Viewed this Week (29)

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?
