With so many shows on broadcast TV, cable and the internet, it’s impossible to keep up with all everything. But now that the Emmy nominations have been announced, those options have been helpfully narrowed down for many of our forum posters.
So how are they planning to spend their time between now and the Emmys on September 20? Read some of their sample comments below, and click here to join the discussion.
Gone_Guy: First on my to-do list: Finish “Empire” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” I only have three episodes of “Empire” left … The one enjoyable aspect of it, Taraji P. Henson, was recognized with a nomination. Even though I’ve seen her two best episodes according to posters (“Pilot” and “Our Dancing Days”), I still plan to complete the last three episodes.
CanadianFan: For the first time ever, I have seen all of the eligible episodes of every comedy and drama series nominee. I was afraid “Empire” would break that streak. I’ll watch the episode submissions that I am unfamiliar with.
ETPhoneHome: Going to really try to get through the rest of “Grace and Frankie,” going to check out “The Last Man on Earth,” going to catch up on “Mad Men” and “Better Call Saul,” going to watch the last “Orphan Black” episode (imminently) and “Empire.” Other than those, I’m going to stick to submissions for the shows I’m not up on.
Atypical: Starting the binge on “The Honorable Woman” very soon!
Halo_Insider: I think I might just try to watch all of the submissions, rather than binge the shows all the way through. Oof. There’s so much TV!
KylieistBoi: I’ll watch every Limited Series and TV Movie nominees, except for “Freak Show” which I’ve already watched. Except for “Louie” I’ve watched all of the Comedy nominees … I’ll start watching “Inside Amy Schumer” considering the force she’s become.
Bradderz: I will finish “Bloodline” (which is brilliant, thank you academy for nominating Chandler and Mendelsohn), I’m starting to enjoy “Orange is the New Black” much more and I will start both “Ray Donovan” and “The Newsroom.” Oh and “Orphan Black.” A fun summer of TV ahead!
eastwest: Was going to make this year a focus on the movies and miniseries, but with the unique and strong competition on the television side, I’ll have to make some space for that. Of the shows I watch, I need to finish “Orphan Black.” I’ll look at “Homeland” just because the hype was in a way confirmed by the industry. “Getting On” looks like something I would like, so that too.
