5 Shows After Dark: Raise Your Sword if You Are Wrong in All the Right Ways

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | March 7, 2013 | Comments ()


"E Special: Oz: The Great and Powerful" on E at 8:00pm ET. I realize that this is like, the last problem this movie has but every time I see a commercial for it, I keep wondering how all three of the lead actresses keep ending up in the middle of the woods or outdoors in these beautifully put together outfits and perfect makeup. Like, I could walk out of the house looking that well-arranged, but by the time I got to the meadow in the middle of the forest I'd be all wilted and sweating my makeup off and probably would have ripped my chic hat on a branch. Like I said, far from the biggest problem, but I fixate on odd details. And yes, I know it's a movie. Thank you for pointing that out.

"Glee" on Fox at 9:30pm ET. Special time, because god knows that "American Idol" needs a whole hour and a half to tell you who the finalists are. Or, they need 5 minutes to tell you who the finalists are, but they also need 30 minutes to feed the egos of the judges, 20 minutes to spend on dramatic close-ups of the contestants, 15 minutes for us to gawk at Ryan Seacrest's attempts at looking like a human, and the other 20 minutes for commercials. It's probably more than 20 minutes, but I'm trying to be nice. Anyway, looks like we're getting another unwanted pregnancy plot line on "Glee" since they're basically rehashing the entire first season anyway. Wheeeeeee!

"Archer" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

"Immortalized" on AMC at 10:00pm ET.

"King of the Nerds" on TBS at 10:00pm ET. First season finale. I have heard people say that this show was actually kinder than I thought it would be, and didn't have the "check out the weirdos" tone I assumed they would take. Has anyone watched the whole season?

Genevieve Burgess still can't spell "Seacrest" right on her first try.

    Legit, 10:30 on FX after Archer.

  • Jen

    Much to my surprise I've totally enjoyed King of the Nerds.

  • HarrionKarstark

    Caption to the header: "There are dozens of us. Dozens!!!"

  • e jerry powell

    I don't spell "Seacrest," I always write it "DOUCHE."

  • toblerone

    Community @ 8... Ah screw it. The show is dead to me now.

  • RilesSD

    Last week's episode was truly awful. They even went for a non-ironic sweet sitcom ending. I'm not giving up on it yet though.

  • toblerone

    Last weeks epsisode was the first on in Community run I had zero interest in watching. So far last nights has gotten positive reviews but I just don't care anymore...

  • babykangarootribbiani

    i am ashamed to be one those masochists who cannot bring themselves to stop watching the trainwreck glee became a year and a half ago, and i;m glad it;s at 8:30 because it means i can watch most of it after my roommate goes to bed (yes, she goes to bed before nine. and she;s 21). but i agree, my biggest problem with the fourth season is it;s basically the first season with what little logic and sense and timing there was ripped out.

  • The Onion

    Apostrophes are one key over.

  • Green Lantern

    Don't be ashamed...I'm with you too.

  • ZombieNurse

    I've watched King of the Nerds all the way through. It wasn't mean spirited or anything, but it made me hate most of the players at one point or another.

  • pcloadletter

    I've been watching all season as well. It's not mean-spirited at all - it celebrates all things nerdy and presents the contestants as real, well-rounded people. Some were socially awkward, others are pretty cool, some are assholes, others are nice.

    So, like any other group of people.
