TV: May 2011’s Television

Far later than intended, we have the May round-up posts, where I write a little about all the media I consumed throughout the month (June’s will hopefully go up next week, but haven’t been worked on at all yet). This month we start with the television I watched.

There are far fewer portraits this month but it's not because I watched much less television. Read on for the explanation.

Outside of this intro text and the above image everything was pretty much all written and ready to post by the 31st of May, so there was really no excuse for it not to go live on time. I’m doing things slightly different this month, commenting only on the shows that I feel I have something I want to talk about (and only doing images for those ones), so let’s get to it:

Television: April 2011’s TV

It’s time for each of April’s round-up posts, a quick overview and assessment of all the entertainment I consumed during the month. Having finally been on time enough last month to make goals this is the first proper opportunity to see whether I was able to meet them. This month kicked off with film, then it was books and then the month’s games, and we finish with April’s television.

Six new additions this month meant making this image wasn't any less time consuming.

Image sources: Doyle, The Host, Francis, Enoch, Brennan, Jonathan, Kitty, Rick, Alexei, The Doctor, Daenerys, House, Phil, Hope, Brian and Nicholas.

There are sixteen portraits in the image above (each representing a different season/series), compared to fourteen last month, twelve in February and just five in January. Despite that increase I did actually watch less television this month (which I’ll talk about in the goals section below), it just happened to cover more individual programmes. Let’s get to it:

Television: March 2011’s TV

April 18, 2011 1 comment

On time for once (and coming straight on the heels of February’s), here we have the March round-up posts. This month we kicked off with the books I read, followed by the games I played. Next up is the TV I watched:

That's right, this time I needed to fit even more images into this little space, though thankfully the majority carried over from last month so I didn't have to find new sources.

Image sources: Doyle, Jed, Francis, Enoch, Brennan, Kitty, the Turok-Han, Rick, House, Phil, David, Hope, Brian and Albert.

New this month to the TV round-up are individual verdicts, helping me to judge whether I should keep watching. They’ll either be Good (will definitely stick with), Okay (which means I’m not fully enjoying it, which could result in it being dropped if that continues) and Bad (which will probably be where I do stop).

Some general spoilers will follow:

TV: What I’m Watching

This post is a round-up of every TV show I’m currently watching week to week, in alphabetical order and with no more than a paragraph or two per programme. I’ve split it into three posts that will all be up within a week (they’re already typed and scheduled), and this is the second. General spoilers will probably follow for the season being discussed and anything preceding it:

Community (Season 1)

The very first episode makes a point of listing all the different types of people who attend a community college, which sets up the main cast that spans many generations, from youngsters fresh out of high school all the way up to Chevy Chase’s considerably older Pierce. What I like about the cast is that they’re all students and therefore all equals, none of them have actual authority over any of the others, despite the variety. The show wisely centres on ex-lawyer Jeff as the main character, who thinks he’s better than the college and hopes to breeze through it all as easily as possible, while the others mostly do their best to soften his cynical world view. So far it’s proven to be a very funny show.

Dexter (Season 5)
