Thoughts for August 15, 2017


  • Already halfway through August! :( Can we please hit the 'pause' button to delay the arrival of September!

  • Orphan Black series finale: it was a nice tidy happy ending for all. I just wasn’t satisfied with the way they let Allison and Felix waste away to become shadows of their former selves. They were both so vibrant and exciting in the first few seasons but seemed to fall by the wayside after the introduction of the Castor clone storyline and, especially, the Westmoreland storyline. I would have been fine if they had just stuck with Dyad and Neolution rather than introducing all these layers that weren't needed.

  • EW+F concert: of course they were brilliant but I wish they had extended ‘September’. Chic were great as well only minus Nile Rodgers who was ill L. Loved their version of ‘Get Lucky’.

  • Pain, pain go away: head pain, neck pain, back pain….ugh, getting old sucks

  • Good Omens: David Tennant cast as Crowley and Michael Sheen as Aziraphale in the Amazon 6-part series. PERFECT CASTING. Now we wait for the remainder of the casting details.

  • TV fav of the moment #1: Prison Break Season II…I’m about a 1/3 of the way through and it is as good as season one. I'm just thankful I never watching this show live because the week-to-week cliffhangers would have killed me.

  • TV fav of the moment #2: GoT current season – impressive work on the cinematography and special effects this year. I can’t believe there are only 8 more episodes left for the entire series. It is sooo good right now…but I wish they would have spread it out over three seasons as I think they may be compressing the storylines too much get everything in.

  • Things I didn’t know I needed: Leslie Jones watching Game of Thrones

  • What’s with the crappy service? I’m looking at you Home Depot, Moneris….

  • Currently reading: Frost Like Night – the final book in the Snow Like Ashes series. It is meh so far but I’m only ¼ of the way in. Not happy with what they have done with some of the characters. I basically just want to finish this series. Usually YA series aren’t so, well, YA-ish…but this one is.
