forty hours
So of course being gone for days means we're behind on all our shows, both regular TV and all the new anime D's picked out for us (and the stuff that's still running like SAO and Akame), plus the rewatch of Tamako Market. We're watching like five shows at a time racing to catch up. There are not enough hours in the day!

I'm caught up on Nashville and Revenge at least (though I hated last year's finale reveal, I've decided to just go with it--if it wants to be full on campy soap with people returning from the dead, fine), but haven't gotten to New Girl or The Mindy Project yet. The best thing New Girl did was break up Jess/Nick, so the first couple episodes this year seem much stronger, but now that Danny/Mindy is eating up TMP, it's really losing me. That pairing just does not work for me at all. They're too different, and sorry, Danny could do much better.

There are some new shows I've been wanting to check out that I haven't gotten to yet, like Selfie, even though I loathe the word "selfie" as much as I loathe the phrase "gender reveal party", but the ads have amused me every time.


And is Disney changing their morning schedule? I thought there was supposed to be a new Sofia this morning, but there's not. It's usually rerun on Saturday mornings, and it's showing listed for tomorrow, so... have they eliminated the Friday morning first-run? 7:30 is too early to expect me to get up on a Saturday!

Glad I am not the only one not sold on the Danny/Mindy pairing, though personally I think they could both do better, because yeah on his side, but who wants someone who constantly puts you down and is half ashamed of you?

Revenge doesn't even care anymore. They are just doing whatever, and I watch because the people are pretty.

Selfie, I want to like it, I theoretically should really like it, but it isn't quite working for me. I'm sticking it out for the cast, tbh.

That's true; they both could do better. I don't mean to imply Mindy the character isn't worthy, just that they're too different. I thought it was unprofessional and gross of her to be telling everyone at work about their sex life, then on the other hand, he wasn't even fricking divorced yet. Whatever, Danny. He really needs to sort his own shit out.

Revenge is one of those things that would have been awesome as a tightly plotted mini-series, but dragging it out means it has to become more ridiculous. But yes, pretty people and clothes.

Still haven't gotten to Selfie yet, but who doesn't love John Cho? Did you watch Go On? I was bummed to see that get cancelled.

Mindy is not really professional in a lot of ways...

GO ON WAS THE BEST! That was the saddest I was about something getting cancelled. It deserved more.

It was! It had a Community kind of vibe of weirdos forming a family with hijinks and heart, and given that NBC barely supported that show, I'm not surprised they didn't support this one, either.
