If Media Controlled My Life…Wait, Maybe It Does

If Media Controlled My Life…Wait, Maybe It Does

Hi there!  I use this space to talk about fitness, healthy living and much more but I don’t often talk about sitting around doing nothing.  I mean, who wants to read about that!?  But the truth is, I do spend at least some of my time sitting around doing a whole bunch of nothing.  And by nothing, I mean watching TV or movies or reading because let’s be honest, actually doing nothing is really boring. 

Real Housewives.  Need I say more?

Ok, so as you may or may not know, fall TV is starting up TONIGHT!  Holy cow, yes!  Here are a few that I’m really excited for:

Fall TV Collage

(Sources- and

1.)    Grey’s Anatomy

2.)    Scandal!

3.)    Parenthood

4.)    Parks and Rec

5.)    The Good Wife

6.)    Revenge (hoping Season 3 is as good as Season 1 and we can just not talk about Season 2)

7.)    Thinking of maybe trying Betrayal?

Now, it’s YOUR Turn!  What’s your favorite fall TV show?  Or what are you most excited for?

Of course fall tv doesn’t include some of my favorite series!  Here’s a few that I can marathon through no problem:

series Collage

1.)    Breaking Bad- NO spoilers!  I did not see this past Sunday’s episode (not allowed to watch when Hubs is not here) but two weeks ago was EPIC!

2.)    Homeland- Just downloaded Season 2 on iTunes because we don’t get Showtime.  Am already half way through.

3.)    Downton Abbey

4.)    Mad Men

5.)    The Bridge- This one is new and my mom got the Hubs and I hooked. 

Your TURN again.  What are your favorite TV series?

Of course the disappointing thing about TV shows is that you constantly have to wait until the next episode for a resolution…Will Olivia and Fitz ever really be together?  Is Matthew Crowley still alive?  Will anyone ever find Dr. Weber in the basement?  Will Walt ever be caught!?  These burning questions take weeks, months, even years to answer!  So, sometimes it’s nice to sit down and have everything presented to you and wrapped up in one two hour time block.  I’m talking movies here people!  A few that I’ve seen recently:

1.)    The Great Gatsby- Perfectly timed for my 20s themed party!  I loved this and the soundtrack is great.

So I was going to make this whole list and then I realized that I’ve seen basically nothing in the past few months that I really enjoyed.  How depressing is that?  I am really excited to see some movies yet to be released On Demand:

1.)    Despicable Me Too

2.)    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2- This is only just coming to theaters but I read about it over on Nellie’s blog and it sounds really good.

3.)    The Butler

Hmmm, I guess Hollywood is really taking some time off this year, no?

What movies have you seen recently that you enjoyed?  What are you looking forward to seeing soon? 

Also, the winner of the OOFOS giveaway is ….


I am always in flip flops and wondering later in the day why my feet and back are killing me, these would be a great pair of shoes to own!

    The New Girl! And DA and Homeland 🙂 I’ve actually drastically cut down on my TV but my Mom keeps me up to date on all things Housewives since she’s obsessed!

    I don’t watch a lot of TV. We don’t even pay for cable. I do watch Bones though. I just find that between blogging and work I just don’t have time for TV.

    As a fellow health blogger, I shouldn’t confess this, but I love my TV shows. FALL IS THE BEST :).

    Revenge, Scandal, Homeland and my recently new love, The New Girl!! Seriously, I’ll watch it at home by myself and just start laugh crying its so funny.

    I only watch three shows religiously….Game of Thrones, The Newsroom and Big Bang Theory….all totally different. I just don’t have the time to get into more shows and I stress myself out when I don’t get to watch them.

    We saw Despicable Me 2, as well. Ben LOVES animated movies…such a kid :). Star Trek was also awesome (Chris Pine, drool). Happy Fall!

    Your fall list is great! Scandal, The Goodwife, Shark Tank (I know that’s real life, but I love it), Revenge, Law & Order SVU, Grey’s Anatomy, return of Covert Affairs.

    Really hoping to the the Butler next week when I’m off. It just hasn’t worked out my last 2 off weeks. I’m taking my protigee to see Baggage Claim and I want to see The Family! I will give the theater a lot of money next week 🙂

    Nothing wrong with doing “nothing’! I do it frequently!!!

    My husband and I watch way too much TV! We love Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory (gotta represent CalTech!), New Girl, The Mindy Project, Parks and Rec, Two Broke Girls, The Voice, and Breaking Bad. My absolute favorite TV series was Veronica Mars! I even contributed to the kickstarter for the movie! 🙂

    So many shows, so little time!!! Love New Girl, Revenge, Parenthood and can not wait for Breaking Bad!!! No spoilers but you MUST watch last week so you can see the finale! I actually bought an “I heart Pinkman” t-shirt. Yep, I did. Once it’s over I want to get into Homeland. I always hear how great it is but there’s only so many shows I can be addicted to at once!!

      OMG! I tried to reply to the email notification I got when you posted this comment! Haha! I can’t wait to watch Breaking Bad!! Hubs comes home tomorrow so hopefully soon. I saw the shirt on Instagram and it was AMAZING!

    congrats Morgan!!

    I love Scandal and GIRL revenge season two was SO BAD. My husband and I talk about it all the time. I hope there is somewhere they can go now that Jack knows. Season 2 was just AWFUL.

    My obsession for grey’s is epic. I can’t watch it live, or when anyone is around. It is my personal treat! 🙂

    I also love Grey’s Anatomy and Parenthood, and also am a fan of New Girl — Zooey Deschanel is so cute! I’ve also watched Law & Order SVU for years, but have learned that if I watch it right before I go to sleep, I have crazy nightmares haha. I came back from my Euro trip and have all of these DVRed episodes I didn’t even realize were coming back on air. Sweetness!

    I’m so excited I can barely contain myself! I am looking forward to ABC’s “Revenge” and “Scandal”. Since Betrayal comes on right after Revenge, I am going to check out the series premier tonight. It looks really interesting!
