Nightfly highlights his favorite TV programs, movie posters and film trailers from the week of 11/18.
Many shows took last week off so my total hours viewed amount dropped down to just thirty-eight, twenty-one of which I spent watching hour-long scripted dramas. For the record, unlike Pysch, which very often revolves around murder, I don't place the new TBS show Wedding Band on the hour-long dramas list, I instead put that series in competition in my Outstanding Sitcoms section. The Tiffany network (i.e., CBS) shows up the most in this column's drama list but pay-cable channel Showtime takes the top spot there thanks to an exceptionally strong episode of Dexter. FOX had a good week in my sitcoms category, though ABC claims that list's no.1 slot for a riotously funny epi of Don't Trust the B---- in Apt.23. Teen comedy iCarly garnered top honors on my teen list for it's affective hour-long series finale, and amongst Reality Shows, both NBC and BBC-America made dual appearances on a list that was topped by a truly insightful (second) installment of Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States.
This upcoming week may be the last decently filled one for awhile since so many series take December off, so don't be surprised if my Week in Review columns following this one are sparse until 2013. The December lull is when I typically catch up on movies I've wanted to see, favorite old dvds and the like.
Now onto my preferred primetime picks from the week beginning 11-18-2012...
Although this column features a few less movie posters than last week, this installment includes links to six new movie trailers I thought were the coolest from this past week, with a couple favorite trailers (for different types of films) embedded.
The six trailers I'm highlighting this time out include a teen horror flick adapted from a comic book mini-series, a British comedy, a couple action pics and a pair of animated adventures. Firstly, I've chosen to embed the animated film trailer I'm most looking forward to, Epic, and a sexy relationship tale I think I'll be very entertained by, I Give It a Year (because I enjoy seeing Rose Byrne and Anna Faris in their underwear). The other trailer links, that aren't embedded but still noteworthy releases from last week, are for Killing Them Softly, Snitch, Jack the Giant Slayer, and Bad Kids Go To Hell.
My last column's poll didn't garner a single vote, which was particularly disturbing since now you can add any show you want as your favorite from the previous week. I'm hoping this new poll setup will eventually win some reader participation. I believe more programs will air this week than last, so look for a more loaded Week in Review next time. Till then Be Well, Have a Great (end of month) Week and Happy Viewing!
