J: Week 1 (2013 Preview)

A few things I'm looking forward to in 2013:

Television - 
  1. Downton Abbey. Starts this week, yay! I'm semi-spoiled on what happens at the end of the season (I hate when casting decisions have to dictate story) but I'm excited anyway.
  2. Returning midseason shows: Community and Cougar Town.
  3. New midseason shows I have some interest in: The Carrie Diaries (CW), Cult (CW), Deception (NBC), Zero Hour (ABC), Top of the Lake (Sundance - I'm pretty sure I don't have this channel anymore so not sure how I'll check it out, but it's set and filmed in New Zealand!)
 Movies -
  1. The Great Gatsby. It's a little concerning that it was supposed to be released in time for this year's Oscar race but it's gotten pushed to next summer? Still looking forward to it nonetheless.
  2. Star Trek Into Darkness. I thought the first one was good though I wasn't like, obsessed with it. Trailer looks pretty darn great though.
  3. Ender's Game. I really really really hope it's good.

A show set in NZ?! I'll see about DVRing it. Maybe we can watch it together. :)

HAHAHA, i just looked at the IMDB page for Ender's Game. harrison ford is playing Col. Graff, but an actor named Han Soto is playing "Col Graff's aide." no way that can be a coincidence!
