Whoa, its hot out there! I realize that it hasn't been the hottest of summers, but this whole Indian Summer thing has got to stop. Its October! We should be drinking hot apple cider and pumpkin lattes, not iced tea. At least the nights are longer, so it gets cooler quicker. But the hot weather is getting old. And I'm getting pretty tired of it.
Acutally, I'm just tired in general. What is it about fall that makes me want to cuddle up on the couch and nap? And I'm not the only one in my household that's feeling sleepy this fall. No, the child is still as active as ever. But my poor DVR is just exhausted! The fall TV schedule is underway and my busy schedule means that my DVR is working overtime to accomodate me.
Its early enough in the season that everything is still all shiny and new and full of possibilities. A to Z
was adorable and got me hooked. Selfie
has lots of promise, even if the pilot was a little weak. Mulaney
had a terrible pilot, but has so many TV critics pulling for it that I'll still watch a few more episodes before I write it off entirely. Plus there's all that Sesame Street
I record for the girl.
And there's more to come! One of my most anticipated new shows this season doesn't even premiere until next week and there's a whole bunch of shows that won't start until after the World Series. I'm not even going to get started on returning shows. What's my poor DVR to do? After a lazy summer of Netflix binging (in which I blew through not only Buffy the Vampire Slayer
, but also its spinoff Angel
, it was that kind of summer), my DVR had it easy. Now its working at almost full capacity, no matter how much I work out.
But, not to worry, this breakneck pace can't last. Soon enough, at least one or two of the shows of the shows I am trying to bond with will get cancelled or put on indefinite hiatus and then there's that whole holiday hiatus when I can catch up on the back log. Who needs to go Christmas shopping or take my kid to see Santa when I can catch up on the crazy antics of Sheldon and the gang on The Big Bang Theory
? I am, of course, joking. I will find many other reasons to put off Christmas shopping.
So my poor DVR just has to hold on for another month or so before it will finally get a bit of a break. Hey, no one said being convenience technology would be convenient for the technology.
So, what's your favorite new TV show? Anything got you hooked yet? I know there's a whole bunch of dramas I haven't gotten to yet, I figure I'll save those for some Netflix binging this summer. Any suggestions?
