The Walking Dead returned last night, as I’m sure many of you are aware. I haven’t watched it yet and can’t say I’m looking forward to it either, but, as is so often my way, I am stuck with this one, for better or for (more often) worse, so I’ll be getting around to it eventually. Still mad about Beth. Still battling a fierce girl-crush on Carol. That’s about all I’ve got to say. Here’s hoping they don’t just do the same ol’, same ‘ol again this year. (Why I would hold out hope against all evidence to the contrary, I cannot explain. See above re: as is so often my way.)
Also coming up this week:
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin – CW – 8pm, 8:30pm – The first one is new, but is described as a “musical comedy,” so I’m automatically out. And the second one got some fairly decent reviews but, oh god, I’m tired of talking about the CW.
Fargo – FX – 10pm – I don’t know how other people felt about season one of this crazy show, but I absolutely loved it. It was exactly what I wanted it to be: close enough to the original film to make it okay by me they used the same name, but not so close I got annoyed at the ways in which it failed hit the right notes. It was funny and weird, and it worked. This season takes us back to when Keith Carradine’s character was young, I have read. It also brings Ted Danson back to us, post-CSI (I’m ignoring the fact he’s also now on CSI:Cyber, because NO, TED!), which is good news for everybody. Can’t wait!
Chicago Fire – NBC – 10pm – Once you go Rescue Me, you never go back.
Truth Be Told – NBC – 8:30pm – Sit-com with Mark-Paul Gosselaar about “two diverse couples for whom no topic is off-limits.” Is one of the topics Saved by the Bell? No? Well, then.
Satisfaction – USA – 10pm. Apparently, this is season two, which means there was a season one — at least, I think that’s how the math works. Also apparently: it’s about a dude who finds out his wife has been seeing a male escort, so he decides to become a male escort. To . . . save their marriage? We couldn’t just try, you know, communicating? Counseling? I confess I don’t quite follow dude’s logic, there, but so it goes with dudes sometimes, especially when you missed season one. I was all set to write this one off (again?), but then I read this review and, well, damned if it doesn’t sound kind of intriguing. God help me, I might dig into the pilot at some point and see what happens.
