5 Shows After Dark: McHale and Guinness, What Else Could You Ask For?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | September 25, 2013 | Comments ()


Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Two hour 15th season premiere. Hey, guys, you know how Olivia Benson has been a strong person crusading for the rights of sexual assault victims for years? Well, they’re really giving her some interesting storyline in the season premiere… by beating her up, tying her to a chair, and having her held hostage by a murderer. Promo images show her with a bloodied nose, a bruised face, and duct tape over her mouth. The preview on NBC ends with her being pistol whipped. Should be super-good! I’m gonna go vomit forever now. Come tap me on the shoulder when we can convince writers that “assault” isn’t a macro for character development.

The Getaway on Esquire at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is the same format as Anthony Bourdain’s The Layover in that each episode covers 48 hours, but the celebrity hosts will rotate. The show starts off with Pajiba favorite Joel McHale visiting Belfast.

Broadchurch on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. First season finale.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on FXX at 10:00pm ET.

Key & Peele on Comedy Central at 10:30pm ET. YOU GUYS LOOK WHAT I JUST FOUND! The portrait of the lovely and not at all crazy-eyed Shakiraquan T.G.I.F Carter is on my twitter account for those who are curious.

Genevieve Burgess will point out that the link in her name goes to her Twitter account in case you were unaware of that fact.

    GB: you must show yours.

    Somehow I knew you'd be on the East team.

    "What Else Could You Ask For?"

    Naked McHale and more Guinness (with a sidecar)?

    Well, you asked...

    Guinness is fine, but I prefer Bulmers (Magners).

    You do know that Benson's been a rape singularity on that show for, like, 900 years at this point, right? She's a child of rape, a sister of rape, a victim of (near? Or maybe they eventually went all the way) rape, etc. Frankly, good old fashioned imprisonment and assault is a step up.

    I quit the show 2 seasons ago, RIP Stabler, but she never got penetrated raped ever. She got close when in season 5/7/10/11 (no idea) when she went undercover at a women's prison and had no power and a guard almost went there, but she got rescued.

    Something about me just misses Stabler's Ample Ass™ at this point.
