True-Detective-101

Spring television is in full force and a plethora of shows have premiered while others have continued.  If I had to choose between hype for Fall 2013 television and Spring 2014 television, just writing about this line up makes me believe that Spring 2014 television just might trump whatever Fall 2013 aired [and that might include Breaking Bad…].  I say this because a lot of two-season (Fall to Spring) shows begin doing their crazy stunts and plot twists during sweeps week as  their seasons wrap up.  This means shit hits the fan for multiple shows, sometimes all at once, creating some of the memorable television shows of the year.  This week’s post will reflect on what’s been aired so far as well as a small preview of what’s to come in the following weeks.

It’s winter break from my University which means I’m home and have nothing to do.  So naturally I watch as much television as can be permitted.  My long list of television is ever expanding and I spend more than a normal amount of time trying to shorten it, but if often gets longer and longer.  This winter break is a time for shortening the list considerably before I get responsibilities again [ugh, School].  So here’s my list of TV to watch, I often update what I’m watching in my Twitter, so be sure to follow it if you wanna chime in some suggestions as I live tweet these sum-bitches.

Here they are below in no particular order

1. You Have No Clue What is Happening

Part of the fun of many good horror tales is that you have no clue what is going on. American Horror Story plays this card to perfection. It is fascinating to wonder why such experiences are so appealing to people. Aren’t we somehow intrinsically fearful of what we so not understand? Why did I read every Hardy Boys book as a child? I can honestly say that for the first half of American Horror Story I had zero clue what was going on and was enthralled for every second. Plot holes aside I was impressed with the way AHS resolved the story arc and showed how very few of the happenings were truly random. This is the mark of great storytelling. (more…)

I’ve been a subscriber to Entertainment Weekly since 2009 I believe.  I actually do read it [most of the time] from cover to end.  It’s absolutely one of my favorite magazines for several reasons.  1) It’s not so much a gossip magazine that focuses on the most uninteresting people that so many people find interesting.  2) They cover two industries I love dearly: movies and television.  3) They get the most absurdly early looks at upcoming projects such as pictures or interviews. And finally 4) In the past they’ve introduced me to some of the most beloved shows I’ve come to know.

Sure not all their stories are the best [I can’t tell you how many times K-Stew and R-Pats have been on the damn cover and I groaned], but I’ve compiled a list of 5 pieces of pop culture [coincidentally all TV shows] that, while always hearing they were great, I didn’t actually start paying attention to until I read an article on Entertainment Weekly.  And surprisingly enough, they weren’t all cover stories.  Read on below for the full Scoop.

Fall TV is upon us and it nothing is more exciting than scheduling days of the week with my favorite tv shows to look forward to.  The glorious return of some favorites such as Parks and Recreation, Happy Endings, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia are sure to make the weeks better and then Sunday night is filled with madness as well.  Not football madness, but the 9:00 and 10:00 spot will be heavily competed for when it comes to Dexter, The Walking Dead, and Boardwalk Empire.  How do you guys cope with so much television?  Don’t you dare say “I don’t watch it”, because that’s inexcusable.  Just kidding, but anywho, I’ve compiled the trailers and expectations of some of my favorite shows, so check ’em out below!  The spoilers in the drama season are likely to be huge, so tread lightly!

I love finding other actors in obscure roles before they reach their ‘big break’.  The unforgettable Tate Langdon (Evan Peters) paid his dues just one full season earlier at the beginning of Michael Scott’s last season, where he played his nephew.  A spoiled brat, Michael Scott was forced to spank him in front of his co-workers.  But I bet Michael Scott didn’t know, is that his nephew would then go about mass murdering tons of people a year later.

American Horror Story premiered last year on FX and told the tale of family moving into a haunted house.  This haunted house has the ghosts of the people killed within its walls for the past 80+ years.  Throughout the times, there are ghosts from all time periods each with their reasons to hang around.  I’ve compiled below a list of my favorites in no particular order.  Potential spoilers below.

As many of you know, I’ve recently taken Terra Nova off of my TV queue this fall.  So to fill its shoes, I’ve been heavily recommended that FX’s American Horror Story is a juicy and horrifying tale of a family in a cursed house.  The final push to start this series is when the latest Entertainment Weekly arrived when its two major characters and a man in a rubber suit were on the cover.  So after watching the first episode, I literally had my hand over my face the entire fifty minutes and nearly successfully shat my pants .  The show is graphic, tense, and even highly sexual, something that my TV queue is lacking [Dexter can only have so much blood, gore, and sex].  And I haven’t regretted starting it ever since.
