This month has been ALL about Son’s of Anarchy; on the recommendation of a friend we started watching and are now well into series 2 after hungrily watching a few episodes every evening. It’s quite a violent show and difficult to watch at times, yet it has still captured and held my interest.
I am even starting to slowly warm to some of the characters and sympathise with their challenges keeping the innocents of Charming safe. The Son’s of Anarchy are big on revenge which helps me handle most of the upsetting storylines, they like to put things right even if at times you think the odds are stacked completely against them. When justice is served you get a huge sense of satisfaction. I would say though not to get too attached to the characters because sadly not all are set to stay (hubbie is still grumbling about the loss of one in particular!), with 5 more series to go I am sure lots more will change as we navigate our way through the plot. If I am honest it’s been novel having a break from vampires, werewolves and witches and focus on some gritty real life issues!
I also did try an episode of Reign as my friend said one of the characters was quite dishy and I should look out for him, I have a feeling I will be watching more as I love period shows and the first episode immediately caught my attention, although the foaming at the mouth nun getting poisoned was not an ideal start when eating my dinner! My hubbie rolled his eyes, he is happy for biker gang wars but not for the goings on in a royal court… but during the day I am sure I can squeeze an indulgent episode in before he comes home from work and the boys return from school, some me time for a change instead of juggling just the blogging and housework. All my friends have Netflix so its quite social for us discussing the latest shows we have seen and recommending the next one each should watch.
The boys have had a busy month of Netflix viewing too; they started watching the new Mr. Peabody & Sherman show. As fans of the film they were excited to see a series of episodes to watch. The chat show is a bit manic though with random visitors dropping in whilst Mr. Peabody tries his best to present the content, including a giant baby stealing the show, his neighbour wanting to sing and others just wanting to see what all the fuss is about but managing to get in the way regardless! I think my two enjoyed the chaos and the time travel thrown in amongst it all. It has kept them quieter of a morning, which is lovely as usually the bickering starts quite early on…
They finished Super 4 the Playmobil animated show, they both liked this and whizzed through the episodes. The motley crew of a fairy, pirate, spy and knight face all manner of adventures and have to work together to help save the day! Each of them has their own skill set and the boys liked seeing how they would tackle their next villain.
