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:

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 one paragraph per programme. I’ve split it into three posts and this is the third. General spoilers will probably follow for the season being discussed and anything preceding it:

Modern Family (Season 2)

I don’t really have much to say about this except that I’m still enjoying it, it’s a solidly entertaining comedy and I like all the characters.

Stargate Universe (Season 2)

Wikipedia Fact: ""Fire" was originally going to be the title for episode four, but the story and script was too big to be able to fit into one episode, so the producers changed it to become a two-parter called "Darkness" and "Light", therefore pushing all future episodes forward one slot."

TV: Stargate Universe (S01E01 & S01E02)

Wikipedia Fact: ""

Wikipedia Fact: "Stargate producers Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper conceived Stargate Universe as "a completely separate, third entity" in the live-action Stargate franchise – as opposed to Stargate Atlantis, which was created as a spin-off from the first series Stargate SG-1. They wanted to produce a stylistically and tonally different TV series with a more mature and fresh story approach as not to get too repetitive."

Year of Broadcast: 2009 (UK broadcast six days behind US)

Starring: Robert Carlyle, Louis Ferreira, David Blue, Brian J. Smith, Jamil Walker Smith, Elyse Levesque, Alaina Huffman, Ming-Na
