Parks & Rec
I have to say, I'm liking the way Ben and Leslie are split up geographically this season. I found them cute at first, but it started to get old after a while, and this way they're more interacting with other people than just each other. I'm especially enjoying Team Ben and April as they are hilarious together. I also really liked last week's episode with Tom's internet addiction. XD

New Girl
I am now caught up with ALL the episodes and really enjoying it (though I miss having a ton of eps to just watch all in a row). I am utterly baffled, however, that the writers seem to be under the impression that if you are laid off from a teaching job, you can never ever be a teacher again. It's like they think you only get one chance and then you have to choose another job. If they wanted Jess to get a different job, surely there would be a better way to write it rather than this, which makes me want to yell at the screen every time she mopes about how she can no longer teach and they have Moments when they try to cheer her up.

Another thing I don't like is how Cece seems to disappear from the scene if she's not dating Schmidt. I was originally disappointed at how little BFF interaction there was between her and Jess, but then once she got serious with Schmidt, she was on a lot and I was like yay, Cece! (Even though I was still disappointed that there was not much focus on her and Jess, just her and Schmidt.) And now that they broke up, we barely see her anymore. :(

(And then when we do get an episode that is about Cece and Jess, it's all about them fighting, plus it has the models, which just...ugh. Nadia is like a female Borat, just a jumble of bad Russian stereotypes, and all the other models are always airheads. :-/)

Adventure Time
Oh man, right in the feels! The only "spoiler" I saw for I Remember You was some gifs of Ice King saying he wanted to form a band with Marceline, which just sounded like the usual Adventure Time hilarity, so I was utterly unprepared. I hope they explore that backstory some more. (I haven't watched the season finale yet, but from the title it doesn't seem like it will focus on Ice King and/or Marceline.)

The Mindy Project
Not sure how much longer I am going to try to stick with this. -_- It seems to get worse and worse with each episode. Does she really need to have "teehee I'm racist" be part of her characterisation? And I was right about the new nurse being a bad clone of Andy from Parks & Rec. The whole bathroom attendant thing was even something Andy did!


I still haven't watched Elementary yet, but I feel like I have due to all the meta I read. XD I just have this weird block about ~serious~ shows. It's been ages since I watched anything but sitcoms and cartoons and for some reason I am having major avoidance when it comes to anything else. :-/
