Welcome to The OC, the beginning!

I love a whatsapp group conversation that just starts to spiral into weird. On Tuesday night this week we began a conversation where someone had made a recipient called "Trailer Park Pie" and had too much so was inviting us to join in the eating. Through a series of links, a little while later this had led to 4 of us agreeing to do a group rewatch and discussion of The OC. 

We have a viewing schedule of 1 episode per night (this gives the chance to do an omnibus style catchup at the weekend if needed) and a brand new whatsapp group set up where we can discuss the episodes called "Welcome to the OC, bitch!" And it all starts on Friday... Probably!

This is our public forum to share our discussions / arguments on a number of topics such as: 

Rich people problems
Kiki's drink watch
Fashion crimes
Julie Cooper evil bitch
Self ritcheous rantings of Sandy Choen
What to eat in The OC
Pop culture by Seth
Uh oh, who is Julie sleeping with now?
Ryan's roots
The JCNC shade
When the music meets the story

So much drama coming... We can't wait!

Running Thoughts: The Walking Dead - 4x02

My stream of thoughts while watching The Walking Dead continues. My instant thoughts written while watching the walking dead and later edited for spelling, grammar and general nonsense...

If you have not seen this episode yet, do not read on, lots of spoilers ahead for episode 4x02

The Walking Dead 4x02 - "Infected"

Most of the time I watch and type at the same time pausing when I need to, today I was eating my dinner when I sat down to write this, so I let it run until I finished eating... big mistake. The new show runner has really stepped up his game and seems to be as much a fan of the suspense and the gore as we are. I am now going to rewind those 8 mins and watch again from the start typing as I go! Warning not for the squeamish!

Running Thoughts: The Walking Dead - 4x01

My stream of thoughts while watching the walking dead continues for another season. My instant thoughts written while watching the walking dead and later edited for spelling, grammar and general nonsense...

If you have not seen this episode yet, do not read on, lots of spoilers ahead for episode 4x01

The Walking Dead 4x01 - "30 Days Without Accident"

After last season's disappointing finale where The Guv'nor lived, I am hoping for a few things this episode. Firstly I am hoping that Daryl and Carol are finally getting it on, I hope that Carl is still the little psychopath I have grown to love and I hope that there will be plenty of blood and gore. If the title is anything to go by then we know that this will probably be the case!! Yay!

Autumn 13: The New Shows

Yay!! It's time for the autumn schedule to start again and there are so many new shows to sink my teeth into. Unusually for me I have had not devoured all of the trailers for the new shows before they aired, so I was going in a little blind to most of them.

I think at this stage I have seen at least the first episode of almost all the new shows and here are my quick summaries with longer ones of my favourites to come...


This may have had an interesting premise on paper, but in reality I just don’t care. I think it would have been mildly more interesting if the whole family being kidnapped thing had been resolved at the beginning of the first episode and then the rest of the series was looking at a new America with the American People being the hostages under a new regime that had been forced upon them. Sort of a dirtier Scandal! Now that’s something I could get behind, this hostages however I will not be watching any more of.

The times they are a changin'

It has happened very slowly, but what I have been talking about recently has been moving away from books and more towards TV. I have been finding it difficult to read as much as I have in previous years. With that I have decided that I am going to change my focus to the TV I like to watch in my free time... because I like to watch a lot of TV. Comedy, drama, mystery, teen, reality... I am very unbiased where TV is involved.

So from here on there will slowly be more and more changes to this blog. I have changed the title from Lost In A YA Book to Fangirl Watching and slowly there will be more and more changes. I will still talk about books, because I love them, but I will have a larger focus on sharing the joy I have in TV.

So, stay tuned...

Seen on the shelves of an Edinburgh bookshop

I love reading the little review tabs below a book on the shelves in the bookshop, especially when they look like this...
