2013-09-16 : TV Roundup (Spoilers!)
Well, so. I've gotten all defeatist about talking about game design, so I guess it's time to talk TV instead.
Spartacus! Meg and I are on episode 5 or so of War of the Damned. I'm pretty sure Spartacus is the best TV show, right? I'm having a hard time thinking of one that's definitely better. Vengeance was its worst season and I don't know but War of the Damned might be its best. I know there are Batiatus & Lucretia fans who'd disagree, but I'm really, really digging it so far.
When the show first started, I knew exactly one fact about the historical (or mythical) Spartacus. Now I know 10 facts or so. 2 or 3 of them are still to come, and ho boy. They're doozies.
I surprised myself by kind of liking season 2 of Game of Thrones. I think that Brand Robins' explanation of why I'd never enjoy it reoriented me to the point where I can enjoy it.
Is anyone else as dissatisfied with this latest season of Justified as I am? The thing where he arranges himself to be suspended so that he can set a guy up to be murdered without having a professional conflict of interest about it, I fear that the show's writers expect me to applaud that crap. I don't applaud it.
Also watching: The Tudors, Boardwalk Empire, Quick Draw, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Who Do You Think You Are?, Time Team, and god help me season one of Blue Bloods, which is maybe the most soothing cop show in history.
Anything good I should be sure to catch?
