1. Death Comes to Pemberley
If you're as Austen-obsessed as I have been since a pre-teen girl, this is a must-watch. It's currently available free to stream on the PBS website so get your butt over there and watch it now! Death Comes to Pemberley is a novel by P. D. James, and now they've adapted it into a Masterpiece movie. What more could you want? Also, for all you Doctor Who fans (more on that later), Jenna Coleman plays a perfect (and I mean perfect) Lydia, so don't miss it.

3. Taylor Swift's Blank Space video
(embedded video...link to it here)
Yeah, it's buzzing around the internet like...well, a Taylor Swift music video. It's worth a watch though because it so perfectly plays into and against every single TSwizzle stereotype ever. Her music video director is a super genius for getting her to do this. (Or whosever job it is to do that...I'm a little foggy on the deets.) Also, this article explains why and how she does what she does and it's definitely worth a read - thank you to an old priest friend on Facebook for sharing it with me.
4. Jimmy Fallon + Bradley Cooper Laugh Fest
(another embedded video...link here here here)
Okay, you've also probably seen this already - it's a little old. But if you haven't taken the time to watch 2 grown, famous men laugh ridiculously cutely for approximately 10 solid minutes, it is worth your while. Talk about a mood lightener! Jimmy's laugh comes in a close second to Amy Poehler's laugh out of laughs-I-love-of-famous-people (also Kevin from the Office and Tina Fey are on that list, it's a weird obsession, don't judge me) so this video is pure gold. Or if you want, save it for a rainy/snowy day mood lifter.

6. Once Upon a Time
Yep, I'm going to write more about my current TV obsession. (You've been warned.) Now, Kendra and I agree about a lot of things...and I found out again this week that includes how wonderful OUAT is. Go read this recent post of hers and then click "Start Watching" on Netflix. I'm pretty sure you won't regret it.
7. Doctor Who
Series 8 has ended - cue sad music. And although I haven't season the two-part season finale episodes yet (I'm looking at you, David), I'm a little disappointed with this season. Perhaps the finales will redeem it, but for me this has been a rather lackluster time for the Doctor and Clara. Now this isn't to say that you shouldn't be watching Doctor Who (you definitely should!) but just to say that I hope series 9 picks up a little bit and brings back some of the writing and characterization we all love so much. //end sad rant
Got anything else out there on the internet I've missed? Hit me up in the comments! (And head to This Ain't the Lyceum this week for more Quick Takes!)
Until next week -
