Whew. Last night's season premiere of The Walking Dead was fantastic. I really enjoyed the fact that they didn't spend the entire season at Terminus. Though I suspect the season will play out with the consequences of what happened in this episode since some of the terminus characters are going to be back. Great after credit scene too. I don't want to say more and spoil it for anybody.
I really disliked the first episode of Gotham, mostly because it felt very cliche. Taking a cop hostage in a precinct, with Gordon talking him down. It was bad. Most of the dialogue was poorly done I felt. But it's Donal Logue, and that guy is worth watching, so I stuck around and I enjoyed the second episode. A lot more naturalistic on the acting front, and the writing was better. So I'll give the series a shot. I have a feeling it will be hit or miss for me. The guy playing Gordon is not an actor I care for.
Sons of Anarchy has sort of become "Jax kills (or beats to a bloody pulp) all the extras and guests stars, while the main cast remains unscathed, and the narrative untouched" which I find to be mildly frustrating. It reminds me a lot of The Shield's final season, where you're waiting for everything to crack open and change utterly and it never really did. I have a feeling though SOA will not go that route. I'm still enjoying the show though and I will miss it.
There is not enough mature, intelligent programing on the air to be losing stuff like this and Longmire. But that's TV.
True Detective could certainly scratch that itch.
