What’s Coming in 2013

6 Dec

We have reached the mid-way point of the 2012-2013 TV season, as we slide into the holidays and say good-bye to 2012 lets take a peek at what’s on tap for 2013.

Downton Abbey season 3 Sunday at 9 on PBS – Season 3 has already aired on the BBC, if want to know what happens just Google.  Shirley MacLaine has joined the cast as Cora Crawley’s mother (Elizabeth McGovern). I guess Shirley and Maggie can try to out insult each other, my money is on Dame Maggie.  Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Mary (Michelle Dockery) are finally engaged, will they get married? Word on the street, Dan Steven’s is not returning for Season 4, will they pull a Becky Connor and slip us a new Matthew? The storyline I am most interested in is Bates (Brendan Coyle), will his lady-love Anna (Joanne Froggatt) be able to get him out of jail?  Somebody dies in childbirth this season. wonder who?downton abbey

 Bunheads season 2 9pm Monday on ABC Family – I was and still am a devoted Gilmore Girls fan, I had such high hopes for Amy Sherman Palladino‘s new show. I watched all season, there where bright spots, and a lot of Gilmore alumni showing up (we really need Scott Patterson) but nothing could save the show because the lead, Sutton Foster is horrible. Sure, she is a Tony award-winning musical theatre legend, but stage actors don’t always know how to pull it in for the small screen. Lets hope she got some coaching in the off-season. Yes I will be tuning in again, I want to see if it will rebound.

Girls season 2 9pm Sunday on HBO – I don’t why but I like this crazy crew of self-involved hipsters. Will success spoil Girls? Tune into season 2 and find out.

Enlightened season 2 9:30pm Sunday on HBO – It started slow, but with strong performances by Laura Dern and a tight ensemble this show hooked me. I can’t wait to see Amy stick it to the man this season. Revolution!!! And did I mention the addition of the dreamy Dermot Mulruney, mmmmmm hello salty goodness.

House of Lies season 2 10pm Sunday on Showtime – Don Cheadle and his band of merry consultants are back, with a hearty mix of outlandish plot twists and complicated characters Showtime has another winner on its hands. 

And finally the 2 shows I am looking most forward to

SuitsSuits season 2 10pm Thursday on USA – Some of the best writing on TV, a tight ensemble and a wardrobe to die for this show has it all. Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Mike (Patrick J. Adams) are back doing what they do best, wining cases with a healthy side dish of snark. 

Smash season 2 10pm Monday on NBC – Ok this was the show I loved to criticize, it was such an easy target and I should feel bad for taking advantage, but I don’t.  It asked for it, with its ridiculous plots, and one-dimensional characters. If it wasn’t for the incredible talent that is Megan Hilty and the scene stealing womanizing creep Derek, played expertly by Jack Davenport, I wouldn’t have stuck with it.  They fired the shows creator, and cut the cast, which all sounded promising until I saw the sneak preview.  Too much Katharine McPhee, and even though I love her, Jennifer Hudson is just stunt casting. smash s2

Returning Favorites

Fringe will complete it’s series run in early February.

Nashville my official guilty pleasure of new TV season.

Arrow I didn’t think lightning could strike twice but The CW did again with Arrow. Makes me miss Smallville seasons 1-5. Note to the Arrow show runner, stop using the Luthor mansion for the Queen mansion. Did you think we wouldn’t notice?Arrow

SAG Awards 2012 Predcitions

28 Jan

TNT will air the 2012 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards on Sunday January 29th at 8/7 central.

Here are my predictions, I select by who will win, who should win, and if applicable my dream win.

Cast in a Motion Picture  – Some people think this is the same as Best Picture. Based on SAG voting history the voters evaluate the film on the acting merits only.

The Artist

Bridesmaids

The Descendants – should win, this cast knocked it out of the park, there wasn’t a weak link among them. 

The Help – will win, don’t get me wrong there were some strong performances in this movie, but not everyone was up to the same level.  

Midnight in Paris

outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

Demian Bichir (A Better Life) – I only want him to win because he is soooo pretty. Between this and his Oscar nomination we will be seeing a lot more of him. Thank you members of SAG and the Academy, you know how to bring the pretty.

Gorge Clooney (The Descendants) – will win

Leonardo DiCaprio (J. Edgar)

Jean Dujardin (The Artist)
