TV show fans, you will take April seriously!
Your schedule will be busier than Frank Underwood’s agenda on House of Cards, so get your diary and your red pen ready:
April 5th: Mad Men is back for the season finale (more on that in a future post)
A new exciting show, coming straight from the BBC, Wolf Hall will also premiere that day on PBS. An historical drama chronicling the rise of Thomas Cromwell, King Henry VIII’s chief minister, as he navigated the corridors of power in the Tudor court. Starring Damian Lewis (yes that’s Homeland’s Brody!!!) in tights! I’m in.
April 9th: The Comedians (FX). Billy Crystal and Josh Gad star in the sitcom about a comedy veteran who gets paired up with an up-and-comer to co-host a late-night talk show. You had me at “Billy Crystal”.
April 15th: I don’t need to remind you it’s Game of Thrones season 5 premiere.
April, 17th: The Messengers on the CW. The storyline: “a mysterious object crashes on earth and a group of unconnected strangers die from an energy pulse it emits, but then re-awaken to find out that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse”. I’m not holding my breath for this one, but let’s give the show a chance…
Happyish: comedian Steve Coogan stars in this new comedy about the pursuit of happiness, filling in for the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Can he work his British magic and make this a great show ? The answer on Showtime, April, 26th..
That’s all folks!
