10 Things I Can't Wait To See On TV This Year

It's too early in the year (and pilot season) to know exactly what TV in 2013 will bring us. But, with some of the best shows coming back to complete our lives and make us whole again, there are plenty of things to anticipate. Salivate on!

 

Game Of Thrones. Period.

I’m so completely in the throes of this show that short of having Hodor win the Iron Throne it can do no wrong. And even that would be endlessly watchable. “My King, the Lannisters have kidnapped all the kingdom’s puppies and are dangling them over ledges also winter is coming and we’re out of Hot Pockets. What say you my King?” “…Hodor”. Brilliant.

 

How They Wrap Up Breaking Bad

All I ask is that they don’t end the show as Junior’s dream before he wakes up for breakfast and goes to school. Also this is painfully accurate…

Well played Seth McFarlane. I wonder if anyone has ever written an article talking about how great and/or terrible he is. That should go well.

 

Warehouse 13’s New Gadgets and Artifacts

Great Sharktapus’s ghost I can’t wait for the second half of the 4th season. As is the case for all Warehouse episodes, I will to try to figure out what the artifact is before they reveal it on the show and try not to get stuck in a Wikipedia wormhole for the next 4 hours finding out everything I can about it. The entire series is on Netflix, time to get cracking on the catch up before April!

 

If SyFy Can Pull off Defiance’s MMO Component

Speaking of SyFy and watching their programming so scripted science fiction can still have a home, have you heard about Defiance? The mad wizards are attempting to merge a massive multiplayer online role-playing game with a television show so that what happens in the game affects the characters and the plot. It would be a neat hat trick if it worked and perhaps the start of a beautiful multi-platform entertainment relationship. If it doesn’t, have I mentioned Warehouse 13 is on Netflix streaming yet?

 

Finding Out The Date The Legend of Korra Comes Back

Just give us a date! GIVE US A DAAAATE. Unless they did and my googling skills are not what they used to be in which case, isn’t it fantastic/horrible that Korra is coming back so soon/not soon enough?

 

The 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who

It’s Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, and I expect gold. Wibbly wobbly, timey wimey, gold! I expect to not really know any Doctor before Eccleston (remember that guy?). I expect lots of British handsome. And I expect them to exterminate it right out of the park! …I may be expecting too much…nah.

 

How Will S.H.I.E.L.D Resurrect Agent Coulson

As it was said in Buffy times of old, in Joss we trust.

 

If The Walking Dead Will (Please) Kill Andrea

No, but seriously. Kill this horrible time wasting character before I feebly, impotently, threaten to stop watching the show for the billionth time. Or don’t, I’ll probably still watch.

 

Billith and True Blood.

The most amazing thing about True Blood is that it never had a mind to lose. It’s the most batsh*** crazy show that ever dirt humped, spine ripped and boobied into being and I can’t wait to yell at my TV some more this summer. It’s a bad, bad show and I can’t wait to watch the Billith out of it this summer.

 

Does Community Need Dan Harmon and Chevy Chase?

A question for the ages: can Community continue without its creator and show runner Dan Harmon or will the massive sink hole left by his ego consume the show whole? And, to a much, much lesser extent, will Chevy Chase be…let’s go with missed? Only time and DVR recordings can tell.

 

There’s so much TV to be excited for in 2013 that we can’t even begin to imagine (pilot season is a magical time). What are you excited about? Let me know in the comments!
