Hello humans! And androids, I guess, who knows. You reading this out loud to your animals? Hello to them, too!
I’m here to talk to you about my favorite topic: TV. Fall is in full swing and the holidays are upon us, meaning a lot of shows are a few weeks away from their mid-season break. Around this time of year is when I start assessing the shows I’m watching: How are the new shows doing? Are there any that you should be letting go? (I always give a show a few weeks to sort their shit out, but if they haven’t gotten it together by now, they probably never will.) What about returning shows? How are their new seasons doing? Any shows you’re clinging to only for nostalgia sake that probably you should ditch in the new year? What are some Netflix shows you’ve watched that you’d recommend people binge while trying to hide from their families over the holidays?
I’ll be honest with you, I’m dreading this holiday season more than usual. I lost my grandfather earlier this year, and we haven’t had any family gatherings since. Our Thanksgiving is going to be small this year, just my parents, my brother, and my Nana, so his empty chair will be extra noticeable. And so I’m coping with TV! It’s what I always do. I’m already planning a rewatch of The Haunting of Hill House with my brother, and I can’t wait to force my father to tell me every thought he’s ever had about this season of Legends of Tomorrow.

Also I don’t even know what category to put Riverdale because that shit is beyond bonkers but I still want to talk about it with you. What are you watching, what are you loving, what are you quitting, tell me all of your feelings about every show that’s airing. (And of course, as always, any topic is fair game for the comments!)
