As you may know, I’ve been crocheting an entire wardrobe of doll clothes and a rather large blanket, and with that comes televisual viewing. This is what has been keeping me company (and up past my bedtime) for the last couple of weeks – all of it Fully Veggie Mama Approved.
Yeah ok so feeeelings, you’ll feel them. I thought “oh how nice an English murder mystery I like these” and thought little of the fact it may be “let’s explore the emotional impact this incident would have on a small town” and yes well take tissues.
It’s brilliant, it really is. They keep the identity of the killer very secret and convoluted (and boy does everyone have some skeletons in the closet) and while I wasn’t totally surprised when it was revealed, it was done super, super well. I did have one dumb suspicion which turned out to be true but honestly I was so caught up in the drama of the thing I didn’t really ruminate on it. And season two was fantastic even though I wasn’t sure how they were going to portray it.
Also: THE MUSIC. so, so good. By this Icelandic dude.
Look now’s not the time to tell me you hate it. That’s fine, just shuffle on along. I’m here for the fans, the people who are ticking days off their calendar to November 25, and if they’re anything like me, considering how to do this. Do I have a party? Do I watch all in a marathon? Do we have a tandem watch virtual party across Australia? SHOULD I ORDER SNACKS?
Until then, I’m at Season 4 episode 10 we’re all at Yale now, and I have 70+ 45-minute episodes to fit in between now and the end of November.
Meanwhile go here and add this to your list.
Never going to turn up a bit of Jane Austen, and this incarnation is a good one. Jonny Lee Miller is adorable and it’s a reasonable way to pass the time. Fanny price is kickass, and also: books forever <3
I’m not sure what is happening, but Kevin Smith films are popping up on Netflix (is there going to be more? Will Mallrats 2 the TV series be a Netflix thing? SO MANY QUESTIONS) but for now I’ll just be grateful and watch what’s there. So much easier than taking everything out of a DVD case and getting off the couch.
Now Clerks is not everyone’s favourite, I get that, but it IS mine. I think you have to have been there. Anyway if Clerks isn’t your bag (it might be! Try it!) there’s always Chasing Amy and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (Dawson forever <3) and that one time I got to talk to Jason Mewes.
The movie that brought my husband and I together – still one of the best. I’m excited they’re making a sequel, and I even chipped in to their kickstarter (and paid Farva $20 to call my husband a chicken fucker. IT WAS GLORIOUS) to get it over the line. I could watch this every day and never get bored. Oh wait that was 2004.
There was also a period of time where I had a Car Ramrod sticker on my windscreen and oh the memories. Also one of the kids the other day didn’t want cream on their pancakes and oh the joy of using “ok no cream!” legitimately in context in real life was truly a beautiful thing.
Sing it again, rookie biatch!
Lizzie slightly flips out when Diana dies, and Charles has never articulated a word I’ve ever fully understood. Thumbs up from me. I also want to kick Cherie Blair in the shins but also that’s a normal reaction, I’m guessing. Helen Mirren at Balmoral is my favourite. Dogs! Horses! Tartan! Afternoon Tea!
Also are you excited for The Crown? I am. Added to my list, carn November 4.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
GIRLS DOING COOL SHIT MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU OK WE’LL TAKE IT FROM HERE THANKS.
For when you don’t know what to watch, you pop on one of these as you go about your business. 20 minutes, a couple of laughs, and you’re done. Again, I’ve never gotten sick of it and I never will. If you have, however, go for Extras (recommend Daniel Radcliffe and the Kate Winslet episodes) or Life’s Too Short for the same pleasant viewing. Drink a cup of concrete before you go near Derek, it’s AMMMMAAAAAZING but also feely-feel sob cry while you’re folding the washing.
Need I say if you haven’t watched it, pop it to the top of your list? You’ve watched it, yeah? Please tell me you’ve watched it.
Insane Irish priests get into strife and much of that dry humour abounds. Very satisfactory watching, many LOLs.
Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey
Everybody’s favourite astrophysicist/meme takes time off from his popular podcast to re-do everyone’s favourite astronomer cosomologist astrobiologist astrophysicist and science everyman Carl Sagan’s ode to life, the universe, and everything in it. Graphically, it’s pleasanter viewing, and honestly who doesn’t love NDT?
Ok, back to the Gilmore Girls or I’ll never be done in time. What are you watching?
