Oh, yes, it's the midseason slump here at ol' FMS. The only current show I'm recapping is on break for the holidays. I've got two DVDs waiting for me to watch them, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm reading Ready Player One and am close to finishing, so that'll be a post soon enough. So, yeah, kinda slow around the little blog.
In other television thoughts: Mr. Mouse and I are just shaking our heads at the thought of Community going on hiatus - that show is so brilliant, so funny, so spot-on so much (like that fanTASTIC Glee parody tonight) ... I guess it's just too smart for too many people. (Much like late, lamented Arrested Development and Better Off Ted.) American Horror Story is definitely NOT too smart for most people; I haven't seen the latest episode yet (altho I got spoiled for the reveal about Violet - thanks, Google entertainment news blurbs) but it is just a hot mess that doesn't know WTF it wants to be. Both Mr. Mouse and I are watching Hell on Wheels and while it has its occasional moments - when Bohannon woke up to a chicken staring at him, f'rinstance - mostly it reminds me how much it is not Deadwood. I'm keeping up with Grimm and Once Upon a Time too, because I love fairy tales and I keep hoping that the writers/showrunners for those shows who used to work for Buffy will get their acts together. And on it goes.
Tell me, what are you watching these days? (Yes, Joe, I know I have to go back and finish T:TSCC S2, but that seems like more of a summer show to me.)
