You all know how addicted I am to TV shows. As I work from home, I have lunch alone so I always watch something to keep me company. Fall marks the start of the cold season in the Northern hemisphere, but also the coming back of many shows. Anyway, I don’t really follow the calendar, and I tend to watch what I feel like, and I usually wait a little bit to be able to binge watch a determined show. I couldn’t help myself and started the new season of Doctor Who, but I decided to take a break and watch other things for the moment to prepare myself to watch some episodes in a row.
As I didn’t have a lot to watch (I’m up to date in almost every show I was watching) I started a new one (for me). It’s called Dark Matter, and I couldn’t resist the sci-fy theme. The premises are good: six people awake from stasis on a space ship with their memories completely erased. There’s also an android on board who will help them to recover part of their memories back. I’m not going to tell more to avoid spoilers. It’s an enjoyable show but there’s something missing to make it superb. The characters are quite flat and lack charm, and I guess it is a result of them having lost their memories, but somehow I feel that they could be better constructed. We’ll be discovering more about them as the show progresses, and it is possible that this aspect improves, because for the moment I don’t care a lot about any of them, and that’s not something good to say about a show. There’s also the fact that most of them are quite young, and I am afraid it could develop in a teenager show. Anyway, I hope we can see some evolution and SyFy doesn’t cancel it like they did with Firefly and Warehouse 13.
My lunch break is not the only moment I watch series. We also do it in the evening and during weekends, and that is happening a lot more than in summer, which means… knitting time! yay! I’m currently working on two projects: Hetty and Penelope, both from Untangling Knots.
I started Hetty in May, abandoned it and I decided to finish it this time for good. I’m starting with one of the sleeves, and I definitely want to finish it this month.
And as I’ve said last time, I have joined the Penelope KAL. I started a bit late with this one, but as it is a mindless knitting, I hope I can finish in time. I think I will be alternating the knitting of both cardigans to rest from the lace and the monotony of each one. I want to finish Hetty because I’ve been knitting it for too long, and I want to finish Penelope because I think it’s very wearable and it will be in my fall-winter-spring rotation, plus the colors I chose go with almost everything.
During these months I’ve also been watching Warehouse 13, Orange is the new black, Mistresses (US version), Seinfeld, Devious Maids, and some others. I’m really looking forward to the new seasons of The 100 and Call the Midwife, but for those I’ll have to wait.
And you, what are you watching right now?
