Quick and Dirty Catch Up.

  *Over the last few weeks I have been plagued by internet issues and health issues so I have not been keeping up with my writing as much as I normally would, for that I am sorry. It does however mean that I got sucked into a bunch more shows in my time of bored confinement. Winter is coming and I have to say I am looking forward to it. To keep this brief and to cover everything I want to cover, I will keep it to short, random thoughts about each episode and show, quick and dirty style.

 

Sons of Anarchy.                FX 10pm on Tuesday

Big changes in the club this season, everyone’s lives are being turned upside down and many are coming to an end as well. With Jax at the head of the table, not everyone is happy about it so as always there is big trouble in little Charming. Gemma is not handling the events of last season very well and seems to be on an unending bender, introducing us to a Latino pimp played by Jimmy Smitts and his escort service.

Survivor.                 CBS 8pm on Wednesday

Lots of rain and people behaving badly as usual and the chick I was rooting for was taken out for medical reasons. The child star and the baseball player are still there and so are two of the returning players and some more rain.

Nashville.                     ABC 10pm on Wednesday

This show surprised me in so many ways, first off because I don’t really like country music, I don’t really like soap operas and I don’t really think characters glorifying shallow, pretentious girls is a very positive message to send, the world is what it is though. So, the Queen of country music starts freaking out about a rising young starlet and her own declining record sales. While they are focused on destroying each other and fighting over the handsome charming guitar singer, a cute little waitress and her friend who runs the soundboard at the local bar do one song at an open mike night and are lucky enough to have a very special guest in the audience, a guest who is going to change everyone’s lives sooner or later. If this show is good enough to keep someone like me watching, it really must have something really special going for it, so I think any fan of that style of music will fall in love.

American Horror Story.              FX 10pm on Wednesdays

Season two takes us from the house in LA to an asylum somewhere in Massachusetts in the 60’s where most of the patients are not even half as crazy as the people who run the place. Right from the start AHS lives up to what the fans would expect with all the madness, violence, sex and perverse humor that made season one such a hit. Many faces are back again but in very different roles and there are many new faces who have already brought a deeper level of evil to this new season, this is becoming one of my favorites.

 

*This takes us to Sunday nights, the best night of the week.

 

Once Upon a Time.                     ABC 8pm on Sundays

Magic, magic, and more magic. The evil queen’s evil mom and a handsome Captain Hook. Ummm, yeah.

Revenge.                     ABC 9pm on Sundays

Another guilty pleasure, more rich people behaving badly but the twists and turns the show takes can be fun. It is one you kind of have to watch from the beginning but it is well worth it. Emily Thorne is a smart, wealthy, and somewhat sociopathic girl who has had a really, really rough life. She finds out that all her troubles were because of this one rich family so she goes after them and digs up more and more of the mystery as she goes. I wouldn’t say this is worth missing Dexter for but it is definitely worth keeping up with online or on demand, however you prefer.

666 Park Avenue.                     ABC 10pm on Sundays

What I have gotten out of it so far is that Terry O’Quinn (John Locke/ Smoke monster from Lost) runs the Hotel California (but in New York) with his wife, Vanessa Williams. It follows a young couple as they move in and get to know all the other strange residents while strange things happen around them. A writer is being stalked by a hot blonde and there is a strange room in the basement. I have really been enjoying this show, having been a huge Lost fan but I have a hard time waiting for stories to unfold so I got the book (By  Gabriella Pierce) and when I write about this next week I will have a better idea of what is going on with this. I promise not to spoil it for anyone though.

Dexter.                            Showtime 9pm on Sundays

For being a neat monster, our dear, demented Dexter has found himself cornered in a way he never has been before and he is not handling the pressures very well. Now that his secrets are out, life has gotten complicated for the dark defender. Deb is watching his every move and doing everything in her power to keep him away from bloody crime scenes while at work, LaGuerta has the blood slide and even the Russian mob is sniffing his trail. Granted, one problem solved another for Dexter but that still leaves a lot of problems still to be dealt with. None if this stops Dexter’s dastardly deeds and fans are left on the edge of their seats wondering how it will all play out, will Dexter go on, living by the code or will he be taken down by his own department, his own sister and all the other people he has grown close to over the years? We will just have to wait and see.

Homeland.                     Showtime 10pm on Sundays

If I had a website dedicated to this show, I still could not say enough good things about it. This season has been a roller coaster ride and we are only a few episodes in. While on a mission in Beirut and while losing her mind again, Carrie accidentally finds the missing video of Brodie before his failed assassination of the Vice President and Saul finds it, bringing it to the CIA after finally vindicating Carrie and telling her she was right all along. Even though Saul brings it to the attention of his government, he also manages to keep it quiet and it leads to Brodie being investigated again and when we last saw him, black bagged and being dragged from his hotel room. Now the fun really begins, will he get out of it? Will it all come crumbling down around the good Senator?

 

*And there we go; now I feel like I can get back on track this week and get more in depth with all these great shows. Thank you for being patient with me.
