^^ Flo and Claire Underwood, circa 2014.
I don’t watch much TV, but when I do, I’m pretty committed to a routine. Here are a few things that I (and Kevin) have been watching recently and a few shows that I’m excited about.
On Mondays we watch Fashion Police. And then Better Call Saul. Kevin is a good sport and sits through Fashion Police with me. He laughs at the inappropriate comments and doesn’t hate the hour too much. FP is immediately followed by Better Call Saul, a spinoff from Breaking Bad (which we loved). So far, three episodes in, we’re enjoying it! It’s not as heavy as Breaking Bad, for which I’m grateful.
We catch the new Big Bang Theory each Thursday and watch reruns of the show whenever we can. Reruns of Friends and The Office are also a pretty regular occurrence.
I’m excited to welcome a second Kevin back into our lives soon – Kevin Spacey, that is. House of Cards is back in late February and I. can’t. wait. What political games can we expect in Season 3?
Mad Men – the end of an era, as the kids are saying – comes back for the second half of its seventh season on Easter. No one at AMC asked me, but I was and still am very opposed to the split they did for that final season. Breaking Bad could get away with that – Mad Men…not so much. It just didn’t have the momentum to keep me excited for months, waiting for the second half of the season. I must say – I’m ready for Mad Men to end. I’ve enjoyed the show, but it’s time for some Don Draper resolution.
I am excited to start Parenthood, now that it’s over. Don’t worry – I’ll keep a box of tissue close. I’ve heard every episode is a tearjerker.
Another show I’m excited to dive into is Downton Abbey as well. With any luck, I’ll immerse myself and emerge with a British accent.
What are you watching? Any shows you’re excited for this spring?
