Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Peak TV edition


There’s been a lot of talk lately about how there is too much quality television available currently. I kind of scoffed at that notion until recently, as I find myself unable to keep up with or try all the shows that I want to watch. Now, I watch a lot of TV – way more than your average bear – so when I am struggling to keep abreast of all the television options, there’s a legitimate overabundance. As it is now, I feel like some days that I am barely keeping me head above water on the shows that I do normally watch; my DVR is constantly hovering at the 40-50% mark and for someone with pop culture OCD like me, that is unheard of. I’m hoping that as some shows wrap up their seasons I’ll be able to catch up and branch out more, but I just don’t know if that’s going to happen. Right now, I have a very long list of shows that I want to watch and have just not been able to find the time for: Daredevil‘s second season, My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Hap and Leonard (the whole season is on my DVR), Bloodlines, Narcos, Catastrophe, Transparent, Outlander, The Knick, and probably many more that didn’t immediately come to mind. I blame Netflix for this – they are cranking out shows way too quickly. I need to take some time off from work just to get caught up. I’m even falling behind at the movies as well – I still haven’t seen Batman v Superman, though I don’t feel too badly about this as I’m sure I’m not going to like it. This is a nightmare. #firstworldproblems

So while I ponder how to be able to watch TV all day and still bring in a paycheck, get yourself caught up on some of the pop culture that you might have missed in the last week.
