These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.
Game of Thrones Lady Olenna: The Lords of Westeros are sheep. Are you a sheep? No. You’re a dragon. Be a dragon.
Grantchester Sidney: It’s one thing for someone to accuse you of not belonging. It’s another to know it in your heart that they’re right.
The Bold Type Oliver: Real is good. Real is what makes you who you are.
Younger Liza: You sure know a lot for denying you have anything to do with the stuff. Redmond: Well, what else am I supposed to do alone on a Friday night after an entire bottle of rosé and seeing an ex on Instagram with his new boy toy in Costa Rica?
Killjoys Gander: I can give you whatever you hunger for. Delle Seyah: Said every gross man ever.
Wynonna Earp Dolls: Neutral men are the devil’s allies.
Turn: Washington’s Spies Mary: The man you are is a man who would do anything for his friends.
Robert: Those whose sit on the picket fence are impaled by it.
Orphan Black Felix: My sister and I are orphans, you see, and, um, we could’ve ended up anywhere. We could’ve ended up in any family. And if we had, we would’ve been entirely different people. But my mum, Siobhan, this woman, come on, this woman… This woman, she chose us as her own. We are who we are because she carried two little London urchins on her wings to Canada. Watching her raise my sister, watching my sister raise her own daughter, finding my biological sister… it’s quite mad. It’s taught me that we are all… mysterious works of chance. Of choice. Of nature versus nurture. So, to my galaxy of women, thank you for the nurture.
Last week, I shared my list of new shows that I am most excited about, so here are the returning shows that I cannot wait to have back on my television in the next few months.
1. Shameless season five premieres January 11 on Showtime, stars William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Emma Kenney, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey, Joan Cusack, Noel Fisher and Emily Bergl. Somehow, this is still one of the most under-rated shows on TV. What are you all waiting for?! I love the Gallaghers so much. They make me laugh and they make me cry and I cannot wait to see what craziness they get up to now that it is summer in Chicago! Frank has a new liver, so anything is possible.
2. Justified the final season premieres January 20 on FX, stars Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins, Joelle Carter, Nick Searcy, Jacob Pitts, Erica Tazel and Jere Burns. I am very sad to be losing another one of my favorite shows, but I will say the same thing that I said about Sons of Anarchy in September: I do not want it to be over, but I also cannot wait to see what happens! Will Ava help the Marshals with their RICO case? Will Tim continue to be awesome? Will Raylan and Boyd finally take each other out? I am already on the edge of my seat filled with anticipation.
3. The Americans season three premieres January 28 on FX, stars Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Noah Emmerich, Annet Mahendru, Susan Misner, Alison Wright, Richard Thomas, Holly Taylor and Keidrich Sellati. This is another under-rated show that more people need to be watching. It is not a show that I necessarily need to keep up with every single week, but when I finally sit down and watch it, I am always impressed with the story-telling and the performances.
4. Suits the second half of season four premieres January 28 on USA, stars Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Rick Hoffman, Meghan Markle, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres. The beginning of this season spent a little much time with Mike working against Harvey as a investment banker, but now he is finally back at the law firm and Louis has discovered his secret. I am pretty sure that Pearson Specter is about the get “Litt the Hell Up.”
