Welcome. Covered shows

If you have been watching TV in the last five years or so, you will have realized that we are in a golden age of TV (that the departure of LOST has dimmed a little, but still…) Movies have all the money and effects, but TV has the good stories and acting that keep us hooked. There is time to delve into complete characters (Friday Night Lights) and create tension (Breaking Bad). It’s not just sitcoms anymore.

The fall season is coming up, and if you aren’t caught up, you can get most shows on DVD to prepare. If you don’t have Netflix, well, I don’t know what you are doing with your life, but fix that.

This blog is about all things TV (but if we see a good movie worth checking out, we will include that. There are so few lately). We will comment on what’s going on, make fun lists, debate, and scour the internet for spoilers and news. Here are the shows that will be covered. This is by no means an exhaustive list. All times are Eastern. Do your own math.

Shows that will never be covered:
Family Guy
Two and a Half Men
One Tree Hill
The Apprentice
House - Someone is sick, House is grumpy and he has a limp, the patient is about to die and no one knows why, people argue, House figures it out in the 11th hour, and the patient is cured. There. Show covered. For all time. And it’s never lupus.
Rules of Engagement
The Rachel Zoe Project

So never ask…


  1. Excellent list of shows! Two and a Half Men is the worst long-running show on any of the big 5 networks. I will forever be baffled by its popularity. It is good an right that it should be shunned. Where's Parks and Recreation, if I may ask?

  2. P and R is not currently covered, because we don't want to overload ourselves. But if one of the new shows stinks up the place, we will drop it and replace it with either that or Southland.
