As I said on the What Are You Reading thread, I think I'm going to make these threads non-month-specific for a while and see how that goes.

I'm watching Downton Abbey, and though this series has been a bit of a downer, I'm dreading the end of it.

I've also been watching Glee, which is also going through a not-great season, so all in all, perhaps I should just give up on TV for a while.

#2 -- LOL! I haven't kept up with Castle; I've watched the seasons that are available on DVD, but I haven't managed to get to the more recent episodes.

#3 -- I have good intentions to watch Doctor Who, but last time I checked a series out of the library (planning on starting with the Eleventh Doctor, as someone told me that was a good entry to the show), the first disc was missing from the case. I've requested a different copy, but since everyone is watching Doctor Who (apparently), it takes a while for it to come in.

#5: Is there any way to see them online, on the website? Or do they hold out until they have it out on DVD? I don't know if I've ever watched all of the earlier episodes. We came in on the season after Beckett got shot. I've watched some of the repeats on TNT (I think) but I don't know if I caught them all in order.

Second season of Dr. Who on Netflix. Some I've seen; I'm pretty sure season 2 was as far as I ever got before...life and children and work and reading and other tv shows, etc. all kept me from watching them before.

Netflix has allowed me to watch a lot of shows I never got to before...I pretty much watched zero tv from 1988 to 1999. I had children who had scouts, flute practice, dance classes, homework, etc. and just neverhad the time to watch. From 1997-1999 I went back to college and really watched no tv. Now, there's empty nest and lots of time. So far, I've watched the entire X-Files, Firefly, Farscape, The Young Riders, Ken Burns Civil War, Stargate and SG Atlantis, and a variety of PBS and History Channel documentaries.

I've been...um...watching...errr...ahem...a novella. (Spanish soap opera)

In my defense, it has really funny points. It reminds me of Tootsie if Dustin Hoffman's character had worked with greedy corporate types, was framed for embezzlement, chased by police, appeared to die in an accident and then used his feminine alter ego to clear his name. And I only know what's happening half the time, so maybe my Spanish will improve. *blushing*

LOL! We actually figured out embarazada from the acting. :o)
Who's the gardener and the housemaid? I must have missed that. We kind of dropped in at episode 150 something, so I'm pretty sure that's where my confusion comes from. I also looked up a word that confused me that ended up being "stepmother."

Gosh, Ron, I hope you don't think any less of me for watching this. The first time I saw the beginning sequence (before I had some idea of the plot) I thought there was a flying car in it. You can understand how that would have held my attention.

I'm finally watching Downton Abbey Season 3. Now I wish I'd watched it when it aired, even though at the time I had justifiable reason to wait. Nevertheless, I'm enjoying it greatly, even if this season seems on the whole more downcast.

I have a working tv! Finally, after so many years! . . . I don't know what to watch. ;)

It looks like a lot of people are watching Downton Abbey. I've only seen seasons one and two, but am looking forward to watching season three.

It's pretty crazy feeling trying to adjust to watching shows when they air versus on my iPod when I feel like it. I honestly rarely use the tv unless it's quiet, when I might see what movies are playing. I have, however, watched The Amazing Race on it. Meghan is the cousin of an old friend.

I still have the final two episodes of Downton Abbey Season 3 to watch. I went through a little flurry of watching, then fell off again. Mostly, we've been watching baseball, Star Trek reruns, or How I Met Your Mother (new to us).

I have a question for people who are watching Game of Thrones and also read the books: Is Catelyn significantly less annoying on the show? The internet has me believing she might be but I watched the first season and I didn't like her. That may have been projecting from the books though...

I have been watching series one of the UK "Being Human" and I really liked it. Has anyone seen it or the US version?

I also have a lot of library work to do at school, so I have been playing The Matt Smith "Doctor Who" episodes in the background. (I definitely couldn't do that with Being Human!) He is brilliant and I can't imagine how they will find someone to replace him. I try to remind myself I felt the same way about David Tennant.

Compski: I've seen the US version of Being Human. I like the ghost and the werewolf characters, but I really didn't care for the vampires. Too much blood and gore for my taste. The stories are pretty good though. Think of it like a supernatural Friends.

I watched the first season of the UK version when it originally aired on BBC America but found myself pretty confused by the ending and gave up on it.

57jugglingpaynes

#55: Yeah, the US version can get R-rated as well, usually with the vampire storylines. I tend to work on the computer or leave the room at any scene that looks like it's getting too intense. The main attraction for me is the relationship between the three main characters.

Yes! I am only a little ways into season 2 and sick of the vampire stuff.

No posts since the new TV season started! In addition to my old favorites (Bones, New Girl, Mindy Project, Parks and Recreation) I'm watching the hilarious Brooklyn Nine Nine, Sleepy Hollow which is continuing to surprise me with its being interesting, The Trophy Wife, which I don't love as much as the critics do but I like the actors so I'm giving it a shot and of course Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because it's Joss Whedon and Marvel Comics and if any of you know anything about me, I'd hope that you'd know those are magical ingredients for bib happiness (though admittedly last night was the first episode I truly loved as a whole). Also, I spent a large chunk of the summer mainlining Supernatural from the beginning and so now I'm watching the new episodes of that.

Oh, and last night PBS had a special on the history and evolution of Superheroes, did anyone see it? I switched to it during a commercial once, but I'd already missed a big chunk. Looks like it's available on DVD though, so I think I'm going to be getting it and it's companion book.

#73: The fairy tale formula of the shows requires bad step, foster, and adoptive parents in order for the characters to rise above their situation. Much like Harry Potter needed the horrible situation in Aunt Petunia's house. Granted, it might be an overused plot device, but it also frees the character from the conflict of putting family or self in danger. You don't try to improve your situation if you are happy. :o)

Anyway, I think Regina was a good stepmother to Henry, it was just that Henry was hooked on the idea that his real mother would bring magic back to their world. In Sleepy Hollow, Abby seemed to have a stable foster home. It was her troubled sister that was bounced around until she landed in a last resort situation. I don't really know with SHIELD, as I didn't really watch all the first episodes.

Downton is a weird one for me, I have to be in a very specific mood for it, but when that mood hits I marathon it like nobody's business. This means I haven't actually seen the last couple of episodes of season 3 (though I know what happens). I am counting the hours to Sherlock though!

I would love to do a marathon, tv or walking. But alas, I don't have a long stretch of time coming up to prepare for/do either.

On the upside, we have introduced Rex to Star Wars!! We watched the original first one, now known as Episode IV: A New Hope, a few weeks ago for Friday night family pizza and move night. Rex LOVED it! He's since watched it four times, and since my husband was working late the past two Friday nights, that's been our movie. We are all super excited to move on to The Empire Strikes Back this week. :)

We decided that we are going to introduce them to Rex in the order in which they were released, not in numerical order by episode. I know there's some argument for watching IV, I, II, III, V, VI, but we want him to fully appreciate the awesomeness of the original trilogy before moving onto the newer films.

On a related note, we went to Star Wars night at the minor league team in my in-laws' city last night to celebrate May the 4th Be With You. We all wore Star Wars shirts, had a family photo op with R2-D2, watched Darth Vader throw out the first pitch using the Force to guide the ball into the catcher's mitt, saw lots of characters (but not up close, as Rex is still scared to get near costumed characters), and came home with a nifty blue light saber. In fact, when I was getting dressed this morning, I heard my husband and son having a light saber duel!

LOL. Good read. Luckily I don't get bullied about it, and honestly I think it's nice that there is a TV show people can share. I do understand the falling asleep thing, but that seems to happen with most shows lately. I must be working too hard.

Anyway, my husband asked me to watch the next episode with him today. It was way better than the second episode. Compski, if you decide to watch it, I suggest having a friend there who will warn you about any part that will make you uncomfortable.
