The Watch List: Part V

The list grows shorter again this month, but that’s a little bit misleading since I watched nearly 230 TedTalks. I’d go into more detail about that, but that’s a whole other blog entry.

I just haven’t had much time (or inclination) to sit down and watch 2 hour movies lately, so for entertainment, I’ve stuck to watching episodic television, mainly Breaking Bad and more Masterpiece Mystery. There also aren’t a whole lot of movies left on my NetFlix queue that don’t fall into the following categories:

  • Movies my wife and I  added that both of us really want to see, but don’t have time when we’re both home to see right now
  • Movies my wife added that she probably doesn’t even want to see anymore
  • Children’s movies we added for the rainy weekends of winter

I expect next month’s report to get even slimmer… so slim that I might even start blogging about individual movies. Not sure I really want to get into that yet, as I have a ton of other topics I want to blog about. We’ll see.

So anyway, listed below are the movies and TV series I’ve been watching since Part IV of this series:

  • [x] = Number of Episodes watched if TV show
  • ( y ) = Rating out of 5.
  • Items in bold = ones I highly recommend
