Tom’s TV Pages

GG What We're Watching

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.

American Gods on Mondays

 

 

Based on the popular Neil Gaiman novel, this Starz series covers a war between the old gods and the new, with some unlucky mortals stuck in-between.  This is the world of American Gods.

Black Mirror on Tuesdays

 

A creepy, technology-based anthology series, the British show Black Mirror posits a world where technology does impressive things, but the people who handle it are the real problem.

The Wire on Wednesdays

Often hailed as one of the best TV shows ever made, The Wire took a realistic look at the death throes of a major American city and questioned the costs of the War on Drugs.

House of Cards on Thursdays

A Southern Congressman is slighted by a new President and swears political revenge.  Power moves and plays abound in House of Cards, the drama that perhaps put Netflix’s original programming on the map.

Gravity Falls on Fridays

 

Dipper Pines found a book that relates the weird stuff in the town he’s staying in for the summer.  Mabel Pines won a pig.  Their Grunkle Stan just wants to make money off anyone who stops at the Mystery Shack.  It’s Gravity Falls, the fun and funny show about weird stuff happening in a little town in the middle of nowhere.

 

And, of course, The 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.

TV show coverage that is finished or on hiatus has to go somewhere.
