Might be another night of watching wrestling on mute. Usually I am doing something else, like working on Screened or watching something on Netflix, waiting for an interesting match to pop up. I've thought about just DVRing the show and start watching about halfway through. I could skip any tag-team match because I'm tired of seeing Kane and Daniel Bryant never lose and get right to anything with the Shield. The Shield may just feel like an overpowered Nexus and story crutch but it is the most interesting thing Raw for awhile now, at least until CM Punk returns.
What To Watch
|1. How I Met Your Mother|
NBC 8pm: Just like with Big Bang Theory, I got deep into How I Met Your Mother for a summer. I got almost completely caught up in time for the new season that was premiering and realized I was watching the same story. The intriguing plot of when Ted would eventually meet his love seemed more and more lost which each season. Perhaps with Barney getting married things will start changing and the overarching plot refocused.
|2. WWE Raw|
USA 8pm: The ongoing Shield drama has actually started to get somewhat interesting but I'm not sure how I feel about the forced team up of Cena and Ryback. Ryback is an interesting character but seeing Cena forced in the middle of every story has gotten annoying. I'm just hoping CM Punk comes back and in a big way quickly otherwise my interest will start dwindling again.
|3. The Following|
Fox 9pm: The season finale is here and Ryan has to save Claire from Joe. The commercial I saw for this final episode actually had me very interested despite not having watched it yet. Joe seemed to be trying to test Ryan and see just how far he'll go for Claire. I may just have to tear myself away from baseball and wrestling to see what happens.
ABC 10pm: After triggering a bomb Castle has to distract Beckett from possible death while discussing how their romance started. I love that Castle seems to be a show just so Nathan Fillion can be charming on TV at all times. We should band together and demand a show to always exist that would keep Fillion at the center of attention.
NBC 10pm: Renewed for a new season just last week I wonder if Revolution will start to pick up now. Sometimes when you can work on a project and not have to worry about your job it can free you up to make the show better. It's great to see these science fiction dramas on "main steam" TV but they'll need an upgrade in quality in order to survive.
