Since I saw Love, Lauren Ellen’s blog post (right here) about what she’d watched in August I’ve wanted to do a post like that. September has been a crazy month for me, but I managed to get a good amount of viewing in.
Grey’s Anatomy: I have watched 3 seasons of this show so far and I still don’t know how I feel about it. In fact I’m not sure I want to keep watching it. Some episodes I find really interesting. Sometimes it is great, but more times than not, it’s dumb. I’m sorry to those of you who love this show. I just don’t like watching soap romances. Maybe it gets better, maybe I should just give it up.
Gilmore Girls: I’ve been watching this show for months. I have been told for years to try it. Finally I did and I loved it. My mom happened to be around when I was trying it and she was immediately attached. We watch it together now about once a week (why it’s taking me so long to get through). I’m always curious on what is going to happen next and I really think the mom-daughter relationship between Rory and Lorelei is sweet.
Call the Midwife: I’m almost done with this show on Netflix and I still love it. It’s actually surprising that I love this show. This show does a great job at showing you life in the late 50’s to early 60’s in the East Side of London. It faces injustices and controversial issues. It is often very sad and the injustices in the world hurt to watch. I feel that it is a good reminder on how far we’ve come but just how far we have to go before we are even close to what it needs to be. I truly love this show and plan to continue watching it till they end it.
Blue Bloods: I watch this with my family. It’s one of the only police procedural shows I’ll watch. I really love this show and the characters are actually interesting (not ultra common for a police show). Sometimes some of the tactics bother me since we in are in such a volatile time between the public and police. Of course the show touches upon it, and sometimes handles it really well. But nevertheless I really enjoy the show.
Blacklist: I’ve been enjoying this show since it first came out a few years ago. I was ecstatic when I saw that Netflix finally put season 4 up. The end of season 3 was chaotic and insane. I had no idea where they were going to take this season. I’ve only seen the first couple. That being said I’m still a little lost and definitely have no idea what is going to happen. It’s been stressing me out a little. Reddington seems much more angry this season. I think this season is going to be really good.
Kong: Skull Island: I wanted to see this movie in theaters because ‘hey, monsters! and Tom Hiddleston!’ but I never actually got around to seeing it. So I was excited to finally watch the movie. When it first started I wasn’t entirely sure if I was going to like it. But as the story went along I started to really enjoy it. It was a bit like Jurassic Park only more of a scifi feel. Like I said Tom Hiddleston was in it so that was fantastic. He did great, by the way. The story was compelling and it did not turn out how I thought it would.
The Decoy Bride: I adore this movie so much. I’ve watched it a dozen times or more. Of all the chick flicks ever made this one is one of my favorites. The story is different from most romantic comedies. I didn’t feel like my brain was being hurt. David Tennant is pretty nice to have in it too. Yes, the movie is silly. It’s an independent film so there wasn’t big bucks thrown into it. But it was fun. It was cute. Hell, my dad even likes it.
GAGA: Five Foot Two: I’ve been wanting to watch this documentary since I first heard about it and it didn’t disappoint. It was amazing to watch and see that it’s not all glamorous. I have been really liking Lady Gaga more and more over the years and this solidified my love for her. She is so tough and vulnerable. Fame and fortune don’t take our insecurities away and that is always a good reminder. Money doesn’t fix problems. I’d definitely recommend watching it.
These are what I enjoyed this month. Hope you liked my list. What have you been watching? I’d love to know in the comments.
