I am leaving for New Zealand soon. This means that I have to finish the knitted blanket I started for my parents last November (I am almost done though!). Since I am mostly packed and only working intensely in the mornings and early afternoons, I am spending a lot of time sitting in front of a television and knitting. Here is what I have been watching in the meantime.
The sixth season is airing on Masterpiece Theater on PBS, and Mom recently purchased the Blu-rays of seasons 4 and 5, so my late afternoons and evenings were spent with a cup of cooling tea and rich British people complaining about the changes in their society.
Late at night, I have mastered the art of knitting while watching subtitled anime. I have seen five episodes of this show but I do not think I will continue with it. The opening episodes were plot-heavy but then it turned into fluff and I am not amused by fluff in anime. Ah, well.
Superhero entertainment at its finest. There are some crossovers with Arrow, which I may have gotten more out of if I actually enjoyed Arrow to watch more than the pilot. But The Flash is great. I love the humor and the pseudo-science and the creepy doctor running S.T.A.R. Labs. Highly recommended for a good time.
Only a few episodes are out, and this how is mostly background noise, but it is high quality background noise. I am not sure how I will watch when I finally go abroad, but I will find a way. Kiwis pirate stuff from the States all the time, right?
The animation is awesome and the art style is crazy and very Halloween. Definitely something that will keep me entertained for a long period of time. Another one of those “magically knits while reading subtitles” shows. Also does not have a lot of fan service (according to what I saw in the first episode), which is always a plus in anime.
