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.

The Big Gap gabs about: Walking Dead Season 3 finale (Part 1)

YEAHHHHH I’M STILL ALIVE AT THE END OF THE SEASON!

Intrepid Big Gap writers Perr and Junch finally sit down and properly figure out what they thought about the season finale of Walking Dead.  Perr’s been doing a great job catching us up to speed with individual episodes, but the magnitude of the season finale requires a little more gabbing.  Read below the cut to see see what they thought.

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.

Mini-pressions: House of Cards

House of Cards Title

I have this crazy overwhelming sense of fangirling bubbling up inside of me when I think about House of Cards. Has this been a great season of great TV or what? It seems like with every show I seem to get into, my mind is being blown into smaller and smaller fragments that there’s nothing left and I’m just a vapid, vacuous TV viewer that doesn’t even bother to wipe the drool from her mouth. I feel like this show is the pinnacle of that. It reflects much greatness and structuring and performances that leave my brain a shivering, addicted naked thing in the hollowed space of my cranium.

With that said, here’s my mini-pression about House of Cards.
