Tom and Summer

 

There was a lot of homework to do this week, my friends. Podcasts of my own, podcasts for other people, not to mention a blindspot still to be consumed this evening.

It led to a lot of watching-with-purpose. Lord knows I’m not opposed to such things, but sometimes it feels a lot less fun when there are two or three dozen classics clogging up one’s PVR…or a small cluster of blu-rays like GONE GIRL and INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS that one feels like digging into.

Anyone else ever struggle with that? Putting aside things you WANT to watch in light of things you NEED to watch?

No? Just me?
Here’s the week at hand…
