Resin Heroes

What to watch this spring

1-1Up until a few months ago I was down in the dumps over the state of TV. Sure, there were a few good things on, but for the most part the majority of the programs airing stunk. And while I won’t argue that most TV still stinks, I would say that over the last few months a few great shows have debuted both on cable and online.

Here’s what I’m liking:

  • House of Cards, Netflix. Even though the entire series is currently available online, I’ve been treating this one like a regular show and only watching one episode a week.
  • The Walking Dead, AMC 9PM Sundays. Is The Walking Dead as good as it once was? Nope. Is is still better than most everything else out there? Yep.
  • Bates Motel, A&E 10PM Mondays. Only one episode of this has aired to date, but it’s got a lot of promise.
  • The Americans, FX 10PM Wednesdays. Currently this one is my favorite show on TV. It’s that show that I wish each show was three hours long instead of one and count the days before each new episode.

Returning soon:
