Channel Surfing

After a short hiatus from channel surfing, I am back talking about your favourite non mainstream shows. I would like to thank Sophie and Nick, who filled in for me last two weeks. Sophie brought an excellent show to my attention, which I only found out existed a week ago.

After a short hiatus from channel surfing, I am back talking about your favourite non mainstream shows. I would like to thank Sophie and Nick, who filled in for me last two weeks. Sophie brought an excellent show to my attention, which I only found out existed a week ago.

The Walking Dead:

The show, The Walking Dead, on the ever popular AMC, is one which I absolutely love. Mad Men and Breaking Bad are spectacular, and now AMC comes out with this gem. I know what you’re thinking; they are just cashing in on the whole supernatural craze that seems to be hitting young minds these days. However, this show is definitely not just some cheesy stuff that is thrown together to suit this new phase. Like True Blood, The Walking Dead is for a more mature audience with its very addicting and entertaining story line. This week we are left with four of the men from the camp going back into Atlanta to retrieve a bag of fire arms and a man that has been hand cuffed to the roof of a building. While the group are in Atlanta, they encounter a gang of Mexicans and have a conflict with them. The group also finds evidence about the man they are searching for. The group back at the camp runs into some problems of their own and we are now left with two episodes. Don’t worry though; the show has been renewed for another season. I also love that Frank Derabont is part of this series.

Boardwalk Empire:

Well things are definitely heating up on the Boardwalk! With only one episode left there are still a lot of questions to be answered. Jimmy has returned to Atlantic City to help Nucky with the criminal side of his empire after Nucky saw how well he had done in Chicago. Nucky’s brother Eli has been shot during a casino pick up and there was also an attempt on Nucky’s life while he walking on the famous boardwalk. So Nucky had no other option but to bring Jimmy back. Jimmy immediately made an impact in AC, and just as Jimmy thought he was about to solve his feud with Lucky Luciano, the long arm of the law grabbed him. Jimmy spent a short stint in prison until the witness was unfortunately killed, by then Luciano had fled back to New York and back under the wing of Arnold Rothstein. After a rat in Rothstein’s Atlantic City crew, the Dellissio Bothers, Nucky and Jimmy sent Arnold and Lucky a message through Myer Lansky. Things are definitely heating up on the boardwalk. Oh the show has just passed the time in history when women could vote, but who really cares, it’s a show about gangsters. Next week I will give you a wrap up on this wonderful HBO show.
