5 Shows After Dark: Snuffy the Seal Never Stood a Chance

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | August 4, 2013 | Comments ()


Last week’s show was the (not) G4 produced “Buck Off” which was correctly identified by Long_Pig_Tailorisnotloggedin, DataAngel, erich, Melissa, and also sort of Monica although her guess was not a definitive no, but more a conditional no. Anyway, as far as I am aware, there are no plans to adapt the game “Big Buck Hunter” into a reality series. I will say it is far easier to come up with fake reality series that fly under the radar than fake scripted shows that do, so I’ll have to challenge myself in that way the next couple of weeks. Here’s what’s on tonight:

“Dexter” on Showtime at 9:00pm ET.

“Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives” on Discovery at 9:00pm ET. Shark Week has returned! The fun version of “shark week”, not the euphemism for special lady times. This is clearly the second biggest TV event happening today for the readers of this site, as the biggest television event today happened at 2pm and was thus not able to be included in this run-down. But! Sharks!

“The Killing” on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Two hour third season finale. Apparently this show has become much better this season, so I’ll have to go back and watch it one day. I won’t tell you when, though, because that’s basically how I do it with shows all You People like that I don’t already watch. I wait until I think no one’s paying attention, watch them quietly, and then look super informed the next time they come around. That way, if I don’t like the show, I don’t feel weird about not liking a show everyone is fawning over.

“True Blood” on HBO at 9:00pm ET.

“Ray Donovan” on Showtime at 10:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess doesn’t like confrontation. I mean, if you do, that’s totally cool, it’s just not for her, but she won’t judge if that’s your thing.
