Another year has gone by and I figured I’d post a little summary of the things my wife and I have watched this year.check all the stats!
If you follow this blog, you know I watch quite a bit of TV series. My wife and I watch a lot of science-fiction but sometimes we need something different; you can’t just watch one post-apocalyptic series after another, you need something a bit more positive and less dark from time to time. :)
This Is Us is perfect for that.
Do you watch a lot of movies or TV Shows? Do you have a WordPress site? You will love Traktivity!
This plugin allows you to log everything you watch inside your WordPress site. You may then use that data for anything you want.
You could display the last few shows you watched in a widget in your sidebar, you could automatically post on Facebook or Twitter whenever you are watching something, or you could just keep that data to find out more about the genres you watch the most, or how many hours you spent in front of the TV last month or last year.
Most importantly, that data is yours, saved in your WordPress site for good.

I can’t seem to stop posting about Marvel movies and shows lately :) ABC has so far been successful with its two tie-ins to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. and Marvel’s Agent Carter. It’s only natural for them to keep at it, this time with more superheroes!
I’m a Marvel fan. I read Strange as a kid, I’ve watched all the MCU movies, the Marvel shows on ABC (Agent Carter, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and all the Marvel shows on Netflix. Even before Iron Fist’s release date was announced, I knew I’d be watching it as soon as it came out.
It’s been out for a few months now; I think spoilers are fine now so it’s time for a quick review! If you haven’t watched it yet be warned: spoilers ahead!
The Good Wife was one of my favourite TV shows. I liked the characters, the “case of the week”, the backstory, the little touches of humour here and there. When CBS announced that they were launching a spinoff, I was obviously very curious. As it turns out, they did a pretty good job with The Good Fight.
After Continuum, here is another Canadian show about time travel. And it’s available on Netflix!
This is another interesting twist on time travel, and they’ve managed to make me interested in all 5 main characters. That doesn’t happen very often! I found myself liking all of them, and really fearing that one of them would just be a victim of the storyline.
If you’re looking for something to binge watch, and if you like Science fiction, consider Travelers: you’ll go through the 12 episodes and ask for me, I guarantee it!
TV has changed a lot over the past 15 years. Shows are different, how we watch TV is different. 15 years ago, bingeing wasn’t a thing; very few shows had a real storyline, and the budget of prime time TV shows in general was quite low. There was HBO of course, but series like The Wire were the exception, not the norm. And then things changed. A few shows are directly responsible for making serialized TV series a thing. I think my generation will always remember Lost and 24, 2 of the first big shows that introduced us to good storytelling on TV. I personally became addicted to TV with 2 other shows: Heroes and Prison Break. I got hooked to TV with those 2 shows. And now, after 7 years, Prison Break is back!
