Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! We love to watch TV shows in the evening while we have dinner, but rarely anything on broadcast. We do not like forcing ourselves into a certain routine of plopping down on the sofa at a given time to view the newest episode of our favorite show. Nope, that’s just not gonna happen, especially in the age we live in today.
Thanks to the technology of the internet and streaming video players, TV watching is now convenient to do. We can view our favorite shows without missing a single episode or time restraints. Isn’t that cool?
Recently, we found a couple new shows we’d never be able to watch because they air on the SyFy channel. Believe it or not, we are one of the few who do not have cable TV. We are hoping cable networks will make their way to the internet streaming platform as an a le carte option making it easier for people like us who don’t want to subscribe to an entire cable package. That day is fast approaching! Anyhow, back to the new programming treasures. Do you like Science Fiction? I am discovering I like SyFy more than I thought.
First up, on Netflix….
Helix At an Arctic Research facility doctors are exposed to a lethal antigen. The contagious people are vessels of destruction bent on infecting everyone in the facility and it’s only a matter of time before it makes its way into the world. The Centers for Disease Control is called in for help to stop the virus, but are they too late? What is this mystery virus? Will the CDC find a cure? Watch season one to see for yourself!
The writers seem to struggle with Helix. It starts slow, but by the end of the 2nd or 3rd episode, the story line snagged us. I’m more curious than anything to see the direction the writers take Helix in season two and we plan to resume the series once its available on Netflix. On a scale from 1-5, I’d rate it about 3.
One day, while using my elliptical and watching the old Dark Shadows TV series on Hulu Plus, I saw a trailer for another syfi show that grabbed my attention.
Next up on Amazon Prime is….
Defiance season one In the not-so-distant future in the wake of an alien invasion, the earth gives birth to a new world after the war settles leaving landscape permanently altered and several new species of life integrated among humans. It’s kinda like life all over in the wild west once again, but this time it’s a matter of survival not only for humans, but for extraterrestrials.
The season climax of Defiance left so many unanswered questions that I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds in season two. I’m eager for its arrival to pop up in our watch list. On the same rating basis as before, I give Defiance 4.5!
What do you think, are these TV series you would like to watch?
I’m joining Les from Time Out For Mom for Tuesday Coffee Chat this with this morning’s prompt: I think; therefore I have a headache. Suffer from over-thinking? Guilty of the thinking much? Or, just.. .meh.
I don’t know, if I have thought so much that I’ve gotten a headache or not, but sometimes I think too much at the wrong times, i.e. bedtime. That’s never a good idea to do a lot thinking when I am trying to sleep. At times, I can’t shut my brain off at night. I will lay for hours in bed trying to figure out a solution to whatever is bugging me. Usually it’s wasted time spent on a matter that’s out of my hands before I realize I need to turn it completely over to God. I ask for God’s help to release the situation entirely to Him and ask that He give me peace for a good night’s rest. Once I get to this point, I humbly lean upon the Lord while I drift to sleep. This sounds easy, but it’s not. It took me years to learn that I can’t do anything without God and until I accepted this truth then I my brain works overtime at all hours ~ day and night. I remind myself faced with turmoil of these words from the Bible.
5Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. ~Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
That’s a wrap for this morning. I’m hopping over to Stacy’s for Random Tuesday Thoughts and you’re welcome to join me, if you want. I hope you’ll hop & link up tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday. Have a terrific Tuesday!
