This Presidential Election has been rather divisive, but I think we can all agree on one thing – it needs to be over. So after you cast your vote on Tuesday, why not take your mind off things with some TV. No, I’m not recommending you watch the 24-hour news cycle, I recommend checking out these election day-inspired episodes.
Earlier this week news broke that Nashville’s current showrunner would be replaced by Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick. Now on one hand this is good news for Nashville fans since it seems to indicate that a fifth season is likely; however, handing over the reins of a TV show can seriously alter the tone of a show, for better or worse.
It’s been another busy year of watching TV. Some beloved shows bid adieu, some jumped the shark, others enjoyed a creative resurgence, and many new excellent shows were added to my watchlist. To celebrate, here’s my ‘best of’ list for 2015. As always, this list is both subjective and ultimately meaningless. Cheers to the new year!
A lot of TV shows tend to either get better over time and end on a high note or trudge on long after they’ve peaked. What’s not so typical though is when a show is able to right the proverbial ship after a less-than-stellar season.
According to Wikipedia, ‘shipping’, which is derived from the word ‘relationship’, “is the belief that two characters, fictional or non-fictional, are (or will be, or should be) in a romantic relationship”.*
Other definitions I found online say about the same thing. A few made mention that shipping could be platonic, but typically its romantic in nature, and that’s what I don’t get. Why can’t fans be content with friendships?
