On the Big Screen
TV Series:Suits: I had some catching up to do, and I did. I was not impressed by the first half of this season. I think it’s the weakest the series has ever been. But I did have tears in my eyes at the last episode. So I’m reluctantly going to keep watching when the show comes back.
Shadowhunters: I finished season 1. Surprise, surprise, it’s still completely terrible. But I like making fun of it so.
South Park: I just have to take a minute to praise how amazing this season is so far. It’s just spot on. So many laughs. I’m actually really excited to see where it’ll go next.
The Shannara Chronicles: Since I’m in a total fantasy mood, I figured I needed to watch this series. I’m not that far into it yet, but I will keep watching because elves and pretty people basically. It’s not the most inventive or brilliant fantasy series, but it is catnip for me. It’s evoking my feels for Legend of the Seeker.
Through My Speakers
In Real LifeSeptember wasn’t particularly great, mostly because of work drama that I don’t want to get into and Twitter drama that boggles my mind. I dropped most of everything and just dove into my books. But other than that…
- A spectacular wedding!
- A barbecue with the whole company!
- Game night with the biffle, his brother, and his brother’s gf!
- Book club!
