Very random miscellaneous stuff

I watched the Grammy Awards off and on last night and thought, overall, it was a dreadfully awful production. I’m happy for Adele, even though I think the only song I’ve ever really listened to is “Rolling in the Deep” and it’s the percussion that sucks me in. And I adore Lady Antebellum, but I’m so tired of them winning every single thing. I got to see Jason Aldean, though, which makes it all good.

Once Upon A Time is still knocking my socks off. Such a brilliant show! I’d like to see Red’s backstory pretty soon.

We watched The River and we’re conflicted. On the surface it’s pretty stupid. But it got really creepy in the second half and we might give it another episode.

Survivor comes back Wednesday and The Amazing Race on Sunday! YES!

And Yours To Keep was an honorable mention for Funniest Romance in the AAR Annual Readers Poll!

    I abso adore Once Upon A Time, and Grimm for that matter. I am feeling about the same way regarding the River but I am giving it one more shot before knocking it off the watch list. Hubby didn’t even watch the 2nd hour he was so not impression but I want to give it some more time. I watch WAAAAYYYY too much TV when I should be writing anyway…

    I have recorded all the episodes of Once Upon a Time, but have yet to watch it. Think at this point I may just wait for the DVD set when it comes out in the fall.

    I adore Bruce Greenwood, but do not watch horror which is how they were describing The River.

    We didn’t watch Grimm, which was probably a mistake. (And I can’t jump in once a series starts.)

    But Once Upon A Time is probably one of the best television shows I’ve ever seen. And my husband thinks so, too. Great show!

    The first half of The River was fairly “meh”, but the second half definitely turned toward what I’d call horror.

    Well, if you have on demand and you get the chance DEFO check out Grimm. ORRRR netflix it when it’s done and on DVD. It is SO worth it. I love OUAT, but I like Grimm more.
