Oh man. It’s been far too long since I’ve posted. School has been keeping me busy. So busy that I don’t have a lot of time to write this blog.
Beyond Therapy is going well so far. We’ve had a lot of great times while blocking and we are slowly but surely heading towards a great play. We have a great cast and a lot of great parts to the play right now.
In other news, I’m in four classes and they are all going well. They are all good classes for different reasons, whether they’re easy, fun, interesting, or just important information.
I’m also doing some good work at the Wildey Theater. I run lights and sound for live shows, or projectors for movies, or just grunt work loading in/out equipment. It’s a great job. Has easy days and not so easy days.
The new apartment is nice and quiet. I don’t see my roommates much, but that probably has more to do with the fact that I’m pretty much just there to sleep and on weekends. They’re pretty cool though.
Enough about me, TV shows are back! They are either coming back from the winter break or starting new seasons, depending on the show. I just finished season 2 of Justified. Justified is a great detective show with a twist. It takes place in Harlan County, Kentucky and follows Raylan Givens on his duties as a Marshall. The series starts with him shooting a criminal after he refuses to leave within the 24 hours that Raylan has given him. To avoid legal issues with this situation he gets transferred back to his roots in Harlan County. We get to see his reunions with people he knows, like an ex-girlfriend and an ex-lover, as well as a childhood friend who turns into a sort of anti-hero/foil to Raylan. This series is a pretty common format with just enough freshness to it that it keeps it interesting and fun. The show just started its third season and airs at 9c on Tuesdays on FX. Check it out!
My other favorites right now are House, How I Met Your Mother, Castle, Once Upon a Time, Fringe, Burn Notice, and The Big Bang Theory. I believe these are all starting back up. Not sure about Burn Notice.
Older TV shows that I’m watching/catching up on are Fawlty Towers and Misfits. Fawlty Towers needs to be watched by anyone who likes funny stuff and/or John Cleese as it is a hilarious series that follows John Cleese as a hotel owner/manager. I’m also working through Misfits. Another British show, but this is more like if Heroes were only about teenagers who get powers while doing community service.
Well that’s good for now. See you next time!
