So by now you’ve probably burned through all eight episodes of Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and even re-watched the movie for the millionth time, but don’t you just wish you could go back to summer camp yourself?
When the sharks started flying last night all your usual entertainment sources were live tweeting in full force, as was NASA and NASCAR although we’d later learn that they were in on the joke too. But they weren’t the only brands to get in on the Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! action.
While channels like AMC and HBO aren’t infallible, they’ve got a decent enough track record to warrant at the very least casual interest in any new series announced. After all, you never know what’ll become the next Breaking Bad or The Wire. But that doesn’t mean you should limit your viewing to networks that can lay claim to having an Emmy award winning series.
A year ago when Halt and Catch Fire premiered I eagerly tuned in. A show about the 80s home computer boom sounded interesting and I loved Lee Pace in Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies. Plus, I don’t watch Mad Men (don’t hate, I can’t watch everything) so any comparisons to AMC’s flagship series, for better or worse, was kind of a moot point for me.
