Remember when we used to complain that there was nothing good on? Especially in the summer months? Well Netflix, On Demand, and the DVR have killed that. There is too much TV to watch. It used to be that in the summer time that TV was done, but now it is just heating up again. Game of Thrones and Orphan Black are back on the air. The last episodes of Mad Men started a few weeks ago. Community is going strong. There will not be the usual summer time lull until August, and that time will be used to catch up everything we have missed.
Pretty much I am using this as my excuse for not reviewing the start of Game of Thrones or Orphan Black, but I have watched them, and so should you. Honestly they have gotten to the point I am not sure how to review them without spoilers. They are good. You should watch them if you have time. Though I understand if you don’t because they are not on their own anymore, so it is hard to clear space for yet another show. I think I am going to have to ditch a few shows next year. We will see which ones I watch going forward, but I am guessing Gotham will not make the cut.
With all the good TV starting to get made, anything mediocre will get tossed. It is just the way it has to be. We are witnessing the end of broadcast television, and channel execs are trying everything to get that one last water-cooler hit, and we get to reap the bounty. They are striving for that one last reason to watch their channel over the hundreds of others. It is great. Once TV as we used to know it dies will it still be good? I am not sure, but I guess we will find out soon enough.
