Last month, I forced my boyfriend to participate in a blog post, and I don’t know about the rest of you, but I felt he wasn’t super into it. But because Mich and I like to do as little work as possible, we decided to keep pushing him. Low and behold when it came to this post, he surprised me with proper answers. So for your enjoyment, I present to you—the boyf in all his TV watching wisdom.
E: We actually started watching Sherlock on our first date. I’ve already seen it multiple times so obviously I love it, but I forced the boyf to watch it. We watched two episodes that day and haven’t picked it up since then…
B: I feel there was a lot of thought and effort put into each scene, well plotted out to show the attention to detail and even if you are trying to be Sherlock yourself you won’t notice it. Like in the first episode, when Watson met Sherlock just from that little encounter with what Sherlock noticed I was paying so much more attention trying to notice things myself.
E: Doctor Who is one of my all-time favourite shows, up until midway through Matt Smith’s run. This is the show that transformed into a full on nerd, so it’s really important to me. I made the boyf watch it from Christopher Eccleston’s run, and we only made it through episode one.
B: This is a show I had heard about obviously on occasion being a partial nerd and had always considered watching it. Ely, as lovely as she is, wanted to introduce me to the showing knowing very well that I am not a huge fan of mannequins (I do find them creepy) and the first episode had murderous mannequins. It wasn’t too bad I was under the impression before watching it that the budget would have been bigger and it’s clear it wasn’t a big budget but I can on occasion find the attempts of the low budget shows amusing and surprising what they can do with little funds. I’m definitely not hooked on the show yet but I’m happy to keep watching if accompanied by Ely’s cuddles.
E: I’ve never seen any of the Mentalist, so this was a new experience for me. It’s been on my list for a while, and I really enjoyed what we watched. It feels very Castle-like to me—the brilliant but arrogant guy helping the female detective solve crimes?
B: I remember watching this when I was growing up and I was intrigued by the cleverness of the show and it is a good show with some smart plot twists don’t get me wrong, but since watching Sherlock and other crime shows I’m really only finding the attractive feature for this show is the acting which I think is done well and also the random encounters with series villain but this only pops up now and then, almost not enough to keep my interest.
E: I love Bones. I’ve seen up to season 9, and it’s one of my favourites. Admittedly, season 1 isn’t the best season in my opinion but it’s worth sticking with.
B: Bones is the tv show you get when you throw a bunch of different characters into one team to solve murders. Every character is portrayed very well, the acting is well done and the idea of each of the personalities is great. Each episode has a hooking murder and little twists as well as progression of the main characters. Watch the show on DVD you load in and see the title of the episode “man in a tree” just leaves you to wonder what’s going to happen and how will they solve the mystery. Well done, always different and I plan to keep watching.
Are you all as proud of him as I am? All jokes aside, I am very lucky that the boyf is so willing to support me with this blog, so thank you! As for the rest of you, I hope you enjoyed hearing what he thinks and we’ll be back next month with another post from him!
