’s a difference. Lena Dunham is brilliant for creating Hannah, because she is almost too spot on about the traits of today’s young adults. But the selfishness, irresponsibility, brattiness and general entitlement that Hannah thinks she deserves has become increasingly annoying because yes life is hard, but her attitude is so bad. She is actually luckier than the rest since she’s privileged, from an upper-middle class family. But wow I’ve never seen a more self-centered, narcissistic and childish person. I get so angry everytime I see Hannah. And the thing is I think a lot of us (me and my friends) are quite similar to Hannah because we are equally entitled and privileged, and it’s no secret that our generation is selfish and lazy. Seeing Hannah is like looking into a mirror sometimes which is why Lena Dunham is a hipster genius but also why I get really angry.
What I think Girls should do is zoom out from Hannah’s life and divide the spotlight equally among the four main girls. Because there’s always a free spirit, a pretty one, and a goody-two-shoes in our midst. It’ll be good to take a break from Hannah’s whining.
I can’t believe I wasted so much time watching shit shows. You know what, I’m going to stick to South Park from now on, it never lets me down.
