I was in Barnes & Noble and saw this:
This is crazy! There was just behind-the-scenes released/leaked (not sure which) and she already has a doll! I'm... mildly excited.
I'm all over lots of stuff lately. I cannot wait for 'The Great Gatsby', which comes out next month. Today I watched the trailer for 'Catching Fire' and it looks GREAT.
I am watching SO many tv shows, and just a year or so ago I was watching just a few, and most of them I would wait until they were available on DVD. Now I'm watching Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Borgias, Once Upon A Time, Bates Motel, and Hannibal. And then True Blood, Newsroom, and Dexter will be coming back soon. TOO MUCH. I know I should be focusing on other things. But these shows are so good.
Television in general is incredible. Yeah, there are some bad shows on the air (mostly the reality shows), but overall television has never been so...EPIC than it is now. It used to be sitcoms and soaps. That was really it. Maybe a handful of dramas were around twenty-or-so years ago, but they certainly didn't have much of a budget. The shows on the air - the good ones that I'm referring to - are created with just as much dedication as good movies are. Real acting, real writing, real set design. It is incredible. Sometimes I feel like I'm watching only to be able to go and fangirl all over Tumblr or whatever, but when I think about it, I think I really would watch these shows no matter how busy I was - even if I waited for them to be released on DVD. I love the stories. There is so much in them. In my opinion, they're just as good as movies, and actually even better than most movies put out recently.
On the other hand, I sometimes think I watch too much in general. I should read and write more. I am steadily reading, and I'm about 300 pages into Anna Karenina
. I am reading some of it every night. It's a monster. *shrugs*
Today I've watched Game of Thrones. (HOLY SHIT.) I still need to watch Mad Men, Borgias (two episodes), Iron Man 2
, and A Royal Affair
. The last is a Danish movie I wanted to see anyway because Alicia Vikander is in it, BUT THEN I realized Mads Mikkelson is in it as well, so watching it is a necessity.
Also, about the television, I also think about the fact that there so many shows I still want to get into, ON TOP of all the ones I'm already watching. Off the top of my head: Sherlock, Doctor Who, Supernatural, and a ton of other ones. I have links in my sidebar to lists if you're interested.
