HELLO … IT’S ME …

HELLO

IT’S ME

AND I’M STILL ADDICTED TO WATCHING TOO MUCH TV …

 

It’s been a while.

Yeah.

Like, a really long while.

Whatevs.

 

I’m not going to waste anyone’s time with details, excuses, or dramatic re-enactments explaining my disappearance. Aint nobody got time for that. This isn’t an episode of Snapped.

However?

And, luckily for y’all…

My undying love – for all things television – has NOT been compromised.

not. even. a. little.

In fact – during my unexplained absence – my love affair with TV has grown even stronger.

 

 

With the newest viewing options; from cable and networks providing ondemand capabilities – to Smart TV’s and RoKu apps, such as: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime?

I’ve inevitably developed a sixth-sense.

For real, people.

I’ve been given a gift. Finding the most awesome television shows, ever.

Some people read fortunes, see the dead, or communicate with the other side. Other people provide stock options, develop retirement plans, or figure out super fancy shit with money. Some people learn. Some people teach. Some people have degrees. And some people just flip burgers or mop floors.

I am not any of those people.

I’m just a television junkie. Committed to all things TV since 1974.

 

 

And I am here to give you the inside info.

  1. I’ll let you know when something is worthy of binge-watching. And I’ll give you the reasons why.
  1. I’ll let you know when something is NOT worthy of binge-watching. And I’ll give you those reasons why.

 

Why?

Because I’m nice like that.

 

 

On the other hand?

I am NOT going to research facts, or spend hours perusing IMBD, or spend one second looking up Rotten Tomato or other notable Critic Scores. I am NOT going to read reviews before, during, or after – watching any show, on any venue, ever.

This is just an unbiased and un-researched television junkie’s blog.

That. Is. All.

 

So…

Brew some coffee, or pour yourself a cocktail, and let’s watch worthy TV, together, again!

Hope y’all enjoy my recommendations, as much as I enjoy watching these shows.

 

* PS: Suggestions are ALWAYS welcome, usually on my Facebook account. Except for anything SyFy and/or History. NO. Because, BORING. Denied.
FYI: I favor crime/suspense/murder/mystery – on any & all venues. And then I will lean on: Comedy, HGTV, IDTV, BRAVOTV, or even Reality TV, when desperate.

Premieres – TONIGHT at 10PM | 9C on AMC!

ABOUT THE SHOW

Breaking Bad follows protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife (Anna Gunn) and teenage son (RJ Mitte) who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years to live. With a new sense of fearlessness, and a desire to secure his family’s financial security, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime, where he ascends to power. The series explores how a fatal diagnosis, such as White’s, releases a typcial man from the daily concerns and constraints of normal society and follows his transformation from mild family man to kingpin of the drug trade.

AMC’s Emmy® Award-winning drama Breaking Bad will be back with a vengeance. Created by acclaimed writer, producer, and director Vince Gilligan and produced by Sony Pictures Television, the series has been hailed as “TV’s best” (Newsday), “mesmerizing” (LA Times) and “among the very elite in television” (San Francisco Chronicle). Now, in its fourth season, danger has become a way of life for chemistry teacher-turned-drug-kingpin Walter White (Bryan Cranston), who has embraced his drug-world alter ego with chilling purpose. Even his once tranquil family life has taken a dark turn, as Walt continues to juggle his roles as fatherly provider and drug manufacturer.

Okay, I have to admit I never watched this show, until very recently. Even though I heard positively glowing reviews from nearly everyone I’ve ever spoken to regarding Breaking Bad, I wasn’t very interested in watching some science teacher, with lung cancer, turn into a Meth-Dealer. I’m not a exactly big fan of science, or cancer, or tweakers.

However, that being said, with limited choices these days, I accidentally stumbled upon the pilot episode.

And, um…..

HOLY SHIT.

I was immediately HOOKED.

And by hooked I mean I watched EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of Season One – in ONE sitting.

For – 7 hours. IN A ROW

And then I took a three hour nap, only to wake up, and watch EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of Season Two – in ONE sitting.

For – 13 hours. IN A ROW.

And then I took another three hour nap, only to wake up, and watch EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of Season Three – in ONE sitting.

For another 13 hours. IN A ROW.

Why?

Because I HAD TO KNOW what happened next.

Now, I don’t think I’ve ever said this about any others show, but the series Breaking Bad is the same high quality as DEXTER.

Maybe it’s even better.

[Seriously, people? Breaking Bad IS better than Dexter.]

And that speaks volumes.

I highly recommend any and EVERY ONE watches this show.

It’s real, it’s raw, it’s heart-wrenching, anxiety-producing, fascinatingly, BRILLIANT.

Seriously.

Creator, and writer, Vince Gilligan, is a flippen genius.

Bryan Cranston, who plays Walt White, has won an Emmy for each season.

I’ve never been more eager for a new season of a TV show than I am right now!

The Killing

The Killing is an all new series on AMC, which by the way, is FAST becoming my new favorite channel. I’ve recently been introduced to this show and I have subsequently fallen in love with the series. And now, I find myself walking around all day wondering…..

Who Killed Rosie Larson?

ABOUT THE SHOW

The Killing tells the story of the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation. The show ties together three distinct stories around a single murder including the detectives assigned to the case, the victim’s grieving family, and the suspects. Set in Seattle, the story also explores local politics as it follows politicians connected to the case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they’ve moved on, their past isn’t done with them.

This is a very intriguing show that constant leaves you guessing and wondering. It’s a true whodunit with crazy twists and all of those crazy twists are completely plausible. The first season moves a little slower than I’m used to, but that’s only because the characters are so well developed. The backstories, what motivates them, and watching everything slowly unfold has been nothing short of fascinating!

Season 1 & 2 are connected completely. And you will NEVER see the season 2 finale coming. NEVER. Season three sort of stands on it’s own, but I don’t recommend watching it without watching 1 & 2 first. And season 4 ties all seasons together, perfectly. They truly wrapped up the series as a whole, properly.
