I Know It's What You're Watching Anyway

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | February 16, 2014 | Comments ()


This isn’t on the schedule, per se, but for those of you steam-rolling through House of Cards do me a small favor and check the credits for the name “Angelina Kline Burgess” as “Tailor” next time you watch an episode. She’s there from at least episode 5 onwards. That’s my mom, who has spent the last several months sitting on some very juicy plot points (as well as some very sensitive measurements) and it’s super cool to finally see her work on screen.

2014 Olympic Winter Games on NBC at 7:00pm ET. Tonight’s events are ice dancing, men’s Super-G skiing, women’s snowboard cross, and two-man bobsled.

Downton Abbey on PBS at 9:00pm ET.

Shameless on Showtime at 9:00pm ET.

True Detective on HBO at 9:00pm ET.

The Walking Dead on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Apparently everything worth watching on Sunday nights comes on at 9:00pm ET. It’s like some kind of plot to kill your DVRs and incite household battles with consequences that will reverberate well into Tuesday’s breakfast.

Genevieve Burgess gets her dose of political treachery with a side helping of insider gossip about the production. Envy her.

    Just like last year, I watched the whole thing in one weekend. Unlike last year, I realized I would be watching the whole thing in one weekend, so I didn't start at 4pm Sunday.

    Robin Wright continues to create a unique, fascinating, damaged, damaging woman. A tour due force.

    And that thing that happened in the first ep was a surprise, but a wonderful one. One of the weakest parts of last year. - gone. Yes!

    Oh, and the tailoring on the women, and on Remy, is delicious.

  • I'm still kind of annoyed that things like ice dancing or ribbon twirling are considered Olympic events considering the IOC tried to cut out wrestling as an event from their roster and only restored it after massive protests.

    I feel for you, gentle friend, but unfortunately for you, TV ratings trump everything else; figure skating puts eyes on screens, and, well — how to put this delicately? — Greco-Roman wrestlers are more likely to pop inconvenient erections during prime time hours than ice dancers are.

    Bottom line (and believe me, as one who enjoys seeing inconvenient erections on television regardless of day-part, I'm not exacly thrilled about it): wrestling doesn't boost the bottom line as far as the broadcasters go, and the IOC's primary revenue stream comes from selling broadcast rights. Similarly, events that are ordinarily centerpieces of The X Games have found their way into the Olympic program; they're bringing in the younger part of the P18-34 demo.

    I will watch the Bell One, then the gay ones, then the Louisiana Ones.

  • Any chance that your mom might blog a bit about the costuming process? The food stylist from Hannibal has been blogging about that process, and it's been fascinating (see: http://janicepoonart.blogspot.... ) I imagine that it'd be interesting to hear more about her method, etc.

    Ok, I just tried to imdb your mom (and I feel dirty typing that, for some reason) and the House of Cards imdb pages are rather incomplete looking. Like, Robin Wright isn't even listed on half the episodes.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Ha! It is horribly incomplete. I was looking up Jimmi Simpson (he was one of my mom's favorite people) and "House of Cards" isn't listed on his IMDB page yet.

    But also, this is my mom's first job in TV/film rather than theater so we have to get her page set up. I will use this as evidence that we should do that sooner rather than later.

    Head shots and everything!

    I was trying to find the name of the press secretary and noticed that Gerald Mcready was listed as being in 2 episodes so I'd say you're right.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Wrong, it's what I was watching. Do catch up people, much to talk about.

  • Three_nineteen

    I'm on the episode that the picture is from right now.

  • lowercase_ryan

    get off the internet and get back to watching!
