It’s been a pretty incredible year on AMC, with shows like “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men” returning for excellent seasons. Now another great AMC program will be back soon with Season 3 of “The Walking Dead” which has joined those shows as cultural icons. The devotion of each of these shows is intense, as evidenced by the ratings, the awards and the activity on Twitter. Fans love these shows as they scoop up memorabilia, visit a poster frame depot to hang their posters and then play video games in the case of “The Walking Dead.”
To build buzz for the new season, AMC recently “zombified” some famous celebrities in some gory and cool photos. If you look at the horror sites online, all you see is stuff from “The Walking Dead” so it’s safe to say there will be plenty of attention.
AMC is just one of many cable channels that have been changing television with these quality dramas. The formula is much different from network TV, as here true artists are given the creative freedom to express themselves without focus groups and studio executives dumbing everything down. HBO led the charge years ago, and fortunately many others are following this formula. Now, the quality of stories is better on cable TV as compared to most major movie releases. Enjoy!
When it comes to watching “New Girl,” one’s level of appreciation is directly proportionate to how one feels about the concept of “adorkability,” which Zooey Deschanel brings to the small screen in seemingly limitless quantities as Jess, a too-cute twentysomething who moves in with a trio of guys on the heels of an excruciatingly bad breakup. As with most ensemble comedies, it’s taken time for the chemistry of the cast to find its feet, but it’s coming along nicely.
Are you ready to enter your pool for The Oscars? It’s that time of year again as movie fans and celebrity aficionados watch all the award shows and the red carpet events. Some are boring, and some are fun when you have edgy guys like Ricky Gervais hosting the events like he does for the Golden Globes.
But the real action is at the Academy Awards. Las Vegas sportsbooks post odds on the events, and countless people enter into pool with their friends or at the office. Michelle Williams is naturally getting a ton of buzz for her role in “My Week With Marylin.” Playing an iconic sex symbol certainly doesn’t hurt when you’re looking for attention at award time.
Many of these pools are online, as that’s where much of the fun is these days, from online fantasy sports to online bingo. To update yourself about latest free bingo offers, visit super free bingo sites. This week it’s the Super Bowl getting all the buzz, but the Oscars are definitely the next big thing.
Go online, do your research, and you might just win your pool. Look for experts like Roger Ebert and others like him.
