Hell On Wheels ended it's second season with one of the largest ballets of death and destruction that I have ever seen on TV. I don't know how they continue from here because the bar has definitely been raised for whatever happens if there is a season three. If this is the end, however, then I am pretty satisfied with the way the story concluded. It wasn't always fair or pretty but Hell on Wheels was always compelling. The show had a strong style and tone and the characters stayed true to themselves right to the end. I don't know if I feel rewarded or punished for my love and loyalty for this program and that kind of internal struggle is why I love series television so much.
Homeland is still the most exciting show on television. No one plays manic intensity like Claire Daines. There was a moment at the height of danger when she flashed a tiny wicked smile after thinking her way out of danger - that was thrilling to see. There are so many layers to her performance.
Can we also discuss that twist at the end of the episode?? Are you kidding me? How confident are the creators in their story that they drop a bombshell like this in episode TWO of the second year? This is something that would usual end a season and leave you suffering for answers until the next season began. Now is the time for you to catch up on the best show on television so we can talk about it.
Amazing Race - saving this one up to enjoy with my Mom when she gets home from her own world travels. She will be sick of other places by that time but it's a show we enjoy watching together like Survivor and Big Brother.
I know it's on British TV so you have to look for the torrent but 8 Out Of 10 Cats is one of the funniest shows around. Set up like a fake game show, it's really just an excuse for funny people to goof of the news of the day. Long time watchers are rewarded when the host and comics give each other the business about their bizarre lifestyle quirks. It's quitisentially British comedy to me. Reminds me of the lost and missed 'Two Ronnies'.
What do you enjoy watching these days?
