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.
The Shield was a police drama on FX that was ahead of the curve for its time. It was an HBO or Showtime level program on a network and was one of the shows that really helped FX break out. I used to watch it with Fizmarbler Orion Williams every week. It was shocking and the main character and his crew was not a good guy. He did what he had to do and sometimes that made him do some pretty bad things. It felt real and it was always interesting to watch the rich characters live their rollercoaster lives. This show was the creation of Shawn Ryan who also helped create Lie To Me and the new drama Last Resort. Sons of Anarchy creator, Kurt Sutter was one of the primary writers for the show as well. Each season on DVD is going for $10.65 which is 61% off the normal price. This is only going on for a short time so if you want to take advantage of the deal so now.

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…
I know where I will be on Septermber 11th at 10PM. Butt in seat and eyes on TV as Sons of Anarchy returns for its fifth season on the FX channel. Last season changed things in some really big ways for most everybody. It’s a fresh beginning with new conflicts, new motivations and new faces finding their way to Charming.
