While today’s political climate may feel kind of 1980s-esque, the technology of today is so different, I didn’t reallly think a modern MacGyver was long for the world. And yet, this week, I finished season one of CBS’s reboot, and I have to say, overall it was a great experience. The cast is charismatic with great chemistry, the stories were exciting, and while Mac’s improvising seemed to move a little too fast to catch all of it, it was still fun.
I was pretty hopeful when this season started that I’d be able to keep up with all my shows, but that hope was clearly misplaced. I fell behind pretty early, and things are just starting to come back from winter hiatuses — or in the case of Grimm, just getting going. But did I used that hiatus time to get caught up?
No. Instead I wrote some fanfic, went to work, watched a ton of Youtube videos (mostly of people skateboarding), binged on Microsoft solitaire games, had family Christmas, blogged a little and snuggled the most demanding of demanding snuggle buddies.
