I didn’t watch much television when my sister lived here, because she lived in our TV room and I’m not a very nice person but I’m nicer than that.
Since she left and we moved the TV down into the main living space, I’ve been making up for lost time. I mean, as much as I can in the evenings after the children go to bed and before I fall asleep. Some nights there’s only a five minute window. Also sometimes I like to just talk to Will. Or have work to do, or don’t feel like watching anything. But anyway.
We discovered that How I Met Your Mother is finally streaming, and started over again from the beginning. A few years ago we watched the first four seasons (borrowing the DVDs from Cassie) and LOVED the show. We are just as fond of it the second go-round, and Sam adores it too. (Just wait till he finds out that Marshall made a movie with the Muppets!)
Will has been watching some hour-longs, like Shameless (Brit version) and Sons of Anarchy and a bunch of other stuff I think sounds neat but just am not up for right now.
This week, I get to watch anything I want. I watched the pilot of Greek the other day and enjoyed it (which is nice since I know the creator/showrunner – and yes, I am only just now watching my friend’s show from like 5 years ago). I will most likely keep going but I want other options as well. Of course, what I really want to watch is season 7 of Gilmore Girls (I’ve never seen it! And am unspoiled! Can you believe it?) but it isn’t available for free anywhere.
Any suggestions for me? I’d say I’m about 8 years behind overall. Please don’t suggest Veronica Mars, Glee, or True Blood. I couldn’t get into the former and HATED the latter two.
