 What I’m Watching

📺 The Last Ship– Season 3 isn’t wowing me as much as the 1st two did (I was so in love with this one) but I knew they couldn’t keep up that pace forever.
📺 Wayward Pines– Somehow I missed all of season 2. Thank goodness for On Demand…though I’m not as captivated this season so far.
📺 That 70’s show – About 1/2 way through with watching this on on Netflix…I’m going to miss it when we’re done. So much more than I expected.
📺 Jeopardy – Thank goodness we finally have a chance to catch up…Maybe we’ll only be a week behind by the time the next season begins 😉

      That sounds like so much fun! And I think we all have those huge gaps…there’s just no way to now that much about all the categories!!!

  1. The Cat Came Back looks fun. And Wayward Pines gets better- I thought S2 started off rough but it ends better. I hope they do a S3. Not everyone likes Jason Patric in his role but I kinda warmed up to him.

      I don’t mind Jason Patric so far but am just not too keen on the direction it’s taking and I think that the mystery aspect was what I loved so much in Season 1. I’ll stick it out…though I don’t know if my husband will and we’ll see how it goes.

      It definitely got less interesting as the season went on…if it doesn’t pick up this season I may not stick around for the 3rd (assuming it gets renewed)

    Ha! I remember being surprised by how much I enjoyed That 70’s show, too. I started watching it when I was sick and bored, and quickly got attached to the group. It was a fun show!
    Your new covers feel so romantic and summery, I love it. I read the Harry Potter last week and enjoyed it, I hope you do too. Happy reading!

  3. I ordered Faithful by A. Hoffman today. I really have liked her since Practical Magic and cannot wait to read this one. The Book of Speculations I am adding to my to-be-read pile. I am very much intrigued by the cover (yes, I am one of those readers 🙂

    And I am so with you about The Last Ship. For me, it all changed when Dr. Scott was killed. And the storyline now seems so forced and convoluted.
