I am starting to get that anxious feeling that my favorite series’ are coming close to the end of their seasons. Last week didn’t have a new episode of Fringe, but there aren’t very many left, though I am very excited about the announcement of a special guest star for the finale (click link at your own risk of spoilage).
But mostly I am here to share this series of PSAs from Fox featuring the cast of Fringe. Mostly the supporting cast, with the exception of Joshua Jackson who, if I am going to be honest, is currently on my top 5.
I am pleased to see network television spreading the message of environmentalism. Learning about Earth Day as a young teenager eventually led me to modern Paganism.
In other television news, BBC America is closing in on the season finale of Being Human. I will be sad to see it go, but am so excited about the newest season of Doctor Who, which will be aired in the US without delay this season.
I am sadly missing the Starz series Camelot because I don’t have that station on my cable, but I have set my DVR for the epic fanstasy seriesGame of Thrones on HBO. It is sure to have broad, sweeping magical themes that might interest our community. At the very least, I imagine it will be pretty. Game of Thrones and Doctor Who might just make up for Fringe and Being Human ending for the season.
On the reality TV side of things, The Fabulous Beekman Boys has returned for their second season. There is nothing inherently Pagan about this show at all but I am inspired by the way they are working toward their dreams. It encourages me that I can work toward mine as well. I am also oddly inspired by the show Sister Wives. I am ambiguous about their lifestyle choices personally, but I am really interested in the theme of this season where the family is choosing to be public in spite of all the possible fall out. Essentially, they are coming out and I encourage anyone and everyone to be public about their lifestyle.
As a complete and total non-TV related side note, I have recently discovered a beer that I failed to mention in the latest Magic of Beer post. I wanted to pass this on before the season passed me by. As I mentioned in that post, I don’t like hoppy beer because of the overwhelming bitter flavor in most of them. I spent so much time leading up to writing that article avoiding Pale Ales that I don’t know that I really experienced then. At my birthday party over the weekend, we bought the spring pack of Magic Hat and in it was their Number 9 Not Quite Pale Ale. I gave it a shot and fell in love. If you have been avoiding hoppy beers like I have, give this one a try. It is pretty smooth and even and worth a taste.
