5 Shows After Dark: Please Tell Me He Calls Someone "Sweetheart"

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | September 30, 2013 | Comments ()


Bones on Fox at 8:00pm ET.

Monday Night Football: Miami Dolphins at New Orleans Saints on ESPN at 8:40pm ET. My fantasy team this season is doing so poorly that it almost defies all logic and reason. Especially given that I’m in a dinky, six-person league. So, if you could, send a thought to Football Jesus (Or Football Spaghetti Monster, I’m not picky) that Darren Sproles has the best game of his life. Because at the moment I’m on track to have another match up where I score the second most points in the league, but have the misfortune to be playing the person who scores the most points in the league.

Sleepy Hollow on Fox at 9:00pm ET.

The Blacklist on NBC at 10:01pm ET. I can’t help but think of this as the “James Spader In Hats” show, because all the advertising seems very emphatic on the hat issue. That and the trenchcoat. Dude’s dressed like a detective out of a 1940’s pulp novel and it gives me the giggles every time I see it. I just can’t take him seriously as this big important criminal mastermind when he looks like he’s cosplaying The Maltese Falcon or something.

Castle on ABC at 10:01pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess cares enough about Fantasy Football that she really would prefer to not be in last place, but not much beyond that.

    I don't know if it was the best game of his life, but it sure looks like someone was listening to you last night.

    I cam here to jokingly say that James Spader looks like he should be on http://menwholooklikeoldlesbia... BUT HE ALREADY IS

    I'm still hanging with In Hats because I am still too lazy to pick up the remote before Daily Show (which is still pre-programmed in the cable box). I haven't been grossly offended by a plot contrivance yet, so why the hell not?

  • Ben

    If they renamed the black list James spader in hats and dropped the entire super criminal thing from it, I would still watch it.

  • That is precisely my feeling on James Spader with Hats and the exact reason why I must watch it tonight. Which is why I came here and read your delightful paragraph in the first place. Thank you for all your hard work, Rusty.

    At some point I have to assume my Castle-itis will run its course, and I will return to only loving shows like "Justified".

    But right now, I still get a silly grin thinking about Castle, and I'm not ready to give that up yet....

    You know who can wear a Fedora? Nathan Fillion in Castle, that's who.


  • BWeaves

    Spader is just too baby faced to work a fedora and trench. He needs the wrinkled gravitas of Bogart to make that work.
