Thursday Threesome: Three Shows I'm Watching Instead of Doing NaNoWriMo Rewrites

Among the excuses I've given for not doing rewrites on my NaNoWriMo project include not feeling so hot, the baby, work, the amount of books I have to read, the amount of books I want to read, depression, anger, pure joy, and the fact that we don't currently own a cat.

The real answer is less exciting: there's just a lot of good television distracting me lately. Yeah, True Detective is ruining my life, but that's not really the full issue. Truly, I've discovered two new shows, and I've had a favorite return, that has essentially changed my viewing landscape in the short term and is distracting me from more useful endeavors. So, well, let's ruin your free time, too.

The Book Was Better Episode 76: Terminator 2! (with guest host Lizzy Unpronounceable!)

This week we finely-tuned future people travel back to the turbulent nineties where we set our sights on the novelization of robo-Arnie blockbuster Terminator 2! Joining me through time is adorable guest host Lizzy Unpronounceable who you may remember helped me battle the sickening forces of Shaun Hutson's explicit sex-fuelled adaption of the original Terminator. Now, this book isn't quite so sexy... and yet we still found it to be relatively sexy. Hasta la vista! Whatever that means!
