5 Shows After Dark: Leave the Pretzels To Us, Missy

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | December 11, 2012 | Comments ()


"Raising Hope" on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Third season fall finale.

"Happy Endings" on ABC at 9:00pm ET.

"Parenthood" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season fall finale. I suspect, purely from commercials, that you will need ALL THE TISSUES for this. And maybe some Gatorade to replenish the electrolytes you'll lose through the tears.

"Leverage" on TNT at 10:00pm ET. This is one of those shows I've only seen because I have an absolutely terrible sleep schedule and don't like sitting around in the dark and the quiet by myself and there's not a ton of options available at 2am. And every time I watch it, I marvel at the fact that it's still on television. Seriously. Who else is getting in on this? Insomnia style or otherwise?

"Amish Mafia" on Discovery at 10:30pm ET. Series premiere. What the hell is this? "Those Hersbergs run the dairy business in Larimer and you better not cross them unless you want to end up like the Schrocks"? I'm sort of morbidly curious now.

Genevieve Burgess is making her list and checking it twice.

    Eh, Leverage isn't *that* bad. It isn't great, but its ok as background noise.

    What a rousing review.

    Amish Mafia theme....

    Woke up this morning
    Got myself a blunderbuss
    Took out your butter churn
    On all of us
    Got myself a straw hat
    Fired up my horse and cart
    Tore down the dirt road
    Gonna stab somebody's heart

    (You just can't help yourself)

    Woke up this morning
    (Shaved off my beard)
    Woke up this morning
    (All you lot are weird)

    Woke up this morning and
    (My barn burned down)
    Got myself all shunned (gotta talk in Dutch)
    Heb zelf geschuwd
    (Ezekiel, one more time, tell 'em how its done)
    Got myself all shunned

    I wanted to do a "Sopranos" riff, but didn't have time to do it justice. Well done.

  • Michelle

    Oh Parenthood. You make me so sad, all the time. And now I'll be even more sad because it won't be on for MONTHS. This fall finale crap is.. crap.

    My 78-year-old Grandma (who used to only watch Criminal Minds and CSI) thinks Leverage is the best show on TV. I imagine that's how it stays on the air.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Leverage is awesome trashy television, though. And I'm pretty sure I saw part of an episode where they were Inception-ing someone, so clearly they have a sense of humor about their trashiness.

    Something weird is happening with Hutton's head, though. But I don't care because mostly I'm just looking at Gina Bellman.

    "Prithy Sir. We were told that our barn would be raised by midday, yet the hour, it approaches even-fall."

    "Yeah? Well Brother Jakob says you ain't gettin' no barn unless you do business. So, whatcha gonna do, huh?"
