I saw so much buzz on Twitter and Facebook a few weeks ago when the third season of Downton Abbey was about to premiere that I had to see it for myself. Roman and I started watching it and were instantly hooked. We watched seasons 1 and 2 in two weeks and are now caught up to the episodes that are currently airing. What can be better than smug British Aristocrats who deplore people who violate old traditions and traitorously go to the United States? The grandmother on the show is worth watching for; she is hilarious.
When Jen and I were working before Christmas we would sometimes catch up on On Demand episodes of Revenge that she had missed. I had never seen it before and it is definitely not a show that you can jump into in the middle. There are way to many plot lines and characters to not have the background from the start of the series. I'm almost caught up to current episodes and I can't get enough. I don't watch soap operas during the day, but this is certainly close to that with lots of rich people, murders, alcohol and deception. Makes for some interesting watching.
My last new time-consuming activity isn't a tv show, but sure is addicting. Erin told me about Candy Crush Saga and oh my goodness do I spend far too much time playing this game.
I have made it to level 30 so far and it's a pretty mindless way to pass the time. Thank you January for giving me the chance to veg out a little and take some down time. I wouldn't really call what I've been doing productive, but it's been entertaining and helped me to catch a few deep breathes that I had been desperately needing.
