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 1×29 – “The Trial”
Nashville 1×1-1×2 – “Pilot” and “I Can’t Help it (If I’m Still in Love With You)”
Thoughts on What I Watched:
It was a slow week for me, viewing-wise, in part because I was super busy (though that hasn’t necessarily stopped me before) and in part because there wasn’t a lot on.
I’m not going to lie, I didn’t love this week’s episode of Switched at Birth. The legal stuff about the hospital and the switch has always been one of the least interesting aspects of the show, so having one in which much of the focus was on the trial was kind of a snoozer. I like every scene with Toby and Emmett (the two have really good chemistry), and while I don’t care about the blonde Christian girl Toby’s interested in, at least he’s getting way, way more screen time. I’d be happy to see Zara shuffle off this mortal coil, but with Bay moving into her trailer (?), I don’t think that’s happening.
Nashville is something I’m still really unsure of. I know I’m not the only one watching because I love Connie Britton so much, but I also can’t be the only one who has been entirely underwhelmed by it so far. I have a secret love-hate relationship with Hayden Panetierre (is it weird that when she’s onscreen as Juliette I call her Taylor Swift in my head?), and so it’s fun to watch her bitch it up on the show. I also love how she’s sleeping with, like, everyone. But the show’s political subplot is boring, boring, boring. Please give me more of Britton’s daughters on the show–Lennon and Maisy.
That’s pretty much it this week. What did you watch?
