Saturday Night TV

 

My front room has been turned into a classroom this evening.

My wife and her boss are marking and standardising their GCSE coursework, this means I have been exiled to the computer room.

This is no bad thing normally, as it means I get the chance to catch up on my gaming, unfortunately as it stands I am on 10 game losing streak on League of legends which is dampening my will to play.

On the upside it has meant I have had the opportunity to watch the 2 part season finale to Fringe, and that’s 2 hours of my life well spent!

In the last 3 episodes we have had 2 Losties show up which has been awesome, as well as some pretty outstandingly mind blowing story arcs.

Fringe is the closest thing to a modern day X-files, a show that I was equally addicted to, there is less Aliens and more Science but the overall feel is very much the same. It has the same overarching mythology interspersed with the Monster of the Week format that the X-files did so well.

If you haven’t watched it yet I strongly recommend that you do.

Fringe thankfully has managed to secure another series, although I believe it is set to be the last. Sadly JJ’s other recent project Alcatraz failed to make the grade and has been cancelled.  Once again Fox (yeah we still haven’t forgiven you for Firefly) shuts down another show with real potential.

With Lost and 24 very much dead and buried and House set to follow them this year, I’m starting to run out of shows that I want to watch. There are still some things I am genuinely excited about such as Game of Thrones, Touch, Justified and Sons of Anarchy but the networks seem to relying more and more on tripe like BGT, X-Factor, The Voice and Dancing on Ice to fill their schedules.

Is this really all the viewing public want? Glorified Freak Shows where we can watch “performing” dogs?

Personally I want a little more from my TV.
