aka, things I was watching before the Olympics started up and I began having sudden and intense feelings about luge.

Teen Wolf

I feel like watching this show is more than a little like rooting for the Mets. You go in with very low expectations, because you know what you're getting yourself into. Then there are some pleasant surprises, and there's that point mid-season where they get hot, and you think, hey, there's some real potential here. Maybe they're actually going somewhere! Maybe this time will be different! And then, of course, it's not, and everything collapses, and you end the season lying on the floor clutching an empty bottle, wondering why you do this to yourself. (I'm pretty sure Dylan O'Brien is Matt Harvey in this analogy.)

So yes, the last few episodes are the equivalent of the midseason hot streak, and I'm definitely intrigued by what's going on, but it's hard to have confidence that it's actually going to end up in any sort of coherent and satisfying way. I live in hope of being proved wrong. (That goes double for the Mets.)

Downton Abbey

I knew I'd like this show, but if I'd known just how much of it was an epic bitchfest between Professor McGonagall and Harriet Jones (MP), I'd have gotten around to watching it a lot sooner. Currently up to early S3, not so unspoiled that I don't know what awaits me at the end.

The After

This is one of the Amazon Prime pilots, from Chris Carter of The X-Files, co-starring (among others) Aldis Hodge, Adrian Pasdar, and an almost unrecognizable Jamie Kennedy and Sharon Lawrence.
