What’s Good on the TV? (And Why) – Thursday April 18th, 2013
The best existing comedy, the best new comedy, and the best new dramatic show are all on tonight!
8:00 – Community – “Intro to Knots” – Annie invites Professor Cornwallis to Jeff’s holiday party in hopes of earning his favor. The gang soon learn, however, that he intends to give them a bad grade, so they launch into action. NBC
Why Should I Watch? - If you’re a fan of this show I have a strong feeling this is its last season. And Alison Brie. You should watch this for her too.
9:00 – Parks and Recreation – “Article Two” – Leslie’s latest goal is to get rid of laws that no longer make sense, while April and Ron receive management training from Chris. NBC
Why Should I Watch? – This is almost certainly the best comedy on television. It needs more seasons, so WATCH IT!
9:30 – Parks and Recreation – “Jerry’s Retirement” - Leslie wants to do something special to celebrate Jerry’s retirement. NBC
Why Should I Watch? – Same thing I said for the last one. Ron Swanson.
10:00 – Hannibal – “Potage” - Will and Jack scramble to stop a murderer who harvests victims’ organs while they’re still alive. NBC
Why Should I Watch? – This show is seriously great. I’m talking about possibly best new show of 2013 great. You should really watch it.
10:00 – The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman – “Ben Throws a Party” - It’s the season one finale! Comedy Central
Why Should I Watch? - This show is very very funny. Ben Hoffman is a Tom Green-esque weirdo, and it makes his show all the more fun to watch.
10:30 – Nathan For You – “Private Investigator; Taxi Company” – A private investigator agrees to be spied on for a day; and a taxi company targets shy customers. Comedy Central
Why Should I Watch? - You know how I said The Ben Show is “very very funny”? Well, this show is even better. Nathan Fielder is proving himself to be something of a comedic genius.
12:00 – Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell – “Welcome to Hell” - A new live-action workplace comedy about Gary, an associate demon, as he attempts to capture souls on earth in order to climb the corporate ladder of the underworld. Adult Swim
Why Should I Watch? - It’s fun to try and make topics a lot of people are afraid of funny. It’s going to be super weird, and probably really messed up. I just hope it’s funny/entertaining.
