I finished the second season of Call the Midwife. It was, just like the first, superb. I managed to get current on FX’s The Bridge and it has been an exciting first season. I’m now enthralled with Sons of Anarchy and am 1/3 of the way through it. As the 6th season is coming to air next week I am trying to get current so I can catch up and watch it in real-time. Muscling through that much TV in a week will likely be a challenge, but I pace it at 2 or 3 episodes per day. I did watch a couple of episodes of Suits and have found that to be a good show, but mix it in very sparingly. I’ve still yet to watch more Under the Dome, but will make time for it after I am current on SoA.
Sprout complained for the first time this week. She said something like Hulu not keeping up with her shows. I don’t keep up with her shows and have no idea if they’re on hiatus or what. I will have to check that out this week so I can figure out how to keep her happy. I remember when I was ten my parents FINALLY got cable in the house and it was exciting to watch Nickelodeon as I’d heard people talking about it but had never really watched any of it, but I was much happier listening to music and solving puzzles in my room than watching TV. Sprout loves her shows, laughs at them, and just really enjoys vegging out in front of the TV so I have to get this researched and fixed! I did pick up a copy of Sims 3 for her to play so that has kept her occupied and not obsessing over TV.
The only snag I’ve hit thus far was trying to figure out the best/fastest way to get content. For example, I ascertained an episode of Suits via Sickbeard but then found out I could watch seasons 1 and 2 on Amazon Prime (in HD!) and if I get current I can watch the airing season on Hulu+. It is somewhat confusing having to hop around and I have really struggled working out a way to figure out the most ideal and efficient way. I’m still using Trakt, which is good for tracking what I’ve seen or missed, but it doesn’t guide me to find the content. I’ve even gone full nerd and created a spreadsheet.
