Being a movie buff is fun but difficult to see all the movies you want to while they are in theaters- particularly so many of the good ones out now in time for Oscar season. While I'm still desperately trying to see Into the Woods and Wild, I'm mourning the fact that I still have not seen Birdman, which I'm convinced that I will love, as well as The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything, and Foxcatcher. It's like I haven't seen anything! But I have. There are just a lot of great movies that happened this year.
Being a huge fan of TV is just as bad if not worse. I get hooked on so many shows- and not exclusive categories- I watch dramas, comedies, dramadies, horror, thriller, reality shows, crime shows, and I don't forget about mini-series either. I just got through watching series 7 of Doctor Who on Netflix, which I'll now continue to watch week-to-week now that I've caught up. It just adds so much more to DVR. Of course I would find a way to complain about television being so good right now. My list on Netflix has gotten dangerously long. I've added more shows to my arsenal this year, which I'll talk about in my next post. For this, I wanted to list the shows that I decided to stop recording and call it quits on. It's slightly depressing, but also brought relief because the shows that I drop make room for greater, better written shows.
Shows I've given up on this year:
Shows that are on thin ice this year:

While Craig sang country music, Matt sang alternative music that sometimes had a rock or songwriter edge that public connected to easily. I still don't understand why he didn't win. Get it together America! I don't want this to turn into a show where people vote for whoever is on Blake Shelton's team just because. Don't make this American Idol, vote for whose song you actually bought. So The Voice is now on thin ice while I wait for next season and for Matt to get the check tattoo when he finally gets signed by a label.
There you have it! What are the shows that you have dropped or considered dropping?
