What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!

 

It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons. 

 

DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs. 

 

Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it.

So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up? 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Did anyone see the preview for the final season of Downton Abbey? I will definitely miss this show.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

So - I started watching "The Affair".  It's a show on Showtime.  I read good reviews and I'm a big fan of Domic West.  Surely this would be good.

 

I watched a few episodes, but I have lost interest.  The bottomline - I didn't feel any chemistry between Dominic and the woman he has an affair with.  I can't remember any of the character names at the moment.  In fact, I thought the moments with Maura Tierney were so much more intimate and true.  I really like Maura anyway....

 

Dominic is good, as usual.  But he seemed a natural as the husband.  The character he played as the straying husband seemed a bit campy. 

 

So that is my 2c.  On to the next show.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I tried to get into this show as well. The jumping time and p.o.v made it difficult for it to flow. Or possibly the woman he cheated with I didn't care for. I too am a Maura fan. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I actually like the change in pov for a pure thriller.  But this was supposed to be an adult drama as well, and somehow the difference in their povs made me not care for the affair. It seemed disingenuous.  I didn't feel sympathy or empathy for either character....just boredom. 

 

I just didn't believe the affair.  It was so insipid and sterile.....and it felt forced.  Oddly, the intercation with Maura seemed so natural and loving. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I couldn't agree more, sterile and forced. Im all for a good adult drama. Open to any and all suggestions. I've been on a PBS kick lately.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I watch a lot of PBS as I watch a lot of British drama 🙂  Mostly on Netflix or Amazon video.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Oooo do tell! I use Netflix and Amazon too.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Doctor Who fans, don't forget, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) will be on tonight!  🙂

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I am on a backlog.  I am only in the second episode on this season.  Thanks for the heads up!

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Being mostly bedridden this week I've been binge watching Scandal, I've made it to Season 3

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

While it is terrible that you are stuck in bed (get better very soon!), I am VERY jealous you get to watch scandal from fresh.  I adore that show.  Such a good guilty pleasure.  

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Thanks! Yes I'm surprised it took me so long to get into it considering I'm addicted to every other Shonda Rhimes show. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I love the show on Food Network called Cupcake Wars. Also because I love to bake. LOL.

And I also (childish, I know) am SUPER excited for the new Charlie Brown Peanuts movie! I am  going to the theatres to see it! I love classics and the Peanuts altogether... My church is having a Thanksgiving party themed this new Charlie brown movie. LOL:D

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Walking Dead is back! Another favorite is Homeland.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Two of my favorites.  I have Walkimg Dead on DVR, can't wait to watch it. Sometimes I like to stack a few episodes so I can binge watch!  Did you see the preview on Showtime for Billions?  That looks like a good one too. It stars the actor who played Brody on Homeland. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Anyone seen Love & Mercy? It chronicles the brilliance and struggles of Brian Wilson, the lead singer of the Beach Boys. I watched it the other day and found it absolutely phenomenal.

 

Paul Dano is absolutely spectacular as the young Brian Wilson. John Cusack plays older Brian Wilson, Elizabeth Banks plays his love interest and Paul Giamatti plays his therapist. 

 

As someone who grew up with a lot of Beach Boys on the stereo, it actually felt like you were watching "Pet Sounds" being created and brought to life before your eyes. Just amazing. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I wanted to see this so badly when it came out, but things didn't work out. I'm glad to hear you liked it, and look forward to its appearance on Netflix.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I haven't even heard of it, but now I want to see it!

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

We don't have cable so I always feel so out of the loop on movies. I hadn't heard of it either and figured that had to have been a sign, but it actually got really good reviews. 

 

The parts with Cusack and Banks are a little generic, and I wish they had gone with smaller names for those roles, but Giamatti was fantastic and Paul Dano was outstanding. 

 

Highly recommend to anyone who likes the Beach Boys or likes music in general. I always thought of the Beachh Boys as fairly shallow, poppy, California surf music, but it's so much more than that. I really never even considered them to be contemporaries/competitors of The Beatles, but that's exactly what they were. 

 

And you know you're probably pretty good when Paul McCartney calls one of your songs (God Only Knows) the best song ever written. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Thanks for the info! I grew up hearing the Beach Boys on family trips as my parents really liked their music. I also grew up on and loved Wilson Phillips. Remember them?! That was one of my very first cassette tapes:)

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I was talking to my coworker about the movie and she dropped a Carnie Phillips on me! I feel like I knew the connection at one time, but it totally caught me off guard!
