I’m not big on award shows. I don’t like the self-congratulatory nature of them and I can’t stand the politics behind it. Having said that, I didn’t watch the Emmys. I thought about it, I even intended to watch them and livetweet them the next morning. But I didn’t bother. I’ll still share a few thoughts about them here, albeit several days later.

This is the time of year when I get bogged down with all the series I follow. Some shows fall by the wayside while others get picked up if word of mouth or marketing is strong enough. Obviously I can’t devote a post every week (like with Bates Motel or Under the Dome) to every show I watch. So here’s a new weekly series I’m going to try my best to work on as the fall TV season unfolds.
I’m already off to a semi-bad start considering this was meant to go up Sunday. But I’ll try my best in the future to post these when I intend them to be posted.
Before you start reading, I must warn you that this is a SPOILER HEAVY list, obviously. Read at your own discretion.
I wrote this in response to the end of season 3 of Game of Thrones. When I first started watching the series, I wanted to read each season’s corresponding book before I watched the adaptation. Given the length of the novels, my impatience and fear of being spoiled I stopped about 1/3 of the way through the second book and got caught up on the series.
Thankfully, I avoided all spoilers for the end of season three. What I got in return was one of the biggest “HOLY SHIT” moments in recent television memory. It’s the moment everyone has been talking about and now that I’ve finally seen it, I’ve been inspired to make a list of the most tragic moments in television. Enjoy.
Universal Monsters: Complete 30-Film Collection (Blu-ray Set Challenge) OV List Challenge 2019 – Roger Ebert’s “Great Movies” Starting to work on a project for the website/podcast for October of this year. As such, my full review of Dracula (1931) will post on ObsessiveViewer.com on October 1st. So it's still a ways away. For now, I'll say that thi […]
Obsessive Viewer: 20 Director Challenge - Round 1 - 4/20 Jimmy Stewart's performance is spectacular in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. That's a given, I'm sure, considering how iconic he and this movie are. But when the film reaches the end of his filibuster Stewart's delivery, his mannerisms, and the emotion through every line of dialogue […]
Obsessive Viewer: 20 Director Challenge - Round 1 - 3/20 I was pretty much completely unaware of this movie before I started making my 20 Director Challenge list. It's a sci-fi action/thriller from 1995 involving Y2K (in the movie it's just referred to as 2K), conspiracy, and a black market that deals in discs of POV footage and feelings recorded t […]
2019 Weekly Comedy Challenge: 6/52 - (Week 6: A W.C. Fields comedy) OV List Challenge 2019 - Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" To be completely honest, the main reason I was excited to watch The Bank Dick was because one of my favorite sitcoms while I was growing up (Wings) paid homage to it in an episode with the same name in which Brian (Steven W […]
