What’s Good on the TV? (And Why) – Wednesday April 17th, 2013

The Americans - Covert WarNot much on tonight, but there are some gems in the choices. Or are there? I honestly don’t know. I’ve either yet to see these shows, or haven’t in a long time. Take my advice anyway!!!!

*

9:30 – How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) – “How to Live With the Academy Awards Party” - Polly tries to impress an old classmate. ABC
Why Should I Watch? - Sarah Chalke is cute, her parents on the show seem kooky, this episode title is extremely timely, and they seem to have a Friends (“The One…”) thing going on by starting the titles of the episodes with “How to Live…”

*

10:00 – Psych – “Right Turn or Left For Dead” - Shawn revisits a case involving a mysterious Swedish woman and imagines how he’d do things differently at the start of his investigation. USA
Why Should I Watch? - I haven’t watched this in a while, to be honest, but it’s about a Sherlock Holmes like guy that convinces the local police department that he’s a psychic in order to consult for them. Such a great show premise. You can make fun of shit like Medium(the woman that show is based on is AWFUL) in a fun detective show.

10:00 – The Americans – “Covert War” - Elizabeth requires Philip’s help to complete a dangerous mission. FX
Why Should I Watch? - This is supposed to be one of the best new shows. I just got all the episodes, now I just need to find the time to watch them.
