5 Shows After Dark: MINIONS! To the Cocoon!

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 2, 2013 | Comments ()


"The Killing" on AMC at 8:00pm ET. Two hour third season premiere. Hey, remember how this show had taken a semi-realistic crime and then dragged it out interminably in the stupidest ways possible to squeeze two whole seasons out of one murder? Well, they heard your complaints, and now have a whole BUNCH of murders to attempt to investigate! That's what you wanted, right? In other news, as a young, white, reasonably attractive female who watches crime shows semi-regularly, I have no idea how I haven't been murdered by a sadistic serial killer yet. TV tells me that's the biggest threat to my safety and when has TV ever been wrong?

"Game of Thrones" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Hey, you know how this show tends to have a lot of big events happen on the ninth episode of the season? Well, this is the third season's ninth episode. Not sayin, just saying.

"The Women's Concert for Change: Live from London" on NBC at 9:00pm ET. More complete information here. Two of the presenters are Gwenyth Paltrow and James Franco which leads me to wonder if there's some sort of graph out there to pinpoint the spot where cultural weariness outweighs fundraising usefulness when it comes to celebrities.

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

"The Venture Brothers" on Adult Swim at 12:00am ET. One hour fifth season premiere. FINALLY! For you other incredibly patient fans out there, it's worth noting that Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer have brought back the tee shirt club for this season so if you happen to have extra cash and a deep need for tee shirts related to an obscure adult-targeted cartoon show. Right now, I'm failing on the "extra cash" part.

Genevieve Burgess will be wearing her Molotov and the Blackhearts shirt from the last tee shirt club tonight.

    Finally! Some damn love for the Ventures!

  • TheOriginalMRod

    SHUT UP?!?!? Really? I should have looked at this last night... I didn't know about the Venture Brothers! Oh sweet Godtopus please let my DVR have recorded it!

  • googergieger

    I'd love to watch the Venture Bros. premiere but have to sleep early to wake up early for the new job tomorrow. Bleh.

  • PDamian

    ... wonder if there’s some sort of graph out there to pinpoint the spot where cultural weariness outweighs fundraising usefulness when it comes to celebrities.

    If there isn't, there ought to be. Wonderful question. If I were a better social scientist/statistician, I'd create that graph.

  • manting

    Venture Brothers is pure genius. My favorite show on tv. It is a veritable cornucopia of pop culture.

  • foolsage

    Once more it is time for the deadly game of cat and also-cat. Oh man, I have missed this show something fierce.

  • John W

    Awesome this is the episode where Robb conquers Casterly Rock. I'm so excited.

  • frank247

    I see what you did there...

  • mb

    Oh, you.

  • Guest

    I see what you did there....

  • e jerry powell

    Me and BOURDAIN. At least until time for the Borgias repeat.

  • TheAggroCraig

    I feel like I've waited a decade for some new Venture Bros. All I've done today is marathon it. And post this comment, I guess.

  • Maguita NYC

    I always wait after the 9th episode of GoT before canceling HBO for the summer. (I watch the 10th episode ... Not on HBO).

    If faithful to the story line (No spoiler alert needed), I believe this episode will definitely be one to be watched tonight, and not wait for later viewing. I'll even be cheering and toasting with heavily non-watered down drinks.

  • Maguita NYC

    I don't know if my booze gave me a bad buzz, but tonight was kinda a let down... I was expecting more bang for my mild inebriation (cannot handle my booze as well as Zeke, and tomorrow IS Monday).
