There’s something no one tells you about having a baby. It is literally the best way to sit and binge-watch TV shows. THE BEST. I mean, it’s exhausting and you’re so tired some (most) days you can barely function, but in those early months when the baby just needs to be fed and cuddled endlessly all day long and all night long, you can sit on the couch, turn on Netflix, and watch episode after episode of a show while the baby feeds, or while it refuses to sleep anywhere but snuggled up on your chest. So even though you’re more tired than you’ve ever been in your entire life, you also have all this time to just sit and not do anything. So you might as well catch up on some TV, right?
My bub is six months old (WHAT), but I’m still managing to snag some decent couch time while I feed him and play with him on the floor when my older daughter is at kinder. Over the past couple of months I’ve discovered a few new shows, so I thought I’d pass on some recs to your guys. It’s really a public service announcement to better all of our lives.
Hey, hi, how are you? I’ve been AWOL, I know. It was unintentional and due to a number of things, mostly because we have been on and off the Winter cold, flu, and tonsillitis merry-go-round since about June. – Every cough and cold around has come home with my daughter, then she got a nasty… Continue reading ->
This dreary weather means we haven’t gone out much in the evenings on weekends. I mean, there’s also the four year old that requires baby sitting so that we can have a night out, but mostly it’s this freezing cold weather and rain that’s keeping us indoors. Luckily there’s been a bunch of good stuff… Continue reading ->
TV Freaks & Geeks I think I only saw the first three or so episodes of Paul Feig’s 1999 series that’s set in 1980. Judd Apatow served as a producer, so it’s no surprise that all his films from the last few years feature a few of the cast members. The show centres around Lindsay… Continue reading ->
BEEEETTTTTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! That basically sums up how I felt about the second last episode of Mad Men. I didn’t always like Betty Draper, but I did always think that she was a complicated and interesting juxtaposition to the women Don worked with. Watching her develop from a docile, well put together housewife to a mature, honest… Continue reading ->
We’re back! February slipped by in the blink of an eye and alas, there was no podcast. But it’s Autumn now, and that’s the perfect time to start looking at the year ahead and planning which movies TV shows, and books we need to make time to watch/read! Kimberley and I have interestingly different taste… Continue reading ->
Man, it’s been super quiet around here. Sorry folks! It’s just Christmas holidays have been nice and lazy, so I’ve been enjoying chilling out, reading, catching up on some TV and movies and spending time with the fam. Here’s a quick round up of what I’ve been doing! – The Princess Bride: This has been… Continue reading ->
Friday before last I went to a Melbourne Writers Festival session with Emily Nussbaum, the New York Times TV critic. It was a small session at ACMI, only about sixty or so people, and the topic was Desert Island Films, which is part of a series that ACMI does with well-known people where they come… Continue reading ->
I blitzed through season 2 of Orange is the New Black last week and man, I love this show. I love the mix of comedy and drama, the darkness of some of the characters right next to the light-hearted nature of others in the prison, the snippets of the guards’ private lives, the way nobody… Continue reading ->
Veep (Clip has a bit of colourful language, so NSFW-ish) I’m not a hugely political person. I don’t often watch shows that revolve around politics, I don’t engage in political debates, I don’t read a lot of political news articles. This is due to a number of reasons, reasons that are, I suspect, fairly boring,… Continue reading ->
