PsychThink Pysch is just another crime show? Psych! Think again.

About: The TV show Psych features Shawn Spencer (James Roday) is an observant man who has an eidetic memory and incredible investigation skills. In order to solve cases with the Santa Barbara police department, Shawn pretends to be a psychic. Opening up a business with his best friend Gus (DulƩ Hill) called Pysch, the pair assist with solving crimes all the while trying to maintain their ruse.

Why:I have seen so many screenshots and gifs about this show (shout out to that fandom), and I have always wanted to sit down and give the show a chance. Turns out its just as great and funny as tumblr made it seem!

2019 Goals!

Happy 2019!

I have a few things that I would like to get done in 2019 and since I like making lists, I thought I would share them with you all. I really want to focus on getting things done that I have been putting off for ages – a lot of these things are ones I’ve previously started or got half way through and then gave up. So 2019 is the year of the reread – rewatch – and the replay.

Reading

Reread

It’s not like I have enough to read as it is, I want to go back and give a bunch of series a reread. They’re either ones that I never finished or ones from my childhood that I want to see if they hold up.

Read

The below aren’t really specific titles but rather authors or series that I have seen around and I want to see what they’re like.

Watching

āˆšĀ  Watch more than the first episode of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.

Playing

Start

Finish

I have so many games that I am half way through and really need to finish. I have a tendency to not finish a game even though I am really near the end because I think I need to keep playing and experiencing more of the story.

  • Mass Effect 3 – my save file from Mass Effect 2 corrupted šŸ˜„ and I need to go back and play the last boss battle to get it back. It was such a blow that I haven’t been back but I just really love the series and need to finish it!
  • Dream Daddy.
  • The Men of Yoshiwara: Kukuya.
  • Dragon Age –Ā you may have noticed I have a weakness for choice based role play games. Especially ones that have an easy difficulty level.

Currently Consuming: Monty Python’s Flying Circus

Small Currentrly consuming

monty phytonIt’s-

About: Put simplyĀ Monty Python’s Flying Circus is a sketch comedy show from the 60s. However when you look a little bit closer you see that the show was a revolution for absurdist humour, launched a number of careers, and had a lasting affect on humour which reaches into shows and movies of today.

Why: While I devoured the show during my childhood, my partner has only ever seen The Life of Brain and The Holy Grail. I feel like this is a huge oversight on his part and since Netflix has made the show available (in such a better quality than the VHS I watched the show on) we have been making our way through the 45 episodes.

Comfort Zone Challenge: Battle Creek (2015)

Comfort Zone Challenge - TV

Second Last Month!

For this month’s challenge, I decided that I would try and tackle a television police show. I’m not the biggest fan of police procedurals or any type of crime show, so I had to try and find something that I would like but also still challenge my comfort zone. So immediately dismissing Brooklyn 99 as an option (because I love that show) I tried to find something that was both gritty and funny.

Small Snippet of April

Small Snippet april

Once again we find ourselves with a large gap in between posts, and once again I offer the same excuse. I’m just so tired. Due to this posts often get put so way behind on my priorities, but fret not you’ll get random posts.

Last month was a bit of a blur for me but there were some stand outs amongst the noise.

Sia – This is Actingsia

I have always been aware of Sia, especially her early work within Australia, however her last album and this new one have grabbed my attention. Where 1,000 Forms of Fear was a evolution of her personal style, This is Acting is Sia hitting her mark. The album is solid from start to end, I can say that I am a fan of every song on the album and often find myself sneaking a headphone in and listening to it at work.

They’re so bad, it’s good.SunnyCover

About: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is an American television show that follows the lives and misadventures of terribleĀ five people as they run a bar and, put simply, are horribleĀ to each other. The draw card of this show is the truly awkward and cringe worthy moments that litter the show. With episode titles such as ‘Frank Sets Sweet Dee on Fire,’ ‘Who pooped the bed?’ and ‘The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby,’ the show seems to tackle every taboo, off colour, uncomfortable topic and just run with it.
