Quick programming alert: two Beemsville TV picks return for each of their second seasons this week.
On AMC, Hell on Wheels kicks off at 8:00 CST. You can watch trailers and plot-line lead-in from last season if you want to get on board or missed some episodes. AMC is also doing a Season 1 Marathon all day today (Sunday) as is their custom. We like this show because it’s a well-made Western with strong performances and interesting characters.
Tomorrow night at 9:00 CST, Grimm starts up again on NBC. Move on from your Olympic hangover with supernatural style. NBC’s site also has plenty of media and content to initiate or reintroduce you to Detective Nick, Monroe, and the Grimm-iverse. This show has old-school X-Files appeal, a well-conceived urban fantasy setting (easier said than done – just look at all the crap fantasy spin-off attempts), and interesting characters.
You gotta have interesting characters. Check them out.
