Summer TV I’ve Been Watching

Suits - Season 3

Smile! Summer TV ain’t so bad.

Mid-season TV! My impression of programming for summer fillers has always been pessimistic, especially if they’re fresh concepts. Networks at this time are like, “Everyone is travelling, so let’s just throw some random bullshit and see what sticks”. You usually don’t get a Mad Men or The Killing every time, you know? They only put on their serious hats in time for Fall.

So what’s crap and what’s worth watching? Here’s stuff new and old.

New Favourite Band: Rudimental

And somewhere along the way, I was entranced by the effectively scary-yet-extremely personable Mads Mikkelsen, who very easily made me forget how iconic Anthony Hopkins really was in the same title role.

“Prey” & “This Sorrowful Life” – The Walking Dead Recap

walkingdead s3 title

Today will be a lowdown of two episodes: Andrea finally wakes up from her Governor-hazed delusion after countless episodes of people trying to slap the reality into her. I hate Andrea, but y’know, it isn’t too bad. And once we’re out of the way with filler, onto the next ep that has got my boyfriend and I feeling horribly depressed by its end. It hurts, oh yes, it hurts.
