Call The Midwife, Game of Thrones & Spartacus: War of the Damned

Just some quick thoughts on 3 shows that I love.

I had no idea that Call the Midwife (Sundays, 8pm EST on PBS) was back on, but then again I haven't been watching a lot of television to catch the ads. It was a nice surprise for a Sunday night.

-An interesting turn of events that Chummy is going off to Africa for 6 months. That came out of no where.

-It seemed like Jenny was having second thoughts about Jimmy but I don't feel bad that for her. Jimmy gave her plenty of chances and it's too late for them. Fate is making them move on, in separate directions. She'll get over it.

-It was nice to see the character development of Cynthia, instead of just a filler background character. Hopefully the writers will continue to develop her character. I did get teary eyed when the baby died. That was a great scene.

Games of Thrones (Sundays, 9pm EST, HBO) really didn't get interesting until about half way into episode 2.

-Not impressed with all the fat references. I'm guessing that the writers aren't too fond of fat people? Or it could be that way in the books. I have no idea because I have yet to read Game of Thrones.

-Joffery and his soon to be bride, that's going to be an interesting alliance. She'll have to tread lightly, because he is crazy as f***.

-Arya & Bran Starks story lines were the only ones, that really held my interest. I can't wait until Bran transform into a wolf.

Spartacus: War of the Damned, (check your local listings for times & channel) season 3. I caught up on this season, Sunday morning, while I was waiting for the furnace people to come. You know one of those we'll be here between 1-6 deals. Anyhow, I'm still ticked, that they killed Crixus, last episode, because he was my favourite character. A great warrior and partner to Naevia. Boo to the writers!

-Tiberius was a prick, good riddance to him. He had no power so he had to resort to rape. He deserved everything that he got.

-This show is so gruesome sometimes. I don't know why I continue to watch it. I cringe at every splatter of blood and sound of metal piercing flesh and yet I come back. The writing is great, as are the actors in their roles. I just feel like I'm standing there with them, in real time.

Is anyone else enjoying these shows on Sunday night?
