Weekend Preview: Spoiled by Great TV

04.27.12 6 years ago 18 Comments

Fringe (Fox, 9 p.m.) – I’m going to watch some day, I swear, but until then, you Fringles (or whatever you call yourselves) will have to discuss the show in the comments. Play nice with the “Supernatural” fans.

The Simpsons (Fox, 8 p.m.) – Robert Lopez, one-third of the team behind The Book of Mormon, wrote a song for Steve Coogan for this episode. That’s about as good as you’re going to get in season 23.

Bob’s Burgers (Fox, 8:30 p.m.) – In a perfect world, “Bob’s Burgers” gets canceled by Fox, picked up by NBC, and is scheduled on Thursdays, where it replaces “The Office,” which, in turn, gets canceled by NBC, picked up by Fox, and is scheduled between other shows long since past their prime in “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy.” Seems feasible.

The Good Wife (CBS, 9 p.m.) – Season finale. By naming your episode “Dream Team,” “Good Wife,” you do realize that means Christian Laettner has to appear onscreen for at least five minutes, right? He’s been waiting by the phone for weeks now.

Game of Thrones (HBO, 9 p.m.) – Do NOT read the plot description on Zap 2 It. It’s rather spoiler-y. But this is going to be a fun one to talk about on Monday.

Mad Men (AMC, 10 p.m.) – It’s called “At the Codfish Ball,” referring to a song sung by Shirley Temple and Buddy Ebsen in the 1936 movie, Captain January. You know what else happened in 1936? Albert Fish was executed. I think I solved “Mad Men”: Don’s a cannibal.

Veep (HBO, 10 p.m.) – It’s already clear that “Veep” is the only show on TV that can make “filibuster reform” sound interesting.

Girls (HBO, 10:30 p.m.) – Sigh, I’m so glad we’re done talking about “Girls”
