I don't care that I have an easy/low-stress workday... I wanna go home and watch tv and love my kitties...

Still haven't seen the debuts of Atlanta, Better Things, or the stealth-preview of Son of Zorn, but I will be doing that soon.

And NBC's The Good Place premieres tonight, though it's normally going to be on Thursdays. I love Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, and the work of creator Michael Schur (The Office, Parks & Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), so I will be watching that. http://www.avclub.com/article/michael-s ... ks--242700

Getting excited about Westworld, but it's been bothering me that I haven't seen the 1973 Michael Crichton movie... gonna try to do that soon ($5.49 for a dvd on Amazon) ...

(there was a 1976 sequel, Futureworld, and a 5-episode-but-only-3-made-it-to-air 1980 tv series, Beyond Westworld, fun trivia...)

There is not much I want to watch so far but a few things up coming like the new series with Kiefer Sutherland. The original movie Westworld was quite good but then I haven't seen it for so long I wonder what I would think of it if I saw it now. I am looking forward to the series.

I watched Westworld back when they started talking about doing the series on HBO. I liked the concept of it but I remember that my attention started to wander before the end of it. The previews for the series look good but my gut is telling me that I'm not going to love it.

While I have a strong dislike of SJP as that Sex in the City character, I'm amused by the previews for Divorce.

I'll watch Luke Cage, though I'm not nearly as excited after that lackluster season of Daredevil.

I did write down a couple new shows to tape. The Sarah Jessica Parker thing is not one of them. I did watch sex in the city for a while in the beginning but got tired of that pretty quick. We always start out by taking 5 or 6 shows and then end up with one or two that we like.

The Good Place was funny. I didn't know what to expect, so it came as a pleasant surprise. Kristin Bell and William Jackson Harper played well off of each other. Danson did his thing, though I enjoyed him more on Curb.

I'll check out This is Us on Sepinwall's recommendation.
