Consumables #96, Fall TV Lightning Round

Started watching fall tv last week. I could write a thesis on each thing I watched, but instead, I shall share quickest of quick thoughts about as many as I can think of. Go!

The Good Wife

No one can make me want to wear pencil skirt suits like Alicia Florrick. Is it dysfunctional that after watching the season premiere all I did with my spare time all week long is worry about Cary? After what those writers put us all through last season, DO NOT HURT CARY. I mean, Yeezus, Mary, and Yosef, people.

Dancing with the Stars

They had Smokey Robinson and Aloe Blacc on there and they were both so chill I think my heart rate went into bradycardia.

Castle

I don’t watch this, but I think I might like it if I did. Does that automatically kick me up into old lady status?

The Mindy Project

Let’s just have the whole show be Danny doing dance numbers. Who’s with me?

The Mysteries of Laura

The first episode of this had the effect of four sleeping pills on both Fixy and me. I mean, it lulled us both into immediate blankie time. New parents, when your kid won’t go to sleep, have them watch the first ep of Grace being a cop.

Black-ish

AIN’T NO WAY LARRY FISHBURNE IS OLD ENOUGH TO BE THAT DUDE’S DAD. Come on, Morpheus.

Nashville

Juliette Barnes giving herself a hysterical sobbing hair trim was the perfect illustration of why people watch that show. MY HEART IS BREAKING SO I SHALL GIVE MYSELF A GENTLE TWO INCHES OFF THE BOTTOM RESULTING IN A REJUVENATION OF HAIR BODY WAAAAHHHHHH MY HEART

How To Get Away With Murder

Glad to see that there weren’t nearly as many speeches in this one, because my least favorite thing about Shondaland is the speechifying. And look at Dean Thomas from Harry Potter! I mean, Rowr, right? Is that wrong? He was just a kid in Harry Potter! But that was then. And now? Hello guvnah.

Parenthood

Let’s try and get through just one single episode where Christina does not get weepy this season ok? That lady is the most misty eyed actor since Pa Ingalls. Someone sneezes wrong and she wells up. Also, it seems like I spend my whole life watching Lauren Graham on tv being in a relationship with the wrong dude. WHY CAN’T SHE EVER HAVE THE RIGHT DUDE? Luke Danes was the only one who was ever worthy of her.

Transparent

Oh, the feelings I am having watching this one. So good. I thought I would binge watch it but I have been doling it out slowly because I can’t take more than one per sitting.

Outlander

I DO NOT HAVE STARZ AND I WANT TO WATCH THIS SHOW. Humph.

Happy watching, all!
