Season Premiere: 9-1-1 (2.01-2.02)

Fox’s 9-1-1 had a two-night premiere, so I’m just going to count them both as one episode. Overall, I was really pleased, and some of my concerns from the trailer ended up being non-issues.

2018 Fall TV schedule

Man, I got really behind on this one. 9-1-1 premieres early tonight and a whole slew of shows on this list start this week. This list covers shows both old and new that I’m interested in right now. Some of them probably won’t work for me. Some won’t work for the networks. I can only hope we overlap on that regard.

So what’s coming up this season?

2017-18 TV Wrap-up: The Beeboverse

Yeah, yeah. That trio of CW shows comprising DC’s Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow may officially still be known as the Arrowverse, But Cuddle Me Beebo, the lovable Elmo knockoff off that flew from the shelves, was a god for a little while and even sort of…you know, I can’t spoil it…but suffice to say that Beebo has made its presence known in two of the three series and has to exist in the third, since they’re all connected.

So, I’m calling it: The Arrowverse is now the Beeboverse, and I’ll fight you over it. But since it’s all so much better when we get along, let’s take a look at three shows that, even when they’re not perfect, never fail to entertain me.

State of Leisure: Let’s talk about stuff.

Hi, again! So, let’s be real. Marvel kind of broke my brain for a bit. I mean, I binged a lot.  I was going to be all “Oh, look, every word in that sentence is its own link, ah, there are so many!” but…there were so many. So, check out my Marvel tag for the Road To Infinity War series if you missed it real-time. I didn’t take it to the extreme like those people who spent 30+ hours at a theater watching every MCU movie before Infinity War, but I did watch every movie (except The Incredible Hulk) and I think I watched at least six movies in the last day and a half leading up IW.

Watched them. Wrote about them. Ranked them. And then lost the will to write anything else.  Until now! I’ve noticed a trend over the last few years where I’ll basically hiatus from about March to June  and then October to January, and even though every time I come back and am all “This time I’m not going to abandon the three of you who still read what I have to say!” … I kind of always do.

So, I’m going to try to be better about that. I’m aiming for two posts a weekish. One sometime during the weekend and one sometime during the week. We’ll see how that goes. If I get a good backlog of posts built up, or I get bitten by something amazingly timely, I might do more, who knows.

But here’s what’s in the pipeline right now:

2017-2018 TV season wrap-up. I just finished Supernatural, and now I’m caught up on everything I decided to stick with except for The Orville. I think I’m four episodes back on that still.

2018-2019 TV season preview. New stuff’s coming! Old stuff’s returning! Let’s make the annual, sure to change before the season’s out calendar of far too much television for one person to consume.

2018 Leisure Time Movie Challenge. I need to go through my list of movies I’ve watched this year, see if any of them count against the challenge, and make posts for them. (Sidenote: My Media In Review post is going to be all kind of messed up this year. I got the the Marvel Experiment and just stopped tracking things. And months after it closed, I just now went back all “What did I see?  When did I see it? Why did I see it?)

Mission: POSSIBLE. I, uh, only sort of learned my lesson from the Road to Infinity War. In preparation for Mission Impossible: Fallout, I’m going to revisit the other six movies in the series before seeing it (but I’m totally not seeing it opening week). I’ve seen the original a bunch, M:Iii once when it came out, and I thought I’d seen the third one, but apparently not because I was very confused when I watched Ghost Protocol. Still haven’t seen Rogue Nation.

Other books. I read books this year! And there wasn’t a glorified comic strip or children’s book in sight! After hating Anger Is A Gift so much, I actually dusted off my GoodReads account to warn more people that it might not be the book they’re looking for, and I realized just how much stuff I’d put on my To Read shelf without ever actually reading it. I’m hoping some of them are available in my library’s ebook collection, and I’m going to try to get at least two more in before the year’s up. *Sigh* I remember the days when four books was like a two-week adventure or something.

So, that should keep me busy along with work, helping friends move and trying to make my own apartment look like something a human being lives in and not a cave troll. Yay!
