5 Shows After Dark: You Otter Know… About This Documentary

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 16, 2013 | Comments ()


Nature: Saving Otter 501 on PBS at 8:00pm ET. This is the story of the 501st attempt to save an orphan otter at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. This documentary seems to focus on both the struggle the species is experiencing as well as the journey of this particular otter, as marine biologist Karl Mayer and his staff work to rehabilitate her and release her back into the wild. Warning: you will probably cry.

Burton & Taylor on BBCA at 9:00pm ET. Take two. This time featuring the incredibly lovely Helena Bonham Carter and roguish Dominic West. While I’m sure there will be improvements on the Lindsay Lohan version of the story, I’m wondering if this is one of those relationships that would make a better book than movie. Those sorts of messy, decades long, on-again-off-again relationships are really made for racy novels not 90 minute telefilms.

American Horror Story on FX at 10:00pm ET.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on FXX at 10:00pm ET.

South Park on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET. I’m still not a huge fan of the show, but after seeing 6 Days to Air I have a tremendous amount of respect for the people behind the show who keep up that kind of maniac pace for years.

Genevieve Burgess thinks anyone playing Burton and Taylor is going to inevitably fail when compared to the real Burton and Taylor train wreck. You can’t fake that kind of crazy.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • iris

    The star of the otter show!

  • hellokatieo

    That book already exists and it's called Furious Love. And it is AMAZING. I am absolutely obsessed with their relationship after reading about it.

  • e jerry powell

    I can't watch nature shows right now. The tiger cub drowned.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    The otter show is also available online for those of us that don't have cable:


  • Bananapanda

    You shouldn't need cable for PBS! Where are you living?!

  • bastich

    You do if you want to watch "PBS After Hours" and catch the uncut sexy versions of "Antiques Roadshow" or "Charlie Rose".

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    The things they do to antique furniture... I will never look at Duncan Phyfe sofas-- or my grandparents-- the same way again.

    Hey, this will sound really random, but what happens when you pour bleach in your eyes?

  • McSquish

    I'm guessing he meant "do not have cable or an antenna, and therefore must stream everything."

  • F'mal DeHyde

    She and yes, that's what I meant but I didn't think I needed to explain it in depth. Next time I'll just go


  • TCH

    This look otterly amazing.

  • bastich

    I'd rather watch the otter shows, to be honest.

  • TCH

    I otter agree, but I find my viewing habits changing.

  • The article title can be excused, but you two are just doing this on porpoise and need to clam up.

  • John W

    I think South Park will be pre-empted because they didn't pay their electric bill.
