The Americans, on FX
Amazon; Amblin; A.V. Club; FX; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; TWoP; Wikipedia

Haven't been able to see it since I don't get FX.


Boardwalk Empire, on HBO
Amazon; A.V. Club; Crave; HBO; IMDb; Sky Atlantic; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; TWoP; Wikipedia

One of many HBO shows I've heard of but never got to see because I don't get that network. So... maybe I'll see it someday, maybe not.


Covington Cross, on ABC
IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I vaguely remember reading about this before it premiered, and it seemed like something I'd like to see. But I didn't get ABC at the time, so I never had a chance to watch it. And it didn't last long. Still, it'd be nice to see what little of it there is, someday.


The Darling Buds of May, on ITV (UK)
BritBox; IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; Wikipedia

I must have seen a tiny bit of this on PBS or something. I don't recall anything about it, but I know it's something I'd like to try watching from the beginning, someday. And Catherine Zeta-Jones was in it.


Deadwood, on HBO
Amazon; A.V. Club; Crave; HBO; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; TWoP; Wikipedia

A western that sounds cool. But I don't get HBO. So... I dunno, maybe someday I'll see it. (I'd probably put the review under "westerns," of course.)


The Lot, on AMC
IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; Wikipedia

I guess the first season of this was just four episodes, which I probably saw, but I don't remember anything specific about the show. There was a longer second season which I never saw at all. But I'd like to see the whole series sometime.


Matt and Jenny, on Global (Canada)
IMDb; TVarchive.ca; TV.com; Wikipedia

This was a bit before my time, I reckon. But at some point I must have seen reruns, or something. It starred Megan Follows, of whom I was a fan from Anne of Green Gables, though she was in this show before that miniseries. Anyway, I never saw enough to get an idea of the show, but I'd probably like to see it someday.


Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, on ABC TV (Australia) / Netflix (USA)
ABC TV; Acorn TV; IMDb; Netflix; Thrilling Detective; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

Not sure when I'll get a chance to see this, but if and when I do, I might want to put my review under "legal & detective dramas."


Oliver Beene, on FOX
IMDb; Sitcoms Online; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I feel like I must have read good reviews of this when it was airing, and probably checked it out. But I don't remember anything about it other than the title. And I kind of think my feeling toward it turned out to be kinda "meh," but I don't remember for sure. I must not have watched much of it at all, maybe an episode or two. Maybe I didn't like it, in which case I should just forget about it. But looking at info now, it had several stars of interest to me, so I'd like to check it out again sometime, and see how I feel about it now. Heck, it's even possible I didn't have a chance to watch it, for some reason, rather than deciding not to. I just don't know.


Peaky Blinders, on BBC Two (s1-4), BBC One (s5) (UK) / Netflix (USA)
BBC; Caryn Mandabach Productions; IMDb; Tiger Aspect Productions; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia
streaming sites: Amazon; iTunes; Netflix; Vudu

I don't really know anything about this except that I really want to see it.


Pennyworth, on Epix
Amazon; Batman Wiki; DC Comics; DC Database; Epix; Gotham Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This is set in the 1960s. It's about Alfred Pennyworth and Thomas Wayne, you know, future butler and father of Batman, respectively. (It may or may not be a prequel to Gotham.) That's pretty much all I know about it, but I'd like to see it someday, if I ever get a chance. For now, I can't.


Rome, on HBO (USA) / BBC Two (UK)
Amazon; BBC; Crave; HBO Shop; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; TWoP; Wikia; Wikipedia

I didn't get a chance to see this, on account of not having HBO.


The Tudors, on Showtime
Amazon; BBC America; CBC; Gold Label; Hulu Plus; IMDb; Showtime; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

A historical epic, or whatever. I dunno. I don't get Showtime, but I do want to try to check this out someday.


The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, on ABC
Amazon; Amblin; IMDb; Lucasfilm; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

Okay, I didn't see much of this, and don't remember it well, but it was good. Oh, and after you click that link for the IMDb entry, also try searching there for just "young indiana jones" to find a whole list of other TV movies in the series. I tend to think of it all as the same thing, anyway. Well, I don't know what else to say about any of it. It's all sort of prequels to the theatrical Indiana Jones movies. The title is rather self-evident, though, isn't it? (If I ever get to see this whole series and write a proper review, I'm not sure if I'd put it under "period" or "action/adventure.")
