As a friend mentioned in the comments on my previous post, it was well worth it to watch the second episode of black-ish, which was so funny, better than the first episode, and worth the wait. I look forward to more with this show.
Mysteries of Laura is still fun too. I don't expect it to win any awards, but it's enjoyable.
I loved the premiere of A to Z which I was really looking forward to. I think it's charming and sweet, and I just love the actors.
I wasn't planning to watch, but a coworker recommended I check out Selfie, another show with an unfortunate title. It was better than I expected. I really like John Cho, and I'm giving this one a season pass.
I also checked out Manhattan Love Story, and eh. While I think it's fun to hear the inner thoughts of the main characters as they related to the same experience, the majority of the show was done in voice over and I think it was just too much. I'll give it another try, but this one is iffy.
Looking forward to Homeland tonight, and American Horror Story: Freak Show later in the week. I think for AHS, I might have to record it and watch over the weekend during daylight hours. I really don't like being scared, but I love Jessica Lange and the performances on the show. Speaking of being scared--the commercials for Annabelle freak me the hell out and I would never purposely see that movie. I find dolls creepy anyway, and those ads aren't helping!
In the movie world, I saw Gone Girl on Friday. As I expected, it was better than the book. I still didn't care for the ending, but it played better on screen than it did in the book, in my opinion. I thought Ben Affleck was great. I went to a 10:30am showing (AMC charges only $6 for shows before noon) and was surprised by how many people were there. It was mostly women in their 50s and 60s who looked like teachers or librarians...how's that for a stereotype? Anyway, I thought it was interesting that they all looked the same. There were a few guys thrown in as well.
Ciao for now!
