Winter is coming as Game of Thrones characters are so fond of saying and with it a whole new slew of television programs to keep you warm when the rains and snow must needs keep you locked up indoors where it’s safe and warm and where no wargs will get you.
Already, if you are in the UK, you can already enjoy Boardwalk Empire starring Steve Buscemi. You can still get seasons 1 to 4 for about 3 more weeks, and season 5 is already airing on Saturdays at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
Also on Sky are Scandal, Legends, and Forever, where Ioan Gruffudd is a Dorian Grey/ Sherlock Holmes hybrid (can’t go wrong with that, can you?). And a brand new season of the Walking Dead airs on Fox. If you don’t already know you can get the NOW TV Entertainment Bundle for £4.99 per month, though this figure is set to increase to £6.99 from the 16th of October. NOW TV for me is the cheapest way of getting quality TV without being tied down to a contract. Just pay monthly for an entertainment or movie package, sit back, and enjoy.
Gotham will also be airing on Channel 5 in the UK on Mondays at 9pm starting from the 13th of October. Gotham is what a Batman movie would be without Batman. But wait! just before you skip the next few lines citing disinterest I would say give it a go. It has a great cast with headliners Ben McKenzie (Southland, the O.C.), playing Jim Gordon, and Jada Pinkett Smith (the Matrix films) staring, as well as a great premise, which you can see on billboards and plastered on red buses around London: Before there was Batman there was Gotham.
As a movie it may not have worked, but as a television show it’s bound to at least be different. And hopefully they’ll stir clear of putting their villains in costume now that Bats won’t be making an appearance. Batman villains have always been the best in comic books, and the most realistic to boot, and if their more eccentric traits are downplayed in favour of realism then this could be an enjoyable detective series.
And speaking of costumes the Flash will air on Sky 1 from 28th October 2014 at 8pm.
Don’t forget Tyrant on Fox, as well as all ondemand shows: Mildred Pierce on Sky Atlantic; Prison Break, Lost, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and Justified also on Sky, and Homeland (without Brody) on Channel 4.
Oh yeah, then there’s Leftovers on Sky Atlantic. Nobody likes leftovers. ‘Nough said. Let me know what shows you are stocked about this winter in the comments section. Peace.
