Retrospective is a monthly post to rewind all of the happenings, thoughts, and discussions here at thoughts and afterthoughts.
A Rewind Of:
Oct // 2015
Memes (Top Ten Tuesday):
Oh my god the comment replies on these are so backlogged. I am so, so sorry :(!
Television (Not a full list of what I watch):
(If you love to talk television, hit me up on Twitter and we can share feels together!)
Arrow S4: This show continues to truck along, as it does.
Awkward S5: This show is almost over. It is bittersweet.
Blindspot S1: I’m…4 weeks behind. Ugh.
Code Black S1: This show makes me squirmy with the “blood”.
Criminal Minds S11: Criminal Minds being Criminal minds.
Faking It S2: Not speaking to its representation: good on MTV for expanding their social narratives.
Fresh Off The Boat S2: Watching this on/off at the moment.
Grandfathered S1: It is what it is.
How To Get Away With Murder S2: My head hurts. It hurts so much.
iZombie S2: This is probably my favourite CW Show in the lineup.
Limitless S1: Jake McDorman is such a stud that I feel like he’s dragged down by other casts. Still, it’s a police procedural that makes me laugh — and that’s an hour I’ll give.
Marvel’s Agent of SHIELD S3: WHAT THE FUCK FITZSIMMONS. NO, SERIOUSLY. DID YOU SEE THAT GEMMA-ONLY EPISODE? OH MY GOD.
Minority Report S1: This show is probably dropped. I haven’t had interest in really picking it back up after episode 2.
Quantico S1: This show grows on you, keeps the hype up with questions, and is another show that’s amazingly fun to theorize. I’ll forever appreciate non-linear storytelling.
Reign S3: Did anyone else notice how they crammed a half-seasons worth of content into the first episode? No wonder this show is likely getting canned — the writing is blerghusdasudhas.
Scream Queens S1: I lack care to continue watching this show.
The Blacklist S3: Spader’s killing it. Tom is killing it. Liz is there.
The Flash S2: I’ve only watched the first episode of this season but I was so teary in one scene. Holy shit.
The Mindy Project S4: I am sadly two episodes behind but what’s not to love about it–it’s Mindy Kaling.
The Vampire Diaries S7: I didn’t know how this show will do without one of it’s leads…but it’s still hanging on, sort of.
Released Shows Still Requiring Consideration:
Blood & Oil, Heroes: Reborn, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Survivor (I’ve followed the Wikipedia though…)
Circles: It’s about 50 people in a room and they have to decide who lives/dies by a vote. — SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE FUN, RIGHT? No, it wasn’t.
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
Illenium – Only One (feat. Nina Sung): This is some chill melodic dubstep.
Justin Bieber – Sorry: Don’t look at me like that.
Pentatonix – Water: Dat Kirstie tho.
Pentatonix – New Years Day: OKAY BYE HALLOWEEN, TIME TO BLAST THIS FOR CHRISTMAS/NEW YEARS.
Nor’easters – What Now (opb. Rihanna): It’s dope. I’ll just leave this here…
So Oct was a pretty solid blogging/reading month with great company at events and stuff of the like.
The only thing that’s rather shitty on my end is that my commenting-back presence on other blogs has been pretty mediocre. Not gonna lie: it’s daunting to open WP and see that there are like 21973217321 new posts every day. And I’m just thinking “omgbyebacktotvbingeing”. Plus, I’ve got some posts I need to reply back to so don’t mind me if you see comments on threads 3+ weeks old LOL.
Lettuce hope things go back to normal.
