#905: Watch Married at First Sight

When I discovered this tv show, my mom was appalled at the concept. My sister was gleeful at the prospects. They both got sucked into it and we watched the entire season available on OnDemand.

It’s as crazy as it sounds: 3 couples get matched up with strangers and don’t see each other until their wedding day. They then have 6 weeks–which ends up seeming like an arbitrary time limit–to decide whether to stay married or get a divorce.

I was intrigued. It amazed me that real people would, first of all, agree to this experiment, but more than that, once they did, act like someone was forcing them to do it. Read the rest of this entry »

#904: Dating Naked

Baring it all on a first date isn’t something most experts recommend. In fact, some people think there should always be a few things left hidden, to keep the mystery alive.

I disagree with these people, whether it’s smart or not. Read the rest of this entry »

#880: See Love

Thoughts after the 1st episode: This is okay; no real need to keep watching.

Thoughts after the 2nd episode: I’m liking it more. I think I should keep watching.

Thoughts after the 3rd episode: These characters are both annoying.

#875: Fuller House

This is terrible. It’s not terrible in a so-bad-it’s-good way. It’s not terrible in a so-bad-it’s-funny way. It’s not even terrible in a train-wreck-you-can’t-look-away-from way.

It’s just terrible in the purest sense of the word.

#857: Watch Making a Murderer

If you haven’t seen this series yet (in which case I have to assume you don’t have Netflix or else have some really amazing things going on in your life that called you away from being a lazy slob in front of the TV all weekend), there may be some spoilers ahead.

Really, the biggest spoiler is what I said about the original true-crime mystery obsession, Serial: I want everyone to be telling the truth.

What’s most interesting to me though isn’t whether the accused (and punished) is actually guilty.  It’s not how messed up our court system appears to be.  It’s people’s reactions to the follow-up articles claiming not all of the information was presented in the documentary.

#850: See Sens8

Play on words, weird realities. Sens8 has the trappings of a show I would like. Of course, this makes me seem way easier to please than I am when it comes to TV shows. It also sweeps aside the inescapable fact that I had no idea what was going on for a lot of the first episode.

To some, that’s intriguing. To me, it’s frustrating. It’s why my brother hates watching movies with my sisters and me. It’s why I’m considered an anxious person. It’s why I drive people crazy asking questions they can’t answer.

It’s also why I’m not sure if I liked the show, and I’m not sure I want to keep watching it. Read the rest of this entry »

#831: Watch The Great British Baking Show

When I told my boss about the pie I’d baked, he told me he’d started watching The Great British Baking Show.

Apparently, when the most recent season finale aired, 40% of the UK watched it.

Which is crazy.

But then you watch it and realize why.  Or at least, as an American, I can tell you why.
