This is How I Quit the Internet

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | March 9, 2014 | Comments ()


Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey on Fox at 9:00pm ET.

Resurrection on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. I’ve spent some of my weekend watching the show this is based on, The Returned (Les Revenants if you want to be French about it) which is lovely and subtly creepy, and very good about letting the mystery unfold at its own pace. I have no hope that the American version will do the same.

True Detective on HBO at 9:00pm ET. First season finale. This is one of the only shows that I’ve really tried to remain spoiler free on, as I might be getting HBO soon and want to see it “clean” so to speak. So, viewers, give me a window of how long I’m going to have to get someone else to pre-screen Facebook or Twitter for me. A day? Two days? I know I’m SOL when the show is actually airing since people seem physically incapable of not disseminating spoilery stuff the minute it happens on their TV like some strange kind of social media tourettes. The best example I’ve found of this is that people who read the A Song of Ice and Fire series kept the Red Wedding quiet for YEARS and the minute it was on TV everyone knew the next day. So, yeah. Be better than that.

The Walking Dead on AMC at 9:00pm ET.

Lindsay on OWN at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere.

Genevieve Burgess may end up giving up Twitter for Lent after all, you spoiling freaks.
