I don’t watch a lot of TV; my rock ‘n roll lifestyle doesn’t accommodate it. However, there are a handful of shows I love enough to tune in for new episodes. The annoying thing is they all land on only two days of the week. I catch “30 Rock”, “Community”, and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” on Thursday nights; “Boardwalk Empire” and “Dexter” are on Sunday nights. I do watch other shows, but in a passive, playing-in-the-background-while-I-masturbate-play-video-games sort of way.
Thursdays aren’t too bad, because the shows are on at different times; Dex and Boardwalk, however, are both on at 9:00. Now, the new show I was greatly looking forward to,”The Walking Dead”, is on…Sundays at 10:00. Son of a bitch. Come on, AMC! You couldn’t have it on frickin’ Tuesday, just to even out my week? I know that this was the reason why DVRs were invented, but my DVR can only do two shows at once, and I usually watch “Dexter” at 10:00. If one more network tries to shoehorn a new show into Sunday at 9:00, I’m screwed. If I even try to record two shows at once while watching a third, my DVR tells me to f*ck myself.
Uh…not that it isn’t a wonderful device provided by my awesome cable service provider.
Anyway, I’m psyched for “The Walking Dead”, which, as I write this, will be on in a couple of hours. And speaking of “Boardwalk Empire”…watch that shit. HBO isn’t really that expensive and if you’ve got VOD you can get caught up on previous episodes. I was gonna write a whole review of the show, but there is so much going on and so much to like that I had a hard time getting it all out coherently. What am I, a professional writer?* BTW, I’m actually not trying to use this blog to shamelessly promote the company I work for (see: the image above). Long story short: Can’t wait for “Dead” and if you don’t start watching “Boardwalk”, I’ll kill you in your sleep. It wouldn’t be hard. Only, like, five people read this damn thing.
