Current Shows  
I don't know how it happened, but my latest TV show obsessions are actually current shows! This hasn't happened to me in such a long time. Generally, I pick up a show just as it ends or after its over and watch all the boxsets, but lately I've fallen for shows that are still airing! Here's the run-down...

Timeless - I know Season 1 is over in the US and just recently in the UK too, and there's no guarantee of renewal, but technically it is a current show and OMG it's SO GOOD! Loved the concept, loved the execution, love the actors, and the shallow part of me is salivating over Wyatt Logan every week! lol I really, really hope it gets a Season 2, not least because that last episode was such a cliffhanger!

Lethal Weapon - This one just finished in the US I think, and here in the UK we just had episode 5 of 18. I wasn't sure about it, because I'm not crazy about the movies but at the same time I like them enough that I wasn't sure they should be remade. Then came Clayne Crawford and his take on Martin Riggs. I love that guy. Can't help it, just do. Need to see more.

The Librarians - Unfortunately, I don't get the channel this airs on here in the UK so I have yet to see Season 3 which aired in the US in its entirety already; however, the DVDs will be available in a couple of weeks and I'm currently rewatching Season 2 to prepare me. I came for the Kane and stayed for everything else. Such an epic show!

Gilmore Girls - Yup, I'm counting this one. When I started watching this show, it was over. Seven seasons of boxset to enjoy, and enjoy I did, and then came the revival. Now this is technically a current show again, despite the fact I really did not enjoy A Year in the Life for the most part. It had so much potential and disappointed me so much, but man, I love me those 'classic' episodes from back in the day :)

Meanwhile, I have dropped two other current shows from my watching schedule - Once Upon A Time and The Big Bang Theory. I'm sorry but these two seem to have morphed into unrecognisable caracitures of their former awesome selves, and I'm afraid I'm done.

I loved Timeless !! My favorite new show of the year ! (Well, Legion, that just aired, was pretty good too)

Timeless is really a lot of fun. And you can tell they had fun themselves recreating all those eras. Also, it's educative !

And yes, Wyatt is easy on the eyes...

But boy was that clifhanger mean ! Aaaargh !

I know, right? I love that show! And you're right, it is educational as well. I never knew so much about US history :)

That cliffhanger was SO mean, and we don't even know yet if the show has been renewed! I really hope they do renew it. It cannot be left like that!!!
