I’ve never watched The Office. I’m not even sure when The Mindy Project airs (it is on, Fox, right?) Until this book was selected for my book club, I didn’t know who Mindy Kaling was. However, that lack of familiarity didn’t negatively impact my enjoyment. I’m sure pre-existing fans might enjoy it more, but anyone with a liking for light memoirs stands a chance of enjoying Kaling’s offering.
It started with the dream of becoming Miss Team Dream. The dream crash landed along with their airplane, however. The surviving members of the Miss Team Dream competition must find a way to survive the natural dangers of a tropical island while at the same time staying fit for their competition—and taking down a corporate conspiracy.
With a new week, I find myself incredibly thankful that I didn’t add any extra series’ goals to replace Space Brothers. Between 2 tennis lessons a week plus now scheduling 3 sessions of physical therapy per week for a couple of sports injuries, I barely have time to eke through 4 episodes of backlog–and simulcasts are quickly piling up as well. I’ll admit, I didn’t watch any backlog episodes until Sunday which was cutting it rather close to achieve my goals for the week.
PLEASE BE WARNED THAT THIS POST INCLUDES SPOILERS FOR BROTHER, DEAR BROTHER (AKA ONIISAMA E) EPISODE 33. DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO KNOW ABOUT AN IMPORTANT AND TRAGIC EVENT IN THE STORY.
So in the end I decided not to replace Space Brothers with any other backlog shows. There’s just too much to watch with simulcasts and being unable to control myself when it comes to Brother, Dear Brother–that show just demands watching a bunch of episodes in a row!
Ballet is on Ditty’s mind. It’s elegant, beautiful, fascinating…and goes against all the rules of modesty of her religion sect, Haredi Judaism. However, she cannot ignore the way ballet calls to her, and soon Ditty is leaving a double-life that could cost her everything.
It’s been a good week for my backlog as I finished clearing out my simulcast backlog by catching up with Space Brothers. I’m still trying to decide if I want to work on another show in its place (perhaps Sket Dance) or if I just want to have more time available for keeping up with this season’s simulcasts. The decision is more difficult because only one other show really works as a morning watch (along with SB which will stay in that time slot for me). Then again, that counts for 4 days so perhaps it works out just fine. I think for now I’ll give myself a tiny break and decide next week if I’m ready to tackle another show.
Sophronia has been the bane of her high class-country household for most of her life. Rather than reveling in frills, she prefers climbing, horseback riding, and taking apart gadgets. Frustrated with her daughter’s unladylike behavior, Sophronia’s mother sends her to Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality, a finishing school that proves to be much more than it advertises.
The spring season is in full swing, and I don’t just mean the anime season. The weather in Indiana has been unsettled, switching from 80 degrees to 45 degrees within hours. This has led to perfect days for not watching anime and some perfect days to do nothing but watch anime. In the end, it tends to just even itself out quite well.
Time for the second half of the shows I’ve chosen to watch this season. I can’t believe all but 3 of the ones I wanted got picked up for streaming (excluding 2 shows that turned out to be irregular series–although they sounded cool).
Well now, last week was a little rough on the backlog, what with more and more of the shows I was interested in getting picked up. Once I culled my list of a couple of shows that weren’t normal releases, I had 16 that I was interested in, 13 of which were picked up (and 1 that I dropped after the first episode). That’s gives me 15 series to follow this spring with only 1 being a short. Compare that to the winter season where I 10 with 2 being shorts. Meep! I’ll definitely be sticking to 2 episode goals for my backlog for awhile!
