    TV you're looking forward to

    Post by Koblentz on Thu Dec 02, 2010 2:37 pm

    Good TV these days is hard to find. It's not so much that no one's making it; rather it's the sheer volume of shit you have to wade through to find it. Too much reality TV, cheap sitcoms, and boring dramas cashing in on the latest trend.

    But there is hope! This fall saw a lot of additions to the long list of great TV dramas, from FX's Terriers to AMC's The Walking Dead.

    Here's what I'm looking forward to for Winter/Spring 2011.

    Lights Out
    - FX - premiers January 11, 2011
    An FX drama about boxing and its associated underworld. Looks dark and gritty. Given FX's track record with dramas so far, it's going to be good TV.

    Justified
    - FX - season 2 premiers February 2011
    Another FX drama, thjs time about a trigger-happy US Marshal who returns to his hometown in eastern Kentucky. Season 1 was awesome, very character-driven, high body-count.

    Breakout Kings
    - A&E - premiers "early 2011"
    Not much info here. Wikipedia on the premise: "A squad of U.S. marshals team up with ex-cons to work together on tracking down prison escapees." Sounds like fun!

    The Chicago Code - Fox - premieres February 7, 2011
    I'm really excited about this one. It's from the creators of the Shield, and stares Jason Clarke, an actor from one of my favorite short-lived series of all time Brotherhood. It's about one of Chicago's toughest cops trying to take down corruption as well as crime. It looks very fast paced.

    I so want to contribute to this but unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea what TV shows are coming out in the US. I'm seriously itching to watch The Walking Dead though.

    Any ideas where I should head to find out what's due out next year? I'd appreciate the help. Catface

    The TV IV is a good resource for schedules and upcoming shows, though some articles are fairly light on content (it's a wiki).

    American network TV is pretty terrible these days. Network audiences don't have the attention span for serious or well-crafted dramas. Cable, basic and subscription, is where all the good TV can be found these days.

    Case in point, Conan is ripping it up on TBS.
