Hello! I know its been a while since I last shared with you. But the time has never been better. This winter marks the arrival of some epic premiere’s. One being AMC’s Preacher; a dark “religulous” fantasy tale adapted for television based off the cult comic by Garth Ennis and illustrator Steve Dillon! I cannot begin to tell you how stoked I am about this show! I plan to share more of my thoughts on it and write weekly episode reviews after the premiere. Siked!
From AMC to A&E, a new but familiar tale is set to premiere in early March. Damien, based on the anti-christ seventies film will star the sexy Bradley James (Merlin) as the title character. The show also stars Golden Globe winning actress Barbara Hershey and DC Comic’s Megalyn Echikunwoke (Vixen) as costar. This is another one I am super excited to watch! A new trailer for the show was just released and posted to the popular entertainment website, Deadline.
ABC’s starting line-up is back with the bold season two premiere of the critically acclaimed ensemble drama American Crime. Next month, Thursdays heat up again with the networks powerhouse triple threats Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal , and How to Get Away with Murder returning from mid-season breaks. Although I’ve long stopped watching Grey’s Anatomy, the jury’s out on whether I will make it through the final episodes of Scandal this season, but here’s hoping. As for How to Get Away with Murder, all I can say is, Hell yeah, bring it Ms. Keating!
On the HBO front, Winter is indeed coming with an intriguing collaboration between Terrence Winter (The Sopranos), Oscar winning director, Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas), Rock front man Mick Jagger (The Rolling Stones). The raunchy period music drama, Vinyl, will star Boardwalk Empire fan favorite Bobby Cannavale as a coke snorting music mogul. Also, no HBO winter is complete without the premiere of a new season of the universally popular fantasy epic Game of Thrones. Finally, the show has caught up with it’s source material, and rumors are flying that we will indeed see story arcs and resolutions, unknown to book fans and television fans alike.
So on that note, and aside from the usual suspects (the return of The Walking Dead, Sleepy Hollow, and Empire) and additional premieres that I hope to cover in the near future, there are some gems to behold as the Fall/Winter television seasons wind down this year. So, grab a blanket, curl up on that comfy chair and, grab your popcorn. Are you ready for some Ciggy TV?
Until next time!
