5 Shows After Dark: Pass the Martinis and Pharmaceuticals

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


"The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards" on CBS at 8:00pm ET.

"Cupcake Wars" on Food Network at 8:00pm ET. Eighth season premiere. I'm only mentioning this because Weird Al Yankovic will be a guest judge tonight.

"Game of Thrones" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. I have heard that we will be meeting several new characters tonight. Because if there's one thing this series doesn't have enough of, it's characters with some tenuous connection to the characters we already know. I won't even say "main characters" because at this point we should all know better than that.

"Mad Men" on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Two hour sixth season premiere. I do enjoy the two hour premieres of this show, but at the same time it's always kind of a little much all at once. I need a little more time to ease back into that world of oppressive ennui tempered with situational Roger Sterling related humor.

"Shameless" on Showtime at 9:00pm ET. The 9pm hour tonight is just PACKED. I hope those of you who are fans of all these shows have a good DVR on hand. "House of Lies" and "Californication" also have finales tonight, but as far as I'm aware they don't have the following around these parts that "Shameless" does, so it gets the mention.

Genevieve Burgess thinks that since "Game of Thrones" and "Mad Men" are back, Sunday night TV should come with complimentary Zoloft.

    Don't forget "Call the Midwife."

    Am I the only one slightly creeped out by the photo that's got bikini crack on the center line?

  • Bittermary

    Creeped out, unnerved, discomfited, ick.

  • Candee

    Wait, House of Lies already started and is now over? Poop.

  • John W

    House of Lies is decent. If only they could find a way to have Clyde attacked by a pride of lions, or mauled by a Grizzly bear, man that would be the best.

    Californication is like Dexter. Same shit different season.

    Am I the only one who likes Clyde?

  • Green Lantern

    You are NOT the only one that likes Clyde. Glad to see some other "House of Lies" fans around, for that matter!

    I've read the entire series (a few times) and it makes it a lot easier to understand all the "major" and "minor" characters, although I do wish they had more time to flesh out some of the stories.

  • Drake

    It would help if every other character wasn't an old white guy with a beard.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I have read the books, but a billion characters in a book are a little easier to deal with than a billion characters on the TV show. At least in the book you can just keep flipping back to the appendix to remember who everyone is and who they're supposed to be connected to. Also, we'd end up with like, 90 second per storyline per week and it'd be rough.
