tv weekend

I'm not usually all about what's on TV tonight. Mostly, television in my house is background noise while I'm doing something else, and even when I do put the TV on I need to have something to do with my hands. (Thus, the quilting and crocheting and cross stitch and everything).

But! This weekend two of my favourite shows come back from hiatus. Tomorrow we get a long awaited dose of the Doctor and the very teased about search for Clara Oswin Oswald when Doctor Who returns. Seriously I could not be more excited about that. (If I had to choose just one show for the rest of my life it just might be Doctor Who, but that's a hard call.)

Then on Sunday I get a dose of Game of Thrones coming back. Which also means a busy day at work, because everyone needs HBO now. Of course given that I've read the books I already know what happens but they've been telling the story so brilliantly that I can't wait to see how things are portrayed.

What are your favourite shows? Do you get much screen time, or save it for just a few special things?

  1. I never miss an episode of either Hawaii 5-0 and Rizzolli & Isles! I really like the fact that in both shows the main characters have such a fun, strong chemistry going on. Not to mention and I actually like what happens in the episodes. Flashpoint is another show I really like, however, new episodes come out so late in the day/night here (11pm!!) that I often miss episodes.

    1. Rizzoli & Isles has been on my list to delve into for awhile, it just always seems like its on at awkward times.

  2. I just finished the first Game of Thrones book this weekend. I'm excited to eventually watch them, because if they're half as good as the books, I have high expectations.

    I watch an infinity amount of tv, I think, but nothing live beyond hockey. Thank god for streaming and the internet.

    1. The internet is just possibly how both of these obsessions started ... without downloading I never would have gotten into the first few seasons. It's just too bad that internet speeds are so slow for streaming!
