Let’s Shake Some Dust!

Everyone has their favorite TV show, whether it be Lost or Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Mine ended almost 10 years ago.

The Return of Walt Longmire

A&E, why did you have to go and cancel one of my favorite shows?

Longmire is easily in my top 5 favorite shows, so I was really surprised and really upset to find out it had been cancelled. But I got a nice surprise in my WordPress Reader this evening…

Michael Slezak from TVLine is reporting that Netflix is in “deep negotiations” to order a fourth season of the Wyoming-set crime drama. Yay!

If you haven’t watched Longmire, please do! The first 2 seasons are streaming on Netflix right now. The third season just wrapped in August, so it might not be up for a while. I really don’t like any sort of crime dramas, but Longmire is so captivating for some reason. It’s probably the beautiful, small-town, sheriffs office setting. While there is usually a case-of-the-week (which I hate), there is also an actual story from episode to episode. The show is based on the “Walt Longmire Mysteries”, a series of mystery novels by author Craig Johnson.

The show ended with a cliffhanger, so I’m really hoping Netflix closes this deal.

Walkers are Everywhere

Since The Walking Dead is on tonight, I thought I’d talk about something TWD related that doesn’t have to do with the show for a change.

A lot of times, when video game companies come out with games based on movies or TV, they don’t do very well. For example, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. I’ve never played it, and I don’t really want to based on what I have read/seen.

While this TWD related game didn’t do well, The Walking Dead Game by Telltale Games has been incredibly successful. If you’re a fan of the show, you will probably really like this game. Even if you’ve never read or watched The Walking Dead, the game is great on its own. It has its own characters and its own storyline.

If you’re unfamiliar, this game is episodic. It’s split into “seasons” and “episodes”, much like a TV show. There are currently 2 seasons, each with 5 episodes. A third is currently being developed. The Walking Dead Game has received global acclaim, receiving over 80 Game of the Year and other awards.

The great thing about this game is that it focuses more on telling a good story rather than having a lot of action. In an interview with Game Informer, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman talks about what interested him in making the game with Telltale Games: “They came to me with a proposal that involved decision-making and consequences rather than ammunition gathering or jumping over things; I was impressed by that.”

I have to mention it get’s really emotional. You have to make split-second decisions that determine who lives and dies. The last episode of the first season had me in tears. I’m not going to spoil anything; just don’t say I didn’t warn you.

If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, or even if you’re not, give The Walking Dead Game a play. It’s a really great story, and a really great game. I still have one episode left of the second season. I don’t want to play it because I know I’m going to have a hard time waiting for season 3, and I know I’m probably going to cry!

Counting Sheep

I’m falling asleep as I type this.

I haven’t been posting as much recently, but I promise there’s a good reason. There have been a lot of (positive) changes at my place of work, and I have been working a lot more than usual. I mean, I went from 14 hours/wk to 38 hours/wk. A lot of hours plus being a full-time student doesn’t leave me a lot of time for other things.

I have still been watching my shows, but not when they air. I’ve been relying a lot on my DVR because I can’t even stay awake to catch the primetime shows (except Sons of Anarchy…I will always stay up for Sons of Anarchy). My point being, by the time I get around to watching something, it is days past the air date so discussion is long over. I’m still reading other blogs and keeping up with everything. Once things settle down at work, I will try to post regularly again.

I’m going to bed now.

Mom

It’s always nice to have someone to watch TV with. For years, watching TV has been bonding time for me and my mom. It all started back in 2004, when Lost first premiered. My mom told me she would ground me if I didn’t watch it with her, and so it began…

Now, we watch almost every show together. Sometimes we’ll start one on our own and get the other into it. Sometimes there is a show we don’t both like, so we go solo on it. But for the most part, every show I watch, I share with my mom.

I’m so sad! I love SOA! These are some great photos from the set, though!
