Several of my favorite shows returned this past week and quite a few of them are spooky because it’s October and that is when the spooky things are on TV, I’m told. I cuddled under the covers and watched just for you.
I wish I had a weekly talk show like this guy to geek out publicly about my favorite shows. At least I can do it here. Thanks, Fizzies.
Just as we are getting into the swing of things with the new fall season, two American Pastimes are getting in the way. One is baseball taking over a good portion of the Fox schedule this month. The other is the past time of watching grown men argue with each other on stage while not saying anything at all. Hurray for Presidential campaign season! Sigh…
(See… they aren’t happy about it either. *sad trombone*)
But try as they might, baseball and politics can’t take over everything. So here are a few highlights from the week. Continue reading
Another week of TV in the books. Not as many shows premiered as last week, but with The CW starting to roll out it’s lineup, DVR schedules are starting to get interesting. Mine may wind up going on strike soon. These boys are confused or upset about it. I can’t tell.
Here’s a look at some of the things that stood out for me this week… Continue reading
What’s up Fizmarble readers? Do you guys have a name yet? Fizzies? You should work on that, as a group.
Anyway, with the start of the new Fall Television Season, I thought I’d start a weekly column with a few of my favorite moments of the week. Or least favorite, as the case may be. Just whatever stood out as especially crazy/funny/heartbreaking/important etc etc. The shows will change week to week.
Now, I have very specific rules about spoilers, which I won’t get into here. But here are the basics – this round up will have spoilers, after the jump. Never in the headline, and never in this section. But once you go inside, there will be some. I will put the title of every show I am discussing in bold, so if you haven’t watched, just avert your eyes and scroll along to the next show and come back later. Sound good? Wonderful. Then let’s get to this.
In just four more days the highly anticipated Season 5 premiere of Sons of Anarchy will be hitting the airwaves on FX. This show never disappoints to bring the intensity and drama. I’ve had a chance to screen the first two episodes (humblebrag?) so I thought I’d give you some little tidbits to whet your appetite and get you through til Tuesday!
Check out my thoughts after the jump…
As the fall season eeks closer, it’s time to start thinking about what television shows you want to add to your viewing schedule. For those who enjoy comic books, one of the obvious choices would be Arrow on The CW. And thanks to a new Geek-tastic (yeah, I said that) casting announced today, that choice became even more obvious.
Before we get into the article, let me take a minute and apologize for my sad pun of a title. To be fair, you should all be thanking me because I could have used a pun involving the word “quiver” and I think we all know that would have gone horribly awry.
Anyway… 2012 is officially the year of the archer. By the time autumn rolls around guys and gals alike will be clamouring to get their hands on a bow and arrow and take aim at a target. Preferably a stationary inanimate object, and not, say, their sibling or spouse. But either way, chances are a good portion of the population will be ready to draw back that string. Continue reading
