5 Shows After Dark: I'm Just Encouraging Them, Aren't I?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | March 27, 2013 | Comments ()


"Arrow" on The CW at 8:00pm ET.

"Blade Runner: The Untold Story" on TLC at 10:00pm ET. I had hoped against all reason that this was a special about the movie Blade Runner, as improbable as that was. But no, it is indeed a look at the murder of Reeva Steenkamp that took place on Valentine's day, a case which cannot end positively no matter how you look at it. I just wish the media would back off and let the families handle this tragedy in private, because no matter how it shakes out in the courts there's no good ending in sight for anyone involved.

"Duck Dynasty" on A&E at 10:00pm ET.

"Psych" on USA at 10:00pm ET. 100th episode. It's a choose your own ending episode of "Psych"! Play along at home. There's been a couple of scripted shows that have done this, and I feel like they're missing the reason why people watch scripted television. Isn't the whole point sort of that the writers plan things out and execute them in ways the average viewer wouldn't think of? Most people who watch television and movies are terrible at deciding what should happen. Have you read fanfic? Frankly, it seems like if you want to give the viewers what they really want, the show would just become a gay porn film starring Shawn and Gus. (I assume. Don't email me about "Psych" fanfic, I'd rather not know for certain.)

"Southland" on TNT at 10:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess's book is now available on Kindle so that's what will be here this week.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    That Psych episode was fan-freakin-tastic. And the credit at the end, dedicated to Madeline Kahn? *dries eyes*

  • Lauren_Lauren

    Oh cool, that's one of the offices at the Vancouver Aquarium! I could never get any work done if my desk faced a tank full of porpoises.

  • Mrcreosote

    Lauren just can't work with porpoise.

  • Lauren_Lauren

    Pun! Excellent.

  • Kati

    I think this Psych episode is an homage to "Clue," so the multiple endings are in line with the show's theme.

  • ZombieNurse

    Don't be exactly half of an eleven pound black forest ham. The choose your own adventure Psych sounds fun to me.

  • Wembley

    Actually, Psych is probably the one show where 'Choose Your Adventure' might make sense. It's that kind of show.

  • Well if you don't want them emailed, I guess we have to put them in the comments. Here's an entire archive: http://www.fanfiction.net/comm...

    Most of the stories seem to be Shawn and Lassie, so let that image just sink in.

  • Kballs

    Banging famous dogs is not cool.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I get the sense that there has to be a certain percentage of fanfic that's pure satire. The problem is they're working in a medium that's become impossible to satirize. Like reality TV.

  • Three_nineteen

    Shawn and Lassie? Eww. Now, GUS and Lassie...
