30 Days of Television - Day 12 - A episode you’ve watched more than 5 times - In Plain Sight 01x04, Trojan Horst
In Plain Sight - Mary & Marshall
Mary and Marshall are US Marshalls with Witness Protection in Albuquerque, NM. Yeah, he’s a Marshall named Marshall.
They’re partners, Mary’s the wild card, Marshall the straight guy.
Fans of unrequited sexual tension and a well-built buddy partnership would like this show. Mary and Marshall care about each other even as they drive each other nuts. Marshall has some of the best lines as he and Mary match wits and dig at each other.
ROYAL PAINS RAP.
I frickin love USA Network.
Royal Pains - Hank Med.
One of the many reasons to love the USA Network is their ability to make fun of themselves. A Royal Pain rap as ad for the new show?! Yes. Please.
Look for and ENJOY the cameos from Neal Caffrey of White Collar and Michael Weston of Burn Notice.
JUSTIFIED Season 2 Teaser - Raylan talks about Han shooting first.
Holy crap, Timothy Olyphant talking about Star Wars may be the sexiest thing I’ve ever witnessed.
Justified - Raylan Givens
Raylan Givens is a shoot first, ask questions later US Marshall. Because of his tendency to shoot bad guys he’s been transferred from Miami back to his home state of Tennesse. A place he never wanted to return to as it has his criminal father, angry ex-wife, and troublemaker-filled hometown. Raylan’s not a quitter, though, so he does what he does best and takes care of everyone. Usually with his witty charm and slow drawl. But then, with bullets.
How can you say no to a show about a trigger happy US Marshall that looks like Timothy Olyphant AND knows about Star Wars?!
I’m just so happy that this exists.
Sherlock, BBC - Dr. John Watson & Sherlock Holmes
Earlier this year the BBC aired a version of Sherlock Holmes set in present day London. It was amazing. Benedict Cumberbatch (not kidding about his name) and Martin Freeman play Holmes and Watson and are perfect as the crime solving pair of detectives.
I’m posting this because I loved this show (all three episodes, STOOPID Brits and their short “seasons”) and this is my favorite Lonely Island song.
If you like Sherlock Holmes at all, take a couple hours and watch the first series of Sherlock. The writing is amazing, the filming is fun and will keep you on your toes, and Cumberbatch and Freeman are a joy to behold.
This show is on the CW, but you shouldn’t judge it because of that. Really.
If you like ghosts, zombies, demons, angels, christian mythos, hauntings, shapeshifters, werewolves, and two SMOKIN HOT lead actors you should really give this show a try. It’s fun and ridiculous and heart-breaking and - surprisingly enough - has some of the best acting on TV.
Also: How brilliant is this advertising. Gotta give it a shot for this alone.
“Hello, Stonehenge! Who takes the Pandorica, takes the universe, but, bad news everyone, ‘cause guess who! Ha! Listen, you lot you’re all whizzing about. It’s really very distracting. Could you all just stay still a minute because I AM TALKING! Now the question of the hour is, “Who’s got the Pandorica?” Answer: I do. Next question: Who’s coming to take it from me? Come on! Look at me! No plan, no back-up, no weapons! Oh, and something else I don’t have: Anything to lose! So! If you’re sitting up there in your silly little spaceships with all your silly little guns and you’ve got any plans on taking the Pandorica tonight, just remember who’s standing in your way! Remember every black day I ever stopped you and then, and then… do the smart thing: Let somebody else try first.”
Doctor Who - Eleven
Another Doctor Who post…but it’s just that good. This is the Eleventh regeneration of the main character, the Doctor. He’s surrounded by every baddie he’s ever faced and is still mouthing off. Gotta love a man with that kind of…charisma.
Start with the reboot from 2005, it’s the best place to dive in to this rich and diverse show. Plus, the Ninth Doctor (Nine) runs around in a leather jacket for the season. Who doesn’t like that?
oh, the imagery.
Black Books - Manny & Bernard
This show is another gem from across the pond. Set in an indie bookstore it is the story of Bernard Black, owner, his assistant, Manny, and friend Fran. They drink too much, smoke inside, and yell at customers. It’s a dream come true for anyone who’s worked in retail.
The accents and Bernard’s crotchety twitchyness helps.
Covert Affairs - Auggie & Annie
This show is fun because it’s all about the CIA. Oh, you know you’re curious about spies and secret codes. Don’t lie.
Auggie is the best part, witty, ironic, supportive, and he looks great without his shirt on. It’s also fun seeing more of Piper Perabu.
Happy Valentine’s Day by Covert Affairs’ Auggie Anderson and Annie Walker.
White Collar - Neal Caffrey & Peter Burke
If you like the relationships between characters, White Collar is for you. It’s also got a fun Ocean’s Eleven con-vibe to it. The main attraction is these two, though. Matt Bomer (with the hat) and Tim DeKay play off each other really well. The characters, Neal and Peter, really enjoy each others’ company, as much as Peter may deny it.
