Watch With Amanda’s TV Pick Of The Week: American Horror Story

I have braved my crippling fear or the horror genre by catching up on this season of American Horror Story: Coven. Luckily the creative writing, impressive acting (I’m looking at you Kathy Bates and Jessica Lange), and a damn good soundtrack has made up for any nightmares it may have caused.

My pick of the week to celebrate the forthcoming Halloween and Biff Bam Pop’s 31 Days Of Horror is American Horror Story: Coven’s fourth episode “Fearful Pranks Ensue” airing this Wednesday on FX. Check out the trailer below and read on for a brief synopsis of what witchy things we can expect this week.

Watch With Amanda’s TV Pick Of The Week: Glee


Glee’s third episode of the season which airs this Thursday at 9pm is titled “The Quarterback” and will be a tribute to Finn Hudson, the lovable football jock with the heart of gold.

Cory Monteith who played Finn Hudson during the first four seasons of the show passed away on July 13th this year at the age of 31. An autopsy revealed that the actor died of “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.”

The episode was filmed about a month after Cory died, and the emotion is real. Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy recently said in an interview, “What you will see in the episode is what really happened,” Murphy said of the hour. “…those performances that you’ll see, almost everything in that episode is from the first take of every performance because the actors and the crew had a really hard time shooting it. I’ve never seen a crew that you can’t continue shooting because they’ve left the room sobbing”

Watch With Amanda’s TV Pick Of The Week: Sons Of Anarchy

Yes, Breaking Bad is done but that doesn’t mean that wonderfully written, life changing, mind blowing television goes to the grave with it. Case in point: Sons Of Anarchy.

This pick of the week was hard for me, because after last week’s episode ended, it looked like we could be saying our final goodbye to my favourite character. Who knows what this week will bring, and that’s the beauty of Sons Of Anarchy, and its creator Kurt Sutter. He isn’t afraid of or influenced by what anyone thinks, so all of these situations are coming from that messed up head of his that we love so much. If his vision includes violently murdering someone that we care for so much, he’s going to do it and not even think twice about it. Check out the trailer for Episode 4 “Wolfsangel” below and read on for some more thoughts on this week’s episode airing Tuesday night at 10pm. OBVIOUS WARNING: Major spoilers ahead if you’re not caught up.

Watch With Amanda’s TV Pick Of The Week: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I’m so worried for my DVR. This is the week where we all get serious. Our favourite shows are coming back, new ones are starting, things are overlapping. I have serious anxiety about what I’m going to watch, what I’m going to record and when am I going to have the time to see it all! It was really hard to pick just one show as my TV pick of the week. I chose Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because you can’t really go wrong. People are already talking about it, you know it’s going to get the ratings, it’s based around a well-known and well-loved character, and… Joss Whedon. Check out the trailer and read on for a quick synopsis of the series and what you can expect from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Game Of Thrones: Season 2 Recap & Season 3 Preview

I have no idea how we lasted without Game Of Thrones for almost NINE months, but let’s begin by giving ourselves a pat on the back for staying strong. Now our reward is coming to us in 3 days, when Season 3 of the epic fantasy series once again takes over our lives. Nine months is a long time. We all could’ve carried and birthed a child in that time, making it more difficult to remember where we left the characters when Season 2 ended. Below you will find a quick recap to refresh your memory and then keep reading for some Season 3 scoop! Read the rest of this entry

Watch With Amanda: Best Moments from The Office

NBC announced last week that the hour-long series finale of The Office will air on Thursday, May 16th at 9:00pm. The finale will mark a major milestone with it being the show’s 200th episode, wrapping up nine seasons of the hit comedy series. Former Scranton boss Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) has confirmed that he will not be returning for the finale (we hope he’s bluffing), but former employees Ryan (B.J. Novak), Kelly (Mindy Kaling), and Gabe (Zach Woods) will make an appearance in the finale. The “Scranton Strangler” will also be revealed when Toby visits the accused in prison to determine his true guilt.
