More Sleepy Hollow fanfic, Jenny-centric this time. I already loved Jenny, and writing for her made me love her even more. |
The Last Bogeyman
Summary: She's been counting bullets
I'm under the weather and thus do not feel like doing real deep thinky thoughts but I promised myself I'd do quick rundown of what I've been watching so far this season. So, in three sentences or less, drum roll:
The Good Wife: this show continues to barrel along relentlessly. I was initially against the state AG development, but it's been more entertaining and fresh than I expected, and I'm pleasantly surprised by how well they've re-imagined the show without Will so that his presence is no longer a gaping hole. And I'm so, so glad that the Chekhov's gun that was Lemond Bishop is finally going off.
Sleepy Hollow: A little too much Crane family drama, not enough Jenny, not enough Irving. I don't understand, with all of her shady past how Katrina is still so boring. I'm fine with her being a terrible wife, but god, just, my eyes glaze over the second she appears on screen.
The Mindy Project: I wrote about this more extensively on tumblr, but guys, I'm a terrible fan. I think I just don't like when shows let couples get together (unless that was never really what I came to the show for in the first place). I refuse to even feel guilty about it anymore.
Selfie: Mostly dumb, with moments and hints of cleverness and heart, primarily thanks to John Cho (also so nice to see him sans all that creepy Sleepy Hollow make-up). I like Karen Gillan generally, but I feel like she's still settling into the role. I wish they hadn't hit the gas so hard on the UST stuff (I prefer a slow burn, thanks), but I guess it doesn't matter as it will probably get cancelled soon anyway.
The Affair: The first episode was well-acted and the narrative device was less gimmicky than I expected; that said it was sometimes hard to watch. Since I have to track down episodes in pain in the ass ways I'm not sure I'll keep watching.
Arrow: I feel like I'm wading into a minefield here, but I've been mostly enjoying this season. It's definitely having some growing pains, but I'm willing to wait them out (except for Laurel, snore). And I've been genuinely impressed by how Stephen Amell has stepped up his acting game this year.
Jane the Virgin: I would never have contemplated watching this if a few folks with trustworthy opinions hadn't recommended it, but it's just goddamn adorable. A couple of the characters were a little bit cartoonish in the first episode, but by the second episode, they were already taking steps to remedy that.
EDITED to add Brooklyn-99: I knew I was forgetting something, and I can't believe it's this show! Outside of last episode, which was forgettable, this show continues to fire on all cylinders. I couldn't pick a favorite character if my life depending on it.
Okay, that's too much TV. I was contemplating picking up the Flash or Agents of Shield, but really, my plate is full, and I think I'm suffering from superhero ennui. Not watching HTGAWM because I think all the legal stuff will cause too much eye rolling.
