5 Shows After Dark: Come for the Cheekbones, Stay for the Story. And Also the Cheekbones.

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | November 4, 2013 | Comments ()


Monday Night Football: Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers on ESPN at 8:40pm ET. Oh, good, both parties who are involved in my absolute least favorite of those damned “Discount Double Check” commercials. Maybe I’ll get lucky and a meteor will destroy the field.

Tales from the Organ Trade on HBO at 9:00pm ET. There’s two things to know about this, and they are: 1. this is exactly what it sounds like, a documentary about the black market trafficking of human organs which would have been immediately apparent if I had just led with 2. David Cronenberg is the narrator. You can find more information here.

RuPaul’s Drag Race: The Lost Season Ruvealed! on Logo at 9:00pm ET.

Sleepy Hollow on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Back from baseball-related hiatus with more fish out of colonial water storylines and supernatural villains! Shallow thought question: do Ichabod’s supernatural abilities also include a lack of BO? Because otherwise those fancy duds of his must be getting rather ripe.

The Blacklist on NBC at 10:01pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess was willing to forgive the first commercial just for the “so you’re a… dancer?” jazz hands moment.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Juxyn

    What is going in these comments? I'm lost!

  • Ben

    Hooray Sleepy hollow is back, I have to admit I cheated on it while it was away and started watching Super Natural to get my fix of 'two fun people investigiagting spookyness"

    ... shit that show gets dark man... like super fucking dark.

  • It absolutely does, but I really enjoy it, in part for its willingness to make fun of itself from time to time.

  • Ben

    Yeah in the two (Three?) weeks Sleepy Hollow has been gone I'm allready up to the end of season 2 of supernatural. Shit is addictive as hell.

  • That Packers game broke my heart. Seeing Rodgers leave in the first quarter with a fractured collarbone, I knew it was going to be a uphill battle. If he hadn't been injured, we'd have won that game.

  • e jerry powell

    Now, see, am I wrong to feel that the NFL is imploding on itself because the top-flight players are getting taken out one at a time?

    I mean, I get that it's football and shit happens, but when several teams have to field second- or third-stringers every week because of all these "inopportune" injuries and decimated depth charts, SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG with the system. The idea that being down one or two pieces can effectively "doom" a team is ridiculous.

  • Wooooo! Tom Mison's magnificent nose is back!!

  • e jerry powell

    Okay, I'm confused about how a comment I made about "The Carrie Diaries" ten months ago shows up here. Particularly because tonight I will be doing the same old, same old and watching roly-poly Spader.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Fun with coding. 11/4/13 with the slashes removed looks exactly like 1/14/13 so the permalink directs to the entry with 11413 in the title already. I'm going to have to start inserting other characters between the numerals in my post titles.

  • Three_nineteen

    There's the Sleepy Hollow clothes obsession! How I've missed it.

  • manting

    Is sleepy Hollow any good? It looks completely shark jumpingly ridiculous.

  • axis2clusterB

    It's actually really good!

  • Jifaner

    I like it. Just the right balance of silly and suspense, and the main characters are good in their roles.

  • manting

    ok Im going to trust you three and give it a shot. It is my belief that three out of three pajibians cant be wrong.

  • John W

    The strength of the show is the chemistry of the two leads.

    That and every time Ichabod says "Leftenant."

  • Three_nineteen

    It is completely ridiculous, but in a good way, not a shark-jumping way. You just have to go with it.

  • John W

    David Cronenberg is the narrator? That is perfect. Please let there be a segment on the demand for black market VHS tapes pulled out of peoples' guts.

  • bastich

    Long live the new flesh.

  • John W

    I just ordered the Criterion version of that. It's been a while since I've seen it.

  • bastich

    Good choice. The Criterion version is fantastic.

  • manting

    he is the man.

  • axis2clusterB

    Tom Mison's nose is a thing of pure beauty.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    So tonight is the night I learn that back in January, I accidentally typed the base-name of an entry wrong, putting an 11 instead of a 1. Enjoy the zombie comments, because apparently there's nothing I can do to fix it now!

  • emmalita

    I love the surrealism. Pajiba should do this more often. I see a lot of potential here for hilarity and thought-provoking commentary.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    That Carrie Diaries comment of mine still totally holds up. Assuming it's still a show; I don't know things.

  • Guest

    I think John Noble's episodes of Sleepy Hollow start tonight so it may finally be time to tune in.

    Is there anything I need to know before watching?

    ** I think these comments are a repost? From 1/14/13 and not 11/04/13.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Yes. That's exactly what happened, although I think it was 1/4/13. Apparently, 10 months ago, I typed a date wrong and this is what happened. I went back to try and change it but the original entry is gone, having been merged into this one. Super fun!

  • Guest

    Honestly the Knives Chau reference was the only thing that gave it away. I'm pretty sure I up voted it at the time and I up voted it again now.

    The world needs more Ellen Wong preferably in a better show than T.C.Ds.

  • BWeaves

    So Hawaii 5-0 is now Clue 2-0?

  • Rubble44

    I think Carrie gets the Marcia Brady treatment when she tries to get the Ghost of Davy Jones to play the winter formal....

  • stump

    Oh yay, a girl bashing SJP. Edgy.

  • Katylalala

    Oh yay, someone on the internet misunderstanding something and overreacting. Clever.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Pointing out that AnnaSophia Robb's nose is a drastically different size and shape than Sarah Jessica Parker's nose is hardly "bashing."

  • stella

    Wait am I high or did the post change? Are we talking about the Carrie Diares?

  • Buck Forty

    If you stand by those comments why did you delete them?

  • stump

    She looks entirely different, because she is in fact not actually a younger version of SJP. You pointed out the nose because people love making fun of the way SJP looks. Let's not pretend it's anything other than that. The idiots on this website will defend you, but you're shitty for doing it and you know it.

  • Sirilicious

    I am on this website, does that automatically make me an idiot, even if i agree with (part of) your point, if not execution?

    Come back when you can make your interesting point in less obnoxious ways, child.

  • InternetMagpie

  • ,

    "winter premiere event"

    Get it right, because calling it an "event" makes it SO MUCH MORE exciting!!! It's like using three exclamation marks!!! All the car dealers know this!!!

  • Maguita NYC

    House of Lies tonight! Following the sexual-harassment big bang and Marty's fight with ex-wife regarding custody.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I'm pretty sure The Carrie Diaries is just Gossip Girl, you guys.

  • stella

    And gossip girl was just the O.C. At least at the beginning.

  • Laura

    My husband and I decided we should catch up on HIMYM as we had never watched, so got season 1 from Netflix. We're not even all the way through the season, and already both of us keep turning to each other from time to time and say "Fucking Ted". Which then makes me think of Pajiba! He really can be quite the douche.

  • theotherone

    I'm torn on the Carrie Diaries because it has Knives Chau (Ellen Wong)...

  • e jerry powell

    Was Bushnell ever actually a child?
