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: Still behind on this show
Big Brother Canada S4: I would have totally threw in my first impressions in this post but I still haven’t watched the premiere…
Criminal Minds S11: I thought that Reid episode killed me last month BUT THE ONE WITH MORGAN. *withers* *melts* *dead*
How To Get Away With Murder S2: I don’t even.
iZombie S2: Sometimes I wonder where/how Liv gets her cooking inspiration…
Limitless S1: Man Crush Monday (except today is Friday) is Jake McDorman lololol.
Legends of Tomorrow S1: I’ve only watched like…2 episodes? Is it worth it to continue? Not rhetorical–actually wondering.
Lucifer S1: Tom Ellis’ charisma keeps this show somewhat afloat. Otherwise, it’s kinda derpy considering it’s a supernatural crime television show (which is equally farfetched to Limitless).
Reign S3: I think CW decided to reschedule the remaining episodes.
Shadowhunters S1: Still funny. Still bad. Still watching. Don’tquestionit.
Suits S5: Someone hold me.
The Bachelor S20: Is it odd that I kinda want Amanda to be the next Bachelorette? (Will probably be Caila). Still thinking Lauren B is going to win but I’m okay with JoJo too (despite her family like whoa).
The 100 S3: Am I the only one that thinks the pacing is wacky? And may we meet again, [name redacted].
The Blacklist S3: Let’s be honest: baby LizTom is infinitely more important than Liz’s mother backstory.
The Flash S2: Still very much behind.
The Magicians S1: The charm is that this show doesn’t take itself too seriously. Eliot and Margo dynamics are squad goals. Penny’s arc is most interesting for now. Prof. Mayakovsky sprinkling gin on Quentin was genius.
The Vampire Diaries S7: I don’t even know what episode I left off at–level of care=0.
Top Chef S13: I was hella rooting for Carl to win but Marjorie or Issac is good too.
I could tell you all the movies I wanted to watch but didn’t get to see…
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
Dzeko & Torres – Home (feat. Alex Joseph): Gotta shout out home talent (Toronto) and the cover art that somehow gives me feels because it’s an aerial of the C.N. Tower.
Topic – Home (feat. Nico Santos): Speaking of Home, here’s another title that was pretty up there in Jan 2016 but didn’t make the cut for some random reason as I probably forgot about it.
The Nor’easters – Rise (Album): This is all you need.
Slow reading. Slower blogging. Oh god.
