I recently started a new job, and things have just been insanely packed and hectic for me! I finally have a millisecond of downtime right now. I completely failed in terms of sticking with regular viewings and write-ups of Mad Men and Parks & Rec,and I apologize! But starting in July, I’m looking to do the following:

  • watch and write about Girls !
  • Talk about how this past year in TV could have been better for women/girls
  • do a full-recap of shows I started watching and then severely neglected (Mad Men, Parks & Rec, etc.)

Any other ideas? Leave ’em below!


Couch Potatoes is undergoing a change…

As I’m sure you can tell, lately posting and activity on the site has been pretty lackluster – both because I’ve been obscenely swamped and because there has been a lack of interest/conversation in posts! I’ve been racking my brain and visiting other sites to see what posts are successful for them, and the following is the new plan I have come up with:

  1. CPWAC will now focus primarily on writing posts on new episodes of female-centric/feminist-thought-provoking TV shows, including:
  • Parks & Recreation
  • Mad Men
  • 2 Broke Girls
  • 30 Rock
  • Smash
  • Pan Am
  • Pretty Little Liars
  • and select episodes of shows like How I Met Your Mother and a smattering of reality TV offerings

2. Over the summer and during hiatuses from new episodes, we will focus on re-watching a season of an old TV show, or watch an earlier season of a show we’ve recently gotten into (i.e.; Mad Men).

To start off the new format this week, look out for a piece on an episode of Toddlers & Tiaras, an episode from late in the last season of Mad Men, and posts on the shows listed above!
