I've spent most my life watching blessed little television. Most years, I had one or two programs I watched. Some years, I had none, other than "The Simpsons," which was ritual, honestly. Something changed about three years ago. All of a sudden, there was good programming. Lots of it. I've become a TV watcher, embarrassingly enough, and now that I am waiting out a gap between seasons, I find myself with hours to fill. Strange... I'm sure I had hobbies or something at one point. What was I doing?

I'm the opposite. I used to watch a lot of tv and now... I watch zero.

But I really just wanted to comment and say that ridiculously-unobservant-me never noticed that little mouse in the corner of the desk.

Oh my word, yes. It is the most smartly-written drama I've ever watched. We'll be watching and think, "He can't do X! Y would happen!" And then Y does happen. I can't tell you how many times Kris and I would wonder out loud about an apparent plot hole, and not two seconds later, the protagonist asks about it. It's like he heard us.

It's the first time I've watched a show where I am both rooting for the protagonist and the man who is chasing him. It has one of the most frightening, reptilian antagonists I've ever seen. And it respects the science. Yes, our protagonist does bad things. Yes, we watch him morph (realistically) into what could be called evil. But the science didn't do it. This is not an anti-science tale. It's almost a love letter to chemistry, and I adore it.

It's weird. I hear about all this TV that's supposed to be good, but I never actually bother to watch it. I watched the first episode of Breaking Bad maybe 6 weeks ago, wasn't particularly interested in it. I refuse to watch Game of Thrones until I've reads the books (and I do actually have the first book, I just have to read it.)

Mad Men is a show that everyone tells me I'd like. It was another show where I watched the first episode and wasn't interested enough to watch more.

It probably also helps that I don't have cable or anything. I _can't_ watch most stuff on TV.

Ironically, more than a few human readers are pining away waiting for the new season of My Little Pony... Poor Minty.

In the meanwhile, Make Your Own Pony!

You have to upload your own cutie mark, which is a little bit of a bummer, but the customizations are nigh-endless!!

xD Maybe she should rewatch some old seasons, or something.
