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.
Disclaimer: Clearly this list is only limited to the shows I’ve seen. Think I missed something? Let me know in the comments, on Twitter @ObsessiveViewer or on Facebook. Continue reading

Recently it was announced that Jimmy Smits and Donal Logue will be returning to FX’s juggernaut Sons of Anarchy Entering its 6th season this fall, the highest rated show in FX history has an incredibly loyal fan base filled with people who believe it is quality television.
Bringing back Smits and Logue is truly great for the show. Their work last season was a much needed breath of fresh air for a series that’s been stumbling for at least the last year and a half. However, while I loved Smits and Logue, I’m not sure their return will bring me back for another season of sloppy, convoluted writing on a show bloated with unresolved threads and a plethora of unlikable characters.
