Don’t Call Me During…: Midseason 2012 – Sundays


It’s the time again as I shock and awe you with how much television I think I’m going to be able to watch.

Returning/New Shows:

9:00 PM – Girls (HBO; 1/13)
The show I love to hate. It got better as the season wore on especially when Adam (Adam Driver) became more than just Hannah’s (Lena Dunham) weird one-dimensional not-boyfriend. I’m concerned that Dunham will address her critics too much this season. After the backlash for the lack of minorities in Girls‘ version of Brooklyn, could casting Donald Glover as a potential love interest be too much of an overreaction?

9:00 PM – Game of Thrones (HBO; 3/31)
Erwin swears to me that this will be the best season because it’s based on the best book of the series, A Storm of Swords.  I wouldn’t know. I refuse to read the books mostly to annoy him. I just hope it’s not like the first two seasons where we spend half the season introducing yet more new characters until the plot can really move forward.

9:00 PM – Shameless (SHO; 1/13)
Am I the only one who thinks the show would be 100 times better if Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy) left and/or died? They haven’t figured out how to make his character work and I don’t think they ever will.

10:00 PM: House of Lies (SHO; 1/13)
I would abandon this show but it stars Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell. I’m not ready to admit this show isn’t good.

10:30 PM: Californication (SHO; 1/13)
I actually last season was pretty good until the closing minutes of the finale in which another ridiculous misunderstanding will keep Hank (David Duchovny) and Karen (Natascha McElhone) from being together (which would allow the show to finally end for good).

The Rest:

8:00 PM – The Simpsons (FOX)
8:30 PM – Bob’s Burgers (FOX)
9:00 PM – The Good Wife (CBS)
9:00 PM – Revenge (ABC)
9:00 PM – The Walking Dead (AMC) (2/10)
10:00 PM – Happy Endings (ABC)
10:30 PM – Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23 (ABC)
