If you’re sick of being told “Oh my god you HAVE to watch this show” consider this your first warning because April is here and it’s coming in HOT. So clear up your DVR’s and Netflix queues because shit is about to go down.
Archer Season 8 April, 5 FXX
Everyone’s favorite spy is back and he is coming hard. Seriously, are we still not doing phrasing? Archer Dreamland somehow seems to be taking place during the 40’s or 50’s in LA and the whole crew is present. This is one of the best animated shows on television and is pretty much guaranteed to make you laugh every episode and chances are you wont even get half the references they make. Seasons 1-7 are on Netflix so whether or not you’ve seen them before go back and watch them again because why not that’s why.
Better Call Saul Season 3 April, 10 AMC
The Breaking Bad saga continues with BCS and if you’ve been watching for that sweet sweet nostalgia factor you’re about to be rewarded greatly for your time. We’ve watched Jimmy McGill swindle, con and outsmart for two seasons now as he so elegantly skirts the line between moral and immoral, but will this be the season he finally makes the jump from criminal lawyer to criminal lawyer? With Mike Ehrmantraut and now (spoiler alert) Gus Fring back in the mix, chances are things are about to get real… bitch.
The Leftovers Season 3, Final Season, April, 16
The Leftovers started off very bizarre, as is expected from writer David Lindelof most known as the co-creator and showrunner of TVs biggest mindfuck LOST. The only difference when it comes to the Leftovers is he actually seems like he knows where he’s going with this one. After taking 2016 off, Season 3, slated to be the final season of the Leftovers is set to bring some closure (hah!) to this ridiculous ride we’ve been on since the Departure happened in 2015. To try and sum up what’s happened in that time would be more psychotic than the actual events themselves. So climb out of the well, put on your best karaoke voice and
prepare brace yourselves for whatever is going to happen next.
Fargo Season 3, April, 19 AMC
Aw jeeze, Fargo is back and I think it’s safe to say it’s going to have us in quite another pickle. Show creator Noah Hawley (also did Legion which is worth watching) confirmed that Season 3 would again be loosely connected to the past two seasons, with yet another brand new cast.
Ewan McGregor as Emmit and Ray Stussy
Carrie Coon as Gloria Burgle
Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Nikki Swango
David Thewlis as V.M. Vargas
Jim Gaffigan as Donny Mashman
I’m not going to try and break this one down, just tune in and see where it goes. Okay then? You betcha.
American Gods Series Premier, April 30
So I read the book for this one and when I heard they were turning it into a TV show I was immediately excited. The author, Neil Gaiman, is one of the best Sci-Fi/Fantasy writers around right now and American Gods is no exception. The story is centered around the idea that the old gods in culture such as (and no, no one expects you to know who any of these are) Czernobog a Slavic god of darkness or Loki a Norse God of mischief and trickery are at war with these new Gods who preach technology and money. Some war is going to go down and the main character Shadow somehow gets sucked into all of this. Yeah, it’s weird. But considering Thrones isn’t coming back until July maybe you can make room for something out of the ordinary on your Sunday nights.
