Vying for your Attention

by Moe - 0 Comment(s)

There is so much good television- seriously good television- now on Sunday nights it is getting hard to know where to place your eyeballs. Which is why of course there are PVR's and other ways to watch new epsiodes at a time of your choosing. I myself have deliberatly avoided getting a PVR- not because I am a Luddite, but because I fear it I had one I would never again get anything else done. I have numerous friends who record everything and who are feeling so back-logged in their viewing that they are starting to suffer from completion anxiety.

Some of the shows currently vying for your attention are the following:

Mad Men Season 5- after a 17 month hiatus the multi emmy winning series is back with all of the cast continuing to behave very badly. But they do it with such intensity it is hard to resist. Catch up on the first 1 2 3 4 seasons and see what the fuss is all about.

Game of Thrones--- the highly anticipated second season of the hugely popular George RR Martin series started on HBO on April 1st. Catch up on the first season, but be prepared for a long wait on this one. We also have it as a Graphix Novel, The sound track from the first season, from our special collection in the talking book format, and of course all of the books. If you are going the book route, you have a lot of reading ahead of you. Start with Song of Ice and Fire, then Clash of Kings ,next a Storm of swords---and more and more and more.

Season 3 of the Good Wife: Deemed "THE BEST SHOW ON TV" by Entertainment Weekly, this smart legal drama stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Julianna Margulies. Watch 1 and 2---easy to get a hold of.
