What TV Shows Are You Excited For?

Tomorrow brings September, and September brings the beginning of the fall season of television. Since I gave you the rundown of my summer shows back in June, I decided to also give you look into my viewing habits for the fall season. I’ve got a handful of shows returning from last year, and some new ones that I’m excited about. Here’s a list breaking them all down by night, all times Eastern, new shows in italics:

Sunday Night (New episodes start Sept. 26)
Family Guy – 8pm on Fox
Dexter – 9pm on Showtime
Bored To Death – 10pm on HBO
Eastbound And Down – 10:30pm on HBO

Quick Notes: I haven’t watched Family Guy on a real regular basis for awhile, but it’s one I catch every now and then, usually good for a few laughs. Dexter is one of the few serious shows I watch, and it’s really good. If you haven’t been watching this show go put it in your Netflix queue now, the first 2 seasons are available to stream. Bored To Death really only hooked me because of my desire to see everything Zach Galifianakis is in, but it actually got pretty good as the season went along last year. And then we’ve got Eastbound and Down, which hasn’t been on for a few years, but stars Danny Mcbride as a former MLB star having a hard time letting go of his fame… the first season was great, I hope they can reconnect and make another good run.

The rest of the week after the jump. Continue reading What TV Shows Are You Excited For?

What Movies Should I Be Watching?

As Hijinks Inc’s entertainment czar, I’ve been tasked with the challenge of reviewing movies, tv shows and games. I’ve brought you a wide range of reviews. Here’s a random 6 movies coming up in my Netflix queue:

We have 3 pairs here: Movies I’ve seen before and love (The Usual Suspects and Monkey Business), classics I’ve never seen before (Notorious and The Shining), movies that haven’t been released through Netflix yet (Cop Out and The Losers). This list is a good example of my taste in movies, very broad. I’ve been trying to work my way through the IMDB Top 250, or at least make a dent in it, and I’ve also got quite a few of the upcoming movies releases already in my queue, just waiting to be shot to the top when they release.

But maybe you’ve got some recommendations for me for a change. What movies would be worth my time watching, or do you think I might like based on some of my previous reviews? If you haven’t seen all of them, I’ve got a quick rundown of the ratings to give you an idea of my taste, after the break. Continue reading What Movies Should I Be Watching?
