As spring – arguably the most exciting season for fans of TV – comes to an end, and the long summer lull begins, I want to outline what I will be writing about over the summer.
I will be without internet access for the first three weeks of July, but, disregarding that, I have a few projects planned for June, July, and August, once I catch up on my Hannibal, The Americans, and Mad Men coverage and Fargo and Game of Thrones end their seasons (in four and two weeks’ time, respectively):
- First of all, I will be continuing my coverage of Breaking Bad, which I promptly dropped when things began to get hectic.
- Secondly, My friend Sam Kilian and I will be covering the one (the other two being The Wire and The Sopranos) of HBO’s big three that I haven’t seen: Deadwood. Sam thinks that House of Cards is not only good, but great (hahahahahahaha), and he also claims Twin Peaks to be the best show of all time (an outrageous thing to suggest), but apart from those two minor (read: major) blips, he’s got pretty good taste, so it will be interesting to see what we think. We still haven’t fully sorted out how it’ll work, but I imagine we’ll cover an episode each per week, maybe doing crosstalks for what we deem to be important or milestone episodes.
- I may also do a recap of Veep – which is, for my money, the best comedy currently on TV – when Season 3 comes to an end next week, depending on how things work. I also have two requests to oblige, one being an episode of Mad Men, and the other being an episode of Doctor Who. If you have any requests, feel free to post them here.
That’s all. I’ve a reasonably academic year starting this September, so I’ll probably only be covering one show weekly, two max. I’ll have those delayed reviews up soon, and thanks again for reading.
