Recently I have been watching a lot of television shows. I got Netflix a few months ago, and I have been taking great advantage of it. My favourite shows to watch recently have been Reign, Breaking Bad, and Glee.
During the summer when I first saw the Reign promos, I became very excited for the new show. I watched the Pilot a day before the official premier because M3 plays Reign a day early, which is totally awesome. And to tell you the truth, it has been really good. I know a lot of people have been bashing it because it is not always historically correct; I even read this review that said people (teenage girls mainly) would be fooled and take Reign as fact, but I disagree. This show is arresting. It does what a television show is supposed to: it entertains the audience. And some of the events do come off as a bit off, ridiculous and unlikely, even, but that kind of thing would make people who are not total history buffs want to do their own research on Mary Stuart and her life. At least I wanted to; I took out “Mary Queen of Scots” by Antonia Fraser because this show made me interested in her. And I also really like to watch attractive British boys, so Toby Regbo, you go!
About a month ago, I randomly started watching Glee from the first season because I only started watching in season three. And I have to say it is pretty freakin’ good. The music is alright, not mind-blowing, but I like how it is written. I prefer this older Glee over the current Glee. It was way better before they added all those annoying characters (ahem Marley) in the fourth season.
My favourite show has become Breaking Bad. I started watching about a week after the finale, which is really sad because I wish I could have started watching at the very beginning of the show, but it’s fine. I saw the last scene, which was really dumb of me, as my friends pointed out, because my brother was watching it during dinner. I started watching Breaking Bad, though, and thank goodness for that. I love it. I am almost done watching season four, and I really want to finish but at the same time I don’t because then I won’t be able to watch it for the first time again.
Those are my favourite television shows of the moment. They are all pretty good, and I highly recommend them. And also because the Breaking Bad finale was such a big thing, I’m pretty sure you guys have seen breaking Bad. Glee, too, has been popular, so you’ve probably seen it, as well. Let me know what you guys watch in the comments. Or also if you’ve got any opinions on my favourite shows, make sure to let me know.
These past few weeks I have not really had anything to write about, so I thought maybe I could try telling you guys what I’ve been doing. Truth be told, I haven’t actually done much except for these last two days.
I watched The Hunger Games: Catching Fire yesterday, on the 30th. I don’t think I’ll review it, though, because it came out over a week ago and I bet everyone has gotten around to writing one already. Unless of course you guys want me to write a review, so let me know if you do. I will tell you that Finnick Odair was breathtakingly gorgeous! All the girls I talked to after the movie were practically drooling over his hotness. Well it was the day after Black Friday, so after the movie my friends and I decided to go shopping. I live in Canada, as you have probably already inferred after reading some posts, so the deals weren’t exactly spectacular. Our little group decided to venture into Forever 21, though, and a friend of mine and I bought matching jeans for $7.80!! Can you believe how great a deal that is?! And they’re jeggings, which I am really excited about because I haven’t worn any sort of skinny pant since the seventh grade.
Today my family went out and watched my town’s Christmas parade. We were an hour late, though, so we didn’t really see much because everybody was crowding at the front to get all the freebies sponsors were giving away. The parade was alright; I saw some really adorable dancers for different dance companies, and I actually saw a Mountie. In the area where I live, we have separate city police departments, so I don’t see Mounties often.
So Black Sunday, right? Still some deals going on; my family went shopping. Dear Lord, we went shopping! You want to know the highlight of this shopping experience? You do, I know it. I went to Holts and bought a new wallet! It’s a beautiful rusty-brown colour by Marc by Marc Jacobs that actually folds. And it was on sale, so I saved $50 on the sucker. I was going to buy the black zip-around with the tarnished gold plaque that is like a wallet version of the Marc by Marc Jacobs bag everyone has, but that wouldn’t have been as practical. Plus mine comes in a beautiful colour. The black one was gorgeous, too, but I don’t know. This one spoke to me.
So that is the basic rundown of the happenings in my life. Yup, I don’t really go out much, and when I do, I shop. So tell me what you guys have been doing with your time. Any of you go Black Friday shopping? Are your lives more exciting than mine? Tell me in the comments down below.
