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
It’s time to go back ti Gilead, where religious extremists manage to make everyone miserable, and one woman set aside as breeding stock wants to get her daughter back and bring down the whole system while she’s at it. Maybe. Find the coverage here.
Mare of Easttown on Tuesdays
Kate Winslet is a great actress. HBO put her in another mini-series, and it’s one about a detective whose personal life is getting in the way of solving a murder. Sure, it’s been done by HBO before (see True Detective), but HBO usually also does it very well. Find 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.
Succession on Thursdays
A rich family fights each other for control of the family media empire. Adam McKay is one of the people behind all this, so you know there’s probably a satirical point to be made. Find the coverage here.
Jupiter’s Legacy on Fridays
It’s hard to live up to the legacy of a publicly beloved parent, but that’s especially true when your dad is basically Superman. Netflix’s adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic didn’t run very long, but I covered it anyway. 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.
