For the Love of Fall TV

t’s officially fall, and you know what that means– football, boots, pumpkin everything… and new fall TV!  Yes, our favorite shows are returning for the season and I couldn’t be more excited about it.  Here’s what I’ll be watching this season:

Doctor Who – Doctor Who officially returned last weekend.  Like I said in my last weekend vlog, I haven’t watched the season premiere yet.  I was also playing around with the idea of posting about it here, but I’m not committed to that either… I will get around to watching, though!

Scream Queens – I live tweeted the premiere last night, and I can already tell you I’m loving this ridiculous show.  This is the only brand new series on my list.  Join me on twitter for the fun!

Plus all of Chanel's (Emma Roberts) outfits are amazing and I'm really glad I just bought that faux fur coat. Again, see vlog!

Nashville – Last year’s cliffhanger ending just about did me in.  I’m pretty sure Deacon’s not dead, but I’m anxious all the same.  Nashville returns tonight!  I’ve already got the episode DVR’ed.

AHS: Hotel – On to things that haven’t happened yet! American Horror Story’s newest season kicks off October 7th.  I might never recover from the lack of Jessica Lange, but I’m still up for it.

Walking Dead – I fell in love with this show last year just in time to watch the season wrap up.  I’ve been okay during the hiatus, but I’m so ready for The Walking Dead to come back!  October 11th for this one.

Manhattan – I can’t believe I haven’t talked about this show yet.  It’s a FANTASTIC piece of historical fiction about the Manhattan project that I watched on Hulu.  The second season is FINALLY premiering on October 13 on WGN America… sorry, but I’d never heard of that channel before.  I’ll be tuning in now, though!

MasterChef Junior – With MasterChef over, I can’t wait for more cooking competitions!  MasterChef Junior is even cuter than the adult version.  I’m interested to see the first time that Christina’s with the kids.  I still miss Joe, though.  We sadly have to wait until November 6th!

What are you watching this season?!

  • Blank Space – You all obviously know from yesterday’s post that I’m obsessed with Taylor Swift’s newest music video.  If for some reason you haven’t seen this masterpiece, watch it immediately.
  • Font for Dyslexics – Dyslexie is a typeface that makes things easier to read for people with Dyslexia.  I think this is phenomenal; anything that gets more people reading is so important.
  • Queen Bey – Beyoncé was a category on Jeopardy this week, and I’m proud to say that I could answer this whole column.  You try!  How’d you do?
  • Mindy & Stephen – I love when people I like like each other.  Stephen Colbert introduced Mindy Kaling at Glamour Magazine’s Woman of the Year this past week, and I love that too.
  • Justine & Aisha – I repeat, I love when people I like like each other!  iJustine posted a WCW a day early this week and posted a picture of her with Aisha Tyler.  I love these two woman and freaking love seeing them together.
  • Go Find Yourself – Since most of my content for today’s LFANW comes from Twitter, why not continue that trend?  Go ahead and check out #GG2D and/or Lisa Edelstein’s retweets of fans like myself showing support for the upcoming Bravo series “Girlfriends Guide to Divorce.”
  • Jessica Lange on Elsa – My obsession with Jessica Lange is unwavering.  E Online interviewed the American Horror Story star on her character, Elsa Mars.  I’m still hoping and praying that this is not her last season on AHS, because GOD she is perfection.
  • Speaking of which.  I literally love you, Jessica Lange.

  • David Tennant’s Face –  I’m usually crushing on ladies more than men, but the big exception of my twenties has been David Tennant, specifically as the 10th Doctor.  This weekend, I started watching Gracepoint to deepen my obsession.  This quiz asks if you can pick the Doctor Who episode on DT’s face alone… and, perhaps sadly, I could.
  • Embracing the Basic – What does it mean to be basic in Boston?  This Boston.com list will tell you, and even encourages that it might actually be cool to be basic.  With the likes of Lululemon yoga pants, tweeting at the MBTA, Alex and Ani bangles, Hunter wellies, everything pumpkin spice, and leaf-peeping on this list… I’d say I’m a shoe-in.
  • Jessica Lange singing Lana del Rey – because I want you all to know that I’m still too obsessed with this moment that I already blogged about which occurred over a week ago.
  • Vital Donut Updates – Eater Boston, the most important blog I read, has a collected stream of donut-related news.  Since I’m dubbing 2014, the Year of the Donut for me, this is especially relevant.  If you’re not a Bostonian, check out if Eater has a blog for your city!
  • Intervention Ware – You know you’re old when you want to buy plates for fun and/or decorative reasons.  Fishs Eddy’s “Intervention Ware” is an honest china pattern that cracks me up.
  • Paris & New York – This split screen time-lapse captures similarities and differences between Paris and New York.  Paris is one of my favorite cities, and seeing it side by side with New York seems to make New York a bit more magical.
  • Grace Helbig is my spirit animal – Buzzfeed has Grace answer some important questions, and goodness is she perfect.

Gods and Monsters

Hi guys!  I’m away for the weekend but I promise I’ll have a real post for you Monday.  Until then, I wanted to share my favorite thing in the world.

Jessica Lange’s Lana Del Rey cover is literally the most perfect thing I’ve ever seen or heard.  I love this clip from American Horror Story: Freak Show than anything I’ve seen from the season so far.  I love watching Jessica Lange sing “Gods and Monsters” even more than I love watching her smoke cigarettes.

And that’s saying something.

Jessica Freakin’ Lange

Last week marked American Horror Story’s season 4 premiere.  You guys might have figured this out about me, but I’m super lazy and fall very quickly behind with current television.  I’m impatient and lazy, which is why binge-watching is my thing.  Without this blog to hold me accountable, some amazing shows get dropped.  Well, that’s what happened with American Horror Story last season.

After watching Freak Show last week, I knew I HAD to finished Coven.  Honestly, Coven spoke to me more than any other season.  Witchcraft has always interested me and I’m always drawn to it as a theme.  The fashion completely inspired me as well– all black everything!  I love the aesthetic of the whole season, and I can confidently call it my favorite.  The best thing about Coven, and any season of American Horror story is the fabulous Jessica Lange.

If I hadn’t already had a Wednesday post this week, it would’ve been Woman Crush Wednesday: Jessica Lange.  I could literally watch this woman smoke a cigarette for the rest of my life.

Good god this woman is so freaking sexy!  She plays her roles with such presence– we see her as an incredibly powerful character, and with such genuine vulnerability in each of her AHS roles.  This is especially true of Fiona Goode in Coven– supremely powerful, but sick and dying, and of Elsa Mars in Freak Show– in charge, but tragic.

I’m absolutely in love with Jessica Lange, and I can only hope she changes her mind and chooses to continue American Horror Story.  I don’t know if I want to watch this show without her.

Anyway, this is a great show to watch for the Halloween season!  Let this serve as my first installment of the Countdown to Halloween.

What’s your favorite AHS season?

What do you think of Freak Show so far?

 

Though Freak Show is not one of the shows I’m recapping this season, I’ll be doing my best to keep up!  That being said, there will be a couple weeks that are TV recap heavy coming up.  Stay tuned to see what new shows will appear on this blog!
