Monday Maunder: Zombies, Heroes, and a Grimm, Oh My!

I officially submitted my final paper for my class yesterday!  Now, I just wait to see how I did in the class.  With one less responsibility on my plate, that means I had a little extra me time this last weekend, and I spent it catching up on reading and a few television shows.  I don't usually spend a lot of time watching TV, but these are shows that I will watch religiously!

I am not a huge fan of this season so far.  I have appreciated previous seasons more, and find myself just annoyed and feeling like I am just being played with.  For my constant readers, you will likely know that I have read a good chunk of the graphic novels that have inspired the show.  I have ideas of where the show is going, but I sadly cannot feel extreme feelings either way this season.  And trust me when I say that Glenn is one that I have felt pretty strongly about in both mediums.  I guess we will just have to see where the show will take us from here.

I was so very excited to hear that they were rebooting this show because the original was one of my faves.  I was very disappointed when the show did not return.  After finally catching up on this season, I have to say that I am really enjoying it.  I have loved seeing old characters return, and have loved meeting new characters along the way (hello Zachary Levi!!).  I really just cannot get enough of this show, or the concept behind it!

I will be the first to admit that this show is weird, but that's what I love about it, especially considering that  I am a huge fairy tale fan.  I have enjoyed the off-the-wall concept, but rarely find fellow fans of the show.  And, this season has added so many complications that I cannot wait to see how they are resolved.

I will be back next week talking more writing and books, but I would love to have some fellow fans commiserate with me on these shows.  I want to hear what you are thinking of the current season, theories on where they might be going from here, and more.

What are your thoughts on these television shows?  Are you a fellow fan?  Or, do you prefer to watch something else when you are in the mood for television?


  1. I totally love Grimm - one of my favorites! I like the Portland setting a lot and all of the supernatural goodness. I'm also watching Heroes Reborn even though I only watched a season or so of the original. I'm liking it! My other regular favorites are Haven (which is ending soon), Arrow, and Flash. I guess right now I'm watching the same sorts of things that I like to read! ;)

    1. Kristen M. ... I haven't hear of Haven, but the name has me interested. I haven't seen Flash or Arrow either. Maybe I need to check those out too.
