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.

Parks and Recreation - Season 5

It’s no secret that my love for television extends beyond many of my other loves.  These include video games, movies, drawing, books, and comic books.  Doing these recaps are my favorite because it allows you to share with everyone about your favorite shows and gives others a chance to chime in their opinions on what I’m missing out on!  Trust me, these kind of things actually happen because it’s because of my readers that I got into Modern Family!

Anywho, Winter/Spring television is very much started and some shows only have a week or two left before their finales, but I figured now would be a good time to recap on what’s happened and why you should pick up on the shows I’m watching!  11 Shows this season, can you keep up?

There are several ‘Annie Vs. Britta Debates’ on the internet.  By Annie Vs. Britta debates, I mean take two female characters of any show and deciding who I would rather be in a relationship with.  While this seems pitiful at first, you can’t help but have thought this about any show you watched. The choices includes personality, looks, attitude, etc.  I read a cool article that brought up 10 cases that should be looked at here.  Now I’ll admit that I haven’t seen all 10 of the shows, but I do have strong opinions on the ones I have seen.  It’s also a reasonable excuse to post pictures of my favorite characters of some of my favorite tv shows at their best moments.

Check out my breakdown below.  Minor Spoilers About.

I love television.  But I sometimes don’t realize not everyone is as fortunate as I am to have access to all the television.  Happy Endings, Jon Stewart, Louis CK, HBO, and more is technically all American Television.  Morning Glow has compiled a list of 20 gifs that encompass the best of American TV well.  Be sure to check out the list and if you like even half of the shows on the list, you should check out the rest because they’lll likely fit your taste as well.

American TV is the Best TV

When I first tried to get into this show, I actually had to Google the difference between the US Marshall Services and the difference between the FBI, State, and Local Police.  You’d think at first glance they’d solve crimes like the people on Dexter, CSI, Law and Order, generic crime show.  But the US Marshalls deal specifically with tracking down federal fugitives and escorting government-important personnel.  So here I am, all caught up with the shenanigans of US Deputy Marshall Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) and criminal mastermind Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins).  Givens is a wise cracking, cowboy hat wearing, southern twang talking, Han Solo-esque men of men who tracks down the baddies while protecting the ones he cares for with his favorite pistol by his side and a conflicted sense of morality.  Crowder is a spiritually conflicted man who has used his wit to slither his way through the crime rings of Harlan County, Kentucky, as he tries to take back the town his family once owned. Combined with cultural insight to southern lifestyles, an amazing cast, and a surprisingly central and amazing storyline, Raylan Givens and company give us one of the most badass shows on air.

Raylan Givens has recently been transferred from the US Deputy Marshall service in Miami back to his hometown in Kentucky for seemingly gunning down a drug lord in plain sight in the light of day.  The chief is hesitant to add him to his team for Givens’s unorthodox and trigger happy methods, but can’t deny that Givens brings results when it comes to tracking down Kentucky’s most wanted.  As Givens returns home, he encounters his criminally estranged father, the step mother who raised him, a sour ex-wife, an old crush, and his old friend from his coal mine who has turned into one of Kentucky’s most dangerous terrorists, Boyd Crowder.  Raylan deals with himself, these people, and Kentucky’s most wanted as he gunslings everywhere from Lexington to Frankfurt to Harlan County.  Minor spoilers ahead, keep reading for more detail.

With numerous people constantly smacking me on the hands for not watching one of the greatest TV shows ever, I finally got into watching F/X’s Archer.  Once again, I’m kicking myself in the ass for not finding this comedic gem sooner.  I have said this about many shows, but I’ll gladly stand behind saying Archer is one of the best things on television.  The quick witted, often self-referring jokes, the stellar cast, and one of the most lovable douche bags on TV, Archer has every element to be a casual comedy to keep up with.  It doesn’t matter if you’re alone in a room or in circled by friends, Archer will surely bring you the laughs every Thursday night.

Sterling Archer (brilliantly voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) is feared by all governments for being the most dangerous field agent out there.  He’s got all the best qualities of James Bond: deadly with a pistol, a taste for fancy drinks, and a tendency to flirt with all sorts of women.  The difference?  He’s completely aware of how awesome he is and selfishly rubs it in everyone’s face.  Working for the government agency ISIS, with his alcoholic mother (Jessica Walter) at the helm, Archer engages in different missions each episode.  With the help (or without in most cases) of his co-workers, he always manages to finish the mission.  Or at least, comes out of it alive.
