5 Shows After Dark: If "Their" Country Requires Hazmat Suits, They Can Have It

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 29, 2013 | Comments ()


The Originals on The CW at 8:00pm ET.

Doomsday Preppers on National Geographic Channel at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere. Alright, I really wanted to go without mentioning this that I could convince myself it was either a bad dream or one of those fake shows I made up over the summer, but two things have kept this from happening. 1. “Third season”? Really? 2. The episode is called “Take Our Country Back” and I do so love it when people say they’re going to do this, because you only hear it from people who are not actually original Americans. And I FURTHER love questioning them on who, exactly, they think they’re taking the country back from? Other Americans? Because I live in Not-Real-America (read: the Mid-East Coast) and I’ve got a passport sitting next to me right now that indicates that I am an American citizen despite living in the liberal hellscape of suburban Maryland. Anyway, I’m dearly disappointed to be denied the very special joy I wring from sweetly asking people who took America away and watching them attempt to contort reality, since you can’t do that to people on the TV.

Supernatural on The CW at 9:00pm ET.

Person of Interest on CBS at 10:00pm ET. I assume this show is still on the air only because the fans of NCIS forget to turn their TVs off after NCIS: Los Angeles. Unless people really do enjoy watching Jesus and Ben Linus investigate future-crimes and I’m hanging around the wrong television viewers.

Sons of Anarchy on FX at 10:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess is very good at asking “innocent” questions that make people extremely angry and frustrated with everything.
