I know, what? But I have stuff to say and I've decided to say it. I'd made this tumblr post with a big list of TV shows on my DVR back in January and now I'm knocking them off one by one. There are a bunch of shows that are ending, or soon to be ending, or I'm walking away from, this spring and I thought hey, maybe I would make a few posts here about how I'm feeling about them.

Except Teen Wolf. All I have to say about Teen Wolf is that I banked season 3B on my DVR for self-spoiled binge-watching, and now I'm probably not going to watch very much of it, and I'm out on the show moving forward. Still writing fic, still reblogging ridiculousness on tumblr, but not watching the show.

Spoils of Babylon is six half-hour episodes, great for an afternoon binge-watch, and if you are old enough to have watched the more ridiculous pulp-novel-based miniseries of the late 70s and early 80s, then you will enjoy this Will Farrell parody. It's not laugh-a-minute hilarious, more like, chuckles and nods of recognition, but it's worth watching if just for Kristin Wiig and Tobey Maguire and Tim Robbins dancing around at the end.

White Collar was super fun this season until the final episode which was very frustrating! I loved Rachel/Rebecca as the villain, loved how she molded herself to be the perfect woman for Neal, and in some ways she was except for the killing people part. ("Cool motive! Still murder.") The season is ending with a short six-episode season, and mostly I hope that we'll get Sara back before the end. The show feels a little tired at this point, especially via finding ways to keep Neal in the cuff, so I'm ready to let it go.

I stopped watching Suburgatory two episodes in because they were emphasizing the whole "the Shays hate Lisa" storyline, which I never liked, and also the show just didn't seem that funny to me anymore. Sad, but ah well!

Top Chef was annoying at the end, wasn't it? Not like I won't watch it next season, but still.

As for Nigelissima, Nigella cooking shows are serious anxiety soothers for me. I procure them through means and keep them around for instant calming. They're very effective.

And The Soup abides.
