2017 Media in Review: TV edition

I may not have kept up with movies or books in 2017, but I sure did watch some old TV. Still not as much as last year, when I watched 13 seasons worth, but given how much new TV I’ve crammed into this year, getting through 9 seasons is saying something. (Probably that I don’t get out much, but that’s okay.)

Without further ado:

2015 Media in Review: ‘We provide…leverage.’

Every now and again, there’s a show that’s so good it just grabs you by the face and says “Love me.” And you do, because how could you not?

2014 Media in Review: I watch way too much TV

So, I didn’t see many movies at the theater last year, I read even fewer books, and my movies on DVD/Instant have taken a massive hit from their 2011 high of 74. And it’s probably because over the course of 12 months I watched 26 seasons worth of old TV. Granted, some of those were really short seasons, but still. That’s a lot of TV. Let’s take a look in the last official Media in Review post before next year.

Premiere week is almost here….

With so many new shows premiering soon (and some not for a frustratingly long time), I’ve updated the list of Fall TV that caught my eye. You can check it out here.

While I hate the long wait on Grimm and Constantine, I’m a little hopeful that Supernatural and Arrow don’t start up until mid October. Because, I’m not saying I’m going to binge on seaason nine and two, respectively, once they hit Netflix…but I’m probably going to end up doing that. And the more time between the past season availability date and the current season premiere date, the fewer episodes will have passed by the time I’m current. I figure, if I can start no more than four episodes behind, I’ll try to catch up/keep up live.

Rewatch news

I’m about five years behind on Criminal Minds, but now that it’s streaming, I decided to start a re/watch. I’d only ever seen a handful of season one episodes anyway. Just starting the aftermath of the Tobias Hankel episodes in season two.

The Smallville rewatch is still lagging. I started a post after season four, but it’s hard writing about the tangled mess that is the Luthor family. I’m partway through season five, but endeavoring not to watch anymore until the season four post is done. Which means I’m not actually watching it, I’m just letting it eat two spaces in my DVD queue. Along with some Chris Pine rom com (Blind Date) that I’m also not watching, because OMG TV is my life right now, apparently.
