question-markWe haven’t done this in a while, but hey, this is the first Monday in I don’t know how long that we haven’t had a Sunday show to discuss. Homeland is done for the season, Mad Men‘s not back yet, Walking Dead is on hiatus…I hear crickets.

I fully intend to start a Mad Men rewatch, and update our reference sections.

Meanwhile, what are you watching? Network, cable, or catch-up via Netflix or DVD, what’s on your TV?

Professor Spouse and I are deeply engaged in Breaking Bad. I know, finally. We’ve watched through episode 4.08 and are racing to the finish so we’ll be ready for Better Call Saul. We’re also watching American Horror Story which, though still painfully uneven, may be having its best season. Agents of SHIELD wins our vote for most improved.

I have a confession to make, I’ve only just started watching Breaking Bad! (I’m up to the middle of Season 3)  It’s a riveting, disturbing, and heart-breaking show, yet it makes room for the humor in it’s extreme situations. I still turn away at the extreme violence, but I get it! In this spirit, and […]

Betty: I hate him. Henry: Hate is a strong word. I hate Nazis. — Mad Men, The Summer Man Everybody hates Nazis, right? Well, not everybody. Todd’s Uncle Jack evidently doesn’t mind them too much, and neither do his Aryan Brotherhood sidekicks, and Walt was willing to at least tolerate their, ahem, belief system if […]
