I'm experimenting with a gray thing. :D

I am experimenting with zebra.   I have actually been asked who colored my hair because they wanted these shades.   I had to tell them same person that straightened my hair.   It grows this way.

    I did not follow the exercise regiment that I laid out (have to exercise if watching) and ended up binge watching Breaking Bad.  I finished it and reluctantly gave the discs back to my daughter. I may have to buy the series so I can do the exercise reward route the next go around.  This time watching for all the nuances.

    Brilliantly written, brilliantly acted.  I can see why it won so many awards.

    Maybe my next exercise/reward will be Justified - I liked the few I saw but I believe it was on opposite Supernatural for a while - and nothing trumps that for me. :)

    Anyhow, off to find some other series to motivate me to get my full hour of exercise in...

    Last night I discovered the series Younger. It's a sitcom, but so clever and exactly how I feel in the world of publishing right now (what is this street team and swag you speak of?).

    Iron Chef America. This is not a good show to binge-watch. I find myself running around the kitchen and stirring much faster than normal. I have been known to pan flip my food, but my new ceramic pots are too slippery. Everything just slides back in without turning. After watching ten straight episodes if ICA, I feel like such a failure.

    The show I'm watching is using Silkie Chickens. They look like dead black dragons. Ick.

    Finished watching the entire series of Mash.  Now I am going between Quincy and the original Dark Shadows.  Really enjoying watching these old shows.

    Christina Aguilera videos.  :D  ;D I've become more of a fan now (Thanks to the Voice) than when she first became popular.

    Also, binging on this past season of The Vampire Diaries & Once Upon a Time c/o Hulu Plus.  ;)

    I just discovered The 100 on Netflix via a podcast I listen to. My only excuse for not getting into it earlier is that it is on CW. Despite that, it really is intriguing...a little Lord of the Flies, a little Hunger Games, a little hard sci fi.

    I watched Olive Kitteridge on HBO this week.  It's a mini-series with 4 1-hr. episodes.  I'd read the book a while back.  Frances McDormand was great as Olive.

    Started watching season #2 of "The Blacklist" yesterday. Got through the first 5 episodes -- does that count as a binge? ;)

    The acting and filming in OK were great...but I have to admit that I really hated that show, even though I watched the whole thing.  I thought it was the most unrelentingly depressing show I'd ever watched.  :o  I love Frances McDormand, but not in that.  Is the book that depressing?  (Sorry if you liked the series, Marti--different strokes!)

    I really liked the series. Not something that I will re-watch. It was a while back that I read the book . . .liked it but didn't think about it much afterwards.  This is not everyone's cup of tea.  Not a feel-good TV show.  I understand that it was through Frances McDormand's efforts that it was made.  I think it was the best thing I've seen her in, and I did like her in Fargo.  (Actually, while Fargo was very popular, it was a violent downer with a little black humor).  I read some discussions on IMDB about Olive Kitteridge.  Many people were very judgmental about her character and said she was mentally ill.  I disagree.  She was cranky.  She went too far with her awful behavior at her son's wedding.

    I never watched any of the Angel series....
    It was worth it. If only for Amy Acker!

    Its interesting how that group of actors keep working together. I just tried watching their version of Much Ado. It is nicely filmed (in B+W) but Alexis Denisoff just cannot pull off the witty lines.

    Stargate SG-1

    I binge-watched Stargate Atlantis first, then Stargate Universe, now FINALLY SG-1 is available NOT IN GERMAN on our available channels. They show four episodes in a row, three nights a week. But the first few seasons were only in German, so I am looking forward to looking backward. Once again.

    I don't binge-watch anything on line, because I'm at the computer all day.

    I'm binge watching Danger Man,  starring Patrick McGoohan via Netflix DVDs. I only saw the occasional episode over the years. I'm enjoying them. I like the voice-overs during the episode. One thing that stands out is that unlike modern TV shows which have a wrap-up after the final commercial, Danger Man will frequently end earlier than is the fashion nowadays and tell the subsequent events via voice-over. I sort of like this.

    The last thing I binge-watched was Pie in the Sky on Acorn TV. It's a quirky British police series about a Detective Inspector who would much rather be tending to the cooking in his small restaurant than investigating crime. Starring Richard Griffiths (who has since died  :'( ) there were five series made. This is one of the few series where I'm considering buying the DVD set if it disappears from the streaming services.
