… is, as usual, mostly garbage! But I haven’t done one of these What I’m Watching posts in a while so I thought it’d be fun to give you a rundown.
I’m up to my ears in WIPs, knitting the Holla Knits Summer garments ahead of a Memorial Day weekend photo shoot, which is always a fun game I like to play with myself. 5 garments in 5 weeks – CAN SHE DO IT?!
With the help of TV. Lots and lots of TV.
The Tudors, seasons 1-4, Netflix: I’ve always wanted to watch this show but never got around to it until I recently blew threw the whole thing in 9 days. I LOVED it! Trashy and violent with good costumes and sexy dudes.
A fun game we can play now? Where are they now! Above is a promo shot from season 1. Top, left to right: executed, suicide before scheduled execution, sweating sickness, executed. Middle, left to right: Alive!, dead – maybe poisoned?, King Henry, sweating sickness, consumption. Bottom left to right: executed, written out.
Left to Right: Already way executed, alive!, alive!, King Henry, executed, already dead, already way dead.
Turn, season 1, Netflix: American war history and Jamie Bell? I’m in!
SERIOUSLY lacking worthwhile female characters (sorry Mrs Jamie Bell), but what they lack in female depth they make up for in intrigue and sexiness! Definitely worth checking out. Season 2 just started this week, which I won’t be able to catch until it pops up on Netflix next winter I’m sure, but this first season is worth binging.
And just to tie in the knitting a little bit, my friend Laura designed a hat based on the slouchy beanie Jamie Bell wears throughout the show. Snag it here!
Bloodline, season 1, Netflix: Coach Taylor AKA Kyle Chandler being a sexy sheriff solving crimes while dealing with his deadbeat brother, and other shenanigans.
I’ve got 3 more episodes to watch but I’m super hooked. It’s dark and slow, well written and beautiful. Queue it up.
One Tree Hill, season 1, Netflix: Holy goddamn bullshit garbage garbage.
Murray Mudface leads this blast from the early 2000s hilarity, complete with bootcut jeans, cropped tees, and lots and lots of Gavin DeGraw and Travis. It’s SO AWFUL that I can’t stop watching it? I’m rolling up to the end of season 1 with EIGHT TO GO WHAT THE HELL WB? Dawson’s Creek (love you for ever Pacey) only gets 6 seasons but you roll One Tree Hill out for NINE?! How the absolute hell.
Baseball, Detroit Tigers, 2015 season: It’s that time of year again!
Commit this schedule to memory so you don’t accidentally interrupt my viewing. The Tigers are off to a strong start which means I’m in a REALLY good mood!
So there you go, ladies! What I’m watching. Pop up if you’ve got a recommendation or are also watching any of these!
