I don’t normally do a Top 10 anything at the end of the year. Mainly because my lists resemble so much of what’s scattered around the web and a lot of these lists can be redundant, which makes it kind of pointless in my eyes. However, it was a pretty good year for television and there were quite a few things that I was very pleased with. As well as a couple of things I wasn’t. Since the world didn’t end on the 21st like the Mayans predicted, I figured why not go against my own grain a bit, and jot down my top 10 TV hits…..and the two misses. Yes, these are ranked in the appropriate order according to the world of me.
Now that the holidays are but a memory, it’s time to get back to business. TV business that is. Television pretty much comes to a grinding halt during the festive season and aside from the holiday specials, we’re forced to watch other things. Which isn’t really a bad thing per se, but it makes for difficult decision-making. Should I stream this show I’ve been sitting on for ages or should I watch that movie. You get the idea.
Since there is a whole lot of TV coming back in the following weeks, I’ve done a bit of a round-up. Below is a listing of shows (not every single one) returning from their winter break, and shows that are just starting. Everything is listed by premier date to make it easy.
You ever have those characters in television shows, movies or even books that you just wanted to beat the crap out of? Then there are the characters that are vile and horrible human beings but you can’t help that you actually root for them. And then there are those who you know you should hate, but for whatever reason you just can’t. I threw together a list of my top seven, in no particular order, hates, loves and love to hates. Starting with…for me anyway, the one character that I had such a deep-rooted hatred for, it made me want to throw the book and not finish it. Yes it’s petty and immature, but hey, I couldn’t help it. Read on to find out who it is.
Happy April Fools Day everyone. And Happy Friday as well. Today’s Goodie Wrap is short and sweet. I’ve had a bit of a crazy week, but it’s been productive. Thankfully! Now I’m preparing to hit up WonderCon tomorrow. It’s my first so I’m not quite sure what to expect, but I hope to have some good stuff to share with you all next week. If it’s anything like a Star Trek convention, it’ll be an excellent source for people watching. And now onward to the business at hand.
Good morning and what can I tell ya…..
It’s Friday again and you know what that means! Time for the weekend and time for another wrap up. It’s been a bit of a hectic week and I’m glad the weekend is upon us. I’m thinking of hitting one, maybe two movies this weekend so that’s always a good time….until someone tried to sit right on top of you that is. Anyhoo….let’s wrap up this week shall we?
Tonight we see the return of Raylan Givens and F/X’s awesome show Justified. I’m super excited for this because I love this show. Actually, it’s shows like this that make me sad that F/X only runs about 13 episodes per season. It feels like it’s been gone for ages. Anyway, it’s back tonight and with it brings Timothy Olyphant and what I call his smoldering anger. This got me thinking about other actors who have this quality. That innate ability to make the viewing feel the rage that is boiling just beneath the surface. I guess you could call it a quiet anger.
