I closed out 2013 with a December that consisted of 20 viewings. Of those 20 viewings, only 8 were “first viewings” and 3 were trips to the theater. It was a pretty mellow way to close out the year. It was actually the opposite of 2012’s stats, where I watched any and every thing that I could.
Stay tuned to the blog and podcast for a rundown of not only my year in movies but also Mike and Tiny’s year. For now, here’s my rundown of the highs and lows of December 2013. Continue reading

This week was huge for The Obsessive Viewer Podcast. For starters, I edited this week’s episode in a new program that is going to be far less problematic than Garageband and, as I type this, I’m expecting some sweet new podcasting equipment to be delivered. But most exciting is the fact that we signed up for IndyPopCon. We’ll have more information down the road but, for now, we’re very excited.
This week is Space Movies Part 1! I hope you like it.

Here’s this week’s installment of everyone’s favorite feature: “The Obsessive Viewer’s Week in TV!” This week was a big one. As far as new episodes, we had the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad, a plot building episode of Boardwalk Empire, plus the premieres of How I Met Your Mother, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Mindy Project.
In the Rewatches, Catch Ups and Independent Viewings category, I finally finished up season 2 of The Newsroom, made some great progress on the recently added to Netflix 2nd season of New Girl and an intensely timed rewatch of How I Met Your Mother’s 8th season.
I also decided against watching the Emmys and let my ridiculous new habit of weekly HBO blu-ray purchases get the better of me. Read on and let me know what you think. Continue reading
