Today we watched a documentary about the Oscars, which was pretty enjoyable, some Nigella, and then the first episode of Beauty and the Beast with Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman. I vaguely remember watching it as a very wee child, and basically only remember how much I wanted Catherine and Vincent to kiss, so it was pretty fun to revisit that. Tomorrow I plan to get more writing done - I did a smidgen today - and maybe try to catch up a little on my backlog of TV.
The Americans! It's only got one season under its belt, but unlike a lot of first seasons, this was a show that knew what it was right out of the gate. Two undercover Russian agents in Washington D.C. in the early 80s. The Cold War, espionage, cons, costumes. Fake mustaches. And then there's like all this deep stuff about how it's like a ~cold war in their marriage. Perms. A really kicking soundtrack. These people are really attractive, like for real. And it just kept getting better and better, until the season finale, which was legit great television. I am super-excited to see it come back, so now's the perfect time to do a quick 13-episode binge and get caught up - and help keep this awesome show on the air!
