Pimpin my February Obsessions

It is that time again; time to discuss my obsessions for the month.  February was a good month, tv-wise, for me because a couple of my favorite shows returned. 
Archer  - The very adult cartoon that comes on Fx on Thursday nights is one of my favorite things EVER!  It makes me laugh hysterically which is something we all need sometimes, ya know?  If you haven’t watched, I highly recommend it.  Just know that it is definitely not for children, even though it is a cartoon.  Also, there are a lot of in-jokes so you might want to start with Season 1, in order to get it all.  But truly, even if you just watch one episode, you’ll be laughing.  And your mouth might be hanging open in shock at some point, too.  I swear, the show is SO inappropriate!  I LOVE IT! 

Justified – You will see a theme on this blog with television shows on the Fx channel.  Apparently, Fx is my favorite channel and a bunch of the shows I’m obsessed with air there.  Justified joins Sons of Anarchy and Archer as “can’t miss” tv for me.  The writing is sharp and witty and the action is great but the real reason to watch Justified is Timothy Olyphant’s portrayal of Raylan Givens, the US Marshall assigned to the backwoods of Kentucky where he grew up.  Raylan Givens is, quite simply, THE. MAN.

WWE – I was a big fan of the WWF/WWE back in the day, when Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H and, of course, The Rock were the main stars.  My love of wrestling goes waaaay back to the days of Dusty Rhodes and Jimmy Supafly Snooka and Magnum TA in the NWA (I DID grow up in North Carolina, after all!) but I haven’t watched in years, mainly because all of my faves have moved on.  Well, that has certainly changed in the last month and there was one moment that changed it.  THE PEOPLE’S CHAMP IS BACK!!  LONG LIVE THE ROCK!!  I won’t even tell you how many times I’ve watched this video but I will mention that, even though I KNOW that’s he’s coming out, my heart skips a beat EVERY time I watch it and I hear, “IF YOU SMELLLLLLLLL…” 

Oh, that man.  Welcome back, Rocky!

The Losers – I’ll admit; unless a movie is a Harry Potter movie, a Marvel comics movie or….yeah that’s about it….I’m usually notoriously late on seeing it.  I don’t really care to go to the movies that much and even though I have Netflix , I catch up more on TV using that.  So, I’m usually months behind the crowd seeing most movies.  Which is why The Losers is in my obsessions post now…instead of sometime last year!  Jeffery Dean Morgan + Idris Elba + Oscar Jaenada + Chris EM EFFIN Evans = HELL. YES. 
I was also obsessed with Twitter and several Facebook Games (Bejeweled Blitz, Zuma Blitz and Family Feud, just in case you’re wondering) this past month.  What I wasn’t obsessed with, unfortunately, was writing, reading or exercising!  I need to be devoting as much time to those things as I am to my other obsessions but, in order to do so, I’ve got to scale something back.  So, you may not see me as frequently on Twitter this month.  Or on Facebook.  And I may not get to watch everything I want.  But I hope when it comes time to do my March obsessions post, I have good news to share on the writing, reading and exercising front.
