The Santa Clarita Diet

Great news! Timothy Olyphant is back on our screens. He of stardom from one of the greatest TV shows of the decade, Justified. He is starring with an actress new to our screens, a certain Drew Blyth Barrymore. I believe she has had a part to play in certain films such as E.T. and 50 First Dates.

The background story is 'Mom is now addicted to human flesh'. A simple enough story as seen in their new TV show 'The Santa Clarita Diet'.



Finally a TV show I can watch with the wife!

Let me know if you enjoy it too.

I Like Clever TV Shows

As you are no doubt aware, I write a lot about TV shows.

I like TV.

I like clever TV shows.There are some amazing shows out there; Preacher, Luke Cage, Game of Thrones, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and of course, Last Week with John Oliver.

Recently there have been a quite a few heinously bad shows - Fuller House, Flaked, Frequency,

There are also some shows that I'm unsure of;

1. This Is Us - Wow, just wow. Watch it. Seriously good acting. Great plot. Just amazing. But its only been one episode so lets see where it goes.

2. Roadies. Interesting story line. Fun filled cast with, yet again, interesting twists and turns.

3. HIM - completely unusual tv show from the UK. A teenager with special powers comes to terms with it.

4. Lucifer. Some amazing acting, good storylines and wholly interesting. But then it has it's own cliches too.

5. American Housewife. I was very excited to watch this show, but as someone stated:
“Mike & Molly’s” Katy Mixon gets her own sitcom. Too bad it’s not funny." [ooh burn!]

Gilmore Girls is Coming Back!

I don't gush.

I don't feel that there wasn't a good ending to any show. Except Firefly (they was robbed).

Gilmore Girls had its day. it had a good few seasons and then went on it's way.

My wife has been binging on the original series again and what struck me mainly was just how bad a mother and role model Lauren Graham's character was. Really, really bad.

Netflix has picked up the show, as they did with the amazing Longmire, and they have gotten everyone back.

The trailer for the new 4-part series 'Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life' is pretty damn amazing!



It picks up 9 years after the youngest Lorelai moves on from Yale. That trailer though, pretty darn amazing.

Enjoy.

On Being An Old Git

I was just thinking the other day, how pathetic things are that so many 'new ideas' are just rehashing old ones.

Some have worked (Sherlock, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek) and some have failed miserably (Dukes of Hazzard, Ghostbusters) and others are still awaiting the court's decision:

Fuller House
X-Files ( just 6 episodes ordered by Fox)
Coach
Twin peaks
XENA!!!
Gilmore Girls

And then, when I thought it couldn't get any worse, there is this;



According to this article in the Australian website news.com.au the flip phone is making a come back. I even checked the date, to make sure it isn't 1st April!

On the bright side, my 4 year old is thoroughly enjoying the original Full House that she can watch on Netflix.

Whats Next?

Summer is just around the corner. Honest!

You know what that means? Films and tv shows coming back. Oh yeah!

Unless you're on Netflix of course, in which case, just watch the whole season of whatever you want in one binge session. My recommendations for Netflix are: Sherlock, Longmire, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.

Films that I'm excited about are really just this one, because, hey, Bad guys v Bad Giys - does it get any better?



Here is the Game of Thrones latest trailer, just because I can!

Longmire Is Back



The long awaited Season 4 of the critically acclaimed Longmire is coming soon on Netflix.

Here is the trailer:



So whats it about? Its a cowboy story, a Western if you will. But its more than that.

There's drama, there's comedy, there's romance - a little bit of everything.

Watch it. Honest. it's great.

Oh, and thanks, Netflix - you rock!

Whilst The Cats Away

The family is out of town for a few weeks, so I get to watch what I want on TV.

I've finished the Hobbit trilogy, this season of Deadliest Catch and Gold Rush and am now going to Netflix to watch a few documentaries.

Whilst on Netflix I'll be watching my beloved Longmire. It truly is an epic TV show. Epic scenery, epic storylines and just blinking epic!


So epic is Longmire that after it was cancelled by A&E that Netflix picked it up. Thats a whole other story though!

Another TV show I will be looking out for is new, and is Heroes Reborn, here's a sneak peek;



It looks very 'interesting' to say the least.

The future looks good - for my tv viewing at least!

Longmire Lives!

Longmire, the modern-day cowboy film that was A&E's second most popular show last year (after Duck Dynasty), is going to have a new lease of life under the most auspicious of hosts, Netflix.

I doubt very much that anything I wrote had anything to do with it, but hey, I can dream!

Netflix, by the way, now have at least one new customer - moi - who will be paying a lot of attention to whatever adverts Netflix puts my way.



According to Engadget.com:

"the show's demographic is much older than most A&E shows, but Longmire had the highest viewership of any scripted series on the channel. If you aren't familiar, the plot centers around rural Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire and his crime-fighting chronicles based on the novels of Craig Johnson -- including a series-spanning search for his wife's killer. The set of new episodes will air in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand when they stream next year."

So I'm getting old I guess...
