I don’t know if you were aware, but I love TV almost as much as I love cats. This is my list of must watch shows for the upcoming week.
Game Of Thrones might be the best show on TV. The episodes never waste a moment and with more characters than any other show, that is a good thing. Extra points for the most informative and intricate ever-changing opening.
Girls is a new show premiering on April 15th on HBO. Here is the synopsis from TV.com.
Lena Dunham, creator of 2010′s critically acclaimed independent film, Tiny Furniture, partners with Judd Apatow (Freaks & Geeks, Knocked Up) for a new series on HBO. The show, much like Dunham’s film, takes a comically wry and offbeat look at the ups and downs of a group of twenty-something girlfriends living in New York City. The cast includes Dunham as Hannah, an intern at a publishing house in SoHo; Marnie, a motivated assistant at a political PR firm and Jessa; a down-to-earth girl who wants to be an artist and teacher.
I will have to reserve my judgment until after I see the pilot but the reviews are positive. It is definitely worth giving this show a slot on your DVR.
The Killing is a controversial show. It recently started its second season and many (former) fans refused to watch because we still do not know who killed Rosie Larsen. I am in the camp that the show is still solid and interesting enough to hang through at least one more season. Plus I really want to know who the killer is.
Smash is a really good show. I love the behind look at a putting together a Broadway musical. There is so much drama that is coupled with excellent singing and dancing.
Don’t Trust The B In Apt 23 premiered last week and it is quirky. Why should you watch?
- One main character is a terrible person almost in a cartoonish way
- James Van Der Beek plays himself
My TV guilty pleasure, I love Revenge. There is not a weak episode so far and I can only imagine what Amanda has in store for the rest of season one.
Touch is a show with a lot of heart that tells great stories. Even though some of the episodes are a tinge formulaic, watching Kiefer Sutherland get from point A to point B is fascinating. I love how clearly we can see the interconnectedness of each story every week. This show has a lot of potential.
One of the most unusual concepts in recent memory. Awake is well written and has a great feel. I hope the ratings improve because this show deserves a chance.
Fringe does not deserve the ratings it receives. The show has never been better. I will be very upset if it does not get another season.
Slightly cheesy but pretty good for a summer show on MTV. I am halfway through the first season and should be caught up before season two starts.
What’s on your must watch list?
