2013 in TV

2013 will always be the year of the TV show graveyard for me. Is it strange that I’m proud of the amount of TV I dropped in the last year? It felt ridiculously good to let go of so much.

I said farewell to Revenge, True Blood and The New Girl. Started and stopped the UK version of The Bridge – The Tunnel. Gave The Crazy Ones a decent shot, but that got old real quick. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D was just woefully bad and boring and poor. The Blacklist went a little bit too Alias on me a little too quickly.

Brr... it's a little bit cold!

It’s been a while since I’ve written one of these. Though, I feel I cover my back by saying ‘maybe‘ in the title of these ‘regular‘ posts.

For the past month, or so, I’ve been enjoying working from home, complete with dressing like a total bum. Going to miss that this week. While working at home definitely has its perks, I don’t know how people do it full-time, all the time. It’s tough! Especially living on your own. And oh so easy to fall into bad habits. Going to resent having to get up an hour earlier and pay for my transport to and from work this week. And having to wrap up to face the cold.

The complaining is a little unwarranted. I only have to take 2 weeks until I’m off to Bahrain! Very nearly time. Nearly.

Falling out with TV

TV

Hi, my name’s Jaina and I am a former TV addict.

Is it because I’m getting old and getting curmudgeonly about TV in general, that I’ve fallen out with it? Or whether over the years of watching all sorts of crap on TV, I’m finally figuring out what I actually enjoy watching. Or if the quality of TV shows currently is just pure crap. OR if after the end of Breaking Bad, no other TV shows will compare.

Whatever it is these days I’d rather come home and watch a decent film in the evening and be done. A couple of hours of watching just one thing. That’s fine by me. It also allows me to fit in some quality brain-not-required TV.

What am I currently watching? (Shows that are currently on air) Let’s see:

The new crop of 2013’s TV

Previously I mentioned in passing my reluctance to get into any new TV series. Strangely, right now, the thought of perhaps something I get sucked into lasting years is enough to put me off watching anything new. Or maybe I’m still mourning Breaking Bad and fear that nothing will ever reach those heights.

Maybe that’s a fear worth having. Because honestly, the new TV pilots I did catch – what utter crap. That’s just my point of view, but it’s a point of view I’m standing by. American network TV has taken a serious nose dive. Right? Let’s take a look see at the ones I took a look at:

Rain... rain...

The rains… they’re here.

The weather has finally turned here in England. Blissfully enjoying a warm autumn, with days reaching 20 degrees C. And then a week later we’re we’re on the cusp of winter with the temperature dropping 10 degrees and rain. So much rain. Yes, I feel it more these days as I don’t have the luxury of driving to work. *sigh*

Despite the weather, what else is new?
