5 Shows After Dark: Ours is the AWESOME!

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | March 31, 2013 | Comments ()


The Zombie Lord Jesus is risen and He has brought with Him a bounty of excellent television. Praise the lord and pass the popcorn. Happy Easter, everyone!

"Doctor Who: The Companions" on BBCA at 7:00pm ET. There's a couple "Doctor Who" specials on tonight for you Whovians. I know you've already got a new episode from last night to talk about, though, so if you want to start chatting in the comments go ahead.

"Call the Midwife" on PBS at 8:00pm ET. Second season premiere. And after this there's a new series premiering called "Mr.Selfridge" about the man who founded Selfridges. So much delightful British period drama!

"Game of Thrones" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere. IT'S HERE! You know what I spent yesterday doing? Standing in line for hours to see some of the "Game of Thrones" costumes and props in real life, and sit on the Iron Throne. Totally worth it. I'm super excited for this season. Though, for non-book readers, I will encourage you to form your support groups for the season early on. You will need them. There is a LOT coming your way. This season is dark and full of terrors.

"The Good Wife" on CBS at 9:00pm ET.

"The Walking Dead" on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Third season finale.

Genevieve Burgess claimed the Iron Throne for approximately ten seconds. Then it was someone else's turn.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I don't have HBO so I was stuck with the Selfridge's thing. No one told me there was a Piven in it. Awful, just awful.

  • Kris

    So, you got to sit on the Iron Throne for 10 seconds before someone else took over? Just like the real thing, then.

  • BWeaves

    Damn, I missed the Midwife?

  • Melissa D

    Molson Canadian (a beer, I don't know if it's shitty, I don't like beer) posted a map of Canada with various provinces representing various GoT houses and asked which one you'd like to be! Problem? They cut the map off at Quebec. They're now be TROUNCED by Atlantic Canadians wondering where their provinces are. Molson responded that the East Coast got cut off a little, but don't worry, there's a house for Quebec! HAAAAAAAAAAAA! It's genuinely amusing me watching the fall out and the oblivious responses by Molson that only make it worse.

  • Bert_McGurt

    It is indeed rather sh*tty beer.

  • Molson should know not to piss off the Québécois!

  • Melissa D

    They should REALLY know not to piss off the biggest drinkers in the country. ;) The funny part was the whole thread was devoted to people being pissed off, and their response was always "Hi, our map cut off a bit, but we included the East Coast with a house in Quebec! :) What house would YOU choose?" And the rage grew. Heeeeeeee!

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Is "sitting on the Iron Throne" a name for a sex position yet? Because it seems like if it's not, it's about ten minutes and one of those motivational poster generator things away from being one.

  • e jerry powell

    Maybe nerve had one six or seven years ago, but I stopped paying attention to nerve when I turned 35 back in the day.

  • PDamian

    No, but it's gaining traction as a euphemism for really serious diarrhea.

    Or is that just me?

  • kirbyjay

    In my rated G world, it's the shelf next to my ironing board.

  • Sitting on the Iron Throne, you say? Pics please!

  • Genevieve Burgess

    BAM! I'm pretty proud I was able to get basically all of myself properly composed in the two seconds I had before they snapped the picture. My feet are rebels though.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I'm positive that's exactly how Cersei sat on the throne, you just couldn't see her feet under the long dress.

  • PDamian

    Now find a friend who's really good at Photoshop to give you some lil' dragons.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    They had baby Drogon and adolescent Drogon at the exhibition too. I so wanted to steal the baby Drogon and take it home and love him like he wasn't just a resin statue.

  • John W

    I heard they're very loyal, intelligent and easy to train but, grooming is a real pain...

  • John W

    Sweet. Quick you have one person you can behead before your turn is over. Go.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    The Mountain. I'm more than happy to do Arya a favor.

  • Even more badass than I had imagined. And hey, you got closer than Renly ever did! Zooming up the king rankings with minimal casualties ... nice work, ma'am.

  • Guest

    Wow Genevieve! What long legs you have.

  • Melissa D

    You are smizing. That's good enough for any pose!

  • e jerry powell

    And we are getting all of that neck. She could have gone further with the right leg, though. I love the busted-up doll look when thrones are being worked.
