Thursday Thirteen #69 Television Edition

Greetings, Kittens!

I finished edits on one project, I'm under deadline for a second and under revision for a third. That's allowed a lot of television to stack up. So here are 13 Shows We Need To Clear Off The DVR.



1. How Earth Changed History.  This is a great show on National Geograph that examines how the elements shaped the earth as we know it. I hate the title just as I hate "How Weather Changed History". Unless tornados can move back in time, it didn't change history, it merely shaped it.

2. Supernatural.  Okay, technically I have the entire season 6 on the DVR and I watched it all, but still, it's there and likes to be acknowledged.

3. Nikita.  I'm still torn on how I feel about Nikita, which is why it's still on the DVR. I love that a Woman of Color is heading a show in a kick-ass role and I have a major couple crush on Nikita and Michael/ Maggie Q and Shane West. That said, I'm not as invested as I wish I was.

4. Breakout Kings.  This one surprised me, but I really do like it. I've managed to miss announcement on whether or not it's coming back, so don't share.

5. Glee.  Yes, yes, I know, how did I miss this? The answer, skillfully. I was out of town and we just haven't gotten around to it. I need to be in a particular mood for Glee and I haven't been feeling it. By next Thursday, I'm sure it'll be seen.

6. Game of Thrones.  This is another mood based show. Considering the depth of the material they had to work with, this is an incredible adaptation. But having read the books and knowing what's coming, I just can't get myself to watch right now. The next time I'm feeling gritty and depressing, I'll marathon them and deal with the inevitable.

7. Teen Wolf.  Love this show! Stunned to do so, but love this one.

8. Sanctuary.  This was skipped because I prefer watching 2 to 3 at a time, so it works well when I'm under deadline to bank these.

9. In Plain Sight.  The partial inspiration for my PsiCorps Chronicles, I love the dynamic between Mary and Marshall and I can't wait to catch up on this soon.

10. White Collar.  Peter and Neal. Need I saw more? 

11. Covert Affairs. Auggie and Annie. Piper Perabo is so cute and Christopher Gorham is a longterm crush back to Jake2.0, put them together in a show with real chemistry and I'm a fan!

12. Flashpoint.  I don't even know how I found this Canadian gem, but I'm so thrilled I did. We just marathoned the last three or four of these and it was a beautiful thing. It's also, in part, responsible for my PsiCorps Chronicles. I just love close law enforcement relationships and happily took it to a whole new level in PsiCorps. Mmm....the thoughts. *grin*

13. The Rachel Maddow Show.  Yes, I watch a news show. In fact, the DVR regularly holds 4.5 hrs of news shows a day from GoodMorning America onward. I record them because I'm usually asleep or busy when they're on and then in the evening I fast-forward through the repetiton, catching the highlights important to me and watching how particular stories have developed over the course of the day.

So there you have it, 13 of the well more than 13 things camping on my DVR. This fall I think I might dedicate a month to television. Doing 13 at a pop, I think it would take at least four T13's to cover all the things I watch. *grin* I guess we'll see.

Happy Thursday!
