TV is not my thing. I don’t have the patience or inclination for it. I fidget when I watch it. If I don’t, it means I’ve fallen asleep. I am a chronic abandoner of shows (sorry, The Walking Dead and Poldark). Naturally I know all sorts of pop culture references. I am on top of it.
However, this doesn’t mean I never watch TV. It just means I have high standards, or so I like to tell myself. And when I do fall for a show, I’m quite devoted. Here’s what has worked for me…(and what I’m looking forward to).
The 100. A fantastic example of the adaptation being FAR superior to the book. Also, the future looks super female. I like it.
Gilmore Girls. I am SO excited for November.
The X-Files. Quite honestly, if you haven’t watched this, you need to take a long look in the mirror.
Stranger Things. I can’t say anything that hasn’t already been said.
Twin Peaks. And old favorite, and apparently it’s also going to be revived…?
Bloodline. A quiet, but enthralling show.
The Americans. Quite the possibly the best thing since Felicity. Which brings me to…
Felicity. Noel or Ben? (Always Ben.)
Justified. Great writing. Great acting. Based on excellent source material (the fabulous Elmore Leonard.)
Deadwood. Brilliant writing, bloody, practically Shakespearean dialogue, and cancelled far too soon.
What do you watch? Past, present, and future…
