Manhattan - the best TV show you're not watching

The best TV show you’re not watching: Manhattan

TV

Let me guess, you’re not watching Manhattan and you haven’t a clue as what it is. Well, I’m about drop some knowledge on you. So listen up. Manhattan is a TV series, set in the 1940s, chronicling one of the most important scientific races of the time – the race to build the world’s first atomic bomb. And it’s awesome.

Grey’s Anatomy, why do I still care?

Grey's Anatomy

Why in seven Hells am I still watching Grey’s Anatomy? Genuine question here.

There are so many TV shows I have dropped in the last couple of years without batting an eyelid. And Grey’s Anatomy is probably definitely the worst TV show I watch at the moment. It’s emotionally manipulative. Completely over dramatic. The story arcs are all completely done. And I’m pretty sure they’ve all been done before in the previous nine seasons. And I could not give two shits about any of the characters left in the show. (Could those new interns be any more bland and just plain annoying?)

2013 in TV

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.

A maybe weekly round-up (6)

Life

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.
