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.

The Handmaid’s Tale on Mondays



Margaret Atwood’s distopian novel was adapted to this critically-acclaimed series, where religious conservatives and taken over the United States and it isn’t good to be a woman, to put it mildly.  Check out The Handmaid’s Tale reviews here.

The Night Of on Tuesdays



A harrowing mini-series where a young man is taken in by the criminal justice system for a crime he (probably) didn’t commit, gets chewed up, and spat back out again.  Coverage can be found here.

Deadwood on Wednesdays


Deadwood, South Dakota:  where desperate men and women seek their fortunes, and a gunfight can solve a problem as easily as a conversation.  See coverage for HBO’s popular Western series here.

House of Cards UK on Thursdays


Netflix may have made the Americanized version a big hit, but the British original is its own animal, a series of three different mini-series chronicling the rise and fall of Francis Urquhart.  See the write-ups here.

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.
