The Point Where Popular Science Loses Me
Call the Midwife on PBS at 8:00pm ET.
Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey on Fox at 9:00pm ET. I realize that many of you love this show and I’m thrilled that it’s on the air and getting attention. However. A great deal of it sits at that place where science runs into vague mysticism or hippie tendencies and that’s about where I start to tune out. I’m willing to entirely attribute this to flaws that are inherent to me as a person and not to the show, Carl Sagan, or Neil Degrasse Tyson. I’m simply broken. Tonight’s episode is called “Sisters of the Sun” and I’ll spare you the news of what my eyebrows did when I saw that.
Game of Thrones on HBO at 9:00pm ET.
The Good Wife on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Oh, right, we’re back to that point in the year when Sunday night is apparently the only night to bother watching television.
The Bletchley Circle on PBS at 10:00pm ET. And for me, this is the victim of the Sunday over-scheduling. I watched the first season of this one Netflix and enjoyed it, but not enough to make time for it on an already packed night of television. Sorry, code-breaking ladies, I will catch up with you in a few months.
Mad Men on AMC at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess doesn’t think giant burning balls of gas floating in space have family members.
