I am always looking for something good to watch while knitting. The new TV season is upon us and I’ve found a couple of new things I really like.
Betrayal is a soap opera type drama but it has crime drama overtones. It is strictly for adults and starts right off with murder and sex. I’ve watched the first two episodes and plan to go back and watch some more. There is a lot going on and enough unanswered questions to keep me interested. Some of the actors look familiar but until I looked on IMDB I didn’t really know who anyone was. They work well together and nothing so far seems unbelievable. Most importantly for me, there isn’t anything on the screen that is missed if you have to look down at your knitting for a few minutes.
When I saw Sleepy Hollow was coming to TV but with a twist I kind of rolled my eyes. It seems that once one network has a fairy tale or a crime drama all the other networks roll out a whole bunch. But with this I was pleasantly surprised. The premise is somewhat believable, for a fantasy. The acting is very good. The Husband is a huge fantasy fan and he really likes it. I find it perfect for knitting. There is just enough story to keep me watching but I can knit and not miss much. Though every time the lead actor introduces himself as Ichabod Crane I expect someone to say “Really?”.
My favorite show this season so far is Hostages. It’s exciting and unexpected. It has big name actors and an interesting storyline. I’m very interested to see how the different stories all tie in together. I’m also looking forward to seeing just how far things will be pushed. As for how this goes with my knitting, well, I keep finding myself not knitting when watching this. There are some tense moments and I just forget to keep my hands moving.
So what are you watching this season?
