Monday. Another busy day and start of a week for me.
Today there are so many tv shows on that my Grandpa Ed and I have to switch our TV mode from cable to tv to watch all of them. We have two shows being recorded at the same time from 8pm to 11pm. So in order to watch 2 other shows (Crazy Ex Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin) we have to watch them live on tv mode.
And now another show for us on Monday. The much anticipated show (for my Grandpa and I at least), Supergirl. My Grandpa and I really liked the show. When the movie with Helen Slater came out in 1984, I thought at the time, finally a Kick-But Superpower Heroine. But then the movie turned out to be just ok. Not great, let alone the fabulous-ness I was hoping for.
And now almost 30 years later, they finally have it right with this Supergirl tv show. In my opinion (IMO) at least. And I am saving the dvr recording to show my 5 year old niece tomorrow. I’ll be fast forwarding some of the show, but she’ll get the idea of it and I have a feeling will like it as much as my Grandpa and I do.
One thing about the show that we noticed was that the S symbol is backwards from the family symbol. But then so is Superman’s S too. And nice touch having Helen Slater and Dean Cane acting as the adoptive parents.
And so naturally all these shows has kept me from reading tonight. I’m still reading a ton here. My reading list still looks like this…
➡ Northanger Abbey (The Austen Project: Book 2) by Val McDermid
➡ Macbeth by William Shakespeare
➡ A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
➡ Lords of Salem by Rob Zombie and B. K. Evenson
➡ Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie
So I’ll have to get cracking on some of those tonight as I try to get my body to go to sleep (somewhat insomnia probably). Hopefully I can get one of the books done tonight.
