having sunday tv withdrawal as all my shows have ended and the newer ones are a few weeks away. fortunately i downloaded the old hbo series rome which i am chugging through at a too rapid pace. apparently despite its reasonable success hbo deemed it too expensive to continue but it was only supposed to be one season to begin with so i guess the second should be considered good fortune.

interesting to see how this duck dynasty business plays out. if you dont know one of the dudes was interviewed by gq and said some reliably retrograde things about homosexuals and african americans and for that he was suspended from the current shooting schedule. but the network already has an entire season shot. the show is hugely popular. i think the previous season finale had 14 million viewers which is huge especially for a cable show but these days those are top 5 numbers for any show. so how do they proceed? will advertisers be scared off even if the numbers remain high? got to assume that most viewers of that show wont be turned off enough by the professed sentiments to not tune in but hard to believe there wont be pressure put on the advertisers by rights activists. maybe it will all blow over, at least one imagines that the network and advertisers hope it might. 

still i wonder if there is a home on tv for this show in the future or is it destined for the internet in some capacity? or will it just be put out to pasture? how much tripe is there to be mined from their antics?

Is that it for Homeland? Forever? Not sure where they can go from here.

i havent watched it yet but i have the first season and i keep seeing positive reviews.

Black Mirror gets you like that: First you're giggling, then you're sobbing. It's the rare show that unsettles just as much as it entertains. It rejects easy descriptors, but a first step might be calling it a Twilight Zone for the Information Age...
