5 Shows After Dark: To Be Fair, I Look Like That When My Toes are Cold Too

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | April 28, 2013 | Comments ()


"Call the Midwife" on PBS at 8:00pm ET. I'm beginning to think this might be the most uplifting drama airing on Sunday nights right now. Not that it's got much competition between "Game of Thrones" where everyone dies and "Mad Men" where we get to see otherwise competent people sabotaging their own lives like there's a prize for it.

"Bob's Burgers" on Fox at 8:30pm ET.

"Game of Thrones" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. The episode title is "Kissed by Fire" if you know what I mean, and I'm betting all the book readers do. We'll probably see a lot of Kit Harrington in this episode, if you're into that sort of thing. I'm not a big fan, I think he looks like a sad puppy like 90% of the time, but I know that some of y'all find that endearing.

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

"Vikings" on History at 10:00pm ET. First season finale.

Genevieve Burgess grew out of her penchant for melancholy boys with moody hair somewhere around age 19. She's sure Mr.Harrington is gutted to hear this.

    Bletchley Circle is really good.

  • John W

    I powered through seasons 3-4 of Breaking Bad this weekend.

    Pajiba why didn't you tell me this show was so good?

    The season finale of Season 4. WOW. I mean WOW. And again I say WOW.

    I knew Bryan Cranston was a good actor from his days on Malcolm in the Middle. Both he and Jane Kaczmarek were underrated and under appreciated.

    Where the hell did Aaron Paul come from?

    Once BB ends let start a campaign to have Vince Gilligan become the next and last show runner of Walking Dead.

  • Three_nineteen

    Aaron Paul came from Big Love, where he played a really nice and mature former Mormon. It was a fun kind of whiplash to see him in Breaking Bad.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    "Former Mormon" reminds of of that old tongue twister "a noisy noise annoys an oyster".

    Non sequitur is my middle name.

  • Rochelle

    Which Pajiba have you been reading? I

  • Mrs. Julien

    The pictures of Allison Brie can be pretty distracting.

  • Rochelle

    That explains it. I'm immune to Brie. She's great, but has the wrong body parts to distract me from Cranston in his tightly whities.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    It was only a couple of weeks ago that I realized the Mayan apocalypse hadn't annihilated us all. I had been stuck in a Brie gif singularity from Community's Christmas ep last season. You know the one.

  • PDamian

    I did a Call the Midwife marathon about a month ago, and now I'm hooked. Even with its depiction of lower- and working-class late 1950s London in all its grit and squalor, there's a sort of sweetness to the series. The first season is on Netflix Instant; go see.

  • BWeaves

    I love Call the Midwife.

    In last nights episode, there were Brownies dancing around a May pole and they were wearing MY Brownie uniform. I still have it in my closet somewhere. I remember having to learn how to tie that yellow tie. It's not a regular tie, but a large square or triangle, that you have to fold, origami-like, into something that looks like a tie. In the late 1960's they replaced it with a little prefolded crossover tie.

    I was shocked at Sister Bernadette's response to Dr. Who's brother. All this time, I thought it was she who wanted to be kissed, and he was oblivious. Now I find out, he gets it and she's the one who's conflicted.

    Then again, I'm always so surprised how tolerant these Anglican nuns are about all the various sexual practices going on around them, and it's the young nurses who are shocked. Then again, I'm shocked there are Anglican nuns. Who knew?


  • PDamian

    Some of the most open-minded, tolerant, informed and intelligent women it's been my honor to know are Catholic nuns. Orders who work in impoverished or economically depressed areas, serving people directly with medical care, food, job training or anything else (as opposed to cloistered or teaching orders) have very understanding and tolerant members. "Boots on the ground" sisters are loving, caring, strong and TOUGH. Maryknoll Sisters and Sisters of Loretto were my heroes when I was a kid; Sister Evangelina, in particular, reminds me of those women.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I really appreciate Netflix recommendations.

  • BWeaves

    If you don't like the first episode, stick with it and watch the second episode when they introduce Chummy, and you'll be hooked. It's so nice to see an unconventional female as the romantic lead of the bunch of girls.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Just finishing the second episode and Chummy is a treasure. It reminds me of The Magdelene Sisters quite a bit only not nearly as grim.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Is it proof I'm middle aged and boring that whenever I see the characters at and beyond The Wall not wearing a hat, I want to smack them? I know it's about the filming and seeing faces, but it makes me cold just to look at them and their poor exposed ears.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I was surprised to learn that they actually film it in real weather, my face turns a very unattractive and shocking red when it's cold and windy outside. I've only seen one slightly pink nose on the show. How is that possible?

  • BWeaves

    Spackle and pancake. Lots of pancake (makeup).

  • Mrs. Julien

    I hadn't even thought of that. My eyes stream in cold wind. I look like I'm quietly weeping. It was such a pain in the ass when I was young: Little girl, why are you crying?

    I am so about the Borgias and Bourdain tonight, though.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Can I tell you how much it makes me laugh that the RCN cable description of The Borgias lists it as a "docudrama"?

  • e jerry powell

    That is hysterical. Particularly with that piece of ass Cesare got last night.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Hi, honey!
