This picture, my friends, is what we have to expect for much of the next three months.
No, I don’t mean to get your hopes up for a TV adaptation of Killzone, unless Sony is working on some PlayStation channel that I am unaware of. But with the season finales last night of American Idol (meh), Revenge (bleh) and Law & Order: SVU (still on the air I guess?) we saw the official end of the 2011-2012 television season, nevermind that Awake still has its finale airing tonight (or that Mad Men, Game of Thrones, etc. still have a couple weeks to go, because those cable channels are rebels, man).
Fortunately there are some bright spots on the horizon. Louie will be coming back for its third season in June, and Breaking Bad will start ramping up for its grand conclusion in July. True Blood is coming back as well I guess, but there’s really very little that show gives us nowadays that a niche fetish porn site doesn’t. These are but the few pools of water in what is the desert of summer, however.
So if you can, start stocking up now. For once in your life, act like a Glenn Beck disciple and start hoarding for the end of the world, only instead of collecting gold and freeze-dried food, collect episodes. Download like crazy. Catch up on Downton Abbey if you haven’t yet, find the entire series run of Taxi, watch LOST in its entirety for the
fifth sixth seventh time. Do what you need to survive. Because after the world ends, there are no rules. Only victors.
