With the end of Game of Thrones, I needed something new to watch on the TV. Or, maybe, multiple things.
Anyhoo, here’s my current weekly project. Each weekday at 6PM Eastern/5 Central, a new write up will appear covering one episode apiece until either I lose interest or the show ends, whichever comes first.
Here is your guide to each show.
The Queen’s Gambit on Mondays
Enter the world of 1960s era competitive chess where Anya Taylor-Joy’s Beth Harmon’s greatest obstacle to becoming a female grandmaster in a more sexist age may be…herself! An acclaimed mini-series from Netflix that somehow made chess exciting television? How can that be? Find the coverage here.
Lovecraft Country on Tuesdays
For African Americans in the middle part of the 20th century, what might be scarier: black magic and the monsters that comes with it or the violent racism of the rest of the country? There may be no easy answer to those questions. Regardless, HBO’s series tried. See the coverage here.
Gotham on Wednesdays
Jimmy Impossible kinda wondered why I didn’t watch this show when it was on. Short answer: I tried and didn’t like what I saw despite being a huge Batman fan. Well, let’s try it again now that it’s over. Find the coverage here.
Ozark on Thursdays
Laundering money under the threat of death for a Mexican drug cartel is hard enough, but the locals will just make things for the Byrdes even harder. Netflix’s crime drama sure did grab a lot of attention, so why not mine? Find the coverage here.
Vikings on Fridays
The last of my original five shows, coming to a close either on Amazon Prime Video in 2020 or the History Channel in 2021, will the show that killed off all its original characters end well when there are only some bland ones left. Find the coverage here.
Additionally, Simpsons every weekday at noon central.
I mean, I can’t possibly finish this particular project. I’ll quit sooner or later, right? Right? Oh well. It is The Simpsons, and everyone should know what they’re all about by this point.
Or maybe Doctor Who at noon central?
Well, when The Simpsons isn’t available, then we’ll get some Doctor Who.
And Star Trek on weekends?
At this point, why not? I apparently don’t leave my house anymore. Here’s Star Trek.
TV show coverage that is finished or on hiatus has to go somewhere.
