July Question Meme: Day Eleven  
Asked by hanorganaas:

Is there any show or movie your FLIST made you curious to watch?

Absolutely. I have to say unless it's something I preview myself, half of the things I end up watching or checking out is mostly due to recommendations and being intrigued after seeing people talk about it enough, especially on Tumblr where there are so many things reblogged from various fandoms I'm not part of and yet some of those things either look like something I'd be into or make me very curious about in general. The beauty of the Internet is getting introduced to things you otherwise wouldn't have known about.

Most recently it has been Sense8 and Killjoys (which I still have to sit my butt down and watch), and then Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries was thanks a recommendation on Tumblr. Same with Carmilla, Welcome To Night Vale, and recently with Mad Max: Fury Road after all the positive reactions from it. And there are just so much more, of course.

I feel like I should like Miss Fisher more than I did, after all the raving about it I've seen. I watched the first episode and then just didn't care enough to watch the rest. *shrugs*

The first ep of Killjoys didn't do much for me but I'll probably give it at least a couple more as a trial run.

I would say give it a few more episodes, because it does get more engaging, and more plotty further into the season. Though if nothing has hooked you by then, then it's probably not the show for you. For me, I was immediately drawn to it from the first episode because Phryne was simply magnificent and Dot was super adorable, and the development that happens throughout the first season alone was beautiful to witness. For me, it took me by surprise because I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did, but it's just a fun show with fabulous women and gorgeous outfits and sets.

I'm going to keep an open-mind with Killjoys, since I usually give a show several episodes to decide whether it's something I'm willing to continue watching or not.

I think the problem was that I didn't like Phryne, I don't know, something about her just put me off, and then I felt guilty about it, like I needed to feel bad about it because everyone kept saying how flawless she was. But I'll leave the show on my list for a second look if I have a chance. I never used to give shows just one episode but there's so much good TV on now that sometimes I need to be a bit more ruthless about my time!

Yep same, especially when I see shows reblogged on tumblr that catch my eye. Mind you it's often it's a case of noting that particular show looks worth checking out, and then never getting around to it *g*

Yeah, and depending on how I obtain something it can take quite a bit for me to start watching. Movies are pretty easy, but shows can be tricky. It took several months to get the first season of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries from the library. And even then I have to be in the right mood to binge watch a thing, you know?

Miss Fisher, yes yes yes!
