Heather, Watch the Last Season!
I have this really bad habit of not finishing series, I have a whole list where I'm only 1 or 2 seasons from finishing because I feel the need to "save" them... well it's time to fix that. I'll either be outright watching the season(s) I'm missing, or if it has been long enough I'll restart and decide if its something I'm even still interested in.

Potential List: (this is embarrassingly not even all the shows I have that qualify)
Finish:
  • HTGAWM s.6
  • Speechless s.4
  • Fresh Off the Boat s.6
  • Fleabag s.2
  • You're the Worst s.5
  • 30 Rock s.7
Continue Rewatch:
  • Happy Endings
  • Gossip Girl
Restart:
  • Alias
  • Chuck
  • Friday Night Lights


May 7th
1. Alias s.1 "Truth Be Told"

Notes
Spoiler:
*Counting archival footage of Audrey Hepburn from Roman Holiday featured in You, Me and Dupree was admittedly tangential, but frankly, seeing that footage while slogging through a film as mediocre as Dupree made me yearn for something with Audrey Hepburn to cleanse my palate. I very nearly chose to revisit Roman Holiday, but wanted to prioritize first time viewings; an ironic notion given that I had already seen Dupree but wanted to clear it from my un-logged list.

**I didn't realize until I was almost an hour into RED 2 before I remembered I'd already used Bruce Willis as the link between G.I. Joe: Retaliation and 12 Monkeys. I needed to get from Legends of the Fall to The Manchurian Candidate in time for a live stream event on the Criterion Channel hosted by Jake Tapper and didn't have time to work out another path. Making matters worse, when I got to The First Deadly Sin, I discovered that Willis's only presence consists of being an extra in a single shot, with no dialogue, and his face largely obscured by a hat.

***On 5/24, I revisited Spy Hard and Mission: Impossible for the 25th anniversary of those opening in theaters. As there were no actors in both of those films, this imposed a disruption of the chain. Ultimately, I decided to disregard that double feature and resume the daisy chain from The Manchurian Candidate to Green Mansions by way of Henry Silva.
