Inspired by Ticket to Anywhere’s What I Watched, I post on Sundays about what movies and/or TV shows I watched the week before. Some weeks will be epic, and some weeks…won’t be. Let’s get to it!
Switched at Birth 1×30 – “Streets Noise Invaded the House”
New Girl 2×5 – “Models”
A bunch of The Office Season 2
Thoughts on What I Watched:
What a slow week for me!
The season finale of Switched at Birth felt fairly anticlimactic to me. While I think that they managed to cover a lot of ground, I didn’t feel anything when things ended badly between Chef Jeff and Daphne. I wanted to smack Regina for not taking a more active role in what was going on with Bay (this is an ongoing thing that feels very deliberate, but I want them to address it more). The one thing I loved was Emmett and Bay having a great moment near the end of the episode. That hinted at some promise there. Why am I such a fangirl when it comes to those two? I don’t know. What I do know is that I hope we’ve seen the last of Zara–at least for a good long while.
This week’s episode of New Girl was good but not great. I can’t figure out why I find CeCe’s roommate Nadia so funny and also kind of terrifying, but I do. I also loved the boob fight she and Jess got into. While I love Schmidt and Nick, I got a little tired of the fighting about their friendship. I still think this is an excellent show, though, and I look forward to it every week.
I’ve been rewatching The Office with someone who’s never seen it before, and it’s a lot of fun. He’s totally into it, and there’s something about experiencing a show again with someone who is seeing it for the first time. The second season (and third, I guess) is my favorite, so it’s fun to be seeing the episodes where the show was in its prime. I can’t wait to watch Casino Night, which might be my favorite episode ever.
What did you watch this week?
