++ First look at the Desolation of Smaug extended edition DVD. I am ridiculously excited for this, probably more than I should be, but I've been waiting for the extended version in this film ever since I saw it in theaters. (◕‿◕✿) The only downside is that I have to wait until November, but at least once it arrives it will soothe the ache for the third and final movie the month after.
++ My ways of watching shows has drastically changed over the years. Before I used to like watching shows live, know the schedule in which they appeared in, and if the two overlapped I would record one and watch the other. Nowadays I find I just don't have that amount of energy anymore. I think having more options for watching things has helped in that department for allowing me to catch up on my own time. I also prefer binge watching shows, especially new shows, rather than waiting a week (or longer) between episodes. For my main shows I will try to watch weekly, but with others I'm willing to wait until I can marathon them straight through, even if it sometimes means they will remain on my queue for a while which unfortunately will set me back to catching up on a show that is still going. But I'm surprisingly okay with that.
