After quite a few weeks of non-usage, I have been diving into Netflix a lot lately. I have been searching for some TV shows that are finished airing so that I can watch the whole series, episode after episode. There are SO many options on Netflix and I love it. The hard part is actually deciding what to watch.
Peter and I started watching Stargate SG-1. We just finished season 2 today. I have already seen all of Stargate Atlantis and most of Stargate Universe, but I can’t believe I haven’t actually watched the original SG-1 yet. I really like it! The only bad thing is that I know some of the things that will happen in the series because of Atlantis. Also because Peter has seen SG-1 numerous times and has mentioned a few things in the past. That is one of the things I hate most about watching old TV shows. I HATE knowing anything about them. I love all the little surprises that happen throughout a series. Anyway, I love SG-1 so far and I wish I could watch it faster, but it’s something that Peter and I are watching together. I look forward to when Ben Browder and Claudia Black from Farscape come into the series!!
I also started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Joss Whedon has done so many brilliant things and so I really wanted to give Buffy a chance. I just finished season 1 and I am a little on the fence about it. It is very cheesy. The show is supposed to be about vampires and supernatural things, but it’s so corny that it’s not even scary at all. I have found myself rolling my eyes so many times. Sarah Michelle Gellar’s voice is kind of annoying as well. Every time she speaks, all I can think about is her in Cruel Intentions teasing Ryan Phillippe. Also just like with Stargate, I know some things that will happen in the show and it sucks. I knew that Angel was a vampire, so that was no surprise. Now I am anxiously awaiting when Willow starts dating a girl and when/how Spike comes into the show and how come Buffy will date him but not Angel. I know there are some holes in my knowledge, but I would rather be misinformed and then surprised when the events actually unfold. I will try to look past the cheesiness and continue to watch this.
The next show I have kind of, sort of started watching is Mad Men. It is definitely my least favourite out of the 3 shows so far. I don’t even know if I will actually continue to watch it. I am only on episode 8 of season 1, but it just seems like the show is not going anywhere. It is kind of boring actually. The same thing is touched on every episode and it is not keeping my interest. Plus, I really hate the way women were treated in the workplace and at home back in that timeframe. The smoking is driving me crazy as well. Everyone is smoking all the time for almost the whole episode. Ugh. The smoke interferes with the camera and I find it hard to concentrate on what is happening in the episode because I am too distracted with the smoke. Yuck. Someone please tell me that is gets better because I am about to give up on it.
