Head Back To Camp, as Jeff Probst would say on Survivor. I’m feeling very Meh about the whole Christmas thing. I don’t have anything much to say about it. If you are looking for a great Christmas message, I do got something for ya – A Christmas message from (someone who is not) the Queen – that was easily the best Christmas post I’ve read this week. :)
I’m secretly a bit of a Survivor fan, and season 29 ended last week – exactly as it should have.
The Missing had an incredible and perfectly done ending. I expected they would stick the landing and they did not disappoint at all. I think that show was far and away the best tv show seen on air in 2014 – and it has already scored some Golden Globe nominations – one for Best TV movie or Miniseries and also Frances O’Connor picked up a nomination for Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV movie.
Unlike a couple of other TV shows which were utterly disappointing in their ending – I’m looking at you, The Fall season 2, and Homeland..
Sometimes I see Jeff standing next to my TV when shows are airing on it, and sometimes he says exactly that line to me. Right at the end of The Fall episode 6, as the screen went to black and the credits rolled, he was there, saying “I Got Nothing For Ya, Head Back To Camp”.
With the Homeland finale he showed up fairly early on, and I kept saying wait, there is more show to watch, and he kept saying, just trust me, there’s nothing here for ya.
If there is one thing I have learned from watching Survivor, it is that Jeff is always right. :)
Recently we went through our TV folder and deleted some things, added some things, and I wrote a list of shows I have not watched in full yet. This was a great idea considering most of the shows I was watching have now ended their season.
Some of these shows, I have seen a few episodes or even entire seasons – eg The Mentalist, I watched up to season 4, but it has been a while and I think I would prefer to go back to the start and watch it from the beginning. Some of these shows I might not like – I usually give a show 3-4 episodes to grab me and if it doesn’t work by then, I’m out.
Some of these shows I have seen episodes here or there which has made me add it to the list of things I want to watch. So here’s the list I’ll be working on over the next few weeks..
A Young Doctors Notebook, Bates Motel, The Blacklist, Chuck, COPS, Criminal Minds, Deadwood, Drop Dead Diva, Extant, Falling Skies, The Following, Forever, Grays Anatomy, Hannibal, Happy Valley, The Hour, How to make it in America, Justified, The Kill Point, Last Resort, The Leftovers, Luther, Manhattan, The Mentalist, Murder In The First, Mysteries Of Laura, NCIS, Orphan Black, The Pacific, Power, Resurrection, The Thick Of It, Torchwood, Upstairs Downstairs, Wahlburgers, Without A Trace,
