5 Shows After Dark: Bringing in the Big Guns. And Also a Sidearm.
“Amish Mafia” on Discovery at 8:00pm ET. This episode is called “The Book of Merlin” and it’s a two hour special and I’m sure there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation for why a show about Amish people has an episode involving Merlin (or at least a book about him anyway) and frankly, I don’t want to know what it is. I’m enjoying making up my own explanations far more than I would enjoy the truth.
“Downton Abbey” on PBS at 9:00pm ET.
“Girls” on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Lena Dunham was on “The Daily Show” the other night and seemed like a great person. Still haven’t seen a single episode of “Girls” so I have no actual opinions on it, but I’m positive on Ms.Dunham herself.
“Shameless” on Showtime at 9:00pm ET.
“Hawaii Five-0” on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Special night. You get a double dose of “Hawaii Five-0” this week! Two chances to see what ridiculous situations they make up to ensure that Alex O’Loughlin gets to chase down physically inferior humans and throw them around in handcuffs, while Scott Caan looks on from his apple box and quips in a vaguely Jersey-ish accent. Fun for everyone!
