What’s Good on the TV? (And Why) – Sunday May 5th, 2013
If you’re not too drunk to watch TV(is that possible?), it’s Sunday, so you have plenty of choices.
8:30 – Bob’s Burgers – “Carpe Museum” – Bob chaperones a school trip to the museum and experiences some father-daughter bonding with Louise, while Gene and his gang are on the lookout for exhibits with busts, and not the kind that are sculpted out of stone. FOX
Why Should I Watch? - This is the funniest animated show on television, with the best voice cast.
9:00 – Game of Thrones – “The Climb” - Robb considers a compromise to mend his alliance with House Frey; Melisandre visits the Riverlands; Tywin plans strategic unions for the Lannisters; Jaime’s fate is in Roose Bolton’s hands; Jon prepares for a dangerous climb with the Wildings. HBO
Why Should I Watch? - There’s so much going on! And it’s getting later in the season, so I’m sure things are just going to get crazier.
9:30 – American Dad! – “Lost in Space” - Jeff is abducted and put on a slave spaceship after discovering Roger’s secret, and the only way off is for him to prove to an evil alien emperor that Hayley was always his one true love. FOX
Why Should I Watch? - This is another great animated comedy. Don’t skip it because you don’t like Family Guy or The Cleveland Show.
10:00 – Mad Men – “For Immediate Release” - Roger changes tack to make new business; Pete has an awkward run-in with a client. AMC
Why Should I Watch? - It’s Mad Men, man. Christina Hendricks.
10:00 – Veep – “The Vic Allen Dinner” - An embarrassing photo of Selina is released by the White House; Mike regrets bonding with Kent over sailing; Jonah flaunts his executive parking space; Gary brings his girlfriend to lunch with the vice president. HBO
Why Should I Watch? - Veep is a hilarious show. If you’re not watching it I feel bad for you, because you’re missing out.
