I don’t know if you remember, but before this year (and last year, I guess) I was a massive TV addict. My life basically revolved around books, TV shows, and travelling. Then I got sucked into having a social life with actual people (I know, ew) and I had to cut down on my precious Netflix binges. I only stuck with the shows that I already adored (with some exceptions, see below) and stopped myself from starting new ones unless the whole season had already been released. So I’m now left with a trillion things to watch, and not enough time to watch them. These are the ones that I absolutely need to get to before the end of the year, or my soul will never be the same.
So when I said I was up to date with all of my BEST SHOWS EVER, I didn’t mean that I’m up to date with The 100. I didn’t have the time this winter to watch it weekly, so Tatum and I marathoned the first half of season four while it was on a break. I’m going to do the same thing with the second half over the summer so I’m all caught up for season five. I am seriously craving my Bellarke fix!
I was going to watch Sense8 before they cancelled it. I was super excited to marathon seasons one and two, and then Netflix ruined everything. Ugh. But THEN the fandom KICKED THE FUCK OFF (and quite rightly too!) and Netflix is giving the show a two hour finale. Which means there will be a conclusion, which means I can catch up! I know next to nothing about it (I watched the first episode months ago but I’ve forgotten everything) and I’ve managed to avoid all spoilers so I am ready to go.
Dee assures me that iZombie is worth watching and I trust her taste. The showrunner, Rob Thomas, also wrote Veronica Mars back in the day, so I’m expecting it to be super snarky. Apparently I’m going to get pissed off with the shipping situation?!?! Maybe. I don’t know.
I’m meant to be reading American Gods before I watch the TV show, but I have so little self control lately that I might go back on my word and watch the whole thing anyway. I mean, Neil Gaiman’s books and I don’t have the smoothest relationship, so would I really be missing out?
I read The Handmaid’s Tale yeaaaars ago for my A Levels and it has still stuck with me. Margaret Atwood writes the best stuff. I haven’t seen much hype for this show, though. Did it not turn out to be very popular? Or am I just disconnected from fandom right now? Both are possible, I guess.
What about you? Do you have any TV shows that you just have to watch in the near future? Are there any that you missed the boat on but want to give a go?
