I say “unfortunately” because I much prefer not being obsessed with a television show. During its hiatus, I’d lost my obsession with Outlander. That always makes me happy because it makes life much more normal. But the show returned this past week, and after just one episode, I find I’m immersing myself in the videos, chats, and podcasts I’d come to know last year.
The Frasers arrive in France.
You may realize I haven’t been excited enough about this season’s television shows to write about them. I still watch the same shows, The Flash, iZombie, Agents of SHIELD, Arrow, and Supernatural , but I’ve taken to deleting episodes immediately after I’ve watched them. The one exception is Supernatural, of which I still have nine episodes on my DVR to rewatch. (And yet I haven’t rewatched them.)
I know I’m in trouble with Outlander because yesterday I charged up my wireless headphone and earbuds in order to listen to various podcasts with freedom of movement. But I knew I was really in trouble when my Outlander thoughts kept me from falling asleep.
I’d just seen an interview with Sam Heughan being asked if he could take away one prop from season 2, which would it be. He replied, “The bump.” (If you don’t know what he’s taking about, watch the Starz offical season 2 trailer.) That got me thinking about which props I’d want to have; and I started going through each episodes, one by one, trying to decide which prop I’d take. I’ve made a list, but you’ll have to wait until next time.
Also next time? What I liked and didn’t like about Outlander‘s season 2 premiere. And then, maybe, those Supernatural episodes waiting to be rewatched.
