Winter + Newborn + Breastfeeding = TV TIME
Ok I’ve read some magazines and books too but when you’ve got minimal sleep delving into American Pastoral (which I stupidly tried to do) is not happening. So TV it is.
Here are my picks:
City Ballet on AOL – Holy hell is ballet hard. These short little clips give a fascinating glimpse into the life of a dancer which is just so intense.
Grey’s Anatomy – I’ve watched so much of these, these peeps feel like my friends (sad, I know). Christina & Meredith, poor old Torres always getting screwed over and puppy eyes McDreamy. OK season 7 seems to be reaching for straws a bit, but it’s pretty darn good. Don’t know why I stopped watching after Denny died (when it seems most other people stopped watching too).
The Mind of a Chef – Basically the mind of Momofuku’s David Chang narrated by Anthony Beaudoin. This is pretty fascinating but there’s something about Chang that holds me back a bit. I think he’s just into food in a next level that I will perhaps never fully appreciate or the way he talks or something. I mean, I love him, but I don’t think we’d be BFF’s.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – I loved this mostly for the dreamy landscapes. I’ve always been a scandi fan (Norwegian roots, a year spent in Denmark) and the views of Iceland and Greenland are fantastic. Plus it’s a sweet storyline.
Pramface – Always a fan of British Television (it’s just that bit much more raw & honest) I liked Pramface.. prob because I could laugh at these two and their baby woes as I am going through the same.. minus the one night stand and teenage pregnancy thing that is.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine – I first found these characters completely obnoxious and annoying but they grew on me. Even the whole tie and hoodie ensemble.
Somm – Even if you aren’t into wine this completely engrossing documentary about a bunch of geeky wine nerds trying to pass their Master Sommelier test is pretty darn amazing. A test of the human brain.
Good Ol’ Freda – A documentary about Freda Kelly who was The Beatles secretary throughout their entire career. It’s a fascinating story about an unpretentious woman with a lot of stories and honesty.
Is there anything I’m missing?!
