Mr. Robot

Quotes of the Week: August 23-September 5

These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, not just from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

The Last Ship
CMC Jeter: We’ve taken our fair share of hits these past few weeks. Suffered painful loses. Sometimes it feels like more than we can bear. Yet here we gather. United. Shipmates. Every time we’re called, we answer: “Here I am.” We answer knowing that the world, the survival of our species, depends on our actions here at sea, and fully aware that we answer at our own peril, and still we answer: “Here. I. Am.” I’m not gonna put a silver lining around our pain. Today we grieve. And we remember our fallen and we thank them for their service to us and to mankind. Yes, today we grieve, but tomorrow we do press on. We continue to answer the call: “Here I am.”

Public Morals
Terry: Think of us as the landlords and, if you wanna stay in business, you gotta pay your rent.

Rookie Blue
Sam: The only reason I ever thought I could be a dad in the first place is because of you. Being with you has changed me. I’m a better man, which means I might actually be able to be the dad I never thought I could be. And I want to show that to you. I want to be that…with you.

Strike Back
Stonebridge: Aborting the mission’s an option.
Scott: No fucking way.
Stonebridge: Ha. Which we discussed maturely and both agreed on.
Scott: Thank you.

8 New Summer Shows…

Here is the list of this summer’s shows that I am most excited about checking out. Not all of them will be winners, but they either have an interesting premise or a cast that excites me. Check out the trailers below and let me know which shows you are looking forward to watching!

1. Texas Rising premieres May 25 on History, stars Bill Paxton, Brendan Fraser, Ray Liotta, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Oliver Martinez, Thomas Jane, Christopher McDonald, Jeremy Davies, Chad Michael Murray, Max Thieriot, Robert Knepper, Rhys Coiro, Crispin Glover, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Trevor Donovan, Jake Busey, and too many more to list them all. This mini-series tells the story of how the Texas Rangers started. It probably will not be historically accurate, but it has a great cast and looks like it could be interesting.



2. Aquarius premieres May 28 on NBC, stars David Duchovny, Grey Damon, Gethin Anthony, Emma Dumont, Claire Holt, Michaela McManus, and Brian F. O’Byrne. Taking place in Los Angeles in 1967, Duchovny plays a detective who is trying to track down Charles Manson and his cult of followers.
