I haven't been talking about what TVs I've been watching lately, but I seem to have been watching a lot.
I am actually really behind on Legend of Korra
, because I keep feeling like I need to pay attention to it more and thus can't just have it on when I work or I'll miss what's going on. But then that means I don't watch it at all. >_< So I think, including today's episode, I have like four eps to watch. Maybe I will marathon them all on my next day off. I have been really enjoying what I've seen of it so far, though, and am pretty spoiled for the eps I haven't seen, because I don't like how Tumblr Savior works, so I don't even bother trying to avoid spoilers.
Of the shows I was following on a week-to-week basis, I think there was just Happy Endings
, and Parks and Rec
. The season finale of Happy Endings finally aired somewhere and so it's now available to download, but I haven't watched it yet. I wasn't thrilled with the season finale of Parks & Rec, though. I'm really glad the campaign arc is over, because I was getting so tired of that. I really wish the Ann/Tom relationship would be over, but maybe next season will start off with them breaking up.
As for Community, I really enjoyed the three episodes we had this week. Who would have thought Jeff would look so good shirtless and with eyeliner? I don't usually find him attractive at all, but damn. Also I guess Leonard is gay? I feel like this is a "see, you can't criticise us for not having any queer characters because look, we had a blip and you miss it moment that made a very minor character gay!" kind of thing. Which I suppose is better than being all "oh yeah, so-and-so was totally gay but it was just never important to mention it in the show because we're so above sexuality being a thing". Bluh. Go, Leonard, with your hot young boyfriend, though. XD
Anyway, I don't really have any thoughts about Dan Harmon leaving next season. I'm not the type to pay attention to who is behind the scenes on stuff, so as long as the episodes are funny, I don't care. Which means, we'll see!
Um, let's see. Oh, I was watching Scrubs
for a while, but I think I watched about halfway through season one and then just got tired of it. I really like Turk and Carla (both individually and together), and I like JD okay, and Elliot grew on me. But the JD/Elliot relationship just ugh. I did not want to watch any more of them. -_-
So instead I've been trying other things! I decided to start watching season two of Psych
, because I'd enjoyed season one okay, but found myself kind of burnt out by their antics by the end of the season, so never did watch any more, even though I had downloaded three or four seasons. I've watched about half of season two and am enjoying it quite a bit, so maybe this time I will go directly on to the next season! It's just the sort of mindless TV I need when I'm working. I would like to watch more serious shows and movies (I have a lot on my hard drive!), but it's like what I said about Korra, I need to be able to pay attention and if I'm working, I'll miss important stuff that's going on, and yet I don't like just sitting and watching something.
I saw some funny gifs of a cartoon on Tumblr, but it wasn't until the tenth time or so that one came across my dash that it was tagged with the title so I could look it up! It turned out to be Bob's Burgers
, which is super awesome and my new favorite thing. It's about this guy and his wife who own a burger shop, but really the stars of the show are their three kids, Tina, Gene, and Louise. I love all of them, but I think Louise is my favorite. I have zoomed through season one and just watched the first episode of season two tonight.
Speaking of cartoons, I totally forgot about Adventure Time
for a while, but have just downloaded a handful of new eps since the last time I remembered about it. (So much easier to watch shows when they're already over! This whole following week-to-week thing is tough, especially when there's no one on my flist talking about it to remind me to go download, which is the main way I remember my other shows.)
I also started watching a ridiculous anime called Shirokuma Cafe
(Polar Bear Cafe), about a panda (named Panda), who hangs out a lot at a local cafe owned by a polar bear. But it's not just a world of talking animals. There are also humans, and no one remarks on the fact that animals can talk or own cafes or whatever. Panda gets a part-time job working at a zoo. As a panda. There's a fulltime panda, too, but Panda-kun just goes a few days a week. XD
Oh! And I watched the first episode of Suburgatory
, which seems to be a show about Snowflake-chan/Othergirls-san
. Not sure if I'm going to keep watching it or not, because I didn't really like the main character at all, but I might give it a few more episodes.
I also downloaded, but haven't watched yet, Party Down
, because cesare
and I were talking about Adam Scott (Ben on Parks & Rec) and she recommended it.
Any other ideas for stuff I should watch? Doesn't have to be new (in fact, I prefer shows that are finished and can just be downloaded in one chunk rather than watching as they air). I do have a preference right now for sitcoms and cartoons, due to the not being able to concentrate on more serious stuff, but I'll take suggestions for anything.
