Retired Coverage

At some point, TV coverage comes to an end.  By that, I mean I took the show out of the regular weekly or daily rotation for whatever reason.  Want to see the stuff I finished or put on hiatus?  Check in here.

Rome

rome1652.0.0

Rome told the story of the days when the Roman Republic became the Roman Empire through the eyes of both the power players who made it happen, and a pair of soldiers, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo, who had a ground level view of it all.  Cover can be found indexed here.

Penny Dreadful

This series, set in the Victorian era, used numerous figures from Gothic horror works to tell the story of Vanessa Ives, doomed psychic.  This is what True Blood could have been if it weren’t campy or what The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie wanted to be.  Find coverage for it here.

Stranger Things

The surprise Netflix hit of 2016, a throwback to 80s sci-fi horror, where a group of kids, some plucky teens, and a desperate parent or two look into the mysterious disappearances in and around their small Indiana town.  We’ve got it covered here.

The Night Manager

A classy, pseudo-Bond adventure, adapted from the John le Carre novel of the same name, featured a cat-and-mouse spy game between Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie.  You can find the key to those write-ups here.

True Detective

HBO’s attempt at a crime anthology had one lauded first season and one reviled second season.  I covered both of them here.

The OA

Netflix’s metaphysical (for lack of a better word) series where a long lost young woman returning cured of her blindness is not the weirdest thing she claims happened to her can be found here.

Vikings

I was surprised how much Vikings grew on me.  Of the various shows I watched for the site, it went from a big “meh,” to one of my favorites. On hiatus for now, you can find the coverage here.

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

This British TV mini-series is a fun adaptation of author Susanna Clarke’s fun alternate history/fantasy novel, where magic and magicians are real in England during the Napoleonic wars.  Coverage can be found here.
