5 Shows After Dark: Sometimes a Spoiled Brat is Just a Spoiled Brat

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 17, 2012 | Comments ()


"Falling Skies" on TNT at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. Watch Dr.Carter the Librarian battle aliens! Again, some more.

"The Killing" on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Second season finale. Will anything be resolved tonight or is it more of people standing around in the rain staring at things? That seemed to be a lot of the first season.

"Mythbusters" on Discovery at 9:00pm ET. 10th season finale.

"The Borgias" on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale.

"Girls" on HBO at 10:00pm ET. First season finale. I know a lot of people have some very strong opinions on this show, but the clips I've seen haven't really swayed me one way or the other and since I don't have HBO I haven't been able to further evaluate the show. What I can evaluate is people acting like this show "says something" about all women ever, or even all women of the same age as the show's stars. It doesn't. It's a TV show, not a documentary. It says as much about women in their early to mid-20s as "Justified" says about the personality and motivations of the average US Marshall.

Genevieve Burgess does not appreciate your sass. (That's a lie.)
