oh, the weather outside is frightful

A lot of people have written a lot of things about Sleepy Hollow's second season, and I feel a bit like one tiny bee in a hive mind right now. Yes, the second season was weak. Yes, the writing for Katrina and Henry weighed the show down. Yes, the addition of Hawley was unnecessary. Yes, everything about the ownership of Frank Irving's soul was ridiculous even by this show's standards. So now we have a clean slate? Hm.

Katrina was actually semi-interesting as an evil antagonist. But I won't miss her. Assuming there's a third season, I'll give it a try. But if the show doesn't get renewed, well... I won't be crying over it. And the writers for the majority of season two have only themselves to blame.

So with bad weather, I ended up watching Broadchurch season one on Netflix. I loved the two leads, Miller and Hardy, played by Olivia Colman and David Tennant. But as soon as I realized where the show was heading for its resolution, I was disappointed. And right, unfortunately. Everything has to have its dark underbelly in this show's universe. While I thought the final episode was very effective in finishing out the story--I cried more than once--I can't see myself wanting to delve into that world again. Which is what the second season apparently does. As much as I like Miller and Hardy, I don't want to see them in constant pain while the fallout continues.

Daybreak brought the third season of The Great British Sewing Bee to my attention, so I'll probably dive into that next. Already watched the first episode, in fact; it was posted on youtube, so check there first, if you're interested.

Time to figure out something healthy-ish for dinner. Handfuls of almonds, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips probably don't fit that bill.

Heee, I just finished watching the second season of Broadchurch, and I can confirm. Don't watch it. It's horrible (and not just because they piled even more angst on everyone--it's also boring, frustrating, and I pretty much wanted to kill every single one of the characters. Which is too bad, because I ended season 1 liking almost everyone).

(Cranberries are healthy. So are almond. And dark chocolate isn't bad for the health either. Just saying. Hm.)
