Sorry I’ve been remiss in posting for the last few weeks. The weather’s just starting to improve here in the NE so I’ve been taking advantage by leaving my cave to bask in the sunlight. Also, I haven’t been inspired much by tv lately? Couple things:
-Game of Thrones returns next Sunday. This is when my blog will really be back in action. I’m more convinced than ever that Jon Snow will be resurrected. I can’t wait to see some new characters and see what Tyrion is up to. HBO is being coy and hasn’t put the title or description up on my guide yet.
-Better Call Saul is on fire. The finale is tomorrow night and I have no idea what might happen. Chuck took a nasty fall but it looks like in the preview that he’s not dead (at least not yet). I feel like Mike will have something to do with Hector’s ending up in a wheelchair but I’m not sure how yet. Ultimately, I think that Gus Fring will be impressed by Mike’s gumption and hire him on, but that’s probably a future season development.
-I thought the Billions finale was great. The show was a bit of a slow burn the previous few episodes but the payoffs in the finale were worth it. I was glad to see Wendy go her own way from both Axe and her ugly husband (by ugly I mean both inside and out). My birthday wish this year was that Chuck would be recast for next season. However, now that I told you my wish, but more likely because it’s Paul Giamatti, it’s never gonna happen. Don’t get me wrong, I like Paul Giamatti, but he is overplaying this role and ruining the show for me.
-The Walking Dead finale sucked. I’m seriously contemplating breaking up with this show after that. The ending was so lazy and corporate. All they did was drive around in the RV for the entire episode. I don’t even care who got beaten, even if it was Daryl or Michonne, who I still like. The show has ruined Carol’s character and turned her into some religious/ethical nut (wait is that an oxymoron?). I watched the first episode of Fear TWD and that sucked too. Definitely not investing any more time there. I hate the characters and can’t wait until they get chomped.
-House of Lies is back. I believe this is the last season and so far, so good. Kristen Bell looks great this season. I’m hoping Marty’s loathsome ex-wife is off the show for good but I doubt it. Thanks to Showtime for giving the show a proper sendoff.
That’s all for now. Be back soon to update you on what I’ve been reading.
