5 Shows After Dark: Something Something Knocks Something Heisenberg. Am I Doing it Right?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | August 11, 2013 | Comments ()


I fooled more of you with this week’s fake show than I have in a while, and I’m a little bit proud of myself. “All Creatures Great and Small” is not being rebooted by Animal Planet. At least not yet. Good eyes to e jerry powell and DataAngel who definitively called fake, and a hat tip to Anne at Large who simply pleaded with me for the truth. I’ll have to figure out a different gambit for this week.

“Teen Choice Awards 2013” on Fox at 8:00pm ET. I have yet to meet an actual teen who cares deeply about these, but when has television ever lied to me?

“Breaking Bad” on AMC at 9:00pm ET. 5th season summer premiere. I thought about not listing this just to see how many people I could get to point out that it wasn’t there, but that would be a little mean even for me. Enjoy trading your favorite quotes in the comments until the show starts.

“Eat, Drink, Love” on Bravo at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. New reality series following three women attempting to love, work, and love in the male dominated and highly competitive Los Angeles food scene. I’m sure it’ll be thrilling.

“The Newsroom” on HBO at 10:00pm ET.

“Low Winter Sun” on AMC at 10:04pm ET. Series premiere. A new cop drama (but not procedural) set in Detroit starring Mark Strong. I get the sense that this isn’t really a “feel good” kind of show that might help you decompress after “Breaking Bad.” But Mark Strong is always a plus.

Genevieve Burgess is thrilled that it’s “Breaking Bad” Conspiracy Theory Season again, and looks forward to watching several of her fellow writers lose their damn minds on a weekly basis.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Anne At Large

    Can I get a Praise Godtopus up in here? Because Praise Godtopus that was the fake! Also my husband is just discovering Brreaking Bad as of today, and man, does he have a lot of catching up to do!

  • Bananaranma

    I am the one who posts.

    I hope someone (staff, commenter) will review "Low Winter Sun." It's got a good cast, but I don't feel like testing another dark crime drama right now unless people are overwhelmed by its fabulousness.

    You know how you know you talk about Breaking Bad too much? When the almost 7 yr old develops this knock-knock joke:
    Knock-knock. Who's there? Heisenburger (sic). Heisenburger, who? Heisenburger, I'm bored of hearing about it.

  • emmalita

    I don't think things are going to get better for the little guy for the next while. At least we don't let him watch it with us.

  • Wōđanaz Óðinn

    I dunno which I'm looking forward to more in the next Station Agents instalment: the extolling of Walt et al. or the massive bitch-fest at Sorkin's expense.

    Teen Choice Awards? Ha, good try.
