It’s no secret that I love a good teen show. Okay, admittedly they usually they need some vampires to totally pull me in. BUT, I also secretly love a good period drama. I watched The Tudors like a bazillion times, and not just for the hotness. (Okay, partly for the hotness.)
So, when I heard The CW was coming out with a new period drama of their own, REIGN, I had to know more! I watched the pilot and after the first five minutes of amazingness, I am hooked.
It’s Monday… we can’t get it together here at Casa de Harrington, and I feel like letting it all hang out on my blog.
So, you’ve been warned. :)
- Why is it that on a beautifully fantastic day where all I want to do is be outside– I have a sick kid and we have to spend the entire day INSIDE? Dude, it’s fantastic out there. *turns on yet another Disney Channel original series*
- How come my box of Cocoa Pebbles tells me that there’s a full serving of Vitamin D in it? Dude… I am having Cocoa Pebbles for breakfast…. Vitamin D is not my greatest concern.
- Speaking of Cocoa Pebbles. Why do people think that Cocoa Pebbles, Cocoa Crispies and Cocoa Puffs are all the same. They’re not people. Learn your chocolatey breakfast cereal, or we can’t be friends.*
Also, why are Fred and Barney still the spokespeople for this cereal? Are there even new Flinstones cartoons coming out? Do our kids know who they even are? Is this the only gig that Fred and Barney can get anymore? Poor guys.
- Speaking of Fred and Barney… anyone remember Captain Caveman? That was like the coolest show ever. Oh– maybe I can find a clip.
*I put a star there so you would think I was joking about that. I’m not.
The other day I air-popped some popcorn and sat down on my couch to watch a movie on my big ‘ol television, and I started to wonder… are people still going to movie theaters?
Is that still something people do, or do we instead sit at home with our surround sound, hd television, fancy tv stand that keeps all our nasty dvd players, video game consoles, etc. out of sight, and of COURSE our super sweet pause button.
You see, I think the pause button is what makes my couch beat the movie theater. Movies are long, I like to drink lemonade… and if I’m going to pay $11.00 a ticket, then the last thing I want to do is miss part of it while I run to the bathroom. You know the run, right? The backward pedal out of the movie theater, the quick sprint down the hall to find the ladies room, (Why is my theater always at the other end of the building?) and the lightning quick pee followed up by a hand washing so fast that you probably shouldn’t be sticking your hands back in that jumbo tub o popcorn you’re sharing with your man.
Well, that’s the thing… with the pause button you have none of that! AND– if you miss what some super important character said, and it’s more than obvious those two seconds are what the entire story’s pivoting on–then all you have to do is rewind it and watch it again!~
Oh, plus… if it’s really boring, you can always watch the latest episode of vampire diaries.
