As I do every year since it began, my television has not moved from The Hallmark Channel since the end of October. I know the movies are cheesy and a little bit repetitive, but I love them. I did not enjoy many of the movies that were done last year for Countdown to Christmas (the best movies from last year was actually from Fall Harvest), but this year has many more that are giving me the warm and fuzzies. My favorite, so far, has been December Bride. A Dream of Christmas was pretty darn cute too. There is still a few more new ones to go, but I have been loving it….as usual. One of these days, I’m going to do a list of my favorite movies from Countdown to Christmas in the last few years. Are you watching? What has been your favorite?

Whew! Vikings has been renewed for another year. I can not explain how happy this show makes me. I’m very excited to see where all of these characters are going.
Viking’s won out on my Thursday night television dilemma. I was very impressed by Lagertha. So often in the movies, the women just take the crap they are handed. I was happy that she went her heart. She’s not willing to share her husband and I don’t blame her. Good for you!
I will be watching Scandal tonight, so I am hoping it is another premiere that will make me happy.

I have a dilemma for my Thursday night television watching schedule. For the last few years, I have watched Scandal at 10pm. Well, we are finally getting a new episode after what feels like an almost two month break. Here is the dilemma. My new addiction, Vikings, starts their new season tomorrow at 10pm as well. What to do, what to do? Yes, I will have to DVR one, but which one will I watch live? I’m equally excited for both.
Writing about these two shows has invoked another crazy morality question for me. Why don’t I have an issue with Fitz cheating on Mellie with Olivia, but I am completely upset with Ragnar cheating on Lagertha with Princess Aslaug? I’m such a hypocritical television viewer.

A couple of blogs ago, I mentioned that I had really become a fan of the show, Black Sails, on STARZ which is about pirates. I can’t believe that I only have three more episodes of this show to watch before the season ends and I have to wait a full year for the continuation. Well, this past weekend, I found something new to watch in the interim. As I was searching for something to watch while suffering from a nasty stomach virus, I came across Vikings on The History Channel. I watched the entire ten episodes of the first season in one day! I found this show just in time too as their new season starts this week! Now, while Vikings doesn’t have the eye candy that Black Sails offers me in the glorious form of Captain Vane, I’m still enthralled by all that heathen behavior! Besides, Ragnar and Rollo are still pretty decent, just not up to Captain Vane’s stature…but I digress.
Now, I can say that I struggled more with some of the violent things that the Vikings did as opposed to the Pirates on Black Sails, and I’m trying to figure out why. They are all murderers and rapists. I assume that it is because Vikings is trying to remain true to their ways? I mean after all, it is on The History Channel so they need to be more careful with accuracy, right?
Anyway, Vikings and Pirates were the main characters in many of the historical romance books that littered my youth, so I am enjoying them being on my television screen. All that testosterone is invading my dreams!
