jona: a sleeping panda (panda - sleeping)
In short, and not very analytical, just because.

The Good Wife: This show has been making me kind of depressed. >_< I was never very fannish about it but I always looked forward to it, but the season 6 election storyline, combined with the showrunner's apparent unwillingness to actually shake things up, and many once-interesting recurring characters having outstayed their welcome, have me really very... bored. Last week's episode was a bizarre 42 minute exercise in treading water, and worst of all is that I don't think I like Alicia anymore. :-| There's something going wrong when I'm more on Peter's side in the whole infidelity issue than Alicia's, and having read some backstage gossip I wish I could unsee (but that would explain a lot), I'm having some RL bleedover too. It's all very sad.

Jane the Virgin: it's a bit funny in that like The Good Wife, this is a show I really wasn't going to touch because the title put me off. But damn, is that an adorable show.

The Fosters: I'm not really watching watching this, so technically this doesn't belong on the list. I checked this out last year, very belatedly, because somehow I had missed that there was a TV show about a lesbian couple and their biological-adopted mix of kids. It kind of sounded like something I would like and could potentially like a lot (lesbians! found families!), and, well. I will give it one thing: Teri Polo as one of the mothers is really amazing, and when the plot isn't too stupid, I really enjoy her character. But from the start the show wasn't helped by an ill-advised star-crossed lovers plotline, plus it turns out I have a limited patience for watching a particular style of American (TV?) parenting. Also, in general, this is a show where everyone continously makes terrible choices, and whenever the choice is, 'Do I do this slightly uncomfortable but basically sensible thing where I get help with my problem and, like, don't break the law?' vs. 'Do I do the thing that is easier for exactly five minutes but guaranteed to blow up in my face later?', GUESS WHAT THEY DO. I think hatewatching is too strong a term because I don't feel that strongly about it; I basically get an episode now and then to see who is picking door #2 this week. And get a kick out of Teri Polo being a nommy lesbian.

The Americans: is having an absolutely amazing third season. Somehow I don't click with the fandom at all, so I'm just enjoying it all by my lonesome, and quietly shipping the two married leads something fierce.

Second Love: Kame's spring drama, concluded last Friday with just seven episodes. Spoilers for the whole thing, though not very deep )

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: A recent trial. I don't know what to make of that one yet. The lead is extremely likeable and I enjoy the mix of funny with the macabre premise, but... IDK yet.
