5 Shows After Dark: Everyone's Favorite Outlaw Biker Gang is Back!

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | September 11, 2012 | Comments ()


"The Crimson Petal and the White" on Encore at 8:00pm ET. Part 2 of 2. If last night's comments section is to be believed, the BBC version of this featured some full frontal nudity. I suspect it has been removed from the American broadcast, as we're still a Puritan nation at heart or at least at genitals, but if not I suppose some of you viewers are in for a treat/surprise!

"The 9/11 Surfer" on Discovery at 8:00pm ET. Surprisingly, this is the only new 9/11 centered special I see airing tonight.

"Go On" on NBC at 9:00pm ET. "Go On" has already been reviewed by Dustin and my thoughts on it were basically the same, that it's Matthew Perry playing Chandler Bing with a less dynamic complement of co-stars. Of course, pilots are always kind of strangely structured and broadly written so I guess there's hope that things might get a little better once things get underway.

"Parenthood" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season premiere.

"Sons of Anarchy" on FX at 10:00pm ET. 90 minute fifth season premiere. Woo! Motorcycles! Guns! Drugs! Cast additions include Jimmy Smits, Joel McHale, and... Ashley Tisdale? Yeah, ok. Who wants to start a death pool?

Genevieve Burgess Is thrilled to have worthwhile television to write about again. At least for the moment.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Here's my problem with SOA. I hate Sutter and what did last season, and his douchey response to the unhappiness of his fans. On the other hand, I really love the entire cast. Without fail. I even miss Half-Sack. So I'm torn. I don't think that Sutter deserves any of my support, but I can't not support the cast of the show, especially Ryan Hurst. So, I suppose I'll get around to watching it at some point.

    Nothing will get between me and my beloved Chibs! NOTHING! Every SoA episode is fraught with ecstasy and paralyzing fear that he might be killed off. Instead of seeking help for this problem, I instead post to Pajiba. Thanks Pajiba, the cause of and solution to all of life's problems!

  • Margrete

    What? The PCHers are back?!

  • MikeRoorda

    I really, REALLY liked Sons of Anarchy up until the last season. When Sutter constructed his house of cards and deception and then didn't give the viewer the pleasure of watching it all crash down, I swore I'd be done with the show. The disentanglement was too convenient and too cheap. He's scared to confront or kill any of his favorite characters and when asked about it he copped out with, "Hey man, I'm not Vince Gilligan. I'm writing a soap opera with motorcycles."

    So, for now, I'm going to move on to other shows. (I reserve the right, of course, to change my mind if he finally nuts up.)

    I really have to remind myself that even though I still love the cast and there are awesome cast additions, I can't put myself through all that again. This is a really stupid show, that builds on fake tension and uses absurd twists and retcons to close the complicated plots. The last two seasons ended in really stupid ways, specially this last one and when the writer (who I loved from The Shield) tells us we shouldn't be taking his show seriously, it's like he's calling us stupid for liking it. So keep this stupid show away from me, Pajiba, please stop posting about it, if I go back to watching it in 13 weeks I will be highly disappointed one more time.
