New Tele and Books

October 28th, 2016 at 10:35 am

Not a new television, just new shows! I watch on my computer.

I like stupid sci fi (and smart sci fi, but there isn't as much of that).

I am currently watching:
- Timeless (I can watch on the NBC website) - time travel!
- Stitchers (I can watch on the freeform website) - mind-melding
- Class (bbc iplayer) - a Dr. Who spinoff - yay!!!

Read the Rivers of London series, by Ben Aaronovitch who was a writer for Dr. Who, and loved the series, but we had to buy a couple of books because our library only had a few books in the series (???makes no sense since you want to work your way through, right?).

That makes it sound like I watch a ton of tv, but I really don't - that's what I watch all week.

Also read my daughter's books - a series by Wendy Mass with some magical elements. It was a great series (starting with 11 Birthdays) if you have a tween girl.

And now... it's off to the gym to teach my Bodypump class. I film my video next week (terror + relief that it will soon be done).

What are you watching? Anything good? Do you like sci-fi, too? Or something else?

    You should give the names of the missing volumes to your library. They would probably be glad to fill in the spaces. Different people do the ordering in libraries, especially if there is a lot of turnover, so series often end up being ordered piecemeal. It's not intentional.

    I am enjoying the historical and time travel aspects to Timeless.

    I love Chicago Fire and Blue Bloods and tend to watch it on tv streamed through my iPad, so much more convenient as they play a bit late in the evening for me.

    Over summer I watch the British baking shows fascinated. I'd never heard of most of the desserts and only read/saw on Downton Abbey type series about a few items. DH is watching USA election discussionsUn, nearly hypnotized by opinions offered by talking heads. I think it's that facts and opinion don't meet.

    I believe all the libraries are linked, your library can likely order books you desire from other city libraries. If the series is available electronically, you can have them transmitted to your computer or electronic reader immediately.

    I was tempted to watch Timeless, but I was afraid that it would go the way of many other shows I started watching, fall in love with, and then ... cancel.
