things i’ve been meaning to blog about, watch it edition: fall movies & new tv series

After I started a job in Columbus, life got very hectic and I took an unplanned break from this blog. Since leaving that job and moving again, I’ve returned and recommitted to regularly blogging at Beagle & Bear. Part of that returns includes a blog series called “Things I’ve Been Meaning to Blog About,” which is made up of posts I intended to publish in summer or early fall but haven’t yet. This post is the last of that series.









Movie: 50/50 (pictured above)
Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★
See it if you enjoy: laughing and crying at the same time, taking a stand, friendship, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, and Anna Kendrick.

Movie: Moneyball
Rating*: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
See it if you enjoy: baseball, rooting for the underdog, true stories, and Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

Did you see either of these films? What did you think?






TV Show: 2 Broke Girls (pictured above)
Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★
Watch it if you enjoy: strong female characters, non-stop jokes, New York City, and Kat Dennings, Beth Behrs, and Nick Zano.
TV Show: New Girl
Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★
Watch it if you enjoy: the movie No Strings Attached (the creator of the show also wrote that film), close male-female friendships, stories about roommates, and Zooey Deschanel, Jake M. Johnson, Max Greenfield, and Lamorne Morris.





TV Show:
Up All Night (pictured above)
Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★
Watch it if you enjoy: comedic looks at parenthood and marriage, shows like The Office or Parks and Recreation, characters with ridiculous egos, and Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, and Maya Rudolph.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
Watch it if you enjoy: family-oriented sitcoms, issues and antics between sisters, the Midwest, and Tim Allen, Nancy Travis, and Hector Elizondo. (Note: I probably wouldn’t watch this show if I wasn’t home on Tuesday nights and had cable, but I’m glad I do! It brings me back to the glory days of Home Improvement without being exactly the same thing).

TV Show: Pan Am (pictured above)

Watch it if you enjoy: anything to do with the 1960s, drama that includes both action and romance, exotic settings, and Christina Ricci, Mike Vogel, and Kelli Garner.
TV shows that have been cancelled already that I actually liked: ABC’s Charlie’s Angels reboot, NBC’s The Playboy Club
