A few TV shows we've been watching are winding down. This gives us room to start watching some new to us shows as well as catch up on a few we are a few seasons behind the current episodes.
How I Met Your Mother
We hadn't even watched this show until a couple of years ago so we watched all 9 seasons over a fairly short time frame. The season finale this week certainly generated some strong reactions. I have mixed feelings. Ending it with a twist wasn't quite on the level of the Pam’s Dream season of Dallas but it did fall a little flat for me. The show had it’s ups and downs over the years but it was mostly fun.
This show has been fun and I’m going to miss it. We’re down to the final three episodes on our DVR.
I have been a fan of Timothy Olyphant since Deadwood and Justified has been just an excellent show. It’s true to the spirit of Elmore Leonard and the stories that inspired it. The fifth season is nearly done and next season will be the last. If you haven’t watched this show I highly recommend you find season one and start from the beginning.
The catching up
This is a show we have always been a few years behind in watching. We started by getting the DVD box sets and now we’re watching on Netflix. We've just started season five and the first part of the split season 7 is about to start. I plan to record the new shows while we work on catching up via Netflix. As we did with How I Met Your Mother our plan is to catch up and watch the final episodes when they first air.
We were able to record the rebroadcast of the first season of this show in the weeks before the current season started at the end of February. I’m so glad we did it’s excellent. I’m kind of loving Keri Russel as a total badass. What’s interesting about this show is that I find myself rooting for the Russian spies as often as I find myself rooting for the Americans.
This is a show we never watched but heard from a lot of people that it was funny. I think we never started watching it because it began when we were just watching too many shows and couldn't fit any others into our available TV viewing time. We got the first season from the library and started watching this week. Maybe it’s because I’m married to a scientist but this show is a crackup.
The next on the Netflix Queue
I really want to watch this one but I think we might watch the earlier British version first.
Another one we just haven’t had time for but want to start watching
So what are you watching these days?
Hope you’re having a great weekend!!
