Couch Potato Season
by Barbara Early
As the summer has swirled away, all too quickly, couch potato season is just warming up. Football has begun, hockey is coming, and all those new fall shows are airing. Here’s my review of the season so far. (With a warning. Writers watch TV differently.)
Still, I guess they raised the stakes and complicated the path to the altar, only will fans be patient enough to wait until these two work it out?
And some new additions:
Scorpion: Meh. I’ll check it out again, but the whole dysfunctional genius thing only works for me when I fall in love with the characters. Haven’t done that yet. I will give it a chance, though.
How to Get Away with Murder: I will not watch this show. They lost me with the promo where the main character said she didn’t care whether her clients were guilty or innocent. I do care. And I find this kind of pragmatism a bit scary.
That’s my rundown. What’s caught your attention?
Barbara Early grew up buried in the snowy suburbs of Buffalo, NY, where she developed a love for all things sedentary: reading, writing, classic movies, and Scrabble. She holds a degree in Electrical Engineering, but her penchant for the creative caused her to run away screaming from the pocket-protector set. Barbara cooks up cozy mysteries with a healthy dose of comedy and sometimes a splash of romance. Her holiday novella, Gold, Frankincense, and Murder was released in e-book and audio format from White Rose Publishing. Barbara also writes as Beverly Allen, and her debut cozy mystery novel, Bloom and Doom, was released in April 2014 from Berkley Prime Crime.
