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
There are all kinds of gods in America, and they are competing for power and worshipers. Will the old gods of forgotten pantheons win out over the new gods of the 21st century? Well, I don’t know. The show got canceled after three seasons. But I’m still covering it right now. Find the coverage here.
The Plot Against America on Tuesdays
This HBO mini-series, that sure does feel rather timely, depicts an alternate history where a fascist Charles Lindbergh is elected president and Winona Ryder dates John Turturro. 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.
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.
The Haunting of Bly Manor on Fridays
Mike Flanagan’s The Haunting of Hill House was an excellent, spooky ghost story. Then we get a second story from Flanagan, this time based on the more sedate stories of Henry James in a different old house in a different country with many of the same cast. 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.
