Sunday Post #210


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

It's been a pretty slow week, nice and quiet. I did a bit more reading amd I'm continuing with my rewatches of Continuum and the 100. Because I don't have enough NEW shows to watch, I have to watch old ones. :) But I have to say it's been nice to revisit the first two seasons of The 100 in particular, so thanks to Shannon for pushing me along! Other than that it's been pretty quiet, not a lot happening besides it being September now. Which is baffling to me.

Last week I posted Part IX of On the Run and Part X will be this week (and I had no clue there would even be a Part X). Zounds! I reviewed Friend Request and read Wreck- that review will be soon- and On the Run X will be up Monday.

  1. I've been wanting to check out 100, as well, but my tv and movie list is getting longer and longer. I only know that it will get worse as the new Fall season starts up. (lol) Really like that Mike Shayne Mystery throwback. Very cool! Hugs...RO

    1. The 100 is pretty great. And I know the feeling! Glad you liked the pulp cover this week- it is kinda fun. :)

  2. My TV list is way too long and I really need to get one series watched every month at the very least. But I get distracted by things like Masterchef, Deadliest Catch and Bake Off! At least I'm getting films watched which is an improvement!

    1. I know what you mean. I have SO many shows to watch although I'm binging them down slowly but surely! And yay for films- that's one area where I have totally fallen down. Haven't see a film in a while.

  3. Looking forward to seeing your thoughts on One Dark Throne :) Hope you enjoy it!

    Glad you're enjoying re-watching the 100 series 1 and 2. I've been so preoccupied with other shows I haven't started series 2 yet :(

    Hope you have a great week, Greg.

    1. I did like One Dark Throne and can't wait to see people's reactions! I feel like it ups the game a bit? And The 100 is so fun- and S2 is probably my favorite. Hope you enjoy if you watch it!!!

  4. I haven't read Three Dark Crowns yet, but I'm really excited to. I love the covers as well! Also, the Song Pick sounded awesome and I added it to my playlist. Great post!

    1. Oh I think you'll like it and the second one really ups the stakes.

  5. Ahh! I love the cover of One Dark Throne that you got! Mine is the one of the actual throne. Can't wait to discuss those books! Under spoiler tags, of course!

    Glad you had a nice quiet week. Not sure if you saw my cheeky little comment on last week's post about linking all your 'On The Run' posts in your next one?

    Can't wait to actually delve back and catch up on your blog properly, especially on your episode recaps of GoT! I'm officially ready to start the new season.... Unfortunately it's a bit of a busy weekend for me, but hopefully I'll at least get one or two in! Hopefully! 🀞

    1. I love that cover too, and to be honest that's not the cover I have but I used it because I love it! And yes lots to discuss in these books!!

      I did see your comment and I agree- I really should make it easier for people to read previous installments. Thanx for the suggestions!

      Thanks for taking the time to browse around- I appreciate! And don't feel bad- real life makes it h ard to blog sometimes but has to come first! Hope you enjoy Got!!!

  7. Rewatching The 100 sounds like a great way to pass the time while waiting for the new season. I'm already so impatient for it. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  9. Quiet weeks aren't a bad thing. Sometimes just enjoying some TV and books is exactly what you need and your rewatch of The 10 sounds like a great idea. I definitely need to catch up on the show so maybe I'll have a rewatch of it all. Hope you have a great week.

    1. It was nice to have a quiet week especially since September probably won't be as quiet! I've definitely enjoyed my The 100 rewatch and it's amazing how many things I've forgotten. So I guess it was a good idea.

  10. Quiet weeks are good. They give you time to get reading/watching done. Enjoy your shows and have a great week!

    1. It was a good week that way. Especially since September looks to be a little more hectic!

  11. I still haven't watched the 100 because I heard it went off the rails somewhere in the 2nd or 3rd season. Slow and quiet weeks sound good about now. :)

    1. The first two seasons of the 100 are really good, for me it was S3 that I didn't like. The characters were still fine, it was the story. S4 was a redemption of sorts, but those first two= lots of fun.

      Delete
  12. I am having trouble believing it is September too. I am glad it is here though. I need to go back and pick up where I left off with On the Run. I had fallen behind during my vacation. I am really enjoying it! I've been seeing One Dark Throne around. It looks like it will be good. I hope you enjoy it!

    I hope you have a great weekend and week, Greg!

    ReplyDelete
  13. See, rewatching really IS better than worrying about new stuff ;) Until you get to S3 and get super angry at Pillamy, and then ALL the chipped people. I digress, it's still worth it.

    The Future City pictures remind me of 2077 in Continuum! I love The Bridge, too. It's like somehow both lovely and terrifying. And the last video, goodness, that is gorgeous!! I am also so impressed that you're already on part 10 of On the Run! At this point, you might as well just write a whole book :)

    Looking forward to your thoughts about Wreck- it looks really good, and I am curious!

  14. It does seem like we skipped most of summer. Feels odd. I've started rewatching Stranger Things and just finished catching up on Game Of Thrones. My son talked me into watching The Defenders. Not too sure about it but will keep watching for now. It seems to be picking up in the third episode. Great pics, as always. And I like that pulp cover.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am re-watching Nurse Jackie on Netflix; I might also decide to watch Cheers and Friends there, since I've never seen all episodes of either show.

    Enjoy your week of reading and watching, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have to get back to The 100 one of these days too. It's just that I don't feel like watching TV much these days. I have so many good books to read;)
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  17. Yep, Setember and it has been fricken cold here!

    ON THE RUN TEN... AMAZING! I left a Tor.com link on your Twitter that you might be interested in. They are going to be accepting original short stories to post on the site.:D

    Have a wonderful week.

  19. Crazy that it's September already right? It feels like it was just August.. Sigh!! Before we know it it's Christmas!! (Which I love so I don't really mind.. but still!!!)
    I'm rewatching Bones at the moment! And I would love to rewatch GOT!! So much to do and so little time!! LOL!!
    Have a great week and happy reading ;)

  21. My TV watching is liable to get far busier - Himself requested the boxed set of GoT for his birthday, which includes the first 6 episodes so we can experience them together. Given I'm also watching the Cormoran Strike mini-series, the Great British Bakeoff and Strictly is about to start up again, I may just have to take my TV intravenously... Have a great week, Greg:) My Sunday Post -

  22. I never got into the 100 and I wish I had I know loads of people who love it. I always keep binging old shows when I have a ton of shows to watch lol I still need to read Three Dark Crowns but it's moving further up my TBR.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The 100 is on my to watch list - I have season 1 sitting waiting for me to dive in - but I'm unsure. Maybe now it's been recommended, again, I'll finally give it a chance. πŸ™‚

    ReplyDelete
  24. Maybe one of these days I will try 100 again, not much of a dystopian fan but I did watch the first season on netflix but then just sort of drifted away. :)

    Have a great week and enjoy your new reads!

  26. I have such a long list of things to watch, but my husband and I have been watching Power on Hulu. We've been trying random t.v. shows trying to find new things to watch. :) Enjoy the new additions and your week ahead too.

  27. Confession time : I've never watched the 100 or Continuum *hides in a bush*. Oh and if you don't know what to watch, you can try Death Note (I'm talking about the anime, not the movie of course) ~
    I LOVE the song you picked. So good ~

    1. Ha ha you need to watch The 100!! Sooo good. :)

    2. I don't know if the anime is on netflix :o

  28. I haven't watched the 100 or Continuum, but I haven't watched TV much for quite sometime. I will have to add those to the list of shows that I need to get to especially if they merit a re-watch! I look forward to your review of Wreck. :)

    1. You know I used to never watch TV, before I started blogging and got hooked on all these shows! The 100 is lots of fun and the characters are so compelling, it's one of those shows that's fun to talk about!

      I thought Wreck was pretty good, not amazing or anything but solid, and it's set in Australia, which I liked.

  29. I did a rewatch of Criminal Minds this summer and loved it. Sometimes I forget how much I enjoyed earlier episodes of a show so its nice to get back to them!

  30. I was moaning about not having anything new to watch just last night ... Though we do have new bake off just started and Dr. Foster starts next week.

    1. I know, I've had to resort to re- watching even though there ARE a few shows I want to try. Depends on the mood I suppose. Ooh and Dr. Foster is returning- next week? Yay! I liked that show and can't wait to see it, although I'll probably have to wait til Netflix gets S2...

  31. Oh, that Nox Atacama film is beautiful. I love the music, too.

    Since we got rid of cable tv (and can't get broadcast TV where we are), I haven't watched anything when it's new. But it can be fun to rewatch old favorites via DVD or Netflix or Amazon streaming. And I've discovered some shows that may not be new but are new to me. All the same, I think we're going to subscribe to CBS All Access this fall, so we can watch the new Star Trek series. :-)

    1. Isn't that cool? I loved it.

      I agree, it's fun to watch old favorites. Yay for DVD and streaming! I hope you like the new Star trek show.

  32. Nox Atacama is total eye candy!! I almost feel "high" watching and listening :) Great pictures yet again! Are you anticipating or dreading the new Blade Runner movie?

    Replies
    1. I loved it! I was hoping everyone would click on it because I thought it was so cool...

      You know I'm kinda anticipating the new Blade Runner just because I want to see a new take, and the music and the visuals... but I'm expecting to be disappointed, so if it's actually good then bonus!!

  33. I'm glad to see you had a nice quiet week Greg, it feels like ages since I had one of those! As I'm sure I've mentioned before I am super behind on my tv shows, so for the last two weeks I've been trying to play catch up, I'm almost done with season 6 of Game of Thrones! I know I don't know how I've managed to stay away from all the spoilers! I've also heard great things about The 100, another list that I'll be adding to my to watch list! I hope you have a great week! :)

  34. A nice, slow, quiet week is good sometimes :-) But yeah, kinda crazy that it's Sep already! Time is so weird... Anyway, I don't watch all the shows you do, but I just realized that Suits has been back since July, so I'm looking forward to binging all the episodes I missed this week!

  37. We all need nice quiet weeks once in a while. I've never gotten in to 100, but I did watch Riverdale upon your recommendation and you know I'm dying for the new season to start. I'm anxiously awaiting your review of The Pack because I have my eyes on it!

  44. I was watching 100 streaming and then somehow forgot about it. I should get back to it. At the moment I'm counting down the days for the start of the new Outlander season by rewatching the old shows.

    Love the covers so educative.

  47. wow that video is indeed amazing! I think I'll muse it to meditate. I love all the pics too but especially Ringworld!!
    Thanks for sharing them! I started reading On the RUN X and realized I had missed the previous one because I was sick and super busy last week. It's getting so good. I want to know about Eric and Andres. HOW DARE HE blackhand him like that!!! I need to catch up with what is going on NOW. :)

  48. Summer is a slow time for TV, and most of the summer shows I watch had their summer finales. Compound that with the fact that new episodes don't tend to be shown around holidays, and it's a really slow TV week.

  52. I would love to rewatch some tv shows like Stargate but we have such a stack of tv shows to get through. It is not going fast at the moment. Maybe this Fall again. We need to get to season 2 of the 100.

    A nice and quiet week sounds great.

  60. I such a huge back up of shows that I need to watch, I'd never be able to re-watch and get ahead! Hope this short week finds lots of time for reading.

  61. Those nice and quiet weeks can be great! I hope you're enjoying your rewatches, sometimes it's fun to return to and old favorite instead of something new.
