What I’m Watching, April 2013

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones


  • Game of Thrones (HBO): Game of Thrones is the best of the best series in a spring season of a lot of great dramas.
  • Veep (HBO): I don’t think there’s been a lot of good comedies on TV recently but Veep is a big exception.
  • Mad Men (AMC): I think Mad Men‘s finest days might be behind it, but it’s still a great show.


  • The Americans (FX): I honestly didn’t think that The Americans was going to be a good show, let alone a great one when I first heard about it. How happy I am to be wrong.



  • Doctor Who (BBC America): Episodes of Doctor Who this year have been spotty at best but I still dig the Doctor and his new companion.

On the DVR

  • Orphan Black (BBC America): I watched one episode of Orphan Black and liked it but never got into it enough to check out other ones. All episodes are still on my DVR and I think I’ll end up watching them someday soon.

Looking forward to…

  • Arrested Development (Netflix, May 26): I think the return of my all-time favorite TV series of the last decade is a very big deal, not only for the return of the Bluth family but also for Netflix’s continuing commitment to quality original series.
  • The Bridge (FX, July)
  • Low Winter Sun (AMC, Summer)
