So I went through all the episodes of TV I need to see, and I'm like 44 episodes behind. That's 2 complete seasons of TV! I am going to actually try to catch up on a lot of this stuff this week (although there's no way I'm getting to all of it, especially since right now I'm pretty obsessed with watching as many movies as possible, and I'm half-way through The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins and I'm really liking it, so I'll want to spend some time reading that. Also, I probably should spend some time on schoolwork and stuff).

I finally watched the Psych finale, and lakjsf;lkj omg Hitchcock! They even included Frenzy, which while one of my least favorites of Hitchcock is one of his lesser known, so I liked that they didn't just stick to the major obvious ones. And Lifeboat! That's one of his I haven't seen (I've actually only seen half of all his films, but I have seen all his major ones and many of his minor ones). Spoilers for Psych 4.16 )

Chuck 3.11 )

How I Met Your Mother 5.18 )

Greek 3.18-19 )

I'm somehow already at 52 movies this year. This has never happened before for me. Even last year when I got super obsessed with watching movies in February, in March I only watched 3, so I barely got to 50 by the end of June. And of course I didn't even come close to getting 100 by the end of that year. At this rate, I'll be to 100 by the end of June, meaning that I will have reached my goal in half the time I expected. This is mostly due to getting Netflix, because before when I didn't feel like watching movies, I just wouldn't watch any for a month because it's not like it was costing me anything. But since I'm paying money every month for Netflix, I feel like I have to watch stuff (with instant watch, I'm at about 27 cents a movie, which I think is pretty good). Plus, they physically send me movies, so it's not like I have to go to any trouble to see something that I'm interested in. I'm still surprised I've managed to get so many in, though. In April and May it'll probably die down a little, though, since I have a lot of various projects and assignments this month, and in May I'll have finals and then I'll probably be driving from St. Paul to Orange County with my parents like we normally do which takes a week and a half and I'll have spotty internet connection and no permanent location to receive DVDs.

Anyways, on my last day at home I watched 12 Angry Men and Stalag 17 with my mom on TCM (both of which were very good, although neither are going to vault into my favorite films of all time or anything), and now I'm desperately wishing I had cable TV here if only so I could watch TCM whenever I wanted. (Not that I didn't know how much awesome stuff TCM played before, but when I was checking to see what they had to watch, I looked past Saturday afternoon and saw a bunch of other stuff they were showing, and I wished I was staying at home longer just so I could watch them.) Having Netflix does help, of course, but there are a good number of films that look really good that I want to watch that aren't on Netflix. I already looked at the schedule for late May (when I'll be back home for sure) and I have a list of stuff I want to watch that's airing on TCM.

I want to rec some more movies, like I did with Memento, sometime this week, but I'm debating whether I should do mini-picspams of them. I want to, but I don't know that I have the time. I mean... I probably could fit it in, and I've mentioned I don't have a lot this week, but I have so much next week and the week after that I should start now (although I do have a 3-day weekend starting April 2nd, so that'll help), and it might be hard to find caps of some of the films I want to talk about. But we'll see.
